Reviews for the Nokia Lumia 930

87% Nokia Lumia 930 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Everything remains different. Sleeker, faster, better. The Nokia Lumia 930 - the new de-facto Windows Phone 8.1 flagship device - tries to impress on many fronts. Many features are truly inspiring; others are not quite there yet. More about that in our detailed review.
80% Nokia Lumia 930 review: The best Windows Phone smartphone you can buy
Source: PC Advisor English
The Lumia 930 is a step in the right direction with its semi-metal design and decent hardware line-up. We like the screen and camera but it's lacking additional features and doesn't have expandable storage. Windows Phone 8.1 vastly improves things on the software side but the platform is still not a priority for developers – especially when it comes to third-party hardware.

Featuring Nokia's stellar ClearBlack screen and PureView camera technologies, a distinctive-yet-robust design and all the inherent enterprise perks of Windows Phone 8.1, the Nokia Lumia 930 is a great smartphone. Were it not for the Lumia 930's less-than-stellar battery life, the handset would be the second Lumia smartphone to achieve V3's hallowed five-star rating.

80% A colourful handset that battles against Windows Phone
Source: Techradar English
The Nokia Lumia 930 is a really great device that's hampered by a few too many elements, preventing me from lauding it as a truly standout handset. The main reason is still the same one I've been yammering about for a couple of years, and I'll say it again: Windows Phone is still not up the level of the rest of the competition, and that hampers any big gains made in hardware. Before anyone jumps straight to the comments to decry me as a fanboi of whichever other system, let me say this: I really like Windows Phone. In theory.

If you're a Windows Phone devotee, the Nokia Lumia 930 is easy to recommend. It's not a perfect phone, but it's definitely the best Windows Phone currently on sale. It's very fast and runs the latest version of Windows Phone 8, which adds some nice extra features. For everyone else, while it's an very accomplished phone, we're not totally convinced this is the phone that will convert people to Windows Phone. That's mainly down to the chunky design and underwhelming battery life, though the lack of HDR for the camera is another irritating aberration for a top-end phone.

The Lumia 930 is big, bold and has touches of brilliance. As much as it wows, though, there's still work to be done to truly set it apart from the competition. This is one that will divide the crowd, but is a device that can't be ignored for its positives and its aspirations. Whether it can be so highly praised in two months' time from now is another matter, but right now this is the best Windows Phone device that money can buy.

Nokia Lumia 930: We reveal this Windows Phone's one unique selling point
Source: Reg Hardware English
As if in recognition of this, the Lumia 930 comes with a decent two-week launch offer of a dinky Bluetooth speaker, a wireless charging plate and a £20 app voucher. Even after that, every 930 sold in the UK will include a wireless charging plate. So if you’re already in the Windows Phone world, it may be worth waiting until later in the year to see what Nokia-soft has up its sleeve. That said, the Lumia 930 isn't a bad device by any means. It has superb build quality and its corporate-friendly features could see it sell in decent numbers. You wouldn't grumble if you were assigned one.

If you're tempted by the prospect of owning a Windows Phone, then chances are you'll like the Nokia Lumia 930. It boasts a great, 5-inch, full-HD display; excellent camera; a host of useful Nokia apps; and an attractive, albeit bulky design. Just keep in mind that this phone isn't available directly from a U.S. carrier (at least not yet), and its battery life is slightly below average.

The Lumia 930 combine good size with the most comprehensive Windows Phone software to-date. We can't fault the hardware, with Nokia delivering a superb display and good camera. Battery life doesn't match devices like the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2, but few do. But if your business is tied into Microsoft's legacy apps, this is one of the best devices available.

If it’s Windows Phone you want, rather than a truly outstanding camera phone like the Lumia 1020, the Nokia Lumia 930 is the one you want: it’s a truly cutting edge piece of hardware only let down by Windows Phone 8.1’s limitations and lack of critical mass. That said, there are some seriously sexy Android alternatives this year, and Google’s operating system still has a major app advantage. Unless the Lumia 930 drops in price, and quickly, we’d go for the turbo-charged LG G3 every time, but this is a close second.

The Nokia Lumia 930 may not have the staying power of other Lumia devices, but for those who want the best Windows Phone 8.1 experience in a normal-sized handset, there's simply no competition. It doesn't come cheap, as contracts start from £33-per-month, but we wouldn't expect any less for a top of the range handset. With a fantastic screen, lightning fast performance and a great camera, the Lumia 930 is the greatest Windows phone yet.

Hands-on: Nokia Lumia 930 review

First impressions of the Nokia Lumia 930 are good. It's not the curvy phone that the 925 was, but it feels like a serious smartphone. We can't wait to really put it through its paces closer to launch on 17 July.

Nokia Lumia 930 review: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
Our first impressions of the Lumia 930 are positive - it’s a stunningly well-built handset and the small bezel means the 5-inch display doesn’t feel over the top. There’s no word on battery life and while Windows Phone 8.1 now feels like a true rival to Android it’ll be the day-to-day usage that will really show if this is Nokia’s best smartphone yet.
