Very good for everyday use

I have switched from Galaxy S5 to this one. Works a lot smoother, less buggy, more user friendly (especially calendar integration), much better battery lifetime. No annoying lights blinking and at sounds at night because the battery is full. Also the camera is faster. No way I am ever switching back to Android.

Good hardver, HQ!

Only battery could be better. Everything else is excellent, well done and really impressing...
Also, Windows Phone 8.1. is something fresh with corrections needed to be done in relation to the previous versions of OS...
Excellent things are: camera, maps, display, build quality...

Best phone I have ever owned !
KenAdams has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Just got myself a green 930, and I have to say that this is the best smartphone I have ever owned. Its so fast and fluid. Loving the WP 8.1 UI. And i found all the official apps i used on my S3 in the WP store. The design of the phone is sexy. And the green color looks sick ! BEST PHONE EVER !!

Good hardware, and step forward for WP8.1.

I changed from HTCTitan (WP 7.8) to this Lumia 930 . Could not wait for HTC to build new WindowsPhone.
The WindosPhone 8.1. is huge step forward from older WP. Seems polished OS.
The Lumia 930 seems solid built. Despite bulky look and the real dimensions, it fits well into the hand. I`d say, it feels less bulky, than holding Sony`s Z or Z1 in the hand.
I have doubt about the Lumia`a 930 SIM slot - it opens too easy - if phone fells or rocks hardly, the sim could be lost.
The camera and attached apss are amazing. Noka really has given additional value to the products, with Nokia`s own apss as the NokiaCamera, here Drive, etc.
The largest con: the device heats up. Not too hot, but really warm in the lower part of device (where You usually hold it in the hand). Really uncomfortable.
The display settings do not allow to dim enought. In darkness the screen still looks too bright.

One of the best phone I had. Perfect camera, you can not believe it comes from device. Fluid OS. I had no problem with finding apps. Only negative is battery, in need to charge it in car every day and phone becomes hot fast.

Better than iPhone 6 for less Money!
asgeirasgaut has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
This phone is by far the best phone I have ever had the chance to own. The only thing that lacks is the App selection which doesn't really matter to me because all of the main apps are available such as YouTube, Netflix, IGN, Hulu, etc. This is one solid phone, it feels like a lot of effort was put into the build quality. I really love the beveled glass on the screen. It makes the phone look and feel better than other phones. It gets great reception as well. It was pretty easy to see how much better it is because my fiance gets dropped calls consistently in certain spots in town (I did with my old phone too). It was as reliable as gravity in those spots. My Lumia 930 very rarely gets dropped calls in those areas! The call quality is great too, it is easy to hear on both ends of the spectrum (you and who ever you call). Internet browsing is also amazingly crisp and smooth, its even better than my Samsung Tablet 2 10.1!!! You can easily stream music and videos in 1080p, I can tell the picture quality is way better than previous/current phones. The camera is 20 megapixels, so tue pictures look astounding. Not only that, but this camera has a wide array of selections for how to take the picture. The video is surprisingly good quality too. Especially considering that there are 4 microphones placed all over the phone so you can get a surround sound effect to your videos. The user interface is incredibly easy to use and looks great. Keep in mind that if you have never owned a windows...

My first WP! At first i had doubts about changing from Android to WP, but in time my phone proved to me that it is my most important partner. Microsoft provides great apps for every task and the collaboration between hardware and software is the best!

My First WP smartphone
sljivan has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
My last phone (like many others) was Nokia with Symbian OS - E7. So I was looking for a new OS since Symbian is one and a half foot in the grave, but I didn't want to give up on some known Nokia qualities, so decided to stick with it and was NOT dissapointed.
Before Lumia I had a chance to try Android and disliked very much the necessity of internet and google access.
Some of the things from symbian I miss (like much less customisation is available, dictionary for symbian was a killer,...), but then I am reasonable user. I got some other things I didn't have on Symbian (speed, much more apps, sensors work better...).
Today I am pleased with this phone. Like it very much and use it gladly.
It is robust, very good built, amazing display and camera, very good battery, enough space on phone (and cloud). Watching movies on it is some experience.

Nokia Lumia 930

Definitely an overall improvement, build, finish, OS enhancements, camera - all top notch and premium feel. The screen is just immense, easy to view in high sunlight, wide viewing angles, awesome colours and brightness.

Was an Apple fan then switched to a Samsung AITV windows phone. For business I prefer the windows operating system, however, wasn't impressed with the Samsung. Just purchased the Nokia 930 (online as it is not available in Canada) and absolutely love it!
The case is comfortable and doesn't feel like it is going to slip out of my hand like other phones. There is a little bit of weight to it, but again I prefer that because the lighter phones feel too flimsy to hold onto. The screen is excellent,. Very clear and bright, (no problem in bright sunlight). The UI is fast, and easy to use. With the ability to change the background picture, in my opinion, it is far more esthetically pleasing than any of the Android or Apple phones. As far as comments about games, I don't use my phone for games so this really doesn't matter to me. I do hope however, that some of the home automation software developers take note and build software for this platform I think that with Blackberry now gone, this phone will definitely turn some heads in the business community. Too bad it won't roll out in Canada or the USA, which I think is a big mistake on Nokia's part. I would definitely recommend this phone to others.

Windows - getting there
billy3010 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The 930 comes with windows 8.1 installed and at last, the platform is acting and looking like a proper OS. I adore Nokia phones, especially the Lumia range. The 930 is solid, classy and feels premium. The 5" HD screen dominates the front of the phone and with Nokia's design, it looks like an infinity screen - seamless from edge to edge.
