10. Nokia Lumia 822
Release Date: October 29 (rumored)
Carrier/Price: Verizon; $50 w/two-year contract
Verizon’s Windows Phone 8 device won't carry the premium spec sheet of the Lumia 920, but it offers enough features to stand out as one of the season’s best mid-level devices. Reports have the Lumia 822 laced with a 3.5-inch WVGA display sporting an unimpressive 899 x 480 resolution, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP camera, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and wireless charging. It's a steal when you consider it's $50 price tag.
