Nokia Lumia 1320 and 525 hands-on: First look


Nokia held its own event on the fringe of CES - no new devices were revealed but the Finns showed the Lumia 1320 and Lumia 525 to the press and public. There's a lot riding on those devices, even though...

One of the best-selling Windows Phone 8 handsets gets an upgrade


The Nokia Lumia 525, the successor to the popular Lumia 520, delivers entry-level features in a no-frills design. CNET Asia takes a closer look.

Nokia Lumia 525 Review


You don't mess with a winning formula, people say, and there's no device out there that seems to follow that mantra as ardently as the Nokia Lumia 525. The successor to the wildly popular Lumia 520 has some big shoes to fill, as its inheriting quite ...

Appealing and sturdy design ; Offline turn-by-turn navigation is a considerable advantage ; The camera produces enviable stills for its class ; Call quality is stellar

Pixel density is on the low side ; Outdoor display visibility is poor ; Lacks an LED flash ; No front camera

Unpretentious, effective. Two words that are at the very core of the Nokia Lumia 525's DNA. With a price tag of about $180, and the possibility of another sales frenzy à la Lumia 520, this is Nokia's new device to watch.

Nokia Lumia 525 Review


Nokia has been especially successful with their entry-level range of Windows Phones, particularly the Lumia 520, which on the back of its dirt-cheap price, quickly propelled itself to be the best-selling Windows Phone. A successor was always on the...

Reasonable design gets the job done. Windows Phone is well-optimized for the entry-level hardware.

The Lumia 525 is a new smartphone with year-old hardware. Substandard camera takes mediocre shots in all conditions. Poor value up against the Lumia 520 and Moto G.

The Lumia 525’s removable lithium-ion battery packs 5.3 watt-hours (1,430 mAh), which is fairly small compared to other handsets. However, the four inch display, lack of LTE radios and low-power Snapdragon S4 SoC shouldn’t need a massive battery behind...

Nokia Lumia 525: A sense of déjà vu


The Nokia Lumia 525 fixes a major shortcoming of the Lumia 520, thereby making it the one of the best budget smartphones in the market.

The Nokia Lumia 525 is priced at Rs 10,399, which is roughly Rs 2,300 more than the Lumia 520. Considering nothing much has changed apart from the higher capacity RAM, it feels slightly expensive. However, the free Gameloft bundle worth Rs 2,000...

Nokia Lumia 525 Review- same body, beefed up engine


Nokia Lumia 525 has certainly shown clear performance improvements but is useful for a person needing the similar gaming experience that he would get of a decent Android phone.

• Snappier performance ; • Aptly priced

• No build upgrade ; • No front camera

Nokia Lumia 525 has certainly shown clear performance improvements but is useful for a person needing the similar gaming experience that he would get of a decent Android phone and either does not want to shell out that much money or loves the Windows...

Nokia Lumia 525 mobile review - PCQuest


The company has upgraded its high-selling Lumia 520 smartphone with better memory and renamed it as Lumia 525. Other than that, you get the same 4 inch display, rear camera

Review: Nokia Lumia 525


Impressive build; Interchangeable back panels; 4" IPS super-sensitive screen; Sleek and fluid UI; Offline voice-guided Sat Nav; Compatible with high-end games

Lacks camera flash; No front-facing camera

The Lumia 525 is available for Rs 10,200. If you’re not bothered about a front-facing camera and LED flash, the 525 is the best sub-10k phone in the market. There’s no Android phone in this price segment that can offer such fluid user-experience,...
