If the new Nokia Lumia 822 Smartphone that runs on the Verizon 4G LTE network had a middle name it would be Lifestyle. That's my initial reaction after just a few short weeks experiencing this cool new Windows 8 based phone that Verizon Wireless sent me. My 17 year-old son, who will be acquiring this smart device as a reward for giving me his teenage perspective and helping me test it out to replace his 6 month-old HTC Trophy Smart Phone which ran on the inferior 3G network, couldn't agree more.

I'd be remiss, too, if I didn't mention how sleek and thin the body of the Nokia Lumia 822 is and that the device I received is white (it also comes in black or grey). As a woman, in my book that qualifies this as a stylish on-trend fashion accessory. It's so beautiful and has a unisex appeal that men will like it too. In fact, my son hasn't gotten a protective case yet because he loves the look of the phone just as it is. As his practical mom, I finally convinced him that it would be wise to look into getting a case to protect it from damage, so now he's planning on getting a clear see-through one to show off the product in all its glory.
Lest I sound superficial and only obsessed with what this new phone looks and feels like on the outside, let me tell you about which features impress me and my son most. I'm known for taking a lot of pictures with my smart devices, as the 3000 images currently living on both my primary smartphone and tablet indicate. So when this new device arrived naturally the thing I was most eager to check out first were the cameras, both the front- and rear-facing ones with dual LED flash.
Take a look at the images my son and I took here and see if you can guess which one was taken with the Nokia Lumia 822.

My son, who is a high school senior, plans to rely heavily on the Nokia Lumia 822 as he wraps up all his college applications and starts preparing for life after graduation from high school. He expects the calendar (especially the To Do function) and convenient access to email and messaging will all make managing his busy life and day-to-day activities that much easier.
