Pocket-Lint: Nokia Lumia 820 Review – “This IS the phone you are looking for”.

| November 12, 2012 | 57 Replies


So we’ve seen a whole wave of Nokia Lumia 920 reviews, now it’s the turn of the Nokia Lumia 820. This one comes in from Pocket-Lint.

They previously demolished the 920, despite all the innovations, because it weighed 185g (despite other phones in that weight being very popular in the UK). So how will the 820 fair? Well, this is the Windows Phone they’re recommending. Not the 920 or some other device. But this one.

  • They like the design, “
 It is a phone that is much more manageable, much more sleek, much more appealing. It is still a muscle car to Jaguar’s E-Type, in its approach to design, but here it works, especially when you opt for the tough cover.

Interesting snippet regarding the camera:

Images aren’t perfect of course, and this isn’t going to compete with top-of-the-range compacts or DSLRs, but it’s not to be sniffed at either. The camera performs above average compared to other smartphone

Well, the only camera that can compete in that regard is the 808, no :).

  • Display apparently is not disappointing, but crisp and enjoyable. (I wonder if it would be any faster since there’s less pixels to process than the 920 as it has the same processor that’s driving the 920)
  • They like that the 820 has super sensitive screen too so they can keep their hands toasty warm when it has been “bloody cold”.
  • Battery life not as good as 920 but good enough for a day (wireless charging available)

Pocket-lint sees the 820 as the phone that has the features people want. Removable battery, micro-SD and an OS that stands out.

If you are tempted by Windows Phone 8, this is the phone for you.

Cheers EK for the tip!
