    So I was pretty let down with the announcement that the 925 would debut with ONLY 16gb instead of the standard 32gb all the flagship Lumia devices have gotten. I complained and went back and forth between rather or not I could settle for this one flaw. Finally I had declared that I would instead get a L920 and unlock it for T-Mobile until one thing I hadn't thought of popped in my mind. Carrier compatibility. Sure I could get 4g service where I live on an unlocked L920(I get great coverage on my unlocked HTC Titan), but what about WiFi calling and tethering and other small nuances that make the experience complete? And plus, I would get service truly optimized for the device. So I have concluded that the L925 is definitely sexy and camera worthy enough for me to overlook this one flaw that is the fault of Nokia. Its on MY network and it will be MY next phone. And one way or another I'll survive with 16gb of memory.

    Glad to see you've decided to join the thin & light side ;)

    I'll be getting my device either tomorrow (if MS Store price is the same as TMO price) or Thursday (if it's lower by more than $50). So excited!

    Yes I am excited about it as I think it is the sexiest Lumia model even without all the fun colors. I hope to pick it up Sunday but I will briefly test it out in the T-Mobile store if available tomorrow.

    I manage a T-Mobile in the Dallas area and got a chance to play with one today (and the Xperia Z). It's a stellar device. In my opinion, t's every bit the rival of anything else out as far as style is concerned. It is certainly very light and just looks great. I'll be ordering mine tomorrow.

    I like seeing all the same people posting on the 925 threads. It is like we are all one big 925 family. I can't wait to get mine tomorrow as well.

    You'll love the 925. It's the nicest phone I've ever had. The 920 was nice but the 925 feels much more premium.

    I was looking into the 925 and is it true it doesn't have a microSD card slot? I didn't see it in the description. Maybe someone here can confirm it. Thanks

    Unfortunately it does not, which does suck, but I much prefer using SkyDrive, 100GB for 32 a year yes please

    Well said, RaRa85! That's exactly why I bought the 810 back in November (I was using an unlocked iPhone 4) and why I wanted to get the 925 as well. I have a Rogers 920 right now. I'm kinda disappointed that the Wi-Fi Calling app doesn't work on it. I tried it out last Friday at this bowling alley where I bowl in league during the summer. It was the perfect place to try it out because there's zero service on my phone there but I can connect to their Wi-Fi. But the app didn't work! I've debated back and forth over getting a 925, decided I wanted to stick it out with my 920 because I only just got it in May, but I'll see what happens in the next few months. Might end up snagging the 925 after all.

    Sitting with it in my hand right now, after going through the trouble of re-setting up my authenticator app and everything. This just feels like a quality phone, makes my old 920 feel like a cheap toy. I have never even come close on storage. I am very glad I did it, even more that I switched over to T-Mobile.

    I just had a bad Nokia experience. The 925 I bought was defective. The screen glass was delaminated from the screen. Just hanging on by the bottom half. Bummer. I'll have to exchange on the way home.

    I've had worse cell experiences. I'm mostly bummed because I wanted to play with it this afternoon. Probably for the better because my afternoon filled up with meetings anyway. **** is the only word that comes to mind.

    Yup - you'll do what I used to do before I just said f*ck it and bought an Ativ S - you'll let the "other" storage get up to 5 or 6 gb before getting frustrated and resetting the phone. You'll probably have to do this monthly.

    This phone gets really hot. It is such a nice phone. However, The service is still not better. What I mean is that I've been on mobile with the hd7. I've had a few places where signal is spotty, like in specific target stores, Harris teeters, and most of all, my office. I was hoping the improves antenna of the 925 and the LTE 4G signals would eliminate this problem. I hope tmo gets better soon or I just cannot use their service anymore. But, I love this phone!

    I just went into a restaurant and then another Harris teeter and the signal is worse than it ever was for may hd7. This is very disappointing. Any chance something like this can be improved with a firmware, or is this just mobile...my hd7 had better signals though

    I got mine today and I'm coming from an unlocked Rogers L920...I can honestly say the camera is definitely better on 925. Daytime pics are excellent. The phone is beautiful and the screen is gorgeous. I have to warn you though...i after loading my backup/apps and the OS when starting up, I only 8.5 GB of storage left. I can deal with it...i plan on just using more cloud storage. But just wanted to give you a heads up.
