    Advance wishes...if you ask me will say Lumia 630.. Only difference is 512MB RAM lesser than 525..but it really sports a new and faster processor..virtual navigation bar..Right now Microsoft is optimizing all the games to run in 512MB ram phone..

    Experience always overweight's specs. The L525 might have more RAM, so in theory you could run more games in the long run.

    But the L630 has more screen estate, on screen buttons (great for customization), faster CPU, better display, Gorilla Glass, somewhat better camera, better b battery and (depends on preference) better overall design.

    If those two are your options, I think it's rather easy what you should buy.

    If you want it for gamimg you should choose 525 because it has 1 GB Ram ! But it depends on you what is you requirement!

    If budget is your concern, you might also want to check some non-Lumia phones from Xolo or Micromax...again if you want to try a non-Lumia. Spec wise, they are slightly better than the Lumias, except the camera department. They come with 1GB RAM, front facing camera, microsd slot and dual SIM.

    Don't rule out the 525 too quickly.

    1 GB RAM, meaning more games (which some complain about on lower RAM devices, ugh all those Subway Surfer threads...)
    Camera button
    4" display, its smaller, but sharper, perhaps not as deep blacks as the 630
    actual soft buttons on the front, not lit however

    More cores, but not too big of a difference?
    Virtual buttons, comes down to personal preference I'd say
    No camera button
    harder to find batteries, but the battery is much larger
    Larger 4.5" display but isn't as sharp, supposedly better, but I can't say.

    No rumor for anything else, if you can pick up a secondhand/older device, like a 620, it probably is a good option.
