  • Terrible product. Run before you buy

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This phone is designed to strip any form freedom from you before you even try to download an app. From day one problems persist related to the app store, all apps, app internet connection and so much more. There is no possible way whatsoever to move or even view any file saved to your SD card, you can not download anything from the internet, you can not search on the app store. This phone limits every possible way to do anything. Highly disappointed in the performance of the windows 8 phone. Would highly recommend android over this.

    The best phone I've had, not crashing too much, good camera, big enough screen to type on but not too big it doesn't fit in my pocket, can use screen with gloves, Windows 8.1 is good and I have high hopes for Windows 10 for phones. It is also reliable, as the battery life is outstanding and the stylish sides fit comfortably in my hands. Could only be improved by adding more ram, taking I up to 1mb maybe, but for a cheap phone I can't really complain.

  • A great phone

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    The phone works very well, though it does intermittently dim the screen when it shouldn't. Camera picture quality is far from excellent. I must admit I can't get on with Cortana - it certainly doesn't work as well as in the adverts. But from a reliability point of view the phone works very well. Battery life has definitely declined since the Cortana update - no more than 22 hours irrespective of use and I don't have email set up. I can't say I have had any problems with ringer volume. One thing no-one seems to mention is the phone call quality - which is excellent.

  • Simply Amazing

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This phone is affordable, and can handle all your mobility needs. All of its features really made my productivity getting better and better. Applications that I like the most is Here Drive and Lumia MixRadio (formerly Nokia MixRadio). Here Drive provides you offline maps and predict your location precisely. MixRadio contais thousands of songs that you can play for free.. with no ads!!

  • An Amazing Phone!!!

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    An absolutely amazing phone, easy to use and get used to. Being the cheapest available it is a great choice. Though it has some small draw backs, I wouldn't trade it for any other operating system. Some drawbacks include: > A poor App Store > Short Battery Life (Since 8.1 Update) > Ringtone is a little quiet (Again Since 8.1 Update) However the phone is the best, being lightweight and durable (You wouldn't believe how much I've dropped mine, and there isn't even a scratch). It is also great for business, being able to save contacts and then you are able to view them using your hotmail/outlook account! I would definitely advise you to buy one! Lumia is the way to go! Well Done Nokia!

  • since upgrade to windows 8.1 there is no ringtone above 10.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I used to love this phone being a new user of smart phones. Since the upgrade phone is now useless as I can no longer hear it ring and there is no way to turn it up. I have tried trouble shooting sites but no joy there. The battery also runs down much quicker. Looking at other users complaints on other sites seems I'm not the only one

    I really love Lumia 625 phone because not only it fulfills all my needs but also It so less problems with hardware. When I look into a mobile phone I always try to get the one which helps me in all the ways. I am so happy that the phone is helping me with everything. The size of the screen is not so small and not too big. And supporting 4g is another advantage. Love my phone and I do not hesitate to recommend this phone model to anybody.

  • An unfinished product

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This is my first smart phone and I am not a power user, so I'm not looking for exciting features. I just want to send a few SMS, make a couple of calls and consult a couple of information sites (either via an app or via the web). In the main the Nokia Lumia 520 meets my needs, but there are too many annoying glitches for me to recommend this product: low battery life (despite little use), intermittent screen dimming (while I'm writing), freezes, . . . not to mention the lack of a visible clock on the "Start" page. I also encountered zoom problems (which may now be fixed) with size going to unreadable to hardly any zoom at all.

  • A good phone with a major design flaw.....

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    The features of this phone are excellent for an entry level smart phone but the battery life is too short and a design flaw makes it frustrating. The major problem with the phot is the on / off button, it collapsed within the first 12 months of use, this was repaird under warranty but it collapsed again when the phone was just over the 12 months after reapair. I now have a 530 and I hope the problem has been resolved. Not good for a Nokia / microsoft device....

  • Do not buy this phone!!!!!!!!

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This phone is the least user friendly phone I have ever seen. Messaging is a nightmare! the menu is a disaster. The set-up took many hours and remains an incomplete and e ongoing task. Website instructions such as ' key in first letters of the required contact' - matching contacts will be displayed' is false because the contacts (actually called people' in the menu') are not imported and synced into the menu. This phone is a nightmare!!!!

  • Quite like the 'phone but suspicious of software

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Am I the only person to be a bit irked to find that, after an upgrade, I have an unrequested bit of software that wants to know all about me to help me organize my life and, God help me, it will talk to me. Even worse, Microsoft refer to it as "she". It is not human. Clearly this software is not aimed at mature adults and it certainly leaves me cold. I feel vaguely insulted that it was downloaded without my knowledge or permission ; it is a feeble toy which I don't use.
