Nokia Lumia 625 Price = Affordable for the Masses (Singapore)
The Nokia Lumia 625 is the latest mid-tier smartphone to launch from Nokia, at a very affordable price, yet with reasonable specifications. The Nokia Lumia 625 price for a smartphone with a decently large display at 4.7 inches, is amazing at just $399.
The Nokia Lumia 625 has an overall modern and hip design, and would appeal to the teenager on a budget. Although for the teenage group, peer pressure from the Apple and Android camps would be hard to avoid. The rounded surface all over the phone gives the phone an organic feel, like a smooth pebble. Together with a matt finish, this is a smartphone that you want to roll around in your hand. The device comes in quirky orange and yellow, and sophisticated black and white, to suit any personality or lifestyle. In addition, the layered polycarbonate on the interchangeable shell covers gives the surface of the device a translucent quality, a hip and modern take.
Powered by Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 625 provides leading personalization with customizable Live Tiles that update directly on the home screen. Pin playlists, web pages, documents and apps directly to the start screen, and access your favorite content with ease, all in the palm of your hand! With an astounding 7GB of free cloud storage on SkyDrive and SD memory card support of up to 64GB, the Nokia Lumia 625 grants you a seamless integration of work and play, on-the-go. For workaholics, Microsoft Office comes with the device out-of-the-box.
Apps would make or break a phone, and with only 165,000 apps available on the Windows Store, this might be a concern for many. Talk about being outcast when your friend fires up the latest game on iOS and the game is nowhere to be found on the Windows marketplace.
That aside, the popular apps such as Whatsapp, Line, Youtube and Skype are all there. No instagram though for those photo fanatics. There are perks of having a Nokia phone, which is the access to the apps such as Nokia Music, which offers uninterrupted, ad-free music streaming guaranteed to satisfy music buffs. There’s also Nokia Drive offers effortless and more importantly OFFLINE navigation wherever you go.
