Advantages: Latest Windows Phone 8 OS, Dual-core processor, Wireless Charging
Disadvantages: Lack of Pureview camera, Low Screen Resolution , no Screen Protection
Design and Looks: Nokia Lumia 820 is the poor cousin of Lumia 920 with most of the features scaled down. But the problem is with the pricing. The phone comes with a 4.3 inches AMOLED Screen featuring only 800 x 480 pixels of resolution with ~217 ppi pixel density . We would say that resolution is a bit low for the size of the screen. Also Gorilla Glass protection is not available.
Hardware and Software: Lumia 820 is rich in hardware and software. RAM is 1GB and runs on Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait Processor. OS is the latest Windows Phone 8, which is pretty good.Main disadvantage for the fledgling Windows Phone 8 OS is the lack of sufficient number of supporting Apps. Adreno 225 GPU supports graphics and the phone has Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chipset.
Camera, Music and Multimedia: Nokia always put it's best when coming to camera part. The primary camera is 8MP with 3264x2448 pixels, Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, dual-LED flash, Geo-tagging, touch focus. But Pureview technology is missing. The secondary camera is of VGA quality which could been a bit high.
Internal and External Storage: The phone comes with 8 GB internal storage and external storage via microSD upto 64 GB also is available.
Connectivity Options: The phone can work on Quad band 2G and 3G plus Penta band 4G networks. In addition to GPRS and EDGE, Nokia Lumia 820 can be connected to internet via 3G at Speed of up to HSDPA 42 Mbps and HSUPA 5.76 Mbps plus 4G via LTE Cat3 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL which makes browsing and downloading very fast. The internet speed is a boon for those who download lots of music and movies. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth v3.1 with A2DP and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. NFC also is available.
Battery and Talk Time: The phone comes with Standard Li-Ion 1650 mAh battery providing talk time upto Up to 14 hours (2G) / Up to 8 hours (3G) and standby time up to Up to 330 hours (2G) / Up to 330 hours (3G).
Our Verdict: Nokia Lumia 820 is rich with features but Nokia had to concentrate on pricing their phones.
