    Can anyone confirm what happens when you try to charge your phone from a fully drained state (after phone closes itself), please include how old is your phone too. Thanks. Sometimes I rely on my phone for GPS and driving. let's say my phone is dead. I get into my car, plug it into the charger, I have to wait 20 mins for the phone to wake up? what if it's an emergency and I have to call 911. I owned nokia's since 1998, first time owning a nokia like this.
    It is because your using a car charger.

    Not all chargers are the same, some will charge quicker or slower than others.

    Your phone will have to get up to around 4% before it will turn on. It is completely normal. Why do you let your phone run out before plugging it in?

    It will be the same if you use a bad wall charger, or plug it into your laptop or even if you use a poor quality cable with your nokia wall charger.

    Please read the previous posts, it's half an hr using the wall charger that comes with the lumia 925!
    using my first 925, it would turn on within a couple of minutes. I recently got my 3rd 925, possibly refurbished, now it takes almost half an hour.
    I know about car chargers. that's not the point.

    Can you quote your post where you said it was from a wall charger please?

    I'm sure you do know about car chargers, but do you also know that you can plug your phone in to charge it BEFORE it runs out.

    Well, I suspect you'll run out of juice eventually, and then remember to bring one next time. 😊

    Seriously though, weird problem, I'd take it back.

    Obakir, everytime the battery voltage drops below a dangerous level, the system will prevent you from using the phone until it gets to a safer voltage again. This is to prevent the charge to falling under an unrecoverable limit in wich you'll have to replace your battery!! (Lithium batteries die when over discharged). This happens in new and old batteries as well. I've been in that situation more than once, after discharging it to the top. It's PERFECTLY NORMAL, and the owners manual explains it as well.

    DON'T use your phone until it dies. Charge it before it gets to 10% of battery charge if you can. Hard-discharging it is not healthy to your battery and it will reduce it's product life and charge cycles.

    Discharging your phone may be a threat to security as you said. So there you go, one more reason to NOT fully discharge it.

    Enjoy your phone and stop worrying about it!

    Every so often my screen will go mega big. Only way for me to go back to normal size is to do a restart on the phone. Is anyone else having this issue?

    I've experienced this situation only once, when I was playing a game when I got a call. After I ended the call and for the screen to change back to the game, the image didn't fit the screen size anymore. Locking/unlocking wouldn't do anything, so I had to go to the home screen (Windows button) and then back to the game (back button) so the image of the game would fit the screen again.

    glance screen not working properly after black update

  11. mjrtoo's Avatar
    It seems that after black, well, it never happened before the black update not even the GDR3 update I did before that, the volume control very occasionally does not affect the audio level at all. You can ramp it up and down and nothing happens, the numbers change, but the volume does not. Soft reset the phone and it works again.

    Anyone else?

    Just got mine a few days ago. These are the issues I've noticed so far:

    - The device heats up like a damn frying pan at the top part with general/light use (Browsing, Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp Chat).
    - Battery life is dismal (most probably caused by the heating issue).
    - The device loses signal when left unattended causing missed calls and messages. (I have to restart it or turn flight mode on/off to get back the signal)
    - The calender on month view doesn't display appointments/to-do's.

    Thats it so far. Will post more as they occur. (Im sure they will)

    The heat development is quite normal (at least to a certain level). If you play games with 3D graphics or use the internet a lot, the area next to the camera will get pretty warm. It should be of no concern, plus: other phones experience this too (had this with both my SGS+ (where also the display would get pretty hot) and Nexus S).

    The battery life should improve over the first few charging cycles. Also it depends on the quality of your providers network connectivity and your wifi router. Bad connectivity can drain a battery in no time.

    This shouldn't be normal. You can try a soft-reset/hard reset (careful, you lose every data on your phone when you perform a hard reset) or get a replacement from your provider/retail shop.

    This feature might be disabled. Go to your calendar, settings and scroll down to the bottom. There are two options you can check/uncheck and the first one determines if to-dos will be shown in your calendar (also check if the right calendars are displayed; in case you have more than one account with calendar-support, like Hotmail/Outlook, MS account,...).


    If you are sure that there will be more problems, it looks like you're already unsatisfied with your phone. Regarding the short time you own it you could give it back and get a different model. Or stick with it and give it a chance ;-)

    Mine's just gone back for the third time to O2. Yay. First time was back in August, as the speaker in the earpiece stopped working. Second time was early February, as the phone was being awkward about connecting to the network. This third time is the for same issue, as they haven't sorted it. I've had a new SIM and it works just fine in my old HTC Desire.

    If it's still not fixed, I see a Sony Z1 Compact on the horizon...

    It literally gets hot, not warm. I don't play 3d games on my phone. Just normal phone stuff ie. text, call, social, mail etc. Tasks
    I consider 'light' as I said. Honestly, those are things you'd expect it to handle easily (without burning my hands).

    I've owned a lot of Nokia phones but I've only ever been unsatisfied with their higher end models (smart phones), surprisingly. They always have nagging problems that one wouldn't expect from such pricey devices. Some issues even cut across through different models I've owned, like the heating up and the battery life thing. It's almost as if they never learn or don't care enough to do anything about it.

    Maybe Nokia weren't cut out to make smartphones successfully. They should consider making cameras and focus on low end dumb phones instead because that seems like what they're really good at.

    Hi guys, found this forums looking for people with the same issues im having. These are mine:

    1) overheating issue right of the camera module. Not warm, hot. It gets hot even when not running apps in the back, just lying in the table.

    2) creaking, clicking noise,in the plastic back. (the worst for me) . I get reminded the cheap phone I bought everytime I pick it up and hear those sounds coming from the back (they are that loud)

    3) raised glass in top right cornet. If i push it a little it gets flush with the bezel for a while. But pops out again after a short time.

    4) very poor battery life. No bt, no 3g, minimum apps allowed in the bg. I have to plug this thing twice a day.

    5) poor reception. In or out, 2g or 3g, 4 bars max, sometimes no signal at all, when with my other phones I got at least 3.

    i think there may be other issues bothering me but these are the ones bugging me the most.

    hardware revision: 1.0.0.0 ( shocker!)

    Hello guys

    I dont know if this is a real problem but I guess it is so. My previous phone was Lumia 800. Now I got new Lumia925 but I noticed it does not register swipes sometimes. Its really hard to explain, I would rather show you (will try to take it on video). It happens when I use "back" button or unlock the phone and I immediately want to swipe display fast. It does not register that swipe. I must wait one second, second a half before I can swipe. Its really annoying and I cant believe that this phone requires such slow reaction when my Lumia 800 never done this before. Any help?

    Here is a video of my problem:

    I've had my Lumia 925 since about August of 2013. I love my phone. Everything works great on it. I have no software issues, and for the most part - no hardware issues. That being said, I have noticed within the last week or two - the gorilla glass is starting to pop out in the upper left corner of my device and slightly all across the top. At times there is enough separation that I an actually fit my finger nail under the glass. I can press firmly on the glass and push it back down into place, and it will stay that way for just a short time before it starts lifting again. There is nothing wrong with my display as far as touch sensitivity, pixels, etc. It is not cracked or scratched. I'm just annoyed that it seems to be coming unglued (if that's the correct term).

    I would go back to your mobile provider and do a warranty exchange for it, like when it pops out show them
