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.

How do you put the power on ?
I almost never use the start button, tap 2 times to wake up the phone. But when I have to use it it works well.
