NOKIA LUMIA 925 WHITE 16GB RM-892 FACTORY UNLOCKED LTE 4G 3G 2G (2G & 3G HSDPA 850/900/1900/2100 & 4G 800/900/1800/1900/2100/2600)

Nokia Lumia 925 is a great Windows Phone 8 device released many years ago, which counts with a 4.5" touch-screen, a fast Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1500 megahertz, an 8.7 megapixels back side camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. That's all? Not at all, it's only the introduction.

Nokia decided to design this phone using a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 chip, including a good performance Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1.5 gigahertz with 1 GB RAM memory. Collaborating with graphic calculations, this phone also uses a 400 MHz Adreno 225 GPU. This phone comes with a 16 GB quite large internal storage and even though it doesn't have an external SD slot, it is enough to install hundreds of games and apps, but it might not be suitable if you are planning to install some of the heaviest games available nowadays.

Although this phone just has 5.08 inches long and 2.78" wide, it manages to contain a 4.5" screen. Being just 0.33" thick,this cellphone is thin and practical. The Lumia 925 is offerred in 3 different colors, black, gray and white. This device is much lighter than what you expect from a device like this.

This cellphone has a incredible 1280 x 768 4.5-inches display, which makes all images and videos look absolutely perfect. Its display uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, an 8.7 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front camera. Its back-facing camera has a maximum 2 aperture so it can take excellent pictures even in dark environments. It is also able to film videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. This camera also has a few good features like flash, auto-focus, face detection shooting, optical image stabilization and geo tagging.

This phone counts with a medium capacity 2000 mAh non-removable battery, and while it may look small, this phone has a great battery life. Nokia claims this device has a stand by time of 432 hs and a talk time of 18.3 hours. An issue to consider is that the Lumia 925's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it begins to lose its charge, even though with such a great capacity you will probably replace this cellphone before it happens.

This cellphone has wifi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed data connection and also HSPA+ data connection, a slower 4G type or 3G fast connection type, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Lumia 925 uses a Micro SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Navigation and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Lumia 925 is a great option for everyone considering it's an incredible cellphone and it costs only $ 160. This cellphone is definitely the correct option no matter if you you love taking photos, want a device for work, are looking for a cellphone to mainly use social networks or will use this cellphone to play games. The Lumia 925 includes SIM Door Key, Quick guide, Nokia Charging and Data Cable CA-190CD, Nokia AC-50 MicroUSB Charger and Nokia Headset WH-208.
