Nokia's Lumia 620 smartphone successfully delivers a complete Windows Phone 8 experience for a low price, but buyer beware of some compromises in battery, sound, and design.

The Lumia 620 has none of the problems of Nokia's 920 (size, high cost) and the 820 (high cost) but is a lovely, charming and pleasant phone to use. ... This is, in short, a winner, and honestly probably just about the best WP8 device out there.

Reset your expectations of a smartphone. Stop thinking of it as an either/or decision Android or iOS; put yourself in the mindset of the everyman. We’ve praised Windows Phone before for its suitability to a new smartphone user, and the Lumia 620 fits that category well.

The Lumia 620 isn't quite an entry-level device, but it's a reasonably accessible route into the world of Windows 8 for the less well-heeled. Nice to see that Nokia hasn't held back on the spec, with a nippy processor, decent camera and a perfectly fine screen, plus useful extras like NFC and...

The Nokia Lumia 620 is a revelation, showing that budget Windows Phone mobiles don’t have to be riddled with compromises and lack any semblance of personality. Top-notch hardware design, plenty of power and a feature list that betters many Android phones at the price should make this the gateway...

If you’re after a Windows 8 Phone, the Lumia 620 is a good if not great option. It’s affordable but lacks the apps and expansion options of Android. The Office and exclusive Nokia Drive and Music services really need a bigger screen to show their credentials.

The Lumia 620 has a good screen, a nice user interface, great responsiveness and good sound quality. On the downside, it takes poor quality photos and has low battery life.

We'll happily recommend the Lumia 620 above its similarly priced Android competition, and it's the ideal smartphone for those looking to give Windows Phone 8 a spin.

Nokia has done a good job with the Lumia 620. It’s crammed Windows Phone 8 into a small chassis that has swappable backplates for added appeal. The company has also included the free add-on apps that help distinguish the Lumia range. With NFC on board for future-proofing, too, the Lumia 620...

This is a very basic phone, almost boring to use. UI is clear and simple, but still for some reason, it isn't always easy to find what you are looking for.
