Nokia Lumia 620, 820 and 920 in the flesh

/ / in / / Edit
And so you've probably heard, Nokia outs three brand new Lumia installments and yesterday i got the chance to finally see them right in the flesh!



Thanks to Abenson (Glorietta) for putting the actual phones out on display for curious customers like me. So right under the cut, you'll be seeing and reading my unadulterated first impressions of the Lumia 620, 820 and 920...

See what rocks and sucks about these crazy lumias below!

Lumia 620

Nokia Lumia 620
Rocks:
- Windows Phone 8 
- good screen resolution at 480x800 on a 3.8" TFT capacitive touchscreen featuring Nokia's trademark ClearBlack display
- 5mp autofocus camera with LED flash
- 1GHZ Krait dual-core running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. consider those heavy apps served!
- double shot of colors! the shell features two colors each, one at the outer layer and a different color for the inside layer. :) and you can change them btw, you just have to buy different shells. >:D

Sucks:
- running over the specs i'd say the only let down of this phone is the battery capacity, which is a lo Li-ion 1300 mAH block. 

Price:
Abenson Mobile offers the Lumia 620 for a very affordable price of Php 12,695.00 apiece. On credit, you can pay it for only Php 1,057.90 / month with 0% interested. how awesome is that?

Lumia 820


Rocks:
- 4.3" AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with an estimated 217ppi pxel density. Pretty good display i must say for those who are not very keen on graphics quality. Also features ClearBlack display! 
- features a camera using Carl Zeiss optics with an 8mp autofocus rear cam with dual-LED flash. expect picture quality to be crisp and sharp.
- runs on Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon with dual-core 1.5GHz Krait CPU. beat thaaaat!
- WIRELESS CHARGING. this is probably one of its coolest features because it's new and innovative.. though it's not exactly my favorite cos i'd rather see myself tucking in wires than carrying a charging plate... hmm... and for the record... the wireless charging stuff doesn't come with the package, you have to buy it separately. :)

Sucks:
- same thing! for a phone with this specs, i wonder how they won't expect users to be extremely hands-on an abusive with it. 1650mAH are you kidding me? >:'(

Price:
Abenson Mobile offers the Lumia 820 for Php 20,990.00
And for credit buyers out there, you can get your hands on with this wonder for only Php 1,749,16/mo. at 0% interest. Crazy huh?

Lumia 920



Rocks:
- great color diplay! IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen. 4.5" screen size with 768x1280 pixels resolution (~332 ppi).
- PureMotion HD+ and ClearBlack display
- 8mp autofocus Carl Zeiss optics powered lens with dual-LED flash! same same, expect great shoots!
- and of course, HD recording. 1080p @ 30fps, folks!
- Dolby headphone and sound enhancement for the music buffs!
- Smooth flowing OS, overall. thanks to Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon and 1.5ghz krait dual-core CPU.

Sucks:
- Large and pretty bulky
- For something this big, i don't think 2000mAH will suffice. Add to the fact that it's non-removeable, this might be something consumers will take into big consideration.

Price:
- No SRP released yet for the Philippines as the unit won't be out until April, then again that's just a few days away from now so who cares about the wait? I'm judging this will be around 30k. Heavy, ayt? But I'm pretty sure our good friends from Abenson will come up with a really tempting deal to make that price weight less on our pockets.
