The best smartphone I've ever had
Sovat_fc has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Here is a former Android user, just moved to WP 3 months ago! Great job Microsoft I really love the OS, stable & fast. The camera is absolutely awesome, especially in low light. I will actually no longer return to Android again!

Best low light camera phone i ever had
tim123 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I have owned a lot of different phones from all big platforms (IOS, android and WP) and this has gotta be the best lowlight camera phone i have ever had. The best part is that comes in a sexy metal built that is super thin and light.
I'm completely satisfied!

The best phone I've ever had. I have bought the phone in december 2013 and it feels modern, stylish and fast! Probably my next phone will be from Nokia as well! But I definitely recommend to check it out first, because WP is not for everyone, though it is ok for me. I guarantee that you will be amazed by the in-hand feel, it outperforms iPhone's feel easily!

The best WP money can buy
xoxoGeorges has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
It's a really good phone with a lot of class attached. I always get compliments for it! It has no direct competition except for the 920 (which is roughly the same but is heavier and has a slight camera disavantage). I never thought WP was this quick and it's very easy to use. Also, the keyboard is actually better than my E75 (which is frequently regarded as the best keyboard on a phone)

Surprisingly Good Phone!
Nimay_7 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
The build quality is really good it looks very classy, the UI is buttery smooth, Camera is THE BEST in its class (8 Megapixel Competitors) it outshines every other phone in low light photography, really nice web surfing, disappointing call quality, loudspeaker, reception compared to XT 910 (RAZR), really good web surfing, phones gets heated up really fast maybe due to Chasis, good text input, good enough battery, no HDMI (i require it)
This phone has numerous issues....

Although the Lumia 925 gets rave reviews, they fail to properly address the shortcomongs of this phone. This phone has inherant problems. It gets extremely hot. Hot enough that it is uncomfortable against my face. The phone will get hot, even when 'sleeping' and the battery will drop 20% per hour. There are problems with reception as well. Pick the phone up off the table and the no service icon appears a few seconds afterward.

Greatest Windows Phone experience FOR ME - SO FAR
SemperFiV12 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Definitely a great feeling phone... Slim and STURDY. Nokia build quality is the best that I have used - BAR NONE. Also, very impressed with the software Nokia is pushing. Could be better, but they have frequent updates and support their "Nokia Collection" nicely. A truly wonderful experience after a series of mediocre showings from Android and other Windows Phones. New antenna device is VERY under-rated, I get better signal than other T-Mobile phones 9/10 times. 1/10 times it is equal!! Also the camera... as played out as Nokia and Microsoft advertise... DOES IMPRESS. I have convinced friends from other platforms to switch, just because of picture prowess. The screen is the BEST I have ever used, just a joy to look at and play with!! Great battery life... Truly no weak links!!! Would recommend to EVERYONE.

Nice Phone, Excellent build quality and Outstanding camera
cdgoin has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
While still waiting for a QWERTY Windows Phone.. My 6th Dell Venue Pro finally met it maker (Keyboard died) and I needed a new phone. So I upgraded to the 925. Camera is exceptional.. low light is unbelievable even if you turn off the auto flash. Battery lasts longer than all day.. with moderate use. Much better than any of my other phones I have had, outside my Dell Venue Pro. My DVP being older has issues and doesn't get all the cool apps, to me it will always be my Goldilocks phone. Overall with the 925, I am quite happy with it. Just wish Nokia would make a QWERTY sooner than later.

7/17: I just got this about an hour ago, and already I don't miss my Lumia 900 daily driver. I didn't realize that Windows Phone could be FASTER! Still getting used to some differences between 7.8 and 8, notably the different settings layout, and my previous theme color, Nokia Blue, isn't available. I also didn't realize how relatively heavy my 900 was - the 925 is sleek, sexy, and trim, and a smaller bezel, so my fingers fit even more naturally on the keyboard; the device was codenamed "Catwalk" while in development, so very appropriate for this thin, light, sexy phone. More updates to come as I get more used to it.
My only minor issues so far are related to storage and color. Out of the box, it has just shy of 12GB of available storage. It's not so bad, coming from the Lumia 900, but more is always nicer. That said, I have SkyDrive and Box for most of my storage needs. Also, the T-Mobile US version is only available in white, which is dumb, especially as the gray version is so much more cohesive and compelling. As noted above, Nokia's Blue isn't available as a theme option, but if you didn't have it before, you probably won't miss it with the other hues available. I'm using the default Steel right now.
9/3 Update: Everything is still going very well with the 925. I wasn't able to move my saved game files over from my Lumia 900, but all the other settings, music, contacts, etc, moved flawlessly. Battery life is MUCH better than the 900, even on LTE and with the much-more-powerful...
Great Phone! Boring OS :(

I had this phone since August 2013 and I like everything about it. However, recently I'm starting to think about switching to Android because of the lack of some of my favorite apps (Strava - had to find an alternative in WP, CoC - I play this on my Nexus tablet). Too bad because I really love the UI of Windows Phone. :(

Nokia has done a great job. The camera is only 8MP, Yet it performs like a professional camera. Nokia and Microsoft is the perfect match for this phone......
Performance is smooth and fast and overall I will recommend this phone to any Windows phone maniac.................. ;)

Good phone shame about 'app gap'
mikec999uk has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
This is a very good phone, would recommend getting a protective case and screen protector when you buy. Wish they would hurry up with the Skygo app and would prefer to have the choice of web browser instead of being stuck with Internet Explorer. I am glad I sold my iphone for this.
Im ok withit

This is a really fantastic smartphone. The camera is the best with awesome colors. It includes optical stabilizer which works great. There are plenty of apps in the store, and not mentioning the apps from Nokia which are amazing (Here drive+, Smart cam, Pro cam, Creative Studio, etc)

Great phone! Very simple yet amazing! Thin, light, sexy and very classy.
My only concern is the storage and the battery. How I wish it has 32gb storage or at least allow to put an expandable memory. The battery is depleting at 7.5% per hour, how sad.
But all in all, Im satisfied :)

Coming from having a Lumia 710, I am really enjoying this phone, pretty cool camera, battery life is superb, what else can I say, this phone is pretty cool, especially if you're looking for an alternative to Android and iPhone, I guarantee you won't be disappointed by choosing this phone, I mean it's a Nokia, you can never be wrong with a Nokia, this is my fourth phone made by Nokia, and they always deliver.
