Summary: The Nokia Lumia 820 smart phone is undoubtedly one very valid that focuses on the quality of the camera and the photographic industry in general, on the display, LTE connectivity, design, applications, and included the possibility of wireless charging, even if the kit must be purchased separately.
Pros: Carl Zeiss lens; Band support LTE, front camera; Possibility of wireless charging, Wi-Fi and NFC, the new operating system.
Cons: Autofocus is not perfect; Memory not expandable; Autonomy not high; Weight.

Pros: Speedy performances, Interchangeable back cover, Solid, sturdy built
Cons: Lower-res screen, Camera not as well featured
Nokia Lumia 820 Review: More Control, Slimmer, and Reasonably Priced
5 April 2013
Excerpt: Nokia Lumia 820 Review Most of the attention of the Nokia Lumia line-up went to the flagship, the Nokia Lumia 920. However the younger sibling, the Nokia Lumia 820, is quite a gem itself. It sports nearly identical internal specifications and comes with a smaller form factor at 4.3-inches.
Summary: The new Lumia 820 , together with the flagship Lumia 920, marks the start of a brave new era for Microsoft and, crucially, Nokia.

Summary: The Nokia Lumia 820 is a great phone. It’s not exceptional, but it easily beats the average on most aspects. Nokia’s apps aren’t much of a liability, and it isn’t bloatware either. It adds a lot of value onto Windows Phone than you’d expect and there are no gimmicks here.
Excerpt: At the start of this year Nokia launched its first Windows 8 phone in the shape of the Lumia 920, which also is their new flagship model. It's a very capable smartphone with a beautiful screen, optical stabilized camera and features wireless charging. It was not a cheap phone, however.
Conclusion: The display won’t win any awards with that low resolution and you won’t become the next Annie Leibovitz with this camera, but for $50 you get a comfortable design, speedy performance, and a well-designed operating system. The Nokia Lumia 820 is a good Windows Phone 8 handset for a good price.
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 820 is a very competent phone, and there is no doubting its consistency in terms of performance. The unfortunate thing for the Lumia 820 is the fact that the Lumia 920 gathers all the attention, and this remains as a footnote.

Summary: Colorful midrange. After Nokia has seemingly assumed a leading role in developing smartphones featuring Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8 operating system, the Finnish manufacturer suits the action to the word through the second model following the Lumia 920.

Cons: Too heavy and unhandy in category comparison, Middling headset, Poor front-facing camera, Temperature development during load, The apps in Microsoft's store still have to grow strongly before it can compete with Android and iOS. Also a lower temperature development during load would be desirable.
