Nokia Lumia 525 officially released

The Finnish company has silently unveiled the Nokia Lumia 525, the successor to their entry-level Windows Phone 8 smartphone Lumia 520 which was announced back in February of this year.


The Lumia 525 didn’t fall far from the tree and retains most of the specs of its predecessor: 4-inch WVGA (800 x 480) IPS LCD, Qualcomm Snapragon S4 dual-core CPU clocked at 1Ghz, 5 megapixel camera without LED flash, 8GB internal storage, microSD card support, and 1,430mAh battery. It even sports the same dimensions.



The only difference is that it now has 1GB of RAM instead of 512MB which allows the Lumia 525 to take advantage of most of the apps inside the Windows Phone Store.

The new Nokia Lumia 525 will be available in Red, Black, Orange, White, and Yellow. It will arrive in Singapore on December 14th with a price tag of SGD249 or around Php8,700. No information yet on local availability.

    Susmaryosep, Anlaki naman ng profit margin ng Microsoft/Nokia, dinaig pa ang Apple!

    You’re an idiot if you think this jurassic-spec’d piece of shythe is worth Php8,700

    • wew says:

      pricing phones is not all about specs…sa android cguro oo pero hindi ganun ang ms ang minamarket nila dito eh ung overall optimization ng phones

    • nameless says:

      Wag na kasi mag-react kung wala naman pambili. Lumalabas lang ang pag sour-graping eh.

      It’s good for it’s purpose. Who needs specs kung di rin ma-utilize? This one is for casual users.

      I really like how abuzalzal spice up things here…you earned your name man. good job!

    Dear haters, try it before you talk shit about it.

  5. sinned says:

    less than 7k ung 520, if that is true, +P1,700 for double the ram. i’m planning to buy 520 until this. Feb 2013 lng na-launch ang 520 meron na kagad follow-up. WOW!

    Believe me when I say that I love Nokia products. Heck I even resurrected my old Nokia phone when I realised natural calamities lasts for days, and smartphones die before that. That being said, the price of the Moto G is very hard to ignore… especially when specs are superior on paper. It’s hard for me to justify this one.

    I own a Galaxy Note 3 but I’m considering this phone. WP is expanding and i can’t wait to try it out for myself. Lahat naman ng OS may plus and nega points so there’s no need to bash, much better shut up lalo na kung walang pambili.

    And for those saying WP is a piece of sh*t, let me tell you that Android is still plagued by fragmentation issue, iOS is still exclusive/close ecosystem, Ubuntu mobile didn’t make it even for a kickstarter project and Symbian is dead. Walang OS na ligtas sa negative points, hampaslupa kang walang pambili.

    Ano nanamang NOKIA eto! Palibhasa NOKIA ! Ang cellphone ng mga HAMPAS LUPA !

    • boylugaw says:

      okay lang yan kesa tulad mo na walang originality. sumikat lang sa twitter ang username na yan gaya gaya ka naman.

  10. Videos says:

    I hope to see a video or an article review with existing phones with same price range.

  11. AA says:

    Ayos na sana to wala lang flash sa camera.

  12. TarantadongPinoy says:

    Wow, ang ganda nito, 1GB Ram, kahit ung 512mb lang tong Nokia Lumia 520 ko, walang lag.

  13. Greenie says:

    Considering inflation and the price of the old Lumia 520 when it was first released, I think this is a steal.

    HOWEVER, I disagree that this is JUST for casual users. I’m taking up graduate studies and I have utilized my Lumia 520 well.

    I use Skydrive to back up and edit my files. I have MS Office to view and edit spreadsheets. There’s also Powerpoint to review presentations while on transit. Heck, I even use word to read cases.

    Other than these, I take advantage of Here Maps to find good meet up points (take note that it works offline). Also, my work and personal e-mails are synced.

    Moreover, there’s Photobeamer to optimize slideshow presentations! Is not it impressive when the speaker does not look at the screen behind him while presenting? I do this. With Photobeamer I see what slide I’m on using my phone (I convert my slides to images).

    I may not be as tech savvy as others, but Nokia and Windows OS work for me.

    Going back to the article, for me, this is a fine addition to Nokia’s line up.

    UTILIZE TECHNOLOGY WELL. YES, you may have the latest phone out there. Question is, CAN YOU UTILIZE IT WELL?

    Lumia 520 sana ang pipiliin ko this month pag nagparenew ako sa Globe. Maghihintay na lang siguro ako, mukhang kukunin naman to ng Globe e. Excited lang. :D

    PS: Andaming shitty comments ah. :D
