TechSpot: Nokia Lumia 930 Review

The majority of Nokia/Microsoft’s smartphone business focuses on mid-range and entry-level products, with devices like the Lumia 520 proving especially popular. However, every year the company releases a few flagships to compete with the likes of the iPhones, Galaxys and Ones, usually in several form factors to attract a range of buyers. Last year, for example, we saw the release of the Lumia 925, the large-screened Lumia 1520, and the 41-megapixel Lumia 1020.

Today I’m reviewing the Nokia Lumia 930, which is the company’s standard flagship and successor to the Lumia 925. You might notice that this handset looks very similar to the Lumia Icon the company released earlier this year exclusively on Verizon, and that’s because it's essentially the international version of the Icon, packing Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box.

The hardware inside the Lumia 930 easily competes with the latest Android devices. You get a large, 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, and Nokia’s signature 20-megapixel PureView camera.

If I was in the market for a new WP right this second I'd probably go with the 930 because I think the 1520 is a bit too big even for me at 6". I'd have to use it first hand though, so I'd have to see it in a store, but I believe 5" is the sweet spot for my needs, or maybe 5.5" tops.

I don't know man. I mean if we're going with just looks then that HTC looks damn purrty: http://i.imgur.com/M1MkL7W.jpg

If only it had the camera and support that comes with Nokia devices.

Exactly, the camera and the overall support with apps and updates that you get with a Lumia makes the 930 a better offer compared to the HTC One M8, though the HTC does edge it out on specs.
