Let’s compare the Nokia Lumia 820 vs Nokia Lumia 920. They have similar features, but there are a few things that set them apart. Gallery and comparison video after the jump.
The Nokia Lumia 820 is the smaller device. It’s thinner, narrower, and shorter than the Nokia Lumia 920. The Lumia 820 is also lighter at 160 grams compared to 185 grams on the Lumia 920.
The Lumia 820 has a 4.3-inch display with 480×800 pixels resolution versus 4.5 inches with 768 x 1280 pixels resolution on the Lumia 920. Both support super sensitive touch so you can use the phones even with gloves on.
Internally, they are almost the same with dual-core 1.5GHz cpu and 1GB RAM. I don’t see any performance difference with apps.
The Nokia Lumia 820 has an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia Lumia 920 has an 8.7 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Pureview technology. The Lumia 920 performs much better in low light and has more stable videos thanks to the optical image stabilizer. The front camera on the Lumia 820 is only 0.3 megapixels while the Lumia 920 has 1.2 megapixels.
For storage, the Nokia Lumia 820 only has 8GB internally while the Lumia 920 has a whopping 32GB stoage. The Nokia Lumia 820 has an advantage here though, since it has a microSD slot for expandable memory up to 64GB. The battery is also removable on the Lumia 820, but not on the Lumia 920.
The Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 both have NFC, 4G LTE, and wireless charging support, but you’ll need the wireless charging case for the 820. It’s about an extra $25.
