It's better be bloody cheap. Something like Lumia 610 price. Our store managed to sell only 2 Lumia so far when we sold plenty of iphone 5.

I dont know what Nokias obsession with thick phones and wide bezels? The 810 is one of the uglier phones i have seen.
Lol you cant even personalized this phone with wallpapers just to make unique or different from other windows phone.
Heavens will not fall if Nokia makes one android phone just for testing the response...
Not having SwiftKey and swype or any third party keyboard, launcher is a huge disadvantages
Please add then
lilly, 14 Dec 2012nokia dont make their phones anymore. They are made in Asia.Nokia do make their own phones. They own their factories fully to 100%.
lilly, 14 Dec 2012Is this the biggest Bezelz I ever seen?? Thick and Heavy phones. Nokia going backwardsThick and heavy for you may not be the same thing for others ;)

I understand there are those who like it - mainly, I think, because they haven't held a Windows Phone - but I don't have an agenda to convert people to WP.
Saying "avoid" means you have a clear agenda as a fanboy, and that you are threatened that people might actually like what you are asking them to avoid.
Wow its looks just as exciting as all the other boring ugly tiled lumias.No different to the otjers and still overpriced and limited with apps.Avoid
still no support for native video calling?
even my good old Nokia N95 support the features.
this phone is worst than Symbian phones.
Inspired with iPhone 4 design.
The design on its back cover makes the phone degraded from having the overall "WOW" factor. If you guys are aware of the upcoming BlackBerry L-Series, you can see how they redesigned the whole look of their old BlackBerry Touch phones.

I too love the colour choices/ removable covers of the 820, but 40 hours battery (going by the GSM test) isn't enough for me as a heavy user, as I wouldn't get through a day on one charge. However, if there is ne thing to realise about the many and various opinions about smart phones today, its that they all have their strengths and weaknesses, and I totally agree that if I could deal with the battery life the 820 would be a great choice, although on balance I still think I'd prefer the 810!
JackTheRipper, 14 Dec 2012Great review but lousy outdated phone.The great review states that this is a good phone.
lilly, 14 Dec 2012nokia dont make their phones anymore. They are made in Asia.My first Nokia phone (a 6230) was made in China and it gave me no problems in 2 years. I sold it while still working perfectly, so what's your point?? Nokia has factories all around the world, most manufacturers have found production costs are far lower in Asian countries. As far as I know Nokia has factories in China and Korea as well, so current devices are still made by Nokia.

Am I r... moreYou're right about the battery, but the Lumia 820 has scratch resistant glass too (just like the upcoming Lumia 620). Corning Gorilla Glass is just a brand, there are several scratch resistant glass manufacturers among the world, just ask the Sony and iPhone users who doesn't have Gorilla Glass at all.
Considering I wouldn't mind charging my phone every 1.5 days I would prefer the extra color choices and overall better appearance the Lumia 820 has over the 810. Just my two cents
