The Nokia Lumia 925 is an odd device – on the one hand, a bold design, on the other, debatable specs for a flagship phone.
Known as the “Catwalk” phone for a long time, this is the phone that some fans have been clamouring for: a Nokia Lumia that brings an aluminium design with the same innovative features.
However, it’s not all good news for the metal fans, as it’s still got a polycarbonate back as Nokia hasn’t worked out how to rock an all-aluminium chassis in the same way HTC managed with the One. Continue reading

A Reddit poster going by the handle Vizionx1208 says his Galaxy S3 suddenly caught fire recently and burned his finger.After claiming he hadn’t made any alterations or modifications to his Galaxy S3..he later described the horrific event as thus:
The victim going said that he plugged his Galaxy S3 in to be charged and about an hour later “was awoken by a loud noise and a weird squeaking sound.” That he, says, is when all kinds of trouble broke loose.
“So, I woke up, and saw a ton of smoke coming out of my phone — it also smelled REALLY bad,” he wrote. “Half asleep, I jumped out of bed and turned the light on, only to see that my phone was just beginning to go on fire. I dumped a glass of water I had in the room on it to stop it from burning…then woke up my brother to come help. The smoke smelled so bad and wafted through the entire second floor of my house.”
To backup his story, the poster shared a link to pictures of his white Galaxy S3 all burned up. He said that his foam mattress pillow top was burned, and because some of the plastic casing “was melting and kind of shooting out of it,” some of the debris landed on his finger and burned some skin off.
The poster claims that he made no modifications to the device and the software was not rooted. He ended his post with this: “Thanks so much for all of your comments and insight. The real big question here is — Do you think I have an actual legal case? As in, a product liability case. Or, do you think I’m better off taking what the PR team will give me?”
