    But when you put the phone into some activities like as you mentioned, WhatsApp and all, it would last for around 15 hours or more depends on how frequent you use the phone. I have tested mine and the most I can get now is exactly 24 hours with mixed use condition and WiFi on all the time... Not bad, but could've been better.

    I've been using this phone for 5 days already and the battery life actually gets better and better from day to day so let's see if I can stretch it to as long as 2 days.

    the battery on this 620new nokia phones go down quickly if left in "phone only" mode ? (no wi fi gps, 3g...)
    you think the 610 lasted longer ?

    also, how long does it take approximatly to charge the phone ? about ?
    my cink dlims takes 4 hours to charge from 3% to 100... way too much i think

    thank you ! have fun

    I've never tried leaving it on phone only mode yet, but I'd expect it to last at least a day or a day and a half, perhaps even 2 days... I've never tested the Lumia 610 before though so I really have no idea if the 610 lasted even longer than the 620...

    It took me around 3 hours to charge the phone from absolute 0% to 100%. Yeah, the charging of the phone is very slow unfortunately.

    thank you foryour anwers.
    im not aware of the average time for charging the battery on a smartphone though...

    one more thing : i v read there is on this phone a new way to personnalize w8 : i v read that you can use a photo as a background for the home screen (with the tiles) and choose the tiles to be transparent ? (there is a "colour" black and white like a chess board on the screen you choose the colour of the tiles...) is it true ?

    thank you
    best regards

    I don't think you can change the Home Screen background in WP8 because I didn't see any settings for me to do so, therefore I classify this as untrue. Perhaps there is an app or some sort that hacks the system and allows you to do so.

    I also don't think there is a transparent tiles option or chess board like colour in WP8 either but by setting the screen to "High Contrast" in the 'ease of access' settings, it makes the tiles to be somewhat transparent, only white as the outline of the tiles. I provide you a picture below as an example...

    one question just popped up in my mind:

    What does the vibrate SOUND like? Is it smooth (like basically all other phones) or does it rattle as if something wasn't properly fixated or loose inside the device (like f.e. the Lumia 920)?

    would be very happy if someone could tell me that, it's one of the reasons why I would return a device (even if it's not a malfunction, I just can't stand the sound!)

    Yep, it is smooth with no rattles sound or anything. If you are experiencing so, it is a good cause for you to return your device and let them have a look.. I can definitely confirm that mine is smooth ;)

    I have yet to try opening a PDF file in the phone. Just downloaded the PDF reader app and I will try it out as soon as I can :)

    Whether it is faster than Windows Phone 7, I have absolutely no idea because I never own any Windows Phone 7 device before. But once I get the chance to test, why not?

    My pleasure ;)

    So far games are running fine but there are a couple of apps that lags, loads slowly and sometimes shuts itself off.. But it only happen at certain time. Among the affected apps are MS Facebook, Twitter and Skype. The rest are running fine.

    So, with mixed use wi-fi /3g you can arrive to use the phone from 15 to 24 hours?really not bad

    I hope to reach the same result, considering that i send a lot of sms/whatsapp (about 100)

    Hi!

    I'm sorry but I don't really get what you're trying to say. Are you referring the "other" storage as an SD card storage? No, I'm not facing any problem with my SD card at all and it reads just fine.

    By mixed use I mean is with WiFi, 3G, Facebook, Twitter, Photo shoot, Video shoot, some calls and texts, music and videos, and they all can be stretched from 15 to 24 hours. As expected from a 1300mah battery pack in a dual core phone. I didn't switch on the battery saver mode, just set the brightness to low..

    Hey CrazyWP8! Yes, I can access Nokia Music. Change your region to the US (not sure about the UK though), download the app from Store and voila! Even if you change your region back to Malaysia, you can still use the app without any problem. One thing missing from the app though is the Nokia Mix Radio. Many from Malaysia claimed they saw the Nokia Mix Radio feature in Nokia Music but when they restarted the app, it's gone. However, I since the first day I use it never actually see that thing. That's a mystery or perhaps Microsoft detected that you're actually in Malaysia and that feature is a no no for you. Haha! =P

    Well, obviously you can still listen to music from your phone storage or SD card through Nokia Music just the lack of Nokia Mix Radio feature (Nokia Mix Radio is a feature that classify your songs according to your mood). It's not really a big loss in my opinion. If you want to stream music from the internet, you need a 3rd party app for that...

    Yes, the multi touch issue is a pretty common with the Lumia 620 but I would recommend you to try out the unit first before buying it. Mine is free from this issue and been using this for 2 weeks already, nothing major problem and my multi touch still work correctly. It is very much recommended for you to buy it from the Nokia Store nearby, not from a retailer.
