Nokia Lumia 820
Advantages: Changeable covers, Music Variety, social network ease, speed of internet
Disadvantages: camera (when taking self photos), size is a little large, quite heavy
Its been almost two months since I've had the Nokia Lumia 820, and I must say, I have never been happier with a phone since the days of Nokia 3210, Snake and the changeable cover. Although the Lumia 820 doesn't have Snake (boo!) and the changeable cover is a little harder to take off, it makes up for it in many other ways.
First thing I noticed when first using this phone, is the really organised layout with the option to move around the tiles in location and size. This makes my life a lot easier, especially as I use my phone a lot for work and have to be able to find people and documents quickly. This along with the social aspect of Nokia Music and the People section, which links all the big social networking sites by people, so instead of scrolling through pages and pages of updates from those who you don't want to know about right then, you can click on their name and voila.. all is there!
Nokia Music allows the indecisive music lover to listen to track upon track by selecting a specific genre, latest chart hits or by the mix radio. Drains the internet usage, so is only really useful if you are on unlimited or by wifi.
I have to admit there are aspects of this phone I haven't used yet, mainly the sky drive options, but what I have used, I love. Although I have to admit the camera swings from really good to really pants, depending on who you are taking a photo of! For some reason, when you switch the camera to take a photo of yourself, the quality becomes terrible! But as mentioned, the camera on the whole is really good - quality brilliant, plenty of editing apps, most of which have been a positive addition to the phone.
So all in all, considering the main reason I got this phone was because its on Hollyoaks (haha!), it is actually a really impressive phone and one which has really enriched my busy, working life!
Summary: Love it! And will be hard pushed to go to any other brand now!
