No, not really. I like the dynamic of the Android app marketplace with constant small updates. I have been using the BlackBerry Z10 for the lat ten days now, and even though the number of apps is not as large as Android or Windows Phone, they actually have almost all the apps I use. And the BlackBery Hub, where you see all messages and notifications from all apps (and you can reply from there too) is a miles ahead of the Microsoft implementation of Messaging - which as I always said should be a plugin-enabled message centre for all apps to post there, instead of just SMS, Facebook and Messenger.

Have been told that the 925 failed the Telecom coverage tests and more than likely will not launch here by Telecom atleast. They might look at at it again if Nokia fixes the coverage issue but it's highly unlikely that they will stock this.




Do whatever you want to do man.

I find that hard to fathom.  Nokia have been making cell phones since Adam was in short pants, their phones have a reputation for having good radios and giving coverage where other phones don't.

My Dad has a friend at PB Tech who offered me a reasonable deal on the 925. However he strongly recommended against Nokia WP's because the are the most frequently returned for repair and are showing to be extremely unreliable. A lot of threads around here seem to reflect that too. The only other WP I'd consider is the 8X which is waaay cheaper, but Nokia's additions to WP8 are too compelling.

Or I could jump to Android and get the HTC One. But I don't think I could bring myself to do that :(

umm the Nokia Lumia handsets are very reliable. You will find many threads on iPhone's, HTC, Samsung etc with issues as well.

Good price. I got the white one too, thought it was much nicer than the black because of the aluminium case

I love the anodized aluminium on the black model, but something about the matte white polycarbonate is really captivating. I might pick up a yellow wireless charging cover at some point though... a flagship Lumia just doesn't seem right without a splash of colour!

Is anyone using the 925 on Telecom?  There is an article on WPCentral about Telecom not stocking the 925, and that is the phone I have been wiating for as a worthy replacement for my Lumia 800.
