    ...they’re all good, and they all suck, at the same time. Wait, what? Let me explain! I am lucky to have a rather impressive collection of devices, mostly because of my addiction, and also because it just so happens that I do this for work. Lucky me, I can always opt for the perfect smartphone for every situation, knowing the pros and the cons of each. You might not be so lucky. If you are, chances are you’re doing the same thing I am. Shuffling phones depending on what you do, where, and for how long. I always choose the iPhone 5 when I go outside to shoot some pictures in bright, ...

    While you may have already seen our review of the international version of the Nokia Lumia 925, a special version made for T-Mobile USA was recently released. This marks the first time that T-Mobile really has a good high-end Windows Phone to offer its customers. As the model number would indicate, the Lumia 925 has a lot of similarities to the Lumia 920 that's been available on AT&T for quite a while as well as the Lumia 928 which is available on Verizon in the US. T-Mobile's Nokia Lumia 925 finally brings the carrier up to speed with the amazing technological advancements that ...

    Can this be true? As Brandon and I were discussing Motorola's new Droid line-up, I can't lie, my initial reaction was to not care. I've been so disappointed in the past by last-year's Droids that I really didn't care enough to even gaze at the spec sheet of these phones. I was expecting the same story, where the MAXX was a battery phone, the Ultra was the "so called" flagship and then the mini was just another watered-down variant that's not even worth your consideration. I was wrong. At Pocketnow, most of us have always wanted one type of phone that didn't really exist until now. There's ...

    Those using the Amber edition of Windows Phone on Nokia Lumia devices -- probably a select few owners of the Lumia 925 at the moment -- will notice an update to the "display+touch" application (setting) in their store. You can, if you have a compatible phone, access it via the link in the source below. Glance Screen displays relevant information while the phone is locked (asleep). Previously, you could set the Nokia Glance Screen to be always on or "timed" for 15 minute, after which the screen would go completely off. Now, with this update, you can enable the "peek" option, which utilizes ...

    The 41-megapixel sensor, Zeiss lens, and the overall hardware construction of the imaging system is just part of the picture snapping capabilities on the new Nokia Lumia 1020. A huge part is played by the Nokia Pro camera, bundled out of the box with the Lumia 1020, just like the Nokia Smart Cam comes with the Lumia 925. Allowing you to manually tweak most of the settings to achieve the best looking stills, the Nokia Pro Camera app will also arrive to other Lumia phones later this year. Official wording from Nokia mentions the Lumia 920, Lumia 925, and Lumia 928, as phones that will get ...

    Right now, the only way to get your hands on a Windows Phone 8 smartphone running the very latest iteration of the platform is to buy a brand-new handset like the Lumia 925. That's because Microsoft's GDR2 update has yet to become available separately for installation on existing hardware. We've been wondering when that might change, and the rest of the WP8 pack could hope to see their own updates arrive. It looks like we're getting one step close today, as Microsoft posts the GDR2 release notes on its Windows Phone 8 update history page. Unsurprisingly, there's little here we didn't ...

    Back in June, T-Mobile sent out invitations to an event where it claimed it would be showing off some of its "boldest moves yet." We speculated at the time about what it might have on the agenda, and besides some news about more of its "UNcarrier" plans, we also thought we might hear some specifics about the start of sales for both the Nokia Lumia 925 and the Sony Xperia Z, both previously announced. That event finally took place this afternoon, and it looks like we were right on the money. Both the Lumia 925 and Xperia Z will go up for sale on July 17, confirming a leaked roadmap we got ...

    When we use our phones in our regular lives, or we test them, it's either "the phone has a good camera" or "the phone could have had a better camera". What we don't really know is the technology and effort that is built in the construction, regardless of the make or model. These images, above and below, are shedding some light on the multiple components that are built-in the Nokia Lumia 925 camera system. Your smartphone may have one, or two, components less, or more, but, on a general note, this is how it looks exploded. We've come a long way, ladies and gents! These are no longer your ...

    There's a story going around today about the Nokia Lumia 925, and how the T-Mobile version of the smartphone, for which we've recently been discussing launch rumors, appears to have just got the thumbs-up from the FCC. Even a cursory look at the documents, though, reveals this isn't the case. So what's wrong? Well, what we've got here is test documentation for Nokia model RM-892. That number has already been associated with the Lumia 925. But when we look at the actual test docs, they're seriously lacking: the only frequency coverage the FCC signed-off on is this model's GSM bands. While ...

    T-Mobile has just started sending out press invites to a New York City event scheduled for July 10. As you can see above, the carrier boasts that some of its "boldest moves yet" are coming... but what does that mean? Well, let's think about what T-Mobile could be planning to announce. We just saw a leaked roadmap that showed a few things happening in the days following July 10. On July 14, there's mention of a "major EIT release," and rumor has it that this could mark the beginning of the second phase of the network's "UNcarrier" plans. A little later that week, on Wednesday, July 17, that ...

    We've reviewed both the Nokia Lumia 925 and the Sony Xperia Z. They're both great devices and they're both coming to T-Mobile. Today's bit brings us a Nokia Lumia 925 and Sony Xperia Z T-Mobile release date, in the form of a leaked internal document. July 14 appears to be the date in the calendar where both of these phones are mentioned for launch day on Magenta, alongside a T-Mobile 768, most probably a low-end prepaid phone. While there's no information on pricing of the Sony Xperia Z, the report claims that the Nokia Lumia 925 will set you back $99.99, if you're a "well qualified ...

    In the food service industry, when you're a server who's been slammed with too many customers and can't keep up with the demand, you're said to be "in the weeds." On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you've wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you've found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry). But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today's Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech ...

    Nokia announced the Lumia 925 at its May 14, 2013 event in London, and the phone was brought to the stage as "the most advanced smartphone" on the market. The buzz-word of the day was aluminum; the company emphasized the advantages of using aluminum for the phone's body, granting overall better reception and antenna performance. However, the Lumia 925 is not made completely out of aluminum. The back panel, non-removable, is still made out of polycarbonate: this time, a very soft-touch version of it. Nokia also slightly tweaked the design of the Lumia 925. While one can still instantly ...
