Nokia Lumia 822

 

Nokia announced ‘Twist’ its last phone 3 years ago in the month of September, 2009, for the largest carrier in the USA. The Lumia 822 Smartphone a Verizon exclusive marks the renewal of a partnership between Verizon and Nokia. It is available in black, white and gray, and does not have the unique removable shell you find in Lumia 810 and 820.

Design and Features in Nokia Lumia 822

The design of the Lumia 822 lacks any representation of style like Lumia 810. Instead of a flat, clean glass on the phone’s face, it has a plastic projection with Verizon logo displayed at the bottom. The rear cover with a plastic look contains Carl Zeiss branding. It has the logo of 4G LTE at the bottom. The device is a bit thick; the phone’s controls are on the right side that includes the power button, volume rocker, with a camera button. The placement of the ports and controls are a plus to its design. The camera button is positioned for landscape effect and the volume control is comfortable to operate. Also you will find an ambient light near the front facing camera. You have a removable 1,800mAh battery and a microSD expansion slot in Lumia 822’s favor.

Performance

This phone is powered by a high speed and efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, dual-core 1.5GHz CPU and an Adreno 225 GPU. The device is unlocked for global use along with support for Verizon’s domestic EV-DO and LTE networks. Along with quad-band support for GSM and WCDMA networks, the Lumia 822 also offers 802.11a/b/g/n (WiFi), GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and GLONASS. If you want to recharge wirelessly you may go for an optional backplate and Qi base station. The 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display and its 800 x 480 (WVGA) resolution provides plenty of space for content, color quality, and good viewing angles.
