Nokia shows off Lumia 620 and its recording capabilities

Nokia has published a new video that shows off the Lumia 620 and how it can handle high levels of sound while recording. Much like we demonstrated with the Lumia 920 at a previous Nokia event in London, the company can pack some serious microphones inside its Windows Phones that help produce quality footage, especially when sound levels are higher than usual (concerts, etc.).

The team compares the Lumia 620 (albeit a prototype) against competitors recording the same footage. Not only can it handle the sound well with on-board microphones, but owners can also make sure the smartphone is water resistant. We positively reviewed the Lumia 620 as a cheap, but cheerful Windows Phone.

  • Way to go Nokia!
  • Iv used my 920 at a gig Wednesday 13 few days ago it can truly handle loud rock music !
  • Nokia don't force me to buy it. Stop showing me awesome features. I already have an 820.
  • +1. Have a L920 but very tempted to get this too.
  • Yep... I feel the same way... Seems like a sickness of some kind...
  • Is 620 better than 820 on audio recording? Can somebody address this?
  • That's my little boy!!! I love my Lumia 620!!!
  • I'm going to Ultra Music Festival in Miami next week, expect to see some samples from my 920 and it's HAAC mic
  • I'm taking my L920 to Ultra as well!!!! So stoked!
  • I wonder which phones they use as competitor 1 and 2
  • Lol competitor?? IPhone 5 & Samsung Galaxy S3 imo
  • Good one!!!
  • What a poor comparison video, we want competitors names and a tune that is familiar to the masses. The phone can certainly handle it. Why don't Nokia get together with a big artist and record a session using only the 920!!
  • Amazing
  • Something tells me that song sounds like shit in person. How about a decent freakin' song.
  • I recorded a muse concert with my Nokia 810 and you can hear everything perfectly
  • Nokia the best. Samsung who??
  • Samsung can suck it! Nokia number 1 people!
  • Have slowly got immune to these comparisons. Does anyone still remember the lumia video scandal with the girl on the bike. If Nokia wants to prove it, show the devices!
  • Nokia doesnt need to prove to you.. You can buy one if you want or just dont..
    What did Samsung show you, you would have been mezmerised by it i believe.
  • Where my perry oh sorry lumia 920
  • I think I saw a camera man in a van in the reflection
  • It would be better if they reported what the other 2 phones are. Unless we know what they are, we have no clue how good the comparison is.
  • As someone said earlier in the above posts, I think it's pretty obvious the only "real" competitors are Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5. Which one is which? Who knows. but either way, this low budget phone smoked them in this category.
  • Rubbish
