Nokia Lumia 925 review

 

Is this really Nokia's 'masterpiece'?

Premium build ; Superb camera ; Strong suite of native apps

Dated specs ; Screen could be sharper ; Only 16GB of storage

Nokia has done what we asked: released a Windows Phone handset in metal. Except it's not all metal. And it's very similar to the Nokia Lumia 920. And it's in the high-end price bracket... but does a stunning camera warrant the extra cost?

Nokia Lumia 925 camera review - Pocket-lint

 

A yo-yo ride of highs and lows, the Lumia 925 is a decent smartphone with a built-in camera system as good as - if not sometimes better than - any current

Optical image stabilisation system opens up possibility for longer hand-held exposures, no SD/mSD card slot, f/2.0 aperture lens, great for sharing direct from camera, screen resolution far beyond dedicated compact cameras, low ISO settings produces...

No HDR, use of low ISO settings even when inappropriate, digital zoom is limiting, close-up focus not shown full-time in preview, limitation to on-board storage, inconsistent white balance at higher ISO settings, mid-high ISO settings aren't...

The Nokia Lumia 925 may have a camera system that's peppered with brilliance, but it falls into many of the same pitfalls that its smartphone competitors suffer. The Nokia optical image stabilisation system offers both pros and the cons: it opens up...

Nokia Lumia 925 review

 

The Nokia Lumia 925 is the brand's latest flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone

Great camera ; Stunning design ; Thinnest Lumia yet

Windows Phone 8 still clunky ; Wide screen affects usability ; No built-in wireless charging

Nokia Lumia 925 review - Pocket-lint

 

The Nokia Lumia 925 is the best Windows Phone 8 handset you can buy, combining great design with plenty of additional enhancements from Nokia. There are

Slimmer, lighter, design; plenty of added extras, good camera performance

Aside from the design, it doesn't feel hugely different from the 920; in wider terms, Windows Phone still lags behind in the apps offering

Nokia's strengths shine through the Nokia Lumia 925. The new focus on design brings Nokia into the flagship fight, with a handset that's slim, strong and great to hold. It's competitive on the spec sheet and lands with more software enhancements than...

One of the best high-end Windows Phone handsets, but we're not convinced by the camera

Nokia Lumia 925 review

 

Nokia isn't afraid to tinker with its Windows Phone 8 flagship – metal is in, wireless charging is out and Smart Cam is the headline feature. But is it any good?

This slimmed down Lumia has one of the smartest cameras around and access to the now comprehensive Windows Phone 8 store

The Lumia 920 gets a slimmer body and a metal frame.

Solid, attractive build, Good display, Versatile camera, Excellent call quality

PenTile screen, Non-expandable memory, Limited Windows Phone 8 apps selection

Nokia Lumia 925 hands-on review

 

Troubled mobile-phone maker Nokia today announced a new flagship Windows smartphone. It's called the Nokia Lumia 925. Or No-kia Looomia Nine-Twen'yfive, as the American host at the London press event preferred to describe it. Here's our Nokia Lumia 925...

We'll bring you the verdict on Nokia's new flagship smartphone just as soon as we've tried one properly.

Nokia Lumia 925

 

Premium build, a lovely camera and increasingly strong app content: this is the best Windows Phone yet

Lovely, premium build ; Excellent camera ; Growing number of apps ; Vibrant screen with deep blacks

Needs a case to use wireless charging tech ; Video and audio performance not as strong as best ; Needs more apps
