CSW, 11 Dec 2015Mine as well. Will switch to Android phoneyea because Android phones never have software issues.
My Lumia 925 work well in 2 years. Do automatic update to avoid problems.
Lumia 925 is Bricked!!! Just put it for charging. When I looked it after some hours,it was completely dead.I tried all that I can-reset,hard reset,no use-no sign of waking up!!!I replaced the battery atlast,no use. Many users of same series of phone faced the same issue and yet no solution. If any1 knows how to bring back this phone to Life.Please let me know...
Don't go for it. Its heavy, design is not good, mostly its like just metal sitting your side. If you like Lumia devices, go for the latest WP10 operated ones.
I'm using Lumia 925 for last one year. Good experience but now in camera flash light not working. But it works in flash light app.. Plz give me the solutions friends.
same story with me, year and eleven months worked prefect and suddenly stopped working. Lucky, I had two years guarantee, they said motherboard gone, offered me Lumia 830 as replacements. Sorry, but I guess that same story will be with your phone
I am a windows phone user from 2005. The best one I had was MIO Mitac which I ‎still usable. Then I bought an LG WP7 which went bust after two years. In May 2014 ‎I bought Lumia 925. I've had this Lumia 925 for 18 months. After the first year it ‎began shutting down or freezing for no reason at all. two weeks ago it went ‎completely dead. Hard reset; leaving in charge for 12 hours, I tried everything. No ‎response. Sent it to the shop. Came back in exactly the same shape. totally dead. ‎When putting to charge the windows sign lights for half a second and that's it. No ‎response at all. The same is when attaching to computer. Light is on for two seconds ‎and that's it. totally dead. Disappointed. Don't even want to send to shop once more.‎
zongliere, 12 Nov 2015I've had this phone for two years almost, and it just stopped working today. Took it to the se... moreI purchased a store demo model off eBay for $50 off eBay. Brand new but with a little burn in on the screen from constant operation in the t mobile store. However, I love the phone. Have had it for about 3 months now. I have previously had a Lumia 800, 2 900's, a Galaxy S5, and iPhone 5s. The simplicity, HERE apps, camera, and sunlight readability are all I need for now. Nokia is doing(did) a great job.
I've had this phone for two years almost, and it just stopped working today. Took it to the service. Fingers crossed! Why? Because I love it! It's easy to use, it has such great technical qualities, it's light, beautiful, the screen just never scratches - it's unbreakable, unlike androids, it's menu is clear and simple, the camera is amazing - yesterday I was at this seminar and took a picture of a slide from a distance - and everything is readable! I mean, it's quality is just nice, and the desing, oh, the menu - everything is very tastefully done. And I really miss it. And even I am kind of supposed to have a new phone, cause, you know, it's old, I DON"T WANT TO! I was even looking for phones today - and all I could find was a cacophony in their systems, designs and stuff. I might sound too excited, but, guys, I love this phone. It's really my little helper - the best smartphone I ever had. And I would never switch to Androids - as I said, cacophony in every phone. Nope :)
Is it really a useful phone for those who are all ready using android based smart phones ?
Is there any comparison between these two different OS based smart phones?
Please friends help me out for this problem cause I'm totally confused... Which OS based smart phone should I purchase ?
