Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it.

 

 The Samsung Galaxy Win is yet another phone by the Samsung Corporation. Samsung seems to want to flood the market with its own products. In fact, it seems that Samsung’s biggest competitor will soon be Samsung itself. This seems even more likely as despite numerous phones in the market, Samsung also releases variants of those phones. The Samsung Galaxy Win comes in two variants: Single-SIM and Dual-SIM. The Samsung Galaxy Win is also sold as Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro in certain markets.

The phone is a quad-core smartphone aimed at the budget segment.  Samsung Galaxy Win or Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) which is powered by 1.2GHz Quad core Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon 200 Processor and 1 GB of RAM.

The user interface is that usual Samsung TouchWiz, however it has the additional Motion UI. The Motion UI allows user to control certain features on the phone by moving the phone a certain way. An example would be flipping the phone to face downward will mute the incoming call. The device also has an Easy Mode that helps the user access key functions such as favorite contacts, apps, dialer, etc on the homescreen with ease.

The device features a 4.7 inch WVGA TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It also has a 5 Mega pixel rear-facing camera with LED Flash and auto focus, as well as a VGA front facing camera. The phone also has additional camera features such as Continuous Shot, Best Photo, Color Effect and Scene Mode.

Nokia, the Finnish multinational communications and information technology corporation, is known for it highly durable mobile phones. However, with the increasing onset of smartphones, the sales of Nokia’s simple but durable phones started to drop. To offset this trend, Nokia tied up with Microsoft to launch a series of smartphones based on Microsoft’s Windows. This series of phones branded as Nokia Lumia run on Microsoft Windows Mobile 8.

One of the newest smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 620. Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it. The phone is a decent enough piece of merchandise, especially considering its price. It features a 3.8-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual-core 1 GHz Krait and a 512 MB RAM. It has an 8 GB internal storage capacity and an external storage expandable up to 64 GB.

The Nokia Lumia 620 has a 5 MP camera with auto focus and LED flash, as well as a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The phone like most of the phones under the Lumia brand is available in a variety of bright colors, such as lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, and the usually white and black. In fact, the phone comes with back panels in these colors allowing the user to change the phone’s color every few days.

However, the phone has been criticized as looking a bit plasticky and cheap. The phone is also a bit on the heavier side. Another issue with the phone, in fact all the Windows phones, is that it comes with the Internet Explorer browser built-in, which can be quite lagging at times, and the phones do not support any other browsers. Furthermore, the collection of apps available on Windows is quite limited, especially as compared to the apps available for Android and Apple.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the Samsung website, the Nokia website, techradar.com, and GSMArena.com.
