    So, I'm getting a 625 as I found a really special offer. My main concern is about the low-res screen. Is it that bad to have a 4,7 inch 480x800 screen with just 200 ppi?

    Oh, and could you post some screenshots from your homescreen and stuff? Just curious to see how does it look once screenshooted :p

    I'm buying this device anyways, I'm just deadly curious!

    I have had a Xperia with the same PPI and it's alright, not that bad, but now I use a 720p AMOLED and could never go back

    If you've seen a 520 in person, my impression is that they are similar.

    The resolution is "bad" for today's standards, but it isn't necessarily bad. People used the HTC Titan WP7 phones with the same resolution and size, and the Palm Pre had a "sharp" display at 185 ppi for its time, more than the earlier iPhone models, and I got by just fine. I'm definitely spoiled by the higher-end displays though.

    Also, screenshots from phone to phone are going to look the same, you would want photos.

    The screen PPI cannot be screen shoted lol. The best way is to visit a nearby shop and see.

    That was just to see how big it is and how many tiles it fits!

    As like most of the phones, it allows 2/3 midsize tiles, in fact all phones have the same layout except for big screened device like the Lumia 1520

    For the money, the screen is outstanding.

    The resolution works very well on the phone due to the screen size. Regarding the tiles, there is a option so you can get more tiles on the screen... I'll grab a screenshot of my phone and upload it in a few minutes.

    Make sure you're looking at it scaled to the 625's physical 4.7" display.
