Nokia Launches the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 625 in India

Nokia has just launched the much awaited Lumia 925 in India for Rs. 33,499, along with the mid-range Lumia 625 for Rs. 19,999. Whilst the selling point of the Lumia 925 is its brilliant camera and its aluminum frame, the Lumia 625 is touted as an entertainment device with its big 4.7” screen.

The Lumia 925 being a spiritual successor to the previous flagship Nokia 920 comes with improvements to the camera and design. The Lumia 925 becomes the first phone in the Lumia line to feature an aluminum frame, with polycarbonate back available in white, grey or black. The result is it makes the phone thinner and lighter; this is a huge relief as the 920 was too heavy and bulky to live with. The Lumia 925 will also taste the much appreciated Nokia Pro Cam seen first on the Lumia 1020 once the Amber update is out.

Nokia Lumia 925 Specs:

  • 4.5″ 16M-color PureMotionHD+ AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 1280 x 768 pixels, with a 332 ppi pixel density.

On the other hand, the Lumia 625 is purely marketed as an entertainment device. The device boasts a huge 4.7” screen, biggest in the Lumia line up and it looks like Nokia wants its users to fully utilize this screen. For starters, Nokia is offering goodies worth Rs.16000 in the form of an Entertainment package out-of-the-box. This includes movies, eBooks from Flipkart and access to the Nokia Music Store, among others.  The phone also comes preloaded with Your Movies app, through which the users can not only stream but also download movies.

  • It is really sad and frustrating that Nokia has no mobile with 1gb ram even in the 20K budget. Despite having a great set of hardware and software it is simply the greed of microsoft and nokia where they are intentionally making a phone with crippling the hardware by removing the fm radio feature even though it is there in the phone’s hardware. An additional 512mb ram is not going to cost a bomb and most of the games and apps don’t run smoothly with 512mb ram. This is one point that is holding me back from buying a nokia lumia phone with a budget of 20k.
