Summary: Subtle is the word that could describe the new Lumia 525. The phone is perfectly sized to fit in any palm easily. A rectangle device with pointed corners and cuboid back, Lumia 525 seems decent when it comes to the design part. However it does not appear very different from its predecessor.
Summary: The company has upgraded its high-selling Lumia 520 smartphone with better memory and renamed it as Lumia 525. Other than that, you get the same 4 inch display, rear camera sans flash and same battery.
Conclusion: Lumia 525 is a better version of Lumia 520. If your usage is not much, i.e. if it is restricted to phone calls, surfing, social networks etc. then the Lumia 520 is good enough. The 520 is currently priced at under Rs. 8100. Price difference is approx Rs. 2000.
Summary: It has been almost 1 good year of the bestselling Nokia Lumia phones in the series- the Nokia Lumia 520. We all know where Nokia’s future is headed. Just as they pack their bags, Nokia is showing us the cards that were left in their sleeve.
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 525 is priced at Rs 10,399, which is roughly Rs 2,300 more than the Lumia 520. Considering nothing much has changed apart from the higher capacity RAM, it feels slightly expensive. However, the free Gameloft bundle worth Rs 2,000 somewhat makes up for this premium.
