A high-end Windows Phone steal, with flaws

It may only cost $50 for AT&T after a new, two-year service agreement, but the Nokia Lumia 820 isn't just a pretty price tag.

The third in a series of phones that also includes the 810 and 822, Nokia's Lumia 820 is the less expensive and slightly less expansive alternative to AT&T's more advanced Lumia 920.

This variation is also heavier than its cohort, has a smaller battery capacity, and exhibits sometimes slower data speeds than expected.
