All the features expected from a 4G Lumia without the price tag.

Nokia have announced the release of the Nokia Lumia 625, a new 4G smartphone, powered by the latest version of Windows Phone 8 which includes the Nokia Lumia Amber update and delivers a rich and easy to use device without the usual £400 price tag.

The estimated price of the Lumia 625 - which will be available in a number of colours - is £200 before tax, and with 4G being rolled out across the UK will be a welcomed device into our shops. 

The 4.7inch screened smartphone opens up the world of high-end devices to more consumers, giving them the opportunity to experience the benefits of a better phone. 

Other features of Windows Phone 8 that are included are the Live Tiles which update to the users specification on the home screen, Xbox Live, Microsoft Office and 7GB of online SkyDrive storage. 

The Lumia 625 has access to over 165,000 apps including the likes of Vimeo, Temple Run and WhatsApp and hinting to its bigger brother the Lumia 1020 contains Nokia Smart Camera and Nokia Cinemagraph. 

Nicola Shenton, head of devices at EE, said: "4G is incredibly important for the future of mobile in the UK. With the new Lumia 625, Nokia is helping bring even more affordable, quality 4G devices to the market which will ensure 4G experiences are available to a broader audience."
