Fly Or Die: Nokia Lumia 925

How Social And Primary Sources Affect Online Media Brands

The Nokia Lumia 925 is the Finnish phone maker’s latest attempt at wooing hapless shoppers over to the Windows Phone 8 platform, and it’s a solid proposition.

The real stand-out feature has to be the camera, which is still considered PureView despite being an 8.7MP camera, as opposed to the Lumia 1020′s 41-megapixel shooter. Still, the Carl Zeiss camera is loaded with exclusive Smart Camera software, including a special burst mode that takes ten shots at once.

This burst mode lets users do a number of different things, including grabbing the best frame of a shot, composing an action series, or even changing focus after the shot was taken, Lytro-style.

It’s pretty much unanimously agreed upon by Natasha, John and I that this is one of the best smartphone camera’s available.

But the camera isn’t the only thing that shines: The Lumia 925 has a slight profile with metallic edges and has a solid feel in the hand. John admits that it does soak up prints, however.

In terms of specs, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon chip powers the device, which has 16GB/32GB of onboard memory and 1GB of RAM under the hood. It also sports a 4.5-inch AMOLED display at 1280 x 768.

And if that weren’t attractive enough of a deal, you can run in and pick up the Lumia 925 at a T-Mobile for $0 down and 24 payments of $20.

Two flies.
