Nokia Lumia 620 is announced - cheap and colorful
posted by Nick T. / Dec 05, 2012, 4:12 AM
That's exactly what the Nokia Lumia 620 has to differentiate itself with. Its maker has applied what it calls a "dual-shot" color technique, which means that a layer of translucent or transparent polycarbonate is laid over the bottom color coat. This produces secondary color blends and adds texture effects to the smartphone's shell.
But we know that you are also interested in hearing more about its specs, so here they are: the Nokia Lumia 620 has a 3.8-inch ClearBlack TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels. It is equipped with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor running at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, and a pair of cameras: a 5-megapixel main one with auto-focus and LED flash, and a VGA front-facing snapper. 8GB of storage are on board, but they can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. The 1,300mAh battery should be good for almost 10 hours of talk time.
The Nokia Lumia 620 is scheduled to arrive in January of 2013 and will cost roughly $250. Markets across Asia will be the first to get it, followed by Europe and the Middle East. It will be available in lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, white and black.
- Display 3.8" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 8 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 1300 mAh(9.9h 3G talk time)

Nokia, credits goes to you for such a generous and healthy price tag. It's so good of them. It is one of the most affordable dual core and the most affordable wp. Specs are good and can easily be called a good mid ranger. It looks great. The rear camera is hd. It has a front camera unlike HTC 8S. Good job Nokia.

Getting this instead of the 8S just because of Nokia Exclusive Apps. Only thing I see hindering this is the 1300mAh battery. Hopefully the battery is accessible so people can just pop in a spare one. One other thing that kinda bugs me, if they lessen the bezel near the buttons they could've put a 4-inch screen instead of 3.8.

Well, I think THIS is actually the best WP offering. WP looks good enough from a casual use viewpoint, and as such this is one of the best mid rangers on the market! Only issue could be with the screen size for a portrait typing, giving that there's no 9 key t9 layout.

The Lumia 710 has a slightly smaller screen 3.7" and it's a cinch to type on it. I always type on portrait as I find it easier compared to the landscape mode for some reason. I also had an HTC 7 Mozart which also had the same screen size. Given my experience with those Windows Phones I can tell that typing isn't much of a problem despite the screen size. Especially with predictive text enabled you can just type away and correcting any mistakes is as easy as tapping on the word and picking the right one. I agree that this is the best WP8 offering now. I might get my parents into WP8 with this phone since they're not very expensive.
