How the Nokia Lumia 925 Stacks Up to the Competition

Of course, numbers are only going to tell one side of the story, and we really won't be able to get a good idea of what this phone can do until we've spent some real time with it. But as far as straight stats go, the Lumia 925 has some nice updates from its 920 predecessor to keep in line with its fellow flagships. It's now boasting an OLED display instead of the LCD that the 920 carried, so that should at least help it somewhat against its more pixel-dense companions. A slight camera improvement gives it a nice boost too, being out-megapixeled by the Galaxy S IV only. Otherwise, it's a pretty tight race, meaning the true deciding factor—as is increasingly the case—is the software that all these guts are empowering. Read More >>
