More love for the Nokia Lumia 620. CNet and Pocket-lint give 4.5 stars out of 5!

Screen Shot 2013-02-08 at 10.15.25Another day another set of positive reviews for the Nokia Lumia 620.

Yesterday, Engadget praised the 620 and said it was precisely what an entry level smartphone should be.

Now we’ve also got CNET-uk and Pocket-lint awarding it a very high 4.5/5.

Screen Shot 2013-02-08 at 10.19.24CNet’s summary is above. All the good stuff is all about Nokia. The bad? The MS apps bit :p.

Pocket-lint says they loved pretty much everything about the 620 though unlike CNET who says battery life is decent are concerned about the battery life.

Cheers all for the heads up!

    This is a great example of how all rounded device should be with very competitive price. Why can’t they make this in their Symbian days? Why they have to ruin the 600, 603, 700 & 701 without the auto-focus camera?

    Hope this is where Nokia begin to realize the important of all-rounded device. Wish Nokia can make 9++ series as the innovative high end device. 8++ as high end device (slim) to compete with Droids Flagships and iPhone.
    7++ as mid range device, 6++ as affordable device and 5++ as low range device. Asha with multitask capabilities to fill the void of 4++ series…

    This is going to be fun. This blog has many predictions; be it carriers boycotting anything with Skype on it, to lumias peaking at 4 millions sales. I think the lumia 620 disagrees with that notion. ;)

    Let’s hope T-Mobile launches it, but I am afraid the T-Mo Flame is a somehow dumbed down or more conventional looking (i.e. boring) device… :(

    No surprise that the only problem with the 620 is the stuff pertaining to WP…Nokia, if you put Android or even Sailfish on these things they would sell like crazy!

    • arts says:

      Why? The only issue here is the lack of apps, and how is salfish better in that regard??

      Android devices, the comparables ones, in the same price range of this little buddy here don’t perform nearly as well as 620.

    Dammit Nokia, now you’re on a roll! :) I’m tempted to get this 620 rather than an 820 but it runs Windows… I used to be indifferent to this but now I can’t see myself jumping to yet another locked-in, proprietary operating system.

    If I didn’t have any developer baggage with Symbian and Meego, I would cross over to WP8, but now I’m holding out for BB10, Jolla Sailfish and Ubuntu on mobiles. Once you’ve experienced the dream (and nightmare) of cross-platform development with Qt and Qml, there is no going back to something Microsoft-only.

    Heck, I’m tempted by the cyan/yellow aka green Lumia 620 and I’m already sporting a Pikachu 920!

    Nokia just hit this one out of the park. Wonderful product, it seems, the 620.

  7. Grendell says:

    Good job with the 620, Nokia! Now stick in all the other symbian functionalities symbian owners used to enjoy and take over the world!

    Hey, the powers that be at Nokia!

    Tired of reading positive reviews, getting frustrated, would like to buy the phone in India at an accurate price as soon as possible

    Now please move it!
