Part4.2nd attempt. Camera after several updates(running on 8.1 update2) is really fast but still bit slower than note4. Qualitywise i would also give the trophy to note4. Lumia pictures have more colours though and also depending on the environment. Great pictures overall! So why i am using 930:portability,fm radio,smoothness,superior call quality, outside readability,fast ecosytem,great keyboard,camera.
I use mostly the microsoft ecosystem (onedrive, one note etc)which works perfectly on android as well(except outlook on adroid which sometimes buggy).and..no final office lens for note 4 yet.sometimes however i feel google drive is faster when downloding items.. but on lumia you does not need to care about cash deleting force closing etc.very user friendly and simple operating system,like ios.also there is a win app for copying my sms and contats data between adroid and win.

If you choose the video, with Lumia Moments app you can extract the the right moment of the video you want as a picture. Sorry for my English, hope this will help you to snap the photo you want.
Part 3.i use fm radio a lot which i miss very much on note4:(. Form factor:this phone is heavy and feels bulky compared to note4. The side is not rounded but sharp edgy and does not feel good holding in the hand after 30 minutes. Also it sometimes warms like hell(charging,browsing on LTE) and since i am using my phones withot cases it feels very uncomfortable...never happed on my note4..i am obviously not comparing size and s pen which hopefully will arrive in some form with the new flagship lumia in september.
Win8 is way superior and smooth than android 5.0.1 period.no lag nothing at all. Although i have to note that the animations sometimes feel to slow it would be good to have the possibility to reduce this time like on android.never a problem with email receiving sending (as opposed to outlook on android).all the apps I need is working perfectly and you have a feeling like on ios that the whole system is one "entity" and not pieces of items forcefully put together like android...
hi there.i am using this phone from 2014 september along with my note 4 (since 2014 october) so I can pretty much compare the 2 devices.so start with battery life.standby time is awesome but if you use the screen(internet/games) it will not last more then 3.5 max 4 hours compared to easy 5-6 hours on note 4.Before i got note 4 i had no problems with the screen but definately feeling the superiotity of note 4 now. Outside readability however is way better on 930.phone call quality is way superior than on note 4.charging time is way better on note4 however using note 4 set it is done within 1.5 hour though.operating system:to be followed..

tarun, 19 Apr 2015HEY GUYS could someone help me how is the speed on this device does it ever get lagging after ... moreWindows phones in General, have much higher performance and battery backup compared to Samsung phones. All the apps can be un-installed, so No default apps will consume your battery. If you want real battery back for more than 2 days, go for Lumia 1520 or 1320. but it's much bigger.
I have used the Lumia 930 for a few months now. Overall it is a good phone. It is heavy (I used a 920 before so it is still lighter than my previous phone but generally heavy and I ma not sure why). The 20mp camera is not convincing. It is slow to focus so by the time I take good pictures I have taken 3 not so good ones before. HDR(or what is called "rich capture") only works super well if you are dead still. Apple and Samsung take pictures that are just as good but take a shorter time to get good quality pics (I realized this when i was trying to take a picture of a dolphin as it jumped out...i had to hope it jumps out again). The processor is brilliant (I think the OS works with less power so this one makes it super smooth). I have to point out that the phone, again, is generally great and would buy it again if given the opportunity. No phone is perfect but I can happily say that the 930 is an improvement from the 920 which is also a brilliant phone.

John, 18 Apr 2015I made a 1 minute and 30 seconds of a video and put it in the onedrive. In order to download i... moreYou should check with which resolution you made the video. Go to your camera, click the cogwheel (settings), swipe to video and check the resolution. For fast uploading and downloading/streaming, choose one of the 720p resolution options (fps=frames per second, so more pictures per second and clearer image, but also more data).
If you leave it to 2160p/30fps, you are shooting a 4k video, which produces HUGE data files. Not good for storing in the cloud if you have limited space.
I've just started to use the Lumia 930.
There is a learning curve to get comfortable with the phone. Some features like Cortana need improving.
Nevertheless, the Lumia 930 is an excellent product from every aspect and superior by a long margin to the iPhone6 in particular software interface.
