Finnish handset maker Nokia had launched the much awaited flagship Lumia 620 smartphone only a few weeks ago into the Indian market.

Nokia's Lumia 620 falls in the bracket of mid-range smartphones which offer descent high-end features at an affordable price. Sony's Xperia P is one such competitor which packs similar features but comes with an expensive price-tag.

Here is a brief description of specifications of Nokia Lumia 620 and Sony Xperia P:


Lumia 620 sports a 3.8-inch TFT screen with 800x480p resolution display, whereas Xperia P boasts a bigger 4.0-inch TFT display with 960x540p resolutions.


In terms of power, Lumia 620 packs a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor, while Sony Xperia P too packs a dual-core processor.


Nokia's Lumia 620 sports a 5.0-megapixel main camera with 720p HD video-recording and VGA front camera. Sony's smartphone packs an impressive 8.0-megapixel main camera with LED flash support and full HD video recording. It also comes with 8X digital zoom and a 0.3-megapixel VGA camera.

Operating System:

Like any other android smartphone, Sony Xperia P scores some points over Windows Phone 8 based Lumia 620. The Sony handset runs on Google Android mobile OS version Ginger bread with options of upgrading to the v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, which is currently the most widely used operating system version in the market. The Android ecosystem holds a large collection of more than 700,000 apps, only second to Apple's app collection.

Lumia 620 buyers will have limited options with the Windows Phone 8 OS, as the new OS was released only a few months ago in the market and only holds a little over 150,000 plus apps.  Even popular photo app Instagram is yet to debut in the Windows app store.


Sony Xperia comes with 16GB storage capacity with no options of memory expansion and packs a 1GB RAM. The Nokia smartphone comes with 8GB internal memory capable of expanding up to 64 GB via micro-SD card. But the device comes with 512 RAM; which means Lumia 620 buyers will not be able to play popular mobile game 'Temple Run' which requires 1GB RAM.


Nokia Lumia 620 is currently priced ₹14,499, whereas Sony Xperia P holds a price-tag of ₹20,990, almost a ₹6,500 price difference between the two devices. In a price-sensitive market like India, this might play a crucial part in the minds of middle-class buyers who form a big chunk of the sub-continent's population.

With a sub-₹15,000 price-tag and peppy dual-colour back panel options, Lumia 620 is expected to be a hit among Indian youths.
