[Review] Telus / Koodo Nokia Lumia 620

At this point it should be clear that the future of Nokia rides on the success of the Windows Phone 8 platform. The Fins need the second major WP release to work as the Lumia lineup is Nokia’s only shot at staying afloat in the long run. Samsung and Apple’s onslaught is strong – almost brutal when looking at Samsung’s numbers in the Android camp – and a previous go-to manufacturer like Nokia can only have one thing in mind: revenge.

Nokia Lumia 620

Telus / Koodo Nokia Lumia 620 Instructions Déverrouillage

Telus / Koodo Nokia Lumia 620 Instrucciones Liberar

Nokia is the first manufacturer to go all in with Windows Phone, using its mapping and multimedia strengths to help the platform gain momentum. The last quarterly results were certainly encouraging, but we’ll have to wait another three months to see if that was actually a blip or a hint of things to come.

Nokia will certainly be hoping that the global launch of the Lumia 620 will help it push more WP smartphones in the first three months of the year, despite the weaker seasonal demand, as It makes the platform more affordable than ever.

Besides, the Lumia 620 holds a less vulnerable position in the midrange market, leaving it to worry about only two rivals – the Huawei W1 and the Windows Phone 8S by HTC. Let’s have a look at the colorful Lumia 620’s strengths and weaknesses:

Key features

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support
  • Quad-band 3G with 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support
  • 3.8″ 16M-color ClearBlack LCD display with WVGA resolution
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, 720p@30fps video recording
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • Windows Phone 8 OS
  • 1.0 GHz dual-core Krait CPU, Adreno 305 GPU, 512 MB of RAM
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band
  • GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support
  • 8 GB of inbuilt storage, expandable through the microSD card slot (up to 64 GB)
  • Active noise cancellation with a dedicated mic
  • Built-in accelerometer, gyroscope and proximity sensor
  • Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
  • 1300 mAh user-replaceable battery
  • microUSB port with file transfers
  • Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP and EDR
  • NFC support
  • Full Office Mobile experience
  • Great build quality
  • Free lifetime voice-guided navigation via Nokia Drive
  • Excellent social integration
  • Xbox Live integration and Xbox management
  • Nokia Music streaming service
  • 7 GB worth of SkyDrive storage
  • Attractive price

Main disadvantages

  • WP app catalog falls short of Android and iOS
  • No FM radio
  • No system-wide file manager
  • No lockscreen shortcuts
  • Removing the back panel is testing

The Lumia 620 is priced at ‚ā¨250 off contract so it’s easy on your wallet. It offers Nokia’s full-fledged turn-by-turn navigation Drive app, Nokia Music for offline listening to radio mixes, App Highlights for app recommendations, Cinemagraph, the list goes on. And while there are alternatives in the Marketplace, few are as high quality as Nokia’s, while Drive+ beta is only available in three countries for WP devices different than Nokia’s, meaning the majority of users are on their own in regards to voice navigation.

The Lumia 620 runs on capable hardware as well. The 5 MP camera and microSD card support are a welcome bonus, but it’s the dual-core Krait chip and ClearBlack 3.8″ display that shine the most, while the colorful and almost unibody-like chassis sets it apart in a crowd.

And finally, we come to the OS itself. Windows Phone 8 is behind on the quality app count but it’s quick to catch up and doing a pretty good job of getting developers interested. It’s also a breath of fresh air for all those tired of the iOS and Android way of doing things – swipe-able homescreens, folders, notification areas, etc.

To sum it all up, the Lumia 620 has a nice set of assets to woo newcomers and gather back some of the lost momentum for Nokia – there’s only the users to convince and the HTC Windows Phone 8S and Huawei W1 to beat. We’ll endeavor to see if the Lumia has what it takes – starting with a tour of the hardware.

[Review] Videotron Canada Sony Xperia T LT30

Back when the driving seat was shared with Ericsson, Sony was a little short of delivering a real winner in the high-end market, the company’s top-range smartphones always a notch below the Galaxy S lineup and their HTC counterparts. Now on their own, Sony cannot shy away from the toughest of battles and the Sony Xperia T is ready to be thrown in the fire.

Sony Xperia T LT30

A true flagship, the Sony Xperia T comes properly powered by a Snapdragon S4 chipset, boasting a class-leading 13MP camera and a marvelously sounding 720p display. There’s no quad-core on its resume, but the Xperia T is ready to take on the best Android offerings out there.

Key features

  • Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support
  • 3G with 42.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • 4.55″ 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine; Scratch-resistant glass
  • Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 1 GB RAM, Adreno 225 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260A chipset
  • 13 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging, Multi Angle shot
  • 1080p video recording @ 30fps with continuous autofocus and stereo sound
  • 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 720p video recording
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n and DLNA
  • GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS
  • 16GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • microUSB port with MHL and USB-host support
  • Stereo Bluetooth v3.1
  • Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
  • Stereo FM radio with RDS
  • Voice dialing
  • Deep Facebook integration
  • PlayStation Certified, access to the PS Store
  • Accelerometer and proximity sensor
  • NFC connectivity

Main disadvantages

  • Display has sub-par viewing angles for a flagship
  • Slightly thicker than main rivals
  • Relatively modest battery
  • JellyBean update not available at launch
  • Poor loudspeaker performance
  • Video recording could be better

The Sony Xperia T hasn’t got the raw muscle of some of its rivals, but there’s enough to get you interested. And once you go and give it a try, the design and handling will hardly let you down. In a smartphone market as crowded as today’s, handsets with this much character are hard to come by. Now, a grateful nod is well in order to old allies and the Xperia Arc.

Setting record benchmark scores is one thing, but having an excellent chipset in a body that’s great to look at is to many a more than even tradeoff. The Sony Xperia T should not be afraid of facing its rivals in a raw processing power battle, though it’s the beauty contests it enjoys the most.

And then there’s the software enhancements, to which Sony paid more than enough attention. The Android ICS on the Xperia T comes with a great-looking UI, which Sony claims is also one of the most functional around.

[Review] Videotron Canada HTC Windows Phone 8S

The HTC 8S — also known as the Windows Phone 8S by HTC — is a fun and funky looking handset that feels speedy to use despite its modest processor and has a good all-round line up of features for its price. If you’re looking for an affordable route into Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 OS, it’s a good option.

HTC Windows Phone 8S

Good

  • Refreshingly different design
  • Slick and modern Windows Phone 8 OS
  • Dual-core processor
  • MicroSD card

Bad

  • Lacks Nokia’s extra apps
  • Screen and camera are nothing special

The HTC 8S, or Windows Phone 8S by HTC to give it its ridiculous full title, sits several steps down from HTC’s flagship¬†8X¬†Windows Phone. Whereas the 8X goes head to head with¬†Nokia’s Lumia 920, the 8S doesn’t really match up with¬†Nokia’s 820, as it’s a fair bit cheaper.

It slots into a space between low-end and mid-range smart phones. It’s certainly the most affordable route in if you want to taste Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating.

 

HTC has equipped the 8S with a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, and provides just 512MB of RAM. Now, performance is perfectly acceptable, but I did notice that things were not quite as slick as they are with the very best equipped Windows Phones. I didn’t experience juddering video or long waits for anything to happen, but there’s a definite lack of slickness to proceedings.

The screen is another area where things are acceptable rather than superb. At 4in the screen is just about large enough for watching video, and the Super LCD is bright and clear.

Conclusion

If you’re thinking of making the move to Windows Phone 8, then the 8S is certainly an affordable and stylish route into Microsoft’s OS. It feels very smooth to use and looks quite different to most other smart phones on the market.

The lack of NFC and a front facing camera may bother some, but it does have the advantage of a microSD card, which the Nokia 920 and HTC 8X lack, and overall I think it’s a good all round package for the money.

[Review] Wind LG Optimus L9 p769

Samsung T159

The good: The Samsung t159 has terrific call quality, large buttons, visual voice mail, and an affordable price.

The bad:¬†Samsung’s t159 has a small display and weak resolution; it lacks a dedicated headset jack.

The bottom line: An example of excellent call quality at a dirt-cheap price, the Samsung t159 excels at the basics, but stumbles on style.

Wind Samsung T159  Instructions Déverrouillage

Wind Samsung T159 Instrucciones Liberar

Simple flip phones like T-Mobile’s Samsung t159 remain relevant for one primary purpose: placing and taking calls. Lacking the pomp of smartphones packed to the gills, they had better at least get call quality right. Thankfully, Samsung’s $20, stripped-down t159 passes the audio test with flying colors.

Design and OS
There are flip phones with more sheen and style than the Samsung t159; in fact, almost all of them offer some graceful line or polished accent. Not so in the case of this stock phone. Its all-black form looks boring and cheap, the only interesting part is a fine-grain diamond pattern on the back panel. At least the finishes fit the $19.99 price tag. On the plus side, the t159’s slim dimensions — 3.8 inches tall by 1.9 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick — fit it easily into pockets. At 2.9 ounces, it’s also pretty light; a hair too light for my tastes.

A standard clamshell design puts a 1-inch external display out front for checking the time, and for viewing signal strength and alerts, like awaiting messages or missed calls, at a glance. Above the screen is a 1.3-megapixel camera lens with camcorder capability. Inside, the 1.8-inch screen is too small; it could easily stretch to 2 inches. Flipping open the phone instills confidence in the thick joint. The rubber stopper protecting the top of the phone isn’t attractive, but it is effective.

Beneath the screen is a large navigation array that includes two soft keys, a Send and End/Power button, and a Clear button, all surrounding the four-directional toggle with central OK button.

 

The phone’s volume rocker is on the left spine, and on the right you’ll find the camera shutter button and the shared Micro-USB slot and headset jack. That means that you’ll unfortunately need an adapter if you’re planning to listen to music or messages from the t159 through a wired headset. There’s no microSD card slot on the t159, which isn’t necessarily a drawback for this type of entry-level device. Extra storage is always nice to have, but since the hardware design doesn’t place a premium on photos or music, it’s understandable why expandable memory didn’t make the cut.

A proprietary operating system runs the t159 and unfortunately, its oversimplicity isn’t easy on the eye. I know, I know, that sounds counterintuitive, but the default menu screen is plain white and the icons are a little simplistic. The 128×160-pixel QVGA resolution is poor, and it shows in larger lettering and in the icons. You can customize elements like the wallpaper, dialing display, and brightness and backlight times, but you can’t change other graphical elements, or the font size.

 

Features
Placing and receiving calls is the phone’s principle function, and despite the unpolished interface, the address book gives you the space you need to store contact information, including multiple phone numbers, an e-mail address, a birthdate, a note, and even extra fields. You can also add a group ID, set a photo ID, and select from one of 18 ringtones. In addition, you can set the phone to silent mode, with vibration only.

Conclusion
Sometimes you just need a good, solid device for making calls, and the Samsung t159 is it. The humble flip phone doesn’t offer much in the way of style, but it gets the calling basics right, and for the right price. (It also makes you wonder why every phone doesn’t sound this good.) Although extra features like T-Mobile’s visual voice mail and voice commands give the phone more verve, Samsung stopped short of some other helpful mainstays, like a separate headset jack, a larger, higher-resolution screen, and a more nuanced OS menu.
