Review: Nokia Lumia 820 for AT&T
The Nokia Lumia 820 is a solid mid-range device. At $50, it's an incredible value that offers tons of high-end features in a customizable and compact piece of hardware. Some of its strengths include excellent signal and data performance on AT&T's network, a quick and lively user interface, and a solid multimedia experience.
The two biggest faults of the 820 are the middling call quality thanks to poor speaker volume, and the battery life. Of these, the battery life is far more worrisome. It barely scrapes through an entire day, and that might not be enough for some users.
Otherwise, there's little else to dislike about this welterweight wonder.
