Nokia Lumia 925.
This is definitely a new look and feel for Nokia, away from the old brick status of its 1990s phones and the plastic-toy phone look of its more recent 700, 800 and 900 models, with a chic metal frame for its Lumia 925. Finally Nokia looks all grown up and ready for action. The styling is matched by a luminescent screen that showcases the bright tile interface of the Windows 8 OS. You're looking at an AMOLED display with a whopping 1280 x 768-pixel resolution.
The 925's shape feels solid and broad to grip, which makes for a change from some of the more precarious super-thin models hitting the market. It's super-sensitive to touch, too, which makes it effortless to use.
By now the geeks will be shouting at me to stop with the fashionista drivel and get to the point. ''But how does it run?'' You'll be pleased to know the Lumia 925 doesn't disappoint. It's fast, firing on a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. Up against the iPhone 5 and an HTC One XL, it was seconds ahead of both for basic navigation, which puts the flagship Nokia at the top of the smartphone class for speed.
The camera is right up there too - beautiful in low light, with crisp shots at 8.7 megapixels and image stabilisation to prevent those shaky out-of-focus shots.
There's only one real fault with Nokia's first seriously good smartphone, and it's the content, in particular the lack of it. Windows apps are still way behind Apple and Google. You can't even get Instagram or Pocket, which is a shame, because the 925 is a super-hot proposition until you realise you can only choose from 100,000 apps.
