Nokia launches Lumia 925 with new Glance Screen feature

Nokia is rolling out the metal-built Lumia 925 today in Europe and the fresh Nokia flagship will come with a new “Glance Screen” feature that brings a standby clock and notifications to the lockscreen. You’d also be able to simply double tap on the phone screen to unlock it, a feature we first saw on MeeGo and the Nokia N9.

The “Glance Screen” feature is merely a beta, but it seems like a possible battery-saver as it’s always on and you don’t need to wake the device to just check the time. Moreover, Nokia promises to launch it soon on “most” other Windows Phone 8 Lumia smartphones with the Amber update in July.

The Nokia Lumia 925 today makes it global debut in Germany, and other European countries, China and the United States should get it in the near future. The 925 boasts a different, slightly more rectangular design but is otherwise an almost exact copy of the Lumia 920. Most notably, though, it is made out of metal for extra durability.

Wow Nokiawp8 users in denial now. Red thumbs. I don't see wp8 doing well, just up by 2% is that all, lmfao. Well Android iOs have risen staggeringly. And how could it be the best OS, when it hardly has any apps and games! Takes over 6to9 months for an app to reach wp8. Has no 1080p No quadcore Still on 720p When wp9 comes out it will have them, but that's 2014 june we have to wait for. Pathetic™

Tell us more than one logical reason you would need a 1080p screen? As most sites confirm that a human can't distinguish anything higher than 300ppi. Tell us why you need a quad core processor on a phone? does that 4 core's send your text messages 4 times faster than a single core? Even most high end games on PC's don't make use a all 4 core's! So please with you knowledge explain to us why people need this stuff?

Have you seen the movie Trollhunter? Trolls are ugly unintelligent creatures...just saying!

you want to play games, go buy PS or Xbox. You want Quad Core & 1080p, go buy a laptop. I'm sure the price is the same as a Galaxy S4.

I want a smartphone that can do all of that and more so I chose Android and Symbian, not some wannabe smartphone that is actually a featurephone. And yes, I want the TRUE PUREVIEW only found in Nokia 808 PureView, not some diluted marketing BS FauxView. Ever took 38MP pictures with your FauxView yet? I didn't think so.

So tell me how smart is your smartphone? Does the alarm go off when the phone is battery pull-off then back on but still turned off? Does it have REAL multitasking? Can you browse the filesystem and mass storage without a PC? Can you hook it up to an HDMI port to share your reports you've made to an HDMI enabled projector? Or maybe an HDMI HDTV? Can it open 38 apps at the same time without reloading the app? So it begs the question; IS WP REALLY A SMARTPHONE OS?

You cant thumb down, only up; Engadget and several other sites use dto have both as well and got rid of the thumb down/dislike button because of trolls like you defacing the comments section. That's also why Facebook doesnt have a dislike button.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Lmao, Trolls like me... Says the Exkurogane the Troll! .well atleast GsmArena on the blog section you can thumb down. PA will be loosing lot of regulars, they already have, there were so many regulars that don't post anymore.®

well im sure everyone left on here wont mind you go to, infact if you leave we might be able to have real discussions instead of having you flood the comment section with your copy and paste recycled comments your boring, same old same old, lets face it you talk about leaving to other sites but your all talk, you crave attention and will never leave P.A hope you keep up with these measures and ban this troll account everytime it pops up

Says the angry kid whose always in a violent aggressive mood, and kicks off when someone posts negative about NokiaWp8Symbian..... There are more haters that wants you not to post, cause all you do is bully, you are much worser than Trolls! So speaking the truth is known as Trolling and BS, you live in a life full of lies that you believe the truth is false. Well jealous Nokiawp8symbian fanboy you are! We understand that you'r brand and platform is getting funded by MS, so Nokia are tied bitches slaves to MS. We feel you'r frustrations and anger. We Androids, Fandroids Samsung Sony Lg Htc fans are proud and there doing well, unlike your's are living dead, sad pathetic useless platform™
