  • One of the most stable, solid phone I ever used

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    As a enthusiast mobile phone tester, this is a very stable fast response mobile, has several features from high-end phones for a fraction of the price (in it's release date). Missing only some apps but with a very good camera, hardware and accesories.

  • Great switch from Android, got me hooked on the Windows phone OS

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This was my first Windows phone (I owned Symbian and Android phones, I didn't go for Iphone because I think they're overhyped and too expensive while the system is too "closed off" to other OS phones). I really like Windows OS on Lumia phones! Who cares if, for now, there isn't as many apps available? There are viable alternatives, anyway. And what matters most to me is that the apps don't use too much memory so the phone doesn't lag or hang. It is so fluid. Browsing is fast, too. I like the very customizable live tiles; the seamless integration with my email and social media accounts (i.e., Facebook and Twitter); the accurate maps and navigation system that do not need internet connection (for this reason alone, a friend of mine bought a Lumia phone too - out of envy - because she drives but has a poor sense of direction); the availability of Office and Notes; the handy calendar (which makes me able to see my FB friends' bdays even if they hide it); the lock and glance screens; and the list goes on and on. All these make me really love my 820. (I am a semi-techie heavy user who insists on looking at/testing every feature on the phone.) The phone is sturdy in my hand and the features are great especially the rear camera that make for really good quality photos even in low light. I am also glad that the 820 could be updated to higher OS, as this only improved the phone even more! So far, it is very rare that I experienced sudden reboot. I just hope it had a better battery, though. Wishlist (most of which I know can be addressed by improved OS): 1. Include a toggle/shortcut for data connection in the notification bar, so that we don't have to go to settings all the time. 2. Higher resolution for front camera 3. Make it easier to make playlists 4. Allow "space row" among live tiles so that we can cluster tiles as we want 5. More size options for tiles 6. Make it easier to delete temporary files (without having to reformat the phone) 7. Improve Office 8. Improve image stabilization in camera 9. Allow selection of messages in a particular message thread for multiple deletion (so we don't have to either delete messages one at a time or delete the whole thread altogether). 10. More accent colors 11. Do not limit use of tones for messages or notification tones (e.g., SMS alert tones cannot be used for ringtones, and vice versa). If possible, allow the use of all music Overall, I love my 820. My husband has offered to buy me an upgrade to a bigger Android phone with (seemingly) better hardware, and I said thanks but I am very satisfied with my phone and the OS. When I upgrade, though, I think I'll go for the 830, so I hope some of the items on my wishlist will be answered. I'll just have to save up a little more though.

  • Would buy Nokia, Lumia and Windows again

    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This was my first smart phone and it was recommended in a CNet online Q&A. It was the perfect recommendation for me and super easy to learn and personalize. I watch my husband struggle with his Samsung and I try to help but it's so clumzy to work with compared to my Lumia. Unfortunately I bought a Samsung tablet and have the same issues - wish I'd bought Windows there, too!

    This phone is amazing! The only problem with it is the battery life... It dies very fast if you use it a lot. Overall this is a great phone, I would recommend it to anyone.

  • Best Mid-range phone with AMOLED display

    Hi, I think you should create application like (Fast )data Transfer(including iPhone, android with some transfer protocol) . And it should use technology like Bluetooth, WiFi, WiFi-direct communication to transfer files and folder to next device fastly. Hardware side you should provide Temperature sensor, all health sensor, Agriculture sensor( Creating app for farmer).

  • It's a good mid-range phone

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I have many 'but' to tell about this phone: the display have excellent colors, blacks, resolution but... could have gorila glass; the internal memory is only 8GB but you can use an sd card to install apps since WP8.1 and it is AMAZING! The weak point is certainly the poor battery. In general it's a excellent mid-range phone.

    This device is great, absolutely amazing. The only thing I don't like is it's battery, which is horrible. Even the Lumia 620 was better in this aspect. I have to charge it up to 4 times a day. But overall, it's indeed a great device.

  • Stability and quality - people, it's NOKIA

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Not a perfect phone and most certainly not the best NOKIA ever made, but still a great phone. Battery life is good but not great. It fits in the hand well, doesnt slip or poke with sharp edges. Sound is good, vibrates only once when the phone rings which is annoying if you turn the volume down. It is capable of dealing with every app, as I never experienced any lag or game crashes. I dropped it a dozen times and I only have one small crack on the back mask, but I expected nothing less. Touch screen is very good, no smudges and is equally sensitive in all temperatures and visible in every light except really strong sun. As far as Windows Phone goes, I regularly get all updates, each works without problem and brings something new and better. The system is stable and doesnt crash - not once in this year since I bought it. There are a lot of apps in the store to choose from, and even though it still trails competition in the number department, quality of apps is better and it makes the overall experience and use mor reliable.

    My Nokia 820 has responded very well my needs, but I think what is missing for Nokia 820 to be a great device is a better battery. I use of device is very simple, I don´t, so I can not opine about processing.

    Bought phone in middle of last year. Like OS very much and is super easy to use. There is vast selection of apps, although selection only improved this year. Using developer preview build which sometimes causing some bugs but overall it is almost perfect. Phone fares very good and it can handle my heavy use (couple of drops to hard surface). However, there are some peculiar things, like build quality, although very robust, assembly is not so good and could be done with greater precision. Battery hardly last throughout whole day of use. Also camera needs improvements for low light photography. It was improved with Cyan update, however there are still grained and fuzzy pictures if you are not completely still. Hope Lumia 830, which will be my next will have same robustness with better assembly quality and improved battery life.
