Summary: Itâ€™s hard to recommend the Lumia 625 especially since you have a great device such as the Lumia 720 available at a cheaper price. If you want to purchase a device under 20k running the Windows Phone OS, the Lumia 720 is a better package deal. If a large screen device is what you want, you have smartphones such as the Canvas Doodle 2, Xolo Q1000S and more at your disposal. Pick up the Lumia 625 if youâ€™re specifically looking for a large-screened WP smartphone.
Pros: Good Build, Windows Phone exudes simplicity, class, Suite of preloaded movies, Preloaded Nokia apps
Cons: Camera could have been better, Washed out low-resolution display, Display is very reflective in sunlight, App ecosystem still small when compared to iOS and Android
Summary: While the MRP of the Lumia 625 is Rs 19, 999, you can find it online at varying price points depending on the colour you pick. We feel this is an expensive price for the phone especially since all you're getting is a larger screen, without any increase in resolution and important features which have been sacrificed.
Excerpt: While it may not compare to the likes of a Samsung Galaxy Mega , the 4.7-inch Lumia 625 world phone is still one of the larger-screened phones in Nokia’s lineup. It’s too bad all that real estate only showcases the phone’s shortcomings. First problem? This WVGA screen has a resolution of 800 x 480. Stretched across 4.7-inches, that translates to a dismal 201 ppi (pixels per inch). For comparison, the Galaxy S4 has a density of 441 ppi.
Conclusion: The Nokia Lumia 625 comes with a fairly large 4.7” display and 4G LTE on a budget, but there are a few things that hold it down. We like the smooth performance and the fun colors, but the low-res display seems out of place on today’s market. Moreover, the average camera and limiting 512MB of RAM are all considerable downsides. The real question however is can the Windows Phone powered Lumia 625 survive in today'sfiercely competitive market?
Pros: Largest display in a Nokia Lumia phone so far, Mostly smooth performance
Cons: Feels overpriced compared to similar Android devices, Screen lacks sharpness, hard to read outdoors, Average camera
Conclusion: With the Nokia Lumia 625 there’s now an affordable option for those who want snappy data speeds to complement that snappy Windows Phone 8 user experience. The trade-off in order to accommodate that 4G radio comes in the form of a lacklustre display and meagre amounts of RAM, but for around £200, there aren’t many rivals with the same distinctive skill set.
Pros: Most affordable 4G phone available, Minimalist design, Solid battery life
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 625 is a decent Windows Phone designed to offer budget buyers big screen usability and 4G speeds. However, with few of the custom Nokia innovations that made other Lumia devices great, it's unlikely to tempt new users to the Windows Phone platform.
Pros: Big screen is pleasant to type on, reasonable battery, interchangable covers
Cons: Low resolution screen, low memory, restricted selection of Nokia apps The slightly cheap feeling isn't helped by the 625's 159g weight, which makes it feel slightly dense compared to the 128g of the similarly sized Lumia 720.
Summary: Big screen, low price, but is it any good?
Pros: Good battery life, 4G enabled, MicroSD slot, Decent music player, The Nokia Lumia 625 has quite good battery life and 4G support. Those are probably the two biggest things going for it. It also has a good music player and handles contacts and social network integration superbly - but then so do all Windows Phone 8 handsets. It's a fairly snappy performer despite having quite low specs and the inclusion of a microSD card slot is appreciated, but it's kind of necessary ...
Cons: Low res screen, Overpriced, Average camera, Only 8GB of storage, We've been debating whether the screen size is a good or a bad thing, but given the low resolution we're inclined to say that for most people a smaller screen would be preferable. The fact that the large screen adds weight, bulk and presumably price to the phone isn't ideal either. The camera isn't great and the dial pad could use some work, but really the screen coupled with the price tag are the main i...
Excerpt: The Lumia 625 joins Nokia's mid-range handset market alongside the Lumia 520 and Lumia 620 . Although Nokia markets the 620 as a budget phone, the device sports a couple impressive features. First up is the display. At 4.7 inches, it has one of the largest screens available in the Nokia lineup. Due to the larger screen real-estate reviewers found it easier to navigate around the Windows menus and using the onscreen keyboard.
Pros: Large display offers good Windows 8 OS experience, Fast 4G LTE connection, Decent 5 megapixel camera
Cons: Poor pixel density and screen resolution, Absence of ClearBlack technology, Middling processor performance
Summary: The new Nokia Lumia 625 retains most of the same old organs of Lumia 620 in its bigger, pricier self. But more can be expected from it. Windows 8 OS Strong built Good Battery backup Older specs With a bigger screen and a slightly faster processor, Nokia gets Lumia 620’s brother Lumia 625 ready for the affordable big screen war going on in the market.
Pros: indows 8 OS Strong built Good Battery backup
