Nokia Lumia 625 review

 

Big screen, low price, but is it any good?

Good battery life ; 4G enabled ; MicroSD slot ; Decent music player

Low res screen ; Overpriced ; Average camera ; Only 8GB of storage

Ratings in depth Before Nokia was dissolved into Microsoft it launched some great low cost smartphones, such as the Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 620- both of which were of a quality usually reserved for higher-end handsets.

Nokia Lumia 625 review - Pocket-lint

 

The Nokia Lumia 625 brings you a large display and 4G on the cheap. But the display doesn't bring quality with it so the benefit feels slightly lost, leaving

Good value for money, Nokia gives you a great Windows Phone experience, solid design and build, it has a big display if that's what you crave, microSD slot, doesn't feel cheap

Screen is low resolution and not a great performance display, you miss out on things like compass and NFC, limited apps, larger screen size doesn't extend functionality of OS

With each Nokia Lumia device we examine we find a lot to love. Nokia's design is solid throughout much of the Lumia range, the specifications see Windows Phone 8 ticking along without complaint and the Finnish company is certainly bringing improvements...

The Lumia 625 is big, quick and has a good camera, the display isn't the best but it's now very cheap

Nokia Lumia 625 review

 

Adding to the already large family of Lumia smartphones, Nokia has introduced the budget Lumia 625. Here's our Nokia Lumia 625 review.

The Nokia Lumia 625 is a big, bright and colourful Windows Phone 8 handset. If you're looking for a 4G capable smartphone on a budget then this is a great buy. It has good build and performance but has limited internal storage and a mediocre camera.

Nokia Lumia 625 Review: In Depth

 

Nokia was one of the first companies in the Windows Phone camp to adopt 4G LTE capabilities when it launched its debut WP8 device, the Nokia Lumia 920; but making superfast mobile data functionality affordable…

Most affordable 4G phone available ; Minimalist design ; Solid battery life

Low resolution screen ; Heavy ; No NFC

Review: Nokia Lumia 625

 

he 625 is the latest of a raft of recent releases from Nokia as part of its Windows Phone ‘Lumia’ range.

Large screen, Decent camera, Processor performs well

Poor battery, Lack of HD screen, Lack of apps for Windows Phone

Expert review by: Hanleigh Daniels (techsmart.co.za)

Nokia Lumia 625

 

Nokia shoots for midrange dominance via its Lumia 625 which offers decent specs at an affordable midrange pricepoint.

LTE connectivity; good dollop of feature bang for a midrange pricetag; biggest screen of any Lumia smartphone; expandable storage; and FM Radio.

Low display pixel density; outer shell not easily removable; prone to noticeable lag whilst multitasking; and camera performance not on par with other Lumia devices.
