    I'm so excited about my new phone. It was shipped out configured for China. Resetting the phone and getting it setup is going well. I had issues with downloading updates because the clock was not set correctly. I have not moved my SIM card over yet, because my Samsung Focus has a large SIM and the 620 requires a micro.

    One thing that is cool (we'll see how it works) is that there is a Bluetooth copy contacts and settings app provided by Nokia that should move everything over.

    Feels very solid in hand and the form factor is great. On paper, it's not that much smaller than my Samsung Focus, but it feels much better in hand.

    If anyone has questions, let me know and I'll try to answer.

    Awesome looking device. Congrats. I think the 620 will be the most popular Lumia ever. Hopefully they make it available everywhere.

    I also received my 620 today. Mine is yellow and through GSM. Nation. Unfortunately while trying to remove the back cover the screen was broken. My fault totally. I am coming from a 710. I tried to contact Nokia about paying to get it fixed but no luck so I emailed GSM Nation. I didn't expect a reply till next week being Friday night but to my surprise my email was answered quickly and my phone is being returned for repair. Really happy with the support at GSM Nation. They are obviously trying to run a very good company and I recommend them highly.
    I did try to put my micro sim in from my 710 but it seems a little big. The mechanism that holds the sim seems fragile so I didn't pursue it. I like the size of the phone. Looks like it will be a good phone to throw in your pocket and just not worry about it too much. When I get it back from repair I am going to use it on TMobile as I am in a refarming area. Don't know how that will work out.
    Will be interested to read others' experiences with their new 620's.

    have a question, hope to get answer.

    Lumia 620 just released in Thailand at great price. I hope to get it to replace my aging Blackberry 9700. I wanna ask about whatsapp.

    When you received whatsapp message, does it wake up the screen on window 8? I wanna know because i dont want to keep hiting the lock/unlock button to see if i have new notification. Thank you.

    Well I was impatient. Didn't figure I would get my broken Nokia 620 back for a while so I broke down and ordered another yellow one. I have been slowly setting it up and am really liking it so far. Just been using wifi. It is really a great little phone. Nokia really does a good job and Windows 8 is great. I still don't know if I like it as well as my 710 but will figure that out once it is activated. I had this one over nighted from Negri Electronics and got it in 24 hours. Good service.

    I am one of those people who loves to swap service and phones. When my 710 had a problem with the battery charging unit I went on Ebay and bought an HTC 8X and put it on Tmobile prepay so am a little spoiled by the speed of that phone, but I can't get use to the larger size. I already love the size and feel of the 620. Once activated I will know whether I can live with the 620.

    Hi, i'd like to know some information about battery life, if 1300mah are enough to arrive until midnight from the 7:00 a.m. and your ordinary use of the phone....thanks!

    Hello. Sorry, but in Russia first owners complain about poor battery time. Only 1 day (i mean 24h of course) in standby mode. Well, it seems to be true with 1300 mah battery.

    I can easily get 24 hours with moderate use and without switching on the Battery Saver feature but I did put the brightness level to low. I reckon without using the phone at all, the battery can last for 2 days or even more... I'm finding my battery life to be as expected from a 1300mah battery pack in a dual core phone.

    Its all individual of course. But you serious think what battery 1300 mah can work long time with medium or strong usage? 620 have cool design and colors, but i think its battery weakness. Dont buy 620 right now. Wait reviews.

    Yes, of course it's all individual, but 24h without any usage was a bit strange....the target of this smartphone is to cover 24h with a medium usage....and thanks to theluminis620 i think that the target is centred,isn't it?....i haven't the phone and i'm searching info about it for a probable purchase

    Ok! If i say what you can make 20 min phone calls, send 10 sms, check email two times, 30 min wifi and 1 hour of music (all in 24 h to recharge). It will be much more better? I think NO. You just want to hear what 620 battery life is ok, and theluminis620 give it to you. But in reality its not truth. Just recall all your mobilephone experience. Maybe in past you have nokia 6300? Remeber 6300 battery? All bought it and then suffer. 620 = 6300. Cool phone with poor battery.

    I'm sorry but why are you arguing over this and expecting the phone to be alive for a week straight without charging? Sure, it's a great phone but with a small battery pack. I don't know why Nokia gave it a small battery pack but I thought most smartphones nowadays won't even last 12 hours a day, what more 24 hours even with a bigger battery pack? My friend's Lumia 800 and 900 didn't even last 24 hours, the iPhone 4S didn't even make half a day and Galaxy Note didn't even make 10 hours and those phones have a larger battery pack than the Lumia 620! Those are great, cool phones with bigger battery pack but with the same frequency of usage as just like how I use my Lumia 620, mine last further than all of my friends' phones.

    Perhaps one day there will be a battery that can make a powerful smartphone last longer, just like our old basic mobile phones but in the mean time, it's just how things goes.

    You said don't buy the Lumia 620, while I say go ahead and buy it. I have one in my hand right now and I have no problem with it at all...

    iam sure what phone which has battery life less than 24h - its not normal. So why in 620 not 1500 or 2000 mah? Please look at simple nokia 112 which has 1400 mah. Why this tiny and simplest phone with 1.8" screen have more powerfull battery?

    Well, those are the reviews that you read from Russia but here's one review from Malaysia posting this directly from my Lumia 620. I can easily get in the range of 15-24 hours with moderate usage of my phone without any problem at all and those are enough for me, considering that I went out in the morning and get back home at night with at least 20% battery left as opposed to my friends going back home with a dead phone. Yeah, we held a test so that's the result...

    Logically i don't pretend that the lumia 620 has a great battery life, i' ve only ask if he can cover a day with a normal usage (always on internet wi-fi/3g, many sms and some calls, whatsapp, fb and internet) and not an harder one...and i think that a 1300mah could give this performance without many problem.....i can't belive that if i turn on the phone and i never use it(all the time with the screen off) he can cover only 24h, olso my optimus net with a exauste battery can do better!

    I'm not sure if you actually read or understand what I said earlier..

    ... I don't know why Nokia gave it a small battery pack...
    So you should head that to Nokia instead.

    The Lumia 920 with 2000 mah battery lasted throughout the day. So if you're saying that the Nokia 112 has a 1400 mah battery, Lumia 620 should have a 2000 mah battery and what should the Lumia 920 have? 3000 mah? Even a monster Galaxy Note has a 2500 mah battery and that didn't even last 10 hours!

    So all in all, it's not a Lumia 620 problem. It's the problem with the world of smartphone nowadays...
