    My contract on orange UK is about to finish. I've had a Lumia 800 for two years now and it's been fantastic. I'll be sticking with WP and Nokia. It has survived many, many drops/bumps etc.

    The problem is I don't know which phone to choose. I'd really like a 1020, but the high price puts me off and I don't really need the camera. The 1520 is a little bulky for my liking and it is also more than I want to spend (I'm tight). I'd like some advice please :)

    The lumia 625 seems a little cheap for my liking and has been out for quite a long time.

    In the "mid range" this only really leaves the 920 or 925, both of which I can buy outright and go on a sim only contract and make quite a saving over 24 months of a contract. But like the 625, these phones have been out for quite a few months; will they become obsolete very soon? The lumia 1320 isn't really out yet in the UK, is this the new mid-range lumia phone? I spend a lot of time leaching off these forums and similar websites (thanks guys!) so I know that no other phones have been announced, and if they were then it would be a few months until they actually hit the market.

    Last question; is there any difference in performance between the 920 and 925? I think the 925 is the better looking/feeling phone so will probably go for that. The similarity of the 920 to my 800 does interest me though. I'd expect it to bounce just as well on concrete!

    I love my 920 so im a little biased... Its solid as a rock, and I much prefer its weight to lighter stuff like the 925/galaxy range/iphones. The only real differences are that the 925 has an extra lens in the camera (so better pics in theory), and that its lighter (but that sacrifices wireless charging)... I would go and play with them in store, that's what i did with my 920. I wouldn't get anything with less than 1gb of ram (correct me if im wrong but i think th 625 is a 512mb?), as that will limit you... All the current hardware will get 8.1, and "threshold" is rumored for 2015 so you should get a solid year/year an a half in terms of os updates. I did a lot of research before choosing for my last contract, and a lot of it came down to the feel of the phone in store (once i manned up an got the courage to switch to wp lol). I don't think you could go far wrong with the 92x series if youre on a budget...

    If there is a 32 GB version of 925 go for it if not I recommend 920
