This HTC 8s model is a middle class smartphone, it is a more affordable version compared for example to the 8X. Anyway, the design is so much cooler, and the WP OS hasn't let me down, I'm crazy about it!
Cons : Average Camera Performances, Very limited internal memory (4GB, 1GB available to user), Apps can ONLY be installed on the phone memory.
Pros : Social Networks Integration, Microsoft Apps Synchronization (Mail, Notes, Calendar), Great OS defining, Office available for productivity, Quick Web Browsing (yes, even with IE 10 browser).

oh yea, the nokia will hold better resale value too. the best thing about the HTC is the better battery life. But nokia also load up thier phone with better customized apps including nokia's maps and GPS (which is the best known in the market).

I prefer the 8s to the Nokia 620. I tried both, and for me the secondary cam and the NFC are not that important. But battery backup is the most important. 1700mAh vs 1300mAh. Also the 8s features gorilla glass and a four inch screen. Design is also better on the 8s. But where HTC fails is the user memory. But installing a micro sd card to put your files beside apps will resolve this problem. Also one thing that I think will be a problem is when using apps on the Nokia 620, is the battery. Although it has a bigger internal memory, using apps will reduce the battery real quick.

Pros of the Nokia 620:
-NFC
-Secondary Cam
-Nokia apps
-8GB internal memory

Pros of HTC 8s:
-Better design and build quality
-Four inch screen with gorilla glass
-Beats audio and some HTC apps(fails compared to that of Nokia)

In the end, no matter what you buy, beside the above differences, the experience will be mostly the same.

> 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.

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..
