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.

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

IOS is a media player that relies on apps to do ANYTHING. WP, android, Symbian, palm, Blackberry, Sailfish, these are OSes which are true smartphone platforms.

There is nothing wrong with software, it's just matter of preference, if I would buy phone it would be with WP. I don't really understand these fanboys wars, can't we just use the OS that we like and let others enjoy their phones? If someone bought iOS or WP maybe it's because he likes it, there is no need to bash him just because someone thinks that other OS is better.

I gave windows 3 on 10 because it is smooth,consistent and lag free. Agreed that windows marketplace hasn't got that many apps yet but more are being added everyday. The hardware in powerful but they should have added the 801 chip instead of 800

Get the 1520 instead, if you can live with the size; it's superior or equal in every way!

Its good phone and nothing wrong with software it is reliable,fast,smooth and has enough apps but it ain't perfect like nothings perfect in this world some draw backs are:- lack of games compared to ios and android lack of customization option especially if your coming from an android device and lack of google apps, of u love google apps like me u're gonna really miss them but there is alternative srevices by M$ closed platform, some people just don't like closed platform but u'll geylt used to it,im sure but i think u should wait a but more longer. successor for 1020 and 1520 will be arriving soon also many smartphones with different os are coming too like note 4 next iphone etc this not a bad device but many complaints about battery issue and some other lumia exclusive features are absent on this device.

Get the phone, honestly WP is an awesome platform and the 930 is great. Those here who you see is trying dissuade you from getting one don't listen to them, they are regular WP trolls. If you visit WP articles after a while you'll see their pattern of trolling. Here is a video of WP 8.1 vs the newest Android OS update Android L https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOj7eL2PG38 WP has changed the mobile landscape with its UI and 8.1 brought tons of features if your are a poweruser, look up reviews online for yourself. WP has Tons of Apps , you would be satisfied, the overwhelming majority of popular apps thats on the competing platforms are on WP and the very few that is not there third party client apps does a great job as an alternative so really you'll be good, there is a reason why the trolls will say WP has no apps but when it comes to telling us all the missing apps and games they don't back up their words, like i stated its cause the overwhelming majority of popular apps are there. Dive in to WP you'll have a great time, support choice.

Stop lying , WP can not even share anything via bluetooth unless you go manually turn it on then come back and find where you were then there you go now you can share. Plus windows is grandpa's system leave it to them

Look again, I share stuff via Bluetooth and NFC almost as often as o do via MMS and social media, and it's just as easy, all built-in. WP is the last modern OS and it shows, especially for sharing content.

I wouldn't give the hardware 10/10 either: 1. As it embodies and SoC which was released almost a year ago since its released date. Hence, not really the 'future proofing' the device. 2. The battery life is below average and scores appallingly on gsmarena's battery tests. Even according to PA, Z2 lasts twice as long in comparison to 930. 3. It doesn't record video at 60fps and also no 4k. 4. No accessible battery or memory card slot. 5. Not water and dust resistant. 6 The display is

*also pretty average which maxis out at 350 nits as against GS5 which goes all the way upto 600 nits. The plastic back isn't helping either.

Most reviewers says the screen is just a notch below the s5 in direct sunlight.

Can't tell with the 930, but I've seen the S5 next to the 1520, and the Lumia is leaps and bounds beyond the Galaxy... Clearblack ftw!

Wow, true fanboy. S5 has the best display on a smartphone currently.

Stop spreading lies kiddo ! Watch this comparison yourself rather then taking some fanboy troll on his word:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVm0D_IZz8U When it comes to Amoled, no one does it better then Samsung. Period
