Jason, Nottingham Business or web user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
beautiful solid design, sharp, nippy and fluid OS functionality with better than expected battery life. Nokia Drive is a real quality feature to add to the new Windows phone 8 platform. Personalisation is second to none and display offers gorgeous colours and deep blacks. 25Gb skydrive storage syncs perfectly with office docs and xbox music is real value for money. I also filmed my friends wedding yesterday and the images captured are really sharp.
Bad points:
none really as i love this phone but if i was to be really picky I would say that most apps are available and where they are not you can usually find pretty good replacements but BBC Iplayer isnt available and neither is Barclays banking app. I can however do my internet banking using the ie10 perfectly well through the browser site so no real problem there.
It is a real shame more apps are not being developed just yet as Windows phone is a great phone with many plus points but im prepared to wait or sacrifice those apps for the benefits of using windows phone as it is a pleasure to use and personalises my life perfectly!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Love the windows interface. Size isn't as large as most phones so can manage with one hand. Ways setup and ease of use. Easy to read screen.
Bad points:
Apps not as available for Windows as Android and Apple phones. Reception not great but that may be the network and not the phone.

Nokia Lumia 820 Features
Windows Phone 8 operating system: Already the most customisable and interactive operating system available, Windows Phone 8 will take your Lumia to the next level. Now with even more freedom to customise your Live Tiles homescreen, you can also enjoy the benefits of Nokia City Lens, Xbox Live and Internet Explorer 10.

1.5GHz dual-core processor: As well as customisation possibilities and enticing features, the Lumia 820 is also blessed with plenty of power, and a 1.5GHZ dual-core processor will ensure anything you do will run quickly and efficiently. Whether it’s browsing the web or making the most of Nokia’s native apps, you can rest assured that there’ll be zero hang-ups.

4.3” AMOLED touchscreen: Almost everything is exciting on a Windows Phone device and, thanks to the Lumia 820’s excellent display, it looks great as well. With a 480 × 800 pixel resolution, images look crystal clear, web pages are sharp and detailed, and video content jumps off the screen, each enhancing your mobile experience to the full.

8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics: For photography enthusiasts the Lumia has everything you could ever wish for.
