THE HIGHS: CAMERA & DESIGN
Holding an Impressive 8.7 MP Camera with technologies like Optical Image Stabilization and Pure View, Lumia 925 is among the best in smartphone Cameras. The Camera tech for Nokia Lumia 925 has an edge over the Lumia 928 in the Carl Ziess Lens. Nokia and worked with Carl Ziess to produce a 6 lens camera for the Lumia 925 which significantly improves Low Light Imaging, a camera feature Nokia has been working on for a long time.
The Camera app is another smart addition to Nokia’s Imaging capabilities. Nokia calls its app for various imaging features ‘Smart Camera’. Some features of Smart Camera include
Burst Mode-10 frames in 2.5 s
Best Shot-Selects the best shot among the frames captured
Motion Focus-Identify objects Wanted or Unwanted and remove or Enhance their presence in the Image
Group Shot-Face-combining system to get the best image out of the frames
Action Shot-Identifies a moving object and combines the frames to create several shots of the object in 1 photo
The Design of the Nokia Lumia 925 is extremely impressive. Fit in a metal chassis, the phone is a treat to hold with a polycarbonate back plate. Nokia has tried to keep its product different from the otherwise unibody metal design smartphones like the HTC One. The phone is 8.5mm thick which is not a very great reduction as compared to Lumia 920 but the Phone feels incredibly lighter and easier to grip esp. with the Polycarbonate body bulging and thus providing a better Grip
THE LOWS: PROCESSOR & OS
The Nokia Lumia 925 is after all a Dual-Core phone with Snapdragon S4 processor. Considering how much heights have the Android Phones Reached, the Nokia flagship stands among the Mid-range phones when compared to Android. The Camera app Smart Camera wasn’t running very smooth
Considering the Operating System, the Nokia Lumia 925 is very similar to the Nokia Lumia 920 with not many features added to the device except for the Smart Camera and an Instagram like app Hipstagram. The Windows Phone 8 based smartphone will not be much of interest for those who were expecting a flurry of apps for the Windows phone 8.
The Smartphone will be coming in June for Verizon. Pricing will be available Soon
