    I've had my 920 since June of 2013 but till this day I think the 925 is the best looking Windows phone design that Nokia released. Daniel was right on when he said in an article last year that a successor to that design is needed. Or something like that.

    If the 925 had built in Qi wireless like the 920 and storage was at least 32 GB, I would have picked one up a long time ago!

    I had the chance to play around with the LG G3 recently and I think it has a great design. It was thin and light and the curved beveled edges reminded me of the 925. I'd love a successor to the 920/925 with a design like the G3. 5.5" screen, 32 GB internal storage, SD card, removable back and battery, 3 GB ram, big camera, etc..

    I agree. The 925 is lovely. I have moved on to a 930 but I still swap the sim out every now and then to give my 925 a run out. I actually love it with the charging shell on (I got red and yellow) - just feels 'right' in my hand. Nothing else has beats that yet. 930 is great too and performance is awesome it just doesn't feel as good in hand.

    Well TBH I haven't found a single WP as complete as the 920, one of the best made so far. I like the 920's form factor and build quality better than the 925. Why? Because it never ages. Minor scuffs and marks are clearly visible on the metallic sides of the 925 while on the 920..pfff. A better phone would have been the 925 w/ built in wireless charging and 32 GB internal then yeah...may be..it could have bested the 920 but that ain't happening. IMO the 920 should take the best overall device award for now :)

    Had a few people ask about the 925 recently.
    Folks who see and hold the phone are somewhat positively surprised by the design and size.
    Kind of strange how many people who dare to comment think it's a Samsung.

    I bought the 925 intending to Jump! after 6 months to something newer, better, faster... I've had it over a year now, and the only device I would even consider right now, is the M8-Windows, but I just can't justify the cost compared to the 925. It's still solid, fast enough, I have a case on it, so it's not all scuffed up.

    I use Glance pretty heavily, so a 930 as an upgrade isn't really good (plus it's not t-mobile wifi compatible), and the m8 I'm still not convinced about the camera, especially with lack of shutter button.

    Z1/Z1s does have a fantastic camera. Even though I use a LUmia 930 now, I do miss the image quality produced by the fantastic Sony sensor. Aport from that, the rest of the phone, ie: Android, was rubbish.

    I know that feel. I absolutely love my 925. I got it last year and it was either this or the 920, and I opted to sacrifice the memory and durability for looks and the AMOLED display. This phone is perfection. It seems a little slower now with 8.1 but if MS resolves the resuming and loading screens it will be great once again. It does everything I need.

    I don't want the 930 because of the usual complaints of battery life and heating (and it's generally hot where I live) so it seems like a bad idea to me, even though I'm sure the display and camera are great.

    I'm not sure about the 830 either. While it's the only Lumia that matches the 925 in terms of looks and design, I'm wary about the camera. It has a smaller sensor AND more MP than 925, so it seems a step downwards for me.

    I think the only phone which "is better" would be the 929/930. Both of which are handicapped on T-mobile/AT&T sadly

    Bumping because:

    We were at dinner this evening and a girl at the bar was asking about my phone.
    My beloved surprisingly started off about my 925 as my "real wife"

    I had to inform the attractive gal that the phone I had would probably be hard to get.
    Really didn't want to go on and on much looking like a screwball nerd-o...

    Hopefully this was the beginning of a new Microsoft relationship.
