Reviews for the Nokia Lumia 820

86% Review Nokia Lumia 820 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Colorful midrange. After Nokia has seemingly assumed a leading role in developing smartphones featuring Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8 operating system, the Finnish manufacturer suits the action to the word through the second model following the Lumia 920. A timeless design meets a decent camera and numerous proprietary apps in the Lumia 820. The manufacturer demands 499 Euros (~$667, RRP) for its new midrange device.

Although we were highly impressed with the Lumia 920's video footage, we weren't bowled over by its daylight photos, finding them well-exposed, but over-processed, which led to a loss of detail. The Lumia 820's pictures aren’t as processed so appear sharper, but the flipside is some slightly washed-out colours. It's by no means a bad camera, but certainly not up there with the best models we've seen such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC Windows Phone 8X.

Nokia Lumia 820 vs Nokia Lumia 830 comparison: What's the difference between the Lumia 820 and Lumia 830?
Source: PC Advisor English
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 design, in addition to the extra storage space and newer software. We'd still recommend checking out other mid-range smartphones before making your purchasing decision, though, as the Lumia 830 has some solid rivals from competing companies.
