Nokia Lumia 925 is an impressive Windows Phone 8 phone launched back in the year 2013, which features a Dual-Core CPU speeding at 1500 MHz, a 4.5-inches multi touch screen, and two cameras, an 8.7 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera. But let's get into more detail.

This cellphone is a very compact device, taking into consideration it has a 4.5 inches screen and it is just 5.08 inches long. Being just 0.33 inches thick,this device is thin and practical. This phone is available in three different color options, black, gray and white. The Nokia Lumia 925 feels much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone of this size.

This phone comes with a great performance 1500 MHz Dual-Core processing unit, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 chip with 1 GB RAM. Graphic intensive games and apps usually eats lots of processing time, so this phone has an additional 400 MHz Adreno 225 GPU to help with that calculations. A nice aspect of this phone is the 16 GB quite big internal storage memory and while it doesn't include a slot for external memory cards, it is enough to install hundreds of applications, although it may not be enough if you are planning to install a couple of the largest games currently available or taking tons of pictures and videos.

The Nokia Lumia 925 has two cameras, an 8.7 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 MP front side camera. Its back-facing camera has an aperture of F2 so it can capture very nice photographs even in poor lighting environments. The Lumia 925 also films videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also includes a few interesting characteristics: flash, auto-focus, optical image stabilization, geo tagging and face detection shooting.

This cellphone is equipped with an absolutely amazing 1280 x 768 4.5 inches display, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels forming the display. This display uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This cellphone comes with a mid capacity 2000 mAh non-replaceable battery that provides this phone a great battery life. According to Nokia, this phone has a reported stand by time of 432 hours and a talk time of 18.3 hours. An issue to evaluate is that the Nokia Lumia 925's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to get older, whereas with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new cellphone before it becomes an issue.

The Lumia 925 counts with wi-fi capability (which it can share with other devices acting as a wireless router), 4G LTE high performance connectivity and also HSPA+ internet connection, a lower speed 4G variation or fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone works with a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

This cellphone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (3.0), GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone is being sold for just $ 225, a surprisingly low price comparing with similar phones. No matter if you will use it for playing games, need this device for work, you love taking photos or are looking for a social cellphone, this cellphone is probably the correct option for you. The Nokia Lumia 925 includes Nokia Charging and Data Cable CA-190CD, SIM Door Key, Nokia AC-50 MicroUSB Charger, Nokia Headset WH-208 and Quick guide.
