Nokia Lumia 620 (affodable Windows Phone 8 For Youths) by runzlord(m): 5:43pm On Jan 21, 2013
The Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 give Nokia all the presence they need in the higher WP8 circles, but a smart maneuver has helped HTC emerge as a serious threat in the lower midrange. The Finns, who are obviously having none of that, responded swiftly to the Windows Phone 8S. After all, when the future of the whole company is resting on a single platform, you just can't leave anything to chance.

The Nokia Lumia 620 has obviously done its homework. Just like the HTC WP 8S, it offers a downclocked dual-core Krait CPU, 512MB ofRAM and a styling that's clearly targeting youths. This kind of approach makes a lot of sense - the WP8 definitely needs an awareness boost among younger users and reasonable spenders, if it's going to seriously challenge the dominating smartphone platforms.

Specs-wise the Nokia Lumia 620 is virtually identical to the HTC Windows Phone 8S. The two major differences are a smaller screen (just 0.2 inches, at the same resolution) and the 4GB of extra storage the Nokia offers. Make no mistake though - the superior brand recognition, and more importantly, the exclusive software make the Lumia 620 the favorite in this fight. Free lifetime voice guided navigation is not a bad thing to have and can make all the difference when two devices are as closely matched as this.
On the other hand the HTC 8S has a two-month head start and a seemingly superior build. Looks are important and HTC are always tough opposition when it comes todesign and build.

The visible downside i see is the low battery power it comes with . . .but the power of the device outpaces the price

This will rule others in the same category
