Nokia Lumia 620 review

T he Finnish telecom company Nokia has introduced a mid-segment smartphone with the Lumia 620. The Nokia 620 is one of the few smartphones with the Windows Phone 8 operating system that is for sale for less than €250. Next to the Windows operating system, the Lumia 620 is equipped with a 3.8-inch LCD touch screen, a 1GHz Dual-core processor and a 5 megapixel digital camera. Additionally, this Nokia smartphone has an internal memory of 8GB, which is expandable with a microSD memory card of a maximum of 64GB. At first glance these are not bad specifications for a smartphone in this segment. We put the Nokia 620 to an extensive practical test. Our Nokia Lumia 620 review including test photos follows.

The Nokia Lumia 620 is a smartphone that, due to its compact design, is comfortable to handle in contrast to the high-end smartphones of this time, so that you can operate all functions without having to change the phone’s position in your hand. The dimensions of the Lumia 620 are 115.4 x 61.1 x 11.0 millimeters, and the phone weighs 127 grams. Next to the operation via the touch screen, there are a set of three operation buttons available on the right side: the Camera button, the On/Off button and Volume button. With the design of the Lumia 620, Nokia clearly is trying to appeal to a broad audience, as the Lumia 620’s appearance can be adjusted to your personal taste, with the choice of 6 different covers: black, white, blue, green, pink, and orange.

Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone 8

For those that are already familiar with the Windows operating system, the start screen will come as no surprise, but the Lumia 620 is also a good choice for smartphone fans that do not have any experience yet with the Windows Phone 8 platform. It may be a big change if you are used to the Android or iOS operating system, but due to the user-friendliness, you can soon feel at home with the Nokia 620 Windows Phone 8 smartphone. By means of the ‘Tiles’ on the start screen, which you can completely design in terms of place and format, it is easy to personalize this smartphone. By swiping to the right, you get access to all applications, including the apps that are not placed on the start screen.
