Bad: can not replace battery
Comment: i have a job where i am away from a charging source which means i need to carry spare batteries, and yes i know that i am not the target customer. but! - the fact that this is special contractors only replacement, smacks of profiteering and being as inconvenient to the customer as possible. taking advise from the makers of there operating system no doubt
shame because it is a really good phone
Good: Screen, design, apps
Bad: nothing comes to mind
Comment: This isn't just the best phone I've owned, it is the best I have ever seen. It is just as zippy as my brother's Galaxy S4, it has the most amazing screen I've ever seen and with the wireless charging cover it looks simply amazing - the most futuristic smartphone design anywhere.
It is easy to have a go at the app ecosystem but if quality is more important to you than quantity you will be very happy, not just with the Windows Phone Store but also with the excellent Nokia apps that are available to all Lumia users. There are also some excellent WinPhone exclusives like Halo: Spartan Assault and, of course, the mobile version of Office. I reckon that 99% of users would find everything they need in the WinPhone app ecosystem and only the fussiest of power-users will find any real omissions. e.g. The official Instagram app might still be in beta but there have been several alternatives that have offered full functionality for some time.
Comment: very nice phone
Good: look & feel, high res screen, battery life, easy to learn how to use
Comment: The Lumia 925 is a doddle to use. Light and a better shape for reading or viewing YouTube or NetFlix - terrific high res screen. Very happy I moved from iPhone - I can customise the layout and emphasise the apps I use most often with a larger button and 200,000 apps is certainly enough for me! Free music, SatNav, link to PC, SkyDrive for Cloud storage .... the list goes on and on!
Bad: Only Dual-Core Processor
Comment: The phone seems good but the only thing which disappoints is its dual-core processing unit. We are live in Quad-Core and Octa-Core generation and still Nokia giving Dual-Core. Rest of the specs of Nokia Lumia 925 is good as mentioned at http://www.cheapmonthlymobile.co.uk/blog/index.php/the-complete-review-of-new-windows-8-smartphone-nokia-lumia-925/
Good: Everything, especially Microsoft Windows Phone 8
Comment: We've migrated from iOS and Android devices as a company and we all loving the experience. The quality of Nokia with performance and flexibility of Microsoft Windows Phone 8 foundation for developers and designers has worked extremely well together to produce this high end smartphone.
Once you understand the ecosystem and how beneficial and efficient it is without needing all the unnecessary apps it works very well, the app market is growing extremely fast now therefore within next few months we should see all the additional essential apps added to the listing.
Now looking forward to the rumoured OS update 8.1 or 9 which is currently code named Blue as it is meant to be bringing many currently missing and additional features.
Comment: i love nokia
Good: its design
Comment: this phone is just good
Good: Camera, Windows Phone 8 and its Design
Comment: I ? Nokia .
Bad: no SD slot, no removable battery
Comment: There's no way I'd buy a phone without a removable battery or SD card slot. If a phone has a software bug, the one sure way of rebooting it is to take the battery out. And if any company thinks I'm going to buy a new phone just because I want more memory they're living in cloud cuckoo land. You've got it wrong Nokia and Apple. You've got it right Samsung which is why I'm typing this on a Galaxy S3.
