    Iv had two weeks with the 820. The screen also broke in my pocket (including the touch function) with ZERO bangs, drops etc. Been pulling my hair out with nokia care and getting nowhere, terrible customer service after 15 years loyalty. Iv always used nokias but this experience has put me off them for life. Only two years to go on my contract. Brilliant. This phone is a joke when it comes to durability. Shame because the performance otherwise is brilliant.

    THE IMPACT :
    My Phone a fall from 1 feet and the impact was taken by the upper right corner , beginning there was no problem. After about 2 hours i notice the screen had turned black around the upper right corner . The darkening gradually encroached the whole screen in matter of a few hours. At first the screen turned blue then started becoming fade . I could use the touch screen even after the fall so i guess the digitizer was normal .

    Today i took to the retailer (nokia care center) i had bought the phone from .The person there was really friendly and help me with concern as my phone was not even a month old . So this afternoon i dropped the phone screen replacement at 2 pm and he told me he ll deliver it today evening by 7 pm .Nokia is just charging me in around $80 (rs 4500) for the screen as well as labor. Would post back once i get the phone back.

    My brother placed his 820 on his bed, and it somehow fell on the carpet next to his bed. Guess what..It broke!! That's less than 50 cm's height (landing on a carpet)!! Having to pay for the repair kind of got me registered here. The Nokia shop said that it the replacing the screen would be around $135. Hopefully, they'll get it done by tomorrow. (Broke some 12 hours ago)..hmmm....

    my phone dropped less than 6 inches on to carpet, will in a protective cover, (i went to put it down, and it slipped out of my hand) and the screen cracked at the buttons on the bottom of the screen. Huge bloody crack, with shards of glass that cut my finger, buttons don't work so phone is useless. I've had the phone a week. It has to be faulty! I've tried the same fall with a glass from the kitchen cupboard and it didn't even mark the glass. Do not buy this phone!

    The edges are real delicate in the phone , a small impact onto the four corners can cause crack in the screen . Moreover my retailer told me not to keep the phone in the back pocket like the wallets , because he has got phone with screen damages coz of that .

    Same here, my wife had her nokia lumia 820 for just 3 days & cannot even remember dropping or knocking it. It has not even left the house. It has a cracked screen in the upper corner and will not operate at all. Looks like I'm up for a new mobile. Tried to down load a windows upgrade and it just stopped operating. Then we noticed the small crack. Grrrrr. Don't buy nokia 820's

    Dropped mine several times with no issues. It would be nice if people followed up rather than one post and never showing up again.

    I am very satisified with 820. When I put screen protector on it I was trying to remove air bubbles from it very wildly (I was filling like Bob Sapp in that moment). No single scratch or crack on the screen. I always place my 820 into my pocket of the pants and no scratch or crack (I also care my phone in the pocket of the pants when I am driving a bike). So for me, screen on Lumia 820 is very good. I am not that crazy to drop it on the floor. I am always watching what am I doing with the phone because it's not something that cost 5$ that I would not care about it.

    there could be some kind of a connection... The members, who had the phones with extreme bad build quality, seem to be the ones who have posted only once... could be a coincidence, of course... but who knows ;)

    GG and generic glasses are the same. Absolutely the same. But GG have a strong trademark, thats the only difference.

    I've seen a GG glass scratched and even broken (old Lumia 710 from my father, Lumia 720 from a forum's friend). And no scratched or broken glass on generic glasses, like my two lasts smartphones (Focus Flash and Lumia 820) and many others.

    In my experience GG is bull___. Same protection, but much more expensive.

    yep! speaking of it, at least GG1, it was just insanely soft. almost impossible to break since it flexes a lot, but extremely sensitive to scratches

    I had the an exactly same situation you described in your post last evening and planning to take it to nokia centre today. It started getting blue from the top right corner and started growing.

    So did you get your handset's screen replaced ?? is it fine now ??.... but 4.5 K is too much for a screen, isn't it ??? (you get a basic android phone in that price range.. :-)
