    does anybody know what the connector in the top right corner of the shell is? it fits into a gap on the top of the phone, but why is it there and what does it do? The 8S has something similar on the detachable bottom clip, though it is considerably smaller in size.

    Totally guessing, but perhaps it has something to do with NFC functionality?

    Wow! If the price is right, I'm sure this will get quite a nice reception on the lower end smartphone share!

    I thought it was the headphone jack? If not, its most likely an antenna.

    If not NFC related, then Antenna I would assume..

    Where does the SD Card go right below the sim card..?

    the other way around I think. right beneath the outer shell and next to the battery is the microSD slot, with the sicard slot being below that. So it won't be possible to change/insert the sim when the phone is turned on, seems like the battery has to be taken out to access the sim slot

    It's very fat, only minus here, and the speaker looks small, but the processors are very nice.

    Actually it's technique Nokia calls "dual-shot color technique".There's base color and one transparent layer of color on top that then blend together. Very interested to see how it looks live.

    It's still thinner than any of the last generation Lumias (900,800,710 and 610).

    It's absolutely ridiculous how thickness has suddenly become a key metric when talking about phones. I don't understand that one at all. Lumia 800 is 12.1mm thick and I still consider it amazingly comfortable to use and one of the most beautifully designed phones EVER. Even professionals seem to share this opinion if you consider all the design prizes and other acclaims Lumia 800 managed to win during this year.

    When did this happen? I don't remember anyone caring two bits about how thick a phone was when Lumia 800 was announced.

    I agree about the thickness. Who cares? My Arrive was 'thick' and all i've heard about my 920 is that it is thick and brick-like. I just don't see it, or don't care, or both. nonesense.

    In other news, I love this phone so much I'm going to get an unlocked green one. Love the form factor, size, color, etc.

    Noteworthy-this phone also comes in purple and orange which I saw in this video the other day.




    Thanks

    I ordered the green one and it's "en route". I should have it by the end of the week. Another thing to note is that the back is changable. They are going to make the external color shells purchasable. So, if you get sick of the green one, you could get the orange one. Or get a few different ones and change them up. Great idea. I think that alone will make it a good seller.

    Quite fat honestly, but the 'fat' made it feel very comfortable to hold in hand. The speaker grill is small, but the actual speaker is quite large and the sound quality is very good!

    Hong Kong here, it was released two weeks ago. You can now find it for HKD1900 (US$250!!)

    I don't find this phone to be fat. It's slightly thinner than an iPhone 3G/3GS, how does this qualify as "fat"? ^^

    I'm not sure why you're saying it's slightly thinner than the iPhone 3G/3GS because I have one to compare here and it's slightly thicker than the 3G/3GS, slightly but definitely noticeable. I qualify this as quite "fat" because the curvature on the side of the phone is quite sharp, combining with the width of the phone making it feel fat, unlike the iPhone 3GS for example and definitely a little thicker than the big brother Lumia 820 and 920. Despite that, as I said I feel very comfortable to hold it in hand and a single hand operation of the phone is very easy.

    See below photo and official dimensions ;) but I get your point about the steeply-curved sides
    And totally agree with your comment that it feels very comfortable to hold and operate single-handedly!

    Thickness
    Lumia 620 : 11.0 mm
    iPhone 3G : 12.3 mm
    iPhone 3GS : 12.3 mm

    Oooh... I have one iPhone 3G here and when I put it on a flat surface, side by side with the Lumia 620 I can definitely see the Lumia being slightly thicker. But yes, even if they're about the same, the Lumia still feels fat in hand compared to the iPhone 3G due to the curve.
