Ever since the introduction of the first Lumia phone, Nokia has been improving and refining its Windows Phone-powered line-up with each new model. Feature by feature and app by app, we've finally arrived at the Nokia Lumia 925 – an ambitious smartphone that attempts to offer a well-rounded experience to customers, for whom plastic just won't cut it...

It's an upgrade, but barely.

It wasn't meant to be a huge upgrade anyway. What they said the catwalk will be is a slimmer metal body 920. Yeah it's not fully metal body but as a upgrade it's even more than they said.

It is still called 92x. Unlike the sneaky GS4 (Which should be called GS3+) It really belongs to the same family. Just like Xperia ZL and Z.

I've watch the unboxing video, the sides and top and bottom bezels are too thick/wide or what ever to called it, and the screen type is different from lumia 920. So, Ray have a reason to rate it with that score, lumia 920 still the best in design overall, the only ahead of lumia 925 to 920 is the thickness, weight, wp8 os, and the front flat surface. .. just my opinion!

I was surprised that P.A. gave this phone a 7.8. I was expecting an 8.0. The camera and the aluminum are only one of the FEW updates to the 925. But still I don't consider a 7.8 decent. But what thing I am happy about is the fact that PA did complement 925's camera. :)

Nokia are just good at cameras, and that's all.

Phonearena just went on full retard again. The verge scored it 8.1 the galaxy s4 is 8.0. Gizmodo UK give the 925 a 4star. ohh its Ray S. I see why its only 7.8.

And I thought the iPhone was short on customization. Biased review.

@Ray S.: Why don't you have the app-list shortcut enabled? Press the letter of the name of the app and it goes right to it, that is, press "a" which brings up the alphabet, then click on the "n" to bring you right to the "n" section, like Nokia City Lens, for instance.

I wonder why Ray S., who is known Nokia hater, reviews Nokia's phones.
Nokia is known for a great and distortion -free sound quality. The same say other reviews. Yet, on pa it turned out that it's a weak spot. What the hell?

I believe that the so called reviewer was sitting in the basement while testing call quality. Or holded the phone upside down.

This is so low rating. It has to have at least rating 9...

Nokia sure know how to make gorgeous phones... To bad it's so expensive.

Whether you browse, runs multiple apps, play games on your smartphone,
in the end, it's still a 'PHONE'.
A phone with poor call quality in the year 2013 is not acceptable IMO.

This review is stupid. My sister has a gs4, and my parents a nexus 5... My phone takes better pictures than all three, gets better reception than all 3 (I get full service of 4g in my house. Parents and sister get 3/5.) and has clear call quality... Plus, the audio jack sound quality is superb, and imo its tied for 2nd sexiest design on the market, being beaten only my HTC one m7 and m8, and tied with iPhone 5s... It really is a pretty phone irl. If you can, get a Lumia 930 or 1520 as they are a bit faster, but the Lumia 925 has one of the best amoled displays on the market. I can say: its better than gs4 or even gs5 in color accuracy. Just jump on it.

Come to think of it... My phone hasn't ever had distortion or reception and call problems... Its definitely superior to my sisters gs4 like I said.
