Nexus 4 is a really good phone to hold, it has a nice plastic body. The front is a continuous paint of black. It really looks simple and nice. The edges are kind of annoying. Nokia Lumia 820 on the other hand is made up of polycarbonate body and is available in loads of nice colours.

Nokia Lumia 820 has a better camera. There is no debate on this topic. It is a far better lens with Carl Zeiss optics and optimized performance form the 8MP camera. Even the Nexus 4 has a 8MP primary camera but it stands no chance against the quality of photos that come out from the Nokia Lumia 820. The camera software is also largely better on the 820 than the Nexus 4 and with the new Amber update, Nexus 4 would have to vanish. Camera- Nokia Lumia 820.


Like we said before, the Nokia Lumia 820 runs on the Windows Phone 8 OS and the Nexus 4 a lighter and better optimized Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It can be upgraded to Andorid v4.3 Jelly Bean.
