Planning to buy a new Windows phone? Are you confused whether Windows Phone suits you? Here I have given five best feature in Nokia Lumia Windows Phone which will be helpful to buy Windows Phone. Read the article below to know more about Windows Phone.

There will be a great dilemma while you plan to purchase a new phone. You may spend lot of time to study about the phones. I am using Nokia Lumia phone and studied some features which are unique and best. Let me share those feature in this article.

Nokia HERE Maps

It is a GPS navigation map which can be accessed without data connection. This application was present in Nokia Symbian S60 handsets. In Lumia phones this map has been improved a lot. It is faster and is available in 3-D mode. To use the offline map, it is required to download through internet. Once the download is complete, data connection is not necessary to use maps. There are other application under maps category by Nokia, they are HERE Drive and HERE Transit. Here Drive is best while driving car and HERE Transit for checking public transport details. However, HERE Transit is available only for selected cities.

Using this feature you can save lots of data charges. This application will be handy and able to explore routes without any guide. I have benefited lot using this app, especially when you go for a picnic or when you visit new location.

Nokia MixRadio

This is a wonderful app to listen music. It is a music store as well as online music streaming application. Nokia provides 3 months of unlimited music downloads from the store. Thereafter, song download is barred but online streaming is available free for lifetime. Charges are applicable for song download after 3 months. Online streaming in Nokia is named as Mixes. You can select any Mixes like top 20 EDM/Dance, Hindi, pop etc. It will automatically play songs like radio depending on the genre or category selected.

Messaging and People

It is default texting application. The innovative part is that Facebook chat can be done in messaging. You no need an additional Facebook messenger application. However, you need data connection to do this. It allows you to change the status like available, invisible, busy etc. It also allows you to turn off the chat if it is not necessary.

Again, people is another application used to look-up Facebook contacts. Facebook status and news can also seen using this app. The best feature is the photos and the posts of friends can be seen just by clicking on the contact.

The best part of both the application is that it uses Windows interface. That gives you different experience. Windows interface is not so colorful but its simple and awesome. It don't show notification like Facebook that shows in the top.


I don't know how many of them know this feature available in Windows Phone. In Windows Phone, email accounts can be added to receive email without using browser or third party apps. After adding a account, say Gmail, it will create a new tile from which email can be accessed. Microsoft Exchange account can also be configured in the phone, people working in company can make use of this feature. To use this feature, user must add their account which is available in Settings -> email + accounts.

Nokia Camera apps

Nokia releases many camera apps to tweak the snaps taken from the phone. Nokia calls these camera apps as lenses. Just launch the camera app and use any lens (applications) of your choice to take beautiful snaps. For example, using Nokia Cinemagraph, flash photo (GIF) can be taken. Many such apps are available in Nokia. Some of them are Nokia Refocus used to focus on specific object and glare other, Nokia Glam used to take self portrait photos.

There are lot of other features in Windows Phone from Nokia. I am specifically mentioning Nokia because most of the above mentioned apps were from Nokia not from Windows. You can't find some of the above apps in other Windows Phone devices like HTC, Samsung etc.
