Nokia Lumia 620 is Windows Phone 8’s new best hope

If you're talking about the Microsoft mobile operating system Windows Phone 8 and you want to think about how it might survive the next few years, you'd better be thinking about how to get the newest version of the OS into customers hands for free - and Nokia's doing just that.

And this "Every1" case is a doozy, too.

We'll be testing its camera against the iPhone 5 as well rather soon - and whatever other devices you request as well - but first it's time to battle one of the biggest competitors Nokia has in the field. The Samsung Galaxy S III wasn't originally pushed specifically on its photo-taking abilities nearly so much as the Lumia 920 has been, so pay close attention to how they compare in some real-world tests.
