Why do you sound so bitter?
Battery is one of the things you will find more difference user by user on one same phone than any other thing. Just starting from where you live and what kind bands you region has and the coverage have a effect on your phones battery life. Not to even talk about the unique mix of settings and apps.

just got a chance to try Nokia 620 at Nokia shop yesterday. The device is well built but the wake up button is quite hard to press, maybe because it is the test device. I wonder about the "other" section in the internal memory as it has gathered up more than 1GB. Is that a big problem because i read that it kept building up and there is no way to erase. Also i checked the lumia 820 device and found only 500mb other section. It was release long before and the testing unit should be tried on so many time that cache should be more, no? Or they have already hard reset the device.

I'm not denying your logic is correct, but it's an issue with smartphones nowadays, not the Lumia 620. There may be a bigger 3rd party battery pack available for purchase as said by corsica but the phone is already dirt cheap to start with and you get everything that a smartphone has. What to complain? I have nothing to complain because I run the test myself and the results says that my phone runs just about as long as any other smartphones. So if you have issues with it and don't want to buy it then don't buy it. Get something with bigger battery pack, use it just like how I use my Lumia 620 and tell me does it get in the range of 15-24 hours? I bet you it wouldn't last... It's an issue with smartphones nowadays. I think you need a phone with 10000 mah battery pack to suit your usage.

Iphone have 1450 mah and 3.5", 900 - 1850.... and its work like 620 with 3.8" 1300 mah? Lol. About Lumia 800 we have many reviews about low life battery. Its all really Nokia miss. Believe me, i like nokia and windows, but I'm not ready to buy low-quality products and do not advise others. If Nokia wanna come back to market it must produce brilliant phones which no subject to criticism (without flaws at all) imho

I never get angry, it's just that you're not understanding things that I've said. You seem to ignore the Galaxy Note which has a monster screen and a 2500 mah battery and it only lasts 10 hours with the same frequency as I use my phone and as I said, I held a test and you ignored my statement I think.
I don't think it's all Nokia's fault. Now if it's all Nokia's fault, then explain me about the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S3 which both were obviously made by Samsung, has a bigger battery pack but last as long as my Lumia 620, in fact less with the same usage? Please explain. And tell me what smartphone can last a whole day or two? I've said it countless times already. It's a smartphone issue, across all brands and models. Not strictly to Nokia.
You're making statements based on reviews theory, while you never tested it.

First - i have great experience in mobile world. Well, i know very well how working phones with low mah battery. And i dont need buy a phone to be sure it is a bad battery.
Second - I perfectly understand you and your English. no need to talk about it constantly.
And last - about Note. Its not a phone. Its more a tablet. So we cant compare 620 and Note. Phone must work several days. What if i want leave town for a few days? I need the mobility and constant communication. 620 does not provide that. Then why do I this phone? It has a small screen, it is inconvenient for the Internet. Call it is also problematic because it does not hold a charge for long time. Why is he good for?

But if you are really into phone that could last for days and days, purely mobility and not draining much battery despite constant communication, better off get those old "black and white" phones.
Sure, the 620 doesn't provide that but what smartphone provide that? It has the same screen as a Lumia 800, slightly bigger than the iPhone 4S. So are you saying that the small screen makes it inconvenient for internet? Well, instantly you've just said the iPhone 4S is inconvenient for internet too it seems to be. Then how big will the screen be if you want to call it convenient for internet? Call is problematic because it doesn't hold charge for long time? What smartphone provides that anyway?
What this Nokia Lumia 620 is good for? Well.. It provides everything that a smartphone has in a simple, small and inexpensive package. What else do you need? Bigger battery pack? Better get off with a customized smartphone then...

We'd all like battery life to be extended that little bit longer, on any smartphone, but I think Nokia would be missing a trick if it didn't introduce wireless charging covers for the Lumia 620.
It would certainly balance out the equation, as putting the phone down on a wireless charger once a day would provide a constant top-up that alleviates battery concerns.

Nokia 112 such cheap, but work a few weeks. When note 2 or s3 work 1 day, i know why. Giant screen, internet, wifi, 3g etc. When little phone for calls with small screen but with wp8 on board work 1 day - it's disgusting. I dont understand why you think that 1 day work for smartphone its normal. Its not normal, fellow. All phones today with small screen positioned like a phones for calls with long standby time. Nokia 620 have small screen but work like a s3 with biggest ever screen. Maybe easier and nokia just deceived you? I think yes! Its not first nokia miss. Because its not marketing. Low capacity battery just stupid. 112 have 1400, 620 have 1300 just think about this, about nokia, about why.
And two last your questions
1) yes, 4s not for internet surfing
2) which smartphone can last for days without charging? Motorola RAZR MAXX (ICS) talk time 21 hour, Apple iPhone 5 - web browsing 10 hour

The sound in calling from the earpiece is very nice, loud and clear. The loudspeaker also performs nicely with no distortion. But don't blast the volume to full though (which is 10), as there will be distortions from the speaker. Same goes to music playback. The volume ranges from 0-30 for music playback. The sound is very nice from 15-25 but more than that, the sound will be distorted.
What I don't like about WP8 so far is that the volume is synchronized with music playback and the actual ringing volume. So whenever you listen to music, let's say you set the volume to 15, after listening to music, you have to put it back to 25. Otherwise, the ringing volume will stay at 15.

TheLuminis620, Are you one of those people that are going to search for third party batteries :)? I just ordered myself a 620 and was wondering if there will be any in the future(you could post it here :D).
Also, have you read anything about it even being possible to do wireless charging with a future cover? I don't remember very well, but I heard doesn't have those pin connectors to even support wireless charging with a cover..
Can't wait for my blue one :)

Dude, you're Malaysian right? I'm also Lumia620's user. You know, I'm on your side. It is not because I'm Malaysian too, but you're Lumia620 user, so you deserve talk about it more compare to people who does not have it and arguing based on other people opinions.
Btw, yeah, that is true, battery 1300mah is not enough for this phone, but with this kind of price, it deserve it!
Well, i'm a bit upset those apps are not enough especially in Malaysia. I don't understand, why we could not access Windows Store for worlwide? Why must be apportion by region?
So, somehow, the apps available for some region, some is not. We actually facing sufficient apps to be compared with Android and iOS. But, I'm looking forward for WP8. Come on!
