Nokia Lumia 620 Review

The most awaited Windows Phone 8 finally launched in India, Nokia Lumia 620. This phone brings all the major features of a Windows Phone 8 Smartphone at a very affordable price. Initally, it was tagged as "the cheapest Windows Phone 8 Smartphone" but now we also have Lumia 520 waiting for it's release in India. 

The day Lumia 620 got released in India,  I was there in an Nokia Priority Store experiencing this device and exactly 6 Lumia 620 were purchased right in front of me. This clearly show how people were desperately waiting for this device to launch. Nokia Lumia 620 is priced at ₹14,990.
No time to waste, lets go through this phone and see what it has to offer.

In The Box

Nokia Lumia 620 comes with a very limited amount of accessories which is pretty decent for the price you are getting it for. Apart from the smartphone, the box contains the usual earphones(not the in-ear), a USB cable, charger and phone's manual.

Build Quality

Well, Nokia has never disappointed us when it comes to build quality. The back casing of Lumia 620 is solid.(Like a Rock!!) After a long time I saw such a casing for a smartphone. Weighing in at just 127g, one can easily say this phone can take any humps and bumps but easily attracts fingerprints which can be quiet annoying. The same cannot be said for the display as its not gorilla glass. There is a dedicated camera key located below the power button on the right side of the phone and volume keys just above the power key. The 3.5mm jack is situated above the phone on the left side.


Nokia Lumia 620 comes with 3.8 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels carrying a pixel density of 246 ppi which produces sharp and decent images. You will not be disappointed with the visual experience of this phone.

 Processor & Memory

 Nokia Lumia 620 is powered by 1 GHz Krait Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. It comes with built-in  8GB internal memory and expandable upto 64GB.


 Lumia 620 runs the latest Windows Phone 8 OS which makes it a catch for people looking for WP 8 at an affordable price. The OS is totally smooth and there are no noticeable lags.  The live tiles just works like a charm no matter the amount of applications you pin to start. But then again, lack of apps on this platform is quiet a drawback for now.
The phone is filled with Nokia apps which includes Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps (Offline Maps), Nokia Music and City Lens.


Lumia 620 packs in a 5 MP camera with LED flash and auto focus and a secondary VGA camera.

Videos on Lumia 620 can be recorded at 720p at 30fps.


At last, Nokia Lumia 620 comes with 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery (BL-4J) which is really bad. If you are on 3G, it won't even last a day. If you are out somewhere on trip, its better not to rely on Lumia 620.


The phone stands upto any challenge in its range and its a must buy for those who are looking a sturdy phone with a reliable brand on it. The only place where one has to sacrifice is it's battery life.
