First of all Sorry for a long gap between posts…..hopefully I can start writing regularly again…anyway in this gap I managed to get my hands on and play with a Nokia Lumia 620. From some in-depth reviews by well known tech sites, it is one of the best midrange smartphones available today.So I was curious to find out how it feels in the real world.
First of all I’ve never used a Windows Phone before (7 & later)….and even though I use Windows 8 in my laptop, I was new to using the tile based interface on a touchscreen based phone. The Lumia 620 is very nice to hold and grip with it’s soft plastic and it’s dimensions and weight (115.4 x 61.1 x 11 mm @ 127 grams) entirely acceptable. Next the screen, measuring 3.81″ and with a Clear Black LCD display of 800 x 480 pixels (246 ppi) is good enough for me for the price range it fits. The screen is nice and bright.
Inside the 620, it’s powered by a Snapdragon S4 1 Ghz dual core processor with 512 MB RAM. Tech jargon aside, for the basic tasks of calls / sms / email / music / video it was smooth and easy to use.Windows Phone 8 with its customizable tiles was a pleasure to use and the learning curve was pretty smooth. Even though the battery was rated at 1300 mAh, the phone owner with his daily range of calls / sms / emails / games / music was able to get 1.5 – 2 days of battery life.
So that’s it for now, hopefully I will be able to bring some more interesting insights into Lumia 620 in future posts. It’s definitely a recommended smartphone.Meanwhile you can buy it here >>
