I received the Nokia Lumia 820 is the post yesterday evening. I’ve only had a short time with it, but below are my first impressions.
It’s a fairly substantial feeling phone, both in terms of actual weight and feel in the hand. It’s very comfortable in the hand, approximately the same height as the iPhone 5S but wider. It’s has a 8mp Carl Zeiss camera, a removable back cover and battery and expandable storage with a micro SD card. In fact, at first glance I didn’t believe the back cover actually came off and had to watch a YouTube video revealing how the back cover was removed.
I took a few photos indoors in low light, and once again the Nokia optics perform rather admirably. The Lumia 820 is not in the same league as the 1020 but it did snap rather good photos despite the low lighting.
It’s style is similar to the Nokia Lumia 620, but larger with a better camera and 1gb ram. I don’t know what it is about the Lumia range but they feel tough and the only phone brand I would not protect with a case.
Next week I will post more thoughts of the Nokia Lumia 820.
