Nokia Lumia 925: caught between past and future

Tweakers zegt: bovengemiddeld Conclusion

If you buy this 925, is believed to be the Nokia Lumia you will purchase. Nokia will disappear in the foreseeable future of the smartphone market. The name Nokia will no longer adorn the Lumia’s that Microsoft releases as Nokia’s phone division has taken over once. Microsoft releases than Lumia’s out, not Nokia’s.

The handsets that Nokia still deliver, so sit by definition caught between past and future: these are still Nokias, but everyone knows that it does not take long before the name of Europe’s proud not to millions of smartphone owners in front of their unit will stand.

Where Nokia in the first half of this year mainly cheaper handsets with Windows Phone released, it is now time for some expensive phones. The manufacturer kicks off with the Lumia 925, following the end of September 1020 with the Lumia and if we are to believe the rumors there is a Lumia in 1520, with 6 “Full HD screen and quad-core Snapdragon processor 800.

Between all that highend-violence is the Lumia 925 is actually a tweaked Lumia 920 last year. The design has been modified and the camera is slightly changed, but many things are the same. Especially What does different: the 925 is thinner and lighter, has an antenna in its aluminum edge and the LCD of the Lumia 920 digs for an AMOLED screen. Nokia also has an incomprehensible downgrade added: the standard version has 16GB of non-expandable memory, where the 920 had a storage capacity of 32GB.

Where the Lumia from Nokia 1020 camera phone, point the manufacturer is with the 925 especially on the masses. However, the Lumia 920 is cheaper, has more memory and, if you just disregard weight, seemingly few drawbacks. Is the Lumia 925 worth it or are you better off with Nokia’s older model?

Screen: no LCD, but amoled

Nokia Lumia 925

Nokia uses identical names for marketing its screens, but there are big differences. The Lumia 925 has a ClearBlack display with Pure Motion HD + technology. This scatters Nokia lavish with the same marketing terms as it did with the 920.

ClearBlack refers to a polarizing filter from Nokia itself to reduce reflections and blacker blacks seem to do. The marketing claims are not nonsense, because it works. Pure Motion HD + refers to the refresh rate of the screen, everything would seem smoother to boost the refresh rate. Because of AMOLED itself has a higher refresh rate, that should be no problem.

And yet it is this: when animation is clear that the pixel blocks overlap and not as nice as the picture will appear in the Lumia 920. Where exactly is, is a little unclear, but presumably there is a major flaw in the way Nokia screen controls, because he suffers from tearing the effect that there is overlap between two frames which images appear blurry when scrolling. That is probably not the screen itself, but it is a problem that Nokia could solve through an update.

You might think that it is less easy to read the screen of the Lumia 925 in sunlight than that of the Lumia 920, because it is an AMOLED screen. To extend the life of pixels manufacturers set screens less fiercely.

Nokia has not done that. At least, partly not. If you set the brightness to high then he comes up to 299 nits, around the value of the Galaxy S4. However, if you put it under a bright light, it appears that the screen until an insane 566 nits can – and we have never seen at a AMOLED. The Nokia 808 PureView did even something – that goes to 499 nits. Note: use the phone continuously in direct sunlight and brightness so let boost above 500 nits is a way to ensure the phone within a year to the junkyard to help. AMOLEDs are not so durable that they long handle such a high brightness. With the Dutch winter is approaching that hardly a problem.

Like the Lumia 920, and many other phones now, the 925 has a glove-mode. This is a way of touchscreen supplier Synaptics touch screen to make operation with gloves. Possible to , According to Nokia are slightly more sensitive than the 920, the operation but the difference is minimal: we can not detect it properly in any case. With thin gloves still does not work. Still fine, with thick mittens

A big plus is that the user can set it necessary to screen themselves: both the color temperature and color can be adjusted with a slider and that is a big advantage. Users who want to choose to do so, while natural colors users who prefer saturated colors so may bring.

A potential downside, the subpixel layout can be. The 920 has a RGB format, the 925 has to do with PenTile, rgbg. In addition, there are only two subpixels per pixel instead of three, so the screen is less sharp. The difference can not see really happy. You really need to sit down with your nose to perceive. PenTile of the adverse effect on the screen

The viewing angles of the screen of the Lumia 925 are not good. An angle is mainly white and green that is very ugly. Samsung has that self in its Galaxy S4 already solved, but the generation AMOLEDs that Nokia used here we see it still. So check you often lay at an angle, for example, the phone on the table that is a disadvantage.

That insane brightness AMOLED concepts atlijd means you can read, even if you try that on a bright, sunny day in the sun the screen. Also compared to LCD’s brightness is particularly high compared to the Lumia 920, the screen a bit brighter. That is totally unexpected, but clearly chooses Nokia for functionality.

The contrast of the screen, we obviously can not measure: our meter is not accurate enough to accurately measure the black level, which is particularly close to AMOLEDs at 0,. As a result, we can not determine exactly how the contrast is high, but it is in any case many factors higher than LCD’s.

The color temperature of the 925 itself can set the user via the Display item in the Settings menu. The coolest color temperature is about 7500 Kelvin, the warmest is about 5100 Kelvin – which is the warmest color temperature we have ever measured on a phone. Default is the Lumia around 6700 Kelvin and there is nothing you have to do: he is excellent.

The same goes for color: in the settings menu is here to present a slide. Standard 4.5 dE2000 he comes around, but that you can get through that menu down to a value of 2.36. Or you should do is demand, because 4.5 is already no annoying color error.
Battery life: he will last longer?

The Lumia 925 has the same 2000mAh battery as the Lumia 920, but it is obvious to other results of battery tests to be expected. AMOLED screens are often more economical watching film, asking more of the battery during browsing. That has to do with the fact that there may be as to be displayed in black AMOLEDs individually disabled: when movies are disproportionately dark images; when browsing is hardly the case.

Accu

We have battery life measured by four tests: browsing, watching video, call and leave the phone in standby. It is wifi on, and telephony and in standby 3G enabled. The screen brightness is 250 nits or get there as close to close. Explaining our test method and what we mean by heavy, medium and light use, can be found in the background story of our battery tests . In practice, the battery life also depends on things like the network used and installed apps. Moreover, the use of copy to copy differences.

With Windows Phone battery tests should be run in two runs, as it can be. Brightness is not adjusted properly The high brightness 299 nits, the middle setting is around 150 nits. Using these results, we calculated how the battery life would be if it could be. Brightness 250 nits adjusted

With heavy use, the Lumia 925 12 hours and that is disappointing: the Lumia 920 lasts longer and that is mainly because the 925 is much less performs during browsing and playing a little bit better at video. The result is that the Lumia 925 finally down the middle end: many phones do more with their batteries.

With light use keeps the 925 almost four full days. That’s not bad, but not good even for long after. And again there are many phones that sustain much longer. This test also be noted that the 925 is slightly less efficient than the 920 in standby. In that test are incidentally the ‘glimp’ screen and double-tap to make off, because who might have a negative impact. Wake the phone When a retest of these functions to other showed nothing of an impact. Design: an antenna of metal

Lumia 925

The Lumia 925 is not a small phone if you look at his screen size: like the 920, he is downright great. But the design he feels a lot smaller and easier than you might suspect. Based on the screen size That’s a credit to Nokia and a plume worth.

Precondition: photos do not do justice design 925. He is less photogenic, because he looks less minimalist and sleek than 920. Moreover, the glass front of the camera lens increases, what design more ‘breaks’ a small opening would. Moreover, it is not a unibody construction. The body of the device consists of several parts: an aluminum edge, just like the iPhone works as an antenna, and a plastic back.

The 925 is to hold than the 920, because it is thinner and lighter much better. He is better in the hand and it is easier to reach. All parts of the front with the fingers Moreover, the aluminum edge gives a good and luxurious feel.

That camera lens protrudes a bit and that makes that he can not lie. Right on the table He wobbles easily and is up slightly. Very annoying is not.

On the front is obviously the screen and here are decent edges around it. Above are the logo, a speaker grill, the front camera and the necessary sensors. Below the screen are the capacitive buttons. The backlight of the Windows key in the center can serve as notification LED, but may require an update: because he does not work as such.

The top is busy with a microphone, 3.5mm audio input jack for headsets, micro-USB port and microSIM slot. The latter acts as a simtray. The left side is completely cool, like the bottom: the microphone is on the front, at the bottom of a small uitspraring. On the right side are the other buttons for the camera, lock and volume.

The whole side is made ​​of aluminum, but to prevent a death grip Nokia as Apple some space left between various sections. These points are on the same sites as in iPhones.

On the back is the large cutout for the camera like a hill in a flat landscape. Moreover find. Dual LED flash At the bottom is the speaker and who can best loud. The speaker 920, the still attached to the bottom, but the positioning on the back of the 925 is not worse. The sound is not muted because if he is on the table, because the camera protrudes. Moreover, he can be tough, so you hear the sound well. The sound quality is a lot less.

All in all, the 925 so a successful design, but except in the field of ergonomics, there are no clear advantages compared to 920: Nokia’s device last year and that is a true tank design has many fans. This design will probably appeal to others who find the 920 too heavy. The lack of bright colors that the Lumia 920 is available, makes the difference between the two phones in this respect even greater.

Camera: six lenses

Nokia Lumia 925

Nokia’s marketing department will have difficult: the 925 should be the quality of the camera as one of the selling points sold. However, there is a problem: Nokia also has the 1020, which will soon go on sale in the Netherlands and in camera area – on paper at least – is far superior.

Despite what Nokia claims to have the camera done. There is an added sixth lens for clear pictures. The 925 is one of the few smartphone six cameras with lenses for the sensor. In addition, Nokia – and we quote – “device-specific algorithms added to the 925 to make better pictures possible.

The sensor is also the same as that of the 920. It is a 8.7 MP-sensor which is capable of very high resolutions both 4:3 – 16:9 as to make plates. The 925 also features optical image stabilization, which works by correcting movements. For this ‘floats’ between the lens springs, that the direction of the gyroscope is trying to keep the camera still.

The image stabilization is also in theory that the shutter speed in dark circumstances, making the lens more light and better pictures in lower light longer. That trick works, but not as superior as Nokia claims, despite the stabilization photos are often blurry. Furthermore photos look unrealistic: the sensor captures more light than you can see, making night scenes all seem to be made at dusk fast.

The optical image stabilization in the 925 works just as well as those in the 920 and thus better than the rest of the market, including those of the HTC and LG G2. Especially with video shows that difference. Filming is at 1080p at 30fps. Tricks as’ slow-motion videos, such as Apple and Samsung use, has not, but for the rest Nokia Nokia is the area of ​​filming still master the mobile market.

If the 925 it should have taken against the Lumia 920 as he appeared on the German market late last year, was become a glorious victory. But Nokia tinkers with his camera and software, the Lumia 920 since that time made much, much better.

We have to look for differences well: in many pictures is little or no difference to see if the Lumia 920 also no picture really better. It turned out that level of detail you see differences in some specific situations. These pictures are 1 on 1: a pixel on your image represents a pixel on the camera sensor.

The interface of the camera is the standard interface of Windows Phone. It is not very much, but what set. Nokia adds itself two – yes two applications to make pictures. The first is Pro Cam, a camera app with advanced settings, which still fine to use.

Although having such institutions is useful, it is unclear whether you really what to do. Such controls work on a camera that you are going to work more like a DSLR, because you do want to get the best pictures out. Who really cares about photography, obviously not used Lumia 925 as his main camera. The interface, however, is very well thought out.

Nokia Smart Cam is intended more for fun and combines several nice features in one app. The app makes a series of photos, then users can delete an object in the background unintended movement can emphasize by blurren, and so on. Part of the photo

Both apps can be set as the default app for the camera, so you get that same app when you press the camera button. Very convenient is not. First, both apps much slower than the default app so you can easily miss the moment. More annoying is that both apps only work if the phone is unlocked: you must enter the lock code before you can take a picture.
Software and hardware: everything as it

There is nothing new about the hardware or software of the Lumia 925. The device runs Windows Phone 8 GDR2 with Nokia’s suite of applications on top. For more information about the features of Windows Phone 8 you can see the review should consult while your here can read. GDR2 and more about the features added by Nokia

The Windows Phone is – even three years after the release – still nice and modern. Animations run smoothly and standard apps work well. The interface is also consistent across all apps, making navigation easy. It is easy to recommend to someone who has never had a smartphone and a device will for example mail, Facebook and some games. A Windows Phone

Although the store now well stocked and there is more than enough apps for many people, Windows Phone appears to have. A persistent problem The latest games and apps are not available for Windows Phone. While Instagram is an alternative, but the official client is missing. Candy Crush is not there and Wordfeud came when everyone has stopped playing. Many developers bring apps and games out for iOS and Android, and Windows Phone is not submitted or follow months later. This delay was not recent years to catch up and there seems to had not improved. You always want to try the latest apps and games, you’re better off with a smartphone on a different platform.

However, if you only require generic apps, like an app for the weather, public transport, traffic jams, etc., then the offer on Windows Phone sufficient.

One of the most notable new features Glimpse: a feature where the screen always shows the time. In combination with this is the function to create by tapping. Twice on the screen the phone awake Both functions come from Nokia’s own operating systems and now finally working on Windows Phone.

In comparison with the Lumia 920 is the Glimpses screen brighter in the Lumia 925. This is unfortunate, because that is actually in dark lighting conditions slightly too bright. There was noticing the function on the battery life no effect: both with and without we achieved the same results.

Also at Kraken, oriented modern web standards benchmark of Mozilla, is shown relative to the competition a big difference. Compared to other Windows Phones, there is obviously no significant difference. The Lumia 520 has a less powerful processor and that you see clearly again.

Hardware

One of the major disadvantages of the Lumia 925 is the storage memory which is a non-expandable 16GB and as with other phones that have – like the iPhone and Nexus 4 – before we sign a big minus to.

It’s not that 16GB would not be enough, but playing other problems. Firstly, the performance of storage memory often backwards as he almost full, so the capacity to fully exploit is never advisable. Moreover, for the feeling of carelessness: storage memory need not concern the user, but with 16GB of non-expandable memory make manufacturers with 1080p videos, screens that lend themselves to movies and series to watch and tough games that quickly half a GB in size, but a concern. The Lumia 920 has 32GB and therefore that problem a lot less dire. An even better solution is a microSD slot, although can give performance, the problems it gives the user the choice to add as much memory as he finds comfortable.

The memory is 1GB and that is enough for Windows Phone to having to take. No funny tricks Windows Phone leaves little in the background, so the memory is less important than for Android phones.

The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, a chip and a half years old. This processor does not in the museum, but he is not very new. Nokia had no choice: only with GDR3 supports Windows Phone powerful processors.

Is the Lumia 925 slow? No, certainly not. Especially the standard apps are fine optimized for this processor and they run like a charm. But once you go outside the beaten path, you notice immediately that the Lumia 925 is slower than competitors on Android and iOS. So if it takes a few seconds to go. The display settings The apps for Twitter and Facebook are workable, but noticeably slower than competitors.

The Lumia 925 has a difficult position: the 1020 is more expensive, but has a much better camera and the Lumia 920 is in many ways similar, but much cheaper. This means that the space for these small phone. At time of writing, it cost 419 euros, which is a bit too much to make for a large group of people. Him attractive

The Lumia 920 costs 120 euros less, has double the storage memory, a screen that looks less but does not suffer from tearing and the rest specifications are exactly the same. The thinner profile and lighter weight can still convince people of the 925 as the ‘novelty’, but this 920 offers much better value for money now.

Answer #1

Conclusion: sandwiched

Who thought the Lumia a worthy new flagship for Nokia would be 925 will be disappointed. It’s more a Lumia 920 2.0. However, it must battle with devices that are much newer than the 920, so he has a lot more complicated. Not surprising therefore that the introductory price is much lower than that of the 920 time.

Or anyway Lumia 925 is an upgrade to the Lumia 920, is to be seen: in the area of ​​the screen is a draw, as with the camera. The thinner and lighter design is an advantage, though he is not specifically beautiful in our eyes. Lumia 920 wins on points, because it has, instead of 16GB and for a much lower price in the shops. 32GB storage memory But that is not an easy choice: some will prefer the 925.

If rounder Nokia’s own 920 so big competition, while the more expensive 1020 exists by virtue of its superior camera. The 925 is therefore sandwiched between two devices from Nokia itself and that makes it really is the right choice for very few people.

In terms of software is the 925 then sandwiched between present and future: Microsoft. Yet the quad-core processors and full-HD screens that Nokia wants to use, but has been a lot of optimizations that the 920 did not have to release supports With a few months of patience, the 925 is a much more modern phone can be. Who buys this phone now, will have to regard with sorrow how the manufacturer modern models to come. Appeal with many more, in the foreseeable future

Compared to the competition on Windows Phone is not equal battle. No one except Nokia really does its best and with the purchase of Nokia by Microsoft falls from Samsung, HTC and Huawei also little fireworks expected. The Lumia’s are all alone.

The Lumia 925 is actually the most spiritual successor of the Lumia 900: that was a phone that was released when the future of Windows Phone already knocked at the door. Does that make the Lumia 925 a bad phone? Far from it, it belongs to Nokia’s best smartphones for the Dutch market so far. But this unit deserved to be. Earlier, cheaper or with more modern hardware released
