Nokia Lumia 520 vs Nokia Lumia 525

Is there much difference between the Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 525? All I'm seeing is 1GB RAM (525) vs 512MB (520)?

The Lumia 525 is the updated version of the highly successful Lumia 520. One of the important changes is a new design for the back, which mimics the appearance of the Lumia 720. The back covers are removable and come in a variety of glossy colors. Build quality is very good and the phone feels great to hold thanks to the compact size

The display on the 525 is identical to the 4.0" 800x480 IPS LCD panel on the 520. For the price, the screen is adequate in terms of size and resolution but the colors are a bit washed out.

Nokia has updated the RAM on the 525 to 1GB from 512MB on the 520. This should definitely help improve performance during multitasking and web browsing but will also make the phone compatible with all the apps on the store that require at least 1GB of RAM.

The Lumia 525 is priced at $170 at launch, which is a good entry point. Once again, we'll be taking a closer look as soon as we have the device at HQ.



Maybe the change of back design will eliminate the issue with the power switch.
Whatever they say on hukd I'd rather have the ram than not.

You'd have thought they could have found a few vga cameras to slap on the front...
