    This phone has endured multiple drops with no damage to screen but to the exterior. Its Apps are not as a huge selection as Apple but it would be nice to have some. Battery life is low when constantly online and will die within under 10 hours. Some Minor bugs and glitches will be present.

    This phone changed my view on having just any ole cell device. This one tops the cake for me. If bored with the same ole iOS or even Android, try this phone. Nice size, camera is Excellent, and features are on POINT! UI is eye catching yet functional, brings ease to the productive individual.

    This solid and powerful phone is fast, has great call quality, it's durable and pleasant to use. Super camera quality, good display (clear black is nice), aluminum buttons feels good, high sensitivity touch screen is useful. Great hardware performance, Windows Phone is a fundamental part in this formula for success. I'm a programmer, technology lover. I easily find details that can annoy me in any device. I'm loving this phone so much.

    This is my 3rd 935, I love the many features, do not feel as if I'm compromising at all. Cortana helps me I my daily routine. Two drawbacks for me, I really want the 2 way camera and you must have some good protection, as the glass much too fragile , I would insist on a Good screen protector

    I've had my Lumnia 925 more than a year. Prior to the Lumina I had Android phones from 2 other famous companies, but my Android phones crashed daily and fell apart. I couldn't afford an iPhone so I tried the Lumina 925 and have been happy ever since. It looks like new. No crashes. Incredibly long battery life. Works with T-Mobile's LTE network as a mobile hotspot. I've gotten 90+mbs data rates connecting laptops and desktops (up to 4 at a time). My most used app is Here Transit (built-in). I use Here Transit constantly to choose the best public transit options. Here Transit keeps up with constantly changing local bus and rail schedules and has great maps showing each stop. I installed my favorite apps (esp YouTube). Cortana is has a good sense of humor and works better than Siri when put to the test side-by-side. The camera takes amazing pics which automatically appear in OneDrive. The wireless charging (it was optional) has saved wear and tear on my USB port. I strongly recommend this phone to anyone who asks.

    I haven't even had this phone for a year and it's already not working. The power button does not work, neither does the side volume buttons or the camera button. My phone freezes a lot and I obviously cannot do anything about it if the power buttons do not work. Also, not to mention the apps for this phone is the worst selection ever. I would not recommend this phone to anybody.

    Had iPhone, android, now this. They all have their strengths, and weaknesses, and styles. I like this. Doesn't get slower with time. If anything, it's better than when I got it.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I love the window phone, but for some reason my Nokia 925 is not the greatest. Two months after I receive my phone, I started having problems. It would freeze, change screen color or Cortana wouldn't stop talking. It would be nice to have more app, especially the one's that would allow me to connect to my cable provider and many of the one that are announce on TV, but I can handle doing without but the other issue with the phone is not acceptable to me.

    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.
