Analyzing The Nokia Lumia 820

It's all a matter of personality. The bright red cover, for example, is in our opinion a questionable choice of color instead of the yellow mat. Once the bracket is attached, the Lumia 820 looks more like a camera than any monohull phone several components that we used before.

The Nokia Lumia 820 is neither small nor lightweight, weighing 160g. It is heavier than some flagship devices like the Samsung Galaxy S3 (133g), HTC One X (130g) and iPhone 5 (112G).

Regarding the buttons, the Lumia 820 is traditional. The microUSB port is down, the 3.5mm headphone jack at the top, the power button and the volume rocker on the right, and the 8-megapixel camera on the back.

The first, a Start menu, consists of Live Tiles that can be resized and are filled with applications of your choice. The second screen is a list of your applications.

The most problematic is the lack of notification bar, which means that we often miss tweets and emails. It will not be a problem for users who do not have to be "connected" at all hours of the day.

If you choose a Windows Phone, Nokia will give you plenty of reasons to opt for one of its devices.Nokia Lumia 820 with Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music and Nokia as some new additions City Lens and Nokia Drive.

It was therefore no surprise the same weaknesses, namely granular details in low light. Speed shooting with the lens is good and fast dynamic mode is quite decent. The focus is reliable. It is activated using the camera button. We are not hardcore fans of this process.
