    Hi all, I have received my 925 today (so says my wife who signed for the package), if anyone has any questions post them and I ll check when I get home.

    I live in Northern Ireland, UK BTW and was surprised to find out the phone had been posted already.

    Thanks!

    Well I've had a quick play and I'll give an overview:

    • The screen is very nice, nicer than the 920 and the screen settings work well
    • The clock stays on the screen when locked however it shows if the phone is charging or in silent, it doesn't show any sort of SMS/email notification!?!
    • The back of the phone the model number is 925.4 32GB TypeRM-892
    • The weight difference between the 925 and 920 is very VERY noticable!
    • When going into wifi there is now an option to 'find nearby WiFi' with Data sense


    I haven't really done much else, I'm currently downloading all my apps and will have a play around, if I find anything AMAZING I'll report back.

    Awesome mate, just one question - is there a way to turn off haptic feedback in settings?

    Cheers.

    ps. if you're bored enough to upload a couple of pics that would be good!

    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.

    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.

    Great that Vodafone have embraced Data Sense! Congrats on getting your 925 :D

    I can't help but wonder if EE will allow Data Sense when the update comes...

    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.

    What is the firmware ? (just look settings - about - more info - firmware rev. number) ... I think that OS is still the same, 8.0.10211.204, is it ?
    06-12-2013 04:45 AM
  20. JoJoUK's Avatar
    The firmware is 3040.0000.1322.2002 and the OS version is 8.0.10327.77. It does have Vodafone branding (software only, no physical branding), ie. a Vodafone boot screen. Want to flash generic FW when possible.

    Hello,

    what can you tell us about the battery?

    Does it last longer than the 920? And is the display that much better than the 920's?

    I can now choose between the 920 and the 925. I just love the 920's looks and that it has built-in wireless charge.
    The only thing i might miss is the AMOLED and that maybe the battery lasts longer..

    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.

    Can you please show the Vodaphone branding when you start the phone?
    No problem, here is a pic, it appears first, then the nokia logo and then the blue Windows Phone screen.

    The two screens below show what the wifi settings look like with the new 'find wifi near me' option, the first pic shows the settings and the second pic shows the map with wifi hotspots (haven't really tested it much yet).

    looks slick.

    Was torn this morning about waiting (till the 26th it looks like) for a black sim free, or going with a white sim free that I can get now.

    Think the extra wait might be worth it.....

    Pleased to see you have your 925. Can you tell us what the overall image quality is like compared to the 920, especially with regards to blurred pictures?
