This radio has upped the bar on ham radio technology!
Compare to previous Baofeng products (UV-5R and the UV-B Series) this radio comes with a much louder speaker (1 watt!).
More solid design with larger buttons, and a better antenna.
This radio can be programmed with or without a PC to also work on private repeater systems.

As the other gentleman said, the radio fits better in your hand as is larger than the UV-5R and UV-B5/6 series. This radio is solid & well built - it's made for work and everyday use.
The squelch actually works on this model. Both of my radios are set to 5. The UV-82 doesn't pick up as much key check and static from guys hitting the repeaters, not so with the UV-5R.
The manual is 'now more better', but the Chinese would do well to hire an American or Brit to proofread the copy first. For first time radio operators, it actually explains what the radio functions in the menu do (ex. actual explains the BCL utility). This bit of detail was lacking in the UV-5R product line (though more support sites exist for that model.)
Also, this UV-82 series has two PTT buttons, so you can set it up to monitor two repeaters on A/B, selectively scan those stations and unlike the UV-5R, don't have to hit the A/B button switch between frequencies.
Moving on, there are some issues I have with the UV-82 radio;
As stated, the reception is very good, but it's super sensitive on some FM frequencies (especially on FM Radio RX, I live right down the mountain from a FM station and it picks up a frequency click, while the UV-5R does not). One reviewer rightly tagged it for having some harmonics issues.
1) You lose the VFO/M button. With this system, you have to hold the menu button and turn the unit on and off to switch between frequency and memory. While a bit annoying, it wasn't hard to get used to.
2) Unlike the UV-5R series, the UV-82 doesn't sit well on a flat surface. The radio's own base could be better.
3) The charging base is a bit lacking, you almost have to angle the radio right to fit it in the slot so that it starts to charge.
Han'sHam site has a fix here for the base: [...]
Product experts abound on the internet: but the UV-82 has a fairly small knowledge base compared to the tried and true UV-5R and it's steady cousin the B5. Before you buy, contact Martyn at Radio Mart to see if this is a good fit for you, he knows more about these radios than most and you can call him on the phone. He also sponsors the UV-82 Yahoo support group.
All and all - I wouldn't give up the UV-5R yet if you plan on switching it out for a UV-82, it's done right by me and it suits most of my needs. I do like this UV-82 though and most likely will get another antennae for it soon.
However: all and all, it's a performer, significantly more noticeable power than the previous series, very good sound and excellent reception.
Overall, a well built, tough radio that comes with a charger, earpiece, belt clip, battery and antenna. For the price, they can’t be beat!
Not that most of you will take apart your new UV-82 radio and compare it to the various models of the UV-5R that are available, but this radio has the same circuit board and the same standard battery capacity, although Baofeng has now come up with another little "trick" to make you think the radio is better there, too. They simply relabel the battery with anything from 1800mAh, or 2000mAh, or even 3000mAh with a label - all with the same number and same type of battery cells inside the pack.
So those of you that fall into the trap of purchasing this week's "new and improved" UV-82L model (vs. last week's "older" UV-82 model) have the exact same radio, with the exact same battery, but your battery label is different. Again, let me make sure you understand, the only difference between the UV-82 and and UV-82L is the battery label, not the battery itself. Feel better about purchasing the "new and improved" UV-82L model yet?
Again, many "questionable" sellers will try just about anything to convince you to purchase a newer or improved model of anything, even when it really isn't what they claim it to be. The UV-82 series of radios DOES NOT replace the UV-5R series, nor does it replace the UV-B5/B6 series of radios, Baofeng is simply adding additional models to the product line up, not replacing them.
One dealer (that was removed from Amazon) even went so far as to claim they were the sole U.S. distributor for Baofeng, making all sorts of outrageous claims about how many radios they sold on any given day, how all other U.S. dealers purchased Baofeng radios through them, or even how Baofeng makes radios exclusively for them.
Here's a secret I'm sure the "distributor in KY" doesn't want known. If you (and your friends) combine your resources together, you too can purchase directly through Baofeng in China. In fact, if you can order enough radios at once, you can pick out the design case and even spec in what frequencies or bands you need to be covered. Most of the claims of "new and improved" features sets are all marketing nonsense, but many of these "questionable" dealers (or distributors) are all desperate to establish a reason why their radio is worth more of your money that 5 to 25 other dealers selling the exact same radio on the exact same website (Amazon, eBay, or whatever).
That's precisely why the UV-82 was welcomed by them for a few weeks with open arms. It looks different enough from a UV-5R that they can actually sell it as a different radio. Fair enough, but now many of their same competitors are again selling the same UV-82 radio, so what to do? Get the factory in China to ship a "new" model, call it a UV-82L and claim it has a bigger battery vs. the original UV-82 series. See a pattern here?
No doubt one (or more) of the larger dealers will eventually ask Baofeng to start shipping them in colors, or try to figure out a way to re-engineer a truly larger battery onto it (not available at present), or even slap a different frequency band into the radio (it's basically the same as the UV-5R inside and that's been done before), and presto, we'll have one or two dealers happy for a few months while they claim a "newer or improved" UV-82 XYZ model that "replaces" the old UV-82 and UV-82L units, and of course, their new and improved model will be exclusive to them.
I've even see one "questionable" dealer claim that the UV-82 can receive two VHF frequencies and the UV-5R can't, which is absolutely false, they both can by using a scanning trick called dual band receive. The UV-B5/B6 series still has a much better receiver than either the UV-5R or the UV-82 units, so if that's important to you (and if you live in or near an intermod alley it should be), take a hard look at the UV-B5/B6 units.
Frequency and performance wise, the UV-82 series is simply a repackaged UV-5R radio that costs $15 to $20 bucks more than a UV-5R. Buy the UV-82 radio if you like the design, just don't be led on to believe that this radio's performance destroys the UV-5R (sadly it doesn't, but certainly the better antenna helps, it's just not worth $20 more for it in my opinion). Forget about many of the UV-5R power options available as well, as they simply aren't available for the UV-82 series (and may never be due to the case design). Maybe that won't be a problem if a dealer asks Baofeng to re-label the standard battery with a label that claims 10,000mAh or a hidden solar re-charge capability (chuckle).
