Large screen

The 820 has a 4.3-inch display that can get both very bright, and sensitive enough to operate with your fingernail or gloved hand.

Camera action

This 8-megapixel lens offers some strong outdoor shots and HD video capture. A front-facing camera is ideal for video chats.

A little blocky

See the sharper edges on this very square device? I'm not a huge fan of the design, and even less enthused about this black case's slippery finish. However, it is acceptable; I've seen much worse.

Colorful cases

You wouldn't know it looking at this black body, but if you position your fingernails just right, you can peel off the back panel and swap in brighter colors -- red, white, yellow, or cyan.
