People complaining about this being a waste of money.nFirstly the price was high at the time of launch. That is the case with every new product.nNow it has been priced reasonably.nnFew reasons the price is higher that Lumia 720:nâ€¢Full HD (1080p) video recording on Lumia 625 as opposed to HD (720p) on Lumia 720.nâ€¢PureMotion screen with 60Hz refresh rate (found otherwise only on the 920,925 and 1020). (It does lack ClearBlack display though. And also Glance Screen feature isn't supported.)nâ€¢Nokia Music subscription is for 6 months with Lumia 625 and 3 months on Lumia 720.nâ€¢Lumia 625 is 4G ready, Lumia 720 supports only 3.5G at the most.nâ€¢Lumia 625 has a faster processor (1.2ghz dual-core) than Lumia 720 (1ghz dual-core). This results in smoother overall performance.nâ€¢Lumia 625 comes with Nokia Amber update pre-installed and BlueTooth 4.0 pre-enabled.nâ€¢(Most obvious point) the screen on Lumia 625 is larger than that on Lumia 720.nnAnd yes, Lumia 625 has FM radio. Some people have wrong info.nnYes, the Lumia 720 has better cameras and supports wireless charging, but you need to understand that a product can only provide you so much in the price you pay for it. And no product is perfect. There are always some people who may not like the product. But at least please don't misguide others.nSo next time, before cursing anything and questioning some company's commitment, please do your research properly.nThanks!
I have been using this phone since a month now and have fallen in love with it.nI have used an android device for 2 years and now when I planned to get a new one, I was kind of inclined towards a window phone to get a different taste.nMy budget was around 15K, my basic requirements were good look, large screen, front camera, good surfing speed.nIt took me around 2 weeks to choose between all the phones in this price range, it was tough :-/.nI have this kind of thinking that when I am spending as much as 15k bucks for a phone, I will prefer spending it on brands like Nokia/ Samsung/ HTC or Sony. So in this way my options already got a bit filtered.nBefore making this purchase from flipkart, I personally went to a Mobile store to see how these devices actually look in my hand as the outlook of the mobile was one of my major criterion and the Nokia lumia 625 absolutely nailed in it.nLumia 720 was also a good phone with better camera and "clear black display" but I liked the look of 625 far more because of its larger screen and rounded edge which looked sexy. It doesn't look like a 15k phone, rather having a first sight of the phone and seeing the "Nokia" name on it, one would easily presume that its atleast 23k phone.(I have personally experienced it). I got the Orange colour and it looks just LOVELY! It looks very vibrant! You also have the option to get shells of other colours such as green, black or yellow. I think it will be wiser to go for a black coloured one and then buy an orange shell, coz the price of a black shell is 1200/- online whereas that of a orange shell is around 700/-. So that way you can save your 500/- ;)nI am not going to mention the specs in detail as flipkart has already done that... and trust me, they are not lying :P.nnAs per my experience with this beautiful device, the pros are:n* Great look, Great build, Superb design, Awfully slim :O.n* Really Large screen. Big enough to clearly surf internet, read books or watch movies. You don't actually need bigger screen than this for a mobile. Else it gets difficult to handle..n* As they say, this phone is 4g ready, therefore when you are using 3g connection, surfing is lightning fast, you will love it.n* The touch of the phone is superb. I can easily handle it even wearing hand gloves.n* You will love the interface of Window 8, if you are a first time user.n* The camera is real good. I don't think, you buy a camera mobile to be a professional photographer or so. For that you have to go for expensive cameras from sony/nikon blah blah. In a 15k camera mobile you expect a decent camera which captures clear and decent quality image. Lumia 625 serves you very well in this category. The flash is also very good. The low light images are also good. Not as good as the day light images though.n* HD Video recording. this is a real good feature of this phone. When you see the videos in your laptop, its real pleasure.n* I don't generally rely on headphones given free with the device. i use my Sennheiser headphones with this device and It works just fine. I love the sound quality.n* The Speaker is good, real loud and clear. n* Battery back up is another great thing of this wonderful device. You charge it full, You use it for a whole 10-12 hrs, playing games, listening songs, surfing nets, which was like a dream when I used to have an android device.n* Window phone doesn't hang. Processing speed is fast.n* With this phone you get 6 months unlimited subscription of songs from Nokia Music and movies from Nokia movies which is also great.n* In the Nokia mix radio, you will find good varieties of mixes of various genres and artists.n* There are almost every kind of apps you need in the store.n* The gorilla glass looks awesome on the mobile. You will not feel the need to spend your money on buying a scratch guard for it seriously.nnCons if you want me to tell: :-/n* People will point out the absence of clear black display in this category. But I don't find it difficult to read the screen even under the sun.n* Its 480x800 Pixels resolution. Its actually a bit down for a screen size of 4.7". But the thing is, it actually doesn't harm the display. You choose bright coloured tiles and increase the brightness, it ill do. So don't worry! :)n* In the store, I find most of high end games are paid. For example I got the "real football" game free in my previous android mobile but in windows 8 store, you have to pay to get it.nHowever its not really a con for me, as I am not into much gaming. Still if you are a gamer, the large screen will serve well for you ;).nThat's all I had to say after using this for a month. Lumia 625 is definitely a very good buy!nnA small tip: Go through the detailed specs of the mobiles whatever you choose before buying it. I do get surprised when I see people saying in the review "this phone has only 5 mp camera...this phone has low resolution...this phone has only 512mb ram..blah blah!!!" You should have known this facts before buying it!
