Nokia Lumia 625 Review


Among all the Lumia's we've reviewed thus far, the Lumia 720 has easily been the most impressive. Being a mid-range handset, it embodied some of the best features of Nokia's Lumia range at a price we thought was acceptable for a Windows Phone 8 device....

In terms of performance, the UI is quick and fluid and we didn't find too much lag. We also get a slightly faster SoC in the form of the Snapdragon MSM8930 which now runs at 1.2GHz and features the same Adreno 305 GPU. The limiting factor here however...

Review Nokia Lumia 625 Smartphone


The new mid-range. No matter if entry-level or high-end smartphon

Sturdy, high-quality case; Fast internet via LTE; Video recording in 1080p resolution; Intuitive operation of Windows Phone 8; Memory expandable via SD card; Good battery runtimes

Highly reflective display; Only 5 GB memory space; No replaceable battery

Nokia has no weak links in the Lumia series: The Lumia 625 comes with great handling, equipment and performance.

Nokia Lumia 625 review: Big and colorful


The Nokia Lumia 625 is one of the last smartphones by Nokia, putting an end to what has been a bumpy ride for the Finns in the modern phone era. Whether the Lumia line will find greener pastures under Microsoft remains to be seen, but one thing's for...

Quad-band GSM support ; Tri-band 3G and LTE support with 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.7" 16M-color IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of 480 x 800 pixels with Gorilla Glass 2 ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, 1080p video recording @...

4.7" quite a stretch for the WVGA resolution ; App catalog falls short of Android and iOS ; Non-user-accessible battery ; Only 512MB of RAM ; No system-wide file manager ; No NFC ; Below average loudspeaker performance

We have no choice but to put aside the Microsoft deal, the value of stock and the aftershocks in our evaluation. Simply put, the Nokia Lumia 625 has the timing - but not the substance - of a swan song.

Another week, another Lumia. This latest grenade thrown by Nokia in its continued assault on the smartphone market is the Lumia 625. Following up on its

4G-capable ; Good battery life ; Inexpensive ; Pleasing design, comfortable to hold

Disappointing display ; Only 512MB of RAM ; Average camera

A classic, colorful Lumia that offers LTE for a reasonable price. But, its obvious flaws mean it could've been so much better.

Nokia Lumia 625


The Nokia Lumia 625 is neither a premium or budget device, but instead a little bit of both.

The Nokia Lumia 625's 4.7-inch screen makes for effortless viewing, and the $300 price tag its wallet-friendly for an unlocked phone. Depending on your area, it also supports LTE.

For a phone of its size, the Lumia 625's too-low resolution is fuzzy and dull compared to premium Lumias. The 625's 5-megapixel camera struggles taking photos in the shade.

Despite a few faults, the Lumia 625’s smooth, higher-end design and solid performance make it a great value for the price.

Nokia Lumia 625 Review


The newest member of the Lumia family is colorful like all its other peers and brings a spacious 4.7-inch display…

Largest display in a Nokia Lumia phone so far ; Mostly smooth performance

Feels overpriced compared to similar Android devices ; Screen lacks sharpness, hard to read outdoors ; Average camera

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,...

Review: Nokia Lumia 625


Nokia is on something of a roll. Of late, the company's been churning out models at a bit of a rapid clip, including the 1020 megapixel-heavy wonder and the high-end 925. And now it's seen fit to unleash the Lumia 625 – the current giant in the Lumia...

But the rest of the phone isn’t chopped liver, far from it: this is a decent performer sold at a really good price, and the inclusion of LTE makes the decision almost a no-brainer. Just make sure to give the phone a spin first, and make sure that you...

Big screen, low price, but is it any good?

Good battery life ; 4G enabled ; MicroSD slot ; Decent music player

Low res screen ; Overpriced ; Average camera ; Only 8GB of storage

We're not really sure who the Nokia Lumia 625 is aimed at. For most people the negative qualities of the screen would probably outweigh the positives, which given that you could snap up a Nokia Lumia 820 for similar money or a Google Nexus 4 for less...

Bargain price ; Colourful, changeable shells ; 4G LTE support

Low-res screen ; Only 512MB RAM ; Not enough WP8 apps

Nokia's certainly ramping up it's Lumia line-up with 12 handsets now available. The question is does the Nokia Lumia have something different to offer? It's certainly a decent handset, the size of the screen at 4.7-inches and 4G are welcome additions...

The Nokia Lumia 625 adds another carriage to the runaway Lumia train - there's barely been pause for breath between Nokia's latest Windows 8 smartphones of late. So what does the middle-spec Lumia add to the lineup?

Good value for money, Nokia gives you a great Windows Phone experience, solid design and build, it has a big display if that's what you crave, microSD slot, doesn't feel cheap

Screen is low resolution and not a great performance display, you miss out on things like compass and NFC, limited apps, larger screen size doesn't extend functionality of OS

With each Nokia Lumia device we examine we find a lot to love. Nokia's design is solid throughout much of the Lumia range, the specifications see Windows Phone 8 ticking along without complaint and the Finnish company is certainly bringing improvements...
