Extremely good phone; umm, as long as you handle it like a piece of glass. I had mine for two weeks and dropped it on a case protected edge from less than 10 inches and the screen busted. I figured clumsy me, ordered a screen, and replaced same. What I discovered when I opened the phone is that 100% of the structural integrity of this phone isprovided by the screen and ONLY the screen. Not a good design.
Two months later, the second screen cracked in the middle, right across. This is a known issue with the phone, so much so that even though I voided the warranty, Nokia aka Microsoft Mobile was kind enough to send me a Lumia 830 as a replacement.
I figure if one uses this phone, keeps it in their purse, you might have a shot. But if you are going to use a pocket or even a belt mount, forget it. The unit is simply too fragile. Even the 830 they so graciously gave me I am having doubts about.
After installing windows 10 on my lumia 820, it doesn't recognize my Bluetooth head set (Jabra). Any suggestions? Overall working well.
If you have a question on windows 10 TP for phones you can ask me here, since I have put it on my daily phone Lumia 1520 actually I have navigated to all the corners and I know well what's working and what is not working fine.
I AM USING WINDOWS 10 TP, HERE ARE THE GOOD THINGS
1. It looks better than windows phone 8.1
2. Qwerty keyboard is excellent, even when using the full keyboard I can reach letter Q very easily when typing with one hand
3. Battery life is better than in 8.1, some people won't trust me on this one!
4. All native apps look elegant they only need polishing to remove bugs, every day I send feedback about areas that need fixing
5. The action centre is the best
Waiting for the next update which will bring more good things

Last days of Nokia's demise, it was released much fanfare soon after launch it was discounted, ad I had One. Perfect even find a lame excuse can't find. But next 1530 1540 are now dreams.
