Fun, well-designed and great value on prepay - it’s a Budget Buy Windows Phone 8 handset.

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 drug for many who have been unconvinced by Windows Phone to date.

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 Nokia's Maps, Music and Drive features. The bright and bold colours may be designed to appeal to "da youth" but this is a very attractive handset for any age.

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.

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.

IT Pro Portal
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 deserves success.

There's not a whole lot that the Nokia Lumia 620 does wrong. As an all-round, jack of all trades budget handset it does a great job.

The Inquirer
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.

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.
