    Although by no means a new device anymore, the Lumia 925 still operates as well as it did when I purchased it in September 2013. The most appealing feature of the 925 is just how user friendly it is and how simple it is to get to grips with. With that in mind it made the WP OS the obvious choice to recommend to my 62 year old Mum. The camera is also fantastic, at 8.7 MP it remains my camera of choice, largely because of features such as 'Burst mode' allowing the capture of otherwise difficult action shots. A small complaint would be the applications available to the 925, albeit this is applicable to all devices running WP and remains the fault of short-sightedness among larger companies in failing to see a growing chunk of the smartphone market. This aside, the Lumia 925 makes it easy to take my work on the go due to its capability to connect with Outlook, OneDrive and more, as well as a sound platform on which to view MS Office documents. When not working it is also great for entertainment. The video playback is fast, sound clear and free music streaming via Mix Radio remains a delight. Overall, a robust workhorse that has continuously failed to disappoint through the rigour of day to day use.

  • I have had quite a few Nokia phones, but my Lumia experience is the best. I can't fault anything except the battery life.

    For me, Lumia 925 is productivity defined. Keeps me going even when I am on the go. The battery technology just needs to be improved and you will get a 5 star plus. Will go for Lumia, anyday.

  • A powerful phone in a great looking package

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    The Lumia 925 is slim, sleek and light but has the durable build quality that Lumias are known for. The screen size is a great balance of real estate for web browsing or watching videos on the one hand, and pocketability on the other hand. The OS is easy to use, very smooth and with no noticeable slow down even after long term use. The updates add huge value - as with the addition of Cortana - and only enhance performance, rather than compromising it in any way. For me, this is a fantastic package that gives me the power I need in a great looking, durable, lightweight handset.

  • Lasts longer than android phones

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I got this phone for a number of reasons, the main one being I have always had trouble with software problems on android devices. I've not really heard of them lasting very long. I've had a couple problems with my lumia yes, but the pressing of a few buttons and the problems are gone permanently. I have found it to be very secure and customisable for ease of use. It also helped me transition from using windows 7 to windows 8 on pc, as they are very similar and have similar features. Also windows phones use a similar operating system to windows pc, which is a highly experienced company in making SAFE and SECURE systems. I've never had a problem with signal or calling people, but with both my sony ericson and samsung androids I kept having repeated problems with sending and recieving texts and calls. Overall the device runs well to start with and STAYS running well, that's rare in phones and tablets these days.

    I love my Lumia 925. In the 18 months I have owned it, I am always finding new and useful ways to get the most out of it whilst still being blown away with the screen everytime I turn it in. I have always been a windows phone fan, right from the windows mobile days, but windows phone 8.1 is a huge step forward and excites me as to what will come next. I find the build quality second to none and the camera allows me to capture awesome images everyday, in short it's the best mobile I have ever owned!

    My Phone is very great because it has a big number of features like the Smart Cam or Bing and, especially Cortana. Cortana is the best A.I. I have seen so far. Introducing it was a great move , honestly.

    The Lumia 925 was my second Windows Phone device. An upgrade from my 820 although they pretty much share the same specs except for the camera. Only downside is no SD slot but I opted for the 32gb model so no problems with storage. Screen Although not 720p or 1080p the resolution is great & a big improvement on the 820. OLED & ClearBlack technology make the screen vivid & easy to read in any light. Glance screen is a feature you take for granted but its look & go ability make it the most used feature. Camera 8.7MP with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) snaps great pictures even in low light. All photos/videos are uploaded to OneDrive so you always have then backed-up. More on that later! Cortana I use her (the virtual digital assistant) all the time for setting reminders & alarms, getting directions & calling people. Email All syncs via Outlook but all email providers catered for, even my Army email which is a nightmare to use on the web-based version. Contacts Again all synched across all platforms. If you install/allow, your contacts are updated with information from other sources such as other email accounts, Twitter, Facebook etc. Sat Nav/Maps The HERE suite provide great apps to get you from A-to-B again across platform. Totally free & work really well. I don't own a sat nav as these do the job perfectly. Battery The Lumia 925 easily gets through the day & in reality, 2 days. With some settings disabled you are looking at 3 days. Amazing stuff for a modern smart phone. Internet Syncs favourites & open tabs with Windows 8.1, a feature that only matters when you really need it! Has the ability to download files from the internet & save them locally. Remembers passwords from Windows 8.1 so you don't have to remember them! OneDrive/cloud storage This is the game changer for me, especially if you have a Windows 8.1 computer or tablet. The ability to access documents & files from anywhere is amazing! This allows me work/view anything from my phone & vice-versa. Total productivity! Overall I highly recommend this device. It's very slim & stylish looking especially with the darker metal. People talk about a lack of apps but pretty much everything you need is in the store. Windows Phone is easy to use & intuitive. Even my Mum in her 60s is rocking a Windows Phone & regardless of the device you choose, the experience is the same across all phones. Highly recommended!

  • This product is a good mobile phone but with attention to the aerial sensitivity and battery life it would be the best mobile phone.

    This phone is used mainly for work purposes. The windows and camera features meet the demand very well. In many instances making a suitable subsistitute for all mobile office duties. The aerial sensitivity and battery life are the only items that let this phone down.

    The hardware feels genuinely premium in the hand, it's responsive to input and has a cracking screen in any light; the O/S keeps getting better with each update, glance screen and now cortana are great additions to the system. I use it heavily for business email and calendar and find it perfectly suitable for that. Battery life is good for such a device.
