On the fun side, i wish they could make different looking phones like the X7 again, which looks like a fighter jet for me. That would really be a show stopper. :)

So if u have all the knowledge in the world why not make sensible comments and stick to ur point.
Nobody (atleast not me) is interested in what u do or don't want in ur phones or how many symbian phones have u owned so far.since u now have started ur crying here,y don't u keep ur stupid thoughts to urself.
The point was about the build quality but u started narrating the story of ur life n ur doing that now too.i am not a 007 but u sure r a seasoned troll. The last two lines luk bizzare to u coz they r addressed to a guy like u who doesn't know where he is or what is being talked about.
As far as comprehending goes see what my post was and what was ur reply to that.don't bother replying u being a troll will always be in denial.

Seeing what purports to be a reply, I do sometimes wonder I made a mistake in attaching my comment to Smatterings

For those of us who actually can follow a line of thinking, the 820 is NOT a fantasy phone and is 0.2 inches display less than the Lumia 920 4.5 inches

The lumia 920 is heavy and at 185g is HEAVIER than the qwerty slide NOKIA N900 (181g)

LUMIA 820 MICROSD REMOVABLE BATTERY 160g
LUMIA 920 no MICROSD non REMOVABLE BATTERY 185g


We are posting these comments on the site where the specifications are listed in full and despite that you have ABSOLUTELY NO KNOWLEDGE (et al) of either phone


My next phone 04/2013 is the Lumia 820
MY FANTASY PHONE IS THE 920 microSD removable battery @ 160?

Albeit weight is a problem with the 920 but for those who actually have OWNED Nokia phones (3 Symbian Smartphone) It is the EXCEPTION for Nokia to be "Applesque" in not having these two features.

The last two lines of your reply are quite frankly bizarre and I apologies for waking you up, feel free to READ & COMPREHEND BOTH THE LUMIA 820 AND 920 REVIEW and post RELEVANT comments ..... if you are able
(007 you ain't LOL)

My point was that's if true it would be a welcome change.be it difficult or not,that headache shouldn't be ours.all we r concerned about as a consumer is the final product.

But what can people like us when we get this you r stupid and racism type of replys for even comments like "nice phone" from these trollers so if we get a 'not bad' reply in middle of them i get it really hard to identify.
And Oh and about the ultraHD , these trollers troll without even looking at its photo . So i suggested it so that atleast by looking at hd photos and then say.

> In reply to Ed007 @ 2013-01-04 14:17 from U@5@ - click to readI didnt say not to do it dude. I just only said that plastic is better than metal for connectivity i only said it is unlikely that they ill make a metal lumia with same design (mind you) SAME DESIGN . And this news is just speculation not official statement right . There were many of such speculations about ceramic galaxy , Liquid metal iphone . This is just one of them and thats why it is unbelievable . if nokia some how finds a solution for that then its more than welcome to me too. But my logic says if they could have made a metal lumia with SAME DESIGN then they must have done it in the first place . Why going for weaker plastic .

There was a statement some back by some designer at nokia that a side mounted flap for the sd slot would've spoilt the luks of the lumia on the otherwise plain right side.

So you can't derive features (like missing SD slot) from it, can you?

> In reply to Apple or Nokia @ 2013-01-04 12:30 from IaHH - click to readAs if using current materials have helped the lumia reduce the weight n thickness.I don't know how it'll impact the wireless charging but if nokia have decided to go with the material they must have put some thought behind it.That's for nokia's engineers to worry,not me and not you.am not trying to make u understand anything,just stating my opinion.
The rest of ur comment is irrelevent.don't know why are u describing ur fantasy phone,the faults of nokia as a reply to me.i can't do anything.mail nokia and tell them ur requirements not me.

It's not that it's the first phone on the planet to come with so many connectivites.so u don't need to worry about that.there r many phones out there which have shown us how to do it.u don't need so many plastic strips.i think u too need to see the youtube videos of such phones on how it's implemented.i don't have any problems with the current material used by the finns,i just welcomed the change.u can't do much if they actually decide to go through with it can u?the most u can do is not buy it.

> In reply to Ed007 @ 2013-01-04 06:12 from U@iG - click to readI really do NOT understand how Aluminum is lighter than polycarbonate and if used METAL, how does that affect WIRELESS charging

The issue Nokia need to address simply this
COPY THE 820 FEATURES INTO THE 920 and if they can get the weight down to 160G I would be more than happy!

The 820 IMO is better despite only having 217 PPI to the "retina display" 332 PPI of the 920.

The 820 diaplay 4.3 inches the 920 4.5 inches display but comes with MICROSD and removable battery (carry a Spare)

I really do NOT understand how 2 phones which started life out together can end up so differently

W8 gave Lumia's microSD expansion, yes by all means get the weight down, but don't make the same phone again unless it will be called the 920S

For A phone with so many connectivites how many plastic strips will you recommend . Every thing is easy in theory but its hard to practically impliment bro .

> In reply to Syfer @ 2013-01-04 03:15 from uvt$ - click to readWP 7.8 is 505 not 520 my bad there. By the way I'm not trolling, I'm asking and I have no reason to do it. I already seen 920 and saving to buy one, you don't have to tell me that. And why is 920 got in here? Did I mention it? NO! In your reply to me, you over reacted in it. What's the connection between an ultra HD screen with my comment? And how did I troll in there? How can you say that I have no idea about wp? And for your info, I had used one.

The only answer here in my comment to you is "720 is the wp8 version of the lumia 710" that's all and the rest is your over reacted and unconnected comments.
