Nokia Lumia 925: what PureView Lumia should have been originally
posted by Victor H. / May 14, 2013, 5:30 AM
There is definitely nothing new in terms of processing power and screen technology. The Lumia 925 has the same 4.5-inch 768 x 1280 pixel display (this time it’s AMOLED, like on the Lumia 928) with super sensitive touch.
The handset also features the same old dual-core Snapdragon S4 with 1GB of RAM, a configuration that sounds decidedly mid-range nowadays. The camera looks like the same 8.7-megapixel one with a optical image stabilization and Carl Zeiss lens. It’s also got Wireless Charging and it also makes the phone thick as you have to dress it in a special case.
The Nokia Lumia 925 is basically on many levels the same old Nokia Lumia 920 but without its heft and bulkiness, and with a sleeker camera interface. Nokia calls it Smart Camera and plans to bring it to all other Windows Phone 8 Lumias. Is it worth upgrading to the Lumia 925 now? Probably not, but for new users wanting to explore Windows Phone this seems like the new standard.
And here is a recap of the Lumia 925 features and spec highlights.
- Display 4.5" 768 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8.7 MP / 1.2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB
- Battery 2000 mAh(12.8h 3G talk time)

Am I the only one who feel this looks worse than the Lumia 920. And the colors Nokia chose is awful

Too big. Rather just wait for the EOS, where camera quality will justify the size. Wait, wasn't the EOS supposed to be announced today or something?

This phone looks ugly compared to the 920.

Looks are highly subjective, but I agree. The more rounded 900/920 unibody is undeniably Nokia and quite attractive. This could be any midrange LG. I'd trade thinness for style that stands out.

Quite true. But this design doesn't spell out Nokia. It's like all of a sudden Nokia decided to ditch the previous design that worked well and replace it with something a bit boring. I just think they should have continued the 920 style trend but improve it along the way rather than just make this.

"The handset also features the same old dual-core Snapdragon S4 with 1GB of RAM, a configuration that sounds decidedly mid-range nowadays." For crying out loud, this is NOT a point of criticism! WindowsPhone does NOT NEED quad-core and masses of RAM compared to Android phones to work smoothly. Why even raise the issue..........it's NOT an issue!!!!!!!!

...aaaand this is what we can call bias, people: raising non-existent issues (in this case: old processor, low RAM) and creating impressions (mid-range specifications). Congrtas, PA, you're almost reaching GSMArena-levels of bias.

"Weak Analogy Explanation Arguments by analogy rest on a comparison. Their logical structure is this: (1) A and B are similar. (2) A has a certain characteristic. Therefore: (3) B must have that characteristic too. For example, William Paley’s argument from design suggests that a watch and the universe are similar (both display order and complexity), and therefore infers from the fact that watches are the product of intelligent design that the universe must be a product of intelligent design too." An argument by analogy is only as strong as the comparison on which it rests. The weak analogy fallacy (or “false analogy”, or “questionable analogy”) is committed when the comparison is not strong enough."

The comparison seems pretty damn strong to me. We're not comparing ambiguities like "order and complexity," we're comparing solid features such as "dual-core Snapdragon processors" and "1 GB of RAM." The weakest point of the comparison is the difference between operating systems.
