4 out of 5 eggs Not perfect, but very good 03/18/2014

This review is from: Nokia Lumia 925 T-Mobile 4G LTE No Contract Smart Phone with iLuv Portable Speaker Case

Pros: - I used to think that in order to "feel solid", a phone would have to be heavy, until I got the 925. This phone has the same "solid feel" as you get when you pick up an iPhone, but is much lighter.
- The screen is beautiful, and (for what I believe is the first time on a Windows Phone device), you can adjust the color balance settings until it 'looks right'
- Performance is fantastic: both touch responsiveness and app performance are super zippy.
- Call quality and data speeds are good. With an external antenna there were concerns about another "Antennagate" situation, but it's a non-issue
- The camera is also excellent, and much better than the 8 MP figure would have you believe. Nokia did some stuff involving the lens elements and image stabilization, and it has paid off. The low-light performance in particular might be the best I've ever seen on a phone.

Cons: - No SD card slot. Whatever amount of storage you buy, you're stuck with it. This isn't as big an issue since Microsoft offers free Sky^H^H^HOneDrive space (and it's easy to get more if you keep your eyes open for deals - I have 150 GB of OneDrive space and haven't paid a dime), and data speeds are good, but if you have a limited data plan or a ton of music it might be a deal-breaker.

Other Thoughts: Neither pro nor con, at least for me:
- The battery is nonremovable. For me that's only an issue if the battery life is lousy, which isn't the case.
- A couple strange design decisions, like the charging port on the top of the phone.
- The camera is great *if* you use the Nokia Pro Cam app. This can be a little confusing since the phone ships with like 4 camera apps installed out-of-the-box. Typical Microsoft :P
