Sadly it does sound normal for the 925 and a lot of other devices when playing games:
As expected, these values increase under full load, up to 47.0 °C in
the case of our test device. Thus, the Lumia 925 gets rather hot
If it is actually physically painful to touch the device, then it might be worth trying to exchange it for another one or a different ...
Well, as I said I would use double tap to turn on the phone, I currently use it on L930 and I had used it before on a Lumia 925
Also, I have searched your question and bellow is the answer:
How can I make my Lumia 950 XL screen timeout after "never"?
Check so there is nothing that covers the proximity sensor. The purpose is to blank the screen when you hold the phone to your ear while in a call.
My dad had the exact same problem and he put a small piece of tape over the sensor (since the SIM card hatch didn't stay in place). Ones I removed the tape it worked great.
The timing has to be quite good - you have to press volume up and power at the same time - if the presses are too far apart in time, it will treat the press as the first button you pressed, rather than taking a screenshot.
Office on Windows Phone will be automatically connected to the OneDrive that belongs to your primary Microsft Account (the same one you use for store downloads).
To change where a document should be saved simply create a new document -> then open the app bar at the bottom -> select "save to..." and choose phone or OneDrive. If you choose to store the file ...
Several reasons what is wrong:
The device is locked to be used only for specific SIM
The device is set up to manually search and register to another network (other than T-Mobile)
Settings - Network + SIM - Setting of SIM - Search automatically for network
The SIM is somewhat wrong (blocked, or inserted wrong way)
Micosoft has acknowledged the problem and promised to release a fix soon.
PS: Will update this answer as soon as i get news of the fix.
This is actually a feature, not a bug. Your notebook recognizes that your phone is near and that you could start internet sharing without explicitly activating it on your phone. For this your phone Needs to be paired with your notebook through Bluetooth. As long as you're not connected to the phones Wi-Fi tethering will not be activated.
Here's some more ...
Both the Lumia camera and the stock camera app record Videos as .mp4 files.
Here are the specs reported by MediaInfo (stripped of all irrelevant data like duration or date and of course some of it depending on settings)

As Apoorv mentioned you could try and make a reset. But before that you should:
Check if there is another update available. Including installing and running Upgrade Advisor from Store.
Remember to have backup activated before you do.
Take note that there are two kinds of resets that you could do: Hard and Soft (always try soft first). You can read how to do ...
Go to here: https://account.microsoft.com/devices and click on "Find my phone". Then click "Lock". Enter a new Lock code to lock your phone with a code you know. Then go back to the phone to unlock it with the new code. This also overrides the delay. This only works of course if your phone has a working internet connection.
Yes it is true that you can use messenger app without a facebook account but the WP app does not support that functionality. You may consider creating a facebook account. That's not a very big deal. Otherwise you can't use messenger
Lumia Software Recovery Tool is very outdated. You should be using the current version of the software, which is the Windows Device Recovery Tool. I've had good success using this tool with a wide range of devices, including a 925. Nonetheless, be aware that it can only fix stuff that boils down to code/data problems (bad firmware, file system corruption, ...
if you want to keep the screen to never turn off, such an option is only available in interop unlocked phones. tutorials are available on winphonehub.org . but, i seriously recommend you to not do such things as it might damage your device.
It may take a little practice, because you can't hold one button and then press the other, even for a millisecond.
I use two hands, and click both the power button and volume up button together rather firmly at the exact same time, as if it'one.
I also experience the same issue on my Lumia 930 which I bought in April 2015.
Turning the WiFi off and on solves the issue.
Hopefully when we upgrade to the latest OS this issue will be eliminated.
Had a Lumia 520 before this one and I was not experiencing any issues.
I've found a resolution here; http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/winphone/forum/wp7-wppeople/keyboard-freezes-after-adding-a-space/1d4b902d-f776-4183-993a-b4b6f0560d98
If you disable the 'suggest / correct' words in keyboard settings it will work again.
No there default password. Could someone else have set it? Did you buy it from someone?
The only way to access the phone if you can't figure it out is doing a hard reset.
(I'm assuming you're not taking about the Microsoft account but the lockscreen pin)
If the battery life was working great, then it suddenly changes; the most likely cause would be an app or apps that are running in the background and draining the battery.
Run the Battery Saver app. It will show the apps in the order of their usage. Which apps have the highest usage? The Battery Saver app will show foreground and background usage.
In the past, I've resolved this by going into Device Manager, right clicking, and selecting "Uninstall" on all the phone related options in the "Portable Devices" and "Universal Serial Bus devices" sections. Then unplug the phone, and after you've rebooted, and logged back on, you can plug the phone back in, and it should reinstall using the updated drivers ...
Yes it is common for Lumia 925 (in case for most of the devices) while in Lumia 925 it happens very frequently but after reaching a particular temperature it seems constant. If its not your case then better get it exchanged but before that I would suggest following things:
Turn off your WIFI or Internet connection if not required.
Turn off other apps which ...
Yes! It is!
All devices that has a processor may become hot when you are playing games or when you browse internet for a long time.
It has a built-in anti-heat damage system so you don't have to worry about the temperature...it will freeze again in 2-3 minutes if you end up playing games or if you leave it for some minutes.
Your battery may not be ...
