    Hey!!
    I'm also thinking of buying this phone.
    But from inside i'm little nervous about it.
    I don't want to regret after purchasing this phone.

    @ AlexanderPD

    do you consider Sony Xperia L? or any other Android phone.
    If i choose Windows phone then which lumia 820 or lumia 720?
    i don't really like android so i'm not the best person to ask what is better sorry :(
    but if you need to choose from 720 and 820 i can give an opinion :D
    the great advances of 820 are:
    - removable cover
    - removable battery
    - 1gb ram
    - 1.5ghz processor
    and the 720's advances are:
    - better battery
    - lightest
    - gorilla glass 2 (820 have a great glass but not gorilla glass)
    - more cheap
    - better night shots
    - little more slim

    you need to consider if you really need a greater processor on your phone, is it really needed? 720 still can play heavy games, can do all the thing an 820 do but with longer loading time. I compared the opening time of some application between 720 and 920, whatsapp get about 1 more second to load on 720. 1 second is not that much i think i can live with that :P
    i prefer the 720 over 820 because i don't need all that power (power that will become obsolete with next nokias phone and snapdragon s400 - s600) and i love the many advances of a 720, first of all camera and light weight :)

    Alexander, do you miss the AMOLED screen of the 820 ?

    I do agree that the 720 seems like the best model, but I just love AMOLED and deep blacks.

    I was about to get the Z10, thanks for the long approval period of our local carriers when applying for a plan.

    I will be getting mine tomorrow if there are stock on NBC's near work. I will post back here for my hands on experience together with low light shot.

    the white earphones are iphone5 earphones :D they work as any normal earphone but the central button works! So you can accept and close calls.. but its totally useless because microphone doesn't work. Volume up/down button doesn't work either :(
    audio is good but on high volume (over 20 is really loud) you can hear some little imperfection, still an amazing audio for a phone! in earphone audio is great, and you have the same audio option that lumia 920 as, so equalizer and earphone enhancer :D
    in 3 words: audio is great!

    @winhandt:
    i don't have any iphone5 or samsung s3 to test low light photos sorry :(

    @alpha10:
    sadly i never seen the 820's AMOLED screen :( my referral point are iphone4, galaxy s3, lumia 920, and except for resolution this display is really great :)

    I was hoping Nokia would offer both. There is something special about the Nokia Lumia design with a white background, especially if it was matte. Would provide a great contrast between the glossy black front and white back. Glossy is a fingerprint magnet and dust and scratches are more visible.
    Seems the 520 is matte white as well

    820 costs $300 here in Sweden. The price on 720 seems really off...

    How can 720 cost $350? Very strange...

    Nice!..I'll get one tomorrow, hoping that there are available stocks.

    Have you tried ProShot on it? Do you have the back plate...have you tested if wireless charging really works?..

    Matt white color tend to become yellowish over the time. The dirt attracted tends to stick to body permanently and can be noticed very easily on white color. While on glossy surface, you can easily wipe it and clean. That's the advantage. In my opinion, everything in Matt is great expect lighter colors especially white.

    BTW, great review! Good to hear that many issues have been fixed by Nokia update.

    I would like to know about loudspeaker volume and how much is it affected when placed on flat surface. Lumia 820 and 920 are average in this department and 620 is very loud. Compare it with one of those if you have used them or any other smartphone you have used.

    @OP forget to ask this earlier..Does it come with a Firmware that allows you to manage the Others storage? If yes, I'm all sold.

    @alllies: by default i didn't have the app to manage the "others" storage, after the update now i can :) from 700mb to 29mb of space occupied in a few seconds! a miracle :D
    i don't have the back plate and i can't test the wireless charging :(
    i didn't know proshot! i just downloaded the trial and tested it. Looks like i can fully use it, i can change focus by slider, regulate shutter time opening, regulate iso and all the other program's function. So, yeah it works :D

    @anujtwp: the phone's rear is not perfectly flat so when is placed on a flat surface you can hear perfectly :) not the same thing if placed on a *fluffy* bed, you can still hear but not perfectly like on a flat surface. Speaker is pretty loud but i still have not compared it with others! If i meet again my friend with lumia 920 i can compare the loudness between 720 and 920 :)

    I so want the 720 now, i was looking towards the 620 as a second device but i hope the 720's price wil be between 620 and 820, 350 euros is a bit too much i can buy a new 820 with that and but don't like it's design. I used a 920 from work and really liked it but had to change it for a Note 2.

    Blasted from my Galaxy Note 2 to your screen with the use of Tapatalk 2

    Hi,
    Got mine now, unlocked off contract. I wan't to have it on a data plan but our carriers are not promoting WP8 Lumias. As others were saying what is the point of having a smarthphone if you are not on a dataplan especialy WP, as live tiles will not update.

    The device feels so light for it's size. I want it to have more weight so I will get the backplate once available.

    Camera is too good for it's price. I'm at our office right now so I will play around with it's camera later, when I get home. I will post pictures taken on my device on weekend.

    Are this black loading screens normal when accessing device settings? It will make you feel like its staturring.

    I believe Nutella is from Italy, so it's no wonder he likes it. ;) Haven't eaten it for a long time but getting the urge to get some here!

    Anyways thanks a lot for the videos and the "review" pieces. There's still so little of user info about the phone.
