It will reportedly be a low-end phone for about $325 USD

Nokia is on the verge of releasing another Lumia, but this time, it'll be a low-end model with the largest screen the company has unveiled yet. 

Nokia will launch the Lumia 625 in the coming weeks, which is an effort to offer more affordable Windows Phones. The new phone will feature a 4.7-inch screen, which will make it one of the larger Lumia's to date. 

The Lumia 625 will also have a a dual-core 1.2GHz S4 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera and a 800 x 480 (WVGA) resolution.

It's expected to launch at about $325 USD in a variety colors. However, a solid release date for the U.S. hasn't been announced yet. 

It's important for Nokia to release less-expensive models of its Lumia line so that it can reach many different people with different price points. 

A lot of the Lumia phones, such as the recently-announced Lumia 1020, are high-end devices that pack a ton of features for a steeper price. For instance, the 1020 -- which will have features like a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core, 2GB DRAM, LTE, NFC and a whopping second generation 41 MP, 1/1.5" sensor with 1.1 micron backside illuminated (BSI) pixels -- will run about $602 USD.

How can I say bad things about Windows Phone when in nearly 3 years its never frozen, hung, or needed to be rebooted especially when my wife is pulling the battery on her android monthly and getting the black screen of death?

Myopic much?

Don't like the factory installed radio in your car you change it Microsoft is no different dont like the start menu change it.

That's not a valid argument. See what we mean? You just straight up refuse to acknowledge that Windows 8 was and still is a conceptually flawed OS for a desktop PC. It's a mobile touchscreen-centric UI married to mouse and keyboard systems.

The fact that you can essentially hack the OS with third party programs not supported by Microsoft in an attempt to remedy the flaw, doesn't mean the flaw doesn't exist. It's there. Admit it!

A flaw prevents you from doing something. There is no flaw preventing you from doing something.

You just don't like it.

EDUCATION: A flaw prevents you from doing something.

Uhh sorry professor but that's not education. A flaw is something that is implemented poorly/incorrectly.

It doesn't have to prevent me from doing something...

BIAS: You just don't like it.

Nope. Windows 8 is objectively flawed as a desktop OS compared to Windows 7. Fact!

Serious question. Have you ever used Windows Phone for a length of time?

As much as you appear to announce your hatred for Windows Phone and Windows 8, your comments are always everywhere to be found in related articles.

What is with your constant urge to put the platform down? It's evident that you're a big fan of Google, but just because other peoples' tastes differ to yours, that doesn't make them wrong.

Or do you have a secret love for Windows Phone? ;)
