A new trait in Lumia handsets like the 822 is room for a microSD card slot beneath the back cover. You can buy more memory to complement this handset's 16GB total.
I love how the 822's buttons rise from the surface, making them easy to press.
You can really see the characteristic Lumia 820-series thickness from this angle.
A different finish
The white version has a glossy coating on the back, whereas the black model is a little rougher to the touch.
A 4.3-inch AMOLED screen features Gorilla Glass 2 for strength.
The Lumia 822 shares an 8-megapixel camera with T-Mobile's Lumia 810.
The handset, though thick and heavy, comes in at a pretty decent deal: $99 with a new two-year contract.
