I am pretty much ATTACHED to my phone (much to Daddy Russ’ annoyance). So much of my work revolves around my phone though and my life got so much better when my new Windows Phone came in to my world. Without the mobility and capability of my Nokia Lumia 925 Windows Phone I’d be stuck in my office all day every day. This summer it’s been incredibly useful throughout traveling, when we are hanging by the pool or just enjoying time with the family.


First off…this phone is sexy and sleek! It’s thin, lightweight and black and will be the perfect accessory for all your days and nights on the town.


The absolute BEST part of the Windows Phone is that it supports Windows 8.1. This means that this phone is like no other! You can customize it for whatever your needs are from checking email, playing games, taking photos, accessing Microsoft Office and much more.


One of my “can’t live withouts” is being able to access OneDrive. I can save any of my documents in my OneDrive and access them from any device. This is great when you are traveling and need to access itineraries, reservations and more.


You can even set up a “Kid’s Corner” so that you don’t have to worry about the littles accidentally erasing your contacts or charging up your bill! For information on how to set-up your Kid’s Corner click here.


The phone also features an impressive 8.7-megapixel PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics. It is BY FAR a better camera than the other phones I’ve owned. It also has a duel LED flash for better low lighting photos.


More amazingness about this phone is CORTANA! Cortana is your personal smartphone assistant and is powered by Bing. Cortana gathers all types of information about you including favorite people and interests, patterns and behaviors. She can do all types of things including setting reminders and answering questions. Not to mention she so far has predicted EVERY World Cup elimination (click here to read more).


I really like the 4.5-inch HD+ display and it also has a quick 1.5 GHz Dual core processor.


The battery lasts for about 17 hours and also has nifty wireless optional charging.


All in all it’s my new technology baby!!! I highly recommend trying out one. I think you will fall in love!

    That’s my phone! I’ve had it since it came out and love it. I’ve even used it internationally. And the quality coupled with the price point, especially compared to the iPhone, makes it a total steal.
