    I like the 820 better. Plus I'm on t-mobile with a great plan.

    The screen is the only thing that bugs me.

    My TITAN uses VGA and I've never had a problem with it. I've seen my dad's ClearBlack on the Lumia 800 and it does look nice. So yeah, I reckon it will be good enough. Can't go into the details too much though as most of my experience is with the VGA HTC TITAN.

    It is the same screen as on the Lumia 900 which got rave reviews. I went to my local AT&T store yesterday and played with the 900 and the screen was bright and gorgeous. I will take HD if they offered it on the 820 but I don't think I will be missing anything. I think the only thing missing on the 820 is Gorilla Glass. Everything else is on point.

    Are you sure the Lumia 820 doesn't have Gorilla Glass? I know for a fact the Lumia 800 and 900 has Gorilla Glass so I find it weird if the 820 wouldn't have.

    Does not say on the specs. But it got to have at least Normal Gorilla Glass both 800 and 900 shipped with them.

    Hopefully Gorilla Glass 2..

    Was hoping the screen was 1280x720,but, it is only 800x400. The AMOLED with Clear Black still rocks..

    I am too worried about the screen not being good enough especially after using my s3. Buying the 820 might be my only Nokia option since Verizon seems to be getting it and not the 920. Wonder if the pixel difference will be noticeable whe, looking at pics and the start screen?

    I hope you are right about the Gorilla Glass but it is not advertised anywhere that it comes with Gorilla Glass. Even Corning's website updated the list of Nokia devices which have Gorilla to include the 920 but the 820 has not been added to the list. I've been begging on another thread for somebody from wpcentral to confirm but nobody has yet. I hope I'm wrong and that it is just an oversight on Nokia's part to adverise it but all indications so far are that it does not have Gorilla. Very disappointing since the 800 and even the 710 have Gorilla Glass. Regarding the display. It is a 4.3" 800x480 AMOLED Clearblack which is exactly what is on the 900 and as far as I'm concerned I am VERY happy with the display on the 900.

    Yeah I saw that and mentioned it on the other thread in the event forum but that is the only article I found. The questiin is who confirmed it? There is no documentation from neither Gorilla nor Nokia. You would think that Nokia would advertise it unless it was an oversight in marketing. I hope it does have Gorilla because I feel like that is the only thing missing from the 820. I wish I could find confirmation somewhere. I don't see how the 710 and 800 have Gorilla and not the 820 but somebody please verify this.

    As confirmed in another thread. We don't know that it won't be some off brand that's just as scratch resistant. Honestly, nothing a good screen protector won't fix. ;)

    I actually prefer AMOLED to IPS, one reason is the super deep blacks which look especially nice on the WP UI, another is the energy efficiency (black pixels are "off" using little or no energy)

    But the lack of HD resolution is a serious let down.

    One positive I guess is that neither the 920 or the 820 is tempting me to buy anything before my upgrade becomes available.

    If Nokia makes a premium WP8 phone with HD resolution that's smaller and lighter than my Lumia 900, that will be my next phone.
