To those experiencing fast battery drains and overheating after the 8.1 preview update, please check your background tasks and disable those that you don't need to run in the background. Go to settings>battery saver>usage>show all apps, then disallow the apps you don't want running without your knowledge. Then perform a soft reset after (hold the power button + volume down). The reason why some wp8.1 users experience battery drains and heating is because the update re-enabled all apps to run in the background. My 925 lasts for a day and a half with moderate gaming, wifi, browsing, fb, texts and calls. Please also disable everything on "sync my settings". Hope this helps fellow WP lovers.
I have both lumia 925 and galaxy S5. Each phone is unique! BOTH phones are great!
This is not an Android platform but cause it was started, fine; 1st of all, Droid users should ask themselves why their OS has so many updates in a short space of time whilst WP only has 1. Secondly, out of all those m, "many" apps, how many do you have and use effectively on a day to day basis, 3 maybe 4?. I used the 520, 920 and now the 925. This is one of the best devices to hit the surface of earth, runs smoothly, the view is just amazing. Twitter: @MikeTDeep

hey.... don't fight.... :) , it a choice, you may love android or Windows... that's your choice... there is a considerable App store for Windows though the qty is not bigger than Android Apps... by the way... Android is a kind that used by a lot of people around... i just want a phone that is not used by a lot, then it will be easy to keep my data hidden too... on the other hand Android is getting older my friend... it's time to go for the new era... we are moving... are you still in the Android wold...?? :p
Begging for help. Was checking out settings on my 925, which I've had for a few months. Went to ease of access and decided to try "mobility"--it makes the phone talk for like low vision or vision impaired people. I just wanted to try it. But once I turned it on and the phone reset itself (it said it would do that)I got a horrid surprise. My screen timed out and I tried to enter my password. I put in the correct password and the phone told me every number. Then it just sat there until the screen timed out. It won't accept my password and go to my tiles screen.
On the phone with Nokia and they want me to do hard reset. NO NO NO I just got everything in there! Soft reset -- volume down plus power button -- did not help.
Anybody got the answer?

how to upgrade lumia 925 windows 8.1 i want to use notification bar option
harsh, 20 May 2014How exactly you updated to 8.1 ?Yes, really I a have updated my phone to 8.1 preview. First download the app 'PREVIEW For DEVELOPERS ' from apps store. Then open the app sign with your Microsoft account. The do what is said in the app. Only a few steps then you will easily get the update in the phone update section.
Hi guys... One question! Kind regards in advance!
How is the BATTERY LIFE on the 925 - good/modest/bad? And have anyone experience from battery life 925 vs Lumia 800 which is my current phone? Thanks!
Anonymous, 20 May 2014Same to you, seems like you dont have a job other thn bashing wp8. I hate lagdoid but never go... moreI got this phone from my uncle because he told he is going to change to ios and he don't use this phone anymore. I used this phone around two months. I really disappointed with the Windows OS. When comparing it with my Android phone, Windows OS has less functionality. Most of the third party apps are not working properly, those apps are compulsory to me.
This thread is for post users' opinions, experience or ideas whether they are positive or negative. I have right to do that and I did that. I think I don't need your permission to post my opinion here. You don't need to distract by reading my comments. I don't care what you use or what you hate and I didn't force you to get rid of Windows phones and use Android phones. It's simply my opinion.
AnonD-116479, 20 May 2014Seems like you have never touched a Android device. Please find another factor to bash Android. Same to you, seems like you dont have a job other thn bashing wp8. I hate lagdoid but never gone to their fourm to bash. Its wp8 page, so this page is not for lagdroid lovers.
AnonD-116479, 20 May 2014Seems like you have never touched a Android device. Please find another factor to bash Android. Mr troll, in my home my bro has lagdroid, in my frnd circle two guys has lagdroids. So dnt tell me I never used them. I used them and within a moment I find lag. And some apps crash. The whole system is crap and boring compared to wp8. my lowend wp8 works smoothly thn their midrange lagdroid.
