The Verdict

There isn’t much happening with the Nokia Lumia 525 compared to the previous Nokia Lumia 520. A lot of the specifications of Lumia 520 is the more or less the same as Lumia 525.

When Nokia launched Lumia 520, it had many takers then probably because a lot of users had viewed it as great upgrade from the previous Lumia models and that really did it for Nokia but comparing this with Nokia 525 , it seems a bit disappointing because in terms of of looks and colors and other specifications , you can’t really term the Nokia 525 is a big change or upgrade.

A little dampener is that the Nokia Lumia 525 is slated to release in November 2013 to specific regions in Asia and then in the US and Middle-East but looks Unlikely at this point in UK. The Nokia Lumia is slated to first release in Singapore on December 14 and will cost around 1199 dollars.

There is isn’t really much point in spending that amount of money and wait for Lumia 525 when you can just go to  a Nokia  store and purchase a Lumia 520. It just doesn’t make sense, you might as well can go and buy a Samsung or an HTC device or even SONY Xperia (which has a very good range of models) considering if you’re not an ardent fan of Nokia.

Nokia Lumia 525 could’ve given its competitors a tough fight had the Nokia Lumia 525 was unique in design or specifications So all in all Nokia Lumia 525 is off to a disappointing start with not many great changes either in design or structure or specifications.
