    Re: News - Nokia unveils the Lumia 625, an affordable 4G smartphone

    Bit confused by the screen size and 201PPI, assuming 16:9 ratio it gives 463 x 820 pixels, or assuming 16:10 ratio it gives 500 x 800 pixels....hmmm

    Have read 800 x 480: not the best for sure but if its sub 200 quid for a 4G phone, it's looks decent kit

    Got to give it to Nokia, they know how to make a full range of products at each price point and even the "low end" products still do a pretty good job performance wise. Although that is partly helped by Windows Phone being efficient with resources that it doesn't need tons of ram or mega fast quad processors.

    Yeah, as ajones said, it's about operation with gloves.

    Also, I've got the 620 and I love it, but I have to admit that sometimes the less sensitive screen is frustrating and it can take a bit of persistence to make a "click" happen sometimes. It's still an excellent phone, but the 625 seems to have a few big advantages.

    Yeah, I'm amazed by how slick my 620 feels, even though it looks weak on paper. Low specs don't necessarily doom a Windows Phone at all. I thought I was making a big compromise in exchange for money saved, but really all I'm compromising on is the absence of a certain number of apps.

    Doh! My Lumia 620 I bought in March is already obsolete! Oh well, I only get 3G where I am anyway at the moment. Still, WP8 is very nice and I'm still playing with the OS as if I bought it yesterday.
