  • best windows smartphone in budget
    Shekar Raja (May 14, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    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. Design and Display The Nokia 620 is not that slim,There are 3 touch navigation buttons on the front side. The screen is with clearblack technology and the display is clearly visible even under direct sunlight. The rear side is matt finish,The display screen is 3.81 inches supporting 800480 pixels resolution with 16M colours. Multi touch is supported and there are magnetic, light, accelerometer and proximity sensors. The viewing angle is really good, the picture is sharp, the touch is smooth and responsive. Processor and Performance The Lumia 620 is powered by Qualcomm Krait Dual core processor clocked at 1.0GHz coupled with Adreno 305 GPU. The performance is butter smooth and there is also access to the store to download additional apps and games. 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 Connectivity The handset supports 3G , 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.cant play high end games because of limited amount of ram Battery with The 1300mAh battery the handset will easily last for a full 24 hours on a single charge. verdict 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.

  • Windows Phone 8 stands out and Lumia 620 is best buy!
    Praful Yadav (May 5, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Why should you buy WP? Why not Android or iOS? Best answer is WP does BASIC tasks very efficiently. WP is not app-centric like Android or iOS. Few Examples: 1. You can integrate all contacts from all ur accounts (Facebook, Hotmail/Outlook, Google, LinkedIn, twitter etc.) into single place called people's hub. You can create a group, by choosing some people & name that group, then pin it to start. That group tile only contains info about those people u selected. If u swipe right side, you get all updates from all set accounts in single place like Facebook wall/tweets etc. If you use android or iOS, you must install multiple apps and jump between them and there are some 3rd party apps too but their experience is very dull and not polished compared to integrated approach of WP. 2. Pressing camera key launches camera no matter where u are, even if phone is locked (long press camera button). Snap a pic and instantly share it in any way u want (NFC, Mail, Bluetooth etc). Same works for search button. Many times you install applications related to camera. In android u must launch that app for using it. In WP, launch camera normally and press lenses option & u get list of all apps related to camera and u can simply choose one from list and bam! You get the functionality of the app , don't like that lens? Choose another or download more from store. 3. Tiles: You can pin your favourite web pages, videos, albums, documents, contacts etc. to ur homescreen for quick access. You can also pin shortcuts for switching on/off Bluetooth, WiFi etc. You can also pin Tiles for stocks, weather, news etc. Live tiles help u to see what?s happening; they get updated in real time. Overall interface of WP is very clean, intuitive & consistent across the OS and even the third party apps. 4. Kid's Corner: You have kids? Then Kid's corner is for you. It?s is like a phone inside another phone. Turn on kid's corner and add apps, games, music which you want to allow access. When u press lock button, phone gets turned on and now swipe towards right, u get second lock screen for your kid. Kid's corner cuts off connectivity and prevents children from access or messing with data. Don't have kids? Use it like "Media centre" or "Nokia centre" with specific apps u selected. I turned kid's corner into media centre with all media stuff. You can also use it as Guest account by adding all non-personal apps so that you can handover ur phone to anyone without privacy concerns. 5. Sky Drive: Sky Drive uploads automatically whatever photos and contacts u added in your phone to the cloud- as Outlook or Google. You can turn off if u want, but it?s quite useful because data is safe on cloud. 6. Don?t forget Nokia & MS apps. They are awesome! Office and Office 365 suite is integrated in OS along with Exchange server for business users. There are official apps for other MS productivity tools like Lync. Nokia HERE Drive is only true offline voice guided turn by turn navigation suite in whole w

  • average phone
    Harsh Patel (May 14, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    When it comes to nokia lumia , mostly people hesitate to buy , although it has very good features , looks , quality , durablity . when it comes to nokia the first thing that striks in mind is camera quality and battery power . currently it is powered with 1ghz processor with 512 MB ram which is not sufficient if you are looking from gaming prospectus . In windows even common game like subway surf or temple run2 require 1 gb ram , other wise it will be not be displayed on the market place and people going for windows phone for gaming purpose are on the wrong path . this mobile is only best for business man who had to constantly require to check their mail , office use etc . lumia 620 comes with 5 mega pixel of camera with flash and vga quality front camera . on buying lumia devices , it comes with standard offer of nokia music free unlimited downloads for 6 month . it has city lence which enable us to get information of hospital , restraunt, hotel, medical, police station etc in particular direction by viewing with help of camera and other photo effects which r been never seen on any android or apple device . the only problem with windows mobile is that it lacks availablity of quality apps in market . so probably i will give average rating for this and sujest u to go for android .

    Nokia Lumia 620 like its Lumia siblings offer good performance.I have been using this since 6 months.Apps are a bit low in number thats a headache.Apps are loaded into phone memory and one can't move any apps to SD card.It becomes a bit too hot for heavy usage.It offers Internet sharing option which is why I liked it and I can surf the net on my laptop.
