The Nokia Lumia 620 comes powered by a dual core processor running on the Windows Phone 8 (WP8) OS with 512MB RAM over a 3.81 inch touchscreen. This is a powerful and the best smartphone with WP8 for under Rs. 15,000.

Memory, Storage and OS
The RAM of 512MB is more than sufficient to run the WP8 OS over the dual core processor. Add to it there is an internal storage space of 8GB and micro SD slot for adding max 64GB additional storage cards. Of the 8GB space about 2.52GB is used.

Camera of 5MP resolution
The 5MP auto focus camera quality is good there is a dedicated camera button that works just like on compact / SLR cameras. You press the button a little and it will focus and then press it all the way down to capture the shot.

The interface is simple and easy to use with minimal settings. There are various modes like panorama, smart shoot, Bing vision and Cinemagraph, plus option to find and download more lenses. There is built in LED flash and the camera can record videos in 720p (HD) resolution at 29fps. There is also a secondary camera. I have not checked if the handset can play full HD (1080p) videos but I doubt it will. If you own the Lumia 620 let me know if you can play full HD videos.

The handset supports 3G (21Mbps HSDPA), 2G (EDGE/ GPRS), there is built in IE 10 browser, micro USB port, Wi-Fi with hotspot, micro USB port, GPS with A-GPS / GLONASS that works with Nokia Maps, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and Single micro SIM support.

Others / Games
The loudspeaker / in call sound is loud and clear. For gaming there are some pre installed options like the Angry birds but you need to download the data. You can also connect your Xbox account with this handset.

The 1300mAh battery gives a standby time of 330 hours and talktime is over 8 hours to 14 hours depending on the network. For moderate users the handset will easily last for a full 24 hours on a single charge.

Nokia Lumia 620 Review
If you are a Nokia fan and/or a fan of the Windows Mobile operating system, this is the best you can get for the price. The display quality is excellent, the camera is pretty good, the performance is buttery smooth and price just right.
