Nokia Lumia 620 firmware rolling out globally, gets detailed in changelog

Nokia Lumia 620

We’ve talked about the 1308 firmware for current Nokia Lumias that have been slowly hitting the market over the last few weeks. While most of the attention has gone to the Lumia 920, the Lumia 620 is also a part of that update and sure enough, we’re getting a lot of tips that it’s being pushed over-the-air as we speak.

From Germany to Malaysia to India, it seems that users are getting the firmware patch to help improve performance. While people are getting the new Storage Check to help manage their space, it looks like the Lumia 620 has a few specifics that were kindly detailed by Nokia support.

 1308 firmware Lumia 620

Those fixes include:

  • Improved touch screen functions, including corrections in multi-touch actions
  • Better voice quality with Bluetooth headsets that support echo/noise suppression
  • Enhanced camera performance with corrected exposure when flash is used in bright light conditions
  • Various improvements to system stability, performance, and usability

You can check to see if your Lumia 620 has the update waiting by going into Settings > Phone Update and Check for Updates. You will need to be over Wi-Fi to get it and it should take about 10-15 minutes to complete the process.

Nokia Lumia 620 firmware rolling out globally, gets detailed in changelog


I was thinking that too. Thought they pulled this update because of that problem. I know I'm starting to get impatient waiting on an update.

I recieve and installed the update, but the "manage storage" feature doesn't works for me. It keeps loading forever and nothing more than this... Sad. :/

Same for me, but I'll look forward to seeing the feature again after hard resetting the phone :)

Contemplating replacing my 920 with a smaller phone. Tired of lugging this thing around.

Afraid 620/720 may not get 8.1. I know all phones are upgradable but doesn't mean it will.

All devices are "promised" at least 18months software support from their launch date. Not saying it's risk free, but worth baring in mind. 
Also if you sell your 920 you could probably buy three 620s with the money so it doesn't really represent the same level of investment. I see mine as a bridge device between my Lumia 800 and my next upgrade in November.

There was some sort of promotion on Media Markt I think. My sister got it for me so I am not really sure about the details. The phone is unlocked but shows as "belonging" to Proximus. Perhaps that's why? No idea.

The Lumia 620 as far as I know should work out of the box on AT&T.  It will get 3G speeds, which is the phone's limit.  Sadly, the Lumia 620 will not work on T-Mobile except at 2G speeds right now.  Once T-Mobile finishes their network upgrades the Lumia 620 will get 3G.  I know because I have a Lumia 620 on T-Mobile USA and I only get 2G right now.

Would you recommend someone in the US, on T-Mobile, not buying a 620 as their primary phone? Because of the incomplete refarming?

Not yet in Finland. Now off to bed (920 to my fatboy) and get some sleep/charge :) Hopefully have it in the morning!

I got the update last night for my Indonesian Lumia 620 which I use on T-Mobile USA.  But I haven't had much time to check everything out yet.

This update should also fixe the garbage screen when switiching screens and weird flickers. I forced this update a while ago with Nokia Software Updater for Retail. Mine is version 1030.6407.1308.0003 though

This update should also fix the garbage screen when switching screens and weird flickers. I forced this update a while ago with Nokia Software Updater for Retail. Mine is version 1030.6407.1308.0003 though

What about the global 920 firmware update that can have an option to fix the storage issue , cam improvement and controlling the displays colors 

I think its posible, because before download there is warning about possible cost if you update without wifi conection, just updated mine in Croatia, unlocked 620 bought in USA

No. It must be in Wi-Fi connection to download. Check again the article, and let me know if I'm wrong ;)

Got the update over wifi in Germany. Seem to fix a lot of camera issues. Like correct exposure and shutter speeds over 1sec in proshot. As far as I can tell: no connection issues... for now.

Check your phone firmware via Settings > Phone Updates... It maybe has the latest version installed (it should show 1250.0xxx as the initial release version for Lx20 devices).

thanks for reply but my firmware strarts with 1232.5951.1249.1001 .
 via Settings > Phone Updates it shows me is up to date. i can't understand what can be the problem?!

Just updated my Telus 620 in Canada.  Storage check works, but it still doesn't seem to vanquish the "other" section.  I thought it would allow us to clear that Other crap out!

how long does it take to complete the update? I know it says it on the post, but mine has been doing it for more than 30mins and im a lil worried now lol

Just updated my 620, and as i can see, my camera did a great outdoor capture in bright light condition, and the speaker seems a bit louder though it is still 19/30. Another thing, my storage increased, my Other is decreased a bit but now I can see what inside the internal storage actually. Havent tested the multitouch issue on my screen after update, cause I didn't have that issue before.

It looka like the multitouch issue on L620 has been solved... Mine using updated L620 here, but the storage check is the new issue here.

I just did the firmware update on my phone and there is no storage check option in settings menu. I did a fresh reset on the phone, hoping this option will appear but still no joy. I am the only one with this problem? What could be the culprit here?

Day two of 820 ownership on o2 UK, can't install modern combat 4.  Insufficient space.  My windows 7 htc gave me less issues.

I Download the new update from the PHONE UPDATE option after downloading an update, my phone restarted and my phone was showing gear box icon after 2 hours later it was showing bad smile and nothing is happening.
i restart it many times but the same thing is happening it is starting with nokia logo, gear icon , and in 6 second later it's showing again bad smile ! :(
plzzzz tell me some solution

Finally my Phone is Working, after having a problem of Update, i visit nokia care center !! in 45Min. they update firmware ! ! 
Now Everything is Ok ! on my Lumia 620
