Nokia Lumia 820 review: Backup squad - read the full textBack up against the wall, Nokia looks to the launch of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones as a make or break moment. It’s not essential for the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 to become bestsellers, but it’s absolutely vital that they convince users of Microsoft’s mobile platform's potential...


Sort by:

Which one is better lumia 820 or the recently launched lumia 720?
The spec-to-spec view is conflicting.
Battery - 720 > 820
Front Camera - 720 > 820
GPU - 720 > 820
RAM - 820 > 720

I bought this today. Screen looks good, though smaller than Samsung S3 but PPI is good.
Bluetooth sharing did not pain till now. I imported my contacts from my old phone Nokia X6.

I wish there was a file browser in this phone, may be an app will serve my purpose. Setting the mp3 songs as ringtone is still not a straight forward matter. You will have to use Zune for this.

I have Focus S. I recently bought a droid attracted by its customization. Once I started using android I felt terrible. No proper contact management. It can't come near WP. You need to download app for SMS (stock Sms app is crap). Configuring mail in android is pain. Please don't buy android by seeing its app and customization. The real core features missing in Android.

Is the pixel density of the screen satisfactory? Are images pixelated? I would be having my first WP8 phone and I'm thinking of buying this one. Though I'm not a maniac when it comes to ppi's it would be a great bonus for me.

So guys, how do you find the screen of this phone? Thank you very much!

I am considering buying this phone but I am wondering if the 8GB internal memory will be enough for installing apps ? (if i am not wrong we cannot install apps on the SD Card, right ??)
I believe a few Gigs will be taken up by the OS & Systems Apps so actual left for user to install apps shall be limited..
What do u think guys ?

I think Nokia Lumia 800 Looks way better than Lumia 820.. The unibody design on Lumia 800 looks great!! Guess why Nokia didn't design something similar for 820 too!!

I would say that the dolby headset enhancement pretty much levels the beats audio of this particular HTC. The Desire has much better sounding speaker though.
