Last chance. Nokia is one of Microsoft's most important partners for launching the Windows 8 Phone. The Lumia 920 stands out from the contenders with a unique design, good camera and additional apps. The Finnish company demands 649 Euros (~$860 RRP) for the premium model.
70% Nokia Lumia 925 review: Nokia's first grown-up-looking Windows smartphone
Source: PC Advisor English
The Lumia 925 stands apart from preceding Windows handsets that Nokia styled more for pre-teens, with a slightly more sophisticated metal and grey plastic look. As a piece of phone hardware it’s competently put together, but ultimately is undermined by an aesthetically challenged and unintuitive software interface, while you’ll be lucky to find half the apps you might need to load on it.

Colorful midrange. After Nokia has seemingly assumed a leading role in developing smartphones featuring Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8 operating system, the Finnish manufacturer suits the action to the word through the second model following the Lumia 920. A timeless design meets a decent camera and numerous proprietary apps in the Lumia 820. The manufacturer demands 499 Euros (~$667, RRP) for its new midrange device.

No matter, the Lumia 620 wears its inexpensive Windows Phone credentials on its sleeves. It comes in a range of cheery bright colours, with a selection of coloured cases that you can remove and swap. The build feels mostly plastic and far from premium, but it is what it is and it certainly doesn't suffer from comparison with the BlackBerry Z10.

The somewhat more expensive Lumia 620 has only been available for a short time. But which entry-level model should the buyer opt for?

Nokia Lumia 530 vs 520 comparison review: why the new Windows Phone is worse than the old one

Lumia 520 vs Motorola Moto E comparison review: best cheap smartphones you can buy in the UK in 2014 There is little to choose between the Moto E and the Lumia 520. Indeed, the chief thing to note is that these are both great handsets at a remarkably low price. The Lumia 520 is thinner and lighter, and comes in multiple colours. The Moto E is marginally cheaper and more powerful. And it has a bigger, better display. You will make your own choice, but for us the combination of that display and the greater flexibility of Android makes us choose the Moto E.

Source: PC Advisor English
The Nokia Lumia 520 fits comfortably in the hands. Rounded corners and sides help you to easily operate it in a single hand. Even with a removable rear panel it doesn't creak or flex under pressure, although the build is a touch plasticky and you'll be constantly wiping away greasy fingerprints. It is solid, and you won't need a case to prevent scratches, however.

An ideal first smartphone for those who are willing to part with only £100 or less, the Lumia 520 is a well built inexpensive handset with all the features you need. Indeed, at this price you could consider it a second phone: a robust backup for those times when you don't want to risk your hugely expensive main phone, but you need to be able to contact and interact with the world.

Everything about this smartphone - screen, camera, battery life - is just about good enough to raise it above the usual cheap suspects. And with Nokia’s ace apps and colourful back covers, there are a few added extras that help to explain how the 520 has bagged so many fans around the globe. That said, if Android can get a look-in (which it should), we’re sticking with the Moto G as our afford-a-phone of choice. It’s still the benchmark for budget smartphones and manages to make capable kit such as the Lumia 520 look second best.

The iPhone 5c is Apple's 'budget' phone, but there looks to be very little budget about it (even the price), so comparing it to the Nokia Lumia 520 is a bit unfair as that genuinely is a budget smartphone. The iPhone 5c will obviously be the better smartphone, but its price holds it back a little.

The Nokia Lumia 520, much like its big brother the Nokia Lumia 620, is a jack of all trades and a master of none - although manages to make a good fist of nearly all it tries, for the price. Budding photographers might find the lack of a flash prohibitive and if you're a power user you might want to consider the Huawei Ascend W1 for its superior battery life, but for everyone else the Nokia Lumia 520 comes heartily recommended.

This is the cheapest Windows Phone 8 device you can buy at the moment, a mobile platform that Microsoft has promised to support at least for the next two years. The phone is incredibly well priced at Rs. 10,499 and should attract many of those looking to buy their first smartphones, or students who may be on a tight budget. However, just because the phone is cheap, does that mean it can't live up to our expectations? We find out.

The Nokia Lumia 520 is a great little smartphone. It delivers what Nokia is known for, with good design and build quality, despite the affordable price point. A few hardware shortcuts have been made, knocking out the flash, front camera and NFC, for example, which the slightly more expensive Lumia 620 offers. But at this price there's little to criticise. It's a competent smartphone, delivering the Windows Phone 8 experience aptly, so if you're in the market for a smartphone that won't cost the earth, it's well worthy of consideration. If you have a few pounds more, however, then it's worth looking at the Lumia 620 too.

A well designed and beautifully crafted smartphone, which packs a stunning camera for the price point. Windows Phone 8 is its Achilles heel, however. If you want a good smartphone with above average capabilities basics and don’t want to pay the earth this may well be it.

I began this review saying that, at a glance, the Nokia Lumia 720 looked like the perfect Windows Phone handset. Now, I admit that the phone isn’t perfect- after all, it suffers from some drawbacks including low RAM (that limits the apps you can download) and a low resolution display. But in spite of that, I have no hesitation in saying that the Lumia 720 is a very good phone that’s worth buying if you don’t mind the few drawbacks that it has. If you’re looking for alternatives within the Windows Phone family, you could consider the Nokia Lumia 820 that offers more RAM and a more powerful processor but also costs about Rs. 5,500 more. On the other hand, you could look at the Nokia Lumia 620 that has a smaller display and a less powerful battery but also costs about Rs. 4,000 less. Alternatively, if Windows Phone is not a necessity, look at the Xolo X1000, a very good Android smartphone at around the same price.

The Nokia Lumia 720 is priced at roughly Rs 18,200 and will go head on with the Sony Xperia L and even the Samsung Galaxy Grand. We haven’t reviewed the Xperia L yet, but looking at the specifications, we can safely say that the Lumia 720 is slimmer and lighter, and will have a much better display and battery life. In that respect, the Lumia does make a better buy. The only thing holding us back is the 512MB of RAM, which will restrict you from installing many good apps that would typically need at least 1GB to run. If gaming is not a priority, then it’s still a very good option. For those who don’t mind a bulkier – but more powerful – handset, there’s always the Galaxy Grand for a grand more.

The Lumia 720 is quite a looker and comes in variety of bold colours. Its multimedia performance and screen are very good. It has got enough firepower to offer fluid WP8 experience. However, it's the camera's outstanding low-light performance that sets it apart from the crowd. Both the Lumia 720 and its rival HTC 8S are available for Rs 17,900. However, be it camera, display, or exclusive apps, the 720 come across as a better deal.

The Nokia Lumia 928 is a minor improvement over the Lumia 920, which we already thought was a solid Windows Phone 8 device. The improvements Nokia made with the Lumia 928 are slight and certainly make this a better device, but still not enough to earn our “excellent” rating as we still aren’t big fans of the device’s physical button layout, and the Windows Phone 8 Marketplace still has yet to catch up with Android and iOS in regards to providing must-have applications.

The Nokia Lumia 928 is a painful reminder of the miserable state of Windows Phone. While the handset boasts a few improvements over the Lumia 920, the Lumia 928 lacks a must-have feature that isn't already done better on competing platforms. The phone's $100 price tag and lower-light photography capabilities will be enough to pique the interest of some more budget-minded buyers, but the Lumia 928's overall raw mediocrity and lack of third-party apps keeps it from being truly memorable.

The Verizon Nokia Lumia 928 will cost you $99 USD with a 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate – that’s less than half the cost of some of the higher-end competitors on the carrier today (like the Samsung GALAXY S 4 and the Galaxy Note II), and essentially equal to that of the Samsung Galaxy S III. It’s also equal to the price of the Windows Phone 8X from HTC, a device that was released several months ago that we reviewed as well. If you’re going for tactile feeling alone, you might want the HTC device – otherwise I’d stick by the Nokia hardware for basically everything else.

While still on the heavy side, the updated design makes for a sleeker, easier-to-manage device. We also applaud the new camera apps and improved audio quality, as well as the brighter AMOLED display.

The Nokia Lumia 521 isn’t the nicest Windows Phone 8 device on the market – and it’s certainly not the hottest Nokia machine out today – but it’s not meant to be. Working to be the cost-cutting entry level to the Windows Phone 8 universe with the good ship Nokia – that’s the aim. That’s what this machine will do, too – expect quite a few upgrades to higher-powered Lumia devices once the 521 is paid for in full by users on T-Mobile.

The Lumia 521 is an entry-level Windows Phone that offers a lot for much less than other devices. For just $129 (without a contract), shoppers get an attractive and compact design, a capable camera and a user-friendly interface that will please smartphone newbies. Nokia did sacrifice some features -- such as LTE support, a high-res screen and a front-facing camera -- to achieve such an aggressive price.

Nokia Lumia 925

Windows Phone OS 8 is trailing behind the other giants of the industry. The Nokia Lumia 925 is the latest offering that comes with it. It is a good looking phone, with its slim design and premium feeling aluminum along the sides. It is light, and the soft touch finish that lines the plastic back of this device gives it a pleasant grip. Overall, the Nokia Lumia 925 is solidly built and well designed. There is plenty to like about this phone, from its loveable camera that will take absolutely fantastic images to the numerous free apps that Nokia have preinstalled that are truly a delight. Nokia Maps and Drive+ provide turn-by-turn voice navigation in 95 countries. The 4.5 inch ClearBlack AMOLED WXGA display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels is brilliant. The battery life is great, lasting one day with moderate use, and the speaker volume allows notifications to easily be heard when in a pocket or nearby bag.

The performance feels decent enough with normal use, but the Nokia features the outdated dual-core Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz processor. Considering the quad-core CPUs are spreading in the Android world at the moment, this puts it behind the competition. Another downside is its OS. Window Phone 8 just does not have the sheer range of apps available to match up to other mobile operating systems. At the end of the day, this phone will only be the right choice if you do not mind that a Windows 8 Phone does not really have a huge variety of apps available.

Night owl. Not even one year has passed between the release of Nokia's Lumia 920 and its successor, the Lumia 925. Supposedly, the already great camera has seen further improvements. In addition, Nokia's Windows Phone flagship has been slimmed down and equipped with an AMOLED screen. A simple facelift or an example of successful evolution?

The Lumia 925 improves on most aspects of the Lumia 920, which was already the best high-end Windows Phone 8 handset. We like the new, semi-metal chassis, the screen is superb and Nokia continues to impress with its innovative apps. If you're set on Windows Phone 8 this is the handset to buy, but, as with the 920, a lacklustre camera holds it back from an award.

Overall, the Nokia Lumia 925 is a capable, high-end smartphone that’s enjoyable to use. It crams core components from the Lumia 920 into a slimmer, lighter body, and has an improved camera along with fun extra features. We can’t, however, recommend a phone with battery life this poor, no matter how much we like it. And with its minimal changes over the 920, we can’t recommend it as an upgrade to its predecessor, despite the lighter, sleeker design.

With that said, we still enjoyed our time with the Lumia 925 as it felt quick and responsive for the most part, its screen offered some really impressive visuals and some of the included software, such as Nokia Smart Cam and HERE Maps, can easily compete with similar included software available on iOS and Android devices. The Windows Phone 8 platform is still not as widely adopted as iOS and Android, but things are slowly getting better, so keep that in mind if you’re seriously considering the Lumia 925.

In times when Samsung is criticised for its lack of design innovations and Apple is too cautious to experiment, Nokia has come up with yet another beautiful handset that looks nothing like the 920 or 928. The Lumia 925 ticks all the right boxes in terms of multimedia and productivity. The phone sports a fantastic screen and hard-to-beat camera. In 925, Nokia hasn’t just used Carl Zeiss lens to strengthen the specs sheet, but has actually taken advantage of it with cleverly designed apps. Thus proving that there are other ways to innovate and differentiate than just increasing the screen size or putting faster processors. All in all, it’s a top-notch phone, priced rightly at Rs 32,000.

The Nokia Lumia 925 is undeniably a great phone in its own right, but it's just not a big enough improvement over the Nokia Lumia 920 for there to be any reason to buy it if you own last year's model. Even if you don't, you might be better off buying the Nokia Lumia 920, since it's substantially cheaper at around £330/US$400/AU$420 SIM-free. Some call Windows Phone refreshing, but it does still come with limitations and lacks a certain fluidity that Nokia hasn't managed to fix with the Lumia 925. This is a good phone, sure, but as a flagship we need to have our socks blown off, and at last check they were still firmly on our feet.

The Nokia Lumia 925 is a newer, lighter, thinner flagship from the Finnish company, which houses pretty much the same insides as the Lumia 920. We take a look at what's different about the phone, what's the same all in an attempt to answer the question of whether it's worth upgrading to or not.

Nokia makes some stellar, well-built phones, and the 925 is no different than the rest of the gang. With its thinner design, high-resolution screen, and excellent camera capabilities, it’s a solid choice. It doesn't have one special feature to make it stand apart from its other siblings, other than the fact that it’s exclusively available at T-Mobile.

All the improvements that Nokia has made with the Lumia 925 still make it a good recommendation for those wanting a change from Android or iOS, and a no-brainer versus the rest of the high-end Windows Phone competition including Nokia’s own Lumia 920. But if you’re after a device with the absolute latest in technology in a polished, well-rounded package, it may be wiser to explore elsewhere.

Nokia has improved its flagship Lumia in most departments, with a better screen and slimmer, lighter design that’s just as affordable as high-end rivals. It’s not the best when it comes to demanding task though, but the real issue comes away from the mains – its battery life is just too poor to recommend.

The Nokia Lumia 925 is by far the best smartphone the brand has made yet, and of course that’s the conundrum one always faces when reviewing a Windows Phone 8 handset. Thanks to the camera, design and screen the Lumia 925 could well be afive-star product, however the inclusion of Windows Phone 8 does dampen the mood slightly due to the fact that while the app situation is improving the operating system itself is in need of some innovation.

Nokia Lumia 925: The best Windows Phone yet
Source: Reg Hardware English
Nokia’s answer to the Three Flagship Puzzle is that “it’s a different expression of what we delivered in the 920” – a reasonable description of bringing last year’s advanced technology to something most people can live with comfortably. It’s a whole lot more sleek and stylish than anything Nokia has produced since switching to Windows Phone, and classier than its plasticky-feeling rivals too.

With Smart Camera coming to the rest of the Lumia range sharpish, this headline feature is no reason to fork out for the top of the range Lumia 925. But the new lighter, easier to handle design certainly is. Not only that but six months on from our Lumia 920 review and the Windows Phone 8 store is now much stronger in terms of its app line-up, so many of those crucial gaps, which might once have made app addicts waver, are being taken care of.

The Nokia Lumia 925 marks a slight change in direction for the Lumia series, adopting metal rather than sticking to series-staple polycarbonate. But otherwise it’s Lumia through and through, with a camera that offers unusually good low light performance, a phone that runs like a dream and bodywork that both looks and feels great.

It’s clear from the off: the Nokia Lumia 925 is the best model in Nokia’s range, and the best Windows Phone 8 device today. The design may have lost some of the colorful whimsy of its Lumia 920 cousin, but it has gained even better build quality, premium hand-feel, and handsome looks. The display is superb, performance the best we’ve seen with Microsoft’s platform, and the bundle of apps and services Nokia throws in continues to make for excellent value.

Lots of changes, but not much difference

Nokia has fixed several of the biggest complaints leveled at the Lumia 920. In fact, the Lumia 925 feels like a Windows Phone pitched at people who think they're going to buy an Android phone next. The colors and design are more understated; the hardware is thinner and lighter, and arguably just as impressive as the HTC One or the iPhone.

Nokia Lumia 1020

The mother ship of all camera phones has arrived with a stunning 41 megapixel camera. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is the closest any smartphone has come to replacing the need for a point-and-shoot camera. Surprisingly, the device could probably pass off for any other ordinary device. The main difference lies in the 1.75 inch camera module with a wide xenon flash that sticks out half an inch. The device does not lie flat on its back, which is actually quite nice because the screen is propped up when it is on a table making it easy to keep an eye out for notifications. It's also surprising how it does not make the device uncomfortable to hold, or to keep in pockets.

It is very noticeable that the device is much heavier than most other devices out there. It is solid and well built with a durable polycarbonate body and Gorilla Glass 3 screen. The 4.5 inch 1280x768 AMOLED screen is beautiful and super sensitive, which means that it can be operated with fingernails or gloves on. While the specs list 41 megapixels, the reality is much more confusing - the settings involved in actually utilizing the potential of this device is not for the casual user. For the more initiated, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will turn out better images than any other smartphone out there. While camera-centric users will find delight in this device, those who are just looking for an allround smartphone will not find anything to shout about here. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is targeted at a niche market, and at the moment it has no competitors.

Camera or phone? With an almost absurd resolution of 41 megapixels, the Lumia 1020 ridicules the entire competition. The rest of the specs, however, have remained almost unchanged when compared to the Lumia 925. Whether its high amount of pixels remains the only advantage of the Finnish smartphone, our review will show.

The Lumia 1020 launched in the UK back in September 2013, but there's still nothing like it out there. The 41-megapixel camera really makes this phone stand out and is a major reason to buy it over any other smartphone. As it is now been superseeded by newer, shinier things you can also pick the Lumia 1020 up on the cheap. At the time of writing Orange has it on a 24 month contract with 1,000 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data for £27.99 per month, with no extra charge for the handset.

The QX10 has an obvious advantage here because you can look at the camera and line up a very good selfie or group portrait. The other images use the front-facing cameras which are significantly smaller and not as good. You could use the rear camera but it's harder that way.

The Lumia 1020 has the same 4.5in, 1,280x720 AMOLED screen as the Lumia 925, which is one of the best mobile screens there is, as well as the same dual-core 1.5GHz processor; Windows Phone flies on this handset, and a hugely quick score of 913ms in the Sunspider JavaScript benchmark shows complicated web pages are not a problem. As with any Windows Phone handset, you need to consider whether the platform does what you need; it's slick and great-looking, but not as flexible as Android and still doesn’t have as great a choice of apps, although the situation is improving.

Nokia’s best price for the Lumia 1020 is Rs 47,222 but we have seen it going for lesser online. Despite the brilliant camera, good battery life and excellent build – it’s still way too expensive to be recommended. Given how the prices of other Lumias have dropped drastically, we predict a similar price drop heading for the 1020 as well in order to make room for the newer phones, expected next year. If priced under Rs 35,000, we say go ahead and take the plunge as it’s certainly more compact and classier than the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Plus, you’ll also have access to some really cool apps like Nokia Refocus. Anything above the price though and you’re better off with a Sony Xperia Z1 or a LG G2.

The Lumia 1020 is undoubtedly the best camera phone in the market. Not just the great optics, but Nokia has done an excellent job with the camera software. Apart from that, it flaunts an excellent screen, great sound quality, sturdy construction, and a bunch of productivity apps including Microsoft Office suite. It’s also refreshing to see a manufacturer bringing something unique to the table, when most companies are busy putting absurdly powerful chips and gigantic screens on their phones. On the other hand, there are a few annoyances such as three seconds of shot-to-shot time and relatively low count of games. All in all, the 1020 is a premium smartphone with an extraordinary camera that fits in your pocket. To get great results though, you’ll have to let your creativity run loose and be ready to experiment a lot.

The Lumia 1020 is built on a hardware platform that has established itself to work rather well with the Windows Phone 8 operating system, as we have seen in the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 925. What is somewhat of a bomb feature about the phone is the PureView camera, which is sluggish despite the 2GB of RAM, but does take good photos. Regardless, if you're a stickler for image quality and want a good, slim, powerful camera in your pockets, then the Nokia Lumia 1020 should be your number one consideration, at least as far as phones go.

Even better, unlike its predecessor the 808 Pureview, the 1020 also stands up as pretty decent phone in its own right, with the slew of Nokia innovations doing a stellar job of showcasing all the positive points of Windows Phone. However, costing a hefty £550 SIM-free the phone comes with a premium price tag that is sure to put most businesses of mass rollouts.

On top of that it's mighty expensive - at least in the US. Perhaps Nokia will surprise us and launch it for less in the UK, but we reckon that's highly unlikely. That will leave the much more affordable Lumia 925 as the Windows Phone of choice for most people looking to inject live-tile loveliness into their smartphone life. For the camera geek elite, though, the Lumia 1020 is well worth the stretch.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 faces an uphill battle: Not only is it competing against heavyweights such as the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5, but it is also fighting against the stigma surrounding the Windows Phone OS. The Lumia 1020 is an excellent phone with one of the best all-around cameras out there, but its AT&T exclusivity and older hardware make it a hard sell. If you’re an AT&T customer who has been curious about Windows Phone, I strongly urge you to pick up the Lumia 1020. For everyone else, you’ll have to ask yourself whether a fancy camera and the struggling Windows Phone ecosystem are enough to break your contract over.

It’s clear that the Lumia 1020 isn’t for everyone. The size of the phone, although considerably improved over the 808, is still more of a pocket-filler than the flagships running iOS and Android, and while the PureView system itself is impressive, not everybody needs the flexibility that it offers. It’s that, more than anything, that keeps the Nokia Lumia 1020 in its niche position. Stomach the intermittent pauses and the PureView camera system is incredible, but everyday users convinced by Windows Phone might find the Lumia 925 offers a better balance of optics, usability, and design. Nonetheless, when PureView delivers, it’s hard not to be charmed by Nokia’s photography obsession.

Nokia Lumia 625

Despite 4.7-inch display, the Nokia Lumia 625 is one of the slimmest Lumia smartphones. The devices appears quite complete and like it cannot be beaten. The back is covered in a non-slip polycarbonate providing a secure grip for its users. On the front, it is covered Corning Gorilla Glass 2. The back cover comes in five different interchangeable colors and once removed, there is a 200mAh non-removable battery, a micro-Sim and a microSD port which comes in handy due to its tiny built-in memory. Windows 8 is pre-installed on the 8 GB internal memory. So only 4.7GB are available to the user. There are three capacitive buttons on the front, the usual Back, Home and Bing buttons found on all Windows Phone devices. On the side, there are a volume rocker, power button, and a camera button.

The Lumia 625 features all basic functions such as Bluetooth 4.0, WLAN 802.11b/g/n receiver, and a GPS receiver. Despite being a low-priced device, the Lumia 625 comes with LTE capabilities commonly found in high-end devices these days. The 4.7-inch display has a resolution of 480x800 pixels, which is good enough for this price tag. This particular Lumia device features the older Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8930, a 1.2 Ghz dual-core SoC. This processor caters well above the needs of a regular user. So, performance is good and the Lumia 625 is brilliant at multitasking. On the downside is the 5 megapixels rear camera, which is far from what you would get from a proper smartphone. Apart from that, the supply of apps in the Windows Store is also a major issue that cripples not only the Lumia 625, but all Windows phones. From a value for money perspective, the Lumia 625 still sits far above all its Android counterparts.

The new mid-range. No matter if entry-level or high-end smartphone - Nokia always has the right model in its Lumia series. The newest member of the family is the Lumia 625. Online retailers already sell the mid-range model for the competitive price of 250 Euros (~$334).

It's hard to recommend the Lumia 625 especially since you have a great device such as the Lumia 720 available at a cheaper price. If you want to purchase a device under 20k running the Windows Phone OS, the Lumia 720 is a better package deal. If a large screen device is what you want, you have smartphones such as the Canvas Doodle 2, Xolo Q1000S and more at your disposal. Pick up the Lumia 625 if you're specifically looking for a large-screened WP smartphone.

Nokia Lumia 625: Quality budget 4G phone ... but where's UK's budget 4G?
Source: Reg Hardware English
There's plenty to like about the Lumia 625; another budget Nokia without the budget compromises that make Landfill Android™ cheapies such a rotten experience. But until the networks step up and offer 4G on a budget, it's going to be in that curious spot. But right now, the consumer proposition is this: if you want 4G, you have to pay a premium, and if you're paying a premium, you want a bit of diamond on your ring.

While the MRP of the Lumia 625 is Rs 19, 999, you can find it online at varying price points depending on the colour you pick. We feel this is an expensive price for the phone especially since all you're getting is a larger screen, without any increase in resolution and important features which have been sacrificed. We would recommend the Lumia 720 over the 625 any day for its better display, NFC, better front and rear camera - all of this in a lighter and much more compact body. There's even support for wireless charging for those who want to get the most out of their Lumia device.

So, does Nokia need another budget Lumia? Well, yes. We get what the company was trying to achieve with the Lumia 625: 4G on a shoestring. In that respect, mission accomplished. We can't help but feel, though, that Nokia hasn't quite nailed the niche that it set out to, leaving space for a similar budget offering that's LTE-capable, and better executed.

It’s easy to be impressed with the Nokia Lumia 625 thanks to its colourful, replaceable shells, stellar performance and great build quality. The qualms with Windows Phone 8 are still lingering, though this could easily be sorted with a few high profile app release. We can even forgive the middling, low-res screen just because the device is priced at the low-end of the market. If you’re looking for a cheap, smooth running first smartphone, you can’t go wrong this latest addition to the Lumia line.

Considering the 625's super affordable price, it is quite a decent phone, and buyers on a budget are unlikely to find a better deal anytime soon. This, combined with the fact that Nokia only recently released the even more affordable 520 and mid-tier 720 means we can't really see the 625 enticing too many new users to the Windows Phone ecosystem. Still for those on a shoestring budget looking for a big screen 4G smartphone, it remains a solid option.

Nokia Lumia 1520

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is the very first Nokia and Windows phablet. Its impressive specs consist of 6 inch full HD LCD scree, a 2.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and a 20 MP camera. As expected, performance is zippy and smooth, with a snappy web browsing experience. Unfortunately, one has to use the Internet Explorer, which is not a selling point at all. Even opening the camera app (which tends to cause a lot of devices to lag) is smooth sailing. The microSD slot allows you to add up to 64 GB to the on-board storage of 32-GB, making it perfect a travel multimedia device.

The camera includes optical image stabilization and the device is able to output RAW files, which could be a draw for those who want to edit images for a more professional edge on their photos. There is a nifty little app called Storyteller, which enables users to create a story tied to locations on a map. Of course, this is one of those novelty selling points which may not necessarily be used much. The design of the device is lovely with clean lines and bright color options. Surprisingly, this 6 inch device manages to match up to the best on the market. Of course, the fact that it runs the Windows OS may have some people dead set against it, but this is a great device that deserves consideration.

The 1520 is the biggest, most powerful Windows Phone to date, and continues Nokia’s legacy of pushing the Windows Phone envelope. While it might not have the large sensor of the Lumia 1020, its camera is still hugely impressive, producing shots that are good enough to lay your compact cam to rest. Its huge 6in screen is superbly bright and clear, even in daylight, and Windows Phone 8 runs faster than a jetpack-wearing cheetah.

As mentioned earlier, the only and biggest problem with this phone is its size. Had Nokia fused this hardware with a 4.5" screen, it would have been a killer phone. But, the current screen size is not everyone's cup of tea. So if you're looking for a Windows Phone, the Lumia 1020 and 925 are better options, unless you give too much importance to specs. For "phablet" lovers, it's going to be a tough call between the 1520 and Note 3. We believe that if the built quality and camera are you priorities, go for the 1520. On the other hand, if you like the idea of using stylus, the Note 3 is the way to go.

To sum up, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is the best Nokia smartphone in the market right now and if you’re into ‘phablets’, then this is easily one of the best out there. It has great aesthetics, a solid spec sheet and some very cool apps from Nokia. Now, if we could only have a Lumia 1520 ‘Mini’ for the rest of us with regular sized hands; that would be splendid.

Personally, I’d recommend neither the 1520 nor the 1020 at their current price point, as they are too expensive when you consider what the competition has to offer. If you only look at a specific aspect, like imaging for instance, then these phones are easily the best in the market. But as an overall package, the Android offerings are simply better. I hate to bring this up again but you simply can’t ignore the fact that Windows Phone apps still have a lot of catching up to do, compared to Android and iOS. That’s not to say there aren’t good apps, just not enough.

While Nokia’s colorful unibody design feels great to hold and overall the phone is quite ergonomic for the size, the handset is certainly massive and could be quite cumbersome in unaccustomed hands. I can’t help but feel the device would appeal to a wider audience if it was smaller. A 5-inch handset with the same internals could well be a killer Windows Phone. The Lumia 1520 is definitely the best Windows Phone I’ve used so far. It can be a hard sell up against a seasoned contender like the Note 3, but there’s no doubting that Nokia keeps improving delivering yet another high-end quality handset.

If you want a Windows Phone with a supersized high-resolution screen, this is currently the only game in town. Nokia is the only manufacturer truly committed to Windows Phone, and with its acquisition by Microsoft now complete, it's unlikely that any other company will bother developing such a device. The Lumia 1520 retails for roughly the same street price as the Lumia 1020, and both could be described as flagships of the line, depending on your priorities. The 1020's camera is simply unbeatable, and is the only thing keeping the 1520 from dominating the specifications charts in every category. However, the 1520's screen and nearly all its internal components are a generation ahead of the 1020's. So this is easily the most powerful Windows Phone we've ever used, but does that make it a great phone? We're hesitant to make a recommendation. If you love giant phones, there are quite a few Android options with screens and hardware that match the Lumia 1520, and they have the benefit of better optimised software and a far more substantial library of apps. If you love Windows Phone, there are cheaper options. The Lumia 1520 does stand out when it comes to its camera and looks, but you'd have to be pretty passionate about either of those things to spend close to Rs. 50,000 on this phone.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is as good a phablet as Windows Phone could ever offer, make no mistake. On the shop shelf, it’s a far more attractive option than the banal plastic Galaxy Note 3, but as ever, it’s let down by Microsoft’s software, which offers no real reason to exist on a screen so larger. If Nokia could have worked in dual-screen app support or even just a stylus for those with smaller fingers, they’d be on to a winner: as it stands, anyone with the hands to hold a phablet will find Samsung’s entrant far more productive.

Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which ups the phablet game with its stylus and pen-friendly software tweaks, the Lumia 1520 is a simpler device; a Windows Phone 8 handset with a very big, high-resolution screen. It’s a combination that works, though; the Lumia 1520 is fast, beautifully made and has a good screen, so if you fancy a phone/tablet hybrid with Windows Phone 8's advantages of super-fast performance and arguably the best-looking interface out there, it's the handset to buy. However, if you're not set on a particular operating system, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 remains a more versatile handset with a larger selection of apps in the Google Play store.

There's a lot to love about the Nokia Lumia 1520, from the gorgeous display, to the precision-designed shell and the fantastic photos taken by the camera. Yet, it just doesn't use the full potential of having 6 inches of screen to play with - making everything bigger is simply not a solution. We'd have loved to see a stylus, or something unique that you wouldn't get on a regular-sized device, but, sadly, nothing like that is here.

Despite the Lumia 1520’s thinner profile and top-notch specifications, I wouldn’t recommend it as your first Windows Phone device. It’s too big for any phone, and Nokia’s participation in the large-phone craze is just another indication that it’s playing catch-up, not leading. This isn’t something I’d expect from the company that helped to make cell phones the household items they are today. I remember lusting after the 3310 way back when, and I know that the designers at Nokia still have it in ’em to inspire that kind of desire in consumers. They just need to be smarter and more aware of what’s a trend (cameras!) and what’s a gimmick (giant phones!).

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review
Source: Slashgear English
There’s a big market for big phones. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and its predecessors have shown us that, and the gradually increasing size of the average flagship handset’s display suggests the rest of the market has caught on. The Lumia 1520 has seen Nokia jump ahead in terms of screen real-estate, and the display itself is a real winner. For the moment, there’s no other Windows Phone that offers the same power and display resolution as the Lumia 1520. Give it some time, though, and other devices will catch up, leaving the key reason to opt for the 6-inch Nokia being its vast screen. Some will consider that reason enough to buy, but anybody hoping for the flexibility of a true phablet may discover the Lumia 1520 is simply a bigger version of handsets that came before it, not necessarily a better one.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a very good phone, but it's not for everyone. Its size accounts for most of that, as it's large even by 'large phone' standards and heavier than some people will tolerate. The camera isn't a total success, either, despite the very good image quality.

As far as a Windows Phone 8 device, the Lumia 1520 may not be one of our favorites, but it’s a device that is a welcomed addition to the phablet world. Its large 6-inch 1080p display is downright impressive and will keep your eyes very happy with whatever it is you’re viewing on it. We still wish Nokia would figure out how to make their line of Lumia devices charge within a reasonable amount of time as well as not be so difficult to grip when attempting to type on their devices, but this is certainly areas that we could learn to live with considering just how much goodness the Lumia 1520 offers.

Nokia Lumia 1520 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comparison review: specifications and price
Source: PC Advisor English
In some ways (not least of which is that we’ve not got our hands on the 1520) it’s too early to give concrete buying advice. However, on the other hand, the fact that the Note 3 runs Android is a big advantage over the Lumia 1520 which runs Windows Phone 8. Both phablets have good cameras, but each has different strengths and weaknesses. With very similar processors, neither will disappoint when it comes to performance. We’ll update this review once we’ve fully tested out the Lumia 1520.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 possesses a specs sheet to rival the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z1, and what’s more, the overall package feels bang on the mark from first use. In a market of super-sized, super-speced smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 1520 has brought the Finnish manufacturer back into the race. While we require more time with the device before we can pass final judgement, on first impressions we are highly impressed with this 6-inch beast and look forward to spending more time with the device shortly.

What's Nokia done here? Made something that we can't criticise from the spec sheet alone? The answer has to be yes: the CPU, screen, design and expansion offerings are all the things we've been gagging to see for months, if not years. The extra apps are standard fare from the firm: bringing user upgrades in a way that delivers actual performance… we're actually quite intrigued by Storyteller as an app, although it can be a little cumbersome to use.

More light! Nokia's first and last tablet with Windows RT 8.1 has an incredibly bright display, a fast processor and the ability to access the Internet via LTE -- but it also has some unusual weaknesses. The software and camera are no more than average, and the manufacturing quality is not exactly up to par either. We expected more from a company who was once a mobile communications pioneer.

A great piece of hardware limited by the Windows RT operating system. The Lumia 2520 packs a beautiful design, top display and 4G connectivity on the. But Windows interface holds the tablet back from competing with Android and iOS counterparts. With reports suggesting that Windows RT could be ditched in the near future, can’t recommend this device.

Source: Gadget Show English
Nokia's top-notch hardware is let down by Microsoft's lacklustre Windows 8.1, which still falls short as a tablet OS. There's still an alarming lack of dedicated apps, and the awkward touch-screen navigation of its desktop mode is begging for a mouse or stylus. We want to love the Lumia 2520, as its bright and cheerful glossy polycarbonate body is a zesty alternative to Microsoft's own drab and dreary Surface - but Windows RT 8.1 as a tablet OS still falls flat. Maybe next time?

If you’re looking for a portable device purely for web browsing and Microsoft Office, the Nokia Lumia 2520 is a good buy. The Microsoft Surface 2 is cheaper, but we think the extra cost is justified given the Lumia 2520’s integrated 4G, faster processor and better battery life. Windows RT is still an awkward middle ground between desktop and mobile operating systems, but if you’re willing to give Windows RT a chance there’s no doubt the Lumia 2520 is the best device to try it on.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a solid first stab at a tablet for Nokia and would have won plaudits had it been released a year or two ago. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite match up to the best new tablets recently released by Amazon or Apple and it isn’t quite as flexible as the Surface 2 – that is until the keyboard goes on sale. In addition, Windows RT and the Windows Store just don’t offer the same ease of use and app selection as you will find on Android and iOS.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a seriously impressive piece of kit. While we're still not enamoured with Windows RT, Nokia's done a great job showcasing all the OS' positive aspects, while simultaneously adding a few of its own. This combined with its great battery life, 4G connectivity and better than average display make it one of the best Windows RT tablets we've experienced. However, as is the case with all Windows tablets, we're a bit disappointed Nokia hasn't bundled the 2520 with an attachable keyboard. The lack of a keyboard makes taking advantage of the 2520's Office features a little tricky and does hamper its overall enterprise appeal.

Despite our reservations over Windows RT, there's no denying that this is a top-quality piece of hardware. It isn't the best tablet around, but the Lumia 2520 delivers faster performance and better battery life, with a higher quality display than the Surface 2, and includes 4G as standard. For only £41 more – it looks like a bargain.

If you’re happy with the Lumia body, there’s lot to love about the 2520, which injects some much needed fun into Windows tablets. It’s lighter and more compact than the Surface 2 with a punchier Full HD screen, better battery life, 4G and excellent Nokia apps. The flawed Windows RT OS is just too much for us to live with but if you can trade creative apps for the Office suite and plump for the Power Keyboard, it could just work. Then again, full-fat Windows 8 tablets that aren’t limited to the Store, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, offer full-fat Windows 8 and can be picked up from £450.

This is one of the best tablets yet built, thanks to Nokia's swish and tactile design that fits the hand splendidly, a size that is conducive to on-the-move usage and an elegant implementation of the Windows RT 8.1 OS. Sure, the RT bit means you can't put just any old program on it, and the Windows Store needs to fill some of its bigger gaps, but this is a highly capable, versatile device.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a pretty good Windows RT tablet, but that makes it second best in a category of only two new devices. The Microsoft Surface 2, our Windows RT tablet Editors' Choice, keeps the title thanks to Microsoft's complimentary services and the flexibility afforded by a full-size USB port. But while the Lumia 2520 has a few drawbacks, the biggest liability is Windows RT—there are better options available that give you either a richer selection of apps, like the Apple iPad Air, or run the full version of Windows, like the Asus Transformer Book T100TA.

a good Windows tablet, not the best for typing
Source: Engadget English
Considering the Lumia 2520 is Nokia's first Windows tablet, the company produced a strong product its first time out. Because it's so lightweight, the 2520 is easier to use in tablet mode than the Surface 2, and that stunning 665-nit display makes the experience even sweeter. Add to that long battery life, a high-quality camera and some generous pricing ($499 with LTE and 32GB of storage), and it's pretty clear Nokia did good.

And that’s exactly what Microsoft needs right now: some energy in its mobile portfolio.

Nokia needed a tablet. It took its time with the Lumia 2520, and in many places that consideration shows. The decisions to go with a more usable display and a fast-charging system do make sense for what’s billed as a tablet for work and play, and while the absence of a WiFi-only model does mean there’s no low-cost model, you have to give Nokia some credit for sticking to its connectivity guns.

The Lumia 2520 is a powerful Windows 8 tablet that can last for hours upon hours on a single charge. Its simple yet beautiful design is one that will certainly stand out among other Windows 8 tablets, especially its Full HD 1080p display. There isn’t much holding back the Lumia 2520, except for something like a USB port, which could be helpful for those who want to be able to access external hard drives or SD cards on their Windows 8 tablet. Other than that, we can’t praise the Lumia 2520 enough. If you’re in the market for a powerful Windows 8 machine that will probably last much longer than a typical work day, then the Lumia 2520 is what you’ve been looking for.

The Lumia 525 is a small, affordable phone with a surprisingly decent camera and plenty of attitude, but not much else going for it. When held up to similarly priced Android phones, it's hard to make a case in favour of Windows Phone, which is why Nokia has capitalised on looks and ease of use. If you're looking for the most powerful phone available for around Rs. 10,000, this is not it. You'd be better off with Lenovo's A706, for example. However there is one very clear market for the Lumia 525: first-time smartphone users. If you're graduating from feature phone (Nokia or otherwise) and are looking for a phone that will let you browse the Web, take good photos and use Facebook or WhatsApp easily and in style, this phone is a pretty decent option.

At these price points the Lumia 525 simply isn’t worth it. The entry-level smartphone has a decent design that has aged well, but nevertheless packs year-old hardware that’s starting to compare unfavorably againt other budget minded competitors. The Snapdragon S4 MSM8227 SoC isn’t cut out for web browsing, and it was superseded by the Snapdragon 400 six months ago. The camera is mediocre at best, while battery life and display quality are just passable. If you’re thinking about buying the Lumia 525, there are two much better options to take than forking out $160 for this entry-level handset. The Motorola Moto G will set you back $179, just $20 more, and packs a much more impressive set of hardware; or you can pick up the Lumia 520 for as low as $69, which is essentially the same as the Lumia 525 and still a fantastic buy at that price point.

The Nokia Lumia 525 is priced at Rs 10,399, which is roughly Rs 2,300 more than the Lumia 520. Considering nothing much has changed apart from the higher capacity RAM, it feels slightly expensive. However, the free Gameloft bundle worth Rs 2,000 somewhat makes up for this premium. We sincerely hope that Nokia drops the price once this offer expires as it doesn’t make sense paying this premium without the free games.

The Lumia 525 is available for Rs 10,200. If you’re not bothered about a front-facing camera and LED flash, the 525 is the best sub-10k phone in the market. There’s no Android phone in this price segment that can offer such fluid user-experience, camera interface, maps and navigation. The phone costs Rs 1700 more than the 520. This obviously leads to a question as to which phone is a better buy? The answer is that if you enjoy gaming, you should go ahead with the 525 as it not only comes with upgraded RAM, but also Rs 2000 worth free games. Otherwise, it makes sense to get the Lumia 520 and save a few hundred rupees.

A fresh phablet. Pursuing the Lumia 1520, Nokia sends another 6-inch phablet featuring HD resolution and Windows Phone 8 into the race, called the Lumia 1320. Its power and configuration are no match for the premium model, but it is nevertheless a strong smartphone.

Ultimately, I just couldn't work out where to stick the Lumia 1320. (Readers will no doubt tell me where). Encasing it in a book-style flip case just seemed to make it even more gargantuan. I could leave it in a reporter's bag (leather, John Lewis - heavier than anything that ever goes in it) - but I prefer not to, I miss too many calls and I would rather have something so basic within easier reach.

The Nokia Lumia 1320 is a great mid-range Windows phablet. While the camera's by far its weakest point, it's a superb alternative to the considerably more expensive Lumia 1520 and we greatly prefer it to other Android phablets such as the HTC One Max and Samsung Galaxy Mega. If you're not fussed about taking pictures then the 1320's great screen and excellent battery life is just the thing for surfing the web and watching films and TV on the move, all without breaking the bank.

If you like a big phone, but don't want to spend too much money, this is a highly attractive handset. Screen resolution is not tip top, but more than adequate and the Nokia benefits of easy readability in bright sunshine or being usable through gloves means the phone is good to use in summer and winter. Nokia's usual app extras that handle mapping and music are as impressive as ever, and the camera effects are neat and enjoyable. The camera may only be 5MP resolution, but it takes good photos. The Windows Phone app store is still much weaker than Apple and Android rivals, but it's catching up fast in terms of key titles. Still, if you have a particular favourite it's worth checking if it or something similar is available.

The Nokia Lumia 1320 is positioned as budget alternative to the all-powerful Nokia Lumia 1520, but there's a problem. The Nokia Lumia 1520 has dropped in price significantly, making the 1320 seem surplus to requirements. Comparisons aside, it's an extremely hefty phone that lacks Nokia's usual design flair, with a workmanlike plastic construction that's prone to creaking. This middle-of-the road feeling continues with its underwhelming processor, average camera, and lack of any stand-out software that really marks the Lumia 1320 out as unique.

Nokia’s Lumia 1320 is an all-round decent smartphone, especially when its sub-£300 price tag is taken into consideration. But we found it difficult to get too excited about the handset. While affordable, the handset’s low-resolution screen and average camera means users are unlikely to opt for the Lumia 1320 when they can buy a Nexus 5, for example, with top-end specs for the same low price and many more applications on offer. However, for businesses in the Microsoft eco-system, this could be a valid option for a low-cost smartphone.

If you're a fan of Windows Phone and want a large screen, you have a choice between the Lumia 1320 and the more compelling 1520 which costs twice as much. If you're primarily a fan of Windows Phone, the 1320 is the best bet in its price range, but you could also consider the more pocketable Lumia 925, which has a far better camera and costs roughly Rs. 6,000 more. However, this phone doesn't compare too favourably to its Android-based competition, most notably the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2, which costs almost exactly the same amount. The Grand 2 benefits from the strength of the Google Play app store, and Nokia can't balance that out with its camera expertise at this price level, like it did with the Lumia 1520.

The Nokia Lumia 1320’s the best value big-screened Windows Phone around, no question - and unless you really need a top notch camera, it’s better value for money than the 1520 too. But it’s not the best best value smartphone around, not when Google’s 4G-infused Nexus 5 goes for the same amount on contract, packs a sharper screen and many, many more apps. So long as Nokia’s Lumia line sticks to Windows Phone, that’s sadly always going to be the case - fingers crossed that might change quite soon.

At a retail price of Rs 24,000, the Lumia 1320 is simply too expensive to consider. The highlight feature is of course the battery life and the fact that you can now install pretty much any app without a problem. But apart from this, there’s little else going in its favour to warrant such a hefty premium when compared to phones like the Lumia 625 and Lumia 720. We would still love to see a ‘Lumia 725′ with 1GB RAM, which will undoubtedly be a much better buy than the 625 and 1320 put together. To sum up, the Lumia 1320 would make a good smartphone at Rs 16,000, if you’re into ‘phablets’.

In the end, while size matters, it's also what you do with it that really counts, and we're not sure Windows Phone yet does enough to warrant phablet-scale for every user. Although some groups will find enough to love about the Lumia 1320's screen, Microsoft needs to do a little more to refine its OS to deliver on its half of the bargain. That will undoubtedly come in time, but for now we'd be more tempted by one of Nokia's smaller Lumia devices, particularly those with PureView cameras.

Though, the Icon has a number of additional attractive features that may catch a consumer’s fancy such as well, like the bright, crisp full HD display with beveled edges, or the excellent (for a smartphone) 20MP camera that offers plenty of manual controls and relatively high picture and video quality.

The Nokia Icon is a wonderful Windows Phone device, which is well designed and great to use. It could be a strong phone if you like the OS in general, or if your activities are very much focused on email, mobile photography, web browsing — plus other apps that you need. At a price point of $199 (with contract) to $550 (without contract), there is plenty of very worthy competitors that run on a similar hardware platform. Of course Nokia has a slight advantage when compared to others, thanks to an impressive display and camera, but it’s really about how you want to use it.

The Nokia Lumia Icon is probably the best Windows Phone around at the moment: it bests the Lumia 1020 in every major respect except looks and camera skills, boasts quad-core power and a fantastic screen. And it isn’t even particularly pricey. That being said, the spec is just a little bit "best of 2013", we have little doubt the coming 2014 crop of new Windows smartphones from Nokia and elsewhere may surpass it on specs and design. And that means, in the end, that the lack of availability on this side of the pond may end up being only a fleeting loss.

Nokia Lumia Icon Review: Verizon does Windows Phone better than before
Source: Mobileburn English
The Lumia Icon is almost the best Lumia smartphone to date. The only thing holding it back is that the Lumia 1020 has a better camera and the Lumia 925 has a better body. Still, it's in the elite company of being a Windows Phone that I could actually see myself using on a daily basis. Were it not for my reliance on Google services, there would be very little to complain about. Windows Phone's shortcomings have been chipped away at a slow pace, but there are fewer reasons to take issue than there have been in the past.

80% Nokia Lumia Icon review: The best Windows Phone so far
Source: PC World English
While the Nokia Lumia Icon for Verizon remains the best Windows Phone we've tested in 2014, noticeable shutter lag and a nagging lack of applications still hold it back. Owning a Windows Phone, however, still feels like living a year or so behind the rest of the market. If you’re an app fiend, you’d still be better off buying an iPhone or Android phone, which dependably receive third-party apps. But the Icon and Lumia 1520 are clearly the best Windows Phones on the market. Deciding between them simply depends on which size you prefer.

Nokia Lumia Icon Review
Source: Slashgear English
You could accuse Nokia and Verizon of tempting fate, hopping off the traditional numbered Lumia naming scheme and giving their new phone an ambitious title like Icon. To do so invites all manner of comparisons, and while Nokia's Icon may be one of its more beautifully crafted phones, little things like over-badging, some glitches in how the camera performs, and the overall bulk mean it's not quite ready for sainthood. As with any good icon, then, the Lumia Icon can't simply show up and expect to be worshipped. Nokia will need to make sure the sales staff out in stores are proselytizing its message if it wants what's a great smartphone to get the attention it both needs and deserves.

The Nokia Lumia Icon is definitely a more grown-up Windows Phone, more austere than earlier Lumias in appearance but just as powerful. And that’s part of the problem. The Icon features almost all the same specs as the larger 6-inch Lumia 1520, but at a more palatable 5-inch screen size. Other than that size reduction and the gradual improvement to the Windows Phone app store, there’s really nothing extra that helps it live up to its name.

Nokia Lumia Icon Doesn’t Quite Live Up to Its Name

As I mentioned earlier, the Lumia Icon features a quad-core processor, and the smartphone handled all tasks without a problem. Call quality was clear, though the audio can be piercing if you have the volume set on high, as I painfully found out. I didn’t run a formal battery test on the phone, but with moderate usage I was able to go a full day before needing to recharge. Like many of Nokia’s high-end smartphones, the Lumia Icon supports wireless charging. The Lumia Icon is undoubtedly the best Windows Phone device in Verizon’s lineup. But Nokia and Microsoft will need to come up with something more interesting and iconic to convince consumers to switch to the platform.

Nokia Lumia 930

The Nokia Lumia 930 is Windows phone flagship. Because of its great display, powerful specs and a one of the best cameras on a phone, it deserves a hard look if you're thinking of getting a Windows Phone.

The Lumia 930 sports a 5-inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution screen, making it very sharp and crisp. Being an AMOLED screen means it  is guaranteed to have great viewing angles, great contrast as black pixels are totally turned off, which also helps to save battery. The Clearblack technology makes it even nice to look at with decent color.

The phone runs on a quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800. While it is a nice upgrade compared to older Windows phones, it is still using last gen hardware. 2 GB of RAM is more than enough to run all the apps available.

The 20 MP Pureview camera with Carl Zeiss Optics, dual-LED flash and four direction microphones to capture all the sound you need on video, is the star. It is definitely one of the better cameras out there. Its 2420 mAh battery proves more than enough for roughly a full day of use use before needing a charge.

This is a great Windows phone. While the apps ecosystem still needs much improvement, the phone itself is throughout solid.

We liked the Lumia Icon a lot, and we like the Lumia 930 even more. It doesn’t make any drastic improvements to key elements – the screen, camera, performance are all the same – but the inclusion of a wireless charger and Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box make it a better buy. It doesn’t have as much raw power as top iOS and Android phones, nor access to their wealth of apps, but it’s the best Windows Phone yet.

The Nokia Lumia 930 is undoubtedly one of Nokia's top offerings, which is particularly significant considering the message it sends. The Nokia spirit still lives after the Microsoft acquisition. The Lumia 930 isn't in the best position, being the first flagship following the transition, but what's more significant is that even at its best, a Lumia flagship stops just short of matching its Android peers. The WP8.1 update is certainly a step in the right direction, but one question still looms: what if Nokia had gone with Android?

The Lumia 930 is a step in the right direction with its semi-metal design and decent hardware line-up. We like the screen and camera but it's lacking additional features and doesn't have expandable storage. Windows Phone 8.1 vastly improves things on the software side but the platform is still not a priority for developers – especially when it comes to third-party hardware.

The Nokia Lumia 930 is a really great device that's hampered by a few too many elements, preventing me from lauding it as a truly standout handset. The main reason is still the same one I've been yammering about for a couple of years, and I'll say it again: Windows Phone is still not up the level of the rest of the competition, and that hampers any big gains made in hardware. Before anyone jumps straight to the comments to decry me as a fanboi of whichever other system, let me say this: I really like Windows Phone. In theory.

If you're a Windows Phone devotee, the Nokia Lumia 930 is easy to recommend. It's not a perfect phone, but it's definitely the best Windows Phone currently on sale. It's very fast and runs the latest version of Windows Phone 8, which adds some nice extra features. For everyone else, while it's an very accomplished phone, we're not totally convinced this is the phone that will convert people to Windows Phone. That's mainly down to the chunky design and underwhelming battery life, though the lack of HDR for the camera is another irritating aberration for a top-end phone.

As if in recognition of this, the Lumia 930 comes with a decent two-week launch offer of a dinky Bluetooth speaker, a wireless charging plate and a £20 app voucher. Even after that, every 930 sold in the UK will include a wireless charging plate. So if you’re already in the Windows Phone world, it may be worth waiting until later in the year to see what Nokia-soft has up its sleeve. That said, the Lumia 930 isn't a bad device by any means.

Nokia Lumia 630

Nokia has certainly taken a different approach when releasing the Nokia Lumia 630. Instead of making a high end and even more sophisticated device, they have opted for a budget handheld instead. And with the ever increasing cost of living, this may just very well be the right move. The design of the phone doesn't reflect its price. The colorful back of the Nokia Lumia 630 can be removed and replaced with different sets, allowing users to fine-tune the color schemes to their taste. Speaking of removable, the Nokia Lumia 630 comes with a removable battery, another great feature.

It also fares well with under the hood specifications. The Nokia Lumia 630 is powered by a quad core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, which is only seen in phones twice its price. Although it only comes with 512 MB of RAM, the performance and smoothness of usage is on par with its direct rivals having more RAM if not better. The phone has a whopping native memory of 8 GB, which can be increased with an external micro SD card.

The 4.5 inch display is also noteworthy. It's big enough to satisfy the rising demand for phones with big screens. Furthermore, the 854 by 480 resolution is a step ahead compared with other rivals, which usually come with 640 by 480.

In conclusion, the Nokia Lumia 630 is definitely a phone with tremendous value for money. The only reason why this phone isn't as popular as it should be, might be due to the fact that users are still skeptical about using a Windows based phone.

The Nokia Lumia 630 is a fantastic Windows handset. Its superb battery life and additional camera features are far above what we'd normally expect to see from such a cheap phone, and its excellent web performance puts it on equal standing with other top budget Android handsets such as the Motorola Moto G. If you're looking for a cheap Windows handset, the Lumia 630 is for you. However, if you live in a 4G area, you may want to consider the Lumia 630's 4G cousin, the Nokia Lumia 635, which costs just £10 more SIM free. We'll be publishing our review of the Lumia 635 shortly, as despite appearing to be exactly the same in terms of specification, our initial tests revealed some significant differences between the two handsets.

If you're considering the Lumia 630 as a first smartphone and you don't plan to buy lots of wireless accessories and install lots of apps, it's not a bad choice at all. Windows Phone 8.1 is very easy to use, and will improve even more when Cortana and its associated features arrive in the UK. However, the sticky problem of a lack of apps in Microsoft's store remains an issue for all Windows Phone 8 smartphones, and the lack of a front-facing camera is a problem if you want to use Skype.

The Nokia Lumia 630 is something of a mixed bag. It's cheap, cheerful and Nokia succeeds in delivering a bright and well built handset that's ahead of many competitors' plastic offerings. It also gives you the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system experience, as well as the latest additions from Lumia Cyan. But we found the software experience can feel a little slow and, with our review device, a little buggy too. There are hardware compromises too, especially in the display, when pitched against rivals such as the Motorola Moto G.

The Lumia 630 is limited by the hardware specifications but it remains good value if you can track it down for the sub-£100 price.

The Nokia Lumia 630 is a cheery, low cost phone with a better camera than some bargain basement Androids. But its screen resolution is quite poor and the availability and load speed of apps are issues.

70% Nokia Lumia 630 review: an affordable Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone
Source: PC Advisor English
If you're considering the Lumia 630 as a first smartphone and you don't plan to buy lots of wireless accessories and install lots of apps, it's not a bad choice at all. Windows Phone 8.1 is very easy to use, and will improve even more when Cortana and its associated features arrive in the UK. However, the sticky problem of a lack of apps in Microsoft's store remains an issue for all Windows Phone 8 smartphones, and the lack of a front-facing camera is a problem if you want to use Skype.

The 630 is easy to get along with. Yes it’s a bit slow and nothing about this Nokia screams ‘game-changer’. It’s just a nice phone for the money. It looks fun, comes with some excellent Nokia and Microsoft freebies and the OS is friendlier at first glance than KitKat, Google’s latest smartphone software. Right now though, affordable Androids (still) make more sense. And by affordable Androids, we (still) mean the brilliant Moto G. It’s selling for around the £100 mark and is worth every penny. And more.

What the Lumia 630 lacks the average user won't miss: no NFC, no fingerprint reader and no heart-rate monitor. It's a combination of good-enough hardware and an increasingly elegant operating system at a low price which will make it an attractive package for many. As such, phones like the Lumia 630 are throwing down a challenge to the smartphone flagships; give us useful and usable innovation and not just empty novelty, or we'll make do with handsets like this.

Hello Moto... It's the Nokia Lumia 630
Source: Reg Hardware English
The newer version of Windows Phone makes it a more functional option, tying in nicely if you have Windows 8 or 8.1 on your PC. There’s less futzing around on a Lumia than with an Android, but obviously less customisation or choice – you can replace everything, including the dialer and SMS app, on an Android. You can replace everything but the all-seeing-eye of Sauron Google. So Windows Phone is no longer as distinctive as it was, but if forgoing a wider app choice doesn’t bother you, and a robust basic modern smartphone is all you need, Lumia ticks the box.

Source: Techtree.com English
The Lumia 630 delivers excellent smartphone experience. Windows Phone 8.1 is fast, fluid, and smart. Considering its price tag, the handset is incredibly well built. You'd be forgiven to think that the phone costs around Rs 15,000. The screen isn't very sharp, but does a good job at producing colours. The phone doesn't support Candy Crush Saga, but you get useful apps such as Microsoft Office Suite, HERE Drive +, and Mix Radio.

The step down to 512MB RAM and the absence of a flash are inconvenient, not dealbreakers, but customers who choose Android phones in the same price band won't have to make similar compromises. Moreover, there are also far better phones such as the Moto G which cost only very little more. We feel as though the Lumia 630 will be more competitive once its price drops by around Rs. 1,000 - 2,000.

The Lumia 630 - hitting the retail shelves on May 14 - has a lot riding on its shoulders as it provides the world with peek into the world of Windows Phone 8.1 before the other phones get the update on June 24. The single-SIM version is priced at Rs. 10,500 and Microsoft quotes a price of Rs.11,500 for the dual-SIM one. It competes head-to-head with an established behemoth - the Moto G. Also, joining the fray soon is the Moto E. The budget segment is heating up and the consumers are only glad.

Nokia Lumia 635

The Nokia Lumia 635 is the slightly bigger brother of the 630. The biggest difference is the inclusion of 4G LTE compatibility in the Lumia 635. So, it's a budget phone aiming at those that want to experience 4G LTE without paying a premium.

The 635 is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 with a clock rate of 1.2 GHz, which is pretty decent for a budget device of its price. The drawback is it only comes with 512 MB of RAM, which hinders its performance. Expect some lag during multitasking and more resource-hungry applications.

The Lumia 635 sports a 4.5-inch IPS screen with 480 x 854 resolution and includes Clearblack technology. The resolution is actually a little low. So, there will be a lack of sharpness. However, with IPS and Clearblack, expect good viewing angles and better than average outdoor legibility.

The 5 MP rear camera doesn't come with flash. So shooting at night is out of the question. The camera is good enough for taking simple shots. The Lumia 635 doesn't feature a front camera, which is a let-down. The device is powered by a 1830 mAh battery. This is more than enough to make it through the entire day with the low specs. However, having 4G on will drain it faster. If you’re looking for a budget Windows 8 phone with 4G capability, the Lumia 635 is your best bet.

The Nokia Lumia 635 is one of the cheaper 4G phones, and the cheapest 4G Windows Phone we’ve reviewed. However, as we said of the Lumia 630, it doesn’t feel anywhere near as competitive as the Lumia 520 and Lumia 620 did when they were released back in 2013.

Nokia Lumia 635: No Selfies, but a Good Bargain

Call quality was also clear as I made several calls around San Francisco using T-Mobile’s network, and I experienced fairly good data speeds. Based on Ookla’s Speedtest app, I averaged download speeds of 9.47 megabits per second and upload speeds of 7.95 Mbps. When my colleague Walt Mossberg tested the 3G-only Moto E, he struggled to get download speeds of even 2 Mbps, though this was over AT&T’s network, and in different cities (New York and Washington, D.C.).

No, you don't get a front camera or flash on the back, but the $168 Nokia Lumia 635 is a solid choice for the price. This Windows Phone delivers smooth performance, long battery life and a surprisingly lovely display. The 5-MP camera isn't great, but Nokia's suite of camera apps helps make the best of it.

Deep-dive review: The Lumia 635 smartphone -- a study in contrasts
Source: Computerworld.com English
Overall, the Lumia 635 is an odd mix of hardware cutbacks for affordability with some premium software features thrown in. It's rather strange that the Lumia 635, which has a single camera and only a moderately good display and processor, is the first to offer Windows Phone 8.1 and the perks that come with it, such as Office software, Here Drive+ navigation and a Cortana digital assistant that is sophisticated enough to create reminders by tracking information inside of emails. Maybe the phone doesn't know if it wants to be a kid or a grown-up.

But there are a few major caveats. That lack of a front-facing camera will be a deal breaker for many. To get a decent front-facing camera and LTE in a current phone on T-Mobile, you need to make a big price jump up to the excellent Moto G for $219. You'll lose the expandable memory, but you'll gain the more mainstream world of Android apps.

I wonder, though, how many Lumia 635s will be returned when consumers discover the lack of a front-facing camera. That’s a real blow to the platform, especially when you factor in the lack of first-party apps in the Windows Store. Phones like the Lumia 1020, Lumia Icon, and Lumia 1520 have given Lumia owners something to brag about. Phones like the Lumia 635 will straddle the narrow line between value and mediocrity.

The Nokia Lumia 635 is nigh-on identical to the Nokia Lumia 630, only with the addition of 4G connectivity. But the resultant bump up in price carries things in the wrong direction. All of a sudden, comparisons to similarly priced Android phones become less flattering, and a case for buying the Lumia 635 becomes tougher to make. The Lumia 635 remains a decent all-round phone, though, with a level of build quality that outshines anything else at this price point and a fresh new Windows Phone 8.1 OS.

The Nokia Lumia 635 is a slight update to an already well-rounded budget blower that brings 4G powers to the table and a slicker, glossy body too. Even though Windows 8.1 packs in many features we've been craving for ages, it's still playing catch-up with the big boys of the phone world. But if you're after a basic, no-nonsense phone that ditches the bells and whistles for a speedy 4G connection, iPhone 5c-style styling and a solid OS, the Lumia 635 could be the budget handset you've been waiting for - and you can bet it'll get even cheaper with network branding too.

The Lumia 610 is a gorgeous phone which, while slower than other Windows Phone 7 handsets, is still faster and slicker than any budget Android handsets we've come across. It has the worst screen in the Lumia range, but it's still better than most budget Android phones' displays, and even the camera isn’t bad for the price. If you want to be sure to have the full Windows Phone experience you should save up for the Lumia 710, but as long as you're aware of its compromises the Lumia 610 is still a great handset.

The Nokia Lumia 530 is a good phone for under £90, but now that the Lumia 630's SIM-free price has come down to roughly £110, we think that choosing the Lumia 530 over its big brother is a bit of a false economy. While it's very similar to the Lumia 630, we'd rather pay the extra £20 for a better screen and a longer battery life. If Nokia lowered the Lumia 530's price in the future, we might bump it up a star, but for now the Lumia 630 remains our budget Windows phone of choice.

With its insanely appealing price, and excellent performance, the Lumia makes an attractive option in the sub-£50 smartphone market. The 530 will undercut almost everything else on the market.

Source: PC Advisor English
Choosing between the Nokia Lumia 530 and Motorola Moto E is difficult. I'm a seasoned Android user, but I like what I see in Windows Phone 8.1. And without that tired old Windows Phone lacks apps argument (the Motorola Moto E doesn't have enough built-in storage to take full advantage of what Google Play and third-party developers have to offer), there is nothing that you might expect of a budget smartphone that either Windows Phone or Android are unable to do. In many respects these two phones are very evenly matched. The Motorola Moto E stands out for its display, while the Nokia Lumia 530 is the winner on the storage front. And the Lumia 530 absolutely wins on the pricing - you cannot argue at £60.

The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions.
