    I never used my camera on the 920 as all images were blurry (except for close up pics), so far no probs on the 925. The smart cam lense looks interesting but haven't got a chance to use it yet.

    EDIT: Did a quick test with the smart cam, it works really well (was able to pick between the best face on a person). Will test more!

    they're selling it now on Clove, but only the white version.

    Waiting for the black myself.....currently fastest way to get it is at carphonewarehouse on the 26th. Hoping that changes as off to Vegas for the first time soon and want it for that!

    Sure, the product code is 0595700.

    EDIT: Noticed a bug, the phone keeps resetting to volume level 13, no matter what I set it too it will go back to the level 13... odd.
    Should be 059S700 (typo?)

    BTW: Even it's a contract phone which aren't locked normally, this ones are. Network lock to Vodafone UK

    Yeah but our Vodafone is actually a different company, owned by VHA, and they don't care about Windows Phone. I recon We'll get nothing till the EOS.
    Really? That sucks :(

    We only get the Lumia 720, Lumia 820 and the HTC 8x.

    Is the sleeping screen feature on the L925?

    Battery savings .. too much of it can be an overkill
    No, it will certainly not. In the late Symbian days, the sleeping screen can even do periodic tri color picture refresh. And those phones still last at least a day and a half!

    Yeeeep, Telstra are the ones who are really pushing windows phone and I bet they'll get all the flagships (925, EOS) first (or maybe like the 920, be the exclusive carrier foreverrrrr)
    At least vodafone cares a LITTLE bit more than optus though. Think they just have the 8S and the 820.

    Yeah, you're right, Optus has the 8s and the 820.

    I'm sticking with Voadfone because Telstra is too expensive for me.

    Hi Jojo, just one thing, is there an option to disable the vibrate on the capacitive buttons?

    Hi Paddy,

    No there doesnt seem to be any options to turn off vibrate on the buttons.

    Sorry to bombard with questions Jojo (i'm just sitting on a pre-order at the mo) - how pronounced does that lens jut out at the back of the phone? is it minimal or is there any annoyance to it? I.e. would you feel comfortable putting it back-down onto a table without fear of damaging the lens?

    Yeah that's actually a bug that was around back in the lumia 800 days. I'm not sure it was present on the 920 so that's interesting that it's back. Hopefully it will be sorted (like the 800 was) with a software update.
    Can you put it on silent? Does that work? Or does it still revert to vol 13?

    Can't wait for my upgrade on July 1st. Will go straight to Voda and get my 32GB model.

    FYI for people buying new contracts, and you are shopping online, go to topcashback or somesuch website. Free money!

    the lense is set back very slightly into the bump (which sits out less than 1mn) so I have no problems it sitting on the table.

    It doesn't seem to revert to 13 while on vibrate, only when ring + vibrate is selected (and not all the time either).

    cheers mate. Also not sure if you saw my earlier post but that volume 13 thing is something I used to have with my lumia 800 - they eventually put out a software update for it if I remember so I'm sure they'll do the same

    That's wierd. It's not a deal breaker, but it's going to be annoying if it's not fixed by the time I buy.

    On a semi related topic is it possible to set custom text notification sounds?

    I realise there seems to be a noticeable size difference between the 925 and 920... But i have never ever thought the 920 is heavy! I actually prefer the size, compared to say an iphone 5 for example.

    No, looks like you can only choose from a pre defined list.

    Have you had any random reboots? This uses the same components as my seemingly drunken Rogers 920 so would be interesting to see if the 925 has the same problem. Thanks

    I thought the 920 was just at the limit however after using the 925 for a day or so I couldn't go back, the 920 feels like a brick now in comparison!

    The battery life is pretty much the same as far as I can tell but I've only had it for around 24 hours. I did find my 920 battery seamed to get better over time so it may be too early to confirm for the 925.

    The AMOLED screen is much nicer than the LCD, I liked the 920 screen and never had an issue but the 925 is so much nicer to look at (I was surprised at how much nicer it is). You can mess about with the contrast settings to make the colours less saturated which is great.

    The weight was a big issue for me and I would pic the 925 each time hands down, as for wireless charging it wasn't an issue for me as I never used it.

    I think the 920 is a nicer phone to look at however though the 925 is a better phone overall.
    Thank you!

    I now chose the 925 (for only 99 within a contract), think it's the better choice for me now. Even if not, I'm gonna sell it on eBay and get the 920 (it's only 360 now!) and still will have made a good deal.

    The 920 is the same weight as HTC Arrive, which has a physical keyboard. After using a Focus 2 for a few weeks it's hard to go back to the weight of the Arrive.
