When it comes to the updated chassis, the Lumia 925 refresh can be likened to BMW's M-Series - they are terribly almost like their non-M-powered brethren when it comes to design, but the updated body could be a definite improvement over the first. In terms of what goes beneath the hood though, these are two different faculties of thought. Because the 925 is largely the identical package because the the Lumia 920.

The Lumia 925 is all concerning the appearance and feel - the updated body is a definite improvement, and there is some further options thrown in to sweeten the pot furthermore. Although it could be minor, the inclusion of the thinner and, additional importantly, lighter frame takes care of two of the disadvantages we listed for the Lumia 920.

The chipset is the identical as before and whereas it's not a benchmark blaster, however WP devices have consistently demonstrated they don't need an excessive amount of horsepower to administer a smooth ride through the UI. Of course, heavier apps could tend to load a touch slower, but lags and system freeze ought to be just about impossible.

Up next, we have a tendency to'll be taking a closer study the redesigned body in our unboxing and hardware inspection.
