    L925 is not eligible for W10M - http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=eAKUcNZt

    If you want W10M you need to use the Insider Program on the slow ring if you want stability.

    If you use Insider on the Release Ring, the same version is fetched as the recent public Upgrade received by these phones (10.0.10586.xxx): Phones Eligible for Windows 10 Mobile Official.

    If your phone is not on the supported list, then 10586.xxx (Threshold) is the end of the line. You may as well use Insider and select Production to un-enroll your phone from Insider, but at least you have W10M. WaaS (Windows as a Service) will deliver future updates within Threshold to you without any Insider access required.

    If your phone is on the eligible list and you go Insider and stay on the Release ring you get the next public version early as Release ring in effect is the RTM. This will deliver the most stable Redstone builds to you earlier than OTA push with minimal risk.

    For right now, Windows Device Recovery Tool is only flashing 8.1 to models that did not launch with 10 so it is the way to revert if you don't care for W10M: How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software?

    I saw some posts like the update will come to Lumia 925 in a second wave or such thing. Are you sure that it won't come?

    as of the latest news that we have, 925 and other models like most of the xx20 series will not get windows 10 mobile officially. Your 925 cannot get windows 10 officially. However you can get windows 10 using the insider program

    There is no 2nd wave scheduled at the moment. Only way currently for the 925 to get Win10m is via the Windows Insider app.

    And the 925 does in fact work well with the build of W10M that is available through the insider program.

    You have no battery life issue?

    You have no battery life issue?
    A few things you can try out:
    • Check settings >system > battery > which apps are using the most energy?
    • Again, in battery section, which apps can run in the background? Can you disable those you don't need? Keep messaging enabled to run in background
    • In battery section, you can also set up battery saver to kick in when the battery reaches a certain percentage. I keep mine on 100% so it's always on battery saver mode
    • In mail app, how often do you have mails to sync? Generally the longer the time period, the less the battery usage
    • What about brightness settings? Is it on high or auto? Auto is better than a fixed setting
    • If you finds that messaging app uses a lot of battery, this could be because it's linked with skype. Go to messaging app, settings and unlink skype
    • In photos app, do you have auto upload of photos enabled? If yes, try to not upload high res photos and videos unless you are charging the phone and on wifi
    • When you use some apps that are not data heavy like whatsapp or mail, you can use a lower network speed like 2G. It's what I do usually. I only use LTE when I have to use 6tag
    • If you're using edge for basic browsing, you could try using UC browser. Not only does it use less data but you can also disable images which means you save even more on data. The less data your phone has to receive, the less the energy used
    • In settings > privacy - check each of those settings to see which apps can use what. For example I can't understand why Word would need to access location info so I disabled that. There might be apps using services that they are not meant to use
    • Finally, keep wifi/cellular off when you don't need to have them on. The toggles in action centre are pretty fast so it doesn't take much time in switching internet on/off
    • Disable auto update of apps, you only update when you are ready and not when you are in need of critical things



    Hope this helps you
