The last year release of the Lumia series, the Lumia 625, offers the user with a colorful handset, similar to that of its siblings.
The handset runs smoothly on the Windows Phone 8 operating system and comes equipped with a specious 4.7-inch display for better viewing experience. The Lumia 625 is a budget friendly handset, which implies that the company has made certain compromises in terms of features and specifications. The low resolution screen of the handset is not just the only compromise made by the smartphone. Regardless, will the handset be able to compete with the likes of newly released Micromax Canvas 3D A115 handset? Read on to make an informed decision.
The Canvas series from Micromax, offers new handsets with different features across various price segments. The Canvas series from Micromax aims to provide the users with updated and upgraded smartphones at a very reasonable price. Well, this has raised a concern for most other smartphone manufacturers. Earlier, it was the Samsung Electronics that gave a tough time to other companies with its updated features and comparable price list and now, it would be Micromax to deal with. However, that is for other days to discuss.
Today, we would compare the Nokia Lumia 625 Windows Phone to that of the Micromax Canvas 3D A115 Android smartphone, with respect to their display features.
Nokia Lumia 625
Let us review the display features of the Nokia Lumia 625 Windows Phone. The Lumia 625 comes equipped with a 4.7-inch IPS LCD screen, the first largest display equipped in the Lumia series smartphones. The resolution of the Lumia 625 is on the lower side, which can be a little disappointing at times. It offers a WVGA resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, catering a fuzzy looking text on the screen. The overall display of the Lumia 625 is not sharp, due to low pixel density of 201-ppi (pixel per inch) only.
In terms of color reproduction, the Lumia 625 Windows Phone offers the user with washed out color quality. In addition, the colors also appear less lively than expected. Adding salt to injury, the visible light leak of most of Lumia 625 Windows Phones spoils the viewing experience, which has been admitted by the company, but further blamed on the limitations of LCD technology. The display does not offer sufficient brightness for great outdoor viewing experience and is hampered with loads of reflections.
Not everything about the display of the Lumia 625 is bad. The screen comes equipped with super sensitive touchscreen glass with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection against dust and scratches.
Micromax Canvas 3D A115
In comparison, the Micromax handset comes equipped with a decent 5-inch display, with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The screen resolution is lower with respect to the screen size. As a result, the pixel density also decreases to 187-ppi. The less sharp text and graphics add to the disappointing resolution of the Lumia 625. Outdoor visibility and viewing angles are also not up to the mark, despite being equipped with a highly reflective screen.
Regardless, the naked-eye 3D effect of the Canvas 3D is the saving grace for the handset. The use of parallax barrier technique by the display enables the user to view 3D content without wearing special glasses.
