yafmaverick, 23 Jan 2016I've registered here just so I could post my opinion on the phone that I just smashed at the w... moreHad a pair of Nokia Lumia 620's since 2013. Now both run WP8.1.1 (unfortunately).
Batter is small capacity but you can put a higher capacity Nokia L5J in - it fits and gives about 8% more battery time. Now mine last well over a day on a single charge.
Loads of features built into the specs including NFC which later mid price lumias lack.
Camera is OK for occasional use but poor by today's standards.
Overall, having used this as a daily workhorse phone I am satisfied with the hardware.
The biggest problem by far is the crap Windows Phone OS and total lack of interest shown by Microsoft in maintaining or supporting their phone OS.WP 8.1.1 has had no updates or fixes since 2014! For example Notifications sometimes work but mostly don't. Backup stops at 96% for most people. Apps are few for WP and those provided, like WhatsApp for example, are far better in Android or iOS.
To sum up I'd say good quality Nokia phone let down by rubbish Microsoft phone OS.
I've registered here just so I could post my opinion on the phone that I just smashed at the wall.
1. Awful battery, really wtf... I had to charge it every day whether I use it a lot or not at all...
2. Side buttons are poorly welded and they tend to fall off. It's practically impossible to weld them on permanently afterwards.
3. Touch screen is so defective that every now and then you have to lock and unlock phone so the touch screen would start working normally. Which is impossible once your lock/unlock button falls off.
The only up vote I give to this phone is it's size, because I hate having huge phones which apparently everyone makes now.
So I'll either get an iphone 4s now or Lumia 735...
bleady battery backup and cheap camera quality on less light. no other problems
Anop, 13 Nov 2015Worst phone ever. When I bought it on the first day itself the front speaker had sound problem... moreI've had some of your problems myself. I've used this (genuine!)phone for a year. It has been sent back to the factory 6 times, then I bought a Lumia 735.
My problems with the 620 were: When typing, quite often it would become impossible to type when I've used a space or an interpunction. But worse was the speakers: Sometimes the front speaker wouldnt work, sometimes the big backspeaker. When calling people would not understand me unless I was calling (I dont know the English word for it but it's like when calling from a distance of your phone). The alarm sometimes wouldnt go of as well.
Textmessages would come a lot later (up to one day) (no this was not a network issue, I tested other phones)
But with my current Lumia 735 I've encounterd these problems: Ive returned it to the factory 3 times, and the last time they replaced the phone (I think they also did this with my 620 but didnt solve any problems).
Same typing and text receiving problems as with the 620.
At first the battery was too loose, causing it to randomly restart (easy fix = paper around battery, but after replacement of phone this was fixed ). When calling often not possible to end call. And: When people call me,the phone often does not ring or give any signal that someone is calling at all, and redirecting the callers immediately to voicemail (no this is not a provider or reception issue, tested with other phones)
Still a windowsphone fan though: I've used an Iphone 6 and the iphone was definitly faster in browsing, also taking and watching videos was a lot better, but the keyboard! Windowsphone's keyboard is muuuuch better and easier (for example text editing) and waaaay more personal + ios looks like a toy
This phone is best than android and apple Os.with only 512ram,itcn play HD games like temple run 2,sub way etc.luv dis fone.im waiting for windows 10 for lumia 620.

Guys, anyone using WindowsMobile10 on Lumia 620 using Windowsinsider program?
If yes then tell me about the performance.
In which ring you have configured fast or slow?
I'm afraid of bad performance I've experienced few months back when W10 (for Insiders) was released for Lumia 620.
I can't up load pictures on Facebook and I can't share files via sharing applications

I dropped mine from almost 5 feet and not a scratch on the screen. I have a phone cover, which is the smartest thing to do as phones are fragile. It is simple logic - it is not a hammer not to break, it is a phone after all, designed for conversations, not for dropping.
Been using this phone for close to 30 months now. Still in excellent condition- as good as new.
i need help in ma phone.............fight mode did not move or release ma phone on.

It was a good phone, but the screen was excessively fragile. It broke the glass from a 2 ft drop, bad luck it reached a rock. Otherwise, for the price it was good enough.
when irestored factory reset, now its not worcking,did i formated its windows eight or, because when i swish it on it shows the word nokia en then it lights with ablue screen
Worst phone ever. When I bought it on the first day itself the front speaker had sound problem and the voice couldn't be heard clearly. Camera flash just goes blinking like an illiterate piece of sh**. Apps and games shows loading sign for 1 minutes before actually opening . Touchscreen sensitivity fades away sometimes during receiving a call and its not possible to answer it. Battery backup is the worst , need to charge atleast 3 times a day even during moderate usage on battery saving mode. Phone freezes on numerous occasions after windows 8.1 update and the only way to restore it is to remove the battery and attach it back. Most horrible phone experience I had in these 3 years of my life. Will never ever think of buying a windows lumia phone again .
