Nokia Lumia 820 is a less expensive option for the Windows phone crowd.

The Lumia 820 has got stuck behind the shadow of its bigger brother since it was released, but if there are any phones representing the vision of Windows Phone 8 different phones for different people – that is this next - generation Lumia. Avoiding the family monolithic design, this phone has an outer shell that can be disassembled and can work with many types of housing: glossy, not glossy, super durable and capable of wireless charging. It is a good option, providing a bit hardware customization before you start tapping around the Live Tiles and customizing the color schemes.

Under the lid, there is a removable 1,650mAh battery, with access to the expandable microSD storage. The other specifications consist of 1GB of RAM, the same 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor employed in the Lumia 920 and a 4.3-inch OLED screen, 800x480. Although with the same ultra-sensitive capabilities available found on the other new Lumia. On AT & T, it will cost $50 paying in advance, which is equal to half the price of the 920, while in the UK, it costs $540 for a SIM-free version, compared to $667.5 for the larger model. At this reduced price, you will not have optical image stabilization system of sample Nokia, but you will still have Carl Zeiss lens combined with an 8MP sensor. Therefore, there are some understandable disadvantages compared to the Nokia’s standard phones and its two greatest strengths, but how does Windows Phone 8 perform on a cheaper phone? Join us to learn more about it.

The Lumia 820 has been craving for advertisements at the epic conference event of Nokia and Microsoft, with the primary focus on new technology was introduced to the Lumia 920. Is it unfair? Maybe a little, and while the 920 was directed toward to the design philosophy of the older Lumia phones, the 820 took the different method. The edges aren’t as rounded, and while the phone is quite heavy with a thickness of 9.9mm, we had little trouble while exploring the screen and handling the phone with one hand. With 5.64 ounces (160g), it is another heavy Nokia phone. In short, it is 15g lighter than the 920, but still heavier than the HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S. It feels thicker, but based on the 4.87x2.7inch dimension, it is not as difficult to use as the 920. However, more importantly, it is capable of Qi- standard wireless charging beneath that color. While it is not pre-installed into the hardware, it does not seem to add much to the weight or the thickness of the shell and the device itself.

While we like the yellow glittering, the soft wireless charging shell did not show the high-ranking feel we had from the Lumia 920 a few weeks ago. It is not bad: the removable shell provides access to the battery, and this is the first Windows Phone 8 that comes with microSD expansion (supports memory cards up to 64GB), which means that you have more time after filling 8GB built-in storage.

The design has nothing to blame, but to us, it does not look like the Lumia. While the 920 is a part of Nokia’s "Fabula" series, the phone's design can be compared to the Lumia 710. The button layout goes after the Windows Phone template – there are three capacitive buttons below the screen, with 3 physical plastic buttons along the right edge. The two-stage camera button is rather over sensitive – the phone often took photos when we just wanted to focus, which made you disappointed when you were trying to capture those unexpected photos. Along the bottom edge, you will find a micro-USB port next to a single speaker that is quite loud - we just needed to type the middle settings for a pretty good playback volume. Just on the screen, a VGA front-facing camera will be likely to handle video calls (admittedly low resolution).

Inside, you will find connecting via NFC, 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.1 support and A-GPS as well as GLONASS - Nokia does not take shortcuts with its positioning skills. The Lumia 820 does not skimp on the radios either, with GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900MHz), UMTS/HSPA + (850/900/1900/2100MHz) and (the 4G model) LTE (800/900/ 1800/2100/2600MHz) bands. Unfortunately, there is no MHL support through the micro-USB port (and no HDMI socket) so you would expect Microsoft's  SmartGlass application to accomplish your big-screen hopes and dreams.

However, there are some little touches that made us disappointed, like the plastic surface is around the camera unit and the physical buttons. There is no detail on the microphone here, while the big screen includes the border around the AMOLED screen, the phone’s edge along with the casing around it makes the phone look wider than it needs to be.


The Lumia 820 offers a 4.3inch screen, a trivial 800x480 resolution; something is more appropriate with a latest-generation Windows Phone, not the beginning of a new era plays role as a potential third force in the smartphone world. Yes, it is an RGB Stripe AMOLED screen, but they've recognized that the white colors are tinted a little slight blue, especially when comparing it to the 8X HTC and Lumia 920. Nokia's ClearBlack technology makes the black colors turn into black, but we think we have seen something that is very similar (but not exact) on the Lumia 900 - it has the same size, the same resolution and the same AMOLED technology.

While this is not entirely a bad thing, based on outdoor admirable performance we saw there, we come back to the same problems with the resolution that we had. We pointed out the lack of qHD or 720p resolution before Microsoft removes low resolution requirements of Windows Phone, and 6 months later it is still a problem. Moreover, it's even more prominent in front of its own PureMotion HD+ brother, and there is no reason to justify when the phone is $50 cheaper than the Lumia 920. The Windows Phone logos and Live Tiles look brushy on this screen, but the gap between the two new Nokia smartphones is particularly prominent during web browsing and reading on the screen on the Kindle app.

However, the Lumia 820 shows a better viewing angle than the Lumia 920’s, which has a higher resolution (not AMOLED) and the device is also processed with the same ultra-sensitive capacitive screen technology, that means you will be able to navigate through Windows Phone with gloves or even nails. However, you should know that the glass here is only scratch-resistant; it is not strange toughened Gorilla Glass found on the other phones of Nokia and on rival hardware, so we will refrain down our enthusiasm to scratch it.
