    The 820 has scratch resistant glass and rather nicely can accept 64GB SD cards rather than the earlier reported 32��
    Really appreciate your reply. Especially alternate to gorilla glass being there made my day. Lumia 820 might be in range to buy, I hope they launch it with decent price tag in Pakistan.

    I'm pretty sure it has some off brand of scratch resistant glass. It's not as if they made it with regular glass. It may not be as quite as good as Gorilla Glass, but I'm sure it will resist scratching sufficiently.

    Well my mind is pretty much made up at this point. If the AT&T price off contract price stay's this low at 400 I am sold. Hopefully by Dec or Jan the price will be even lower has that is when I will be getting mine. For a few hundred more, I could get a 920 . but it is too big for me, just like the ativ. 8x pricing put it out of ball park for me off contract..

    The 8s would not seem much like an upgrade from my flash (no nfc, no ffc, 4gb hd, 512 ram) compared to 820 (nfc,ffc,8gb,1gig).

    Now if I only had enough to pre-order now, then, I would not have to wait.

    The 810/822 have gorilla glass. But yeah, the 820 has something similar.

    Since AT&T completely botched my pre-order for two L920s, and I had to completely cancel it , I've decided to take a fresh inventory of what I really need for what I do, and I think when I walk into the local corp. store on Friday, I may be walking out with two L820s (and, if they have them, wireless charging covers and plates).

    I ordered one of each.

    Just got the 820, I intentionally chose it over the 920 after playing with both at the store. I am coming from a 900 and very happy with my choice.

    Yeah that is what I was reffering to. If not inclusion of gorilla glass drops the price tag and still there is some scratch resistanat material I think it is good.

    I have been thinking about it because my wife has a ipod touch 4G and it got a big scratch on its screen from a pouch if diamentees on it which was also in purse. That scratch is invisible until you turn off the screen and tilt it to see that scratch but still since screen is everything with current devices I believe there should always be some scratch resistant material.

    If I could, I might consider getting the 820 over the 920. I like:
    - the expandable storage for some movies and I like to take a lot of pictures as well as videos so the extra storage is nice
    - exchangeable back cover for those times I feel like the phone needs a new look
    - and size. since I have the lumia 800 and like the ergonomics of it a lot, I think this size would be ideal

    The camera and better resolution on the 920 are something I would probably take over the 820
