    What I meant to say was that i am waiting for Eos since, well the 808. Have a Lumia 800 and i am still amazed by that design. I am really worried though if this signals a change. If Eos will follow this run of the mill htc/sony design rather than the "old" Lumia design language, my next upgrade is not Nokia. I'll have to look elswhere... Even the Sammy WPs have more "personality" than this - and that's saying something.
    For somebody like me who has owned N9 (the device the design truly worked for and was made for with no front buttons and one big curved glass), Lumia 800 and Lumia 920, i'm totally sick of the poly design.

    Nokia usually does follow one design for a while in high end, Like N8, E7 or E series metal devices, but enough is enough. While I do like 925 design, I do hope we see something very unique on EOS. 925 design could work on Nokia's phablet.

    Honestly, I was expecting a lot more from NOKIA, but I can understand Microsoft puts a limit on the manufacturer.. it's not a good thing for your flagship device has the same processing power from the year before, same amount of RAM, display resolution, and the only real differentiator is the camera. I get the phone is thinner, but the aluminum looks unattractive with the lines and cuts, and would've looked a lot better if it was a single piece of aluminum. Still though, I can't get over the fact that it's just the 920 in a slimmer profile.. that's terrible, considering a year has gone by and everything remains the same. Also- why did they name their flagship phone the 925 and a slightly modified 920 for Verizon the 928? I guess they are technically the same phone, just different casing.. sigh... I thought Windows Phone would surpass Android, but it's going to be another year until we see an improved Lumia...
    Because the 928 is a better phone. Proper internal memory size not this 16gb nonsense. Super loudspeaker. 3 mic array. Qi charging built in.

    925 has none of that. Its a complete design flop. Nokia shares are already going down again after rising yesterday.

    Depends on the pricing for me. Seeing as it is coming end of June, and how it is just another 'iteration' of the 920 in a different form factor, I may just wait for the next "big one". Overall I think it looks like a solid phone, its not as eye-catching as the 920 but it grows on me the more I look at it.

    I planned on switching to T-Mobile in October after my AT&T contract is up, but I really don't like the 925. I think it looks like a Huwei Android device and goes against all Nokia design principles. Plus it has fewer features than my 920. I think Nokia made a big mistake with this one.

    I think some ppl are misunderstanding the 925 launch. I don't think it was ever meant to be a complete upgrade from "the year before", but rather the new, slightly different variant of the 920 for T-Mobile customers...just as the 928 is the new flagship variant for Verizon customers.

    I am getting it because I realize it's not suppose to be an upgrade of the 920 but just another variant for T-Mobile like the 928 is for Verizon and it's unique because it's their first Aluminum Lumia phone and well I really like it and I'm thinking I'm get a black one with a nice color wireless back sleeve ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I just hope its not late June but rather early June.

    I'll probably grab it coz I've been with Nokia for more than a decade n I'll do what I always do to support them but having said that I'm pretty underwhelmed to have almost the same specs as the 920, I'm a little worried now that the platform might not survive unless something drastic is done! Whoever came up with this idea needs to be instantly ousted!!!

    Agreed. Its a shame. I've just ordered an HTC One cos I just couldnt wait any more and I wanted something decent. Its a shame. I would have got the 928 in a heartbeat if it was sold in the UK. Oh well, Nokia have exactly 24 months to come up with something now :D

    What exactly could you put on the phone to upgrade past what the 920 was at? Windows Phone 8 isn't having a major update till later this year. That means the same resolutions, same processors, all the same standards are there. Android may be throwing out ridiculous specs, but what exactly are you going to use them for? The iPhone 5 is still running off a 1.1GHz processor. There's no software and no call for software in a smartphone that would need high-level Android specs. Don't even get me started on 1080p screens.

    If we can remember, I believe it was always a thought back last year that the 920 would launch on AT&T first then 3 to 6 months later other carriers would start to get their 92x phones. I'm exhilarated to finally be able to move on to a Windows Phone 8 flagship. A Nokia flagship no less! I was seriously expecting this phone to be another AT&T exclusive but the fact that it's actually T-Mobile's just thrills me to no end.

    That Qi case does look pretty ugly from the front though.

    EDIT: The memory space is a less than desirable but I'll make it work.

    It is my kind of flagship phone, aluminium and Amoled but i do not have money to buy this thing so i will yust wait for problably Nokia Lumia 840 :D. It is better phone than Lumia 920 but it is not sucssesor of it. Look at it like it is facelift, when let say Ford facelifts their car you are not unhappy becuse is worser than new Honda. You are not expecting big changes until new generation. For real change wait until September/October in Autum I expect real 920 successor.

    Everyone has to understand that this is not supposed to be a brand new model. Its a variant of the already great 920, for T-mobile customers. I think this is great. More flagship phones for more carriers mean more exposure for the platform. They should've launched all of these at the same time back in October. I personally don't plan on switching..as I already have a Rogers unlocked red 920 on Tmobile and pretty happy with it. I prefer the color and I actually prefer the weight. I'm definitely looking forward to that Amber update though. Just goes to show you that in WP8 world...you cannot go wrong with Nokia. There support is outstanding. Every mid-high range Lumia model will get this update. That is something that keeps the value of my 920 equal to the rest of the new models. If this was an android phone...my phone would be absolete as of today.

    The thing is though, Nokia say that it has an Aluminium body but it doesn't. It has an Aluminium strip round the edge but still has a plastic back.

    Yes, for me since it would be a decent upgrade from my Lumia 900 running WP 7.8 and finally jump into WP8. Hope Rogers gets this phone and the 32GB version. Anyone know if the main camera lens cover is made of durable material such as sapphire crystal to prevent scratches, just worried it sticks out from the back cover. There's always the protective cover that was shown by WPCentral crew. Now, I just have to hurry up and wait ;)

    Maybe the innards or the frame is aluminium. The polycarbonate back was chosen for a reason, there's an article on WPCentral where Nokia answers questions about the 925.

    Ugh I'm torn between the 925 and 928 at the moment (assuming the 928 is really pentaband and has AWS capability). I like the look of both (925 slightly in the lead in that department).

    I guess it will come down to whether or not the North American version has 32GB.

    Yes, but it's kind of misleading for Nokia to say it has an aluminum body when in fact it doesn't really

    I will get a 925 if it comes to Bell in Canada, and the sooner the better. Buying a new 925 at the end of June totally sucks, because then we're only 4 months away from the real "shut up and take my money" lumia's (or so we hope).

    The 925 is 6 months too late. :( No more 6 month exclusivity deals - please!!!!!

    same here! im on verizon now but i have been seriously considering switching to tmobile for a couple months now. verizon has great service but they are just too damn expensive. I think i like the 928 more than the 925 though mainly for the built in wireless and more mature design but like i said, i really wanna switch to tmobile. does anybody know if the 928 can be purchased unlocked and then used via tmobile? because that would be ideal for me.

    thanks.

    Oh and hey yall im anthony! trophy owner ready to upgrade!! haha.

    You should switch to t-mobile and try to find friends or family members to do a family plan with that way the price gets reduced for either you or them

    I was pretty upset to find out the 925 came with only 16gb of internal storage and no SD option but alas, a flagship Nokia device is headed to T-Mobile. Although a slight compromise, I will definitely be getting the black 925 on day one hopefully. It is sexy and I'm really interested to see how the camera will perform.

    Not getting it only because I already have a 920. Anyone with a 920 would probably vote "no". Nothing wrong with that, given that majority of us 920 owners wait for the EOS.
    The 925 isn't meant for 920 owners in the first place as those owners were more than likely on AT&T or whatever exclusive carrier Nokia sided with. Its meant for those of us (T-Mobile and others) who have been drooling to get our hands on a flagship Nokia device albeit with lowered storage. What a dumb move Nokia!
