    I'm getting one tomorrow! I'm switching from an iPhone 5, and I'm still sort of having doubts. But I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna love my WP8!
    I reckon you will love the 925 and its Live Tiles. Make sure you check out the Nokia Pro cam application which is one of my all time favourite applications.

    The Z10 is very nice to hold in the hand. It has this rubber-like back - it's nit possible to drop it. In contrast to that IMHO the 925 is very slippy.

    I would choose 920 again over 925 because of the higher memory, much better speaker and call audio quality

    Hi! Yes, I'm loving mine! I doubt I'm going to miss my iPhone 5, haha. This phone is really sexy and I love how the WP8 works.

    That's good hear. I also love the WP8 UI and think it's the best UI I've ever used.

    Ditto. It's personalized, but not really that much, just right. :) I love how fluid the UI is.

    I just got mine on Thursday and I must say it is a joy to use! It's beautiful, intuitive and it's the first time I step into the Windows Phone platform.
    Actually I'm a power user and have Android and iOS as well, but they start to become pale, pure imitations and android sure gives me tons of lag (frustrating).

    I bought the unlocked version, (I do work at Vodafone and could have gone for the 32GB, but storage isn't a problem for me) and also do my best to recommend Windows Phone to everyone. Guess what - my favourite system so far. And phone. Love them! :D

    I'm Rick, cheers everyone.

    Hi Rick, and welcome to the world of Windows Phone. I'm glad you are loving the experience so far and couldn't agree more with your sentiments.
    It makes a nice change to read a positive post instead of the usual negative ones moaning about the little things their Windows Phones can't do but their old Symbian phones could.
    Hopefully you will stick around and contribute to the forums. This forum and site is the best around in my humble opinion.

    @WoezelGummage well thank you :)

    I'll make sure to keep updated with the latest WP news with this site only (and sometimes wmpoweruser.com). Heck I even read WPCentral for like a year and only got into Windows Phone now (the site is great and also made me aware of apps, ecosystem, updates, etc). I'll also participate as much as I can in the forums, and help whenever it's in my reach.
    It's great to see a big community here, as I'm getting tired (just like you mentioned) of all the bashing and negative comments about Windows Phone everywhere on the Internet. I mean, it's an ultra-fluid OS (I just stare at the screen and drool all over the smooth animations) and it has the perfect ecosystem for me, as I use Outlook, Office alot (& Xbox). So I decided to give it a go and now it will be Android/iOS no more, no regrets here.

    And sorry guys for the bit-off-topic up here^. As for the Lumia 925, great slim body, I got the black version and it still looks different and sexy. People are always amazed by the screen when they see it and are just like "What phone is that? Is that a Lumia?!!!". I also love the fact that I didn't even install facebook because the People Hub just "replaces" it.

    So yeah, I'm loving it, just the battery is not lasting as *much* as I wanted, but I've been giving it moderate to heavy usage. Also people around here say in about a week battery gets better/settles down? (I also have almost everything turned off so I can get extra juice to take pictures with that Pureview camera)

    Glad to hear that Rick. I must say that the integrated Facebook feature is a hundred times more fluid in operation than the dedicated Facebook app for Android. Okay, it might not have all the bells and whistles of the dedicated app but it is a lot better to use.

    Your battery should settle down after a while but overall battery performance isn't stellar in Windows Phone, well at least not on my 920 or 1020. Mind you, I do tend to spend a fair amount of time tinkering about with them so I don't have anything to grumble about really.

    If the screen on your 925 is anything like the screen on my 1020 then I have to agree that it's stunning to say the least. :D

    I was sure but now am Undecided... Is Daniel Rubino's comparison with the iPhone 5S camera True?
    Although I like the lowlight camera feature and the OIS feature wasn't compared/tested vs. the 5S.

    Can the camera be inferior compared to the iPhone 5S?

    ???

    The short answer is yes. Who cares? They are both GREAT cameras. If you're happy with it, then it doesn't matter.

    On the cusp of moving to Windows Phone from my BlackBerry 9700 & 9900 that I've had over the last 4 years.

    My BB9900 only has 8Gb and I've never found that a problem. A lot of the negative posts here are critical of the 925 coming with only 16Gb (apart from one or 2 providers). Is this really an issue, or just perceived to be one? Is 32Gb really necessary as opposed to desirable? Just how much is store on the phone itself?

    2 GB are immediately taken up by the OS. Then there is the issue with the "others" folder taking up Gigabytes of space. Then after formatting you are not left with that much available storage.
    The biggest problem is the lack of expandable storage with the onboard storage being used up quite quickly with taking pictures and shooting videos and of course installing applications and games.

    Regarding the 16GB space, I don't mind since the Music I take with me only takes around 3GB (My Metal Collection \m/ :))

    So my question now is how is the Music Sound Quality?

    Just received my Nokia 925 last Friday and I LOVING it. Came from IOS to Android and now WP8. The OS is really smooth and responsive. People always complain about not enough apps, but I was able to download all apps I had on my previous phones. If there is no specific app available, there is usually an alternative client like Metrotube. Even better than Youtube and you can download videos! So I guess I am not like other people who needs 800,000+ apps installed on my smartphones. I just needed really good quality ones that I actually use. The build quality is surprisingly, in my opinion, better than the plastic galaxy and even Iphone 5S and Maybe HTC. Very solid feeling. By the way I was able to sell my galaxy S4 for $550 and bought BRAND NEW Nokia 925 for $320. So yeah, pretty happy about that to.
