My transition to a new phone, and an upgraded operating system, could not have been better.
The Nokia Lumia 620, deemed a successor to the 610, shows that Nokia means business in the smartphone market.
Running the Windows Phone 8 OS, the 620 sports a 3.8-inch touch screen with ClearBlack LCD display.
The screen is a treat to look at and can be easily viewed from different angles. We found it very easy to view it under sunlight as well. When locked, the 620 seems to have a big screen.
It is only when you unlock the phone that you realise the screen ends to make way for three capacitive keys - the back, home and the search key.
At 127 gm, it is not the heaviest of smartphones and easily rests in your palm and slips into your pocket.
All the three major physical buttons are located on the right side of the phone.
I did take some time to get used to locating the lock key, as my Lumia 710 had it on the top.
The volume rocker and dedicated camera button on the 620 were smooth and easy to use.
The back cover is available in five vibrant colours which leave a dual colour effect. But, we had to sweat over taking the back panel off.
It is tough to remove the cover, as you need to push your nails through the gap between the screen and the cover.
