Nokia Lumia 620 hands-on: Camera and Video samples

nokia-lumia-620-video-testThe Nokia Lumia 620 is the latest addition to the Windows Phone 8 family and is the entry-level member of the Nokia Lumia range. Budget priced it may be but that doesn’t stop it from having some hidden talents. Here we show off a few photo and video samples of the Nokia Lumia 620 in action.

The Nokia Lumia 620 comes with a 5-Megapixel camera that is capable of handling 720p video capture at up to 30 fps (frames per second). This means you get a great experience on what is considered an entry-level smartphone. Obviously, you won’t find the optical image stabilisation found in the high-end Nokia Lumia 920 but video is pretty impressive for for is a £150 cameraphone.

After hitting the sea life aquarium, we hit the arcades. Once again, all the objects are behind glass but there is natural sunlight to give you a comparison between the darker light of the fish tanks.
