It also comes with a fine AMOLED display that has decent image quality, and great outdoor visibility.

Reviews Word on the street for the Nokia Lumia 930

The mobile Internet Explorer 11 browser has been updated in WP 8.1 to be faster and with tons of new features, though.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


True to its traditions, Nokia supplied a display with excellent outdoor visibility, and then threw in manual color mode adjustments for a good measure.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
You have several display modes to choose from, like cool, vivid and advanced, with the latter letting you play around with color temperature and saturation sliders, until you've reached the desired results.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Nokia's ClearBlack layer on top of the display comes to improve the screen reflectivity and we can attest that the Lumia 930 performs great in terms of outdoor visibility.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)


The minimum focus range for the camera's macro shots is pegged by Nokia to be about four inches (10 cm).
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Perhaps the biggest virtue of the 930 is that it finally packs Nokia's PureView camera goodness into a fairly compact and manageable format, coming with solid premium build but without bulk protruding on the back.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
The lock key, as well as the volume rocker above it, and the two-stage camera shutter button are very ergonomic, easy to feel and press without looking, and with a deep tactile feedback.

The light and springy Windows Phone OS is not an issue for this processor, as are all other apps in the Windows Store, including 3D games.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
For music, Nokia’s MixRadio is traditionally a great option for enjoying tunes on the go.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Windows Phone 8.1 is now a mature and functionally rich mobile OS, to which Nokia adds a laundry list of exclusive apps like HERE Maps and MixRadio.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)


In addition, the screen-on time when browsing or watching videos is pegged at 9 hours, which is a good testament to the phone's longevity.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
The 2420 mAh battery seems a tad smallish in capacity, when we consider that most Android flagships border or cross the 3000 mAh line these days.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
In our demanding test, however, the phone lasted just four and a half hours of screen-on time, which is certainly unimpressive.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)


It is also pretty conducive to pictures and video editing, and the Microsoft-Nokia duo are supplying free apps with rich functionality for both of those undertakings.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
To top it all off, you can take advantage of an even higher lossless zoom count when shooting video – up to 3x enlargement – which should cover most of your holiday photography needs.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Interestingly enough, when the surround sound option is on, the 930 records a stereo stream as well, so you can pick and choose afterwards, when previewing or editing the video.
