Nokia's three musketeers: Lumia 925 vs 928 vs 920 specs comparison
0. phoneArena 14 May 2013, 05:35 posted on
Nokia's newly-announced Lumia 925 seems to have been codenamed Catwalk for the right reason during the development (and the rumor) phase. At 8.5mm it is thinner than even the Lumia 720, despite housing a full PureView Phase 2 camera with multi-axis optical image stabilization inside...

We know what catwalk destined to be "thinner and lighter"! Dont expect too much. If this will come to the Philippines i will buy it over the 920.
What you are waiting is the Nokia EOS

"What you are waiting is the Nokia EOS"
Which notwithstanding tipsters who said the EOS would be released this time around, wasn't. In the U.S., the EOS will be released in late 2013, as an AT&T exclusive.

Pretty much. TBH though, I wish they would have stuck with LCD for the display. I simply find them to give far better color accuracy than there AMOLED counter parts.

You know it is good to have different choices.

It is like the contrary of samsung:
Samsung: Same design, different specs
Nokia: Differnet design, Same specs

Does anybody know if 925 will come to the Philippines?
23. kirholstov (Posts: 129; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
I think so, but definitely later than in the USA or UK. It took 6 months to 920 was available in my country

i agree with jason2k13. Apart from a lack of wireless charging and the pureview label, whats the difference?

So this is Nokias new inceptions, it's called "catwalk" so this is innovation, making a device slimmer is know, a revolution, evolution, "aka": being, making a device slimmer.
Lmfao.... slim phones does exzist, don't they: like ip5, s4, oppo5
21. dexter_jdr (Posts: 890; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)

Or, he's just what his name implies. A troll. Ignore him and eventually he'll go away.

Not that I have a choice since Verizon owns my soul, but I'd still pick the 928. The design is more cohesive than the 925, it has the snazzy flash, it's narrower and therefore easier to hold. It's not the pretty one, but it is the workhorse.
9. JojoGo101 (Posts: 211; Member since: 17 Dec 2012)
Well I must say Nokia have stopped making those "Bricks" you called them before.
10. valapsp (Posts: 422; Member since: 12 Aug 2011)
Is it right? The battery life of the 925 is worse than the 928?
12. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3510; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Maybe you should have released this in place of the 920, Nokia. You now have a suitable flagship for 2012! ... In 2013. You're in the same position as Sony is with the Xperia Z.
14. SleepingOz (Posts: 2377; Member since: 22 Oct 2011)
I think it's not as bad as the XZ, since it's a WP but still cannot be compared to the high-end droids.
16. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3510; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I wasn't comparing it to the phone itself, I was comparing Nokia's move to Sony's; releasing a device with previous generation hardware as a high end device.

Why not? It runs smoother and faster than the high-end androids, and while it may not have the bleeding-edge graphics capabilities or full-HD displays, it is still comparable (and, for me, preferential) to them.
Of note, I had a chance to try a GS4 yesterday for a couple hours. It was just as clunky and frustrating as my wife's GS3, just faster and lighter. I did like that the keyboard had the number row on top, but otherwise it was as glaringly tragic as prior androids. The owner was impressed with my Lumia 900 and when I mentioned she was still within her exchange period to get a 920 she was quite intrigued.

Cool story dude, but unless your lumia(or any WP) is able to perform like this. It cannot be compared to high-end androids. Period.

lol atlest you should not ask this question heheheh and it was not me :P
34. Bilpocalypse (Posts: 301; Member since: 13 Oct 2012)
How do you figure? The L920 is the best looking of all three, has better battery life, twice the storage of the L925, isn't on T-Mobile's crap network, and is probably the most durable of all three. It's the only one with an IPS display (which is superior IMO), and it comes with wireless charging out of the box. The 925 is kind of a disappointment in my book.
13. red_fox (Posts: 37; Member since: 07 May 2013)
So basically the same phone with an Amoled screen upgrade and it's lighter... sorry upgrading to 928 and 925 is ain't worth it.
28. Altair (Posts: 278; Member since: 02 Feb 2012)
Point here is to give customers freedom od good choices. I am happy owner of yellow Nokia Lumia 920 and no need to upgrade. But there are a lot of people who likes choices. Even those who blames 920 as a brick. I thanked gods that I bought this though tank phone as I accidentally dropped it 3 times already and it got hit in my pocket too. No harm done. Friend of mine has broken iPhone 4 and 2 weeks ago Samsung GS3. Now he. Also bought 920 and is very happy with it.
15. -box- (Posts: 3537; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
I want the 925's dimensions, 928's Xenon flash, and the 920's color palette and polycarbonate body with built-in wireless charging, on T-Mobile US. Call it the 921 :P

What a dream.lol I would've loved that as well.
30. rsiders (Posts: 193; Member since: 17 Nov 2011)
I will be picking up the 925 cause I'm on T-Mobile but I'll giving Nokia the "see you at recess fist" for the lower 16gb of memory. And why was the micro USB placed placed at the top? Ah what the heck, yellow unlocked 920 it is. Wait, I can't make up my mind.lol
