We all remember when we used to change the covers of our Nokia handsets. How we enjoyed finding new colourful covers to put on our phone. The Nokia Lumia 820 benefits from have a premium unibody design, but can also use easy to fit exchangeable covers. It benefits from Windows Phone 8 being included which brings a personal experience to your smartphone.

By pointing the camera at a city street, City Lens overlays information about restaurants, shops, hotels and more on the surfaces of buildings, for the most intuitive way to explore surroundings. Nokia City Lens is the start of a new augmented reality experience that also enhances Nokia Maps, making it possible to move between map view and augmented reality view to help people check their surroundings.

Along with enhancements to Nokia Drive and Nokia Transport, the Nokia location suite of services represents the most comprehensive, integrated mapping experience of any smartphone.

Wireless charging is available using an exchangeable cover. With it you will never need to plug your handset in again for charging. It uses the Qi standard for wireless charging so it should be compatible with various products. Nokia has released details of a Fatboy charging pillow which provides a convenient and easy metod of charging.

    Just to thank you for getting my Nokia Lumia 920 out so quickly.

    It's an amazing phone and the W8 OS is so easy to use it reminds me of an iPhone but better.

    If I had to describe the Lumia 920 I would put it in the “Bentley category” of phones. It may be heavy and larger than a couple of other "premium phones" out there but the engineering, quality and performance are really superb.

    As typical from a Nokia phone, the audio is very loud and clear, the screen colours are so true it makes the Samsung look cartoonish. You can also see it outside in daylight.

    As for buyers worrying about lack of APPs. Out of the many I use on my Android there was only two that were missing from W8 - Sonos & Dropbox. There is a viewer for the latter but you can't add, for now.
    I am a phone nut – I bought the Motorola RAZRi from you last month and this year have got through Sammy S3, Note and One X.

    You were the very first company to offer the Lumia 920 on sale and to date I think still are the only supplier to have had stock and actually know when more is arriving. Most others don't - even Amazon.

    Excellent service and a very happy customer.
