In the UK the 820 comes with a cover that supports wireless charging. Despite the high price of the phone however, Nokia in all its wisdom has decided not to include a wireless charging mat in the box -- only a standard microUSB charger. If Nokia ends up going the way of Palm it'll be because of decisions like this. The 820 runs on Microsoft's Windows Phone 8, the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system. It's got quite a different look and feel to iOS and Android as it's based around a scrolling homescreen that's decked out with colourful tiles. I really like the cool 3D effects and transitions scattered through the OS, as they make it feel very intuitive and contemporary. It might be time for Microsoft to speed up some of these however, as they run at the same pace as on older Windows Phone devices. It means phones with the software are marginally slower than other devices when opening apps, as the transitions cause a slight delay.
One of the best features of Windows Phone is the People Hub, This pulls together all your contacts from apple iphone 5s/se cases clearance sale - silicone case Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email address book and phone in one place, As a result, when you look at a contact you don’t just get to view email addresses and telephone numbers, you can also see their various posts on different social networks under the 'What's New' tab, For a more in-depth look at Windows Phone 8's features check out our HTC 8X review, The 820 comes with some additional Nokia apps that you won't find on non-Nokia Windows Phone devices, Most apps added by manufacturers to smart phones are pretty irritating or useless, but that's not the case here..
Pre-installed apps include Nokia Drive, which offers turn-by-turn, voice-guided navigation -- something not included in the standard Windows Phone maps app (which is actually powered by Nokia's maps). The Nokia Music app is also ace. It lets you stream playlists that are automatically generated and cover a very broad spectrum of music genres from heavy metal and indie to dub and classical. These playlists are all completely free, aren’t interrupted by annoying adverts, and you can even sync up to 14.5 hours of music to listen to offline.
There's also City Lens, which is an augmented reality app that uses GPS and the phone's compass to superimpose stuff like train stations, restaurants and hotels onto apple iphone 5s/se cases clearance sale - silicone case a live feed from the camera to show you what's nearby, Sometimes it works well, but other times it throws up some bizarre results, The first great smartphone of 2015, Beautiful and bold..with complications, The new no-compromise MacBook, A stellar on-ear headphone, Crave-worthy curves for a premium price, The Good Nokia's additional apps and services are worth having; Design is refreshingly different to most smart phones; Windows Phone 8 is slick; Good camera; Expandable memory..
The Bad Thick and heavy; Screen isn't very impressive; Below par battery life; Windows Phone 8 is lacking in app support; No wireless charging mat included; Expensive. The Bottom Line The Lumia 820 is a solid Windows Phone 8 mobile, but it won't set the world on fire. Its swappable covers, good camera and slick and Windows Phone 8 software are great, but it's rather thick and heavy, the screen is pretty average and its battery life isn’t wonderful either. It's also expensive compared to competing Android phones.
