They are doing their game again. First the low-medium segment of the market, they make some mistakes, work around them and... then comes the flagship.
Nokia has done that with every product line they develop. You can see the strategy in action here. First was the 625, now the 825 and for sure in a few months they'll launch their phablet flagship.
Gelvin, 14 Aug 2013It's indeed a beautiful designed OS with some really cool live tiles. I don't care about restr... moresame here, my lact active activity on xda is about 6 month ago where I'm still using my nexus
Will this device contain 1GB Ram to enjoy all the apps and games in win8?
finally, nokia is at lease trying. for what? the giant has fallen, it's best that it stays there.
grayhawk11, 14 Aug 2013WTH...has nokia gone mad dishing out these big ass phones...though i like wp8 but its nowhere ... morewhat if I told you if you can put weather or clock tiles on top row since you won't be touching it every time and keeps most used app tile on center row
Will it be equipped with PureView too? If not, I will skip. Basically, nothing worth to mention about the OS, except with the camera for Lumia. And that's why every ads from Nokia is mainly about cameras and cameras.
I hope the article is correct that it's meant for low-mid range market because that could mean only one thing: AFFORDABLE! With WP OS smooth and fast as it is, we want great affordable phones here in developing markets. Nokia, bring it on!
I wonder why people like to join flow system with the processor. I will not only make calls in a Smartphone! I will also watch videos, access the Net and open type Word documents, Excel and PowerPoint. And in these cases is much more required of the processor to the operating system! The only thing missing now people say that games in Adreno 2xx runs better in terms of graphics and performance than the Adreno 3xx only because it runs Windows Phone 8 in 2xx! Let's use more awareness is not the same.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2013Actually WP7 Single core is already smoother than Galaxy S4. Optimized software matters. Java ... moreSingle core WP7 doesn't lag? Have you ever tried playing games or loading heavy websites on those phones? It lags like hell or shuts down... Stop being a troll and go buy an S4 then compare.
skey25, 14 Aug 2013i can tell......lumia sucks.....windows phone 8 sucks....Android rocks,thats my dresscode too!So why you're here? Android fans are only allow to WINDOW shop.
TheWildOne007, 14 Aug 2013In youtube speed comparison tests Lumia 920 Dual-core had the same speed as Android quad-cores... moreActually WP7 Single core is already smoother than Galaxy S4. Optimized software matters. Java just sucks on any platform.
It seems strange the horde of trolls in any Nokia - WP related news... Someone feels threatened?
I didn't now that smartphones with quad core cpu's are in the "low mid range" segment. To be fair this Lumia 825 it's more like a mid - high range phone, no lower mid range.
skey25, 14 Aug 2013i can tell......lumia sucks.....windows phone 8 sucks....Android rocks,thats my dresscode too!In youtube speed comparison tests Lumia 920 Dual-core had the same speed as Android quad-cores, if Nokia uses quad core then it will be double speed compared to Android's quad core! The truth hurts?
rdx_jack, 14 Aug 2013i think gsmarena needs to be fair, being a reputed tech site, can't categorize this phone as a... moreyes it does make difference on a 720p vs 1080p, maybe u need a new glasses.
can u really see the different between 360p vs 720p on a phone? same question
