> In reply to ad wad @ 2013-02-01 08:33 from Xjes - click to readL620 pros:
* 8GB storage (8S - 4GB)
* Secondary camera

L620 cons:
* Smaller screen (3,8" vs 4")
* No Gorilla Glass
* Smaller battery (1300 mAh vs 1700 mAh)

Price:
HTC 8S - 250
L620 - 220


So... Both phones have their pluses and minuses. I would not say that Lumia 620 would be better.

Cud see high end gaming graphics...d only thing it lacks...is d phone memory....otherwise....this phone is epic...far far better than. Android...n yeah much better than...so called Samsung...i was using hd7 before..den Switched to Samsung android...n got so frustrated by it...so it made me to buy this epic phone....nw I barely spend my time on my alienware ...i play gun bros in my 8s...nice work HTC...but hope in future updates would come so I could transfer my apps from phone memory to SD card..

First of all Lumia 620's price is still a matter of speculation, 820 & 920 way above there expected prices...

Second is the phone size, Lumia can be expected to be more sturdy but looking at the overall Lumia series it might be bulky as others.. Next thing is the battery life of the phone, Lumia 620's might be worse off compared to 8S.. And the display size, 0.2" might not make difference to first time users, but I have been using a 4" display phone for a long time and that 0.2" mattered..

> In reply to senthil @ 2013-02-16 16:06 from U{vb - click to readThe battery of the phone is better compared to other windows/android devices with similar display sizes/specifications...

The big plus is the design of the phone, sleek and light it is.. Better than most of the phones out there... Camera is okayish.. Though specification wise it does not compare with Lumia 820, I haven't found its performance lagging anywhere so far... Another plus is the audio output of the phone, the sound in headphones is amazing..

One minus would be the internal memory, you get 1.6 GB to use for apps/games (Media can be stored on SD), which might be a little less if you are fond of using too many apps...

A good phone overall, people have been saying that waiting for 620 might be worth it but I saw this phone, liked it at first glance and picked it..

1- the battery is amazing for a smart phone even on Auto Brightness.
2- Music is so nice, and beats audio makes them awesome.
3- Whats app does not work properly on it.
4-very poor applications store due to region restriction "Egypt".
5- very good in reading e-mails, but calender is not the best.
6- fits easily in hand, and it took a couple of falls.. and still working :-D

the main problem on this phone is the memory
because the system will take 2 GB and the "other" folder will take 1.5 GB so the free space is 500 MB and you don't have the ability to install apps on the micro SD
,, so this is so terrible

Btw what i need is battery, as 8S have 1700mAh it is quite enough and Lumia 620 only got about 1300 mAh i also wonder how long that tiny phone gonna last in actual use. I want a useable phone not a useless with half day usage

So be warned this thing is severly crippled for a heavy user of downloaded data.I am going for Nokia Lumia 620 but they have sold out on my network due to a special offer.

owned Nokia's for years, then Android for 3 years, which I still have!...HTC 8s is a new Works fone...took me about an hour to set up including works Outlook and my private email etc!...it's actually a very nice phone...you need an SD card for decent memory and Windows apps not as plentiful as Android or IOS....but I like it!...nice phone...quite surprised with W8!
