    If my my personal phone NL 925 is not a Windows Phone flagship than what the hell is it.

    It does everything better than my work iPhone 5s that's is given to us by our company.

    What do you say?

    IPhone is a big name for some peeps because of app store , made by apple. I wont say I hate iPhones , they are great but if you look at the user interface (ios 7) it makes me sick due to new animations. Camera on 5s is just OK because of videos taken at full hd 60fps and slow motion 720p at 120fps. I don't like the fingerprint scanner. Live tiles on wp is refreshing and I don't have to open apps after apps to check new content. I am sure by ios 9 5s would be running like iPhone 4 with ios 7.

    You talking about iOS 9 I doubt it. I think iOS 8 would be enough 😉

    I like Apple also nothing wrong with a little competition. Yes the iPhone is great, I know. But Windows Phone users don't consider the NL 925 as a flagship phone.

    Why?

    I put the NL925 and Cortana pound per on a daily basis against an iPhone 5s and Siri. And my NL925 beats the iPhone and Siri on everything.

    And I mean everything. It is taller and wider than the iPhone. Toib videos are way more clear than YouTube. Better picture, better sound. Etc

    If this phone the NL925 is not a flagship than what is?

    Used to be, now the 1520, 1020, 1320 are. But its still a pretty high end phone

    Your 925 has hardware that is close to 3 years old. The SoC on the iPhone 5S wipes the floor with even the latest Snapdragon 800. It also has a better camera than the L925. So there you go.

    L1020 has identical hardware to 925. L1320 has a newer chipset but it's still a low end one.

    This is exactly right - for pure hardware, it's not even close. The Lumia is better in low light conditions for photos, but that's about it. Then again, the Lumia 925 is priced as a midrange phone (and it is) while the iPhone 5s is a premium phone. IOS is feeling more and more dated as an operating system, but the hardware in the iPhone 5s is second to none.

    I'd say it only wipes the floor when it run IOS, because its optimized for that chip.

    Hahah I see there are valid points here.. Especially regarding hardware.. But in MY opinion the "user experience" I have with my 925 can't be rivaled by any other phone.. Not even the Iphone 5s. The best things I like about the 5s is that I could actually use it with one hand and that it has a physical button for silencing the phone! But the 925 beats it in every other aspect -- Screen size, browsing, readability (pdf files), gaming (however the 5s does have more games available than us lol), re-sizing tiles and gps

    Yeah, the a7 on android or windows phone would run so bad. Apple really no how to optimise their os.

    Well they have the advantage of making their socs sonly for IOS while Wp and Android oems have to try to optimize the OS for the soc, thats much difficult if you ask me and even then Wp still manages to run smooth with socs in the 1.1Ghz level.

    And because of that, they can run their phones underclocked and underRAM'd than their competition. Their A7 for instance is a dual-core 1.3GHz processor with an added half a gig of RAM. If you had those specs on a Windows Phone (the 925 has a 1.5GHz processor with a full gig of RAM), you'd get complaints if it's sold for as much as the iPhone is sold. Probably wouldn't run as well either (the 630-635 has a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor with a half gig of RAM). Then you have the screen size, and we all know what we like, haha.

    L925 hardware is 2 years old. It's the same stuff powering the S3, One X and Droid Razzr. Anyway, the iPhone is faster than those Q800 devices because 1) different OSes, 2)in the case of iPhones, they can be programmed to the metal where as Android devices programming is not.

    iOS is optimized great for iPhone hardware. The same thing can be said for WP OS and it's hardware, more or less. (WP8.1 prev does not feel native at the current time though)

    So it's not only a matter of specs. Unsurprisingly it never was. Take a Lumia 900 with WP7.8, an iPhone 4 with iOS6 and a Samsung Galaxy S1 with Kitkat. All three run on single core ~1 Ghz and 512 ram and yet most of the time Android will crawl where WP and iOS will breeze by. WP being the fastest overall.

    I do believe that the NL 925 is a top of the line device. I also believe its still better than the 5s.

    I can't say much on build quality. Both are great in that aspect.

    I prefer the 925s camera to the 5s because of many reasons. It takes better pictures. My use between the two, and watching video comparisons confirms that. OIS helps to trump i5s video taking ability because of less shake and ability to have smoother video; videos that are in less than perfect lighting.

    It also has a better screen. Higher resolution, with sun-light readability. Nokia glance screen and things like Pure motion +. IPhone is still great looking, but it doesn't offer these things.

    The 925 also has better mics. Making videos, voice recognition, annotating notes, messages, etc that much more enjoyable.

    Ios7 just got zooming while recording. 925 been enjoying that for a while.

    Lastly, it looks better.

    Its because of its low price tag.just touch yourself lumia 925 is only 400$ off contract.whereas iphone is 900$ phone.right nokia should make its cost comparable with other flagship.

    come on OP, you're taking this too far

    not every phone is flagship
    there must be frigates in the line with the flagship

    honestly, I don't mind having a frigate if that thing runs better than enemy's flagship

    The point of any flagship should not be for the price to be so high that the average consumer could not buy it...
