A very good phone at such a low price (according to Lumia series price)..... I'ld say Best buy.... if you want more features that this... You might head toward Lumia 820, coz 620 & 720 aren't good enough according to their respective price range.... Disadvantages==> 1) No Flash. 2)Compass sensor not present (required to use city lens). 3)No audio enhancing controls. 4)No key lights.

Kronus, 06 Jul 2013I would like to buy this phone as my first smartphone but i am confused with 620, what are you... moreIf you can't afford to buy Lumia 620, go for Lumia 520, the specification is almost the same. Lumia 520 lacks of flash LED, video call camera and ClearBlack Display, others are the same. Lumia 520 screen is bigger than Lumia 620.

The best configuration phone you can get from a reputed brand... moreUser have no complete control over his phone -> There is no phone that gives complete control to user. IF this is given, every phone will be in service center! Btw, WP gives more control to user than android. For eg. apps cannot write to library without user permission, nor can they delete.
Picture and video hubs are real mess. Picture hub tile and background displays random pictures, no matter its ur girlfriends picture or pornstars...
-> Not true. You can set it by adding whichever photo(s) you want to favorites. You may need to unpin and pin the tile again once.
In picture hub all pictures in one place no way to categorize, same problem arises with video hub... Privacy matters... -> I'm not sure what categorization means. Picture hub stores pics in different albums. There are third party apps to search and access pics.
In camara options lot of features are missing... autofocus not working well with small subjects and shutter lag is really high -> I agree with this one. I'm ok with this at 9k but camera lovers may dislike it.
No way to know files properties and size -> And what will you do knowing it? Files, folders, processes and such ancient stuff are irrelevant in today's smartphone world. Btw, depending on the type, you can have an app. For e.g you can see image properties including size using this app: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/picture-info/04e3caac-2a94-4488-9e8a-86c856aa637f
Auto rotation on/off not present -> Agreed with this one.
No default voice recorder -> So?
In app store most of the popular games are absent. And popular apps like WhatsApp, Wechat etc are buggy... -> This should be a complaint against respective developers. The platform is new compared to android or iOS, so it takes time.
No notification center. WhatsApp and Wechat notifications are not displaying in a timely manner.
-> Well, live tiles serve as notifications, although I agree a notification center is needed.
Working with SD card is real mess specially document files -> You have an app for that http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/kirik-search-pro/2c672a86-7b01-4119-b670-b6f0a713a1f2
Also, for each type, the respective app can show SD card option. E.g third party PDF reader.
Files recived via Bluetooth directly goes to saved pictures. No matter its a video file or image and no way to move it to video hub. -> Its a wrong statement. Images go to saved pictures. It is forbidden to save videos, since they can't be checked for copyrights. Only if the file type is same as image (.wmv), it gets saved in saved pics or in music hub (.mp4)
A PC installed with windows 7 or higher required for file transfer operations. Coz file manager missing in phone -> Vista, a seven year old OS can also show it. So can Linux, OS X etc. Again this has nothing to do with file manager.
I can't understand why people do not talk about iOS or BB10 but only bash WP on things like file manager. As a matter of fact, all OSes that gave file manager (Symbian, Palm OS, WebOS, Bada, WM, Maemo, MeeGo, BBOS) are dead except android.

The best configuration phone you can get from a reputed brand... moreyou can put ur pics to favorite - these wud b the only background pic they'll appear b it anywhere
in win XP remove SD card and connect the phone n sd card to pc seperately works fine
move vids n pics frm saved files to other (self created folders)via pc (sd card removed ) - works fine
AnonD-162319, 06 Jul 2013Really?? You got a file manager? You got auto rotation on/off ? You are able to move video fil... moreBuddy...
file manager - risky (no wonder only Android has the feature)
auto rotation - research on ui we aint need it to b vertical anyway
moving video - the pc in your home is not just for trolling it can do stuff (detailed - remove sd card - connect phone copy to pc - connect sd card move the vid)
Subway surfers, temple run 2 , UC , images in fb - we got time (WP is the fastest developing OS )
categorizing - similar to movin videos
