Looks and Appearance: As soon as you give Lumia 925 a look the changes in its design compared to its predecessors is obvious.

Even with the metal construction, the device is light and yet sturdy to hold. At just 139 rams, its way to lighter than Lumia 920 (185 grams). A thickness profile of 8.5mm will hardly have anyone complaining either.

It is also capable of recording 1080p HD videos. A small Nokia logo and speaker grill at the bottom are also present at the back. At the front is 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display which has received a major pgrade over the predecessors- in place of LCD IPS is OLED panel which is over-laid with Corning GORILLA GLASS 2 protection. Though, in terms of resolution and ppi everything is still the same- 1,280 x 768 (720p) with 334 ppi. A 1.2 MP shooter which would be more often than used for video calls and self-portraits is also present at the top.
The device is powered by a Dual-core 1.5GHz MSM8960 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM which are quite sufficient for the functioning of light and stable Windows Phone 8 OS. NFC is also present of the device and with an optional Snap-on cover, the device can also support wireless charging. A 2000 mAh battery what you'll find on the device, though how it performs with OLED display on-board remains to be seen.
