By Doru Nica on December 1, 2012
In the sea of cute lovely phones Lumina 822 stands apart. The online pictures does not give you the right impression. You have to hold it in your hand to see why I like it.

It has a Nordic design simple, practical, and desirable.

It is wider and shorter than other Windows phones making it better for those like me with big hands. I have trouble typing on the HTC Windows 8X (wife's phone) but not so on Nokia.

I got the gray color and it looks excellent with the green tiles on white background. Looks and feels modern industrial design, not flashy or cute.

The touch is very responsive and the Nokia aps are very nice.

Windows 8 is excellent!

Yes, it does not have the 920 specs but I found 822 to be a very good combination of design and features and the only thing that I wish I had differently is the 920 main camera but that is minor thing for me.

Forgot to mention that this one has removable battery and up to 64GB memory expansion card. I'm now running a 32GB card. So that means that I'll not feel any pressure to change the phone anytime soon - important thing when your phone is a tool not just a phone or amusement.

This is a great device, which I found to really exceed the reviews and attention it has received. I was originally hoping to get the Nokia 920, but it was not offered by Verizon. After a careful review of the specs between these two phones, I came to find that they are virtually identical with 4 main differences.

822 has over the 920: Removable battery (very important for me as I use my phone for tracking long bike rides and hikes using GPS and need to replace the battery) and Expandable Memory using a micro SD card.

920 has over 822: Improved screen (not really that noticeable side by side), image stabilization in the camera optics.

This phone does everything I want. The NFC (Near Field Communications) is great for sharing photos and contacts with a friend. Its very fast and snappy, and the Microsoft Windows 8 software really impressed me. Everything (settings, photos, videos, etc) syncs to my private web storage on Skydrive, so when I take a photo, I can easily access it via the web site. The integrated Microsoft office is also really a nice feature.

This phone is a great combo of quality hardware and well designed software. I'm really pleased with my switch from Android to Windows Phone 8.

Nokia's software is incredible!!! Its add-ons like the Drive+ turn-by-turn navigation with offline maps, City Lens and Music makes it a must buy.
Not as good as the AWESOME STYLISH LUMIA 920, but still, a really really good phone.
NOKIA is the future!!! Thanks for the new LUMIAS!

I've had two Windows Mobile phones and one Windows Phone 7.5. I wanted a Windows Phone 8 but was looking for expandable memory and replaceable battery. I was happy to find the Lumia 822 had both plus 16Gb of onboard memory (8 more than the 820 and 821). My wife ditched her Evo 4G and loves her 822 also.

The bright screen is great in well lit areas or outside. The processor and browser combo score great on Sunspider (912!). The super sensitive touch screen works great with gloves or even a pen.

Of course, the Nokia exclusive apps are nice to have too. My daughter loves the Kids Corner. There are so many things I like about Windows Phone. And I think the Nokia 822 is the best all around phone on the market today. Oh yeah, I got it for free!

I was waiting for a long time to finally upgrade my old but trusty HTC Trophy. I was waiting for Verizon to release a flagship Nokia WP8 device, but after looking at the 822's specs, I decided to go with it instead. Boy am I happy I did. While I have only had the phone for a little over a week, I could not be happier. The build quality is great, the screen clear and bright, battery life has been excellent (replaceable battery a must for me), added SD memory fantastic, and the camera is great for my day to day uses at work (I use my camera a lot for work). The real clincher is the Nokia apps that come baked into the phone and/or are available in the windows phone store. I loved my HTC Trophy, but sorry HTC, Nokia has a whole other thing going on and you guys are getting left way behind when it comes to those little and big extras that make a consumer feel like they are getting taken care of. From design, build, to software, Nokia makes an awesome phone.

Also, and I know that it is a total luxury, the wireless charging is great now that I have it (big have to buy a separate charging back cover). At work I go to and from my desk regularly and I use my phone ALOT, for calling, emails, pictures, etc. Being able to simply place my phone on the pad when I sit down a few times a day is really nice. Plus I don't feel like I have another wire dangling on my desk. The charging pad is small and discreet sitting on my desk. Again, total luxury, but oh so nice.

Finally, the new OS is really great. It maintains the pluses of the WP7.5 design and functionality, but with some really nice new features. The new start screen with the adjustable tiles is really great. The added customization makes a big difference.
