    I had the Lumia 900,520 and 521 prior to this device. All lumias or Microsoft's are user friendly with a consistently smooth operating U.I. My experience have been better with the lower end range because I have more options, customization and memory. What I liked about this device was the cameras. I'm truly spoiled with shells to change, light weight and, the option of a SD card. However, it dose have decent battery life and more onboard memory but, it's not for me.

  • Great Phone... If it wasn't a glitch.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Loved this phone the moment I got it. It was easy to use, very sleek and smooth. It's not so complex, which I also feel is convenient. I've dropped it multiple times by accident, and it's so durable. But after about a few months, my phone started glitching. It would shut off on its own randomly, especially when the battery life was half full or little less than that. It would freeze and vibrate at the same time. When that did happen, my phone would overheat. It got annoying to the point that I had to limit the use of my phone in a day so I wouldn't have to deal with it freezing all the time. This phone is amazing. But I'm really upset that this has happened. I don't know if I'm the only one who's had this problem.

  • This phone didn't last 4 months, it turned out to be terrible.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I bought this phone because the reviews where good, I also use all Microsoft apps so having a windows phone that sync's with everything I use daily made sense. Unfortunately the phone lasted just under 4 month's, the power button stopped working so i would have to wait for the phone to time out so it would shut off. The volume button stopped working so I would have to go into the settings to turn the volume down. The camera button stopped working so I would have to go into the camera app to use the camera, plus the camera app would freeze every time I used it. If I used the internet the phone would just default back to the home screen didn't matter what I was doing. It also developed a bad case of not playing any video's from personally shot video's to youtube playback. The lumia 925 is a nice looking phone it synced all of my Microsoft accounts, Outlook etc easily. Also the home screen or just the phone in general would freeze and not having a power button to do a hard reset made things difficult. I think you get the picture here, not a very well built phone, I would not recommend this phone to anyone.

    Good smartphone I'll really recommend it. I'm completely satisfied with my Lumia 925 but I would like to receive the Windows 10 update, I'm sure that with this new version of Windows my Lumia will be amazingly better yet

    This is my second Lumia. They are the only phones with true 100% compatibility with my Acura HandsFreeLink. I tried a few other phones with different operating systems when I broke my Lumia 920 and this was the only operating system that read my texts and allowed me to text a reply by voice. I called the manufacturers for the phones and the car but there was no solution to the competitors. The features are great, the camera is awesome and the battery life is excellent. I have been using the Lumia 925 for one year now and it is still just as good as day one. The one drawback is the limited number of apps.

  • I love the phone, but it has problems

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    The WP8 OS is a breeze to use, but too often, there are apps offered on TV or by companies that I'd like to have--but that are not available on Windows Phones. That is a definite minus. Even so, I love my Windows phone. Not surprisingly, then, I was glad to get my hands on the Nokia Lumia 925, and I have loved it since. The camera is the best I have seen, and the low light performance is second-to-none. The screen is sharp and clear, and makes watching videos very pleasurable, with colors that are both true and vibrant. The blacks are much blacker than most screens, and it really makes the colors pop. The HERE navigation is as good as, or better than, any paid nav. I've seen, a definite plus. The phone is not without its problems, however. There is a pesky problem with the earpiece, where the first time you plug in a headset, then you unplug it, the earpiece stops working. I've returned the phone for warranty replacement three times, but every time the same problem occurs. When the fourth phone did the same thing, I gave up trying to resolve the issue. I've resorted to using a Bluetooth headset to make calls, and I have to plug in an external speaker to use the navigation or watch a video. This is a minor inconvenience, but otherwise this is an all-around great phone.

  • Windows is so underrated

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Tried a 521 to get the feel for Windows and loved it but wanted a better camera and larger screen. The 925 fit the bill. Add in the 8.1 upgrade and I feel this phone is one of the best on the market. I left Apple because their phones cost so much. No idea why T Mobile isn't selling it anymore. No plans to get a new phone until T Mobile gets a higher end Windows phone in their lineup.

    I absolutely love this phone! This is my 3rd windows phone and is so fantastic. I'm very rough on my phones and drop this one several times everyday (no exaggeration) and have dropped it in water twice and it has no problem. This phone is definitely worth buying, you will have it for a very long time

    I got my Lumia 925 in late 2013 and have been using it for more than a year. I'm still extremely satisfied with it and don't see much out there that would make me want to upgrade at the moment. (maybe if a successor 1520 or 1020 on T-Mobile would convince me...). The Windows Phone OS is very easy to use and I like it a lot. The phone has a great camera, the app gap has shrunk considerably (except for newest games, which I don't play), and the phone has a gorgeous AMOLED screen. I wish this came in cool colors like other Lumii, but the white certainly looks good too. A case is necessary since its a bit slippery in the buff, but one of those clear plastic ones works fine at improving grip and allowing phone style to be seen.

  • To expensive for this phone

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This phone cost $450 and has a trade in value of $43 after 2 months which is not a good buy...phone shuts off by it self and you have to turn it on by pressing the volume button and power button to turn it on.. You will spend a lot of time on the phone to find out your phone is not worth anything and to know it a mediocre product. Do not recommend you buy this phone

    This phone has been one of the best purchases I've ever made. I've owned it over a year now and unlike my 7 Android phones prior, it's never crashed or stopped functioning. It has plenty internally to make it snappy, even with recent OS updates and some pretty intensive applications and games. The screen is beautiful and some of the pictures that I've taken with this camera compare to what I can do with my pro DSLR.

    The Lumia 925 has a luxury feel to it that is almost like jewelry, It's thin and the metallic frame makes it interesting in a non-predictable way and comfortable to hold. It's usually cool to the touch, which I personally like. Performance wise it's very quick, which is not surprising in a Windows Phone. The camera has allowed me to take some professional-looking photos, I'm amazed by the clarity. The only thing in which it falls short is in battery life, which is not abysmal but it's merely average.

    I've had the Lumia for about eight months now and just installed 8.1 last week. I upgraded from the 710. First off, I've never had a dropped call on a windows phone. The internet is amazingly fast and all of the apps work very well within the system. The camera is the best I've used whether on a phone or not. The camera apps are terrific and allow you to do things with picture that I didn't think possible. Cortana is ok but eats through data much too quickly for everyday use. They need to work on that. She has streamed video twice now without asking if I wanted to start it. Overall, I am sticking with Windows phones because the can be used without even thinking about it. They have the same natural flow that the Windows desktop and laptop computers have.
