Nokia Lumia 525 is a decent quality Windows Phone 8 phone launched in 2013, which counts with a 5 mega-pixels back side camera, a 4" multi-touch capacitive screen and a powerful Dual-Core processor clocking at 1 GHz.

Nokia sells the Nokia Lumia 525 with a powerful 1000 MHz Dual-Core processing unit, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8227 chip and 1 GB RAM. Collaborating with graphic rendering, it also counts with an Adreno 305 GPU working at 450 megahertz. A good advantage of the Nokia Lumia 525 is its quite large 8 GB internal storage and an external memory slot, allowing the user to store hundreds of apps without running out of space.

This phone doesn't feel very lightweight for a phone of this size, weighting 4.37 oz. This device is available in many color variations, black, yellow, red and white. This cellphone is incredibly slim and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.39 inches.

Nokia equipped this cellphone with a nice 4 inches display, and a resolution of 800 x 480 , which makes all pictures and movies look very good. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This cellphone only has a 5 megapixels back side camera. It also captures videos in HD 1280x720 at 30 frames per second. In addition, the camera includes geo tagging and auto-focus.

The Lumia 525 offers WiFi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a wireless modem or router), 4G HSPA+ connection type, which is not so fast as LTE networks or the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Micro SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

This phone comes with a 1430 mAh medium sized battery that can keep this phone running for several hours, but you may need to charge it if you use it too much. This cellphone has an estimated stand by time of 336 hs and a talk time of 16.9 hs.

This cellphone is being sold for around 139 dollars, similar to other same level phones. If you are looking for a cellphone majorly for internet broswing and social networks, you will definitely be very pleased with it.
