Another way of making money out of the windows phone fans to upgrade from their L920 to the 925.. It's all marketing fluff.

not a huge technological jump...similar chipset (same?). Just updated camera and design... Might be worth it for some new person coming on to WP8 actually. Much better design the 920.

addresses some complaints about the size and weight of the 920

personally the size and weight don't bother me, but I guess I'm biased...

Simply put, if I wanted to spend $1000 plus on a phone this would be the one.

Best looking phone I have seen this year with a spec and build quality to back it up.

iPhone 5 wasn't exactly a 'huge technical jump' and most of the bells and whistles on GS4, the eye tracking for example, are borderline utility at best.

HTC One is similar so I guess it comes down to OS. I'm hoping Windows Phone and Windows 8 become more seamless over time, can't see Android doing anything similar.

I don't want to spend over $500 on a phone so I'll be buying further down the range but this looks like a cool phone.

The shape reminds me of the original iPhone.

Lets hope Vodafone don't get left behind by Telecom this time and release this phone here :)

Wonder how long it will take for the NZ carries to announce their interest in this device? Has Nokia mentioned a release date for the global market?

There are few noticeable differences that would make 925 appeal over the 920 to a lot of people. Weight, thinness are the biggest one's. Our company did not opt for the Lumia 920 due to their weight and instead we went for the Samsung Ativ S. The biggest complaint people had about the 920 was the weight and this model seems to fix that.

Weight + Thinner + better back low light camera (6th lens added) + better front facing camera

It's more for new users to buy this high end device rather than get the current 920 owners to upgrade to this.




Do whatever you want to do man.

I would probably buy this over the 920, if I were thinking about buying a WP, but I can't pretend the announcement isn't disappointing.

No xenon here, metal edges but polycarbonate back, no micro SD and smaller internal memory.

Agree with the micro sd and the small internal memory bit. 16gb just isnt enough these days. 32 should become the standard..

a micro sd would be handy as well.

I think this becomes less of an issue as more things get stored in the cloud. 16 gb is fine, more than enough, for music. Photos and such I don't want to store on the phone, I want them accessible anywhere. Video, is don't watch on a phone. 

I think battery life is where it is at.
