I am used NL 920 since Dec-12. Just bought 930 yesterday. Its a great one, less weigt and brighter. Those critis of Windows phones don't have any experience using windows phone or rather down know to use it. Once used to it you will love it. Getting warm - yes when playing games and that has nothing to do to the phone. Afterall a mobile is not to play games continuously for hours unlike game consoles made for that purpose.
Can Any 1 suggest which one is better Lumia 1520 or Lumia 930 ?
As i am confused.!

Tadaah :D
Picked one of these phones up a week or so ago. I'm a huge Nokia fan so maybe a little bit biased! Had a Nokia Lumia 820 before this and this too was a great phone.
Build quality and design is sublime - the screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and is curved and in practice feels great very smooth and generally adds to making a great experience. The phone is finished with a aluminium band around its sides and a polycarbonate back (mine is bright orange!) this will make it more durable against scratches and any that do won't show as badly as a metal back. It also looks easy to replace the back of the phone should it get damaged. Also love the bright colours... but you can also choose from a more traditional black or white back!
One other thing to note about the phone is that it has (Like most other Nokia Lumias) a dedicated 2-stage camera button like a traditional camera (click half way to focus full to take picture). A small detail but if you take a lot of pictures and are a bit of a camera addict a much appreciated one.
The phone runs on Windows Phone 8.1 - which I really like. The live tiles are fantastic and give immediate updates to you require without touching or launching an app. In WP8.1 you get three columns of tiles and three different sizes giving you plenty of customisation options for your start screen. Also added in WP8.1 is the notifications screen which you drag down from the top of the screen much like Android/iOS. Nice addition although never really missed it from when I had an iPhone/Android phone but should make it easier for those that transition from either of these to the Windows Phone ecosystem!
Battery life is as good as any smartphone giving around a day per charge with average use. Call quality etc is great as expected!
Camera and optics are fantastic with Ziess optics (one of the main things that has always impressed me with Nokias phones).
Great phone - probably amongst if not *the* best device to experience Windows Phone 8.1 on at the moment.

Amit, 19 Aug 2014Thanks a lot aadrian.... Will definatly go for this device ....

Don't know if other shops in the UK like carphonewarehouse for example ship worldwide.

Aluminum gets warm quickly, as well as it gets cold quickly. But it's not that bad you can't hold the device anymore. So go for this phone, it's worth every cent.
