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

If you're the type that likes a "stealth" look, the all-black Nokia Lumia 925 ($99.99) could be your next phone. The new AT&T model looks cooler than the T-Mobile version thanks to its matte black finish. Windows Phone fans will like the Lumia 925, and...

Nokia Lumia 925 (AT&T)

 

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

Slim sleek design with aluminum frame; Gorgeous AMOLED display; Excellent camera with complementary apps; Integrated wireless charging; Fast AT&T LTE speeds; Long battery life

No expandable memory; Windows Phone still lacks key apps and features

As much as we like the Lumia 1020's 41-megapixel camera, the Lumia 925 for AT&T sports a slimmer design and many of the same great camera features for $100 less. We also love the 925's AMOLED display, and are fans of the phone's solid performance and...

Nokia Lumia 925 review

 

Nokia has had a rough go of it this year. Though it's making the absolute best Windows Phone hardware on the market, a lukewarm reception to Microsoft's operating system has kept sales cool. Without the clout (like Samsung or Apple) to release a single...

Vivid AMOLED screen ; Great exclusive apps ; Beautiful, comfortable aluminum finish ; Solid rear camera

Windows Phone lacks certain apps ; Windows Phone still has some quirks ; No MicroSD card support ; Battery is not removable

The metal band around the edge is a nice aesthetic touch, we're just not sure the material gains the Lumia the premium air Nokia is going for.

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

The Lumia 925 is a slimmer and lighter handset than its 920 predecessor, with a neater and more ergonomic design. It lacks wireless charging but supports LTE and NFC, and has an excellent 4.5in. AMOLED screen. However, with the Lumia 1020 already...

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

All Windows Phones aren't alike. It's become clear recently that Nokia is pulling ahead of other Windows Phone makers with its array of exclusive imaging, media, and navigation software. While many of these apps will come to all Windows Phones...

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

The Nokia Lumia 925 is a compelling option for T-Mobile shoppers who have been waiting to get their hands on a flagship Windows Phone. For $49 down, consumers get a stylish and sleek device with a beautiful AMOLED display, 4G LTE and Nokia's PureView...

Nokia Lumia 925

 

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.
