I was surprised to read that the very budget Nokia Lumia 620 appears to have “rich recording”. It may have just slipped my memory or I was not aware at all – I’m finding a lot of techy stuff is getting pushed out of my head in favour of medical related items. uh oh.
Anywhoo, EasycapExpertti explains that the Nokia Lumia 620, like the 808, 920, 820 and 810 have HAAC microphones. This means the recorded audio becomes distortion free when it’s super loud, whilst also being able to record that grumbling low tone bass. That amazes me as audio from some high supposedly high end handsets cause ear bleeding. No wonder PocketNow suggests people skip the 8X. You get more for less elsewhere.
Nokia Lumia 620 has HAAC microphones as like Nokia 808 & Lumia 920/822/820/810 and so the recorded audio is distortion free also at the loudest music performances and it can record also very low bass sound vs its rivals has nonHAAC mics and so the recorded audio at music concert recordings is mostly distorted & they can’t capture low bass sound.
Not all Nokia’s could have handled loud volume. None to the extent perhaps of rich recording, but the likes of the N9/N900 could handle loud sounds a lot better than say, the N8. It had crystal clear audio until you reached high volumes. You can hear this below.
Cheers EasycapExpertti for the tip!
