    I've voted a firm no. It's a decent looking phone style wise but that's about it.

    No because I'm in a 2 year contract from when I got my Lumia 920, although even if I wasn't I still probably wouldn't as wireless charging is not built in so I would still end up choosing a 920 over the 925.

    I voted "undecided".

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with my 920, although a change is always nice.

    I'm in the need for a new phone as my galaxy s2 just broke, however the fact that it may come to Australia and if it did come it would be later in the year. The phone looks good but the distribution factors will probably make me look back to the galaxy or 920

    The Global variant is 16 GB but some carriers will have exclusive deals to sell a 32 GB model.

    I voted 'no' due to it being exactly the same phone as the 920, just lighter and with no wireless charging (and potentially smaller HD).

    Smaller HD? What does that mean? It has the same resolution, 4.5-inch screen and the screen is not pentile.


    I voted undecided. I will think till the release will I get Lumia 925 or wait till Q4 for new wave of flagships with a new WP8 update.

    Apologies - smaller HD was meant to refer to the storage (I'm old and think of storage as a hard drive).

    Perhaps a better way to put it would have been HDD (Hard Disk Drive).

    To each his own, but i think they gutted everything that made the Lumias unique for the sake if reviewers like the Verge. Looks run of the mill droid or even ugly (personal opinion) with horrible looking materials. Plus wireless charging is gone, or moved to a hideous back cover. If they crash and burn with this they fully desreve it. If EOS follows the same design, I'm jumping ship.

    I'll get if they have a 32GB Pentaband for Tmobile or if Nokia and Tmobile stop being jerks and put the 32 GB on Tmobile

    Perhaps...both are incorrect in though and it should just be 'storage'

    pretty strong opinion to jump ship from a Mobile OS Ecosystem just because the exterior design of a few phones isn't up to par. There will always be 920, 900, 620, look a likes, trust me Nokia won't stray away from the modern design element BUT the EOS might not stay with the 920 based design. Its gonna have a pretty decent bulge because of the camera sensor size.

    I was looking foward to this hoping it would at least be 32GB as my 8X is not cutting it at 16GB. There's no real reason to switch for me I'll have the same issues.

    No native wireless charging and 16GB storage did it for me (it's a no).

    I will wait for the next iteration, which will hopefully have better processor, higher screen resolution, better camera, in the smaller, lighter form factor with an updated W8 package (Blue maybe?).

    I hope it is not a central design change to have to use back covers for wireless charging even on the flagship device, this is a dealbreaker as far as I am concerned.

    Apparently no one on TMoUS. If the specs listed on http:/www.wpcentral.com/nokia-continues-lumia-story-lumia-925 are correct, the phone is missing some key TMoUS frequencies.

    I vote undecided, because I don't know when it comes to Indonesia, how much it price in Indonesia and I feel little bit strange with the camera humps....

    I'm only getting one if two conditions are met

    1) I can get 32gb on the carrier I want
    2) That Qi cover....is ****. Ill need an aftermarket design that isnt horrible and wont feel awkward in the hand.


    Tbh, I probably wont get it. It feels like a step back. The 928 was a brilliant example of how the 920 should have progressed, only improvements, no cuts. This 925 is a very bad design decision, as reflected by this poll. I find it hysterical that Verizon being pushy were able to design a better phone than Nokia's internal team.

    Very unhappy right now...I may have to stay on droid :'(

    What I meant to say was that i am waiting for Eos since, well the 808. Have a Lumia 800 and i am still amazed by that design. I am really worried though if this signals a change. If Eos will follow this run of the mill htc/sony design rather than the "old" Lumia design language, my next upgrade is not Nokia. I'll have to look elswhere... Even the Sammy WPs have more "personality" than this - and that's saying something.

    Not getting it only because I already have a 920. Anyone with a 920 would probably vote "no". Nothing wrong with that, given that majority of us 920 owners wait for the EOS.

    Honestly, I was expecting a lot more from NOKIA, but I can understand Microsoft puts a limit on the manufacturer.. it's not a good thing for your flagship device has the same processing power from the year before, same amount of RAM, display resolution, and the only real differentiator is the camera. I get the phone is thinner, but the aluminum looks unattractive with the lines and cuts, and would've looked a lot better if it was a single piece of aluminum. Still though, I can't get over the fact that it's just the 920 in a slimmer profile.. that's terrible, considering a year has gone by and everything remains the same. Also- why did they name their flagship phone the 925 and a slightly modified 920 for Verizon the 928? I guess they are technically the same phone, just different casing.. sigh... I thought Windows Phone would surpass Android, but it's going to be another year until we see an improved Lumia...
    Thanks,
    Daniel
