The flash from the camera on mine produces a very strong yellow-green color cast. I'm assuming this could be fixed in a software update. Still, there should be flash setting in the white balance.
My 925 occasionally craps out to the lock screen. Don't know why. Never had that problem on another device.
Does anyone's 925 get really hot in the top right corner?
I'm assuming the soc is positioned right there, but it seems unusual that nokia would ship a device that would get to hot to hold on an hour long Skype call.
Now that I've had a chance to keep my phone connected to the charger, I guess my experience wasn't really a bug. My phone would have trouble establishing a connection to my Wi-Fi network after being turned on (or after a reset). I would have to type in the password every time. I thought that it was because Wi-Fi Calling was on, as there seems to be some weird issues whenever that is enabled. That doesn't seem to be the case. My HTC Radar didn't have such issue, but whatever...
can somebody comment on the white back plate? the units i saw in the store were all dirty and had grey scratches all over the white surface although they've only been out for a day.
I was pretty scared of that too but I took white because I think it really suits the 925 best.
From my first 3 weeks with it, I can say I'm pretty confident. It can get slightly dirty it but it's very easy to clean.
The good thing is that the slight camera bump + the two dots surrounding the speaker prevents it from having most part of the plastic touching surfaces on which you leave the phone.
Whas it a live device you saw ? Ordinary dummy units tend to look quite bad because cheaper materials are often used to build them.
I'm quite confident with how the phone will age. Also, white matte plastic usually does a better job at hiding scratches than glossy white or even matte black.
yep, those were the real units people have been playing with for a day or two. maybe the security devices they put on and off them are to blame too.
Here is a bug I found a reported it to Nokia's US Twitter support. The Bing picture of the day setting for the lock screen appears not to update unless you toggle it off and on. But actually it appears that the process that updates the image should be called Bing picture from yesterday because it updates from the previous day due to some unknown reason. So if you think the picture is stuck, wait one more day.
Is anyone else having random restarts?! I had those on the 920 and I'm sad to see them still on the 925. Yesterday went for a bike ride, and ran Runtastic Pro, and after 10 min took the 925 out of the pocket and it was restarted on the pin screen. At the end of the day on the ride back, same thing! Anyone else has restarts? This is very bad...
I have noticed this too, but it is only when I have wifi calling enabled. If I turn off wifi calling, then click the link, the picture loads. It is something they detailed in the WP Central Wifi calling feature, that you couldn't view MMS messages while connected to it. You can only send and receive calls and SMS.
I have had my 925 since Wednesday's launch, and have noticed 2 things.
1) When viewing the screen in a darkroom at night, if the screen is illuminated with an all black background, it looks like there are blotches of darkness coming down from the top right corner. It is hard to describe, as if there was black ink under the glass. This is not noticeable in daylight or even in dim places, but only when I am in pitch blackness and scrolling through something that has an all black background. It is not like dead pixels, because there is certainly color represented.
2) Does anyone remember viewing the video about the phantom 920 moving on its own sitting on a table top? It had something to do with the curved polycarbonate body and the oils from your hands. I have noticed, when placing my 925 on my leather couch, face down, that it eventually will slide it's way off the couch, eventually, without being touched. This was the first time it fell to the floor for me. I was so shocked, but then remembered what had happened with the 920. I immediately ordered a Skinomi for my 925, so there would be a little difference in texture when it is facedown.

For some reason, on the 925, have two duplicate Hotmail accounts. I'd like to keep Hotmail 2 which syncs contacts, calendar, and messages (in addition to email), but I can't delete Hotmail.
Same blotches on my device, as it has no influence at all on display quality, i can live with it. But i was also surprised, what the hell is that. But really looks like its normall on this type of display.
I have problems sharing photos that I have taken with my 925 via MMS. Often the received photo is nothing but a solid color on the bottom half. I have found the same results with both TMobile and AT&T recipients. I suspect this issue is a file-size limitation with MMS, or perhaps TMobile's implementation, because I have better luck with images that are cropped or scaled down.
Anyone else seeing the same?
