Nokia Lumia 620 reviewed… by Nokia
Whenever a new products is launched, interested customers start looking fore reviews – and they expect to find them on independent websites. Well, if you’re looking for Lumia 620 reviews, you will probably be surprised to find a review on Nokia’s official blog, written by a Nokia employee (or collaborator, at least). This, of course, is a bit ridiculous.
The so-called review doesn’t even point out the downsides of the Lumia 620, doesn’t compare it to other smartphones in its class, and doesn’t provide an in-depth look at its features and capabilities. Don’t get me wrong. The Lumia 620 seems to be great for those in need of an affordable smartphone, regardless of its OS. But being reviewed by someone who works for the company that manufactures it just can’t do justice for the device.
Update: probably because of all the comments the article got (see at the bottom of it), Nokia changed its name from “review” to “hands-on.” That’s much better.
Available as of mid January, the Nokia Lumia 620 is the company’s cheapest Windows Phone 8 handset, costing around €250. Its features include a 3.8 inch WVGA ClearBlack display, NFC, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card slot, and a 1,300 mAh battery.
