Overall design quality is pretty hard and well. Its has rounded corners with slight bulged outwards on the backside. The phone is largest Lumia Nokia has built, at 5 inches tall with a 4.7-inch screen. The dimensions of 133.2 x 72.2 x 9.2mm make it the longest and widest Lumia on the market, though it’s actually quite thin. It’s not the thinnest, or the lightest, at 159g (5.6 ounces), but it’s well-balanced and contoured. It has a single speaker on the backside in the bottom of the phone also 5 MP camera along with flash is placed on the backside of the phone.


Lumia 625 primarily contains the 4.7-inch 480 x 800 IPS LCD display, with a pixel density of 201 pixels per inch. While reviewing we found that its Display brightness is slightly lower than other devices. It provides you soft and crisp details on the display. In direct overhead sunlight, the screen is tough to read and reflects a lot of light. If you look at screen from different angles then everything is visible from every side or angle of the phone. Overall its the only con we have met while reviewing the Lumia 625.

The Lumia 625 has a 5-megapixel camera, with an f/2.4 lens and small companion LED flash, and Nokia’s impressive Smart Cam app. You can change the ISO, white balance, exposure value and aspect ratio, but there aren’t any effects.Also it can record 1080p video at 30fps.

Overall if we compare the device with its price then its a useful and must try device as it does not lag in-between and also provides simple look for usage. IF you are looking for a lag free device and which can also give you good feel then you can go with the Nokia Lumia 625.

Also there’s a good battery backup even if you do some heavy loading stuff on the phone.
