What are u 5 to drop it? you have rubber hands? And yes, the display cracked because of the rigid wood surface and the fact that the bigger the display the bigger the crack risk because it gets more flexible
Shifa, 05 Aug 2014I m thinking of buying.ths phone....shud I go fr thsyes it's still very good even after almost two years old now coz they future-proofed it with 1gb ram. the camera is excellent even though it's not pureview and you will be surprised that video recording quality is actually better than photo quality. though the screen is weak as i have scratches coz i never use protector on my phones. i wanna know how tough really are phones are. and it also just yesterday got an update so it's really way better now and it's like brand new.
but i suggest if you really like the 820 you can actually compare it with the lumia 822 coz it's slightly better than the 820. has more internal storage and the 820's front cam is just a joke. i hate it. good luck.

This phone was designed before Nokia was bought by Microsoft. Honestly... Most smartphones can't take drops and stay alive. I see plenty of iPhones and Galaxy with broken glasses/screensso what's your point? Learn to take care of your phone, get a good case for it and you're set.
Regarding WP, you should have done research before getting this OS. Just like you said, apps to SD are now possible with WP8.1 so I don't see what's wrong with it.
when when when cyan update is not for my 820 Why Why Why how hard could it be relese it now please
Bad Hardware quality. My Lumia 820 dropped from about 70cm on a wooded floor and the Display crashed(not the glass, the Display inside). This is not Nokia quality that I knew! My last 5 smart-phones were Nokia and I had no HW problem with them. Now since Microsoft bought Nokia it seems that quality was left behind... Also the WP8 OP is really a crap, there are some unbelievable missing feature like installing apps/games on SD-card. Most of these problems will be fixed in WP8.1, but too late, personally I am done with Nokia even I was a big Nokia fun. My next phone for sure will not be Nokia.

yes, you are very right about the loudness of calls but it's really odd coz on viber calls it is loud compared to network-based calls. have you tried that?
skype voice calls are also not loud enough.
the camera is more than enough for me i don't miss my 808 anymore though i still bring the 808 on special occasions just in case
and my favorite part of the 820 too is the wifi signal is just strong. and of course i have 3 spare batteries when i'm really out on a long bike ride and staying in hotels. hotels have chargers anyway so i don't bring chargers of course. i dont wanna be a wall hugger haha
This is an excellent phone. It picks up WiFi from long distances, being its a phone. Some people say they don't hear me loud on a call other than that, its a great phone.
The software is nice. I dislike the way it receives calls and dials, for example you must save a contact's number saved with the area code (even locally), otherwise it won't show caller ID properly. Likewise, if you dial without area code, it won't show who you are calling.
Overall, its reliable, has decent cameras and it is a good buy.
You can get the update joining the preview for developers programme. Simply download "preview for developer" from the store. Then login into this.
Microsoft has started rolling out Windows Phone 8.1 Update (for Nokia it would be Lumia Cyan Update).
Track the availability of Updates in the following link:
In India, Lumia 925 & 625 has already recieved the updates. Expecting update to hit 820 with a week or so.
Guys check it out...
