I know how much more attractive that would make it, but... Well, think of it this way - the HD screen probably eats up the battery a lot faster. With the WVGA screen and an 1800 mAh battery, I bet this phone could get juice all day and then some. ;)

If it was a TV I would be concerned but it's a phone. 800X480 on RGB stripe super AMOLED clearblack is beautiful. Actually and HD screen is the least important spec for me. If you go to AT&T and look at the Lumia 900 then you will see how beautiful the 800X480 screen is. Look at . The 810 will get an enhanced screen of the Lumia 900.

The only reason the screen on the 810 is seen as a negative now is because it's old news - despite Nokia's proven excellent track record on their screens with that pixel density and resolution, there are now "HD" screens so instantly everything else sucks.
Once the new Windows Phones hit up my local Microsoft Store, I'm going to have to do a side by side comparison in person and see the true difference. I'm the kind of guy who can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on a 42" screen so I wonder if it'll be the same here.
Off topic: My only worry about this phone is the 8 GB internal storage for apps (which we all know will be slightly less than an actual 8 GB). SD card can't hold apps (though it can hold everything else, which is nice) and I fear apps are going to shoot up in storage space (i.e. games)

I was initiallly disapointed that T-Mo (USA) wouldn't be getting the Lumia 920 or ATIV S... However, the more I look at the specs and consider those other two phones, the more I know I'll be EXTREMELY happy with the 810.
Negatives (ordered by importance to me):
- 8GB (would have preferred a 16GB version)
- (A Distant second) Screen (would have preferred higher res and larger, but I currently have an HD7 4.3, 800x480, the res and size have been great).
I'm chomping at the bit for Nov 14th to arrive so I can pick one up.
