Nokia have added yet another Lumia to their ever-growing Windows Phone range, and this time it’s the biggest of them all – the Nokia Lumia 625.
The 625 has a 4.7 inch screen but an extremely disappointing WVGA (480 x 800) display, the lowest resolution that can be found on a Windows Phone, giving it a PPI of 201 – that’s pretty bad when compared to the 332 of the Lumia 925.
Of course, this trade off must be needed to maintain the bargain price of €220 sim free, and with 4G LTE inside this makes the 625 one of the cheapest 4G smartphones around.
Ireland is still waiting for 4G LTE though, so that point is slightly moot right now.
The display does come with Nokia’s extremely useful “Super Sensitive Touch” enhancement though, meaning you can use it while wearing gloves or with long fingernails etc.
Inside the 625 is a 1.2GHz, Dual Core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with SD Card support and a 2000 mAh battery (the only good thing about the low screen resolution it should result in better battery life).
Camera-wise we’ve got a 5MP rear camera with an LED flash and a VGA front facing camera.
Nokia Smart Cam is included here also, something I couldn’t praise enough in my Lumia 925 review.
The Lumia 625 comes in black, white, yellow, bright green and orange, each changeable if you decide to change your mind.
Expect to see the Lumia 625 in “Q3”.
