Released June, 2013
  • Windows Phone, 8

It's worth noting also that the ability to see the screen in bright sunlight can help no end with taking photos, because it makes it a lot easier to compose a shot when you can actually see how things look on the screen.

Photos look quite good on the screen, with bright yet generally quite natural colours, but yet again we long for a higher resolution.

Reviews Word on the street for the Nokia Lumia 925

In addition, you have standard stuff like A-GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, DLNA, mobile hotspot functionality and Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n and n 5 GHz.

As the saying goes: the best camera is the camera that is with you.

It's not just the number of pixels crammed onto the sensor (8.7 million in both camera phones), but also the physical size of the lens that's important when considering any camera.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Sure, Smart Camera shoots 16:9 photos, which eats into the resolution, but Nokia's sensor can do 7MP in this mode.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)
The positioning of the camera makes it easier to hold the phone when taking a photo - with phones that have their cameras too close to the top edge you always run the risk of having your finger on the camera.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)
The so-called Lenses are like plugins for your camera and they are available directly in the native camera app.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)


And it's a minor point, but we are quite fond of the Glance Clock, despite feeling like a lock-screen-on-top-of-a-lock-screen.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)
We played a 90 minute video on the handset with Wi-Fi turned on, the screen at full brightness and emails and social networks set to automatically push to the phone.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)
But doing so would, and indeed does, bring up another issue: that "spectacular sharpness" is far from it from the mid ISO settings, and the evident processing at the higher ISO settings is far from desirable.
by PocketLint (Aug, 2013)


The other form of messaging on offer is email, and the email app looks remarkably similar to the text message one, with a black and white inbox listing all your emails, which you can then tap on to read.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)
That's enough for a boat load of photos, but with lots of apps and other files on board it could be eaten up fast.
by PocketLint (Aug, 2013)
The Windows Phone 8 main menu is still a simple list of all the applications on your phone, which absolutely isn't the most convenient way of organizing your apps, especially if you have lots of those.
by PhoneArena (Jun, 2013)


This also uses the Puremotion HD+ ClearBlack display, meaning pictures are superbly clear and crisp on the screen (providing you took them that way, that is).
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)
The phone supports MP4, H.264, H.263 and WMV video files, and once playing something you can pause it, skip to the next video or fit it to the screen, but that's all you get.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)
The Nokia Lumia 925 is not a bad little device to watch videos on, but we've definitely seen better.

Operating system

WP8 can do multitasking - well, not true multitasking, but more along the lines of iOS.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)
Windows Phone 8 is Nokia's only smartphone OS (with WP7.8 almost out the door) and the Finns have taken care to add as much value to the Lumia brand as possible.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)
It's competitive on the spec sheet and lands with more software enhancements than any other Windows Phone 8 device, at the time of launch that is.
