  1. Mahal… :)

    • Second.

    • I third. At kung babasahin ang announcement take not SRP daw nila yun but pricing and availability should vary daw depending on store. Meaning, may malaking possibility na magtaas ng presyo kung bibili ka na.

    • Nakakaasar lang pag may nagrereklamo na mahal siya pero hindi naman masabi kung bakit siya namamahalan. Kung sa tingin niyo na mahal, explain niyo rin kung bakit. Compare and contrast din para may kwenta mga reklamo niyo, hindi puro sabat lang.

  2. nice ah, ang mura ng 620, yet you get something more than what the price is worth

  3. Nokia/MS needs to be more competitive with their pricing. Feeling nila sikat na sikat ang Windows 8. =(

    • Eh? Ano’ng mahal doon? Ang mura-mura kaya nila on those prices. These are smartphones, not feature phones.

    • palibhasa kasi rich kid ‘tong si Lorenz e.

    • but, you get what you pay for!

  4. Best Windows Phone

    Yung 620 na, kahit mas mahal compared to other countries. you get all the features of a full fledged windows phone 8 naman.

    • Except that some apps and games won’t run on 512MB RAM WP8s.

  5. went to Nokia MOA earlier… I like yung build ng 820 at 620… malaki din pala yung screen ng 820… I really really want to get one kaso priorities muna hehehe… as expected buttery smooth yung OS hehehe

  6. Nokia releases Lumia 820, 620 in the Philippines. So what now?

  7. Nokia releases Lumia 820, 620 in the Philippines. So what now?.

  8. Nakakainis yung mga postpaid plan na nagooffer ng Nokia Lumia 800 na nagsasasabing latest daw yun. Haha.

  9. Lumia 620 received raving reviews from engadget, cnet, etc. Just google it.

    They said that is the best entry-level smartphone regardless of OS.

  10. any idea kaninong device ang mapunta sa smart network?

  11. wow. that prize is crazy with that specs :/

  12. WOW! 820’s cheap! The last price of 920 I saw is 29k. That’s 10k more expensive than 820.

  13. jcnjcjcnjc

    when kaya ang 920?

    • I’m waiting for the 920 too. Whoever carries it under a good data plan will be my next service provider. :)

      It’s sad that nokia has supply issues and they could not move units as fast as before.

  14. kikomancher

    I got here my Lumia 620 899AED. Ok sya. Nakakatuwa ung live bars mejo di ko lang gusto ung camera at konti lang apps.

  15. Sir Yuga,

    confirm po yun na LTE Capable tong phone?

    salamat :D

  16. 2013 na yet andito pa rin yung mga panay reklamo. Ganito lang yan, kung namamahalan kayo sa price, tumahimik na lang kayo. Wala naman pala kayong pambili. Marami pa naman dyang mas mura. Kahit anong gawin nyo, hindi luluhod ang Nokia sa harap nyo at ibababa ang presyo sa gusto nyo. Puro na lang reklamo.

    • may point ka kahit maangas ang dating. :) i also think the prices stated are just ok. yung mga bagong labas ng HTC at Samsung na ganyan din ang specs medyo mas mataas pa nga dyan ang presyo. Nokia naman yan and it has proven a lot when it comes to durability and customer support.

    • We are just stating a fact na mahal tlga sya. This is not the 90’s anymore na they can dectate the prices they want. They need to be competetive. In our, opinion those prices are pretty high compared with other brands phone. And my question is, did they fix na the bugs of windows 8? Nde na ba nag auto shutdown yan? Good luck with that!

    • Stating the fact na mahal siya? LOL, fact daw. That is subjective to the reader/buyer. When a buyer decides to purchase something, he decides that the phone is worth more than his money hence the trade.

      Most reviews would actually rave about how cheap the 620 is knowing that you get so much for so little. Sa ganyang presyo wala ka namang makukuhang bnew na iPhone. Pwede Android but that’s up to the buyer.

    • pipitsugin

      malamang mga nag rereklamo walang sense of luxury kaya puro reklamo nalang sa price.

      sabi nga nila parang kotse din, parehong tumatakbo pero magkakaiba ng presyo, kung kaya mo ng ferrari e di go pero kung pedicab lang kaya mong transpo e pasensya hanggang pedicab lang kaya mo e o kaya maglakad ka nalang ng walang humpay, gets nyo ba logic mga reklamadorang echoserang naggers? chozzz

      cheers! :)

    • To Ryan: “In our, opinion those prices are pretty high compared with other brands phone.”

      At anong “other bands” naman yung tinutukoy mo? Cherry Mobile? Don’t make me laugh.

      So Apple lang ang may karapatang mag-highway robbery sa iPhone nila, ganun? Di hamak naman na mas mura ang nga Lumia na yan kesa sa Samsung o Apple. Kung namamahalan kayo, wag kayong bumili. Simple lang.

  17. PointBlank

    Sa mga bumili ng Windows 8 Phone at nagrereklamo na unti ang apps at nagregret na bumili, SANA nag scout muna kayo, nagresearch bago niyo binili. Keysa naririnig namin na ang unti ng apps, ang mahal, etc.

    Nakakarindi din mga buyers na nagra-rant na, “Bakit di ko malaro Temple Run?” (Galit yun) Tapos makikita mo bumili siya ng Android phone na 800Mhz-1Ghz na 512 ang RAM. WTF???

    • eh paano naman di magkakapoot yon… an old school 3GS has only 600Mhz CPU and 256MB RAM but Temple Run 1 & 2 works (although bumabagal ng konti yung phone pag sa 2).

    • Windows Phone 8 po! Hindi po windows 8, desktop OS po iyan

  18. too late…

  19. parangano

    hmmm… i think the price is okay, given that it’s a windows 8 phone. and it’s nokia. way better than getting the windows 7 line that they are still trying to do a hard sell over here. if i got money, i’ll probably get the 620 to try it out. e kaso wala. hahahahahalife. :(

  20. No instagram no buy.

    The Nokia 620 here in Italy cost 260€ (Php34100@55Php to 1€). That’s a very high difference in price compare here and the Phils and it’s not available here. I saw the price on line but it’s not yet available. That’s a very modest price for a smartphone like Nokia620.I might buy one when it arrives here.

  22. Alfredo Aquino

    I stand corrected, you’re right I miscalculated, the price should be PHp14,300 not Php34,100. Thank you.

  23. Sir Jacko

    I’m a galaxy note 2 and lumia 620 user. Been with samsung’s galaxy S series since the first one and upgraded to note late last year. I’m a die hard android user BUT there is just something about windows phone 8 that makes it look and feel more polished than android/touchwiz. It just feels more.. “elegant” than the multi-layered apps/icons of android (yes, and widgets). I don’t know but I’m starting to like my 620 more than my note 2.. i just need more apps.. hmm but I need my stylus, too.. hmm..

  24. i have note 1 and 2…mabilis ang note 1 sa ginger bread nung na update ko sa ice cream sandwich bumagal na…these are android phones, and the problem with android are as follows: need higher core(procesor) and higher ram (at least 1 gb) to run the device smothly, 2.yung mga settings kung saan – saan, hindi ko matandaan. kung may gusto kang palitan na settings, you have to search for it again and 3 unstable yung os that why other games are also unstable, i think no customer support because it is an open sourcem os…..iphone is classy, mabbilis maski dual core lang, maganda ang settings, malinaw at matibay kaso napaka z10 a big nonononono way!!! nokia windows phone parang gusto kung i try pag may extrang pera parang maganda sa mata ang nokia, da best nokia noon, sana hanggang ngayon…
