The Nokia Lumia 925 is a subtle but meaningful update of what was - literally until a few days ago - the company`s top smartphone offering. While designers and engineers were busy fixing the Lumia 920, the guys next door produced a louder bang with the Lumia 1020. Still, the Lumia 920 was in many ways the flagship that really showed the company with its best foot forward. And the Lumia 925 is a very welcome facelift, sporting a lighter, thinner a...
Verdict: It`s been eight months since the release of the Lumia 920. At that time, the great design and updated WP8 build, complete with Nokia customizations and exclusive apps, resulted in one of the best smartphones representing the platform. Much has change...
Overall: One of the best windows phone products at the moment before GDR3 Devices hit the market. [[Update:GDR3 devices launched, check out the 1520 and 1350]]. On time Delivery so no complaints there.
What You'll Love:
*HD AMOLED Screen. Amazing Visibility even when brightness is set to low and it looks gorgeous cause of the absolute Blacks. (Picked it up over the 920 due to this)
*Great PPI(Youre not going to notice the minute difference between HD and Full HD on a screen of only 4.5 Inches.
*Build quality, Premium feel, Thinness and Light weight.
*External Speaker and sound quality ( Yeah the speaker is at the back but its not an issue at all)
*Camera (Now comes with the revamped "Nokia Camera" app which merges Pro Cam and Smart Cam.
*Comes with "Nokia Music" app, Free downloads for 1 year and unlimited "Mix Radio" streaming for the lifetime of the handset.
*Here Navigation suite for truly offline voice navigation for walk and driving (Trust me you don't wanna be stuck with Google maps or Apple maps when you are lost and don't have a data plan or have no signal)
*Nokia Glance Screen and Glance Backgrounds [[Update: Glance Notifications]]
*SkyDrive. Set it up properly on your computer and you'll have a seamless experience.
*Free Office Apps including Word, Excel and One Note.
*Phone will not lag and restart and die on you.
Some Myths Clarified:
*Instagram, Vine, [[Update: Official apps now available though I would suggest installing 6tag client over the official app]] Facebook messenger (built into the messaging hub) and YouTube are all available. They currently have amazing Third Party apps (6tag, 6sec, MetroTube) with Official versions coming with the launch of GDR3 Devices.
*Windows Phones don't lag or have viruses. Just cause they have lower specs than Android does not make it slower.
*Not all the apps are paid, even if the one you want is paid it probably has a trial version which is the full version but with adverts. There are also a lot of free apps.
*Windows Phone 8 has Bluetooth and can send songs. [[Update: Now updated to Bluetooth 4.0 LE]]
*There are many browsers available apart from I.E (Maxthon, UC Browser, Surf Cube, Surfy, Nokia Xpress Browser to name a few)
*WP8 supports USB drag and drop. You don't need a companion app such as Zune or iTunes.
*Lock Screen Rotation Lock Available with the GDR3 Update [[Available Now]]
*Has a Radio
*Gmail is available.
What You Won't Like:
*WP8 Still doesn't have as many games as iOS and Android. However loads have been announced including Temple Run 2, Asphalt 8: Airborne etc. [[update: Asphalt 8 now available]] [[Update 2: TR2,Subway surfers now launched]]
*Only 16 GB non-expandable memory ( I don't have an issue with 5GB still remaining but some people might) [[Update: Only 1GB left]]
*Creating playlists is not exactly intuitive but the music app will definitely be updated.
[[Update:Create Playlists by adding songs to "now playing" listby going to songs and clicing the left of the screen to get the tick boxes and select create (make sure no song is already playing)]]
*No Notification center which is easily rectified by tile notifications. This way you don't get annoyed by stupid app notifications asking you to open the game and play or that there is a discount available on coin purchases. [[Update: Notification Center a.k.a Action center available with WP 8.1 Update
What You Get:
*A premium designed phone with amazing Hardware and Design (People are going to drool at this beauty)
*A Fluid experience Out of the box with WP8. (Unlike Android which lags after a few weeks ( I own 2 android devices A Galaxy note 10.1 and an Xperia S) You don't need Quad-cores or Octa-Cores for the OS to run smooth even after a year of usage it will still be smooth.
*Great navigation, Music and Social experience.
*Good Battery life.
*Up-gradable to Windows Phone 8.1 (Blue)
*Nokia's own software optimization and apps.
What You WON'T Get:
[[Update: Available now]] *A notification center (Not right now at least until WP 8.1)
*Notification Light (Not needed as we will get notifications on the glance screen)
*Viruses (That's a good thing, WP8 and Windows Desktop are not the same)
*No SD card Slot.(Availableon other models)
*No USB OTG or HDMI. There is DLNA to share with a DLNA TV (Nokia app: Play To)
[[Update: Following Restriction removed]] [[Update: this seems to be an Issue with quite a number of people: You cant send songs from your music list on Whatsapp. You can receive them but they will be saved in the Whatsapp app rather than the music app. But you CAN send and receive Photos, Videos and Recordings and they will be saved on the phone memory. This limitation is only with Music files.
