Nokia Lumia 930 Review


Nokia has once again refreshed its Windows Phone lineup with the release of the Lumia 930, which is the spiritual successor to the Lumia 920 which first launched with Windows Phone 8.0 way back in November 2012. But like the Lumia 630, it takes cues...

The design of the phone is also striking, especially when equipped with the more vibrant green or orange backs. The aluminum frame around the outside certainly gives the phone a premium feel. The Corning Gorilla Glass has a fantastic coating applied to...

Nokia Lumia 930 review: like the Icon, but better


Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia is now bearing fruit, but as often happens when big companies merge, there aren't enough jobs to go around. More than

Top specs with strong performance to match ; Excellent display ; Fantastic camera ; Good battery life

Lacking in standout design features ; Premium price

The Lumia 930 is arguably the best Windows Phone on the market, with a brilliant camera and top-end specs. It's also an improvement over the US version, the Lumia Icon, thanks to broader LTE band support and a free wireless charger in the box.

Nokia Lumia 930 review: Iconic once again


It may be a new house, new rules - but no sharp movements just yet. In the aftermath of Microsoft's recent acquisition of Nokia's devices and services department, it's really anyone's guess what will happen with the Finnish company that was once at the...

Nokia Lumia 930 ( white)


If you're tired of seeing all those Samsung Galaxy phones and iPhones in everyone's hands and fancy something different -- a little more colourful maybe -- cast your eyes over Nokia's latest flagship. The Lumia 930 has a slick metal band running around...

The Nokia Lumia 930 has a crisp, bold display that makes Netflix shows look great, its camera is up there with the best and its metal and colourful plastic body will turn at least a few heads.

Its battery life doesn't impress, it's quite a chunky beast, Windows Phone 8.1 doesn't come with the Cortana voice assistant outside of the US and the platform still suffers from a mediocre app selection.

With its great display, brilliant camera and attractive, colourful design, the Nokia Lumia 930 has most of what you'd expect from a top-end Windows Phone device. It's battery lets it down though and with an unimpressive selection of apps still...

Nokia Lumia 930 Review


With a vivid, 5-inch, full-HD display; 20-MP camera; and a fast processor, the Nokia Lumia 930 is a powerful Windows Phone 8.1 device.

Nokia Lumia 930 and 630 review


Windows Phone isn't setting the world alight just yet, but it continues to show signs of promise in the cheaper end of the smartphone market. Microsoft knows this. It's why the first Windows Phone 8.1 device is a low-end Lumia 630. With Windows Phone...

Great display ; Windows Phone 8.1 improvements ; High-res photos

Bland bulky design ; Still lacks quality apps ; Slow camera performance

Too bulky and heavy to be a true flagship

Nokia Lumia 930 Review


Nokia Lumia 930 has most that is needed to take the Android flagships head-on, like a large 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and a 20 MP main camera, coupled with first-in-class Dolby surround sound...

Nice display with very good outdoor visibility ; Fluid and stable video footage with 3x lossless zoom ; Great soundtrack quality for videos ; Excellent call quality

Somewhat chunky ; Photos often have inaccurate colors ; Cumbersome nano SIM card format

We found the Nokia Lumia 930 to be an excellent Windows Phone device. Perhaps the biggest virtue of the 930 is that it finally packs Nokia's PureView camera goodness into a fairly compact and manageable format, coming with solid premium build but...

Nokia Lumia 930 review


Since Microsoft acquired Nokia's phone hardware business there's been some confusion about where things go from here. Take the Lumia 930, the top-spec Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone that we've been reviewing for the last few days: Microsoft has left the...

Great screen colour and brightness, decent camera, solid build quality, Windows Phone 8.1 most compelling it's ever been

Bit on the chunky side, top gaming apps lack, camera exposures can be off, Windows Phone 8.1 still has some catch-up to do

Nokia Lumia 930 review


A colourful handset that battles against Windows Phone

Good full HD display ; Aluminium frame ; Home-grown apps will improve

Interface still grates ; Older CPU ; Apps still need improvement

The Nokia Lumia 930 is the best Windows Phone yet – you'll probably read that across the web. But that's like saying it's the best seaplane: you'll really need some elements of it from time to time, and you'll be able to use it, but really you want...

Nokia's reclaim to fame


All of the things a smartphone should do, from phone calls to streaming a movie over 4G, the Lumia 930 will do without fault. It is Windows Phone refined, the quintessential incarnate of the promising software thus far.

Premium build, 20MP camera, Bing Health

No notification light, Limited camera modes, Windows Store has less apps than rivals
