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.
Shifa, 05 Aug 2014I m thinking of buying.ths phone....shud I go fr thsSure bro,what price you getting it at ?
1. Nokia 3200 (2004-2006) 2 years
2. Nokia N91 (2006-2011) 5 yrs

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.

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.
jmason, 24 Jul 2014This is an excellent phone. It picks up WiFi from long distances, being its a phone. Some pe... moreyour mini review of this is really good. you should do a more detailed review once cyan is out but the dev preview i have might just be almost just exactly like cyan, so...
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
