    It's got high power and a beautiful display screen. It's fairly small, and even though it's slightly heavy, it makes you feel like you are holding an actual phone as opposed to a piece of cardboard. The best part of this is having the removable charging shells. If you drop it and scuff the back or edges of it, just replace the back and everything is awesome again. It's got a great design and is almost being reawoken or reborn in the upcoming Lumia 640. It is a shame that almost as soon as Nokia made this phone, they moved on to another, making this phone become obsolete quickly. If you end up with this phone you won't be disappointed.

    Despite this phone being 2 and a half years old. It still runs like a dream and does not feel out of date. The 4.3" screen is in my opinion the perfect size. Decent camera and a battery that can just about last a day. My only slight gripe is that dust has somehow found its way behind the front facing camera #on both 820s I've had# but really I couldn't have asked for a better phone over the last two years

    The Lumia 820 is a phone which may not be as fast as some of the newer phones but is still rich in functionality whether used for business or leisure. I have had mine now for two years and whilst a bigger, sharper screen might be attractive the 820 is the perfect size for the pocket. My only real gripe is battery life which is dire.

    I bought this phone a year and a half ago. The camera, despite being "average" in terms of numbers, is amazing. I love the Windows Phone UI, and I'm really looking forwards to being able to preview Windows 10 for Phones. The phone is since long past it's date, but I want people to know how much I've loved using this phone! I would highly recommend any Microsoft Windows Phone :)

    This is my first Nokia windows phone. I have had it a over a year and it is perfect. It is very durable. I have dropped it outside several times and it is still fine. I have never had to pull the battery as it has never frozen, there is very little lag from app to app, the wireless charging is fab. It syncs with my laptop and desktop with me needing to do anything. The camera is excellent,helped by Nokia pro camera app, it wirelessly prints to my HP printer and I can manage my scout group via our software and no longer need reams of paper. Battery life could be better, but I charge in the car or at work, so by no means a deal breaker

    What I like most about this is its ease of use and how easy it is to see everything. Previously my texts were intelligible but with the predictive words to help, I rarely make makes now and, if I do, it is so easy to correct them. I really like its size - it is easy to find it in my bag and to read what is on the screen.

    In my opinion the Nokia Lumia 820 is an amazing phone with all the feature you may need for work, school and personal life. I have had mine for over a year now and i have had no problem with the features, i could use the phone straight away. However every phone has its flaws. The Nokia 's flaws are that the battery life isn't as good as it should be, you lose more battery if you are just browsing your phone than when listening to music. other than that i love it. furthermore i think that the new upgrade you introduced benefited both the phone and the user. For example I love that when you get a new message, the phone would tell you and you would be able to answer hands free. this means that i can still text as i am cooking cleaning or doing my work. Great job!

    Lovely phone in a bright yellow wireless charging case with replaceable battery. Dual Core Krait S4 Pro with 1GB System RAM still as powerful today as many Quad Core A7 offerings. AMOLED Clearblack display looking good in an old school CRT/FL display kind of way (great for Radiant). Good iPhone class camera with flash/torch. Free offline GPS with HERE Apps. Lumia Denim with expandable memory let's me store loads more Apps and music and stuff on my 64GB SD card. A veritable Swiss Army knife of tech that's still small enough to fit in my waistcoat breast pocket too.

    I work in IT and never really got an affiniti to Microsoft but my Lumia changed all that. Brilliant device only held back by lack of app development due to small market share. Really is a pity as its been a problem free experience, through 2 major upgrades and not a glitch in sight. Can't say I have seen or owned a better device in over 20 years of owning mobile phones. Amazingly easy to operate and a great selection of addons and 'toys' that make sure I can what I want, when I want. I can say no more

    I upgraded from a Lumina 630 to a Lumina 820 and its awesome bigger bolder and better, the transfer was super painless and quick ,I worried about nothing there. After transferring I wanted to run through the phone to check it out graphics picture quality ... An hour later I was still playing candy crush . This is a great phone, a great Windows phone really easy to use and live with.
