Awesome Product from Nokia

Hello Friends,

After a lot of research i finalized this device as my choice and then without second thought i ordered if from another online site for much lower price than flipkart.I have been using the device from past 20 days.And my opinion is :

The device performance is Buttery Smooth,Windows UI is Awesome.I suggest this phone for those who are bored with laggy android,those who cannot afford a high end android.

Almost all important apps are now available on WP store except very few which we use hardly. Never think that WP store does'nt have apps or so !

Performance : yes performance...

Hello Friends,

The device performance is Buttery Smooth,Windows UI is Awesome.I suggest this phone for those who are bored with laggy android,those who cannot afford a high end android.

Almost all important apps are now available on WP store except very few which we use hardly. Never think that WP store does'nt have apps or so !

Performance : yes performance is superb in this price range, I bet you,show me a single smartphone other than windows,in this price range that performs really good ! We cant find any !

Microsoft has given high priority for the Privacy of customers and this is the reason there are many limitations in the OS.Hopefully at least few will be addressed in next update.

Camera is excellent during daytime but Nights its not !

Though there are no customizations as of now,Microsoft is working on WP 8.1 which adds many customizations.

And never ever compare WP and Android ! Android took nearly 7 years to reach the position which it is enjoying now,but WP is just two years old.It takes time.

Most Of the people have complaint regarding the Battery Life.
--> This is because most of them put over charge before the first usage(6 hrs ++).Those days were gone.

--> If you are getting a new phone,then just charge it to 100% and use the phone normally for a couple of days(lets say 4 to 6 days or a week).And never operate your phone when its charging(Only during these days),mainly do not play games.

-->after a week or so play with your phone as you want, No restrictions.

Note : This is not from any source or article, This is from my personal experience.

-->My phone gives a back up of 1 day + 5 hours On "moderate--heavy" usage. And on light usage i get 2+ days back up.

Moderate--heavy Usage : Wifi Always on,Whatsapp,hike,Browsing Via Internet Explorer,Subway surfers + 2 or 3 games,calls.Streaming(at times only).

Light usage : Calls,messages,Few normal games.No wifi or data.

** Hope this review helps for those who decide to buy this phone**

Review: Before you decide that "is lumia 525 the best smart phone I wanna buy?" make sure that you are not interested in android platform, apps and tired of clutter content or the way your current phone looks and lags all the time. Also, a small advice, people always have a misconception about the camera in mobile devices, I've seen most of them think more megapixels means more clarity, which is not true in fact. A smart phone which has 4 inch IPS display (Multi-touch) 5MP camera (lenses included *) which gives you quick uploads on your favorite social media like facebook, instagram etc,. is always a smart choice rather than compromising on things which are least important and does not helps in our routine life.

Specification of this phone are genuine. Usability is truly amazing when all tasks are done on it each and every day without getting lost in useless apps. However, this phone gives you a feeling of carrying a premium quality device and not like a budget ones. Read below for all the pros & cons of this device in detail.

PROS:

* IPS Display:
- Vivid and crystal clear.
- Gives you full HD experience.
- Color profiles are amazing.
- Super Sensitive (can also use it by wearing gloves)
- Scratch less (please don't use a pen or pin on it to prove me wrong)
- Auto adjust the brightness according to environment.

* Built Quality:
- very good, soft in hands (only if it has a black panel, rest of the covers will slip from your hands)
- Buttons are good, they do not wobble from place.
- Connectivity is good both for USB and Head jack.
- Speakers are loud enough.

* Windows OS 8:

- Has all the "Must have apps" from windows marketplace.
- Nokia did a fantastic job in providing them.
- Creativity(+)
- Office use (+)
- Business purpose (+)
- Entertainment (+)
- Premium Ringtones (+)
- Addictive (+) (if you like windows)
- Does not hangs in between
- Boots up soon, no delays (except the first launch)
- Classy looks
- Upgradable

* Call quality is great (Airtel only / don't know about the other provider)
* Can record all sort of calls including conference, radio and voice recording
- Recording quality is very good (real-time)
* Music quality depends upon your earphones.
* Video playback quality is very good, more format options available and no need to get extra player apps to play different formats.

* Camera:
- Intelligent, Auto Focus (ISO options - Nokia Camera) and gives good pictures (if taken in daylight).
- Different lenses, more creative options.
- Apps. (Nokia Exclusive)
- Good light gives you 5MP worth quality.
- Video recording quality is great (depending on light) more options for creativity.

* Network:
- Fast
- 3G is very good, never slows down unless if you face a low bar in signals.
- Internet explorer is much faster and pages load more quickly than previous version
- Wi-Fi speed is excellent (depending upon the strength)
- Download speed is good
- Upload speed is good

* Storage:
- In-build memory gives 6.8 GB (2Gb reserved) (total = 8 GB)
- One Drive gives you 7 GB online storage (Free) (upgradable)
- Camera roll gives 3 GB additional on One Drive
- Expandable memory card up to 64 GB
- Total Storage : 80.8 GB (Excluding 2GB reserve) (no phone gives this storage for 9k)

* Other:
- Apps are clean and fast.
- Games do not stuck in between. (high end games+)
- Maps are a plus add-on to this phone

CONS:

- Default earpiece gives basic audio experience.
- Bad lighting gives you a 2 - 3 MP picture / video quality.
- Sweaty hands can't hold it properly.
- Heats up if used continuously for more than 4 hours.
- Not so Customizable like android with themes or launchers.
- Less apps if compared with android
- Delicate
- Single Sim
- Short USB cable

Best Smartphone under 10K

First of all i wanna tell you ABOUT PHONE:-
this is the best phone under 10K if you've 10k then go for it without thinking much.. 1GB RAM is perfect for Gaming & snapdragonS4 processor is also a good performer.. It can handle Big graphic rich Games like Asphalt 8 with ease.. No lags found.. 5MP camera is the best of its type & with Nokia Camera it is totally out of the comparison with those Micromax or Xolo(Lava) or Any other Indo-Chinese brand.. Don't go on numbers these Chinese vendors show for processor & mega pixels for camera as these are making fool.. Micromax's Canvas 4...

No lags found.. 5MP camera is the best of its type & with Nokia Camera it is totally out of the comparison with those Micromax or Xolo(Lava) or Any other Indo-Chinese brand.. Don't go on numbers these Chinese vendors show for processor & mega pixels for camera as these are making fool.. Micromax's Canvas 4 camera is not better than Lumia 520 or 525 5MP camera, when Nokia say something about their phone their phone really perform as said.. Its battery backup is also satisfactory.. It'll last you one day despite having much more tasks such as watching videos talking on 3G, Gaming or Clicking photos, Browsing Internet, chatting with friends and much more.. SO IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS DONT THINK MUCH JUST BUY IT & Don't be confused if some people are telling you the flaw of Its OS that Windows Phone 8.. People say Windows Phone have less apps...But Nah.. Nah.. I've used Sony Xperia before and i can assure you.. You'll not be disappointed with its OS.. In fact you'll loge its Beautiful & Smooth UI & Those who complain for APPS availability they need to update themselves as now windows Phone store have all APPS & GAMES WHICH you'll need.. Instagram, Vine,Facebook Messenger, Indian Railway, BBM is coming shortly and much much more... They are all now on Windows Phone Store..Nokia Mix Radio, Here Maps & Here Drive and many other Nokia Exclusives make Lumias even Better...And now lets talk about its OS
WINDOWS PHONE 8.1 COMING TO ALL LUMIAS...
I've ordered this Lumia 525 as i wanted a refreshed experience in low budget and windows phone provides best user experience.. Don't be confused of buying a windows phone as it is surely better than that lagdroid.. MICROSOFT RECENTLY ANNOUNCED WindowsPhone8.1 update with Nokia Cyan update which will make Windows Phone the best operating system so don't blame windows Phone anymore go & read what's new coming in windows phone 8.1. Action Center,which allows you to quichly access settings..by swiping down from the top Notification Center,is also there to show your all notifications..at one place..Option to enable that extra column of live tiles, New Backgrounds with parallax effect for start screen now any picture can be set as a live tile background & with parallax effect it looks awesome... Apps, Games and anything can now be stored in CLASS 5 or higher SD cards.. New battery sense.. And Most important Cortana the best Personal Assistant is also coming it is far better than Apple's Siri.. You can read more about new Windows Phone on WPCENTRAL website.. Or windows Phone website... Now Switch to Windows Phone as I've switched and you'll love it

Decent for its price

Awesome service flipkart considering most sellers do not ship to my location.

The product.
I have used it for approximately a month now and i can give you a detailed review.

First things first- You get the games if you buy from flipkart and the seller is WS Retail. Maybe others offer it too but i cant say.

Display:-
For a windows phone with all its lined icons and tiles instead of the round curvy ones in iOS or Android, 480x800 does amazingly well considering its is only a 4 inch panel. Agreed its not a retina but it is still not that obvious to the...

Display:-
For a windows phone with all its lined icons and tiles instead of the round curvy ones in iOS or Android, 480x800 does amazingly well considering its is only a 4 inch panel. Agreed its not a retina but it is still not that obvious to the naked eye.
Brightness is awesome for the phone in 10k category. I mean cmon guys stop comparing it to those Amoled panels. They cost you.
IPS display, excellent colour reproduction and as always, nokia's quality.

Touch:-
Only one word. BUTTER. in high sensitivity, you actually do not need to touch it. if you maintain a very small gap, you get to use it. The double tap to wake is great for checking the notifications while its lying on a table.

Build quality:-
Guys, just remember one thing, it comes from the company which made the 3310.
Awesome quality an the poly-carbonate back feels much better than the cheap Samsung ones. The only disadvantage, Nokia dosen't give you flip-covers like Samsung. And the Lumia 520 covers and cases by Nokia are absolutely compatible. I have always been a fan of straight lines and edges. So i love its design. If you like curves, go for Samsung.

Battery:-
A 1430mAH battery but performs much better thanks to the windows phone OS.
Lasts me about a day with usage included. On standby with background 3G with some whats app and brightness on auto, Gave me a full 2 day session until it switched off.

Performance:-
The USP of the phone.
A snapdragon s4 Dual core in 10 K?
Two years ago i would have told you its impossible.
Nokia bought me by providing a snapdragon at this price point.
Dual core runs all the windows apps and games without lag or stutter even with two running.
1GB RAM is the best you can get at this price and honestly, its quite enough.
I ran NOVA 3, Modern Combat 4, Lets golf HD, Assassins creed, NFS HP. None of them lagged.
For stress testing, Uninstalled all apps, cleared all files and installed two games NOVA 3 and MC4. ran both simeltaneously and NOVA had slight stutters in Graphically intense scenes But MC4 lagged a bit. Mostly due to lack of cores for parallel processing.

Camera:-
Compare it with anything up to the 20K range except the lumias and it'll just blow them off. Guys remember one thing, megapixel matters only when you want a whole big print. Except for that quality matters and this thing gives you just that. The focusing is fast. The capture is fast too. The Nokia camera is a good thing for a planned photo but for a quick snap, the general camera is much better.
Video is clear and sound reproduction is just awesome.

The OS:-
Depends on your taste. If you want all that games and customisability with ROM's and all that stuff, go for an android. Windows is targeted towards a guy who wants just some basic smartphone features for manual and want to let the phone do all the other stuff.
All general functions are there.
Dont forget the nokia MixRAdio.
Necessary apps are available. All games are not but quite a few are.
Here Maps. Just Awesome.

Comparing with moto G.
Firstly it costs 2.5k more.
Secondly, its quad core is a older Snapdragon 400 not a S4 pro. And as the render resolution on the screen is more(720x1280)it it taxed out. Still performs better Than the lumia:(
Camera is a big Letdown.
Build quality is okay okay.
Screen is much better that the 525.

Verdict:-
Unless you are a geek who want all the latest and the best, go for the nokia. If you want that big appstore and app ecosystem, go for the Moto G.
DO NOT, I Repeat DO NOT go fro indian brands like LAVA, Micromax, etc. I agree they have good phones but the service is pathetic. Please stay away.
If you want the iOS, the apple iPhone 4 is still for sale, grab it.

Great budget phone

been using using it for over a month. absolutely no glitches, faults, lags... runs smoothly and the extra 1 gb ram is handy for heavy gaming
the back get slightly hot during extended use, especially above the camera lens. other than that, its a great phone for the asking price. good alternative...
