When we announced the Nokia Lumia 620 back in December, it attracted lots of attention, and many comments from you, our readers. We’ve gone through those comments to answer some of your questions.
This isn’t the only comment asking for when the Nokia Lumia 620 will be released in a specific country. As is usual, we can’t give exact dates of when devices will be launched and in which country. However, you can keep up-to-date on the availability of Lumia 620 in your country by checking the local pages.
“Guys, what do you think of the battery? 1300 mAh seems disappointing to me.“
I’ve been using the Lumia 620 on a daily basis for over a month now, and the battery has never let me down. I mostly use my phone for sending and receiving emails and the occasional phone call, generally lasting anywhere from five minutes to an hour. There’s always plenty of battery life left at the end of the day, even when I decide to take some photos, play some games or get a little productive with some apps.
“Does this thing have any protective glass like Gorilla Glass?“
In short, no. The Nokia Lumia 620 doesn’t have Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass. However, it does have toughened glass that does an exceptional job at protecting the screen. After one month of daily usage, our Nokia Lumia 620’s screen is looking almost as fresh as the day we took it out from the box – there are only a few minor scratches at the bottom. Storing a phone in the same pocket as your loose change will have a slight impact, but these scratches are barely noticeable.
“I like it … How about the sensors? Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and compass… I’m a developer. Can I develop apps as well and debug on this device?“
On-board the Lumia 620 is a 3D accelerometer, ambient light sensors, a proximity sensor and a compass (magnetometer sensor). Of course you can develop apps for the Nokia Lumia 620, as well as other Nokia Lumia smartphones. Developer.nokia.com is full of training material and documentation to help you create amazing apps. There’s also a bunch of software too, including links to the SDKs.
“I wonder if the 512 MB RAM will start any restriction like on the Lumia 610, which lacks the capability of playing applications like Skype and Angry Birds. I asked this because the other Lumias with WP8 have 1GB RAM.“
Skype and Angry Birds run just fine on the Nokia Lumia 620. Both are currently installed on my device.
The GPU inside this device is an Adreno 305, created by Qualcomm.
