The tech world had been waiting for quite a while for Nokia to unveil its next big offering, a smartphone that could take on the best of the best. Lumia 925 might have taken its time coming, but boy, was the wait worth it!I spent some time with the handset and was pleasantly surprised to find that Nokia has finally come onto its own. Check out my review of the latest offering from the tech giant.

Design and Display

The fits thing that hits one about the Lumia 925 is how slim it is – and how good looking. A sleeker, lighter variant of the Lumia 920, it stands out with its aluminium frame – a first from Nokia. Weighing in at just 139g and measuring 8.5mm in thickness, the flagship is Nokia’s pride and joy with good reason.

At first glance itself, one can make out the effort Nokia has put into crafting its masterpiece. With its clean lines and angular shape it is the definition of sophistication.

The front and back panels of the handset are polycarbonate and sit comfortably within the aluminium frame, giving the best of both worlds to its users.

While the frame’s contrasting lines detail the corners of the phone beautifully, the metal edging serves a functional purpose too – it houses the device aerials. The slightly curved back holds the PureView camera and at the bottom lies the punched speaker grill.

The contoured glass display on the front of the handset is surrounded by black fascia, and it gives the illusion of expanding from edge to edge. In a familiar stylizing move, Nokia has placed the power and volume keys on the right hand side of the handset and a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microUSB port and a Sim tray on its top. The phone conveniently comes with a dedicated shutter button to activate the camera.

The Lumia 925’s 4.5-inch AMOLED display packs in a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels and a pixel density of 332 ppi.

Visuals on the handset are rich, vibrant and sharp thanks to Nokia’s PureMotion HD+ and ClearBlack technologies. The phone is quite durable too, with its Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection.
