The good: Nokia's Lumia 822 delivers 4G LTE and a nice 8-megapixel camera, and adds 16GB of onboard storage with room for 64GB more.
The bad: A heavy build and rough, scratchy call quality detract from the Lumia 822's overall appeal.
The bottom line: The Nokia Lumia 822 offers a very good value for Verizon, but if you're into stylish design and spotless call quality, this isn't the phone for you.
Awesome device, but the little things get you

Summary: After having this device for a week, I'm at a crossroad. Windows Phone 8 is a great OS. Very ease to use and learn. The live titles are great, but more and more very day I start to miss the apps that I had on my last Android device. The speakers are placed on the bottom edge of the device, making for odd sound angles and most people I've call report not being able to hear me very well. Last of all, the LTE signal strength is lacking. I live a mile and a half from my closest tower, and cannot get a single bar of LTE unless I'm against a window facing the direction of the tower. My Droid RAZR I had always had at least 3 bars, if not full LTE at all times. Weird.
These are all things one and live with, and I do highly recommend the Nokia 822 to new-to-smartphone people, or those needing an escape from Android or the devil iOS, but today I used my mom's upgrade and ordered an RAZR HD for myself, which I know I will more happy with. I've been and Android user for almost 4 years now. Its hard to quit something you are so used to...
cool looks and good price & app range

Pros: good price range and specs

A whole new feel and idea, keep the updates coming.
by theDude_7 on December 19, 2012
Pros: The Nokia and Windows apps work well together. Some refining needed, its good updates appear almost daily for the stock apps.
The phone feels sturdy and has a beautiful screen.
Windows 8, brings out a new feel. After breaking the ice, its a blast.
Cons: Sometimes poor quality to whomever you're talking to . You really have to have your mouth on the microphone for the other end to understand you.
Battery last forever idle, but needs charged frequently when browsing or bright screen setting are used.
Summary: An awesome phone with an OS that thinks out of the box. I was given 14 days to try this phone, upon which I could trade for something else, and ...
Summary: An awesome phone with an OS that thinks out of the box. I was given 14 days to try this phone, upon which I could trade for something else, and I'll be keeping it indeed.
The Windows is just too addictive, navigating the phone, and exploring the apps. Honestly, I was hesitant with Nokia and their apps it came with, but they have fixed there reputation. Navigation and mapping software are key, this phone has thorough and integrated apps.
When finding what the phone can do, I've been coming across points where it feels like a feature or option is missing. This gives me the upset feeling that it was put on the market before it was ready. There have been many updates released.
Its not a worn a weathered strong OS like Android, and its not a happy go lucky iOS. Windows 8 was meant for a phone and it's a new feel in a phone. I had to break the ice and get myself to take it home, and now it is very comfortable.
Amazing all around phone for $49.99
by WBSobe74 on December 2, 2012
Pros: Live tiles
Nokia Applications (Nokia Drive, Nokia Transit, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music)
Cons: Plastic cover is slippery
Low Lighting pictures are poor from a distance, need to be close to flash
Xbox Music and video needs work
This is definitely no 920, but it is a great phone.
by vallandigham77 on December 2, 2012
Pros: Solid weight, rubbery plastic feel, fantastic screen (the colors really pop, regardless of what everyone else says, it looks great). Perfect size for a smartphone. Fits easily into the pocket.
I could go on and on about what I like.
Cons: The speakers sound really screechy when volume is turned all the way up. There are no accessories that match the gray color (wireless plate). Verizon employees still have no idea what this phone does (sigh). Xbox music is a nightmare (software).
Summary: I am extremely satisfied with this phone. It weighs enough to feel solid in my hand, it isn't too thick, even with a case. The screen looks and responds ...
Summary: I am extremely satisfied with this phone. It weighs enough to feel solid in my hand, it isn't too thick, even with a case. The screen looks and responds wonderfully. The phone is lightning fast, and the call quality is adequate (unlike the CNET reviewer says, I believe there is only so good call quality can be, and it's relative to the network area).
The speakers get a little screechy at higher volumes, but the Dolby technology while using it in the car is superb! Unfortunately, Microsoft shot itself in the foot with Xbox music. It is quite a pain to sync music to the phone, and I ended up cancelling my subscription to Xbox music because of the bad experience.
The OS has improved, and this phone exploits all of these improvements. The camera is awesome, and the lenses give it all the bells and whistles it could need.
Nokia's products are quite impressive, and given that this is my first one of their products, I will definitely continue purchasing them if they are this good!
