Nokia Lumia 925 is the thinnest Windows Phone 8 smartphone to date (size comparison)

Nokia Lumia 925 is the thinnest Windows Phone 8 smartphone to date (size comparison)

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.

At 139 grams, the Nokia Lumia 925 is a whopping 46 grams lighter than the 185-gram Lumia 920. The Nokia Lumia 928, which is to launch exclusively with Verizon Wireless in the U.S. on May 16, stands in the middle between the two, tipping the scales at 162 grams. Interestingly, the Samsung ATIV S is even lighter than any of these three smartphones, weighing only 135 grams despite having a larger screen.

Thickness is another thing that Nokia has focused on. Since the Lumia 925 has no built-in wireless charging, it comes as no surprise that it's thinner than its siblings. In fact, with a thickness of only 8.5 millimeters, it ranks among the slimmest Windows Phone smartphones to date, and it's actually the thinnest WP8 handset announced so far. To get a better idea about the size and proportions of the Nokia Lumia 925, take a look at it below next to the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 928, and the Samsung ATIV S.

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

4. xperiaDROID

Posts: 5629; Member since: Mar 08, 2013

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 !

Hmm.....really? 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.

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

Posts: 5629; Member since: Mar 08, 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: 3487; Member since: Oct 26, 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: 3487; Member since: Oct 26, 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.

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

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

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

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.

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: Oct 30, 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.
