Full in Depth Review

IMP NOTE: Read only if you really want to buy this device, and do not blame me / my review if you do not like the device after purchase.nnThank you flipkart.com for delivering this product one day before the actual date. The package was very clean and good. But, I thought you would provide another invoice bill instead of sticking it to the box. Never the less, you have provided good quality as expected.nnReview: Before you decide that "is lumia 525 the best smart phone I wanna buy?" make sure that you are not interested in android platform, apps and tired of clutter content or the way your current phone looks and lags all the time. Also, a small advice, people always have a misconception about the camera in mobile devices, I've seen most of them think more megapixels means more clarity, which is not true in fact. A smart phone which has 4 inch IPS display (Multi-touch) 5MP camera (lenses included *) which gives you quick uploads on your favorite social media like facebook, instagram etc,. is always a smart choice rather than compromising on things which are least important and does not helps in our routine life.nnSpecification of this phone are genuine. Usability is truly amazing when all tasks are done on it each and every day without getting lost in useless apps. However, this phone gives you a feeling of carrying a premium quality device and not like a budget ones.

Awesome Product from Nokia

Hello Friends,nnAfter a lot of research i finalized this device as my choice and then without second thought i ordered if from another online site for much lower price than flipkart.I have been using the device from past 20 days.And my opinion is :nnThe device performance is Buttery Smooth,Windows UI is Awesome.I suggest this phone for those who are bored with laggy android,those who cannot afford a high end android.nnAlmost all important apps are now available on WP store except very few which we use hardly. Never think that WP store does'nt have apps or so !nnPerformance : yes performance is superb in this price range, I bet you,show me a single smartphone other than windows,in this price range that performs really good ! We cant find any ! nnMicrosoft has given high priority for the Privacy of customers and this is the reason there are many limitations in the OS.Hopefully at least few will be addressed in next update.nnCamera is excellent during daytime but Nights its not !nnThough there are no customizations as of now,Microsoft is working on WP 8.1 which adds many customizations.nnAnd never ever compare WP and Android ! Android took nearly 7 years to reach the position which it is enjoying now,but WP is just two years old.It takes time.nnMost Of the people have complaint regarding the Battery Life.n--> This is because most of them put over charge before the first usage(6 hrs ++).Those days were gone.nn--> If you are getting a new phone,then just charge it to 100% and use the phone normally for a couple of days(lets say 4 to 6 days or a week).And never operate your phone when its charging(Only during these days),mainly do not play games.nn-->after a week or so play with your phone as you want, No restrictions.nnNote : This is not from any source or article, This is from my personal experience.nn-->My phone gives a back up of 1 day + 5 hours On "moderate--heavy" usage. And on light usage i get 2+ days back up.nnModerate--heavy Usage : Wifi Always on,Whatsapp,hike,Browsing Via Internet Explorer,Subway surfers + 2 or 3 games,calls.Streaming(at times only).nnLight usage : Calls,messages,Few normal games.No wifi or data.nnn** Hope this review helps for those who decide to buy this phone**
