have been using the Lumia 525 for nearly a fortnight now.
* Truly smooth interface (as claimed)
*Very good resolution (of course, Moto E does give some serious competition)
* Apps run real smooth unlike my earlier Panasonic T31 (which was awful)
* Clear sound quality...especially the noise cancellation feature which ensures excellent audio to the person at the other end (have spoken to ppl in crowded marketplaces...and never heard a 'pardon me' or 'what was that?' or 'i cannot hear you')
* Windows has announced update 8.1 which should take care of some niggling issues
* No file manager feature (a big plus in Android). Except for images and videos, the SD Card cannot store anything by default, unless you hook it up to a Laptop or the like. And even after that, the OS does not recognize files like pdf.
* Very few apps available (approx 40k apps for Windows versus 430k for Android). And that probably will not change soon as Microsoft charges $99 for every app loaded on Windows Market
* No flash
All in all, its more of a business phone than a typical smartphone. But am happy with it nevertheless...

Moto G has flash and a front camera. Lumia 525 does NOT.
Still, I liked the camera on the Lumia 525 better than the Moto G (it's awesome for daylight and even dim-light photography IMO) but I guess that's a personal choice which is probably biased to Nokia :D Motorola is a great company, I respect them but I love Nokia more so basically, my opinions can't be trusted :D
Like I said, it ultimately boils down to user requirement. WHAT DO YOU WANT IN A PHONE?
K.D, 22 May 2014Can anybody plz tel me that shoud I buy moto g or lumia 525.d only prblm wid lumia 525 is dat ... moreDepends on what your requirements are.
Moto G is an equally good phone as the Lumia 525 if not better. http://phonerocket.com/smartphones/Nokia-Lumia-525-vs-Motorola-Moto-G
While the Lumia 525 has less than half the processing power, screen resolution and a tiny screen compared to the Moto G, what we should remember is that the Windows Phone OS is one that's growing at a faster pace than Android. Unlike Android, it is not as resource hungry, it will not clutter up and slow down as time progresses (unless of course if you take extra special care of your phone... Which is not what an average smartphone user will bother to do)
By and large (at least on paper), the Moto G is the perfect option when comparing the two, but remember that the Moto G restricts you to 8 or 16 GB storage space with NO EXPANSION SLOTS via SD Cards. And personally, I wouldn't even DREAM of buying the 8 GB Moto G variant, that's just suicide.
Then again, if you're a tech junkie and like a more open OS than Microsoft's offerings, go for Android.
It's really up to you : )
