Since the launch of Nokia’s first Lumia handset in the smartphone arena, the Finnish Company has been working hard to make requisite improvements in the handset.
As a result, the company finally turned up with the Nokia Lumia 925 Windows Phone. The Lumia 925 is an ambitious Windows Phone, which comes equipped with state of the art features and specifications, aiming to provide the potential user with an all-round Windows Phone experience.
The Lumia 925 should not be considered a direct successor to the Lumia 920 handset, as it comes with enhanced design, an AMOLED screen, a better camera and a plethora of features, which were absent in the Lumia 920 handset. In comparison, we have placed the fourth generation Android based smartphone from Google – the Nexus 4. Windows Phone and Android based smartphones have always been in direct competition with each other.
Today, we would stack up the Nokia Lumia 925 Windows Phone to that of Google Nexus 4 smartphone, in terms of their interface and functionality.
Interface and Functionality
Nokia Lumia 925
You should not expect anything out of the ordinary with the Windows Phone 8 upgrade to the Nokia Lumia 925 handset. The functioning is exactly the same as that of any other handset coming equipped with similar operating systems. The home screen offers basic looking Live Tiles, but capable to cater the user with relevant information.
The Windows Phone 8 main menu may not be considered the most convenient method to organize your app list. You can surely pin your favorite and most required app onto the home screen, but the plethora of apps on the home screen would appear more of a big app list, because of WP8’s simplicity. The customization options on the WP8 are also limited to rearranging the tiles, changing color theme and switching between their available sizes.
Messaging: Microsoft has designed a superb keyboard, which is apt for easy and comfortable typing.
Organizer: The Lumia 925 handset comes equipped with WP8, which offers the potential user a powerful arrangement of organization options. The Office Hub is an excellent place for heavy office users, offering flawless office file functionality and compatibility.
Google Nexus 4
The Google Nexus 4 comes equipped with a stock Android version 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. However, the 4.2 Jelly Bean offers a similar experience as that of the previous 4.1 Jelly Bean version. The UI has a straightforward and minimalistic approach with its appearance. Regardless, with a closer look into the UI, some major new features are revealed with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
Updated Notifications: The notification panel comes with expandable portion, enabling the user to preview things. A button, affixed on the top right corner provides access to standard assortments of connectivity items.
Daydreams: The Android 4.2 Jelly Bean provides the user with the latest ‘Daydream’ feature. It is a screensaver, which activates whenever the handset is put on charging. However, the feature is not something to boast about as people hardly hover around the handset, when on charging.
Overall, there is nothing dramatic about the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. It provides the user with simple and basic functionality, which the user is accustomed to experiencing.
