kavint, 23 Jul 2013nokia has no flagship.. useless brand launching phones with 64 mb internal storage and 512 mb ... moreNow you are starting to comparing Asha series to Lumia and high-end Droids -_- So Clever of you, (claps claps)
So tell me which OEM has a Droid with 2GB RAM within $189.99???
And you sound more like a troll rather than a hard core Nokia fan
this is why nokiaµsoft sucks: 4.7" IPS LCD with 480 x 800 resolution. And we all learn that "the big thing" is pixels of display...
luisinhoens90, 23 Jul 2013If you want all the top WP apps and external SD storage there is the Lumia 820. You can actual... moreThe 820 (and Sprint 822) are the ONLY Nokia WP8 phones with 1G of RAM and externalSD. They are also 8mp-camera, 8gig internal storage, 480X800 res, mid-range phones from last year. The AtivS is the only wp8 device that shows up with 16+internal, extSD, 720res specs..but the camera is still an 8mp from two years ago.
I haven't heard of any android apps that require over 512RAM (if you know any, please share), non-the-less you can easily find a $200 low/midrange android with 480+res, 1gig RAM, and extSD that won't have any hardware limitations holding you back from using an application.
Rad-K, 23 Jul 2013I want to buy Lumia 1020, but it doesn't make me feel good to know that it has smaller screen,... moreNow now don't go on complaining about the thickness about the two phones, that is just plain stupid -_-
One has a 41MP sensor and the other a 5MP sensor, how is the 1020 supposed to be slimmer than 625...
The thinner bezels are due to the larger screen, Nokia had to trim the bezel as well as increasing the height...
The Bluetooth of 1020 can be upgraded to BT4.0 by a SW Update as far as I know. :)
I had Nokias for years before switching to Android HTC and now Samsung. But the Lumia range is looking more and more cooler and attractive every day. I guess I'm going back to Nokia again!
Those who buy entry level phones usually don't have 4g in their countries. 1g ram would have been better,keep making these mistakes...why nokia?
nokia has no flagship.. useless brand launching phones with 64 mb internal storage and 512 mb ram.. it is like ostrich , burying head in sand makes it to think as hidden..
none of the tech sites even bother to publish news about nokia.. they dont even value lumia 1020 with sony/ samsung.. they consider nokia is worsen than chineese brands..
just browse urself u will know lenova/ huawei has more news and reviews than lumia..
only gsmarena still provides news about nokia an dying brand....
nokia launches lumia for 15,000 with 512 mb ram.. 2gb ram android phones are available at same price... why nokia you still dont learn from ur mistakes.... its pity for me to see u dying as a hard core fan of nokia...
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2013Too bad few to none of wp's high-end phones have external storage..you need to get a 512RAM -i... moreIf you want all the top WP apps and external SD storage there is the Lumia 820. You can actually get it for almost the same money as the L720.
Btw: this high end apps incompatibility also happens in Android, don't tell me it's something new for you. Of course if you want to get more you also have to take out your wallet and get the higher end device. Otherwise... Do you think people would actually choose the more expensive Lumias? Why? If they can get exactly the same apps for less
lalummlal, 23 Jul 2013What's the use of a 5MP shooter when there's no instagram! :/Honestly, not everyone needs Instagram. I used to have t
Instagram in my previous phone (Razr Maxx) and I only used it once. No need for unreal/over saturated colors. Then I got the Galaxy S3 and I haven't even bothered to install it. I'm actually more interested on the front facing camera this Lumia comes with.
specs are better than any android entry level phone...
the price is okay too. good for those people who want to try out WP8. like me... lol
The hardware design is just plain boring in my opinion... The Asha 501 got it going more than these Lumias that pop up like mushrooms on a rainy day.

I am sure you will like it ,
I want to buy Lumia 1020, but it doesn't make me feel good to know that it has smaller screen, older gpu and blutooth, same battery, more thickness and bezel than the midrange Lumia 625. Hey Nokia, which is your flagship? I want to buy your flagship, do you have a flagship?
when will nokia offer 1 gb ram in below 20000 price range,bloody nokia cant even using the brain after reading the reviews atleast
Honestly, the Lumia range made Nokia cool in my eyes. I'm an Android user and not one bit unhappy with it. But still, I am finding it hard to resist the 625. Will choose between this one and the Xperia L as my next change.

The Boy with Red Hat, 23 Jul 2013Not the hardware, the OS updates, Since Nokia is the one that working hard on that and Microso... moreAnd that makes some sense, but I thought they were all locked down to similar hardware/software so no phone would be left behind..except where wp7 is hardware limited.
I do doubt the stock android samsung and HTC will have significantly faster updates than their cousins though (if you don't count the slow-arse US carriers..sigh).
The Boy with Red Hat, 23 Jul 2013Did you realize yo need to install C. ROMS in Samsung in order to have stability and lag free ... moreI've always had fine luck with using an alternate launcher and closing the default L. The only phone I've suffered any instability from after this is a dirt-cheap LG that feels the need to "cleanse" itself of.. .. itself every once in a while. But it's probably a prepaid refurb created during the period where LG couldn't make a stable board to save their lives. Even THAT is well behaved 6days of the week.
