Nokia Lumia 925 Preview


The Nokia Lumia 925 is an affordable Windows smartphone that works with the AT&T and T-Mobile cellular networks (it can be purchased with or without a two-year contract). It features a pretty basic 1.5GHz dual-core processor, only 1GB ram, and internal storage is limited to 16GB. However, the phone does come with 7GB of free cloud storage and, with an optional microSD card, you can add another 64GB for larger media files, like say all the photos and Full 1080p HD videos you're going to record on the 925's main camera.

Speaking of, the Nokia Lumia has a pretty good camera set up (for a smartphone). 8.7-megapixels spread over a 1/3-inch image sensor. There's 4x worth of digital zoom, and a 26mm lens with a bright f/2.0 aperture, Autofocus, dual LED flash, a 100-3200 ISO range, and an 8cm minimum focus range. The phone's 4.5-inch WXGA touchscreen display allows full screen viewing mode while taking photos, and you can even manually "touch focus" during video recording, while taking full manual control of exposure and white balance. Not too shabby. Also, all Nokia phones have a full suite of photography apps, such as panorama.

Because this is a Windows phone, the Lumia 925 includes all the Microsoft Office apps, tons of email service compatibility options, a way to connect with your Xbox Live account, and tons of different ways to back up your media and/or share your latest shots and videos via your favorite social networks.
