Nokia Lumia 820 review
Back up against the wall, Nokia looks to the launch of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones as a make or break moment. It’s not essential for the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 to become bestsellers, but it’s absolutely vital that they convince users of Microsoft’s mobile platform's potential.
Android and iOS made short work of Windows Phone 7 and had it relegated to an also-ran. Now, one thing Nokia simply cannot afford is let history repeat itself. However, the Nokia Lumia 820 is, in a way, the luckier of the two global Nokia flagships. It will compete in a lower price bracket than the Lumia 920, safely out of the way of iconic devices like the Galaxy S III, the One X and the iPhone 5.
Yet, the Nokia Lumia 820 is not without its advantages - even over the almighty flagship 920.
