Most folks have never bought a smartphone just for its camera, but if you compulsively shoot with your cell, the new Nokia Lumia 925 presents a solid case for itself with phone-based photos that are as accurate as those taken with a real rig. The aluminum and polycarbonate-bodied Windows phone has an 8.7-megapixel sensor with stunning low-light performance, a six-element Carl Zeiss lens, and a more complex set of optics than any other current smartphone camera – yep, even the iPhone. It comes with an app that can burst-fire 10 shots, allowing you to cherry-pick the best images or merge multiple frames into a single, optimized shot. For now, it's available on T-Mobile's network.
