    Hmmm....

    I used only until GDR2 (aka amber)

    Looks like Nokia seems to ignore this device. No wonder they stopped manufacturing it.

    820 has lot of potential.

    Ya they want us to buy their flagship phones. But if at all flagship phones is my choice I will definitely buy only android like note 2.they may be laggy but they have good resale value.Windows phone have poor resale value atleast in India.

    I'll NEVER buy a flagship phone from Nokia (920, 925, 928, 929) because they have this odd theory that people who buy flagship never use SD cards. The 64GB 1020 would be the only option for me.

    Note 2 is not a flagship. It was but it is old phone, it was relesed about the same time as Lumia 820 and 920.
    Lumia 820 is old phone but it can make some good pictures, + about pictures is not only about the phone but also about the man pressing shutter button ;) . Only Android phone I would consider switching to is Nexus or Motorola (X-series) but Motorola is not available at our country.

    Anyway, I watched an awesome video of somebody comparing the cameras the 520, 620, 720, 820, and 920, and my GOD. The 820 was below the 620 at times.

    Might be but it'a fact ;). You can do many great shots with phones much worser than Lumia 820.
    Shot with my Nokia C6-01

    I'm not saying that L820's camera is great, not even close but it is not as bad as @prasath1234 wants to show. If he didn't like it than ok but can he pleas stop bashing Lumia 820 in every topic and use his Xperia C.

    Perhaps it's a matter of preference. I don't want to say the pictures you've shown are bad, but I just thought I was going to get a much better experience given Nokia's reputation. That last one you posted would have looked better with the 720, and that's just odd given that the 720 is supposedly meant to be more of a budget phone than the 820.

    The 720 came out after the 820 so there are some improvements in camera quality even if it doesn't have as many megapixels. The same thing with the 620.

    This picture posed on this site was shoot using my ex phone Nokia C6-01 on holidays in 2011, so picture will be 3 years old. Sure Lumia 720 would be better in low light situations because it has bigger sensor.
    Sure Lumia 820 isn't perfect phone, surely not after year and a half but it was solid midranger at the time and it's not that bad. Lumia 720 camera might be better but it has slower processor and less ram. In phones that are not highend is everything compromise. And it's up to specific person what they want. I was into buying Lumia 720 but than 820 recieved price drop and I went with it. I can easyer live with a bit worser camera than not to play games that require 1 GB RAM.

    If Samsung made Ativ S available here back when I got 820, I would have bought it over Lumias.

    It has SD-card , AMOLED HD screen , removable battery etc.

    Too bad , Neither Samsung nor HTC is interested to make WP8 because of poor consumer reception.Galaxy S4 or HTC One with WP8 (similar to how Ativ S resembled GS3) would have been so awesome.

    You are missing my point only indoor shoots nd night shots are horrible.day light shots are.too good even now.In that respect it can be compared to any Indian oem like karbonn, micromax,lava.

    Sounds like that update frustrated you a lot.

    Did you ditch Lumia 820 already or still on the verge of doing it ?

    I'm sure it's known that lumia 720 has better camera than 820, but 620 is undoubtly worser than 820. 820 overall has more detail. I'm on wp 8.1 if that changes anything. I'm not disappointed, I got just as much as I payed for.

    I think you should have done a proper background and reality check before going for your phone. There is complete mismatch between your requirements and your choice. You want battery life yet you chose the phone with the shortest battery. You want great pictures yet you chose the phone without preview technology. No wonder you are upset.

    Well his problem is that the black update ruined the camera....

    Problem is Nokia doesn't offer any phone with removable battery and SD-slot even if you put flagship price.

    Have you tried adjusting the white levels or trying to use another app ?

    What white levels I use only auto.in night I use night portrait.what is setting for indoor pictures.I think in day light this camera take sharp shots with lot of detail.but in indoors it's pathetic with green or yellowish tint.it was good preblack. I don't take low light shots I know I cannot get good shots in any midrange except lumia 720.
