    I've think about this for a while now, it seems my current phone has show it's age

    My phone is 625H a 625 Variant that lack LTE and Got 1Ghz speed, still even now it serve as great phone.

    I'm not so much into apps which only use FB,Twitter,LINE Whatsapp,Messenger ,Onedrive Skype which run great in this old phone

    I've this phone since it's first launch, having Amber firmware out of the box and get direct update over time

    The phone still responsive, durable, fast and good looking since I took good care of my stuff, but the battery has perform poorly recently

    I'm charging full and left home at 11:00 AM and the battery drop to 25% at 5:00 PM despite not really use it in class

    I do have 930 but my brother currently use it, I'm looking for mid range phone that won't kill my wallet since I've to pay full prices for that, my Plan is get the mid devices and swap back to 930 but if the mid range one turn to be a great devices maybe I'll use it instead

    Any idea? Thanks

    Battery issues for your phone most likely can be solved by getting a new battery if they are available. Since your phone is still fluid as it should be , getting a new device may not be a good idea

    However, if you are really interested in getting a new phone then I suggest you get the lumia 640 as that is a good upgrade and the price can be about 140USD before taxes and such. My brother bought one a few months back for 180USD (18000 Kenyan Shillings)

    Then I suggest getting the 640. It's the best specs for its price. 640 xl is also good though much bigger

    . I just got my 640 Last Friday as a replacement of my also old520 and I am loving it. Battery life is very good. At the end of the day I have still 40% left. (normal usage) Apps load almost instantly. Screen feels very smooth. So I also highly recommended the 640

    640 & 640xl both are good phones to consider.

    Yep, I would agree with the 640 or the xl of it for something new. If you don't mind a little older, the 735 or 830 is also a nice option, the latter if you prefer physical buttons, including a camera button.

    nokia lumia 625 battery | eBay + toolkit + teardown video off YouTube = battery replacement.

    But I agree the 640 is a smart upgrade. If you are in the US, Best Buy and Amazon have 640 GoPhone now for only $47.99. You can't find a better cellular value anywhere. http://forums.windowscentral.com/mic...uy-amazon.html

    Thanks 4 the suggestion, after doing some research I found that 640LTE is about 2.399.00 IDR

    I'm anticipating 650/550 would be cheaper what do you thing about those 2

    735 never available here nor 830,

    And I can always ask for my 930 back

    The 550 is a solid device, but if you care for the camera in low light performance, the 550 will be a disappointment. The 640 is better in such situations, and based on specs, the 650 will match it.

    To me it looks like 650 will be the 550+camera from 640+nice finish...

    Considering how oddly the Lumia's are often priced, the 650 may not necessarily be cheaper than the 640
