  1. Excellent phone! I think this is not only cheap Nokia Smartphone; there is also Asha which is sold out good, but the features provided by Nokia Lumia 620 is outstanding and I am planning to get one this Christmas. Thanks for sharing this post!

  2. Wow! It looks really cool, I think I’m going to purchase one, I’ve lost my Lumia 800 last month and I just got used to the windows mobile platform. And of course, I feel totally assured by your review as well;)

  3. I guess Nokia is unnecessarily launching new phones under the Lumia category because people are hardly buying any of those phones. Coming to the looks, yes the phone looks good with this variety of colors, features and also the new price. However, it does not attract me.

  4. That’s a seriously good looking Smartphone, unlike 610. It has got a well rounded specification too, so it looks like some serious competition for the mid to lower end of the market. As per my knowledge, this is the most selling cell phone. Even for someone like me who will go for the high end phones I would definitely go for this one as my secondary phone. The only thing I would miss here will be the big screen. Somehow it seems that color in Smartphones is Nokia’s brand, the green one definitely appeals. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post!

  5. Lumia 620 looks like a great phone at the cost which they are providing it.Also it looks like a quite neat phone and it is very affordable at the price that they have set it.I will surely buy this phone if it is possible because it looks great and windows 8 operating system will be something new.
