Budget 4G smartphone models have a special place in the prepaid marketplace, since they can help subscribers to compensate the costly 4G LTE data plans. For only 1GB of monthly data, prepaid subscribers in the United Kingdom need to spend £26 and £41 per month for 2GB. These amounts of data are not nearly enough for typical power users, so they may need to choose an affordable device to cut costs.
The Nokia Lumia 625 in an ideal prepaid smartphone for users who prioritize high-speed data connection, instead of premium hardware specs. The 1.2GHz single-core processor, provides buttery smooth experience and the 512MB of RAM is reasonably enough for daily multitasking tasks.
It has a reasonably large display for Windows Phone 8 smartphone, although the resolution is disappointingly low, at only 800×400. As a comparison, 4.5-inch plus Android devices typically use qHD, 720p or even 1080p resolution. Some budget users in the UK may not be fans of bigger devices, but the Lumia 625 is quite comfortable to use and relatively tactile for its size.
