Nokia's Windows Phone Lumia 925

The Lumia 925, the new terminal on Windows Phone 8 is adorned with an aluminum hull, corrects the defects of its predecessor and once again puts the focus on the picture quality and features associated with the image and video. Nokia does not slow down the pace. Having expanded its portfolio of Smartphones, Lumia the mid entry level at the recent Mobile World Congress, the world number two now reviewing its premium offering with the Lumia 925, introduced as the successor to the 920. It is indeed a good time to Finnish. On the one hand, the strategy around Windows Phone 8 slowly starting to bear fruit. While Nokia is still far from a Samsung or Apple, but it comes from afar. In the first quarter, sales of Lumia jumped 27% over three months to 5.6 million units against 4.4 million between October and December. On the other, it is too strengthen against the top models of competition, namely the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One or the Sony Xperia Z. With Lumia 925, the manufacturer considers to reach the level of these predators. In fact, this Smartphone corrects the defects of its predecessor, the 920. It is also presented as a "new interpretation" of this model. The 920 is a good device, but it may be a little heavy, a little thick for the European but Lumia 925 is rather thin and light.

Thus, for the first time in this range, the 925 is adorned with an aluminum shell look great instead of colored plastic. It does not acknowledge that 139 grams on the scale for a thickness of 8.5 mm. This is the finest of the 900 range. Also this update aesthetics welcome, Nokia renewed emphasis on functions related to image and video, new anchor communication of the firm developed. "Take pictures, edit them, share them are the most important to consumers today use. The OS also plays a role, but the picture is a selection criterion increasingly critical," suggests Jo Harlow, Vice President and General Manager of Smart Devices, Nokia. And it is true that this communication manufacturer now revolves around this point: the quality of the shots, especially in harsh environments, such as low light.

Specifically, the 925 PureView loads a new lens technology to take pictures and "clearer and sharper, especially in low light conditions" videos. It is also correct some defects Lumia in the past. Meanwhile, Nokia introduced a new mode of called Nokia Smart Camera imaging, which can take ten images at once and edit photos using options such as Best Shot (Best shot), Action Shot (Action Photo) and Motion Focus to obtain the most satisfactory image. Some of its functions are not new, they are found especially in BlackBerry 10, but it is this kind of gadget that Nokia wants to make a difference. It is also worth noting that this feature will be available for update on all smart phones Lumia series.

Nokia also announced a new application called Hipstamatic Oggl that can take, edit and share pictures including Instagram. Recall that the popular Instagram is still not available for Windows Phone 8 (which currently has 145,000 applications). Technical side specification, the Lumia 925 is 4G, it features a 4.5-inch screen (1280x768), a dual heart Snapdragon processor 1.5 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, 7 GB SkyDrive storage free. The camera sensor displays PureView 8.7 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), autofocus, dual LED flash, 1080p HD at 30 frames per second video. Everything is driven by Windows Phone 8. With this new Smartphone, which can eventually qualify as camera phone image is highlighted, Nokia does it amplify the tremor observed in recent months. The intensity of competition does not promote the Finnish but it is now much better emphasized by distributors, "always looking for an alternative" to iOS and Android, said Patrick Chomet, Vodafone.
