The Nokia Lumia 620 is the most affordable Windows Phone 8 device out there, a phone that has the potential to do great things for both Nokia and the Windows 8 platform. Reviews of the device has been trickling in slowly and according to these reviews, the Lumia 620 is worth every penny.
Here is a short review round-up of the Lumia 620 from popular Web sites all over the Internet.
Engadget - Mat Smith: "The Lumia 620 represents a new high-watermark for entry-level smartphones, regardless of OS. Ignoring the app drawbacks, the phone provides a great web browser experience alongside the full Windows Phone 8 feature set. It could be a very exciting phone for Nokia -- it's an exciting one for us. We've mentioned the price several times during the review, but for a new smartphone with the latest version of its respective OS, it's a steal. The phone might house a less-capable camera, but for anyone sick of oversized, unwieldy, expensive smartphones, Nokia now has an entry-level Windows Phone to lure the bargain-hunting crowds away from Android, if the Nexus 4 proves too expensive."
Know Your Mobile - Basil Kronfli: "It's a solid phone - fun to look at, customisable and comfortable to hold and use. The 620's screen quality is also very respectable, and it's sized well for the on-screen keyboard and Windows Phone 8 on the whole.
Speaking of the OS, it's simple to use and functional. We've hit the point home that Windows Phone it might not cater to some more demanding smartphone users thanks to a few holes in terms of app support and UI functionality."
CNET - Andrew Hoyle: "The Lumia 620 provides a lot of the best features from Nokia's top-end phones, but with a significantly lower price tag. Its colourful cases not only make it more fun, but help take the worry out of damaging your mobile. Reviewers so far have good things to say about the Nokia Lumia 620, but that won't matter much if it fails to perform at retail. With its affordable price and all the features the Lumia 620 brings to the table, this beauty could outperform the Lumia 920 in many markets."
