After the record breaking sale of their budget smart phone Lumia 520, Nokia launches a similar product with a bit of tweaks and upgrade.


Nokia Lumia 525 is practically same as Nokia Lumia 520, except it is loaded with a 1 GB of RAM, which would expand the app compatibility. As we all know some of the apps in Windows phone are incompatible with a 512 MB of RAM so, a upgrade in RAM will mean a lot for users as they will now be able to get benefit of using other apps as well including the famous temple run 2,which is in fact incompatible with 512 MB of RAM.

Since Nepalese market has been digesting the device so well, i think this upgrade shall certainly entice some users towards this platform. Even the price is enticing, you’re right just $199!
