Nokia Lumia 925 Review

 

Nokia announced its Lumia 925 this past May as the first device in their stable of smartphones to feature a new metal-band design, which is certainly a departure from rumors circulating earlier this year saying the device would be a […]

With that said, we still enjoyed our time with the Lumia 925 as it felt quick and responsive for the most part, its screen offered some really impressive visuals and some of the included software, such as Nokia Smart Cam and HERE Maps, can easily...

Review Nokia Lumia 925 Smartphone

 

Night owl. Not even one year has passed between the release of No

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)

Only 16 GB of system storage (unlocked variant); No SD card slot; Dated hardware; Battery non-replaceable

The main competitors are the Samsung Ativ S, the HTC 8X and the Lumia 920, but also the iPhone 5 due to its impressive image-taking capabilities.

Nokia Lumia 925 (AT&T)

 

The Nokia Lumia 925 is a tricked-out Windows Phone with a nice camera, but it's decidedly midrange next to a range of powerful Android phones on AT&T.

Sleek, matte black, partially metal design. Vibrant, responsive display. Excellent camera.

Not as powerful as high-end Android phones. Some popular apps are still missing from Windows Phone Marketplace.

Camera and Conclusions The 8.7-megapixel PureView camera features Carl Zeiss optics, an f/2.0 aperture, and optical image stabilization. It takes beautiful photos outdoors, but still falls down in low-light situations despite Nokia's claims about...

Nokia Lumia 925 review

 

The Lumia 925 is a slimmer and lighter Windows Phone 8 handset than its 920 predecessor, with a neater and more ergonomic design. It lacks integrated wireless charging but supports LTE and NFC, and has an excellent 4.5in. AMOLED screen.

Slim, lightweight, ergonomic design ; High-quality 4.5in. AMOLED screen ; Includes some excellent Nokia apps

Could benefit from a higher-resolution screen ; Wireless charging now an optional extra ; Extensive software bundle eats into internal storage ; No MicroSD card slot for storage expansion ; Expensive

Nokia Lumia 925 (T-Mobile)

 

The Nokia Lumia 925 is a good-looking and well-built Windows Phone, but can't push itself to the top of the smartphone ranks.

Well-built. Lots of useful software added. Easy to use.

Most features track somewhat behind industry leaders. Windows Phone still lacks some popular apps.

Conclusions There are a couple of ways to slice the Lumia decision here. If you're attracted by Windows Phone, right now you want to go with a Nokia. That gives you the Lumia 521 and 925 on T-Mobile, the Lumia 928 on Verizon, and the amazing Lumia 1020...

Nokia Lumia 925

 

As T-Mobile's first 4G LTE device running Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 925 makes a very good first impression. Priced at $49 up front (plus 24 payments of $20), this handset boasts an elegant aluminum body, and Nokia backs up those good looks with...

Nokia Lumia 925 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 925 offers stunning looks, a great camera and impressive 4G LTE speeds for an affordable price.

Slim design with aluminum frame; Dazzling AMOLED display; Excellent camera with complementary apps; Integrated Wireless charging; Loud audio

No expandable memory; Windows Phone still lacks key apps

T-Mobile's first 4G LTE Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 925 offers sleek looks, a great camera and fast data speeds for an affordable price.

Nokia Lumia 925 review

 

Of the three phones in Nokia's US Lumia 920 lineup -- the Nokia Lumia 925, 920 , and 928 -- T-Mobile's and AT&T's 925 has the best hardware design, hands down. (And yes, the Lumia 1020's 41-megapixel camera tops them all.)

Nokia's Lumia 925 has a sleek, slim, partially aluminum build. Its camera takes great shots, especially in low light conditions, and the LTE smartphone comes in at an affordable price.

The Lumia 925 is a little wide and squat, and sharp corners diminish handheld comfort. T-Mobile's version has 16GB of storage instead of 32GB.

Nokia's lovely Lumia 925 delivers a high-end Windows Phone experience, but camera snobs with deep pockets should hold out for AT&T's Lumia 1020.

Nokia Lumia 925 review: lots of changes, but not much difference

 

More InfoNokia Lumia 925 announcedNokia Lumia 928 for Verizon hands-onNokia Lumia 920 reviewIt's been just half a year since Nokia revealed

Entertaining, addictive new Smart Camera functions ; Improved camera results ; Thin and light, well-built ; Vivid AMOLED display, option to adjust color profile

Lacks built-in contactless charging ; Disappointing app selection, still

The Lumia 925 is better than the 920 in most, but not all ways. Nokia clearly made sacrifices for a slimmer design, but we think they're worth it.
