T-Mobile's Nokia Lumia 925 just $199.95 at HSN
It's been a while since the Nokia Lumia 925 has come up in general conversation, so let's refresh your memory, shall we? Released last June, the phone offers a 4.5 inch AMOLED display with resolution of 768 x 1280, which works out to a pixel density of 334. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU, and an Adreno 225 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside and 16GB of native storage is on board. An 8.7MP rear-facing camera adorns the back with OIS used for both the camera and video capture, and the 1.2MP front-facing shooter will take your selfies. Keeping the phone powered up is a 2000mAh cell.
It is not known how long this deal is good for, so if you're looking for an outstanding camera on a value-priced handset, this is it. The Lumia 925 was one of the last Windows Phone 8 models made before the GDR3 update allowed manufacturers of Windows Phone handsets to catch up to high-end Android phones, which Nokia did with the Nokia Lumia 1520 and Nokia Lumia Icon.

That is one of the best designed smartphones ever!.... With WP8 it's awesome.. WP8.1 will make it amazing!

.It's the best looking Windows phone imo (though very similar to the 1520).
And yeah, 8.1 is gonna make it much much better. Are you sure 8.1 is gonna come to the 925 anyway? I hope it will.

that 1520 nokia shouldve been an android phone and the l925, you would see nokia and samsung and apple on the saME LEAGUE
11. hurrycanger (Posts: 1099; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)
It depends. There are too many competitors in the Android world, and Samsung has gotten its top place in the market now. Nokia will have to do a lot to get there (features, extra many-people-don't-use-often features aka "gimmcks", and a lot marketing).
But yeah, that would be nice to see if it ever happens. It gotta be full Android though. According to what I've seen and read about the forked Android on the Nokia X family, I don't want it. Not on a high end smartphone.
8. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
The 925 is definitely getting WP8.1. Mark my word!
17. hurrycanger (Posts: 1099; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)
Just checked Microsoft's site. Yep, it seems like you're right.
18. hurrycanger (Posts: 1099; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)
nvm ^ comment, I read it wrong on Microsoft's site. -_-

i agree with oppo, sonyz, and LG4 looks with oblong candbar sexy looking streamlined looks to die for
do you remember the NOKIA N74 CONCEPT....?
i believe this sharp edged design should be patent befor apple tries to patent this or they prefer ugly curve looking designs.....?
but a huge let down by the platform which no one likes
i would love to own a Nokia device since after my ARTE8800 SAPPHIRE from 2009 and using htc sony samsung lg and iphone

even if its given for free it would still not sell
5. hurrycanger (Posts: 1099; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)
Because "given" isn't counted as "sale", right? :)
Anyway, I'm not afan of WP8 (8.0) but I would be more than happy to get this thing for free, man.

Just another pathetic troll.. Ignore it.
12. Arte-8800 (Posts: 4281; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
A troll....? look at the pie charts which shows LUMIA5 series are selling like cakes and 6series along with 8 series falling 3rd place, the 9series only sold 9% and 10series a mere 4%...
im stating real facts not what i assume and what anylsts thinks
i own and my username refers to nokia 8series, and you call me a troll, really what a delusion. and i like, love nokia
14. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
No, you've already proven yourself to be a pathetic troll.. No turning back now. The damage is done...... Do I need to start posting links of you trolling?
16. Arte-8800 (Posts: 4281; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
new data from adduplex states real facts which i mentioned and what you assume
13. Jommick (Posts: 198; Member since: 10 Sep 2013)
Work for AT&T - confirmed. It's been at a solid 99c for about 2-4 months now with minimal sales - mostly the elderly or Microsoft employees who purchase it.
I personally like it, but there's still a widespread belief among the general buying public that windows phone is not yet on par with android or iOS.
15. Arte-8800 (Posts: 4281; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
tell that to rodney, hes still and will be indenial
21. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
No.. What you don't understand is that I don't really care about those numbers.. My 1520 is a terrific experience.. That's all that matters... You worry about numbers, and I'll worry about devices that provide a trouble free experience without me having to work for it...
23. Arte-8800 (Posts: 4281; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
so my post on saying even giving it for free wont sell is that i said was wrong and im a troll, speaking of truth is know as trolling, when even giving it away for 99cent didnt help nokia sell its highend phone but selling lowend did...
where did i say anything about that wp runs great on lowend phones aswell the same on 1520, cause wp is a smooth os unlike android on 512ram laggs untill kitkat
i did not insult what you like or what u use what u find great is what ur happy with, thats cool by me
25. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
Maybe it's how you word things.... Try to word things so that you don't sound like you're being unnecessarily negative.. There's nothing wrong with constructive criticism, but you com of as nitpicking, negative, and bashing.. I mean, look at what you said about iPhones, and iOS users... What are we supposed to think?
Comment #2.. And, all the rest..
26. Arte-8800 (Posts: 4281; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
but that is true though, journalist and every tech websites say that even 9to5 apple mags themself state that hippys and genral public and norm people follow the cults,
there is a big diffrent in users fanboys and loyal users
i state the merit cause im normal with no hate towards others of what they prefer, yes i dont and didnt like using wp8 so i say what the negatives are to compare to android
nothin no one is perfect except GOD and JESUS

Great hardware and great software, at the core WP is a better OS than Android at the core, Much of Android popularity stems from it being a free OS. Android,Samsung, HTC, and others have been on the Flat UI trend lately, guess they love WP. Que the haters.
22. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3540; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
I can agree with that... WP is just a higher quality experience.. It definitely doesn't offer as much as Android, but what it does it does well.. We can't help it if the majority of people aren't long term thinkers..

It's mainly about the stability of the OS and the efficiency that convinced me to switch from lagdroid to windows, the Nokia hardware is the cherry on the already existing cherry on top of a Sunday with fudge and whipped cream

what is the color guys? why doesnt hsn mention anything?
27. hurrycanger (Posts: 1099; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)
There is no such thing as a black or gray T-mobile Lumia 925. White is the only option I've ever seen.
Same thing applied to T-mobile Lumia 521. While its base version, the Lumia 520, has several color options, the Lumia 521 made for T-mobile is available only in white.
28. valapsp (Posts: 474; Member since: 12 Aug 2011)
thanx. i actually ordered one the day before hsn's offer. I was thinking about cancelling that order (from Newegg $60 more) and reorder from HSN but after reading a review which said they cancelled his order for no reason I changed my mind,
32. Jason78 (Posts: 65; Member since: 10 Apr 2013)
Does the T-Mobile Lumia 925 have a MicroSD slot? Everything I read online says that is does not but HSN's spec page says that the phone has microSD memory expansion.
34. Jason78 (Posts: 65; Member since: 10 Apr 2013)
Thanks. I thought the HSN spec was probable wrong. I guess that would be a very good reason to return to phone if I didn't like it.
I'm hesitant to by a phone with only 16 GB of memory and no microSD card. Just my Here maps are 5 GB

Boy these arguments about which smart phone are the best are amusing to me! lets face facts the Apple iphone came out in 2007 and the first android smart phone an HTC model came out in 2008. The Windows 8 smart phone came out in 2012 replacing it's look alike Windows 7 series smart phones. It stands to reason that Iphones and Android smart phones have more features and more APPS! HOWEVER! despite this Windows smart phones have good features and are getting new one when they are upgraded to Windows phone 8.1 in a few months. Windows 8 smart users are happy about this and know that in about a year and a half their smart phones will have most of the FEATURES Apple iphone and android smart phone owners boast that they have. Microsoft is good at writing software and will close the gaps. Microsoft will make their OWN smart phones after they finalize the deal with Nokia.
A year from now all the smart phones- Apple Iphones , Android Smart phone and Windows smart phones and even blackberry smart phones will have good features giving the Public a lot of good choices to buy. unfortunately I GUESS THE TROLLLS WILL STILL BE AROUND

man this is such an irresistible deal... I must resist.... gosh!

Same here. Lol. Let's see whose mind is stronger.
