First, I always buy my phones unlocked and SIM-free, as I've found that works out cheaper for me. Never again am I going to be tied in to a contract on a dysfunctional phone I hate (thank you, Three, for teaching me that lesson). I have owned iPhones for the past four years and each replacement has cost about £100 more than my previous phone. As well as calls and texts, I rely on my smartphone for email access, taking photos, playing music, Facebook and Twitter. I cycle a lot and often use my phone for GPS tracking and navigation.

I am uncomfortable with using a £500 device for such a vulnerable task, so I took a look at cheaper Android phones. They were adequate in most respects except that their displays were invisible in daylight - a real deal-breaker. In my view, there are more similarities than differences between iOS and Android user interfaces, although Android is clearly more open to tweaks and geekiness!

Researching the best phone displays in bright sunlight turned up two recommendations: the Lumia 900 and the Lumia 820. After reading up more about the Windows Phone environment, I opted for the newer Lumia 820, reasoning that it will be supported for longer.

Out of the box, the Lumia's screens are beautiful. Who would have ever expected a Microsoft product to outdo Apple on style? I found the Lumia really easy to set up - somehow it sorted out connection to my email IMAP accounts far easier than my iPhone. The contacts app, 'People Hub' is a genuine innovation, drawing together email, phone, Twitter and Facebook contacts. I like the tiled home screen too - it offers the right balance of updates and links to apps.

Having owned a Lumia 820 for a while now I feel compelled to write this review, if not for anything else, at least to set the record straight about this phone as a lot of internet reviewers have maligned it; calling it bulky, too heavy with a limited app catalog.

I'm going to ignore the "limited app" thing because it's irrelevant compare with iOS/Android to take the drawbacks of WP in general and apply them to this phone specifically.

First off, this is a beautifully made phone with a great display.
I know the theoretical pixel-density isn't as high as other high end phones but I feel that's only on paper - unless you're looking at it from less than an inch away. In everyday usage, the AMOLED screen produces deep blacks, the viewing angles are very wide, and sunlight legibility is superb; summing up, a great display.

The clean design also blends well with WP's minimalist interface, and the phone itself is built like a tank with a solid, sturdy design - partly contributed to by the ridiculously tight back panel/shell.
And yes when you pick it up, you *will* notice the weight in your hands. For me it's a reassurance of the solid build and quality of the device. Frankly anyone who thinks a hundred and something grams is too much weight to carry around seriously has issues.

What I loved:

1.
Wireless charging out of the box.
You still need the Qi charger, but the default back panel supports wireless charging.

2.
Nokia-exclusive apps.

I was skeptical about getting the 820 - the 920 was way out of my budget and the 720 wasn't available on the network that I wanted. Looking on it online, I thought it looked rather blocky and ugly compared to it's siblings. I was hoping to try it out with the intention of possibly returning it. However I have fallen absolutely in love with it!

Admittedly I am not a smartphone expert, I've played around with IPhones, HTCs and Samsungs now and again but have felt pretty deflated by anything on the market. I simply wanted something pretty, practical and super easy to use - preferably with good parental controls for my toddler (something which my boyfriends iPhone severely lacks in). I also wanted something with a good camera & room for external storage (to double up as an MP3 player.

Camera - Rear facing Camera is great, front facing camera is pretty poor & grainy (I hear from other reviews that the 720 is better in that department). App store has plenty of camera filter apps although no Instagram currently available. There is also an app that makes your own animated GIFS (AWESOME) and Smart shoot which I have yet to try.

Lookswise - I've always been a little biased for Lumias because in my opinion they are the best looking smartphones out there (I have a thing for the colour yellow so a glossy, yellow phone is my idea of heaven). However I thought that the 820 looked a little underwhelming in it's internet photos compared to the other Lumia models. In the flesh, it looks pretty swish! Not as thick as I was expecting. Still saving up for that yellow colour though...(they're around £20-£25 each!) It's worth going to a phone shop and trying a tester if unsure.
