- Daily interest
The wait for the Nokia Lumia 820 is becoming intense as the date of its release comes closer; and the first test-model is out which gives a preview to what the actual phone is going to be like. But before this Nokia Lumia 820 review begins, one thing that should be made clear is that the phone is not to be compared with the high-tech giants like iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy Note etc. Although, the Nokia Lumia 820 has some pretty good features to boast about, it is still designed to be racked with the mid-range mobile phones of today. As such the Nokia Lumia 820 is expected to do wonders.
The Nokia Lumia 820 is a smaller phone with a light body. Its exact dimensions are 4.87 x 2.70 x 0.3 inches.
The body of Nokia Lumia 820 might feel lighter and therefore unimpressive if you have already handled 920, but for a mid-range phone it is ok. The phone comes with a choice in a big variety of colourful plastic back cases. It can be ordered in red, blue, yellow, violet etc. Because the back cover can be removed, you can also avail the option of wireless charging.
On the right side of Nokia Lumia 820, you are going to find ceramic volume control buttons, power button and a dedicated camera shutter button a bit down the line. The left side of the phone is completely clear; there is an audio jack on the top and micro usb slot on the bottom besides the speaker slot.
The screen is what initially differentiates the Nokia Lumia 820 from its flagship counterpart as it has a flat glass panel which was originally a bit curved on top in the other phones. The screen has a 4.3 inch Clear black OLED display with 800 X 480 pixel resolution. Again, for a mid-range phone, the resolution is not that bad. If you handle the phone, you are going to see some very sharp colours and lines.
Surprisingly, this little phone has both a rear facing 8 Megapixel camera with dual LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics that can take full HD pictures and videos and a front VGA camera for video chatting.
Although when the phone was unveiled last week, Nokia let out a lot of information about the device; the price, however is still unknown, so we have to keep on waiting for that.
