HTC 8S vs Lumia 620

What first began as a hum, is now rising to a steady crescendo. Windows phone, is now on everyone’s mind and lips! But the best, are also prohibitively expensive. And for most of us, the budget is also a significant contributor to how we select our gadgets. And what’s also heartening, is that we CAN have a Windows Phone, without having to spend a bomb! We’ve shortlisted these mid-range budget devices. Here’s presenting to you (*cue drumroll*) The HTC 8S htc And… The Nokia Lumia 620   Nokia 620-www.gizmophiliacs.comAnd what could be better than a comparison between the two to help you choose better! And here we go:

Tech Specs

3.8-inch 480 x 800p TFT

Speaking of specifications, there are more similarities than differences between these two babies. Both have a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and a screen res of 480 x 800. What gives the HTC 8S an upper hand over the Nokia Lumia 620 is its4” S-LCD (Corning Gorilla Glass) screen that is bigger than Nokia Lumia 620′s 3.8 inches TFT, ClearBlack display screen. It has a larger battery, 1700 mAh compared to 620’s 1300 mAh. In terms of build, it is 10.3 mm thick making it 0.7 mm slimmer than Nokia Lumia 620 whose thickness is 11 mm and is about 14 grams lighter than the 620 at 113 g. On the other hand, the Nokia Lumia 620 is bejewelled with a number of features that give it an edge over the HTC 8S. The Lumia supports NFC, has a front-facing camera, brags of 4 GB of extra internal storage at 8 GB, an SD card slot that is expandable upto 64 GB and has active noise cancellation. It comes with 5 different snap on covers in black, white, blue, pink and yellow. To top it off, because of the strong and loyal collaboration that Nokia shares with Microsoft, Lumia is packed with some gorgeous exclusive Windows Phone apps like Smart Shoot, Cinemagraph, Lenses, and many more that make the Windows Phone 8 experience all the more delightful! The HTC 8S is currently available in India at a price of INR 19,000 while the Nokia Lumia 620 is expected to be launched in the country this month at a price between INR 14,000 to 15,000.

What we recommend

After some really solid contemplation over HTC 8s vs Lumia 620, and a mild headache, I still couldn’t decide on which one I’d pick over the other. So, I went about the solution feature-wise. In my opinion, those looking for the most solid, basic smartphone, the HTC 8S is recommended for the large screen and the build quality. But the Nokia Lumia 620 wins hands down considering the bouquet of wonderful features that is offered at a sheer amazing price of Rs. 15,000.
So the bottomline is, both phones are stunners in their own way. You’ll need to see what features you’d prefer in your Windows Phone and then decide your pick.
