Watch the Lumia 930 get organically charged by apples and potatoes
To mark the bundle release of Lumia 930 with free wireless charger in the UK, Microsoft tasked the artist Caleb Charland with creating the biggest organic charger in the form of an outdoor installation. More than 800 apples and potatoes went to create the amperage necessary for juicing a Lumia 930 via its wireless pad.

The installation is a giant wall of sorts, with hundreds of those food staples pinned to it, creating sufficient electric current to pump through Nokia's Qi wireless charging plate, and top off the Windows Phone flagship. A pretty ingenious publicity stunt that has surely made people talk about the Lumia 930 and its wireless charging abilities with relatively minor investment, especially if the huge organic charger became french fries and apple pie afterwards.

I'm considering this phone as my first WP device. But it's too thick and it has poor battery and no sd card slot. Should I wait Note 4 or get this beautiful phone? :/

If the note 4 is the alternative, you should definitely go for the 1520 instead of the 930...!!!

If you are looking at a note 4, then 1520 or 1525. The 930 is more akin to the s5.

Also here is a review that states otherwise about the battery.
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/mobile-phone/3510041/nokia-lumia-930-review/

SD card slot with 32gb on board? Meh just use one drive, you can play videos from one drive so no big, and with xbox music my 8gb of music at home is synced so i never eats up my phones memory which for me is a paultry 16gb.

Combined with the fact i have a office365 account that the family shares, that means each of the 5 users gets 1tb of storage. 1TB, so really right now other than apps, my phone is a 1.2TB storage streaming machine.

1. Any phone could be charged by potatoes.
2. Seems like a waste of apples and potatoes. Had the guy used dung, on the other hand...

but it's natural. Many people would believe it's a better way to charge your phone instead of plugging into a wall socket... or a portable charger. xD
