Expert Review of Nokia Lumia 620 Black
Nokia has not had a great time in the recent times with its Lumia series not exactly setting the market on fire. The Lumia series has struggled against the likes of other Android featuring heavyweights from HTC and Samsung and even Sony. Why the company still holds off from accepting Android is baffling although critics have their own theories.

Nokia Lumia 620 is another extension to its Lumia series and does pack a few punches in various departments. The device comes with a decent 3.8 inch screen, which gives 16 million colors support.

The memory would come in handy for those who love their music and would be able to keep a large collection of music. The music experience is further enhanced by the Dolby headphone sound enhancement technology that accompanies the headphone which can be attached to the device with the help of a 3.5mm jack. The camera, though 5 megapixels, is not the strongest suit of the device but is good enough to click pictures at a resolution of 2592 by 1936 pixels.
