Over all Review of Nokia Lumia 505

Nokia Lumia 505 Price

Overall Review

Nokia has seen some tough times over the years and the launch of Android has really made things difficult for them. Gone are the days when the Finnish firm was considered to be the true king of the smartphone world. A lot of people call for new measures or want the company to adopt Android as their smartphone platform but Nokia has stayed with its conviction and continuously keeping its faith in its home built operating system and the Windows platform. One of the more successful series from Nokia includes the Lumia range of smartphones. Lumia handsets have not exactly been a rage among the consumers but they certainly have been the first choice for those who have been searching for alternative for an Android handset.

Nokia Lumia 505 is another Lumia handset that garners a screen of 3.7 inches backed by a healthy pixel density of 252ppi and a respectable resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. The display is AMOLED capacitive touchscreen so the clarity is fantastic which should go down well with the users who are big on watching movies and related entertainment videos. The look of the device is pretty good which is surprising as most of the windows devices from Nokia have been really good on the look and feel factor. The dimensions of the smarphone are 118.1mm (length) x 61.2mm (height) and 11.3mm (thickness). With 131 grams, Nokia Lumia 505 is a sturdy gadget that can take a hit or two without getting damaged. The device has certain drawbacks or rather segments where it is weaker as compared to other gadgets including the low RAM of 256MB. This is one fourth of what the smartphone tends to offer today while the processor is also 800MHz that does not exactly blow you away. So this is not going to be the fastest device on the circuit something with which the users would have to deal with, but the operating system is formidable with Microsoft Windows Phone 7.8 that would allow the users to access loads of applications and games along with other exclusive windows treats. A lot of these treats would be dependent on the availability of web which the smartphone does not shy away from providing.

There is GPRS and EDGE along with the Wi-Fi facility to access any nearby available Internet connection. The users can download data at a healthy speed or surf websites like Facebook without much lag or delay due to buffering. Camera is awesome with Nokia Lumia 505 with 8 megapixels of sheer power providing wonderful images at a resolution of 3264 by 2448 pixels. Videos though are not high definition, in fact is pretty low on resolution with VGA quality. The device is available in 4 colors of black, white, red and pink. Nokia Lumia 505 runs on the standard lithium-ion battery of 1,300mAh that produces a talktime of up to 7 hours and 30 minutes in 2G and up to 7 hours and 15 minutes in 3G. The user can also listen to music for continuous 36 hours.

User Interface and UI functionality

Nokia Lumia 505 has a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a very good display quality bolstered by a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. Pixel density is also more than adequate with 252 pixels. The display is protected by the corning Gorilla Glass technology.

Multimedia features

Nokia Lumia 505 has loads of multimedia features including video player which works with the formats of MP4, H.264, H.263 and WMV player while the music player supports MP3, WAV, eAAC+ and WMA player. The former allows the users to watch videos of desired nature while the latter can be used to create a personalized musical list of songs that can be heard through the loudspeakers or through the earphones that can be attached to the gadget with the help of a 3.5mm jack. Another way to listen to popular music is through FM radio that can also record songs with the help of RDS technology.

Pictures and Video quality

Nokia Lumia 505 has a fantastic camera and as good as any other 8 megapixel camera we have seen till date. The primary shutter works at a resolution of 3264 by 2448 pixels and produces clear pictures, especially in low light. Features like auto focus, touch focus, LED flash and Geo-tagging further boosts the armory of the smartphone. There is no secondary camera which is something that is desired out of every smartphone from a popular brand. Video recordings are little less pleasing with VGA quality at 30fps.

Internet support

Nokia Lumia 505 comes with Wi-Fi for wireless access to various Internet connections in the vicinity. A downloading speed of 7.2mbps is not that fast but things do improve a bit with GPRS and EDGE technology. The former delivers a speed of upto 85.6kbps while the latter delivers 236.8kbps. Downloading of data like songs, games, images and videos can be done with ease but web surfing of websites like Facebook and YouTube takes a little longer than desired.

Internal and External Memory

Nokia Lumia 505 offers a 4GB internal memory which although is a good amount can run out in case the user decides to keep a heavy collection of data. There is another 7GB free skydrive storage space but unfortunately there is no microSD card slot which is a bummer. RAM is low with just 256MB.

Applications and Gaming

Nokia Lumia 505 comes with a limited number of pre-installed games although applications are in substantial number including Hotmail, Yahoomail, Outlook Mobile, Windows Live, Gmail, Mail For Exchange, Nokia Mail, Social Networking Services. The users can download loads of application from the online Windows store but when compared to Android, the number of offerings is far less.

Battery Backup

Nokia Lumia 505 is driven by the standard lithium-ion battery of 1,300mAh which gives great results in terms of talktime and standby time. The talktime offered by the device is up to 7 hours and 30 minutes in 2G along with up to 7 hours and 15 minutes in 3G. The standby time is up to 670 hours in 2G and up to 600 hours in 3G. Music play time is up to 36 hours which is also substantial.

Connectivity Offered

Nokia Lumia 505 has various data connectivity features including USB port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS and EDGE facility. The user can use these features for exchanging data or for connecting with the web. For 3G network, the device operates at the frequencies of 850/900. The 2G network works at frequencies of 850/900/1800/1900.

Compare

Nokia Lumia 505 when compared to Samsung Galaxy Y has a bigger screen with 3.7 inches for the former and 3 inches for the latter. The resolution and the pixel density is better for the display of Nokia Lumia 505 as compared to the one offered by Samsung Galaxy Y. Nokia Lumia 505 has AMOLED display while the same is TFT for Samsung Galaxy Y. Nokia Lumia 505 provides 8 megapixela primary camera while Samsung Galaxy Y has a 2 megapixela camera. Samsung Galaxy Y offers a microSD card slot which is absent in Lumia 505. Battery strength is 1,200mAh with Samsung Galaxy Y while the same is strong with Lumia 505 with 1,300mAh.
