After the releases of the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 820 which are aimed at the high end and midrange markets respectively, Nokia has another entry to the Lumia line. This is no other than the Nokia Lumia 620. The Nokia Lumia 620 was launched just last December of 2012. It was officially released on January 2013. The Nokia Lumia 620 is an entry level smart phone. This handset is the successor to the Nokia Lumia 610 which was released earlier this year. Like its successor, this handset is also an entry level smart phone.
The Nokia Lumia 620 is part of the second generation of the Lumia line along with the Nokia Lumia 820 and the Nokia Lumia 920. Compared to both of the other phones in the current generation of the Lumia line, the Nokia Lumia 620 is the most toned down. But even though it takes last place among the three second generation Lumia phones, it is still a good smart phone for its price. The Nokia Lumia 620 comes in a lot of colors. You can pick between green, orange, pink, yellow, blue, white and black.
In a world where almost every smart phone is either black or white, I give props to Nokia for giving the consumers freedom to pick the color of their phone according to their style. Aside from it being colorful, the Nokia Lumia 620 body measures only 115.4 x 61.1 x 11 mm and weighs 127g. This handset also runs on Windows Phone 8. It is one of the firsts if not first of its kind to be an entry level smart phone running the latest Windows Phone operating system. The Nokia Lumia 620 has a 1.0 GHz dual-core CPU and 512 MB of RAM. It has an 8 GB of internal storage capacity. You can also expand the memory since it also features a micro SD card slot.
The Nokia Lumia 620 features a 3.8 inch LCD Clear Blackcapacitive touch screen running at 800 x 480 resolutions at 246 pixels per inch. The Nokia Lumia 620 has rear and front facing cameras. Its rear facing camera can capture photos with its 5 megapixel lens with LED flash. It can also capture video at 1280 x 720 (720p HD) resolution. Its front facing camera is only VGA quality but not bad at all. The Nokia Lumia 620 will also support NFC. Other connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a,b,g,n and Bluetooth 3.0. The Nokia Lumia 620 runs on a 1300mAh Li – Ion battery.
The Nokia Lumia 620 is the first entry level smart phone in the second generation of Nokia’s Lumia line. You can’t really compare it to the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 820. But for its price, it is really a good buy. So if you really want to buy a smart phone that runs on the latest Windows Phone operating system but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, the Nokia Lumia 620 is the perfect smart phone for you. It is truly a great addition to the second generation of Nokia’s Lumia line.
