Nokia Lumia 620, análisis

Nokia Lumia 620 Review

 

Here's a spoiler: Nokia's Lumia 620 is arguably the most balanced device in the company's current line-up, and it makes a case for being the best mainstream smartphone on the market today. Excessive praise for a cheap Windows Phone ? Perhaps, but when...

Reset your expectations of a smartphone. Stop thinking of it as an either/or decision Android or iOS; put yourself in the mindset of the everyman. We’ve praised Windows Phone before for its suitability to a new smartphone user, and the Lumia 620 fits...

Nokia Lumia 620 review:

 

This review originally posted at 1/08/2013, and was updated 09/12/2013 with performance specs for the Aio Wireless model.

The Nokia Lumia 620 has a glare-cutting screen, a decent 5-megapixel camera, NFC, and an affordable price tag.

The Lumia 620 loses points for poor call quality, a short screen time-out, a small battery, and numerous design issues -- including a hard-to-find SIM card slot.

Nokia's Lumia 620 smartphone successfully delivers a complete Windows Phone 8 experience for a low price, but buyer beware of some compromises in battery, sound, and design.

Nokia Lumia 620 review: precisely what an entry-level smartphone should be

 

More InfoNokia announces the Lumia 620Nokia Lumia 920 reviewWindows Phone 8 reviewThe Lumia 620 is Nokia's most affordable Windows Phone 8

Attractively priced ; Good battery life ; Performance matches higher-end devices

Middling camera performance ; Windows Phone 8 lacks app selection of entry-level Android phones

The Lumia 620 is a budget phone offering good performance and an attractive design. It sets a new benchmark for low-price smartphones.

Nokia Lumia 620 preview: First look

 

The Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 give Nokia all the presence they need in the higher WP8 circles, but a smart maneuver has helped HTC emerge as a serious threat in the lower midrange. The Finns, who are obviously having none of that, responded swiftly to...

Nokia Lumia 620 Review

 

The Lumia 620 is a Windows Phone 8 smartphone for the masses, yet offering additional value in many aspects and different by design. This time again, Nokia is focusing on vibrant colors…

Great vivid screen ; Solid smooth performance ; Excellent Nokia apps, built-in Office

A bit chubby ; Battery life could be better

The Lumia 620 is a great effort by Nokia all around. It has a standout design that will appeal to many, especially the young, a good (but not perfect) camera for its class supporting 720p HD video capture, and runs on the now more mature Windows Phone 8.

Nokia Lumia 620 Review – Excellent Price-Quality Ratio

 

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...

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...

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...
