Nokia Lumia 620

Nokia set out to make an affordable phone for the global masses that doesn't strip out all the features. The Nokia Lumia 620 has a dual-core processor, an HD video camera, NFC, and Windows Phone 8's operating system. It'll cost just $249.

Good luck finding the SIM card slot. First you have to peel the back cover, then reach beneath the microSD card slot for the SIM door.

To remove the exoskeleton and get to the phone's guts, push against the camera module with your thumb while pulling the case back from the face.

Buttons

Buttons control the camera shutter, volume, and power/lock screen. Some respond slower than I'd like.
