Though the PN-820 isn't the flashiest or sexiest phone on the market, it offers a functional flip phone design.

There is a 2.5mm headset jack on top of the PN-820 and an external antenna that unfortunately adds some unwanted bulk to this phone.

Though the Verizon Wireless PN-820 is a bit tall and wide, it does have a slim profile.

The PN-820 easily slips into a bag or purse, but it might make for a tight fit in a pants pocket.

At 3.8x2x.7 inches and 3.9 ounces, the PN-820 is on the bigger side compared with today's lot of skinny cell phones, but it feels solid in the hand and comfortable to use as a phone.

The Verizon Wireless PN-820 comes equipped with a 1.3-megapixel camera and flash. The camera took decent pictures with rich color, but you'll need a steady hand to get a clear shot.

To store all the photos that you take, there's a miniSD card slot above the volume rocker on the left spine of the PN-820.
