Nokia 625 lands, priced at Php13,200

Nokia PH capped off the week with the local launch of one of the newest member of the Lumia family, the LTE-enabled, budget-centric Lumia 625.

If you can remember, the Lumia 625 made its first official debut back in July and has immediately made a name for itself thanks to its 4.7-inch LCD screen – the largest we’ve seen thus far from a Lumia handset. However, bigger doesn’t always mean better as is the case with the Lumia 625’s display which is only equipped with 800×480 pixels, equating to a rather disappointing pixel density of 199ppi.

Fortunately, Nokia has made a few adjustments on the 625’s display to compensate for low pixel count. This includes Color and Sunlight Readability enhancements and High Brightness Mode. We’ve yet to test these added features, so we can’t definitively tell whether or not it’ll make a difference to the screen, but we’ll certainly take note of it on our review.

    What the hell are you smoking, Nokia?!
    The asking price is way too steep for the feeble specs! I’d rather buy the Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0 than buying this adulterized piece of junk from Nokia and Micro$oft.

    WP8 is a piece of trash and will always be.

    The lumia 520 is practically same as this 625 of the older 620 at half the price. One fourth the price of the equal plastic iphone cheapo built, sinz it runs windows, more stable and better overall experience. Ang kokontra, apple fan, bading at kabit, either way same prosti.

    wonder why android fans keeps on bashing on WP. LOL.. anyways. 512mb isn’t a problem with WP.this is OS is smooth even for a lower hardware compare with..ehem… that you need to tweak and whatever you may call it. :) there was a review i read about 625 saying it’s camera is surprisingly good. plus a great battery, 31 hours talk time on 3G, LTE pa pala.. great phone for the price!
