Vi­tal im­prove­ments

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

The smart­phone world is dom­i­nated by three plat­forms – An­droid, iOS and Win­dows Phone. If your budget is be­low`10,000, the only op­tions are An­droid and Win­dows Phone. While there are a plenty of An­droid smart­phones from var­i­ous brands, Nokia is the only one in the Win­dows Phone space. Even so, the Lu­mia 520, in­tro­duced last year was one of the most pop­u­lar phones. Nokia has now in­tro­duced a suc­ces­sor – the Lu­mia 525. The Nokia Lu­mia 525 is largely a replica of its pre­de­ces­sor. There are many sim­i­lar­i­ties. Two dif­fer­ences are the su­per sen­si­tiv­ity mode where the screen can be used with gloves on and the dou­ble tap that can wake up the phone. The Lu­mia 520 had 512MB RAM, which wasn’t suf­fi­cient for switch­ing be­tween apps or play­ing games. The phone would slow down. Nokia has ad­dressed this prob­lem by adding 1GB RAM to the Lu­mia 525. It still continues to have a dual core Qual­comm Snap­dragon pro­ces­sor with 8GB of in­ter­nal stor­age. The Win­dows Phone 8 Black OS im­proves the over­all us­abil­ity and per­for­mance. There is a suite of new apps in­clud­ing the Nokia Cam­era app found in the high end Nokia phones. The 5MP cam­era on­board cap­tures good im­ages in day­light.
