  • Summary: To sum up the whole experience with the Lumia 820, we would state that the Windows Phone 8 seems pretty impressive because of the fluid user interface and stable performance. A few downsides on the hardware front, such as the camera performance and the glossy surface of the display and shell, can be ignored.

Nokia Lumia 820 ( black, AT&T)

CNET
10 April 2013
  • Summary: The Lumia 820 is a solid Windows Phone 8 mobile, but it won't set the world on fire. Its swappable covers, good camera and slick and Windows Phone 8 software are great, but it's rather thick and heavy, the screen is pretty average and its battery life isn’t wonderful either. It's also expensive compared to competing Android phones.
  • Pros: Nokia's additional apps and services are worth having; Design is refreshingly different to most smart phones; Windows Phone 8 is slick; Good camera; Expandable memory.
  • Cons: Thick and heavy; Screen isn't very impressive; Below par battery life; Windows Phone 8 is lacking in app support; No wireless charging mat included; Expensive.

  • 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. For these specs, Nokia should essentially have pegged this in line for competition with the HTC Windows Phone 8S. Instead, with a MOP of roughly Rs. 27,500, the Lumia 820 is overpriced.
  • Pros: Looks good, Multiple colour options, Display handles text rendering very well, Black levels on the screen are impressive, Wireless charging with accessories
  • Cons: Display has low resolution, Back cover opening mechanism is poor, We believe it is priced higher than it should have been

Nokia Lumia 820 Review: In Depth

Recombu
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: It’s easy to look at the Lumia 820 and think it’s a poor-man’s Nokia Lumia 920, but the Lumia 820 is a fantastic phone in it's own right. Windows Phone 8 is exceptionally easy to use, the screen is great and it's well built, without the bulk of the Lumia 920. Marry this with a lower price point, removable battery and microSD card support and it's actually a more accessible phone that deserves to be a success.
  • Pros: Comfortable to hold, Removable memory and battery, WP8 has some great features, Nokia apps
  • Cons: WP8 app support is limited, Screen resolution is a little low, Camera results are disappointing

Review Nokia Lumia 820 Smartphone

Notebookcheck
20 January 2013
  • 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. A timeless design meets a decent camera and numerous proprietary apps in the Lumia 820. The manufacturer demands 499 Euros (~$667, RRP) for its new midrange device.
  • Pros: Good workmanship, High-def, 4.3 inch AMOLED screen, Windows Phone 8 intuitive use, Connectivity includes LTE, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, Swift hardware, Pleasant application speed, Decent camera incl. LED, Battery life, 2 year warranty, The available performance, the swift operating system and the proprietary apps that are installed free of charge.
  • 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.

Nokia Lumia 820 Review

Digitaltrends
17 December 2012
  • 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. It makes an excellent ambassador for the Windows Phone 8 OS.
  • Pros: Beautiful display, Comfortable design, Speedy performance, Good call quality, Hardware shutter button for camera
  • Cons: Low-resolution display, No Gorilla Glass, Uninspiring camera

Will Nokia's latest Windows Phone 8 entry capture the hearts of the masses?

13 November 2012
  • Summary: Nokia didn't pay much attention to its 820 during a grand unveiling in New York in September. Saddled at the end of a press event, it felt like the forgotten Lumia child. And the reality is that while the 820 might be attractive to some thanks to removable covers and different colors, it's more likely that you'll want to purchase a Lumia 920 instead.
  • Pros: Removable covers, Wireless charging, Good size for one handed use, Bright (but low-res) display, Solid performance, Optional wireless charging
  • Cons: Display and resolution, Camera can be hit and miss, Boring design, Resolution, Camera can be hit and miss, Boring design
