Excerpt: Coming from an Android phone (HTC One X), I found the Lumia 925 to be a fantastic device. While it may not be as powerful as the Galaxy S4 or HTC One, the Windows Phone 8 OS runs buttery smooth, resulting in an overall enjoyable user experience (I suspect Android running on similar hardware...
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.
Summary: Just received my 925 today in the mail. I was very anxious to see how it would compare to my current android S4 and previous Iphone. Well...WP is the smoothest OS I have ever used. What a breath of fresh air! I compared the photo compared to my s4 and the camera is no hype. The pictures are much better especially in low light situation. Now to the hardware. The looks of the phone is beautiful and solidly built.
Pros: battery , smooth and great looking os , fantastic camera better than iphone and s4 , build quality
Cons: less apps than iphone but found everything i need
Excerpt: I am so happy I was able to upgrade from my old Nokia 5230 to a Nokia Lumia 925. It takes nice pictures and you can upload them to Skydrive. No more having to attach a USB dongle to retrieve your pictures. It's also great music and games. The only problem I had with the phone was that it couldn't connect to Xbox Games. However it could have been on Xbox's end. Overall I'm really pleased with this phone and would recommend it.
Excerpt: I went from an old Blackberry Torch to the Lumia 925. So yeah, it's not really comparable. My wife has an iPhone, and frankly, some of the features on the 925 just blow the iPhone away. Of course, Microsoft store, while it has all the apps I need / want, doesn't compete with the Apple Store as...
Excerpt: "The phone itself is great and its build quality is superb. Just make sure you buy it from somewhere else so that in case of defects, you are assured that you're protected. ShopClues does not protect its customers and response time is horrendous. Stay far far away from them.
