Review: Nokia Lumia 822 for Verizon Wireless

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  1  

The Nokia Lumia 822 does a masterful job at most tasks. Windows Phone, and Nokia's line of 8xx smartphones, have been consistent across the board in terms of features and performance. The 822 loses the best feature of its companion devices with its lack of customizable shells. The hardware is mostly good, but crummy buttons and the awkward shape are a bit of a let down.

The user interface, applications, and other services all work just as they should. I didn't have problems with anything. Aside from the lost shells, the camera's slightly inconsistent performance is about the only real mark against the Lumia 822. Network performance, call quality, and battery life offset these, though, and make the 822 a worthy choice if $50 is your budget for a new smartphone.
