My opinion: good OS, good specs, good features, bad battery life. I definitely want more battery, even if it takes more thickness, it better have a 20mm thick version and have a huge 7000+mAh Li-Ion battery. If a phone is designed with a user replacable battery, then why not to have a 'giant battery' version?

It does CPU tests and everything.
Booya-Ka-Cha, 22 Nov 2012you have no idea what you're talking about.. and clearly you're hear just to bad mouth!
firs... moreAt least I don´t need to insult in order to make my point, which is very objective and unbiased. I own Windows, and Apple products, no Android. I have had only Nokia phones since inception, my first non-Nokia phone was a year ago. I clearly don´t have a specific interest in badmouthing anyone. I limit myself to stating my honest opinion. In this case, with all my grief, I must say that both Microsoft with W8 (the 3 versions of it), and Nokia, are not looking too good.
I used to criticise a lot Android, but the fact is that they have manage to make Android a really good product, probably in par with OS in terms of usability and much better in terms of flexibility. So clearly the best mobile OS currently out there.

Now, as we appreciate the 820 review, can we have the mothership 920 review? Because we all want that!
Nokia Lumia is growing up and try to against Samsung and Apple's device.
Great phone, good review. But you kept comparing it with Android devices and not the iPhone.
That's a bit unfair because the WP OS obviously doesn't have as many features or as good hardware as the Android devices, making it stand out as a downgrade. But to the consumer features and hardware isn't everything.
Compare it more to the iPhone (as you usually do in most reviews), which is one of the best selling and most appreciated phones on the market, and you'll find that the arguments about OS flexibility and hardware are much weaker. As a competitor to the iPhone the WP running devices appear much more appealing to the market, except for the power users. So it's a pretty unfair review in my honest opinion.
This is great phone. Now i'm thinking of iPhone or Lumia. No need of android for me.
READ THIS NOKIA:
1. Install decent camera and audio
2. Lower your price tag
If you want to sell lots of this device, offer decent value for money...remember you have lots of droid competitors and WP still behind iOS and Android in terms of apps
Nokia never learn...what were they thinking to put mediocre camera and not so good speaker on this device..plus the high price tag.
Fix those 3 problems, and sales will surely go up.

I installed this app to my old galaxy SL and it is really amazing and I am just wondering the flexibility that android gives. It is almost like using a brand new windows phone. Worth recommending to all.
I don't understand is it very expensive to add in radio fm module? Nowdays all smartphone have built-in fm radio with rds and also ability to recording. Not so many people have money to subscribe on line radio data.

why not add the ability to scrub through a song... there better be an update soon to allow that ability. seems like such a silly thing that should be standard on any phone
Troll Detector, 22 Nov 2012You are a Troll!! Windows Phone is sexier than any operating system out there.looooooooool... that is awesome.
Thanks for making my day with this hillarious comment...
wait you're being serious?!?!?
How's your quadcore chips now? L820 beats SG3 easily in the benchmark test. Knowing that it uses only Dual core kraits.
Again it boils down to the proper utilization of CPU&GPU together with its OS.
