IndiaQues. Is the Nokia Lumia 625 a Good to buy at Rs. 16k compared to lumia 720??
ANS. Choosing a Smart Phone seems to be very serious decision these days as i just mentioned a day ago about the Dilemma of choosing a Smartphone, here we got another one. Lumia series is itself a totally complete range of Smart Phones that can even make Loyal BB or Apple fans to crave of a sleek & Powerful Lumia. So which one is the Best among Lumia 625 & Lumia 720 Lets Find out.
The Lumia 720 is one of the best Windows Phone out there with the inherited looks from its Parent Lumia 800 with only getting slimmer by the time. One can easily fall for this Sleek handset that too with a competitive price tag considering the Market Segment & the performance of Lumia 720 with Windows Phone in it's core that makes it the undisputed winner in it's category.
Though with features like NFC, Wireless charging & a 4.3 inch Gorilla Glass II Display it seemed to be complete handset but then considering the future it lacks a important feature and that is 4G LTE. Lumia 720 miss out on the LTE that could have added more advantage with it though as of now it's hardly available in India but soon we will have & i don't think someone will plan to phase out this sheer beauty within a year & go for another one. But unlike this Nokia had some other plans.
The Nokia Introduced Lumia 625 into the market with same features as of Lumia 720 but with another .5 inch of screen & including the 4G LTE that they might have missed out on purpose in Lumia 720. Nokia Lumia 625 was the largest windows phone with 4.7 inch display until Nokia Announced Lumia 1520 recently. But we should come back to our topic of concern, the tussle between Lumia 720 & Lumia 625.
As i mentioned earlier both of them have almost same features but then Lumia 625 have larger display & 4G LTE in its bucket. According to Nokia, Lumia 625 is priced at 19K So according to me shelling out another 3K for just half inch & a feature that will hardly be usable in India in next year will not be a wise decision. But as you mentioned you can get it in 16K then it's will be very good deal.
If a Lumia 625 is available in 16K then i will surely choose it over Lumia 720 but please keep in mind that if you are buying it from Snapdeal or some other Online Store then do a thorough check as soon as you receive the device as even I m pretty sure that it won't be available in less then 18K if you are not buying from online store or with some exchange deal.
So verdict is Lumia 625 is a great choice compared to Lumia 720 in 16K but don't go for it if you can't make the deal under 18K.
