Nokia recently unveiled the Lumia 625 smartphone. It is the biggest Lumia phone to date, packing a 4.7-inch display. The good thing about this latest Lumia is that it is priced affordably, retailing for only about US$307 (Php12,800). The other attractive feature of the Nokia Lumia 625 is that it has HSPA and LTE connectivity. To get to this price point though, Nokia made sacrifices and the main sacrifice is the screen quality. The Nokia Lumia 625 rocks a screen with only 480 x 800 resolution or a 201ppi density. For a screen with 4.7-inch size, the poor quality is rather obvious, at least when you compare it to the nice resolutions of current handsets.
Here are the main specs of the Nokia Lumia 625.

The Nokia Lumia 625 should please those who are looking for a Windows Phone handset with a huge display. The price is definitely a big catch but only if you are willing to look beyond the poor quality of the display. In terms of design, the Nokia Lumia 625 is as good as the Lumia handsets that have been released before it. The internals is of course a different story.
