Nokia Lumia 810, 820 and 920 reviews from PhoneArena

| November 14, 2012 | 14 Replies

Here’s a triple feast of Lumia reviews 920 and 820, including T-Mobile’s 820 variant, the Nokia Lumia 810. Whilst some of you prefer the 810 design over the 820, PhoneArena thought it was boring even ugly but they do like the snappy performance.


Nokia Lumia 920


  • Stylish looking color options
  • Superb low lighting camera performance
  • Great image stabilization
  • Crisp looking display
  • Useful Nokia apps


  • Bulky feeling
  • Nagging call quality issue
Nokia Lumia 820


  • Built like a tank
  • Great Nokia apps


  • Poor camera
  • Sub-par call quality
Nokia Lumia 810


  • Snappy performance
  • Good low lighting camera performance
  • Same WP8 experience as the Lumia 920


  • Ugly and boring design
  • Speaker quality is sharp & irritating

Cheers Sonny for the tip!

    Forget about PhoneArena, the reviews are completely bias towards iPhone.. Look..

    Im waiting for gsmarena’s review but Iphonearena saying that all 3 lumia’s has call quality issues? whats going on? Nokia is usually renowned for their amazing call quality. Could WP8 be a issue?

    • Viipottaja

      Have not noticed any problems with mine. Could it be their unit or network?

      nope,every other reviewer said call quality is good. this dude even said the 820 camera is not so good, while engadget said it very good and even takes very good low light photos.
      by the way the 810 is bigger than the has the same size as the 920.

      and johnnnnnnnnnnnnn v is a apple fan boy.he bashes every windowsphone and android he gets his hands on. it’s always a good device but…and finds problems to complain about.and frak he is so creepy when he smiles. i wish he stopped showing his damn face in the videos. people like how he says his name and kept bugging him to show his face, now it’s in everyvideo

        The PhoneArena review of the 820 is pretty fair. The camera is better than the 800’s but not brilliant. No problem with call quality so far on mine though.

    Call quality issue on Nokia phone……….??? Cmon phonearena, check your network and do the call quality test from clear area, not while sitting in your underground bunker……… Apart from this their review was good, praised Lumia 920 on lots of aspect……. I even saw comments of many users who were not happy with reviewer’s comment on call quality, some of them were saying that they had Lumia920 and didn’t faced any call issues, phonearena might have got faulty handset……….

  • kes

    phone arena is one of de worst sites to go for any news on nokia. Dey bias to both nokia and blackberry.

  • Muerte

    Call quality issues are total BS. These phones are among the best in terms of call quality.

  • Ztuka

    810 reminds of a fruit thing regarding design actually. Hehe
    Rather nice in a main stream opinion…
    Alright according to me, nothing to say about really.
    Have heard the opposite when it comes to call quality of 820…
