Katy Perry and her film crew relied on the Nokia Lumia 930 for a music video shoot

Katy Perry and her film crew relied on the Nokia Lumia 930 for a music video shoot
Last September, we pointed out how pop star Katy Perry used the Nokia Lumia 1020 on the "Roar" music video. Nearly a year later, Perry used the Nokia Lumia 930 on her "This Is How We Do" video. The green casing of the phone fit in perfectly with the vivid colors that bombard your senses throughout the entire video. During the song, Perry used the Nokia Lumia 930 to Skype with a friend.

As it turns out, the Nokia Lumia 930 was not only used by the singer for the video, it was also employed by the production crew to make sure that everyone could be reached at a moment's notice. In fact, considering the brief amount of time that the phone actually appeared in the video, it looks like the high-end Windows Phone model got more play in the behind-the-scenes video.

So Miss Perry now joins the list of singers who have used a Nokia Lumia model in more than one video. That list includes Jennifer Lopez, who has used the Nokia Lumia 920, and more recently, the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.

Check out both the music video and what took place behind the scenes, by viewing the video slideshow below.

Wow! You guys are out of control.... But anyway... Ive used the iPhones and have ipads and yeah not to keen on the os.. The maps are mean though.... My friend has a galaxy s4 and he shows me all these tricks and custom things but I'm not into that stuff, in fact it was a bit sickning..( someone will hate on that no doubt )... i don't need that many apps... But i liked the size and screen... I don't game... Watch movies sometimes... Just mainly internet... And i was told that windows had better access to that as android didn't support some sites does that sound right..... I need excel.... But i also think the 930 looks amazing.... So thanks for all the input, it has made my choice alot easier

I can never understand why when making a call on a windows phone, once you press the phone tile, it goes first to contact then you have to press again before the number button comes out before one can make a call. Why can't it went straight to dialing numbers once the phone tile is press? That is why I will never buy a windows phone. Sometime it's the simple little thing that could make or break your decision.

Most Android users won't understand any OS but there own which has been deluded from being the top OS cause of the customization to being great cause it has more Applications of in it's App Store. I feel bad for Android and iPhone if the deciding factor on buying on is based on there Applications and Market share.... Remember picking Android and iPhone makes you a unique and special individual just like everybody else.

Wow,I'm finding it very difficult to stay on this site with all the BS that goes on here,I can't believe how people on here get into an uproar over which OS is the best etc,LOL. I come here to learn and see what's new,but this has become like kindergarden,but I guess Katty Perry knows what's best! ;)

Galaxy S5 would have been a better choice. It is the arguably best camcorder on a phone.

The Lumia 1020, Lumia 1520, Lumia 930/Icon and iPhone 5S are laughing out real loud on this stupid comment of yours.

Katie Perry and 50 cent were both given Lumia 1020 for free. Its the cheapest and fastest way to get free advertising for your hardware and platform.

Hardware wise the better sucks comparatively speaking. No expandable storage, and there's no double tap nor glance support (At least for the icon there wasn't). Software wise it depends. It's sort of like ios in that you maybe able to do something, but only in the limited ways that Microsoft wants you to. Though some people like that. I'd wait to see what other products are coming out. Around IFA is just about the worst time to buy a phone.

nothing is wrong with the software. WP is in its best iteration 8.1, making it on par with the other two platforms. Also, the store is rapidly evolving, firing all of its cylinders. It has reached 300k apps just after a few months of the 200k apps milestone. If gaming is not a top priority ( it has a very nice set of games, but iOS is the ultimate gaming mobile platform), then u will be very pleased with it

Add IMO. Also the 300k app store is filled with fake BS apps.

Oh please. At least 80-90% of android and ios' stores are clones and web page ports. WP's store is much more refined and has fewer copies, percentage-wise.

If you're a heavy gamer, then don't get it. Otherwise, all of the most popular apps on Android and iOS are present in the WP store. Also, if customisation is more your thing, then this might again not suit your needs. But if you want a reliable high end phone with super fast and smooth performance, great build quality and an OS than runs smooth and looks sexy doing it, and you want to receive software support for a long time, there's nothing better out there than the Lumia 930. Or you could always wait for the One M8 with Windows.

Your description also fits 5S, M8 GPE and OnePlus One perfectly.

"Runs smooth and looks good doing it"... Doesn't fit any Android. The last part REALLY doesn't fit iOS.

It depends on whether if you're biased or not.

It fits android perfectly and android looks cool doing it too... iOS on the other hand is great and do everything which it says it can do. Look at their fingerprint scanner , they implement it beautifully and it works great too... All these OS are great

The M8 GPE is not readily available everywhere in the world, so that phone is irrelevant, and even if it's a GPE, it definitely won't receive updates for as long as the L930. The iPhone 5S is a decent alternative, though the iPhone 6 is around the corner and it has a pretty small display for a flagship.

oh go to hll .. no they're not present .. companies release their apps in iOS and Play Store I never once saw an ad on tv or on a website stating download on windows phone store. many many apps are missing and the os is so limited, if I'd ever get an OS with such limitations why windows phone while i can get iOS full of apps and games . I won't do this but wp is in a terrible position and it's not 4% anymore it's 2.5% now down 78% from last year .. and these 2.5% mostly are low end lumia 520s/620s
