AT&T Nokia Lumia 925 - Unboxing and first impressions

Yesterday, AT&T and Nokia released the slim and mostly-metal Lumia 925, bringing along with it one of the nation’s largest LTE networks at a $99 price point ($429 off contract). Today, we go hands on with the latest Nokia offering and come away impressed.

Featuring 16GB of internal storage (12GB available), a 4.5-inch AMOLED display with ClearBlack and an 8.7MP PureView camera with that extra lens-element for improved sharpness, there’s a lot to like about the Lumia 925. The phone is cool-to-the-touch due to the aluminum frame and it comes in elegant black (as opposed to T-Mobile’s brighter white offering). The OS is build 1328 (GDR2) and like other AT&T GDR2 devices, unfortunately lacks Data Sense.

Though the device omits the extra 16GB of storage found on the Lumia 920 and 1020 and neglects wireless charging, the Lumia 925 offers a more conservative and sophisticated style than those other two devices. Simply put, this device looks fantastic just lying there with the Glance screen on and the cool, reflective metal and display.

Replacement for the Lumia 920? Nope, just a much thinner and lighter sister-device for a different audience.

We’ve reviewed the Nokia Lumia 925 in the past and did a follow up hands on with the T-Mobile version, but look for a mini-review of the AT&T variant in the coming days. For now, you can watch our unboxing video and check out our high quality photos.

The AT&T Nokia Lumia 925 is now available at your local store or online.
