Nokia goes large with the Lumia 625

A mixed bag of a phone in truth, but there are two standout features on the Nokia Lumia 625 that should sell it to the public.

Of course, Nokia will be hoping one of those appealing features is the Windows Phone 8 software or even the colourful (and almost trademark) Lumia design. But more likely, it will be the 4.7-inch 'super-sensitive' LCD screen and 4G access.

Both are here on a phone Nokia describes as affordable. With the rush for larger screens and 4G likely to be more prevalent as we end the year, those two features at the right price could be a winner for the Finnish company. Oh yes, you also get recent Nokia innovations found in the recently announced flagship Nokia Lumia 1020, including a range of integrated camera applications like Nokia Smart Camera and Nokia Cinemagraph, for example.

'With our largest smartphone screen to date, the Nokia Lumia 625 is a perfect example of how Nokia is delivering leading smartphone innovation and experiences at every price point,' said Jo Harlow, executive vice president, Nokia Smart Devices.

The feature set includes that screen, officially a 4.7-inch Gorilla Glass 2 800 x 480 IPS LCD display, along with a 1.2-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, 512MB RAM, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing camera. 8GB of storage is included, along with 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage for free and a microSD card slot to boost storage to 64GB. A 2,000 mAh battery should mean up to 15 hours of life.

Orange, green, yellow, white and black are the colours, with an estimated retail price of 220 Euros, selling from the third quarter of 2013.
