With all the noise surrounding Nokia’s other Windows 8 phone, it’s easy for to ignore the Nokia Lumia 820. And while it is, basically, a scaled-down version of the 920 (in both size and specs), that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a look. The 820 shares many of the same genetics as its big brother: 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 8MP/1080p Carl Zeiss equipped PureView camera, NFC and polycarbonate and ceramic build materials. It also comes with a 4.3-inch 800×480 OLED WVGA display, as well as 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal memory (to go along with 7GB of free cloud storage).
Unlike the 920, it’s missing integrated wireless charging — but the option is still available through a wireless charging shell, sold separately. At 160 grams and 4.87×2.7×0.39 inches, it’s a good deal sleeker than the 920. Thought of as tech à la carte — paying for what you want rather than a sexy flagship phone like the 920 — the 820 offers a solid option for less coin.
