Excerpt: The build quality is really good it looks very classy, the UI is buttery smooth, Camera is THE BEST in its class (8 Megapixel Competitors) it outshines every other phone in low light photography, really nice web surfing, disappointing call quality, loudspeaker, reception compared to XT 910 (RAZR), really good web surfing, phones gets heated up really fast maybe due to Chasis, good text input, good enough battery, no HDMI (i require it)
Pros: * CAM QUALITY-- 5 STAR. * Synchronizing with mail-- 4 Star. * Lock Screen Digital Time. * Worth for OFFICE USAGE. IT alerts me for every MEETING Time to time. * simple Tile view and List view. And Many more.........
Cons: 2 Concerns to my extent: *Less Applications: I miss mainly this two apps which is available in Android .Subway surf & AXIS BANK. *Downloaded videos are not displayed in system after connecting to my Laptop.
Excerpt: Although the Lumia 925 gets rave reviews, they fail to properly address the shortcomongs of this phone. This phone has inherant problems. It gets extremely hot. Hot enough that it is uncomfortable against my face. The phone will get hot, even when 'sleeping' and the battery will drop 20% per hour. There are problems with reception as well. Pick the phone up off the table and the no service icon appears a few seconds afterward.
Pros: Fast, great upgrade for Windows phone users, full features available on this Windows device, you can tell this device what to do. This is a very durable phone as well, I dropped it on concrete, without a case, the aluminum took the hit, no problem!
Cons: It will heat up at times, and the battery is integrated but pay attention to your charging cycles and you can get past this. Also, App developers aren't too keen on allowing Windows die-hards to use their trendy lil apps.
Great hardware - ok Software - Avoid this vendor as they are not US phones

Summary: The phone itself is absoultely fantastic. It is light, great screen, great to look at! Windows 8 is a work in progres - as soon as WIndows Blue is rolled out, it'll be at par with the iphones and ANdroids Complaints: The unit box etc appeared to be used. It was not sealed The unit is from Hong Kong/Singapore/Malaysia region Not sure if factory unlocked - or unlocked after the fact.
Summary: Great Phone, but make sure you realize that this "International version" won't get 4G I'm loving the windows phone operating system. It's not as popular as IOS or Android, but it works great. I love that it syncs right up with MS Outlook and/or windows computers without having to go through some corky iTunes or Google program.
Summary: This protector definitely makes your phone less slippery. It does protect the back but does not protect the corners or front. I like the feel, but ended up buying a soft rubber protector that wraps around the edges. So if you want the screen completely exposed this is a good case. If you want corner or drop protection, not so good.
