Nokia Lumia 625 comes with a new generation of polycarbonate shells
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 23, 2013, 4:28 AM
It turns out that the colorful interchangeable shells that the Nokia Lumia 625 will be available with have been given additional thought compared to the first polycarb iterations of Nokia.
translucent, like on the Lumia 620, and the paint is layered with an inner color for a "warm glow" look, while the matte finish adds to a more human feel in the hand. Pretty good results, we'd say, showing that Nokia isn't resting on its laurels when it comes to the use of deep-colored polycarb in its signature pillowy Lumias.They are
- Display 4.7" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1200 MHz
- Storage 8 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2000 mAh(15.2h 3G talk time)

Wow Nokia. 4.7 inch screen for 6XX series. So what about screen sizes for future 7, 8 and 9 series Lumias. Cant wait. This is going to give tough competition to all those Android Mid-range large screen devices (Like Galaxy Grand). Go Nokia Go!

What Phonearena don't say, because they are paid by Microsoft, is that the screen is 800x480 for 4.7", and 512 mb of RAM. 300EUR (HTX 8X is at about 250EUR and is a WP flagship with better hardware specs), Nexus 4 is about the same price but is way better with Android, and better screen;

What the guys above me said + the 625 will be 220 EUR, not 300... Anout the HTC 8X, zeah, 250 EUR, right... dream on. It may cost that much today, 10 months after launch, but when it came out it was 430 EUR.. People looking for a 4.7-5" phone will find this an interesting option.

Other than the feel and maybe the look, how is aluminium better than ploycarbonate?

The polycarbonate model that has a metal frame? It's still mostly a plastic phone, just has metal on the edges. Simple truth is this, there's nothing wrong with plastic on phones. There's actually many pros to using that material, but you never hear that from certain camps. The entire "build quality" stance over polycarbonate vs. aluminum is overblown and ridiculous. Each has pros and cons, both are beneficial in their own ways. "Plastic is cheap" stupidity needs to end.

cheap case material, ugly & cheap looking, low resolution, low pixel density, low battery capacity, stupid chessboard OS, no customization, few apps, but very expensive. screw you nokia. Thank God, I almost bought nokia.
