Nokia Lumia 925 Hands-On: Few Sacrifices in a Lighter, Stylish WP8 Device

A few days ago, we unboxed the Nokia Lumia 925. T-Mobile’s WP8 flagship has some serious style, to be sure, and now, we’ve had some time to use it and give our general first impressions via a hands on video.

Overall, we’re mighty impressed with the Lumia 925: it’s much lighter than its 920 and 928 cousins without losing any processor speed, RAM, or battery size, but it does make some compromises with less storage (16GB vs. 32GB) and no on-board wireless charging. Compared directly to the Verizon variant (the Lumia 928), we do get an extra lens on the camera, but no Xenon flash, so there are some tradeoffs to be had on the Lumia 925.

So far, we’re really enjoying the speed of WP8 on the phone. Windows Phone 8 performs admirably on just 1GB of RAM, mostly due to good OS optimization, and the device just feels good in-hand.

We’ll have our review of the Lumia 925 up soon, but until then, feel free to peruse our gallery, and tell us what features you’d like to see or questions you might have down in the comments.
