I got my 625 updated to Black today. Pretty useless must say. No Glance, no major camera update, no viewable change in interface except few like multi-tasking window has a close feature now and personal ringtones can be assigned to notifications. Big disappointment after spending an amount of money for this phone which would get me a far better phone in Android fraternity. This cannot even run Subway Surfer as it has 512 MB RAM which seamlessly runs on my entry level Android phone with 512 MB. Now there are some people out here who continuously claims that WP can do wonders with 512 MB on Dual Core but I just don't see that. WP has got to do a lot of catching to be even within light-years of Androids/iPhones.

I m a user of Asha 311 and Lumia 625..Honestly i dun encourage people to buy these phones..Instead of 1GB processor (Asha 311) and 4.7 inches wide screen (Lumia 625), nothing special with them actually..so, be wise and think carefully before buying phones after this..hehe..dun get me wrong, i m just telling my own feeling..=)

Guys go to Nokia website to check your phone's availability for the black update.
p.s. hate stupid t-mobile, all their wp8 devices are still waiting for approval.
