My TITAN uses VGA and I've never had a problem with it. I've seen my dad's ClearBlack on the Lumia 800 and it does look nice. So yeah, I reckon it will be good enough. Can't go into the details too much though as most of my experience is with the VGA HTC TITAN.Windows Phone Central Moderator "Fortune cookie said: 'Outlook not so good'.

It is the same screen as on the Lumia 900 which got rave reviews. I went to my local AT&T store yesterday and played with the 900 and the screen was bright and gorgeous. I will take HD if they offered it on the 820 but I don't think I will be missing anything. I think the only thing missing on the 820 is Gorilla Glass. Everything else is on point.

Does not say on the specs. But it got to have at least Normal Gorilla Glass both 800 and 900 shipped with them.
Hopefully Gorilla Glass 2..
Was hoping the screen was 1280x720,but, it is only 800x400. The AMOLED with Clear Black still rocks..Nokia Lumia 521 - TMobile Prepaid 2.5gb with Hotspot

I am too worried about the screen not being good enough especially after using my s3. Buying the 820 might be my only Nokia option since Verizon seems to be getting it and not the 920. Wonder if the pixel difference will be noticeable whe, looking at pics and the start screen?

I actually prefer AMOLED to IPS, one reason is the super deep blacks which look especially nice on the WP UI, another is the energy efficiency (black pixels are "off" using little or no energy)
But the lack of HD resolution is a serious let down.
One positive I guess is that neither the 920 or the 820 is tempting me to buy anything before my upgrade becomes available.
If Nokia makes a premium WP8 phone with HD resolution that's smaller and lighter than my Lumia 900, that will be my next phone.
