    I got black Lumia 925 unlocked from Vodafone Germany 32 GB... I noticed from the first moment that the brightness for the touch buttons is very very low compared to 920 and the light is not uniformly distributed over each button... also the color of the light look like yellow/orange/red combination, sorry its hard to describe the color precisely...
    I have a Lumia 920 also and it has much much better brightness even though my 920 button has the yellow tint problem... My 925 button are yellow to orange color... The brightness very very low...

    Another problem the right side of screen a little bit yellow compared to the left side when looking at the keyboard.. Also another issue which known for most Samsung AMOLED screens, if you go to completely dark room and open a black photo on the screen (you can use app called pixel doctor to check) you will notice black annoying dots darker than the rest of the screen... Mine has 7 main dots..

    Is this normal? How yours looks like? Just wondering how many people has these problems...

    UPDATE: I have another problem described below... Blurry text while scrolling....
    Noticed that my lumia 925 has a blurry text while scrolling, specially when scrolling white text over black background or black text over white background... also noticed some blurry when scrolling tiles on the home screen, this blurry occurred around the black horizontal lines separating the tiles.... compared the scrolling with the 920 and there is a huge difference...
    I read that some of the galaxy S4 units has this problem and that this problem related to Samsung AMOLED screens, and you know the lumia 925 has a Samsung AMOLED screen.
    Any one has these issues? let me know in comments please..
    On my Lumia 925 I got problem here about blurry text when scrolling. Hope Nokia find a solution for that soon :(

    I have had my 925 for 8 days and this afternoon it turned itself off and never recovered. I had just received a phone call and an appointment reminder popped up. I looked back at it a minute or so later and it looked like it was re-booting. It was at the T-Mobile screen and then it went black. I wasn't able to boot it back up.
    I took it to the T-Mobile store on the way home from work and they couldn't get it to boot up, so they gave me a new one.
    I'll just chalk it up to a faulty unit, but it still makes me a little nervous.
    I had the same issue. I was sitting at my desk and a popup from the My T-Mobile app came up and said something like I haven't restarted my phone in a while and that I should to keep peek performance. Didn't think anything about and dismissed the message. That evening I had my phone plugged in at my desk listening to some music and then the music stopped and the phone just rebooted. It stuck at the T-Mobile logo. I did the volume down/power button hold to reboot and it rebooted. Then about a hour later with the phone idle not doing anything it did the same thing. I was able to reboot the phone attain.

    I though it was the "Battery" app I installed so I uninstalled to test. The phone made it though the night but the next evening I pulled the phone out of my pocket and the T-Mobile splash screen was stuck again. This time the reboot via the volume/power buttons only showed the battery graphic and the animated plug in. So I plugged it in waited about a hour and the phone booted but only displayed the blue background of the windows phone logo screen.

    I forced a reboot again and got the battery graphic but even being plugged in it gave the indication it wasn't plugged in. Then I forced the reboot again and got the windows 8 insert media message. So at this point it looked like defective hardware.

    T-Mobile did a nice job of just swapping the phone but I worried about the quality now....this is the second replacement I had of the 925.

    Phone discharged abnormally fast after lasting 25 plus hours on a charge. So I left it charging for a few hours. Then it seemed like my issue was still going on. So I turned off the phone and back on again an I gained back 5%. Looks like my issue is resolved now, no biggie.

    Sometime after unplugging the charger / and getting to work this morning ( 1 hr time gap) mine went to a black screen and was completely unresponsive. I had to do a soft reset and then it worked again. Another problem... im starting to loose confidence in this model...

    Did a bunch of soft resets lately, however I still love the phone and I believe they are going to fix these annoying bugs. I have wiped the phone, updated to 3047.0000.1326.2001.

    Got another one from another supplier and it is working fine, the back plate is very solid this time around with no "pressing" issues (first time was astonishingly squashy for a near 500 phone). Overall, it's a great phone, superb screen, solid, feels great, fast, good camera...etc etc etc

    I just got my 925 from Vodafone last week (32GB black) and loving it so far.

    Only problem is that I've loaded about 22GB of music onto it and when I go to Music + Video and choose to play a song - the music starts playing fine, but the screen becomes completely unresponsive for about a full minute. Odd and mildly annoying - can't seem to figure out why it's doing it though.

    I used to have a similar error on my HTC 8x, but I never have it now on my 925. The only real difference is that I turned off Xbox music cloud collection in the Xbox music settings.im not sure if that's really what did it, but worth a shot. :)

    I encounter one FM radio issue these days. When this internal app starts, the sound will frustrate and the voice sounds glitch meanwhile and finally stop working, then I have to click "pause" button and "resume play" to fix this defect, but it will appear soon or later...I really cannot understand how it behave like this, it looks has something to do with app instead of earphone or external environment.

    Have a T-Mobile 925 and it loses signal every so often and shows no service on the screen. Also having troubles with sending MMS messages, takes about 10-15 tries before it will send.

    Try turning Wi-fi calling off. I have heard about it causing issues with mms.

    My Lumia 925 seems to be rebooting 3 or 4 times per week. I'll randomly pick it up and press the button to see the lock screen, and the screen will stay black. Only way to turn it on is by completing a soft reset.

    I know 920 had the same problem, so I hope an update will be released ASAP to get this matter resolved!

    Its not sounding like I'll b abandoning my 820 anytime soon as I'm hearing little complaints like this alot!! That's MS fault as there's nothing wrong with the hardware
    first off, 500MB is nothing. If you read the article explaining what the space is used for than you'd understand. Its supposed to be there. And its supposed to go up and down. But when it exceeds maybe 1GB than I would assume its an error. The space is used for making the OS faster. For multitasking and such.
    As for getting a new phone, I have the 925 and its absolutely amazing. Depending on carrier, 928 and 920 are fine as well considering there relatives and same Gen. My two cents.

    Gorilla glass seems to vary quite a bit in hardness. My wife's 8x was like plastic; fine scratches were everywhere. My 810 and 720 were really tough. I couldn't find a scratch on them. It makes we wonder if corning sells different grades of GG, perhaps some are age hardened or otherwise treated. I dunno.

    Regarding the quality of the 925 bodies. I'm on my third. The screen on the first was literally falling off. The screen in the second one was uneven in the housing. The third one they offered showed warpage and large gaps in the white plastic. Fourth one was good.
    that's pretty funny to be honest. Mine was good from the start. Getting the insurance just in case though.

    My 925 was off today same time as I discovered it last time in a non functional state. I tried soft resetting it, but it turns on and start booting then has a blue screen and either stays on that blue screen for a while or quickly turns off. I cant seem to do a soft reset, because if I hold down the power and volume down button it just tries starting, then turns off, tries starting then turns off. Since it agrees to try to start it appears you cant soft reset it... can only soft reset if it purely will not start / is totally unresponsive?

    This phones is going to give windows phone a horrible name. I never believed in that "nokia" quality, I think it always was a myth.

    So I've been waiting like a month for the black color to be released, and the more I look into this phone the more I get a little leery. The hardware seems to be a big change for Nokia and I feel the phone may need 6 months for the production line to work out the kinks.

    My question for people with the phone is are any of them working fully with no issues..and the owners have had them more than a week or 2?

    I would also like to know this. Good question. 2 weeks seems to be the timeframe issues occur.

    Well, i think nothing is without issues. So question more or less is, what do you mean issue is. This phone of course has some issues, true. As any other phone. From my point of view, of course "stupid phones" were much more reliable then current "smart phones". Thats also true. But doesnt mean i would buy the other phone. I have small issues, but no real issue, that would lead to not to buy the device.

    I never turn on Wi-Fi calling. Its really weird cuz my 810 had the same problem and my daughters 521. Think Nokia must use bad Chips or something as it will randomly lose signal in different places here in town.

    Ok, here is a question for 925 owners on T-mobile US. Has wi-fi calling worked for you? If you have it set for wi-fi preferred and you're connected to wi-fi, does your phone consistently remain in wi-fi calling mode?

    My 925 only shows that it is in wi-fi calling mode once in a great while even though it's consistently connected to wi-fi. Even if there is no cellular service and its connected to wi-fi, it may not switch to wi-fi calling and allow me to make a call.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Have you resolved it and if so how?
