it needs protection, CORNING GORILLA GLASS and this is v.important.
Mid-range Lumia 820 has an excellent features.
....buying is in big question ?
doubting, whether Nokia would survived to support it in future ?
cheap, 12 Oct 2012A big sorry ! for all gorilla...... customers. no gorilla glass on lumia 820 international ve... moreGorilla glass 2 in Lumia 820 is absolutely sure. They haven't put it in the specs sheet because on the announcement day they were so perplexed so that they forgot to ask and confirm this detail. The outdated symbians have gorilla glass, how could the new flagships not have such?
cheap, 12 Oct 2012A big sorry ! for all gorilla...... customers. no gorilla glass on lumia 820 international ve... morehow did you know huh? Lumia 820 has gorilla glass too (just like 920) because it is a high end/flagship phone. Sometimes GSMArena's specification are really wrong/not accurate try reading it sometimes they say "not 100% true and correct". Try visiting Nokia website that's the accurate and 100% true and correct.
A big sorry ! for all gorilla...... customers.
no gorilla glass on lumia 820 international version,only scratch proof coating on cheaper glass.
It is confirmed from a reliable lumia screen manufacturing source.
Specifications is quite good,similar to other pricy smartphone.
....but the presence of Corning gorilla glass screen will determine whether to buy lumia 820 or not ?
The difference between Lumia 820 and 920 sim free is that for 100-150€ less you get a phone that:
-is equally cool,
-is a bit more pocket friendly,
-has 8gb inbuilt, but 32gb expandable (64gb is
-has clearblack instead of puremotionhd, but it is a superb display also,
-has amoled instead of ips tft, that'd mean cool screensavers,
-has smaller battery, but better expected
efficiency (smaller amoled screen with lower
-is probably a little bit faster due to lower res,
-is able to change the back cover and battery by the user,
-has an excellent primary camera instead of an
extraordinary one, and a vga secondary instead of a 1.3mp one, but who cares...
Lumia 820 rocks!
am a big fun of Nokia only thing that makes me a bit sad on it its the core is dual-core 1,5Ghz would be best of the best if they gone in quad core at least !! on all other specs NOkia rocks for me !!! trust phone with life 4 years ++
Let me show some Brand Loyalty. I have been a customer to Nokia since 2005 Feb, when I bought Nokia 1100. And then Nokia 6600, Nokia 5233, Nokia 701, Nokia Lumia 610 followed... Why again to break the chain. Will go for this 4.3" Mini Comphone the Nokia Lumia 820, when it arrives here in Vizag this November/December 2012. Atleast my wish for a large screen will be fulfilled..
I would like to have a multi-faceted phone (Smartphone) that should be multi-tasking as well as a large screen one >5" and should have a user replaceable battery and atleast Corning Glass.
My Options are: Nokia Lumia 820 and Samsung Galaxy Note II, the main dilemma is the antenna in Note II is open to air and is not covered.
That has a 5.5" Screen...! Please help.. I don't like to have a stylus operation..
Lumia 820 SD card memory support has increased from 32gb to 64gb now.
but no more gorilla glass on this phone, only non-scratchable coating on cheaper brittle glass.
Lumia 820 at US $ 650 ?
Don't worry Nokia !
A dozen better/cheaper flagship in the markets right now for all smartpone shoppers.

val, 07 Oct 2012Where are you getting your prices from? European prices never correspond to US prices. The Lum... moreIt's sorta ridicilous if you think the phone only costs 50$ or whatever in the US.
You pay like 100$/month for your cellular service, we pay 10$/month for the same contract.
Obviously the price of the phone has largely been hidden into the cost of the contract, we have it the other way around, we actually pay the retail price for the phone and we dont get ripped off with ridicilous contracts.
