    If u want to Enjoy wp8 purchase any phones other than lumia 620or 820.both are worst in battery especially 820 u will be better off with 525 rather than 820.

    i have to disagree with that! I am perfectly happy with my lumia 820, usually get a full day of use from it (45 minutes each way on my commute of solid browsing and music some video) then texting, calling, emailing and checking twitter throughout the day. On top of that it has a brilliant camera.

    Guyz i m a android user but

    i want to shift to windows(lumia 820)

    is it worth buying the same now?????????

    Any suggestions???????????????



    Even I wanted to buy a Lumia 820. But finally bought a Lumia 625 as budget was short. Trust me L820 is a v.good device for the money. In Indian Market the price is around 20k (Calcutta i'm talking about). But I would suggest u add an extra 3k and go for the Lumia 1320... Its a BIG screen device and is again bang for the buck...

    I'd recommend you to buy a lumia 920 or the 925. They are both very good and their build quality is very good. They definately deserve the money. The camera is awesome, the screen is perfect super-sensitive and the battery is very good.

    Exactly if u want performance nd battery life go for Lumia 9xxx series.they are only phones fir the value you pay.u can enjoy the best camera with this exception Lumia 720.with Lumia 820 u wont get any benefit because of low battery which wont last if u want to use it as smartphone.

    I just picked up a lumia 820 and a really like it so far. It feels really well made and solid and I like having a removable battery and micro sd card slot. Popped in my 128GB micro sd card and now I have my whole music collection with me! My plan to workaround the poor battery life everyone is talking about is to bring a spare battery with me and swap batteries when my battery gets low. I've been doing this with all of my phones I've had before.

    Actually my international 820 has better battery life than my dads AT&T 920. Battery capacity isn't always indicative of real life performance especially when one screen is amoled and the other is LCD.

    Exactly. All these people who complains that the battery is horrible, they probably uses white theme on their 820 or don't actually own it. The 820 is seriously underrated, I must say.

    And you can swap batteries on it plus, you can use it very heavily for 4.5 hrs, which is pretty good. You can always buy power bank or swap batteries unlike phones with battery embedded. Worst battery - NO

    The Lumia 800 series is a very well balanced device.

    However, I would advice against purchasing a Lumia 820 because it's battery life is notorious.

    On the other hand, I will highly recommend the Verizon Lumia 822 (It is factory unlocked out of the box)
    It has a bigger battery, 16gb of Storage, Gorilla Glass 2 Screen.

    Hope this helps.

    what???, the 820 has excellent battery life
    i had the 625 while my phone was with my friend(we exchanged with each other for a week out of curiosity) but it is just a larger 620 but a step down from a 720+ windows phone

    a difference of 350mah in a windows phone doesnt mean bad battery life, dont mislead

    lol u do realize the 822 is a cdma carrier dependent device and certain carrier devices dont get updates easily or at all
    as for battery life the 820 has excellent battery life and the 822 has only 150 mah extra of battery , how is it "better" than 820 then? 10 minutes of extra use?

    I would happily replace my 820 with another 820 if it got nicked but of course the question of buying one depends on the big factor of how much it would cost. I was considering a 920 but much too big for my hand and at the time not available in the UK with my preferred service provider anyway.

    Battery life is fine, well over a day under normal use, but I perhaps do take care not to go mad with usage if I am out and about away from a charging point: I have chargers downstairs, upstairs, in the car, in my work bag and in my leisure bag and a portable car jump starter with AUX power sockets useful for camping weekends. So only really need to take care when going out in the wilds for a day trek and make sure it is properly fully charged to start with (ie not just when the phone says it is fully charged) and take my old phone on PAYG as back up.

    Perhaps a better question is: Which is the best WM phone currently on the market would you recommend to a happy 820 owner if they needed to replace it for some reason?

    If another 820 isn't available for replacement, then a 1020. Still have an AMOLED screen, but you'd lose out on a microSD slot and replaceable battery. You'll have wireless charging capability with a shell. Not as bulky as a 920, as you said it's too big for your hand. One of the best cameras, if not the best, on the market.

    I would advise you to do your research again.
    Only the LTE band of the Lumia 822 is CDMA, but the 3G and 2G portion is GSM unlocked.

    My carrier only has GSM and I use my 822 with it.

    Also, Verizon released the Black update for 822 users.

    Lumia 822 is the cheapest, best windows phone! I got mine for just $85 and works on GSM. I am not using on cdma. But one friend of mine has it with Cdma and GSM at the same time! Incredible!!!! The only problem is than he can not receive calls from both system at the same time.

    it doesnt matter its not available in every region anyways plus the 810 didnt get black
    get ur research right as well ;)
    Nokia Lumia 810 and 822 to miss on the Lumia Black update - GSMArena.com news
    822 may have got it but carrier only devices are a toss of luck most of the times

    Quite frankly, I don't think the 822 will receive the 8.1 update thru Verizon.

    But signing up with the Developer's Preview should fix that. So it's a matter that really has no weight.

    And the fact that the 822 comes with double the storage.... 8gb vs 16gb easily makes it the superior variant.
    You can install many games and apps in this device.

    but u lose gsm LTE + wp8.1 allows us to install apps to SD :P
    im not saying its bad but for me it wouldnt make sense since i live in India where CDMA is not used as such,only for low end devices,LTE is coming soon(released but not yet mainstream) but the bands may not match all lumias

    I just bought an 820 for 65....(though it has a small default with power button) but if you can get one for under 100....I say go for it. I also have a 925 which is better, but I may sell that., keep the 820 until Nokia 1030 comes out!

    If you can, stretch your budget and get the 920. You should be able to find sweet deals on eBay. As far as the 820 is concerned, I own one and its a great phone. I've had it with me for almost a year now and it's been chugging along nicely without any trouble. It's a bit heavy but I'd say the weight only provides assurance of the robustness of the phone. I accidentally dropped it on my face as I was typing while lying on my bed, and the pain felt by my nose only reinforced my belief in its classic Nokia build quality. ;)
