The Nokia Lumia 635 may not have all the latest hardware or the most attractive design, but it certainly works well. Nokia’s Windows Phones run the gamut from premium devices to low-end handsets, but they typically come at a good price, regardless of hardware.
There’s a headphone jack at the top of the device, a Micro USB port on the bottom, and a volume rocker right above the power button on the right hand side.
Nokia offers the 635 in yellow, orange, and black, with the option to change covers at will.
However, once we got used to it and learned that we could alter the color scheme, things got better. You can still rearrange apps, remove the ones you don’t use from the home screen, and pin new ones to it. Although Microsoft doesn’t let users install third-party keyboard apps just yet, Windows Phone 8.1 has a great Swype-like keyboard that lets you type like normal or skim over keys in a swiping motion.
The Windows Phone 8.1 update also added the Action Center, which is reminiscent of the Control Center on iOS devices.
Just like the previous model, the Lumia 630, the 635 is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, running at 1.2GHz, and has 512MB of RAM. Nonetheless, the Lumia 635 is great for everyday Internet searches, Facebook viewing, tweeting, and email.
It comes with only 8GB of storage, but you can store all your photos and music on a MicroSD card. Perhaps the saddest thing about the Lumia 635 is the complete lack of a front-facing camera. Colors look bleached in bright sunlight and focusing in on small details leaves objects in the background blurry. However, if you’re going to take advantage of your LTE data plan, the battery will drain remarkably fast. The Nokia Lumia 920 may be one of the best looking smartphones out there right now but it’s also one of the most business friendly.
It would be easy to choose 10 apps from the Nokia Collection, such as HERE Drive for getting around, to new apps such as Nokia Conference when needing to make business calls. PaperPress for Instapaper is a free app allows you to view your unread, liked, and archived articles, browse and view articles from your folders, and to view articles using a number of stylish themes (including an exclusive Instapaper theme). Manage all your passwords securely and conveniently on the phone that’s always with you.
Every business user knows that their day is filled with an overflowing ToDo list and managing that list is a job in itself.
Weave News Reader is exclusive to Windows Phone and is a news reader that allows you follow any website or blog you are interested in. RapDialer is a great app that allows you to make dialling contacts and colleagues quick and hasslefree. If business trips are a constant part of the working week then you’ll need something like Business Trip to help organise your life and keep everything in check. Nokia set the bar pretty high with its 41MP pro Lumia phone camera, but now a new detachable lens makes it possible for other smartphone users to take professional-looking pictures with their humble handset.
The Olloclip iPhone attachment, pictured, comes with four lenses that create a range of photo effects including fisheye and wide-angle, plus 10x and 15x macro zoom. Recent research from Pew found that 82 per cent of smartphone owners use their handsets to take pictures. Nokia's Lumia 1020 even comes with a professional-quality 41MP camera with advanced white balance, exposure and zoom features.
Olloclip is made of aluminimum and has been designed to take photos that are 'edge-to-edge' with less lens distortion than traditional or basic lenses. The left-hand image was taken using Olloclip's fisheye lens, which has a 180-degree field-of-view.
The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. When the Nokia Lumia 520 was launched at the Mobile World Congress event last year, not many knew that the company just introduced its first best seller in the Lumia series.
So, in the series of upgrades that Nokia delivered to existing hardware with small changes, aka adding a 5 to the model number and re-releasing it, we now have the Lumia 525 that fixes the one issue that most wanted fixed.
Being only a slight variant of the Lumia 520, the 525 looks very similar to its predecessor of sorts. We have the white version with us, which has now adopted a glossy finish rather than the matte one that the company decided on using, for the 520.
We have the 4 inch display on the front, flanked by the Windows Phone capacitive shortcuts at the bottom along with the mic wedged between the frame and the glass front. Above the display we have the ear piece and the pair of proximity and ambient light sensors, and that pretty much covers the front of the device.
Turning to the back, we have the 5 megapixel camera unit, the Nokia logo and way below, the loud speaker. Underneath the back cover we have the micro SIM and micro SD card slots for single SIM connectivity and storage expansion up to 64 GB. That said, if you already have seen the Lumia 520 up close, don’t expect any surprises, it is literally just the same phone in a glossy shell from the outside. The display unit on the Lumia 525 is the same good old 4 inch IPS LCD unit that we saw on the 520. But of course, head on, this is one of the better displays we find in this price range and one wouldn’t be disappointed if media consumption is one of the main use cases.
The Adreno 305 chugs along just fine for casual games but starts lagging when one throws heavier games at it.
Not that encouraging, but as you saw in the gaming video above, the casual games don’t pose much of a threat to the performance and the general UI performance is as good as ever. Now, the biggest change, like we mentioned earlier, is the inclusion of 1 GB of RAM on the device. With rumours of Windows Phone 8.1 bringing app installation support on the SD card, this might be a non-issue in a few months but for now, this is a big issue if you are looking at installing a lot of games. The camera unit, the only one that sits on the back of the phone is a 5 megapixel unit, the same as the Lumia 520. The output seems richer and less washed out in comparison, but it still has the same amount of detail that one would expect from a mid-range 5 megapixel ?” sensor. The 525 can record videos at 720p resolution only, but it does come with high quality audio, even when it’s just mono. While the phone can technically record only 720p videos, it does have the ability to play 1080p videos out of the box. With a micro SD card expansion slot supporting cards up to 64 GB, storing media shouldn’t be a problem as the camera natively allows you to store the entire collection on the SD card, but as mentioned earlier, we still wait for the crucial app support. Coming to software, the Lumia 525 runs on the latest update of Windows Phone – the GDR3 with Nokia’s own Lumia Black firmware update on top.
Windows Phone on the whole needs to improve a lot, both in terms of features and the app ecosystem but we can finally say that the latter has improved a lot in the past few months. Besides that, Nokia usually has good bundled offers with its devices, in terms of software.
With a big Windows Phone update all set for an April reveal, we can only hope that some of the long standing complaints about lack of features are fixed and more apps make their way onto the store.
So the verdict is, if you are looking for a budget device that performs great with attractive build quality and a decent camera as bonuses, go for the Lumia 525. Bharadwaj is obsessed with technology and is a self taught designer who covers news, writes features, reviews, loves to take photos and produces videos. What we do like about the Nokia Lumia 920 leather pocket case, though, is the rather ingenious ribbon built into the case. There is a magnetised flap that hides the top of the ribbon away and is also intended to stop the Nokia Lumia 920 from sliding out.
Now, the manufacturer description suggests the flap is there to prevent the Nokia Lumia 920 from accidentally slipping out of the case. There are things we like about the Nokia Lumia 920 leather pocket case, it’s low cost, low impact on size and weight and ingenious ribbon device.
The first cell phone with a built-in camera was manufactured by Samsung and released in South Korea in June of 2000. There’s a strong argument that the first real camera phone was produced by Sharp and released in Japan by J-Phone (now SoftBank Mobile) in November of 2000. Nokia naturally retaliated with models like the 3.2MP N73, but in 2007 the feature phone reached its pinnacle.
Samsung produced the first 5-megapixel camera phone, but the first one to prove really popular was Nokia’s N95. To put it in perspective, the original iPhone hit the market a few months after the N95, in June 2007, and it had a 2MP camera with no flash or auto-focus and no video recording capability.
In 2008 the Samsung i8510, also known as the INNOV8, held the first 8MP camera to hit the market, but in design terms Samsung was copying the wrong company.
The race for megapixels continued and Samsung hit 12MP first with the M8910 Pixon12 in 2009. As HTC tries to convince us that a 4-megapixel camera is enough in its HTC One, Nokia is re-igniting the battle with a typically ferocious assault. Whether we actually need the cameras in our phones to be too much better than they are now is debatable, but you could say that about a lot of tech. The Nokia Lumia 1020 reigns supreme in terms of still photography in the 2013 smartphone world, it seems, but challengers do keep popping up.
I cannot emphasise enough that my intention here was not to denigrate the Lumia 920 camera - it's simply standing in for the 'everyman' camera phone, and is up against three devices for which the camera is a major selling point.
I've scored each photo from each device, partly for fun, to look at the total at the end, out of 90. Down at the local ford in sunshine, the handy depth board at the other side provides a good reference point for detail.
This first shot really sets out the Lumia 1020's mission of taking the naturalistic shots from the 808's sensor and sharpening and saturating them - the end result is impressive though, always staying just the right side of over-processing.
Again with a degree of zoom, this time on all four devices, simply to get me closer to the (horse) subject.
Again, the Lumia 1020 knocks it out of the park, with a zoomed image that's incredibly clear and detailed. Having had mixed results with a degree of zoom above, I thought I'd try again, but at full PureView zoom on the two Nokias (2.5x), and this time with a static subject that wasn't going to go around munching grass between shots! There is nothing like brickwork and regular detail to cause systems with heavy image processing to come a cropper, and this is true here.
Let's step towards the typical comfort zone of an Android-powered smartphone camera - macros.
In truth, all four phone cameras do a decent enough job here, though the snaps from the 808 and 920 are a little blown out, in terms of handling the sunshine reflections. An acid test for any camera's image processing is how it handles greenery - masses of detail with very similar colour. As you might expect, the Nokia 808's photo looks utterly natural, with perfect detail and colouring, there's no image processing at all going on here (apart from the usual PureView oversampling) - this is how it should be done.
Another macro, hoping to get the G2 back into its comfort zone, this time in good light of a wristband of my daughter's.
Focussing this close is tricky for the two Nokia PureViews, since there's a much larger minimum focussing distance (a consequence of the optics used), so in each case I had to hold the phone slightly further away and then use some PureView zoom back 'in'.


It's a typical moody indoor shot, naturally lit (so no flash), with the focus being on the radio. Now, with low light comes the supremacy of Nokia's larger sensors in the 808 and 1020, in theory. The photo that looks closest to reality is the Lumia 1020's, with good colouration and with the OIS producing a wonderfully crisp scene, even though I was shooting handheld. Which is a very fair summary of my impressions after taking so many shots and scenes with all four smartphone cameras.
Leaving the Nokia Lumia 1020, performing well in almost every test above and (leaving aside the no-longer-produced 808) head and shoulders above the 2013 smartphone competition when it comes to still photography. All About Windows Phone provides an independent source of news, reviews, apps and more to the Windows Phone ecosystem. Microsoft Lumia 650 Windows Phone 10 : Discover the benefits of a seamless cross-device Windows 10 mobile experience in a precision crafted package. Experience a crisp and bright viewing experience, even in direct sunlight, with a super sharp 5’’ HD OLED display that sits elegantly in a precision crafted, diamond cut metal frame. At just $100 unsubsidized, the Lumia 635 is one of the cheapest smartphones with decent specs that you’ll find anywhere, whether you’re looking at Windows Phones or Android devices. The question is: are the concessions worth the price, or is the Lumia 635 too basic for you? These two buttons are glossy and smooth, while the white back of our review unit had a nice, matte finish. The plastic seems strong, but the white shell gets dirty quickly and easily picks up random streaks of dirt, ink from pens, and other materials it encounters during the day. The Windows button, back, and search keys are located on the screen itself, detracting from the overall display size.
Microsoft’s aesthetics aren’t for everyone and unfortunately, there’s very little you can do to change the overall look of the operating system. You could argue that Windows Phone is the boldest and most colorful mobile OS out there, and you’d be right.
Yeah, it’s not on Windows Phone and unless the fledgling OS picks up more users, it may never be. In addition to listing all your notifications, the Action Center has shortcuts for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, brightness, camera, airplane mode, rotation lock, and more. Even though it measures 4.7-inches diagonally, the navigation buttons eat up some screen real estate, as do the navigation bars when you’re using Internet Explorer.
In the AnTuTu benchmark test, the Lumia 635 scored 11802, which is lower than the 12492 fellow budget phone Moto E scored.
Most apps and webpages loaded quickly and downloads from the app store didn’t take too much time. The 635 has a 5-megapixel sensor centered in the back of the phone that takes okay pictures. The camera is better at taking landscape shots than close ups, but even those aren’t the best.
We experienced no hiccups during this part of the testing, though we did notice that LTE cuts down on battery life, though. After a full day’s use, the 635 was still going strong and we found that it could last up to 12 hours on a single charge with mild use.
Listening to music from Spotify over LTE decimates the battery in less than three hours, and watching video cuts it down to about four hours. With full Windows 8 compatibility and even Office rocking on your phone there is no reason why it can’t be your mobile office.
However, we thought we’d take a look at the wider Windows Phone 8 ecosystem and see which other apps you can tap into on your Nokia Lumia 920.
Simply search for your old app and you’ll be given a list of alternative apps available on Windows Phone. Account Tracker is a personal finance app that helps you track spending and monitor balances across multiple accounts. The single master password you select is used to encrypt all the other passwords in your collection using AES-256 encryption. To find a blog you can use the built-in news sources grouped by categories and then simply carry out a search. However, if you’re looking for an additional business push, then Box offers a further 5GB free. With this app you can not only track your expenses but also track flights, transport and hotel accommodation.
The Olloclip attachment comes with four lenses that create a range of photo effects including fisheye and wide-angle, plus 10x and 15x macro zoom.
Most high-end phones now feature between 5MP and 8MP cameras as standard, with a range of editing tools and settings. Olloclip's four quick-change lenses are similar to those available with larger DSLR cameras and work in photo and video modes. It went on to become the most popular Windows Phone ever made, for the fantastic value it offered for the money. Hence the Lumia 525 comes with 1 GB of RAM and a minor look and feel refresh but overall retains everything else about the Lumia 520 because may be Nokia thought “why fix something that isn’t broke?”. This also makes for a miniscule change to the already gently curved corners, which look smoother on the 525, but really hard to distinguish even when compared side by side with the 520.
It is a handy device, with relatively small dimensions compared to the recent juggernauts Nokia has released.
This chipset consists of a 1 GHz Dual Core processor, Adreno 305 for graphics and several other components as a part of the system on a chip. Windows Phone is known to be light and zippy even on stringent hardware, and considering that the MSM8227 is capable enough, general usage is not much of a problem on the Lumia 525. Firstly, it brings support for more games, like Subway Surfers, which still have support only for devices with 1 GB of RAM and even demanding apps like Nokia Refocus.
This might seem plenty at first, but once you start installing apps and games, the memory quickly fills and that is not just the user memory getting filled here, the system buffs up too. There is no LED flash or secondary microphone here and the performance remains just about the same.
It does not take the best photos, but it sure does have the best interface for a mobile phone camera out there.
It can play even more formats thanks to third party apps like MoliPlayer Pro that bring subtitles support and so forth. Otherwise there is nothing special here, we however expect Nokia to unveil Dual SIM Windows Phones real soon. Popular social networks like Instagram and Vine now have official apps on the platform and we keep seeing quality games releasing on the Windows Phone Store, including extremely popular ones like Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers. Even if you use the device sparingly, it might definitely need a charge overnight, as the battery has the tendency to last around 16-18 hours max. Nokia has fixed one of the biggest complaints of the most popular Windows Phone, hoping it can extend the perceived lifetime of the successful device with a minor upgrade. Otherwise, you have a lot of options and a kind reminder that MWC is just around the corner. The innovative Windows Phone 8 smartphone has been designed to be tough and durable as well as great looking. We’ve found it a bit thin and would have liked a little more in the lining stakes but it works effectively enough. The Nokia Lumia 920 fits in the case with ease and there is minimal impact on size and weight. Few of us see the need to carry a dedicated device for taking photos or videos anymore, and digital camera sales have slumped. The J-SH04 could take photos, like the one on the right (from Japanese site Showcase) at 110,000-pixel resolution or 0.11-megapixels. Canalys reported that over half of the phones sold worldwide in the first 9 months of 2004 had cameras in them, and two-thirds of all the phones shipped in the third quarter were camera phones. Not only did it boast a 2MP camera, it also had Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, and an LED flash. Carrying Sony’s Cyber-shot digital camera branding there were quite a few decent releases intended to steal Nokia’s camera phone crown, not least the Sony Ericsson K800i released in 2006. It was a chunky slider packed with features, but none were as impressive as that 5-megapixel camera with the Carl Zeiss lens. This release looked like part of Nokia’s N range, but these designs were growing steadily less popular. It was soon bested by Nokia’s N8 in 2010 and the 16MP Sony Ericsson S006 at the end of the year. The Chicago Sun-Times publicly sacked photographers and expects iPhone-toting reporters to take their own photos. It’s worth mentioning that Nokia’s first 41-megapixel camera phone was the PureView 808 in early 2012, but because it was stuck on Nokia’s old Symbian smartphone OS (the same one as the N95), sales were nothing special. In this case the LG G2, with 13MP sensor and OIS, inset into a sleek and large-screened body. The OIS itself, at least in my steady hands, will come into play more in the second part of this shootout, when I tackle video capture, but LG does seem to have a fairly good handle on image processing, with some stunning results from what is (relative to the monsters in the Nokia Lumia 1020 and 808) quite a small sensor, as you'll see. If you want to do your own crops then the original JPGs are also mostly available, linked in each case, should you not agree with my own assessments! But hopefully the 920's inclusion will provide a sense of perspective of how good the other three devices actually are. The Nokia 808's shot here is nigh on perfect, with no image processing at all - look at the brickwork beside the window. Think grass or, as here, a tree, shot over my garden fence (and with a little PureView zoom used on the 808 and 1020, to get 'past' the fence and to better frame the subject). The Lumia 1020 rather changes the colouring in favour of brighter, more saturated greens (to my eye, the 808 nailed the colour) and you can see how the sharpening is just starting to damage the image quality. The LG G2 absolutely nails the shot, with perfect colour (the lettering really is gold-flecked and not silver) and detail. The 808 achieves an almost perfect photo here, with very low levels of noise, good detail and fairly accurate colours. It's the realm of Xenon flash and the scourge of LED-equipped Android and iOS phones across the globe.
The G2, also with OIS, gets close in terms of detail, but adds a reddish tint again - the effect isn't unpleasant, but it's not how the scene looked to me.
The Nokia 808 flies the flag for ultra-natural photography very well, but is starting to fall behind in not having OIS, plus there's the not inconsiderable issue of the underlying platform and the continuing withdrawal of support by Nokia.
With refined performance and premium design, the Microsoft Lumia 650 is the clever choice for your business. With lightweight design, a thin 6.9mm profile and 16GB of internal memory, the Lumia 650 has the perfect combination of premium looks and performance-driven features. The Windows-based smartphone has a 8 Megapixel main-camera with 2x digital zoom and a powerful built-in flash. It was jarring at first to see all the little tiles and squares on the Lumia 635’s screen, instead of app icons. Although big-name apps like Facebook, Netflix, and Pandora are available, most new apps take much longer to appear on Windows Phone than they do on iOS or even Android. That’s the downside to Microsoft’s mobile OS, but luckily, more apps are arriving in the store every day.


You can decide which controls you want to have access to at all times in the settings menu. It’s not HD and it’s certainly not high-end, but as far as budget phones go, the 635’s screen is A-okay. The resulting effect is that the display seems smaller than it actually is and feels almost as cramped as the iPhone 5S’s 4-inch screen. What’s more, with its built in notifications and Live Tiles, if you don’t find quite what you’re looking for, you can be alerted when a new match becomes available.
What we like about the app is the clean, intuitive user interface that makes it easy to set up alerts, as well as bill reminders, budgets and reports.. What’s more, Box makes it easy to access and edit your files, share content and stay connected with your team from anywhere on any device. With its smart search and full test search modes you’ll find this app is a faster and easier way to make the most of the dialler on Windows Phone 8.
You can store the receipts by taking a picture and attaching it to each trip and even create and send the report by email. Each lens can be used interchangeably, simply by screwing them on and off, and the whole system costs A?69.99. The macro lenses are built into the attachment, which can be flipped over depending on the level of zoom required and whether a user wants to use the front - or rear-facing camera on their phone.
But there was one longstanding issue that Nokia had to fix, the small amount of RAM that denied a lot of people new games and apps that were trickling down to Windows Phone.
So, how does the Lumia 525 match up to the newly re-invigorated competition, and what does the 1 GB of RAM bring?
The replaceable back covers are the only change from the 520 and it is more of a change in materials than design. While the quality remains as good as ever, glossy materials bring with them the side effects of scratches and dust. Coming in at 9.9mm of thickness and 124g of weight, it is not sleek but light enough by today’s standards. Good because it has decent pixel density at 233 ppi, has super sensitive touch and is made with the IPS technology, but the bad still prevails. That said, the double tap to wake and super sensitivity options are indeed added advantages if the overall screen is taken into account.
Yes, this is the exact same one that Nokia uses on its other Lumia phones, including the 520, 620 and the 720. So, we are left with too little of space to install big games that are now finally supported on the Lumia 525.
Worth of games free just for the Lumia 525, but you wouldn’t even be able to take advantage of it in the right way, unfortunately. But at launch, the Lumia 525 comes with more capabilities thanks to the latest Lumia Black firmware update that brings new camera algorithms and support for the excellent Nokia Camera app.
The Nokia Camera not only brings a refreshing UI, but also features that you wouldn’t see on budget devices, like the ability to control focus and exposure. So, in case you are looking for media playback capabilities, the Lumia 525 should be totally fine.
These deal breakers have been slowly eliminated but we feel there is still a lot of work to be done in bringing more first party apps to the platform, mainly that of the wearables, preferably. The power saving mode on Windows Phone kicks in if the battery goes below 20% by default, but switching it on earlier doesn’t really help because the main power draw seems to be constant usage more than anything else. Considering this is not exactly a successor kind of device, it might be unfair to expect a front facing camera or even a LED flash, but we certainly would have loved those additions. However, we know many people like the idea of a protective case so we thought we’d check one out. The camera and the phone components were essentially separate devices housed in the same body. The real difference between it and the Samsung SCH-V200 was the fact that the J-SH04 allowed you to send your photos electronically. We even covered the trend by reporting that camera phones rival DVD players sales back in November 2003. It will probably be best remembered for that rotating screen, which gave it a camcorder feel. Nokia followed suit with the N86, but it was LG that released the first touchscreen camera phone with an 8MP camera. It was also vital for manufacturers to produce slim, attractive devices, and the really powerful camera phones up to that point had all been seriously chunky. We’ve also seen more filters and effects baked into the various mobile platforms, but these are largely things that apps have offered for a long time now. Even Samsung’s camera focused S4 variant, the Zoom, only has a 16-megapixel sensor (although the optical zoom is its key feature). That may not be the wisest decision, but the fuss it generated was more focused on the skills of the photographer than the equipment. Windows Phone is a lot better, but it remains to be seen how many people will be tempted in. In any case, you can be certain that the camera phone war is far from over.
It was only natural to compare the cameras of each, in this, part 1 of a two part shootout, though I added a couple of extra reference points to the mix in the older Nokia 808 (sorry, couldn't help myself) and the mainstream Lumia 920.
The 808's image is probably closer to what's being registered on the sensor, but it's somehow not quite as satisfying to the eye. The 1020's algorithms cause the image to descend into a slightly noisy, dithered mess, if you look closely enough, plus the fascia of the radio is really silver. As expected, the G2 produces a blurry, unusable mess, while the Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020 manage to freeze the moment.
The LG G2, the newest challenger, does wonders with a standard sized sensor in most light conditions, but falls badly behind when light gets low, especially for living subjects, while the reference device here, the more humble Lumia 920, even with its fixed up camera software, simply can't capture good enough photos when tested at this level. With robust built-in security features and one-click Office 365 set up, the Lumia 650 with Windows 10 and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor works seamlessly with your company’s Microsoft IT platforms. The latest mobile versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and OneNote are built in and fully-optimized for touch screens. Yes, they do rear their heads once in a while but largely not much of a concern, as they still remain invisible (almost) over our time with the device.
Washed out colours, poor sunlight visibility and average viewing angles are expected at this price, but we feel Nokia could have done better.
Unsurprisingly, it exhibits similar performance characteristics as the other devices, like in games as well as in the regular UI, which is smooth and responsive. The main reason here is because those games demand 4 GB of installation space, which is impossible to gather even if you install only one 800 MB game. With shutter speeds that can be set upto 1 second, you can even take small light trail photos with the 520, which is a unique feature for a budget phone.
There is support for FM radio now which was added to Windows Phone with the GDR2 release along with Bluetooth 4.0 support but there is no NFC to be found here. It also comes with pre-installed apps like Zinio, Your Movies, and so on, with Your Movies offering a free 7-day trial for unlimited streaming and downloads of movies.
It certainly buckles under pressure, so heavy users need to be aware of this but again, since this is exactly the same as the 520, we can’t really expect much out of it. 10,400 the Lumia 525 offers a quality package, with unusually good performance, but as competition stiffens with the likes of Moto G and the other devices from local manufacturers, Nokia might just have to ready their successor really soon and push the Lumia 525 prices further down, while Microsoft has to quickly iterate on the software (a long time wish that is yet to happen) and make it more attractive, even just for the low end. Not only could you share these pictures wirelessly, they were good enough to print as well. The photo on the right was taken with the Sony Ericsson K790i variant which had the same camera. Some exasperated commentators also tried to point out that the quality of a camera is about more than just the number of megapixels. They’re great for people who want to spend the time getting into them, but most of us forget those kinds of novelties pretty quickly. It’s not unusual for a professional photographer to use an iPhone, and it’s far from the most powerful camera phone on the market.
I then shot the same nine scenes and subjects with all four, to place the phone cameras relative to each other. The G2 doesn't claim to have lossless zoom, but its native resolution is high enough that I thought I could risk playing with zoom anyway - judging from the blotchy result here, I think I was wrong to try zooming at all?
Look also at the detail in the white window frame - the 808 shows perfect white and detail, while the 1020 starts introducing noise and the G2 fails to resolve detail in the frame altogether. Cropping into the 10MP photo reveals a blotchy, noisy mess in completely the wrong colour, with even the venerable Lumia 920 producing a much more realistic image.
The 808 gets close in terms of detail but messes up the colour, while the 1020 gets close in terms of colour but clearly has trouble focussing perfectly at this distance. The G2's photo is also slightly mis-coloured, with a slight red tint, though LG's image processing does make a good fist of managing the noise, especially for such a relatively small sensor.
I'd give the nod to the 808 here, with more natural skin tones, while the Lumia 1020's 'party' shots all tend to have a slight yellow cast, but there's really not much in it. So whether you’re choosing a phone for work or managing an IT department, you get full integration with the Microsoft apps and services that keep you productive, connected and ready for anything.
Your Microsoft apps and services are synchronized across your Windows 10 devices via OneDrive, so all your photos and important documents are always with you when you need them.
With the acquisition set to be approved this quarter and the MWC lined up for next month, we might start to hear a lot more information along these lines. It had a dedicated camera button and a decent variety of settings, including a multi-shot option for taking eight quick photos in a row, and the ability to record your own shutter sound.

Say Microsoft decides to make 1 GB the minimum for the next update or may be certain features work only on 1 GB RAM devices, then the Lumia 525 is set to get them and won’t be left out. The Sanyo SCP-5300 also had a basic flash, white balance control, self-timer, digital zoom, and various filter effects like sepia, black and white, and negative colors. Other imaging features are: Geotagging, Touch focus, Face recognition, Landscape orientation, Full screen viewfinder, Auto and manual exposure, Auto and manual white balance, Automatic photo upload to web services and Full resolution photo and video upload.
