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!

Personally i dont encourage to use Samsung or Android as i'm the victim of Galaxy S2 which encountered numerous Auto shut down and restart whenever i turn on WIFI and phone frequently hang and my friend is victim of Galaxy Note. Now im considering Window 8 UI as many good comments on this phone such as very smooth.

I can't compare between the two because I don't have a Note. But do you mean Note I or II? I heard complaints from people who use Note that the phone becomes unreliable (hangs, slow) after some time.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2013Hi all, just to seek your opinion on Lumia 820.I'm a android user. How's the switch from andro... moreYes there's so many voice recording apps on Windows marketplace. Just find it.
Windows phone if very different from android, Ios or symbian. Everything is sky based. The UI customization is so very limited. But there is so many features that makes a user happy. The Metro UI is the best UI that makes user loking for task quickly. Every elements like People, Messages, Marketplace, etc and another apps are in panorama oriented. You can chat to facebook and other social media easily and directly from your messaging. You can view the profile and photos of your FB, WindowsLive friends from poeple contact listing. You can also Update your status or Share pictures directly without any third party apps. There are so many elements which is updated by social media.
On side of apps, its cool but need some more time to be comparable with google play, and ios store. Microsoft anounce that 45 of 50 useful apps in google play are there on windows marketplace. But the category of apps are good enough, you can pick for the one that suits your need. One of the good thing about windows marketplace is that there is proper and careful app tesing and verification. Apps are only about 120,000 but free apps are many.
