Weak battery backup for net browsing is the main issue. otherwise, this phone processor speed is quite superior to many others mid range
Hi friends i am using this Phone just 3 days,,,great performance gud camera clarity gud display clarity gud sound in phone speaker and headset and keyboard,,but one main reason of this phone battery backup is very low,just getting with out net usage 14 hour,,using. Net and calling it's getting 7 hour battery back
up.otherwise the phone. Will be ok..
I am going to be straight forward and totally frank !
I have a Blackberry Bold 3, Samsung Glaxy Note 1 and now I just purchsed a Nokia Lumia 820 5 days ago.
I love the BB for a lot of stuff, I love the note for some other spefifications(only for frequent texting I find it too big) and this time I went for the Lumia because I thought it would have been a great bet.
I am disappointed, FLAT !
What is a phone if it freezes every other time? How can Nokia even agree to release a phone in the market that is not compatible with all memory cards? They know about the competition that is in the market, people shouting their heads off, Iphone Android this that and they deliver a phone that hangs up at least 7 - 8 times on moderate use.
How is it even a reliable phone?
I love the look of the phone, I love the live tiles, I love everything about it, except, 8 GB internal memory, which is too little and then the phone does not accept all memory cards and now it freezes like a crap handset!
I dont know what is the issue, hardware, software. But I cannot believe that I have been given a defective set among so many others listed below !
I purchase the phone and it hangs up within one hour of use ! what crap? I have deleted half the apps on the phone and I just cannot figure out what is causing the issue. I took off the memory card, turned off NFS, Bluetooth, internet pack and used it. and blank. FROZEN ! I text, it freezes, on whatsapp it freezes, on facebook, frozen, changing settings, frozen, on a call, frozen, viewing pictures, frozen. so randomly it freezes. Cant even figure out the cause.
I dont want to give up on the phone, I am going back to the store and going to get it fixed no matter what, or I am just gonna go back to android !

anasvt, 24 Jan 2013I found only white colour.which is best colour? Choose black. I like the matte finish of black. Anyway you can change the back cover later to other color so your phone becomes stylish.

I just pint the whatsapp tile and it will show unread message.
Because the Windows version of Whatsapp lacks feature, I have to do this to save power ie Android version can customize sound notification and I usually disable it as well.

Without the use of data always on, Lumia 820 can last more than 1 day as well. My Galaxy Tab 2 also can last 36 hours without data. Galaxy Tab 2 has larger battery 4000 compared to Lumia 820 1600 Mah.
I hope Portico update can make Windows Phone uses power efficiently.

I've been waiting for this phone since and, I bought it a week ago.I love everything about this phone, it's more stylish and much better than the previous one. But there's 2 things this phone pisses me off: 1.It's internal memory, it's only 8GB and Nokia said "not all sd cards are compatible with the device, so we advise to store your data in phone memory." How can I enjoy out of this phone with such low memory. And the last thing, this one really sucks, 2: The battery life. I charge almost everyday with just texting alone. What if I use some apps so maybe I will charge every hour? Haha. Even with the battery saver is on it's still sucks. Does anyone experiencing this on your lumia's battery life? Well, despite of those CONS, lumia 820 is still a great phone.
can someone please list down the pros & cons of this phone? please! i need it very much!
