Nokia Lumia 525 Red - Expert Reviews


Nokia has had a bumpy ride since the arrival of Android as the premium and most popular operating system for smartphones. In fact, the ride got so bumpy that Nokia struggled to keep itself afloat and ultimately had to go into the hands of Microsoft. Its eventual fate was not the worst that one would have imagined, for it has now almost singlehandedly changed the current scenario for the Windows software platform for smartphones. The hardware manufacturing remains the same keeping the sturdiness and the robustness of the gadgets intact. One of the successful series from Nokia in recent times has been the Lumia series and representing the same is the Nokia Lumia 525. Nokia Lumia 525 is a mid scale Windows phone that takes care of the basic aspects that are desired from a smartphone. Before anything, the gadget has a reasonably big screen size of 4 inches with super sensitive touch technology and an aspect ratio of 15:9. The WVGA display has a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels and a pixel density of 235ppi. The display is backed by IPS LCD technology that does give it a slight edge over other similarly priced smartphones.

Most Lumia handsets look good and are available in various colors and Nokia Lumia 525 too comes in Black, Orange, White and Yellow colours. As far as the dimensions go, the device comes with a height of 119.9mm, a width of 64mm and a thickness of 9.9mm. With a weight of 124 grams, the device features volume keys, camera key and a power/lock key as outside hardware controls. The Microsoft Windows phone 8 black operating system is chosen as the software platform of the device while the hardware includes 1GB RAM and a dual core 1GHz processor. The presence of 1GB RAM would always help the speed of the device especially when accessing multiple resources across the system. GPRS is class B for Internet support while EDGE works at a speed of 236.8Kbps. The high downloading speed offered by the gadget is of 21.1Mbps whereas the uploading speed offered is of 5.76Mbps. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hot spot are given too, but there are no DLNA or Wi-Fi direct connectivity options. Bluetooth and USB port represent the data connectivity features as well.

One of the major drawbacks with Nokia Lumia 525 is the absence of the secondary camera, which would deprive the user from the facility of web calling. The primary camera is reasonable though with 5 megapixels clicking images at 2592 by 1944 pixels resolution. Digital zoom can be used but the gadget lacks an LED flash as well. 8GB is more than good enough for a normal user and for those who love their collection of songs, games, images and videos to be in large proportion, can use the 64GB microSD card slot. Both 2G and 3G networks are compatible with the device supporting various frequency levels. The battery strength is robust and resilient to say the least with 1430mAh power backup giving a standby time of up to 336 hours and a talk time of up to 17 hours in 2G and up to 10 hours and 40 minutes in 3G. Also, 48 hours of nonstop music can be enjoyed without any stoppage.

Operating system and UI

Nokia Lumia 525 brings with it a 4 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with an average pixel density of 235ppi and a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels. The display is supported by the super sensitive touch technology and the various sensors present in the gadget include ambient light sensor, accelerometer sensor and proximity sensor. The display is also protected by the scratch resistant technology.

Other Features

Formats like MP3, WAV, eAAC+ and WMA player are supported by the music player application of Nokia Lumia 525 thus making sure that songs of desired nature can be heard either via loudspeakers or earphones. The video player can be a source of watching movies in various formats as well. The FM radio works as a tool for staying updated with the latest songs from the entertainment world.


The camera strength of 5 megapixels is a decent proposition to have in the camera department with the ability to capture images at a resolution of 2592 by 1944 pixels. There is no LED flash with the primary camera of Nokia Lumia 525 but digital zoom is provided. Another setback is the absence of a secondary camera, which means no video calling facility. Video recordings can be made at a resolution of 720 pixels.


A healthy download speed of up to 21.1Mbps is churned out by the Internet support of Nokia Lumia 525 whereas the upload speed stays at 5.76Mbps. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hot spot are great options for wireless access to web where the latter makes sure that the user can create another server for other compatible gadget(s) to connect to the web. When it comes to web surfing, the user gets a speed of 236Kbps from EDGE technology.


Memory is substantial with Nokia Lumia 525 that includes 8GB for containing data like songs, games, images and videos. The 64GB microSD card slot is another asset to have for stretching the external memory of the smartphone. Another 7GB of SkyDrive storage is also available with the gadget. RAM is also well within the acceptable range with 1GB.

Other Features

The Windows application domain is certainly smaller as compared to Android but it does not make it any less competitive in terms of quality. Nokia Lumia 525 can be used for downloading and enjoying various apps and games including WhatsApp or Viber via the Windows play store.


Nokia Lumia 525 is powered by a 1430mAh standard lithium-ion battery that gives away a standby time of up to 336 hours both in 2G and in 3G networks. The talk time in 2G is up to 17 hours while in 3G, it is up to 10 hours and 40 minutes. Music is accessible for up to 48 hours without the gadget switching off in between.


When it comes to connectivity, Nokia Lumia 525 does a fine job with the presence of USB port and Bluetooth. Both connectivity options allow data exchange whereas Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hot spot, GPRS, EDGE and HTML5 browser are important sources to access the Internet. The 2G SIM in the device works with frequencies of 850, 900, 1800 and 1900MHz while with 3G SIM, the operating frequencies include 900 and 2100MHz.

Other Features

Nokia Lumia 525 and Samsung Galaxy Core have different operating systems with Microsoft Windows Phone 8 Black operating system for the former and Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 for the latter. RAM is of 1GB for both the smartphones while the processor is also dual core. Both the gadgets come with 5 megapixels primary camera with more or less similar image quality. There is no secondary camera with Nokia Lumia 525 whereas Samsung Galaxy Core comes with a VGA secondary camera.

Nokia Lumia 525 does not have the LED flash facility, which is present in Samsung Galaxy Core. Samsung Galaxy Core features the dual SIM facility, which is not provided by Nokia Lumia 525. The battery strength of 1800mAh standard lithium-ion of Samsung Galaxy Core is better than the 1430mAh standard lithium-ion battery of Nokia Lumia 525, which allows the former to derive a longer standby time as compared to the latter. The talk time however still turns out to be longer in case of Nokia Lumia 525.
