    I really like Lumia 925, I want a thin design with a good camera, should I just buy it next month or should I wait for EOS, which should be announced in the summer?

    Personally, I would wait for the official announcement of "Eos" and then decide which phone suits me best.

    Yeah, but think of it, announced in the summer, it will not be available to buy before sometime in the fall or winter even.....that's a long time to wait.

    I still think EOS will need GDR3 update and so come somewhere in Q4. Nokia World (taking place somewhere around September) would once again be perfect place to announce new flagship.

    That said I'm in a same trouble as you. I will likely end up buying EOS anyways, but i'm just wondering will I get Lumia 925 while I wait.

    we don't know for sure if there'll ever be an EOS model. It's rumours and speculations....

    I'd say go for the 925. The camera quality looks awesome!

    And if Nokia stays with their exclusive deal with ATT in the US, does that mean Verizon and T-Mobile will always be 6 months late with a variant?

    I always say, the sooner you upgrade your phone, the sooner you can upgrade to the next one. VZN and ATT are pretty good about giving early upgrades to their customers. ATT always allows me to upgrade after 18 months.

    I'm going to assume the OP is either a T-Mobile (or ATT??) customer. Lumia 925 will be the latest and greatest when it's available in a few more weeks. In that sense, get that. I know I don't like when I get something and then regret it later because I didn't wait for the next release - I didn't react that way when I got my iPhone 4 in summer 2011 and I'm not reacting that way now, having just gotten a Lumia 920 the other week.

    For my wife - she wants a thin light phone with a good camera - the Lumia 925 will work for her (she may be interested in the 928 for its Xenon flash capability and with Amber update...the edge may goto the 928...)
    For me - i value the camera performance more than the physical size/thickness. I own a Nokia N8 and the Nokia Pureview 808. I want an upgrade from the 808... So i will wait for the EOS.

    You dont know if EOS is coming at all. Just buy now, you can sell it afterwards.

    But if he already owns N8 and 808PV, why should he upgrade to anything else than something like the EOS is rumored to be? If he indeed appreciates the camera performance you can't really get better than N8, not to talk about 808PV.

    if he wants to try WP he can buy 520 and use it parallel with 808

    EOS will not come before 2014 and who knows how it will look&work even then

    I'm definitely getting it. I want something at least on par with the 920 for T-Mobile.

    If I can find a 32GB I might give the 925 a go. Ideally I would love the EOS though. Have been thinking of getting a HTC one as well interested to see how well it competes with my 920.

    I'm waiting for EOS, since I'm not currently eligible for an upgrade. I will probably be eligible for an upgrade around the time that EOS is released.

    925 as an appetizer. EoS will be the main course, when available. I can't wait for either devices.

    For Me, EOS for sure. Personally I like the metal on the catwalk but all in all I don't think think it looks great, and the lack of built in wireless charging is a deal breaker. Please Nokia, make the EOS smooth and beautiful like the 920 and made entirely from metal (or almost), and build in wireless charging, that's all I want.

    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.

    Actually there's a new rumor from Mary Jo about EOS being available this summer. I'm thinking it'll be later this year but if it's true, it's more likely to be announced around summer then sold fall/winter.

    Personally I'm excited about both the 925 & EOS. Going to be a great year from NokNok.

    Sooooo...you don't think Nokia will ever make another phone? The EOS WILL be Nokia's next flagship. Now, the specs are still rumors and speculation, and will it be what they SAY it should be (mainly, 41MP)? That is the part about which we have no idea.

    I agree with those that are saying the poll depends on what you currently have! If you have an L920, there is no need to upgrade, just wait it out!

    i wont be selling any of my devices.
    They both work and are useful..
    I cant see Nokia not moving forward with sensor improvements and innovations - its a NOKIA tradition. I find it very hard to sit and listen to people say that Nokia is "kjust now catching up to apple and its iPhone5" without screaming at them! :)
    Nokia is the established cameraphone leader in my opinion; with their investment in graphene and sensor technology, i think we will see something in 2014 that will knock our socks off and may not even require much more of a hump than the 925 :)

    ok, dont get excited about the photo in this article because its an earlier representation and the device that was actually "seen" and reported on, was thinner than the 920 and lighter!
    New report of 808/920 hybrid.
    Report of Nokia EOS encounter describes Lumia 920 / 808 hybrid - GSMArena.com news
    Sounds interesting!!!

    I also think EOS will be heavier and thicker than 925, so if that's a problem, then I shouldn't wait.

    I would wait for the EOS and see what that brings. But you can always get the 925 and sell it once the EOS comes out.. just to try out WP and see how that goes.

    The EOS is coming for sure.. I am even willing to believe the rumor that there is one EOS based on current gen specs, and one based on next gen (1080p/quad core/faster RAM) ..

    Also, if the rumors are true, its should be better than the 808.

    But if he already owns N8 and 808PV, why should he upgrade to anything else than something like the EOS is rumored to be? If he indeed appreciates the camera performance you can't really get better than N8, not to talk about 808PV.
    I have an 808 and find absolutely no reason to upgrade to a newer phone.. I got the iPhone 5 to try, and since the camera is very important to me, it felt more like a downgrade than an upgrade. I don't see how that would be any different with any of the Lumia devices.

    I am set until someone comes up with a better camera, or at least gets on par with the 808.

    . Please Nokia, make the EOS smooth and beautiful like the 920 and made entirely from metal (or almost), and build in wireless charging, that's all I want.
    Actually, I am hoping its the same (or improved) grippy ceramic stuff they used on the phase 1 device

    Another problem is that I would have to import the 925, because it won't be released before 4th quarter in Denmark, by that time EOS may already be available.
