Microsoft’s Windows smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 930 is featured with AMOLED Technology protected by a Gorilla glass display. The Lumia 930 measures about 5.0 inches with a rendering resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at 441 pixel density. Lumia 930 is powered by the Quad-core processor Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with 2 GB of RAM. The OS is lighter on the resources like multitasking and graphic intensive games which promises a fantastic user experience.

Its glossy, colorful plastic back has an added metallic frame around the edges covering the rounded corner, making a curved back which gives a proper grip for keeping handy. This Handy Indicator’s appearance is adorned with aluminum metallic rim, which gives a very solid feel with a premium look. The feature, it is easier to press buttons. The volume rocker,the power button and the camera shutter button all are lined up on the right side which is as similar as to most Lumia devices. Nokia Lumia 930 is featured with Sensor Core technology, which logs information in a device just like steps count tapped via Fitness app. The Glance Screen feature is omitted in the Lumia 930, due to the particular AMOLED screen when double tapped to wake is available which is a little bit disappointing.

Nokia Lumia 930

Nokia Lumia 930 primary camera is decked with a 20 MP, with features like Carl Zeiss optics packed with optical image stabilization, autofocus, dual–LED flash and alias. For example, if the user shoots in the auto mode of 5 mp, it takes only 2-3 second to focus, the device automatically takes the shot, saves it and gets ready for the next snap. This functionality is also seen while shooting 5 mp videos  and full resolution snap of 19 mp. Also, the secondary camera is only 8 mp which is an unbeatable feat for Nokia rivals. The handset comes with a 2420 mAH battery which lasts long with 15 hours and a half of talk time, which again is a little underwhelming.

The snaps taken during daylight are brilliant, but if snap with full resolution are zoomed, it reveals some noise which is the reason why Nokia is saving high quality images in the default 5 mp mode. The four High Amplitude Audio capture microphones surrounded to it’s body gives a rich recording with an option of directional stereo, emphasizing the sound from objects around you. The recorded sound quality is marvelleous – even in a noisy environment!

Best Windows Smartphone

Lumia 930 is packed with 32 GB internal storage, which again is a godsend feature, as it suffices the need of most of the users but, the microSD slot is not expandable which is a drawback. The best part of this phone is its aesthetic design and build quality with no compromises made in feature specimen along with such a great camera. The con of this device is, there is no memory expansion, moreover, the glance screen is not available. Nokia’s PureView camera adds a goodness factor fairly to compact size. It’s cheaper compared to other Android flagship smartphones.

The unlock version of Nokia Lumia 930 is available on Amazon for $500. Reportedly, Microsoft is preparing to launch Gold edition handset in china for Lumia 930 and Lumia 830 in china, which will be soon followed in other markets.
