Nokia Lumia, the first thought that strikes us after hearing this name takes us to the impression of an effort of sustaining in the smartphone market by the legacy in mobile handset manufacturing, undoubtedly Nokia. The Finnish giant has now launched its another set of expectation in Indian markets, which was though expected from quite a long time, the Nokia Lumia 625. The Nokia Lumia 625, if anyone has clearly followed the naming conventions of Nokia, the Lumia 625 is a mid range budget mobile phone.
So, what’s hot with the Nokia Lumia 625 these days
Yes, its hot, because it is laid open to a new population of 1 billion mark. The Nokia Lumia 625 has been launched in India recently, and hence all the buzzwords go. Being a medium budget phone, the Nokia Lumia 625 has definitely attracted many eyes towards it. Therefore, today at Techlobe, we’re going to discuss this phone in a little detail.
Nokia has been following a different path rather than choosing android to tie up with, and instead picked Microsoft for their flagship mobile phone operating system, the Windows Phone, in its latest avatar, the Windows Phone 8.
Nokia Lumia 625: The Positive Side
The first and foremost point that attract almost anyone towards this phone is the price at which this phone has been launched in India. The Nokia Lumia 625 Price is set within 20,000. Being launched at a price of 19,499, you can Check Latest Price of Nokia Lumia 625 or buy it clicking here. Also, to keep in mind this is the first Nokia 4G phone to be launched at this price tag in India.
Next point which makes the Nokia Lumia 625 a worth buy product is presence of a large, very large, infact largest in a Lumia screen with display size of 4.7 inches super sensitive IPS Display. The super sensitive display makes a user able to operate the touchscreen with nails or with even the gloves on. Scratch protection Corning Gorilla Glass 2 adds to the durability of the all screen phone.
The camera provided in the Nokia Lumia 625 is a 5 megapixel rear camera with an LED flash, and a 0.3 Megapixel secondary front camera. The Nokia Lumia also inherits the smart camera app from the big brother, the Lumia 1020. The camera, although being a 5 megapixel shoots efficiently in low lights and is capable of shooting full HD videos at 30fps frame rate.
The phone houses a 1.2 GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, and a 512 MB RAM, with internal storage of 8 GB and expandable up to 64 GB using an external SD Card. The cheesy features present are Bluetooth v4.0, 7GB or free cloud space on SkyDrive, and lots more.

The phone is packed with a good powerhouse and the battery will provide a god backup. Battery details of the Nokia Lumia 625 are as follows:
- Battery Capacity: 2000 MAh
- Talk time GSM: up to 23.9 hours
- Maximum talk time (3G): up to 15.2 hours

Nokia Lumia 625: The Flipside
The Nokia Lumia is a feature packed phone, but since every coin has two phases, same with its flipside. To begin with, the first thing you find unattractive about the phone is the screen resolution. With a screen size of 4.7 inches, a display resolution of 800 x 480 falls short in producing the expected vibrancy, and gives a less dense pixel density of 201ppi.
Another factor that strikes is to cope up with a 1.2 gigs processor and such a large screen, the 512 MB RAM might fall on its edges. Though Windows Phone 8 uses RAM far more efficiently than Android rivals, yet you might expect lags in the long run.
I personally have been a fan of Windows Phone 8 as an operating system for their great social integration, and as of now the only mobile operating system to offer full fledged MS Office Suite in a mobile phone, yet for an app-freak, the phone runs short on apps due to limited availability of apps in the windows ecosystem. Doesn’t matter to me much, yet if you are an Instagram or vine addict, you do have to consider other options than Windows Phone 8.
Nokia Lumia 625: Overall Verdict
Keeping in mind the price bracket the Nokia Lumia 625 has been launched in, and the features the phone has been launched, it is a good buy if you like to have something different apart from the common handsets. Also, being one of the first 4G phones, you can boast among your friends. On the other hand, the screen resolution at this price tag is considerably low, which adds a significant negative marking on the overall rating. I personally would rate it 7 on a scale of 1-10.
