Summary: The Nokia Lumia 925 is a smartphone with good quality but not particularly new compared to the previous model. Interesting especially the photographic industry, thanks to a range of photographic applications, the quality of the display, even if it is a Full HD, the area of connectivity and also the combination of operating system and processor that ensures a smoother experience, while it is a simple dual-core.
Pros: Corning Gorilla Glass 2, Quality front camera, Carl Zeiss optics, Quality and size display, LTE support, NFC module, Advanced Photo Functions, PureView Technology, Internal Memory
Cons: A few improvements over the previous model, Reload wireless only with accessory cover, Nokia Store is not very large, high resolution display, Memory is not expandable.
Summary: Night owl. Not even one year has passed between the release of Nokia's Lumia 920 and its successor, the Lumia 925. Supposedly, the already great camera has seen further improvements. In addition, Nokia's Windows Phone flagship has been slimmed down and equipped with an AMOLED screen. A simple facelift or an example of successful evolution?
Pros: Terrific build quality, Magnificent voice quality, Superb display with deep blacks, Ships with high-quality software, Great GPS module, LTE radio, High-sensitivity display, Stylish looks, Outstanding main camera (especially in low-light situations), Both the Lumia's build quality and its display are top-notch. The camera is outstanding, especially so in low-light situations.
Cons: Only 16 GB of system storage (unlocked variant), No SD card slot, Dated hardware, Battery non-replaceable, More system storage! A photo- and video-centric smartphone should offer more space - something which Nokia's Lumia 1020 manages to provide.
Summary: It's easy to conclude that the Lumia 925 is the best Windows Phone 8 device so far. It' s harder to say with such certainty whether it can beat the best of the rest. It has some shortcomings. It hasn't got the largest screen, it hasn't got the fastest processor, it doesn't have as many apps as the iPhone or Android, and it doesn't even have a microSD memory card slot.
Nokia’s best yet: aluminium-clad Lumia 925 reviewed
1 August 2013
Summary: From the design improvements alone, the Lumia 925 is a much better handset than the Lumia 920, which had more in common with a colourful brick than a sleek smartphone.
Pros: Excellent design, Built very well, Lovely screen, Removes most of the weight from the plastic brick that was the 920, Decent 4G speeds
Cons: Flagship for now, but close to being superseded upon release, Specs aren't an upgrade from previous Lumia 920, No microSD slot and a fixed amount of storage, Camera flash doesn't always fire at the best of times
Conclusion: The Nokia Lumia 925 is one of the best Windows Phone 8 mobiles out there, with an impressive PureView camera, bright high-res screen and tons of excellent Nokia features. Thank heavens it’s slimmed down from the bulky Lumia 920 too.
Conclusion: Nokia's strengths shine through the Nokia Lumia 925. The new focus on design brings Nokia into the flagship fight, with a handset that's slim, strong and great to hold. It's competitive on the spec sheet and lands with more software enhancements than any other Windows Phone 8 device, at the time of launch that is. But as we said at the beginning of this review, the Lumia 925 sits in a strange position.
Pros: Slimmer, lighter, design; plenty of added extras, good camera performance
Cons: Aside from the design, it doesn't feel hugely different from the 920; in wider terms, Windows Phone still lags behind in the apps offering
Summary: You’ve seen the trendy action shots Nokia’s shouting about and heard talk of a slimmed down design but is the Lumia 925 a real upgrade over last year’s excellent Lumia 920 ? With metal in its build, wireless charging out the window (kind of) and extra camera tricks it seems Nokia isn’t afraid to tinker with its Windows Phone 8 flagship.
