“The Lumia 930 is the most complete Windows Phone to date. It’s the first to properly challenge the flagship might of Android and iOS with its impressive design, new Windows Phone 8.1 software and all round decent specs.”


“The Finnish handset maker’s flagship devices are a shoe-in for the title of “best Windows Phone handset.” And, spoiler alert: that title certainly applies here.”


“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.”

“As for the rest of the hardware, the Lumia 930 has a 2.2GHz quad-core processor from Qualcomm, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. This is a spec sheet that can more than compete with the cream of the Android crop.”

Digital Spy

“This is the big one. The handset everyone wanted. A phone which finally stands up to the specifications of the top Android phones and proclaims the arrival of Windows Phone 8.1 as a heavyweight operating system which can go toe-to-toe with anything from Apple or Google.”


“With all the benefits of Windows 8.1 the 930 really is a pleasure to use with its cool, if slightly dizzying floating backgrounds and extra row of tiles. The WordFlow keyboard works seamlessly, which is excellent news for typo-prone smartphone users out there.”

“The 930 has a 20-MP PureView camera with an f/2.4 lens and backside illuminated sensor. I like that you can easily go from fully automatic mode to manual just by pressing the menu at the top. It’s a feature other phone makers would do well to copy.”
