During a few days this model has become the most popular and affordable device on a WP8 platform. The smartphone has excellent technical features and attractive design. In its niche Lumia 620 is the undisputed leader. This is a well-designed phone for a reasonable price. It can be recommended for those who wish to buy the first Windows-background device. More details about the features are in the below review.
Design and Ergonomics of Nokia Lumia 620
“The principle of matrioshka (Russian dolls)”, when every smartphone series Lumia repeats its predecessor with a slight difference in size, this time has not been embraced by developers. The phone has been turned out quite original. Being quite small by itself, its special future is it’s the most constricted frame. The dimensions of the 620-th repeat the notorious ones of iPhone 4S model (except the diagonal of the screen). The problem is when the body bites into the hand of all its sharp points, has been solved by rounded corners.
Another advantage of the device is its color palette, which is much wider (7 options) than from most its fellows. There is an assortment of legendary blue (only “Lumia”) and neon green. So happened that the panel in this series is a subject of separate conversation. In the particular case, this element of the smartphone has an unusual texture in terms of the special dyeing technology (reusable polycarbonate cover). The panels also serve a protective function. The model has a typical set of regulating buttons and connectors with usual location.
The Hardware Part and Autonomy
As in any other budget version of Lumia, in the 620-th there is installed Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU on MSM8627 chipset and Adreno 305graphics accelerator. Due to this, the efficiency is on the level. Volumes of the memory are as well as in any other low-cost smartphones of this family. In terms of indicators, the model has an average 1300 mAh battery. Simple arithmetic shows that with such a modest version of the processor and graphics accelerator it does not require a lot of energy to keep the unit afloat. Hence, a decent length of a battery life is 1 day an average.
Camera and Screen of Nokia Lumia 620
Average quality of shooting is the result work of a very simple 5-megapiks camera but which also has a frontal VGA-camera. Besides, there is added LED-flash and you can record video in the resolution of 720p. As an advantage we can mention the possibility of dynamic and intelligent recording (the ability to identify and remove unnecessary objects from the frame).
The display with a diagonal of 3.8” has a resolution of 800×480 pixels and is made by TFT technology. Unconditional dignity and “trick” of many Lumia members is a ClearBlack polarization layer. It provides a comprehensive overview and an anti-glare effect. Plus, it perfectly complements the interface in dark colors from the WP. The picture looks more voluminous and deep.
