Nokia Lumia 820 review: Backup squad

22 November 2012
Back up against the wall, Nokia looks to the launch of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones as a make or break moment. Itís not essential for the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 to become bestsellers, but itís absolutely vital that they convince users of Microsoftís mobile platform's potential...

Sort by:

The best phone ever that I had. It's fast slick and very responsive. It has a pretty good camera, front and back. Few glitches here and there, but don't all phones have those. The only down side is the battery life for me. But you can get a better battery from eBay for 5 bucks. Windows phone is something that I love about my Lumia 820. And live tiles look awesome.
Lumia 820 lover right here :)

Can you separate the volume like music on its own, ringtones on its own, games on its own?

alvinator, 12 Dec 2012Will the 820 run on tmobile in usa at high speed?Yes. I get hspa. Liked the option of the colored shell and the wireless charging the T-Mobile 810 lacked, btw I'm in a refarmed area (Longview TX)

I have the galaxy note Sgh-i717 and I never have liked all the junk apps on Android, but I liked all the things you get for free. I read about wp8 and how all the bloat ware can be uninstalled. So I purchased the cheapest wp8 I could get. Its the Nokia 521. I use Facebook and YouTube and on Android tubemate. My cheap Windows Phone downloads free videos and music. You have to transfer them to the sd card with a PC. I am buying a new phone on the 1st and I could buy a S4 or a Windows phone. Price limit is 500.00. My decision is the Lumia 820. Reason why, Penta banded, still can download free music and videos, no rooting to get rid of bloat ware, and finally zero lag plus the memory expansion slot. My friends are the same as I am, its so damn stressful to have a phone lock up on you. Also I like the squares i don't have to go thru a lot of apps to find the info in seeking. Its right on the desktop.

Hi everybody here,

I am not using Nokia for a while since I was not happy with the Business Class Mobile Phone yrs ago, the quality of the phone really bad, especially with their E series.
Till lately i try to get a Nokia back for a try.
I am very impress with the price, firstly then the software feelings. GOSH I LOVE with It as same as Apple OS. Off course Apple OS system is best! As i am using Nokia Windows 8 Phone because it is coming with MS Words and Excel.
I am not using this for Game so i am not very fuss on the quantity of the Internal Ram as comparing with Samsung or Apple that with 16mb ram.
So far i am happy as the price is affordable and it suits us with little price comparing with Apple and Samsung! Thanks Nokia, and looking forward to see the future development of Windows 8 phone!

I do not know in your country the price really diff or not? As from my side here it is not much diff so i get the 820.

Should I go for 820 or 720. I don't play heavy games and love a good camera. I can buy other country drive+ later when commercially available. Need long battery life and loud ringer. Which camera is better. Please help. Thanks.
