The NOKIA Lumia 925 quickly solves one of the biggest issues we had with the Lumia 920 the bulk. At 139 grams, the slim Lumia 925 is much lighter than the 189 gram Lumia 920.
The build quality is still amazing. Now you have an aluminum shell with polycarbonate rear panel. The matte finish on the rear panel is also a welcome change (looks and feels better).
Among other changes, the most prominent one is the amoled display. The screen has deeper blacks, vibrant colours and is more efficient. Nokia has provided settings for the screen’s colour temperature and saturation on the device â€” very useful because a common complaint with amoled displays is the over-saturated colours.
Hardware includes a dual core Qualcomm processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The lack of microSD card slot is disappointing. Windows Phone has always offered fantastic performance, even on basic hardware.
On the Lumia 925 there was no visible sluggishness even with multiple apps running in the background. You also get the entire bouquet of Nokia apps such as the Here suite (Maps, Drive), Smart Cam and Nokia Music.
The PureView Camera has a sixelement lens (the 920 has a five element lens), F2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization. Both image and video results are great with sharp details, good colours and visible noise only at 100% zoom.
In a head-to-head comparison with the competition, the Lumia 925’s camera is easily matched (and bested) by both the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5. On a full charge, the Lumia 925 lasted a day with normal usage. For the same price, consider the Samsung Galaxy S4. It has a larger and better display, better hardware and a fantastic camera.
