Review: Nokia Lumia 925 for T-Mobile
The Nokia Lumia 925 is no doubt the best Windows Phone available to T-Mobile customers. The unique design gives it a high-end look and feel that stands apart from Nokia's polycarbonate devices. Toss in compatibility with T-Mobile's LTE network, and you have features not available on other T-Mo WP8 devices.
Microsoft's software is just as powerful on the 925 as any other Windows Phone, but Nokia's added elements help give the 925 an edge. Apps such as HERE Maps and Nokia Music offer incredible functionality.
The 925's screen looks good, the battery life is excellent, and performance on T-Mobile's HSPA+ and LTE networks was quite good. I wish call quality were a bit better. The camera and its software is one area that Nokia takes pride in. While the software is easy to use and flexible to match the skills of the owner, the camera's results weren't quite as good as I'd like them to be.
