    Hi guys,

    I own a Lumia 520 on which I've broken the power button trying to unblock it.
    I'm tired of it because of all the loading/resuming screens, and the 512 MB of RAM.
    I live in France and I can get the Lumia 735 for 170 right now and around 190 after the holidays. I can get the lumia 925 for 220 anytime.
    I'm afraid of missing the camera button on the 735, and the 925 is still faster at games, feels more premium and everything.
    What should I do? Get the 735 or the older 925?

    You'll have to decide if you can live with the mere ~12GB onboard storage on the 925. Plus since the 925 was launched in mid 2013, support MIGHT cease early. Battery life on the 73X series is better than the 925

    735 has better performance than the 930, newer, better screen, better ffc, and a potential 136gb of storage etc/

    It's a tough decision to make, the 925 has a superior camera and I don't do selfies at all. On the other hand the 735 is cheaper and has wireless charging but you need the fatboy to make it work anyway. It even has a 40€ refound from Microsoft which makes it virtually 130€ but I don't count on this sort of thing.

    The memory is not an issue for me right now. I have some music on my 520, the apps + maps take me approximately 5 GB with 1.1 GB being Halo Spartan Assault :D
    That leaves me roughly another 5GB for music+photos, that should do it no?

    Even being old the 925 appeals more to me, is faster overall compared to 735/830 and has a better camera so I'll probably go for it.
    Thanks for all of your advices folks!

    925 also supports QI but you have to buy a cover for it CC-3065. And I do not belief the 735 come's with a QI cover so you also have to buy it.

    I know for the 925 but the 735 comes with integrated QI, every cover for it supports QI. But QI is not so important in my opinion.

    As you ddidn't do selfies too much I recommend 925 over 735. Week I visit my local retailer. I was look at 730 and 735 display model. The shape it's fine and camera good too. The screen also nice but the cases were look terrible. Why? Unlike other Lumia I think they made from plastic except for the black one. The black one made from same material as my 625 and it quiet good.

    On the other hand 925 shape is great. Maybe lack of storage and theoretically perform slower than 735 but I don't see much different.

    Even if you decided for 735 please grab black one. Trust me the black one more durable than other colour

    No, he should not "trust you". First of all, minor quibble,the 735 doesn't come in black, it comes in Grey, White, Green, Orange and Blue. Second of all, do you own a 735? How can you comment on the durability of the polycarbonate that all the cases use? I own one and I think the coloured ones feel better than the grey model.

    The 735 model I saw got a case made from plastic not polycarbonate.
    The polycarbonate is material that made my 625 cases. When I saw this 735 it's cases were same as 535 which next to it. I Ask the clerk why the cases isn't as good *** before. And he told me the black color is the only one that have polycarbonate cases. He bring the sample himself showing black color made from polycarbonate despite green from plastic. Idk about other market but better than regret huh?

    Polycarbonate is plastic. Its just Matte vs Glossy polycarbonate that separates the cases

    I dont think there is much of a difference in quality between colors, but rather in "slipperyness". I've seen that between my red 520 vs other colors.

    925 pros - Pureview OIS camera, HAAC chips for audio recording, Glance screen, better GPU, Puremotion HD+ display
    925 cons - 16GB memory, heats up more


    735 pros - Better battery life, better processor, SD card slot, better front camera, better support from MSFT
    735 cons - No Pureview camera, no HAAC chips, no Glance screen

    Personally I like 925 bacause of the design and camera.

    L925 processor Is still faster despite 2 cores, but 735 quad core sometimes takes some benefits with 4 core optimizations.

    I intend to play big games with the new phone so the 925 is the best choice compared to snapdragon 400.
    And main camera with OIS is a huge pro for me.

    The black(grey) one isn't. I prefer the orange one though (I have the cases and swap)

    Just Grey and Orange. And a Green 625 with a black case. And an orange 620 with another orange/yellow case

    735 would be nice though. You can store all your apps in the sd card. So you could possibly have 136 gb storage on the 735 vs 16gb storage on the 925. you have a removable battery and the cpu is more efficient so the battery life will be longer. Try looking for 730/735 gameplay on YouTube of big games for yourself, you'd be surprised at the results

    735. Lightweight, longer battery, SD card etc. Better FFC.

    Camera-wise is probably closer than you think. Optics, sensor technology and algorithms have improved a lot since 925. No OIS being the main negative.
