Nokia Lumia 625  brings a 4.7Nokia's teaser from yesterday promised something big for today and it delivered, sort of. The Nokia Lumia 625 is an entry-level Windows Phone 8 handset with a rather big (for the class) screen 4.7". That's not groundbreaking, though as the WP7-powered HTC Titan had a 4.7" screen back in 2011....

Lumia 625 doesn't support the 4G bandwidth in india. So, it should cost less as compared to other countries

512 MB RAM is enough for Windows Phone 8 OS, remember it is not Android OS which is crappy.

Was it hard to put a 1Gb of ram in there? We're midway of 2013, still I'm seeing 512 of ram. Low-to-Midtier devices wasn't an excuse anymore.

2gb ram?
64gb storage?
adreno 305?
gorilla glass3?
amoled, pmhd, clearblack?
lte, nfc, dualwifi abgn hotspot, bt 4.0, usbotg?
gyro, accelero, proximity, compass, baro?
pv ois back and 2mp wide angle front cam?
2.2ghz dual krait (since it supports 1, 1.2, 1.5 ghz)?
8.5mm thick body and still bigger than 2000mah battery?
i guess not, it simply needs to assemble these in one piece, and the cost will increase just reasonably.

> In reply to Rad-K @ 2013-07-23 21:16 from 0ZJS - click to readWhat you have said is true but you have to understand that WP8 isn't Android, it can't be used with just any chipsets, chipsets have to be designed to work for WP8. Even on a post in GSMA or somewhere else I saw that MS had to put GDR3 update on hold because of problems with newer chipsets (bugs etc)...
Nokia could have increased the size of L1020's screen to 5" but it would still use the WXGA res because of WP8's limitations.
" the flagship is not about price, but having the most premium to date. i'd gladly pay good money for a superior phone, some are buying low specs luxury phones for big money, why not a superior specs lumia for twice the price of l1020? i would."
To that, L1020 has a 2GB RAM on-board (most premium in phones until Note 3 comes out). CPU, GPU those are MS's fault, not Nokia's. They didn't think ahead and didn't optimize their OS before. (Come on, it doesn't even have a File Explorer, Screen Rotation Lock, etc)
Price? Just look up the user opinions of Lumia 1020, people are all over it, '$300 is too much I'd rather buy a S4, HTC One, Sony XZ'. Maybe you will buy it, but that's just one person, what about the millions of other people?

That's a lot of mobile for your buck, way to go.
Have already used/owned the Lumia 610, 620, 800, 520.
WP 7.5/7.8 was already swell but WP is simply excellent!
Ok, there is still work to be done by Microsoft but aren't we all beta users?
And you can feel that Nokia is short of cash, sometimes it's buggy whereas you don't have this as much with HTC or Samsung... But the fix it a while later.

> In reply to Shafin BD @ 2013-07-23 18:15 from K2EX - click to readthat means that lumia 1020 is not purely a flagship, but mostly kind of a camera centric phone. what about those who want a superior device at all features? afterall that's the meaning of flagship, being best in every direction, better by putting a 12mp camera and making it slim, bigger screen, high res, latest cpu, gpu, ram, best battery and most features of all the line. the flagship is not about price, but having the most premium to date. i'd gladly pay good money for a superior phone, some are buying low specs luxury phones for big money, why not a superior specs lumia for twice the price of l1020? i would.

The products are fine but the pricing is the problem with Nokia. All the products are over priced or beyond the reach apart from some elite. If they change that part they can have a good stay in the market else like it bonds the company will also have a junk rating.
