Summary: It’s rare that a Windows Phone blows us away, but the Nokia Lumia 620’s done it. Put simply, this is the best budget smartphone we’ve ever tested. All of Windows Phone 8’s problems melt away in the face of such a low pricetag. Between the superb build quality and Nokia’s rock solid app suite, this is simply the best option if you want apps without breaking the bank - by a very, very long way.
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 620 is a competitively-priced entry-level smartphone and deserves a good look. It’s not necessarily the right choice for those signing a multi-year contract, since many better devices are discounted to $0 on three-year terms at the moment, but combined with an inexpensive pre- or post-paid plan, there aren’t many choices better than this.
Cons: The Lumia 620, while great value, is only such when purchasing outright; far better phones can be had for $0, though you may have to sign a three-year contract (as opposed to a two-year) for the privilege. It may also be worth waiting to see if a Canadian carrier will release the newly-announced Lumia 720, which may carry a bit more bang for the buck. If there is one serious design flaw in the Lumia 620, it’s that in removing and replacing the back cover, a non-trivia...
Nokia Lumia 620 review: welcome a new baby in the family
8 March 2014
Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 620 is Nokia’s third foray into Windows Phone 8 territory, but while the previous two – the Nokia Lumia 820 and the Nokia Lumia 920 - were both fairly high-end affairs, this is a decidedly budget handset. Really its closest competitor is the HTC Windows Phone 8S , since the two phones have pretty similar specs. They both have a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video and a 480 x 800 resolution display.
Conclusion: The Nokia Lumia 620 - it might appear cheap and cheerful at first sight, but it actually appears to be a device which can punch well above its weight. Elements like expandable storage up to 64GB, NFC and Nokia’s array of exclusive apps make for a compelling package in a fun design which we think can cater to a range of users. What really sells it to us is for the price (between £149.99 and £189.99 on PAYG), you’ll be hard pressed to find such a well-rounded alternative.
Pros: Clean, distinctive design, NFC, Affordable
Cons: Weak camera, No LTE, Windows Phone 8 lacks diversity
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 620 is a mid-range smart phone that will enchant immediately for his modern and colorful design. It is not surprising that some for its performance, mainly due to an RAM not up to the operating system, which could possibly express themselves better. The photographic industry is not bad, and has some good proprietary functions. The internal memory is decent. The videos are HD and there is the GPS. Basically, a smart phone average with a reasonable price.
Pros: Ample memory and expandable; LED flash, resolution and quality display, front camera, NFC module, dual-core processor; Interchangeable cover, Design, Price, new operating system
Nokia Lumia 620 Review – Excellent Price-Quality Ratio
2 May 2013
Excerpt: The Lumia 800 is one of the first Windows Phone handsets launched by Nokia to become very popular on various markets. Next in line, Nokia Lumia 900 took it even further and contributed to the first positive financial quarter for the Finnish company in a long time. Aside from Nokia, a few other companies were interested in releasing Windows Phone mobile phones, including Samsung, LG, Huawei and HTC.
Pros: Nokia Lumia 620 comes with a few features that other high-end Windows Phone 8 handsets lack, like the microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB). It also offers the same level of music sound quality, along with Nokia’s complete navigation solution that includes Maps and Drive services. The 5-megapixel rear camera is another strong point of the phone, as well as the fact that it comes equipped with a more than decent 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 proce...
Cons: The first thing I would like to highlight for those thinking to purchase a Windows Phone 8 handset is the fact that there’s no file manager. The device does not have a notification LED and lacks Radio FM feature, which usually is included with budget-friendly smartphones. Another negative aspect of having a Windows Phone handset is the insufficient app catalog in comparison with other mobile platforms available on the market. However, each day, more and more developer...
Excerpt: The Lumia 620 could easily be regarded as one of the cutest smartphones on the shelf. It’s small, colourful, lightweight and looks a little bit like a little toy. It’s got a lot going for it, including a very reasonable price, Rs 14,600. But considering Android also has this price bracket cornered with some pretty impressive, high-spec'd devices, the questions is, will the 620 stand a chance? Read on to find out.
Summary: What we like about the affordable Nokia Lumia 620 is the build quality and the premium materials used, smooth performance, surprisingly competent camera and a whole bunch of apps that add value for a certain demographic of users. However, there are the compromises. Display is a tad too small if you prefer bigger sized displays, and the on-screen keyboard is just too cramped. The small battery may be a handicap for anything more than medium usage as a primary phone.
