Nokia refined the design of the Lumia 920 flagship, but didn’t fundamentally change it – the Lumia 925 is, in essence, the 920S. The number of changes might be small, but their magnitude isn’t. With a better body, screen and software, the Nokia Lumia 925 is a more desirable device than its 920 sibling.
The AMOLED screen of the 925 is thinner, than the LCD of the older model. It has the same basic specs – a 4.5″ diagonal, WXGA resolution, Gorilla Glass 2, ClearBlack and Super sensitive touch. And there is more new features than the old model, as in FM radio support and the Nokia Smart Camera application.
The Nokia Lumia 925 has a 4.5 inch AMOLED 768×1280 WXGA display. The details on the screen are crisp and pleasant, thanks to 16 million colours, WXGA Corning Gorilla glass display and the PureMotion HD+ ClearBlack display.
When using the Lumia outdoors, bright sunlight won’t be a problem thanks to the auto-brightness feature. It adjusts the screen to a comfortable level depending on the lighting conditions.
- HERE City Lens
HERE City lens allows a one to use a combination of the Lumia 925′s camera and it’s gyroscope to offer an augmented-reality look at the surrounding area.
- Creative Studio
Instagram-sque Creative Studio application allows one to add filters to images. The app also allows one to add or remove focus on a portion of the image through blurring, making colors stand out more through “color pop” and even create a college.
OneNote is Microsoft’s Evernote. OneNote allows one to record notes through pictures, audio and checkboxes. OneNote allows one to keep track of their ideas, to do lists, and save notes.
The camera app on Windows Phone has rich settings, ranging from scenes and effects to white balance, contrast, saturation, sharpness and ISO among others. You have a dedicated Macro focus mode but no face detection. The flash can be set to auto, forced or off. A separate setting allows the LED to work as an AF assist light.
In the latest camera software Nokia has raised the maximum ISO setting from 800 to 3,200 and has tweaked image processing in low-light conditions.
So, we’ve mentioned Smart Camera several times already and it’s time to explain what it does. It’s the next generation of Smart Shoot and is based on technology developed by Scalado (now owned by Nokia).
It shoots a burst of 10 photos at 5MP resolution and allows you to edit those photos later. When editing a Smart Camera photo you choose one of several modes by swiping through their respective cards, each with a helpful label.
The basic feature here is best shot – automatically selecting the best photo out of the 10 (you can manually override the selection). You can also select the best expression for each individual face in the photo.
The multiple photos can be used to remove moving objects as well.
Then there’s Action shot – a moving object is overlaid on the photo several times to create a sense of motion. You can pick which of the 10 photos are used to create the action shot and the multiple copies can either be opaque or semitransparent.
The other mode that enhances motion is Motion focus – it locks the moving object, but blurs the background around it. Imagine turning the camera to track a fast moving object, that’s the effect that Motion focus simulates.
