A big, bold Lumia smartphone

Nokia went big with the Lumia 625, making it the largest Lumia device to date (as of late August 2013). The device sports both top-of-the-line and budget features, which add up to an impressive midrange device with a few weak points.

Colorful back cover

Nokia's penchant for making bright phones in obvious with the Lumia 625, which comes in neon red-orange, yellow, green, black, and white.

Easy to hold

The slim design and rounded corners make the Lumia 625 easy to hold. Its smooth matte finish on the back cover is easy to grip and feels nice in your hands.

Low-end camera

The only parts of the Lumia 625 that really scream budget phone are its cameras. The phone has two: a 5-megapixel back camera and a 0.3-megapixel front camera.
