    The GS4 and the iPhone 5 both come standard with 16gb and retail for $199 on contract. The HTC One comes with 32gb standard, but also retails at $199.

    The notion that the 925 has an unacceptable amount of storage at 16gb while retailing for $100 less than standard is kinda ridiculous. The phone us cheaper than the competitors, while matching the two best-selling devices in the world.
    On T-Mobile the phone is the same exact $569 with their new plans. The Galaxy S4 has expandable memory and the HTC One comes with 32gb straight out the box. You do the math.

    Expandable storage means you have to spend more money to get more storage. The HTC One had to sell or the company would go under, so they priced it super competitively.

    Now you do the math. :P

    Lol ok you got me there but the point is they all cost the same price on the same carrier. One of the devices is stuck with 16gb while the others are not. Lets not make it complicated guys.:)

    I agree with you, but to me (and many others) only having 16GB isn't a super negative thing.

    We all know that you're not going to buy the phone and why. Let's drop this issue (there is a thread specifically for this subject, btw) and get back to other people's reasons for why or why they won't buy it.

    The fact that htc dropped support for the one s has pushed me back to getting the 925. I won't buy Samsung as I think their hardware is lacking and I honestly wouldn't consider any other Android device besides the One but who knows how long support would last on that device..

    I'll only get the 925 if it has a 32Gb version this 16Gb without expandable memory is a joke. Some people can work with it but really......really..........REALLY come on now. Don't make the 920 and 928 have 32 Gb then shaft T-mobile with a 16 Gb version. If we only get a 16 Gb one then I'm def buying an I phone like there isn't a doubt in my mind. I love windows phone to the core but this has been a ridiculous amount of shafting to T-Mobile windows phone, first the 710 and no other one then the terribly glitchy, crappy and unsupported by its own maker HTC 8X and the hideous and short lived Lumia 810, and now this childs-play Lumia 510 (which I understand is for those who want a smart phone but not the high end). If this 925 is 16 Gb it'll be iPhone foe cuz I can't stand android, I'll be back to windows one day but for now this shafting has left me too sore to sit down!!!

    I'm really hoping T-Mobile/Nokia surprises us come next Wednesday and give us the complete package.

    If 16GB is really holding you back then you should just go ahead and get the iPhone now, cause you're not really serious about getting this phone. ;)

    Carphone Warehouse in the UK ran a special where they bundled a wireless charger + shell w/ the 925. AT&T similarly bundled a charger with the 920 when it debuted.

    I wonder if (hope) something similar happens w/ T-Mobile and the 925? Would certainly sweeten the deal.

    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...
    Your post is a little bit silly. And that's being polite.

    Unless I'm suffering from mental illness, the lumia 920 was released in November. The 925 started release in May. That's 7 months - hardly a year. Secondly why on earth would you NEED more processing power? Windows phone 8 is buttery smooth. In fact second only to iOS in its lack of stutter or lag.

    The speed of the processor is totally irrelevant if it isn't in conjunction with optimized software. If it isn't then it's like driving a ferrari in a traffic jam - you're not getting home any faster. Samsung's galaxy series should be testament enough to the importance of this.

    I will keep my Lumia 920 and look into the EOS or wait until fall and see what WP8 releases. I am perfectly content with my 920.

    Picked a 925 up today from Phones4U (UK). Delighted with my purchase, wonderful device. I couldn't get a wireless charging case or plate with it, but did get 60 cash in my hand for choosing the phone and tariff I did (Vodafone UK - Unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of internet - 37).

    Really great experience in getting the phone as well, the staff were very knowledgeable (or at least as knowledgeable as I was) and were actively promoting Windows Phone to other customers which is always wonderful to see.

    I'm sure I'll post more impressions over the next few days in other threads, but so far this is the best phone I've ever had by some margin (upgraded from an 800 to a 620 to this). The feel of the device is really perfect for me, slim and light and very fast. I am of course aware of the 1020 announcement on Thursday but I already knew I couldn't afford the extra 10 per month it is likely to cost. I've been dead set on the 925 since it was announced and it has not disappointed me yet.

    I picked up a 521 coming from an iPhone to decide if I want to get a high end Lumia or the new iPhone this fall. I am loving my 521 so far!

    Ok..OK...let's look at things through a bigger picture perspective OK?

    Lumia 920 - For At&t - 32 GB
    Lumia 928 - For Verizon - 32 GB
    Lumia 925 - For T-Mobile - 16 GB

    You know what the message Nokia's sending to T-Mobile users?

    It's this:

    When it comes to WP8 phones, T-Mobile customers (existing and potential) are considered SECOND CLASS CITIZENS!

    I agree wholeheartedly. In fact, T-Mobile didn't mention the 925 in its press event, they still don't have a page for it on their shopping site (they have the Xperia Z, though), they haven't given the MS store any info on it, and every rep I've spoken or chatted with have no idea what the phone is, when it will be launched, or how much it will be. T-Mobile is treating this device like it doesn't really exist or matter.

    I'm buying one because a) I lvoe the look and the abilities of this phone, and b) I want to show them with my wallet that it does matter!

    Is there an effective way that we (potential and existing T-Mobile users) can make a united concerted effort to make our collective demand for a Lumia 925 32GB version heard? I think a collective voice will be more effective than individual scattershot efforts.

    A petition would be ok to start. Also asking on their Twitter, Facebook and other social media accounts would be beneficial.

    What MM247 said BUT let's face reality...T-Mo didn't even mention the 925 during their press conference. I doubt anything short of a full on 1000+ man riot at every T-mo store and outlet demanding a 32GB 925 would have any effect at this point.

    And also Stephen Elop's. Elop/Nokia took the blame for AT&T's horrendous treatment of the 920, maybe he/they will do the same with T-Mobile's treatement of the 925.

    Just bought one at T-Mo as a side-grade to my HTC 8X. The utter lack of storage still makes it inadequate for most media related things, but I was looking for a better camera, better battery life and the Nokia apps.

    Still charging. Took forever to get all my apps downloaded.

    Now, mebbe I take a quick drive to see if the T-mo rep was feeding me a line when he said LTE is available in Nashua.
