The big 4.7″ screen on the Lumia 625 is truly something amazing for a Nokia smartphone. Keeping up with the market of larger and larger screen, this smartphone increased screen size is a big welcome (Lumia 925 only has a 4.5″ screen). Unfortunately though, this Lumia 625’s screen resolution at 800 X 480 is not exactly the best display for a Windows Phone 8. The Samsung ATIV S has a 4.8″ screen with a 1280 X 720 resolution.

Nevertheless, the Lumia 625 is the biggest screen size for a Nokia WP8 phone. AND it comes with 4G LTE capability, which is a big selling point.

The other point to note, for those of you who likes personalising your phone with colourful phone cases (like me!) would have so much fun with the 5 semi transparent interchangeable shells that Nokia packaged in with this phone.

The interchangeable shells (casing) are made with a single piece of translucent polycarbonate (read: plastic). Something you can quickly snap in place to match with the colour scheme of your homescreen Live Tiles.

Other than having a big screen size and LTE capability, the Nokia Lumia 625 also comes with a lot of other Nokia software goodies:-

  • Nokia Smart Camera and Nokia Cinemagraph – Great camera technology as seen on other Lumia phones, incl “Best Shot”. “Motion Focus” and “Action Shot” for improved focus and action photography
  • Nokia Lumia “Amber” update for WP8 – the latest software update with added features and performance for Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices
  • Nokia HERE Maps, Drive and Transit – Nokia’s own mapping and navigation service
  • Great apps selection – like WhatsApp, Skype, VEVO, Viber, Vimeo, Keek, Instance (unofficial Instagram app), Temple Run as well as local apps like SmartShopper, MyPeribahasa and Phaze

 

Pricing and Availability

Remember when I say that the Nokia Lumia 625 is an affordable 4G LTE capable Lumia series Windows Phone 8 device?
