After launching the first few Lumia smartphones about a year ago, Nokia has seen steady growth in their revenues (32% quarterly growth) and although this may seem encouraging for the big mobile company, there is a cause for concern. Most of the mobile phones that have been sold in the Lumia edition smartphones have been their entry level phones. Nokia’s top-of-the-line smartphones have not done that well, which makes the launch of their new phone, the Lumia 925, a big gamble. Let’s see if the phone can live up to its predecessor – the Nokia Lumia 920.

When the Nokia Lumia 920 was launched, many people complained that the phone was too heavy and bulky. Another problem was the phone did not sit properly in the hand of the user. The Nokia Lumia 925, however, is what the 920 should have looked like. The Lumia 925 is 20% slimmer and 25% lighter, which makes the phone easier to grip. This is the first time that a Lumia phone has abandoned the polycarbonate backing and has gone with an aluminum frame. For those people who were comfortable with the polycarbonate backing, the Lumia 925 in Black still has the same material. The only drawback with regard to the design of the phone is that it comes in three colors – black, white, and gray which makes this series of phone dull in comparison to the previous colorful Lumias.

The dimensions of the phone are similar to the Lumia 920 and it also encompasses the same specifications. It has a 4.5inch AMOLED screen (the only difference between the 925 and 920) that gives a resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels, a 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm processor and a 1 GB RAM. It also has very good 8.7 megapixel pure-view camera with optical image stabilization. Another drawback of the phone is that it comes with a 16 GB in-built memory while the 920 came with a 32 GB in-built memory.
