Great Windows phone for a very low price. The camera is the only reason I took out a star.

Summary: I love this phone. I gave up my Nokia Lumia 1520 because I had to switch back to Sprint and its antenna doesn't work for Sprint. I got an LG G3 which I'm very happy with. But then I missed the Windows phone OS. I missed Cortana, the live tiles, the here maps, the am/fm radio, the rolodex style app list and contacts list and the dedicated camera button. So, I bought this Lumia 625 from this seller. To my pleasant surprise, it came with an orange housing as well.
Excerpt: The Lumia 625 is a beautiful phone, it feels and looks like a quality device and not like a toy. It is quite snappy and fast. Internet browsing is smooth. The keyboard is comfortable to use, I like texting and writing on it. The rear camera is decent, but the front facing camera has a very low resolution. I love the size of the screen but the low resolution and pixel density kind of bothers me. Pictures often appear pixelated and colors washed out.
Pros: Looks and feel like a quality device, big screen, fast internet browsing, snappy, removable chasis, windows 8.1, good typing experience, resilient, LTE, Great Price
Cons: Menu keys wont light up, Low resolution, Low Ram, Low pixel density, low speakers, front facing camera has a low resolution, kind of heavy
It's solid built and easy to hold and it's nice to look at

Summary: I was in the need of replacing my Lumia 800 and wanted an affordable phone that featured LTE, WP 8.1, memory card, and a camera with flash. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be sch a phone yet. My first choice was the 635, but that one comes without the flash; the 625 has flash, but only runs on WP 8.0, for the time being - until the 8.1 update rolls out, which is why, in the end, I went for this phone. It's solid built and easy to hold and it's nice to look at.
Summary: I live in Trinidad and Tobago and I purchased this phone for use in my own country and it worked very well. i just had to changed the language and put in a sim and it was ready for use as it was unlocked as advertised. This phone is just right for my needs. It is a mid range phone but a very good one. navigating windows is easy and the phone experienced no freezing etc; an overall good experience so far. the camera is good.
Summary: Great value for the price. The user interface is fast and easy. Popped in an LTE microSIM and was off to the races. Love the speed on the "Internet Sharing" (hotspot/access point) for connecting my notebook and other devices. Also, love the downloadable maps which can be used offline. MS Office is a big bonus. My main complaint was that the import of my Contacts had to be done via Bluetooth from my old phone rather than a VCF file.
Summary: This model of Nokia phone has virtually been discontinued by all the big retailers in favour of the 630 but unfortunately the 630 does not have an LED flash included therefore this makes the 625 a better buy in my opinion. A good friend has had one for about 6 months so I knew what to expect in fact we were so impressed my partner and I bought one each.
