Q&A: Your questions answered on the Nokia Lumia 930

Over three months after it was first announced, the Nokia Lumia 930 has recently gone on sale in some parts of the world. Microsoft has most recently launched the device in the United Kingdom, and it will soon be available in many more markets.

Microsoft UK has kindly provided a Lumia 930 to us to try out, and we’ll be publishing a full review of the new flagship once we’ve given it a thorough shakedown and put it through its paces.

We’ve been using the device for just over a week, so we’ve had a bit of time to try it out and see what it has to offer. But before we publish our full review, we’d like to hear from you if you have any questions about the Lumia 930.

The device is near-identical to the Lumia Icon (or 929), which has been sold exclusively in the United States by Verizon since February. The Lumia 930 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) chipset with a quad-core 2.2GHz Krait 400 CPU and 450MHz Adreno 330 GPU, along with 2GB of RAM. 32GB of storage is included, but there’s no microSD slot to expand that if you run out.

Up front, there’s a 5-inch OLED screen with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, as well as a 1.2MP selfie-cam capable of recording 720p video. On the back, you’ll find a 20MP PureView camera with backside-illuminated sensor, ZEISS optics and dual-LED flash.

On the face of it, the Lumia 930 may not seem like the flagship that some may be hoping for. A quick glance at the spec sheet shows that Samsung’s Galaxy S5, for example, has a newer, faster processor; and the LG G3 has a larger, higher-resolution display. Both of these devices are thinner and lighter than the 930 as well; both include larger batteries than the 930; and both feature higher-resolution front cameras capable of capturing 1080p video.

But of course the spec sheet always tells an incomplete story about any device. That’s why we’re inviting you to ask any questions that you might have about the Lumia 930 in the comments below.

Please feel free to ask about anything related to the new handset and we’ll do our best to answer your questions. Bear in mind that we may not be able to answer certain enquiries immediately – we may need a bit more time to fully form impressions of battery life or performance, for example, but if there are any questions that we can’t immediately answer, we’ll make every effort to address them when we publish our full review of the device.

For now, though, it’s over to you: so, what would you like to know about the Lumia 930?


Thanks to everyone for their questions! This Q&A is now closed.
