ddas, 02 Aug 2013I'm planning to buy this & m an Android user. So wanted to know how dis device is? Wat kin... moreHey there ??
Windows Store has many good games like angry birds,asphalt6,modern combat 4 etc. As for subway surfers and other games,we just have to be patient enough till MICROSOFT releases such games.
WhatsApp is smooth and nice and yess SKYPE is supported.
so,do buy this beauty!
Nokia Lumia 820 user form May 2013, Serbia, Telenor Mobile operator....
Signal receiving - fantastic, where colleagues with other brands of phone have problem with signal receiving, Lumia 820 receive H+ (the same Mobile operator)...
Voice call clear, data receive in sec.....
Hardware performance - no lag, no matter how many apps open; lag in games very rear (3D motorcycle ....)
Apps. - all what I need appear in WP store during time.. but it is true, all make apps for Android and iPhone (you can see over many websites, e.g. Banks, Web radio-stations, BOSH site apps for android but not for WP, etc.), rear for WP and many of them for WP not work on WP8 (only WP7)...
Battery - with all ON, last barely to the end of the day (of course with calling, surfing, music listening...), if turn OFF some apps, stuffs etc., with short calls, essential surfing and manual e-mail checking, (no games, no music listening) second day at the evening is the last moment to charge battery... I practice to charge battery when about 35% full... I have best results when manage battery on that way...
Camera - back cam. excellent, front cam. very poor indoor, nice apps. form NOKIA and others for photo manipulating and editing....
I do not like lack of file managing apps., poor customization of sounds (only ringing can be set but with PC you must transfer proper file in Ringing folder, for other sounds you only have to use what Windows allows you),
I miss some indicator that I can visually notice that I receive (or miss) something (call, sms, ...)
Other - Mobile Windows Office in combination with Sky Drive, back up all your photos,... in Sky Drive, .. maybe some time before this should be essential but now with open-era for document the same have all others.... I like WP Office, especially Note..
At last, I did not regret buying this phone, and awaiting Amber update...

Ken, 02 Aug 2013Plz is nokia lumia 820 with opera mini app and CNN app?No Opera Mini for Windows Phone. About CNN I'm not sure.
Out of all devices and OS I currently use, I put so much hope that two giants like MS and Nokia will beat them all, but I'm very much disappointed... OS lacks for every decent function or app you may expect in a decent smart phone... that's it.
I was Nokia Symbian fan for quite sometimes. Then I switched to an Chinese Android. When my Android age is just about a month, I bought THIS Lumia 820 (black) and I was so disheartened. So much so, I even thought of selling this (piece of $h!8) after 1 month of use..!!!! Made me realize how happy I'm with my non brand Android phone.....!!!
* Can't manipulate files... like, no effective file browser. Once I downloaded an mp3 album in a zip file. It played the song but after that I couldn't even find where it was downloaded.
* Very poor battery life... if u put it in performance mood.
* Not a good apps collection to download.
* Bluetooth connectivity problem with other device.
* Can't configure camera to different resolutions and quality.
Anyway, hardware's other aspects are good. like AMOLED display, Carl Zeiss lens, Dual core 1.5 GHz, 1GB, 8GB, uSD upto 64 GB etc....
Only if OS was Android any version >= ICS.. ;)
(Windows Phone really $uck5)

NikiWP, 01 Aug 2013Price can't be different for each place. In my country Lumia 820 is about USD 480.aactually prices are usually different in different countries, in developed countries phones tend to be more expensive. in my country the cheapest price I have seen for lumia 820 is USD340 which is a fair price according to me
