Nokia Lumia 820

 

Nokia's mid-range phone doesn't quite make the impact of its Lumia brothers.

Speedy performance, Colourful

Oversaturated, low-res screen, Slightly unpredictable camera performance

Nokia Lumia 820 review

 

The Nokia Lumia 820 packs Windows 8 like its bigger brother, the giant Nokia Lumia 920, albeit with a smaller screen

MicroSD storage

Bulky ; Poor battery ; Low res screen

While the Nokia Lumia 920 brings the full WIndows 8 experience to smartphones, the cut-down processor, internal storage and inexplicable bulk make it an ugly proposition - it’s heavier than the original Nokia Windows smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 800. 4G...

Nokia Lumia 820

 

The Nokia Lumia 820 isn't the flagship phone of the Nokia Lumia range. It doesn't have all the headline-hitting features like a "floating" PureView camera sensor, or 4.5-inch screen with PureMotion HD+ technology, but that doesn't stop it coming with...

Removable battery, micro SD card, AMOLED screen, camera, WP8 features

Battery is a little weak, limited built-in storage

Nokia seemed to have been so focused on packing the Nokia Lumia 920 with as much tech as it could, that for us it forgot about what people might actually want from a phone.

Nokia has announced the Nokia Lumia 820, and we've already grabbed a quick hands-on with the device to see what it is like. The first thing to notice

Nokia Lumia 820 review

 

The baby brother steps up

Attractive design ; microSD support ; Great screen ; Powerful camera

Poor internal storage ; Limited battery life ; Windows apps lacking ; Impossible to remove the casing

This is a well constructed, colourful handset with some excellent technological features, Windows Phone is maturing nicely, and the 820 has got a really palatable price point to boot. It's been overshadowed by others in the range, but that doesn't mean...

Nokia Lumia 820 review

 

A capable little brother to the range-topping Lumia 920, but it's now been trumped by its successor, the Lumia 830

Nokia Lumia 820 vs Nokia Lumia 830 comparison

 

Now that it's a generation old, the Lumia 820 has been discontinued by Microsoft and Nokia, but if you really want to buy it you'll be able to pick it up from eBay for around £150. We'd recommend purchasing one of the newer budget smartphones if a £150...

Overall, the Nokia Lumia 830 is a huge improvement over its predecessor, with spec bumps in almost every area possible. It's speedier, can capture better photographs, offers a much better and bigger screen and has a significantly more attractive...

The Nokia Lumia 820 may be overshadowed by the 920 but this Windows Phone 8 smartphone shouldn't be overlooked. See Group test: What's the best smartphone

Nokia Lumia 820 review

 

Like the 920, we got used to the size and weight of the Lumia 820. However, compared to the slender competition these days we can't help but find it chunky and dated.

The Lumia 820 is a smaller and cheaper version of the 920 but doesn't pack the same punch, especially in key areas such as the screen and camera. We like the interchangeable covers and decent battery life. However, in the Windows Phone 8 market, HTC's...
