Nokia has made a new addition to its Lumia series by launching the Nokia Lumia 925. This new smart phone has features similar to Nokia Lumia 92. The competition between Nokia and Samsung became tougher when Samsung Galaxy S4 was launched. This had a bad effect on the sales of the Lumia handsets. The latest Lumia 925 is packed with superb features such as the 8.7 megapixel sensor with the Nokia PureView technology. It also includes Carl Zeiss lens and optical image stabilization.
Build and Design
Nokia has made drastic changes in the design of the Nokia Lumia 925 by building all its crucial components in metal. It is not a single bodied metal phone like the HTC One as its back plate is made of polycarbonate while a thick metal band highlights its edges. These firm metal edges and the solid back panel make this phone look quite impressive. It weighs 139g and is 8.5mm thick making it slimmer and lighter than the Lumia 920 which is of the same size. It is also easier to grip owing to its amazing matte surface structure. This touchscreen has a few buttons and ports like power button, volume rocker, camera shutter button, headphone jack and micro USB port. It doesn’t have a microSD slot but has 16GB internal storage memory. Its GSM radio supports 850/900/1800/1900 bands. It also has WCDMA support for 850/900/1900/2100 as well as LTE support for 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz.
The Nokia Lumia 925 has got organic LED display as opposed to the LCD display which was used in the earlier models. This new technology offers improved contrast ratios, better viewing angles as well as faster response time. The 4.5 inch Lumia 925 enables users to get sharp text on the display due to its resolution of 1280×768 pixels and pixel density of 332 pixels per inch.
Like the earlier models, the 8 megapixel camera of Lumia 925 works on the PureView technology. This technology features large aperture lens, optically stabilised camera array and backside illuminated camera sensor. As opposed to Lumia 920’s 5-part lens, Lumia 925 uses a 6-part lens ensuring that better photos are clicked even in low-light conditions. Its built-in Smart Camera app gives the facility to capture photos in various shooting modes including burst shot mode, best shot, action shot, change faces, motion focus, remove moving object, etc.
Even though the wireless charging facility is not present in Lumia 925, users can charge their phones using the optional wireless charging case. This charging case also helps in levelling the protruding camera. The wireless charging pillow and dock needs to be bought separately as Nokia doesn’t provide it with the phone.
The Nokia Lumia 925 is an amazingly designed phone having metal parts that make it look attractive. It runs on the Windows Phone 8 and has features similar to Nokia’s flagship phone, Lumia 920. To know more about the specifications, check this space!
