Nokia Lumia 620, 820 and 920 Experience at Abenson Shangri-La

by - Thursday, February 21, 2013

I’ve always been loyal to the Nokia brand. Then and now, it’s a phone brand that’s always user-friendly. Newbie at using phone or too old and just learning to text; you can never go wrong with a Nokia phone. There’s always a Nokia phone perfect for your needs. 


Ever since, we always have a Nokia phone in the family. In fact, it’s the only brand that my husband wants to use. You can’t tempt him with any high-end Android phone. And he’s very interested in getting a Lumia phone; given the chance and the money. :D


Now, why I am telling you all these things is because I am going to discuss the three new Nokia Lumia models in this blog post. So, I went to Abenson’s Shangri-La this afternoon to experience the newest addition to the Lumia lineup of phones. Special thanks to their sales staff, Deanne. She was just amazing; so friendly and really knows the stuff she was talking about. So back to the phones; these are the Nokia Lumia 620, Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920.

I think all three phones are great and I would love to get any of them. :D

Nokia Lumia 920
All three Lumia models run on Windows 8 platform but have slightly different features.And they differ in weight. Hey, I tried weighing them on my hand and I think I will get tired of texting easily using the 920 model. It weighs 185 grams as compared to the 620 which only weighs 127g and the 820 at 160g.

I was actually amazed at the display features of all 3 models. But of course, who can say no to the Lumia 920 with its PureMotion HD+ 4.5 inches display? Looks soooo cool! You won’t get deprived with the 820 and 620 though. Both have ample display at 4.3 inches AMOLED ClearBlack display for the 820 and LCD ClearBlack 3.8 inches for the 620. 

And of course, it would be a pity to not try the cameras of the phones. After all, most of us are now looking for a mobile phone that can also double as a digicam substitute, right? So, this Lumia 620 features a 5MP auto-focus camera while the 920 offers 8.7MP and the 820 boasts of 8MP camera; cameras for both 920 and 820 are Dual LED.

Both the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 offers 1.5 GHz dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor while the 620 has 1 GHz dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor. The latter, though, have a different processor model from the 820 and 920. But, I won’t complain.  I tested all three and they are all very responsive and fast.

Crazy about taking pictures, especially group shots? Both the Nokia Lumia 820 and 620 offer a Smart Shoot feature which takes a series of snaps to get the perfect group photo. This is really nice when you want to avoid someone in your group shots to have eyes closed or a frown on his/her face. While the Nokia Lumia 920 has PureView technology and Carl Zeiss lens that helps capture blur-free photos and videos.

Now, if you love to stroll and easily gets lost, any of the 3 phones would be perfect. They all have City Lens feature; you just have to tap the screen and get reviews, directions and links to where you are going such as restaurants.

For moms like me, there is this one awesome features you'll love. It's called the Kid's Corner. Simply put, it works like a child lock on your television sets. You can set what games your kids will be able to play. Now, there's no need to worry about disappearing apps and files on your phone. 

Are you the type of person who frequently changes the housing or case of your phone just to change its looks? No need for that. With these Lumia phones, you can outright choose the color that you like; and you get to pick 2 colors. Yay. Work the phone in layers, with matte or gloss finish.  For the Nokia 620, your color options include Black, Cyan, Lime Green, Magenta, Orange, and White. The Nokia Lumia 920 is available with color options such as Yellow, Red, White, Grey and Black. Color options, meanwhile, for the Lumia 820 includes Red, Yellow, White, Cyan, Purple, Grey and Black.


On the go and needs to finish a document? The Nokia Lumia 620, 820 and 920 all include Microsoft Office and a sync feature. You can just sync your Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint from your desktop to your phone and vice versa. Sync via SkyDrive to keep important files at your fingertips.

And best of all, you can stream music for FREE! Yes, free! Isn’t that amazing? 

So, you want to get your own Nokia Lumia 620? I suggest you check out an Abenson store near you. Why? Because it’s one of the biggest appliance store in the country and they showcase everything from air conditioning units to small gadgets like phones and MP3 players. They have the best deals in town and the coolest freebies! Imagine, you can pay for as low as Php500 for the gadget that you may be interested in. You can pay in cash or avail of their 0% installment schemes – which is available for all major credit cards. 


I’ve bought several home appliances from Abenson; both back when we were still living in the province and now that we’re here in Manila. But, I’ve never tried buying a gadget from them. My officemate have, though. He bought an iPod Touch from them. After a year, the Touch encountered problem but it was still under warranty so they replaced it. Replaced it! How cool is that! 

You can try visiting them online at Abenson.Com.Ph if you're too busy to go to their stores. They offer Cash On Delivery and Free Delivery! I'm sure you'll find a store within your vicinity though. They have over 75 stores nationwide; 4 branches in Makati alone.You can also check their Facebook page for timely updates. 

Not yet keen on buying? No worries. You can always just drop by any of their stores and browse for the items that you are interested in. I always do that. Hehe. It’s just good to go to them because the staffs are all very helpful and friendly. They will give you the best deals and help you choose the right items for your needs.

  1. Three months back I made a major mistake of exchanging my Sony Xperia Neo V for Nokia 610. And I was never so frustrated before. Never imagined any Nokia phone to be so underpowerred, low on performance. The 610 has nothing in its favour except only the editing of office documents. If 620 also happens to be in the same league, think twice before going for it. Android based phones are much more reliable, sturdy and offer variety.

  2. Hi Rahul!

    Thanks for the tip. I haven't tried Nokia's latest phone models yet such as the ones in their Lumia lineup. However, with my many years of experience using their phones, I hadn't experienced too much griefs unlike with Android phones. But, yeah, I have to give it to Android phones for their variety.

    :)
