Design – cheap toy look
Nokia has often been known to produce nice-looking phones, and among other things Nokia Lumia 800 also garnered numerous design prices to the producer. Personally, I doubt that they will get any awards for Lumia 620. In addition to the phone looks cheap out, then one can also feel it is not the best quality, when it is held in the hand.
I have during the whole test period has not yet met anyone who has had anything nice to say about the phone’s design. On the other hand, said many not so nice things.
If it looks just as bad out of the other colors, I could not say, but the yellow color, as we have had to test most closely resembles a cheap toy phone. Which is also the reactions others have come, when we have shown it.

The system is running as it should
Windows Phone is a highly stable operating system, which in the latest version 8 only have small bugs, and that just works and can excite a, even when you are dealing with a telephone to below 2,000 dollars without subscription to do.
The biggest problem for Windows Phone 8-platform is still that there is not yet quite the same application selection, as for Android and iOS. But, for example, with the new “112 app”, so that it came to all three systems simultaneously, so it goes in the right direction.
Facebook, which is an application many uses, is still, unfortunately, not good enough. But you get used to many things – especially because the system works well and stable in General.
In the past, has also been a great games in short supply for Windows Phone 8 phones but here is also beginning to happen something. The popular game Ruzzle and Temple Run has found its way to Windows Phone Large.
Battery – it is approved
The battery life on Lumia 620 are approved. Just before the test of Nokia Lumia 620 we had tested the Huawei Ascend W1, who has put an extra large battery in the phone – and compared that with it, so is the difference to feel. But the size of the battery is also great – 1,300 mAh battery sits there in Lumia 620, while Ascend W1 have a battery on the entire 1,950 mAh.
One day be solved without problems on Nokia Lumia 620, which is online at all. So that some users may even experience that can pinch two-day battery out of the phone. It is not abnormal that smartphones must be charged up every night.
Messages and keyboard
Messages written on the on-screen keyboard, just like on other Windows Phones, and here there can be no complaints. The keyboard is working and it is done without great problems.
The write speed can be quick, if you choose to make use of the predictive text the phone comes with. In line with know you better and better, so can the almost “guessing” what your next word is.
There is not anything in Windows Phone T9 keyboard, but a QWERTY-keyboard-and the possibility of smileys takes place quickly and easily via your keyboard.
The Internet works fine
Once you have become accustomed to how the browser looks on a Windows Phone, so Internet works as it should.
All Windows Phones are designed with a dedicated search button at the bottom right of the phone – this is also the case on Nokia Lumia 620. When you press the “magnifying glass” so you come immediately to Microsoft’s competitor to Google as the search engine Bing – here there may then search for Web pages, images and local interests in the vicinity.
The browser is Internet Explorer. From this can be made “bookmarks”, which comes out on the front page as a small “tiles”, this is done by selecting “PIN to start”.
The camera fails
Nokia Lumia 620 comes with a 5 megapixel camera – and big brother Lumia 920 has received much praise for the camera, but there is a long way for Lumia 620.
It is possible both to take pictures with the physical camera key, as well as by clicking on the screen where you want the focus to be put in the picture.
You can view pictures taken with Lumia 620 in the gallery below. Our conclusion is that the images are bad on the verge of hopeless.
Conclusion – big brother knock-outer little brother
Nokia Lumia 620 came on the Danish market in the 21st century. March for a suggested price of $1,999 dollars without subscription, but already now is the price dropped so the more places are available for 1,799 dollars without subscription – which I believe is a more fair price. You can view the current prices at our site.
Compare that with the Huawei Ascend W1, which came on the market more or less simultaneously, then you get with W1 a phone that immediately looks out more. Bigger screen and nicer design. Huawei Ascend W1 is clearly a phone I would recommend to those who do not need the navigation portion, or the other exclusive Nokia applications.
But it has been the need for the extra features, then you can consider Nokia Lumia 620. However, I would recommend giving a little extra money and instead choose Lumia 820, which we now can get for only 2,220 dollars without subscription – see our site. Lumia 820 is a much better buy on pretty much all points.
To Lumia 820 just now has fallen as much in price also makes, in my opinion, “life very difficult for Lumia 620”. Therefore lands Nokia Lumia 620 on 3 out of 6 stars. Since Lumia 820 outperforms it. I would not advise someone to buy Lumia 620, but instead use a couple of hundred dollars more and get Lumia 820.And you will have a Windows Phone in price hired 1,500-2,000 dollars then you should take a closer look at Huawei Ascend W1.
It must be said, however, that the phone had gotten 4 stars if the price can be found for around 1,500 SEK.
