Nokia Lumia 930 review - Pocket-lint

 

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.

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

The Lumia 930 is as close as we've got to Windows Phone's wow moment. But, in saying that, we're still on the fence about whether it's enough to lure new customers in.

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

Ratings in depth Windows Phone is going on four years old now – and it's still never had the standout phone that shows it's a platform that can compete with the iPhone and the best Android has to offer.

The best Windows Phone we've seen to date, but not quite the full monty

Good build Great screen Strong video performance Wireless charging Great camera

A little chunky Apps still need work Restricted file compatibility

The Lumia 930 is easily the best Windows Phone we’ve seen, with a gorgeous screen, great camera and video performance that easily competes with the best Android phones out there. However, we still want more from the apps side of things, and its file...

Nokia Lumia 930 review

 

If you didn't know, Microsoft now owns Nokia and is putting all its focus on the Windows Phone platform – no more Android-powered Nokia X devices. Windows Phone 8.1 has now arrived and flying the flag at the top-end is the Lumia 930.

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...
