    Hi, i want to buy my new phone with good camera. I have 2 favorites:
    Lumia 920 - good price and photo quality
    Lumia 925 - better quality but is more expensive then L920 (+ 100 euro)

    after reviews I decided to buy L920 but after that I found forums here, where are bugs after new update which decrased photo quality. Is still issue or its already fixed ? your suggestions ?

    The 920's beauty is its perfection. I had a white one, gave it to my brother and got another red one. Would've got the 1520 if it was a 5 incher.

    I think the 920 is still a good phone, especially for the price these days.

    yes but what about photo quality ? This is what i worry about, because all reviews are before amber update which i read cause lower photo quality.

    there is a bit of a yellow tint, you can easily edit that, I find that the photo quality on the L920 is great

    My selfies are perfect. Quick pictures are as well. Professional pictures? Look elsewhere. Its a great camera, and on a phone it's one of the best, but a DSLR could beat it any day. However that goes for any phone.

    Yes, it's the best choice for that kind of money. I bought it a month ago and I love it. Yeah, there are some not so pleasant things like awful volume control and lack of notification center, but it will be fixed with 8.1 update. Battery life is pretty bad as well (worse than S3). Camera is pretty good, but nothing special (well actually it is much better than competitors during low light, but same in good lighting conditions).
    I would have bought Lumia 925 as it has batter camera & AMOLED display but 16Gb internal memory and luck of memory card and price difference stopped me.

    i have the 920 right now, good phone but tbh im moving on to the 925 because to me the 920 seems like a prototype for the 925 now don't get me wrong its a great phone and a solid option but to me the 925 is the completed version of the 920, either one you get, will give you a brilliant experience

    Do not buy a 920! It is a beta/guinea phone! Wait for the 929

    In a comparison between the 920 an 925 I'd go for the 920 since its got more internal storage. 32 over 16. And neither of the devices can be expanded using mem cards.

    925 has an extra lens, so your pictures might be sharper. But it lacks wireless charging, which makes it lighter.

    However, even with a wireless charging shell the 925 feels better. I think the camera is better on 925. Keep looking you might find a good used 925 that better suits your need rather than a 920 to help offset the cost difference. I had both of them and have settled into using an Lumia 810 which better suits my needs.

    I recently got a 920 and I really like it. The photo quality is way better than my wife's Nexus 5 (especially in low light). You can get it off contract for $300 on ATT right now in the states, which in my opinion is one of the best deals out there right now. I chose the over the Nexus 5 and Moto X because of the better camera and the off line mapping features. I have not experienced the yellow tint issues on my camera that others have discussed. I have seen a few other bugs (volume sticking is the only one that has actually bothered me), but not nearly as many as any of the Android phones I have tried.

    Summary:
    the 925 is lighter with a slightly better camera, and a worse screen (pentile is worse than IPS in most cases. Although being AMOLED does mean that it should have better battery life as long as you are not displaying tons of bright images).
    The 920 is heavier, but also a lot stronger. iirc, one of the writings for WPC had his ran over by 3 cars at high speeds and it works just fine.

    Neither is a good buy anymore, in my opinion. they run on 2012 hardware, and we sadly didn't see a 2013 refresh, beyond the 1520. Your best bet is waiting until the spring.summer, when the 8.1 hardware will come out.

    That said, I think that the 920 is better than the 925 if the prices are even. Having the wireless charging and guaranteed 32 GB of storage (some 925 models only had 16 GB) is bigger, to me, than any bit of thinness. That the 920 is cheaper than the 925 is icing on the cake, IMO.

    In some ways the 920 is the best buy, depending on your needs. I'm in love with wireless charging and have four QI wireless charging pads. The 925 and 1020 both sacrifice this unless you buy a shell which then gets in the way of getting a nice slim TPU case. The 1520 doesn't even do QI charging. The other devices have very specific things about them that are great, but the 920 in my mind is still the best all around device. Lots of case/accessories, and just about all relevant features/nokia software including the latest Nokia Black firmware.

    i donot own both the phones, but there are friends having both, which i have tried.
    with Nokia Camera App, there is no issue about imaging in 920 at all. it works awesome.
    if u r comfortable with the size and weight of 920, it is a still nice one to buy. u r not getting some extra ordinary in 925.
    920 is an excellent piece of hardware.

    I go to L920, after readings a lot of comparsions and videos I realized I like L920 design. Also lower price and fact that L925 is not so much better.

    Weight wont be problem ( i had Xperia SP - 155 g, soI thing 180G for L920 wont be much diference)

    Thanks to all !

    Excellent choice. I still love the L920, my son just got one. He loves it, and it holds up well. The picture quality is still very good.

    Enjoy, and let us know what you think of it.

    Just get a 920. The 925 isn't that much different. I just upgraded from my 920 to a 1020 since I do some Graphic Design and want to do some editing/crop work. The 920 still has a better camera than most phones.
