Brief Review Lumia 925
Lumia 925 is the latest Windows based handset from Nokia. With specs almost identical to the Lumia 920, this feels like a slight upgrade from the previous Lumia. The biggest issue I personally had with the 920 was its size/weight and no option of expandable memory. While the 925 still doesn’t offer an expandable memory, at least the size and the finish of the Lumia has improved. Despite being part metal it still feels lighter than the Lumia 920. Worth mentioning is the build quality which is pretty good.
With a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM the Nokia Lumia 925 is behind the current devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC one, but then again Windows mobile doesn’t need this much power to begin with. Detailed specifications can be found here.
The Lumia has a 4.5 inch, 768 x 1280 AMOLED screen with a 333 ppi which is pretty decent. Bundled with PureMotion HD + ClearBlack technology used by Nokia 925 makes this screen very impressive when viewing in direct light. Further screen improvements include Gorilla Glass 2 for extra protection.
My main reason for getting this phone is its camera. I was amazed at the Lumia 920’s camera and the 925 feels near perfect. It has the PureView branding which was introduced with the Nokia 808 pureview and the results show exactly this.
The Nokia Lumia 925 has an 8.7-megapixel main sensor however when I compared the photos of the Samsung Galaxy S4’s 13 MP capera and Lumia 925, I found the results better of the latter. Low light……there is simply no competition either. Lumia 925 beats not only the SGS4 and Iphone 5 but the HTC One as well. This is partially also due to the The Lumia 925’s sensor is slightly larger than its competitors. Its sensor pixels are 1.4microns in size, smaller the 2-micron pixels of the HTC One. Like a ‘real’ camera, the physical shutter button is a two-step process that focuses when pressed lightly, and snaps when pressed the whole way. The camera is truly amazing.
Disappointment and more dissapointment. Built in 16 GB with no expandible option. This is simply not enough. Yes cloud storage is the future but not everyone has 3G not to mention needing files for offline use.
I am happy with the device however the price is fairly hight keeping in view the specs. The Lumia 925 is an all rounder handset which not only gives a premium feel but does the part as well. If you’re thinking about upgrading from a Lumia 920 I wouldn’t suggest it because there isn’t a lot to upgrade to however from older models it is recommended.
