As far as I know if you have a 920, you are just fine. 925 is not a major major upgrade but sure it is faster. 

I even thought about going for 1020, however was not worth it to upgrade from a 920 for an incredible camera for me. That being said if I was to buy a new phone today, I would go for 1020.
I had a Nokia 920 on release. The original run had some issues with the Bluetooth module (It would overheat and drain the battery) Other than that, it was a great phone. I upgraded to the 1020 for the camera and was pleasantly surprised that it feels a bit faster in everyday operations. I have played with the 925 and it feels like the 1020 without the big camera.

And the 1020 camera - Really amazing pictures for a cell phone. I was blown away

Nice looking phone, im currently using a Windows Phone and I can't wait to get away from it.

I don't understand how people can say they don't care about apps, what's the point getting a 'smartphone' then? You may as well get a Nokia 3310 off ebay, they can make calls and send text messages.

The only reason I would consider another Windows Phone is because of the camera (on the nokia devices of course), but the Android competitors aren't actually that much different.

I personally care about apps but can not lure myself away from Lumia 920.

 

I am using my wife's Samsung Galaxy S4 sometimes to fool around and I feel the OS is extremely laggy.

 

Lumia 920 for me feels like an SSD while Galaxy S4 feels like an HDD.

 

That being said apps are coming in but Windows Phone really needs a year or more to have a good app library.

I can imagine that more apps will start to appear on the Windows marketplace now C++ is available. It will require much less work for developers to port their stuff.

Saying that though, it's like an old story now. I've heard that so many times and yet there still isn't a decent collection of apps on the Windows marketplace as developers just don't seem to bother with the Windows Phone, and why would they when many more people use iOS or Android.

As for a Galaxy S4 lagging, that would suggest there is a problem with the device in my opinion, or there are just a ton of things running in the background.

The main problem is the market share. The market share of Windows Phones are still at around 5% or so globally. However the impact of Lumia series and incredible photo options the Nokia phones are getting stronger. If  they can produce quality stuff and it the marketshare can meet at least 10% or so, than most developers will probably put more effort on Windows Phone devices. Windows Phones really do have a bright future but of course you never know how it can end up few years later.

 

I will check the background apps of S4 btw.

As market share goes up, so will the demand for apps. The latest version of Windows Phone isn't even officially a year old yet. I think they've done a respectable job at gaining market share and building out the platform. If they can steadily continue to climb the developers will follow.

The 1520 looks really tempting to me. The size is a bit intimidating though. I have a Lumia 920 and iPhone. Took some time for me to get used to the size of the 920. Can't imagine how the 1520 will feel. Imagine if they put the 41MP camera in that bad boy. This thing would be a beast.

As I'm searching Ebay for 1020s. I hate the mobile market right now. Can't buy anything and feel good about it for more than five minutes.
