T-Mobile finally gets a high end Windows Phone with the lovely Lumia 925. This is the first Lumia model with a dash of metal and we really like the aluminum surround breaking the sameness of the polycarbonate unibody design. The phone isn't available in those wild Lumia 920 colors, but we have to say it does look good in white, black and gray options. The smartphone is a bit slimmer and nearly an ounce lighter than the Lumia 920, but it keeps the excellent 8.7MP PureView camera with stabilized Carl Zeiss lens, dual core Snapdragon CPU clocked at 1.5GHz and the 1280 x 768 resolution.
This time Nokia's back to ClearBlack AMOLED with the outdoor viewable display and glove-friendly touch screen. It's a sharp 4.5" display with 334 ppi and colors are vibrant yet natural. The Lumia 925 sells for $480 on T-Mobile, or zero down with 24 $20 monthly payments. It has 3G HSPA+ and 4G LTE. The phone uses a micro SIM card and there's no microSD card slot, so the 16 gigs of internal storage are all you have to work with.
