First Impressions: Nokia Lumia 820
| by Shayne Rana
It’s one thing to admire Nokia for its design prowess but quite another to appreciate the aesthetics that go behind the design itself. Nokia’s Lumia 820 was only recently launched for the Indian market, and being at the launch venue itself gave me the opportunity to get a quick hands-on of the new Windows Phone 8 toting smartphone.
Not a bad looker
Colour options in matt and glossy finishes with the NFC/Wireless Charging antenna
Angry Birds! Yay!
No hot-swap for the memory card
As you may well know by now, the Lumia 820 sports an 8MP autofocus shooter with a dual LED flash. We'll put the camera to test when it gets to our labs. It's no PureView, but with Carl Zeiss backing Nokia for so long, there's very little to complain about the camera section. The various lenses included with the device will help make your images a little more 'entertaining', for lack of a better term.
The bottom Line
With an MRP of Rs. 27,599, Nokia might just have a real winner on its hands with the 820. However, it will need to seriously boost app capabilities—which is the only major issue with the platform. As far as the hardware goes, the Lumia 820 is right up there with the best in this range and could make a few loyalists, who can't afford the 920, very happy. But we did expect the price to be a little more competitive. So their catch phrase – Switch to Lumia – is more of a question, at least for most of the Android and Apple users.
