    GDR3 update is supposed to allow 1080P Support for the screens correct? So. I don't know. If the 925 is cheap, I may get it until November.

    Count me in for picking up a couple 925's on T-Mobile. Do we actually know this phone is coming in June in the US? The "hands-on" videos have made mention of the software not being finalized. It is almost June which concerns me a bit.

    The June launch is only confirmed for Europe, unfortunately. T-mobile is said to get the device "after the initial launch", which leaves me wondering how long we'll have to wait for this device.

    what also concerns me is no mention of it at the FCC with 1700 MHz. To me, this means much work remains. I'd rather be a pessimist and surprised than a disappointed optimist. I guess we're looking at the *** end of June for release?

    ^ intriguing ...

    "Photographs however can only be taken at a maximum of 34 megapixels – just like the case was with the PureView 808"

    Wrong..

    38Mpix in 4:3 and 34Mpix in 16:9 .. and the magic happens in Pureview mode, which is 5/8Mpix.

    Regardless, if its 34 in 16:9 its pretty certain that it will be the HES9 sensor :)

    Are the current screen hardwares in the 92X capable of 1080P display after the software upgrade? I do not think so!

    I also would like stereo video recording, if EOS gets that, then I will wait, but I have no way of knowing for sure until it's released......damn

    That is not a hardware limitation in the 928/925/920.. they all have the necessary hardware to record sound in stereo, but the software is not allowing that at the moment. So as soon as Microsoft unlocks the functionality on one model, they will all get it.. or at least the ones that have more than one HAAC mic.


    Also, let's hope that they can bring the kbps count over 100 ... the phase 1 system is capable of over 2000kpbs/losless with 3rd party software, and 256kpbs during video recording.

    Stereo does sound better.. those extra mics should be exploited.

    Yeah, I really don't get why stereo is not supported in Windows Phone 8, when it's supported in 7.5/7.8 ?

    If you have the money, get 925 and decide what to keep when EOS is out (if at all as its just a rumor now)

    So how do people feel about the 925 now that more leaks of the EOS have emerged? The video of the EOS with mechanical focus makes me very tempted to wait for it.

    On the other hand I'm sure it will be an expensive phone, plus it means waiting longer to eventually get it.

    I guess since I have a proper camera I will lean towards a 925 (its camera is not too shabby itself as well).

    I'm just not serious enough about photography to get the EOS. The 925 will fill my needs nicely in a slimmer package.

    EOS looks like an amazing device though! I hope it sells very well.

    Seems the EOS will be heavier and thicker than 925, I think I will buy the 925, I'm just waiting for a SIM Free 32GB version :)

    Interesting, sounds like maybe it's designed to compete with Samsung's Android powered Galaxy Camera line? If that's the case, and it has a much higher price than the 925, I'm probably going that way too. I want a better camera than the horrid 5mp "thing" that is my current Galaxy nexus but I do have a DSLR with lenses for when I'm really out taking photos. In my phone I just want something that could be considered decent for "point & shoot" style stuff without breaking the bank.

    Making it all metal, combining it with by far largest mobile phone sensor and topping it with wireless charging will make the device damn heavy. If some people thought Lumia 920 was heavy and it became a thing...

    Also depending on what you mean by smooth, the back just can't be smooth on EOS like on 920. On 808 PureView the camera protrudes around 5mm from the body of the phone.

    If the phone is built entirely of metal, wouldn't wireless charging be highly hazardous??

    EOS = thicker 925 with a bigger camera bump. ;)
