Nokia Lumia 925 is the thinnest Windows Phone 8 smartphone to date (size comparison)
0. phoneArena 14 May 2013, 06:28 posted on
After all the leaks and speculations, the Lumia 925 is now official, meaning that we finally have a high-end Windows Phone 8 smartphone from Nokia that doesn't weigh 16 tons. Okay, we know that we're exaggerating quite a bit, but no matter how we look at it, the former Nokia flagship device, namely the Lumia 920, is unusually bulky for its class. So, how much thinner and lighter is the new Nokia Lumia 925 when compared to the 920? Well, a lot, as it becomes evident when we put the two next to each other...

If they added the Samsung ATIV S to compare, why not add the HTC Windows Phone 8X as well?
By the way, nobody can say Nokia makes brick phones any more, cause the thin Lumia 925 is here!
And also, RIP "Windows Phone has no apps and games" trolls.

WP8X isn't that thin, just is contoured to feel thinner. Check out the size comparison tool.

The HTC WP8X is : 132.35 x 66.2 x 10.12 mm.

The 8X has a smaller screen maybe? It's comparable to the 928 but a bit thinner and narrower. It's rather tall for a 4.3" phone. Side by side it felt significantly more comfortable to hold than the 920, but not nearly as sturdy.

If someone says that is a brick, it must be the most sexiest brick i have ever seen, really gorgeous design on the 925. Well done Nokia!

Nokia have always made damn sexy hardware, the only time i was not a fan was with their recent lumia offerings from the 900/800 and latest 600 series Lumias.

Aptly named "catwalk", skinny like supermodels. Not always a good thing.
I wonder how durable this thinner model will be

This "catwalk" will be stronger than the Galaxy S4. :P

Of course. Take his word and buy the phone no need to wait for drop tests or reviewers. =.=
FYI, The phone has aluminium on sides only, on the back is polycarbonate which is the same material as GS4. Stop advising people of what you expect to see rather than what actually is !

Yes, the Lumia 925 has aluminium on sides only, and polycarbonate on the back.
I didn't advise him, I'm just telling the truth, Nokia makes strong indestructible phones, and most Nokia phones are 10x stronger than Samsung Galaxies.
14. tech2 (Posts: 2835; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
So according to you what happens in past will continue to happen in future ? and for some reason it becomes 'truth' (not even your opinion or logic but 'TRUTH', seriously ?!)
Also, previous models were strong because they were very heavy as sh*t and had thick coating of polycarbonate. This one isn't !
15. xperiaDROID (banned) (Posts: 5629; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Okay whatever, you have your own opinion, I have my own opinion.
To see who's stronger and more durable, just wait for the drop test.
16. tech2 (Posts: 2835; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
Exactly my point ! Why not wait for the drop test rather than making a fanboy comment and defaming Samsung/GS4 for no reason on all articles ?!?!
A comparison to ATIV S is understandable but simply comparing it to GS4 which is not included anywhere in article nor anyone's comment is simply being fanboy !
P.S. Unlike you I don't state my 'opinion' as 'truth' !

Samsung does make powerful hardware, but their products do not excel when it comes to innovative design or build quality...
23. tech2 (Posts: 2835; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
Innovative design I agree with you but not on build quality. Almost in all drop tests (which are not always scientific) Samsung stood neck n neck with HTC One.
Also, iFixit gave GS4 a 8/10 as against HTC One who got 1/10 making it impossible to repair.
One more thing, although this hasn't got much attention but Samsung managed to fit a bigger screen & bigger/removable battery in a chassis smaller/lighter than HTC One which is a great feat in itself.
24. MistB (Posts: 581; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)
Forget the HTC One or anything related to HTC, i'm tired of HTC as a whole and these tech sites pandering to that pathetic brand and it's irrelevant opinionated fanboys. Nokia as i see it are more exciting these days despite the minimalist updates as with Samsung. At least the latter 2 are innovating, don't see HTC doing anything which they truly own.
25. tech2 (Posts: 2835; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
I know right !?
These 'tech reviewers' fail to give importance to repair-ability and HTC's poor software updates and battery life. Because unlike us they use phone for only 6 months so to them all these longitivity issues doesn't matter they are all only worried about the build quality !
I like Nokia how they are always doing something different unlike competition who just gives minor spec upgrades.

You two should get a room, by far the most biased posts i have seen in a long time, you guys should open your mind a bit. It's not like Nokia is going to reward you two for loving them that much.

I don't like HTC much either, but come on, that in and of itself was fanboyish
29. DFranch (Posts: 144; Member since: 20 Apr 2012)
xperiaDROID isn't just stating an opinion. There is a strong history on NOKIA's part of making solid, durable phones. It's called deductive reasoning where past tendancies are used to predict future results. Of course, there is always a possibility the 925 will be an exception.

I don't know if that was trolling or a complement
7. papss (unregistered)
Agreed.. I'd be curious to know how tough the phone is. I also wonder when the EOS will be announced

Wow finally Nokia Wp8 devices are available in slim series.
Welcome to planet earth, out from the cave!

TROLL is a paid shill, working for the competition, and his or her sole purpose is to write hateful and dishonest comments about Nokia and Microsoft products and services.
NOTE: All of their comments should be deleted due to past violations, and their account should be suspended indefinitely. PHONE ARENA, please stop allowing paid employees of other companies looking to interfere with the review and feedback process!

I reckon thinness is so overrated, I don't think most people don't care that much if its a couple mm thicker.

This is relevant if windows is a hot selling item.
17. sergiobr (Posts: 491; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
Nothing new ! Thicker + Aluminium + low light ,,, I prefer S4 with a lot of improves in camera 13PX and .... ANDROID !!!!
21. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Nokia next's flagship will debut in the summer, or fall - but the 920,925,928 still gives the S4 a good run for it's money.
28. sergiobr (Posts: 491; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
My S3 with xda-developers stock rom capture 30fps 190 bitrate sound ang gorgeous video recording ! With CameraPro the photos in low light are awesome !!! I need a OS fantastic and a soberb camera to change my old S3 !

I dont get it, why drop test? before buying smartphones we have to at least see if it survived the 1st, then comes the 2nd fall? or a matter of height this time? So like were having the same accidents here then we convince the other that I've done that, this is what happens. Ridiculous!!!! Why not buy a new one when you broke it. Did the manufacturers provide warranties to such clumsiness? Ive been using my Nokia 808 going 3 months now, yes I'm extremely cautious when carrying my phone that with a velvet wrist strap. Receiving the casual bumps, noted scratches everywhere, so envious about other phones especially Iphone for stylish to customized covers, which my zombie phone comes with bare premium skin. Like i've looked everywhere.... nothing... Lumia has limited colors, the least to change any ones mood..
