I've been using this phone for about 4 years now and all I can say is that I'm absolutely impressed! No phone can even compare to this beast. It has a great camera with options that can really help you achieve that something, of course you need to understand what you're doing. The battery lasts pretty long and won't fail you in the last seconds. The screen is so vibrant, extremely durable and resistant (I'm a clumsy person and my phone falls on a daily basis but the screen is scratchless). I'm only sad that many applications are unavailable specifically for this model, it seems like a sabotage because the phone stands up to expectations and even more. Aftert four years the camera struggles with focusing a bit, the sound is silenter and the phone kinda lags here and there , but it's all so minor. Above all, I'm satisfied for it's all over simplicity, no annoying ads or weird popups. Just you, your phone and personalised color you choose to spark up that white/black layout.I forgot the add that the size fits in almost every pocket so you don't lose your phone while partying. I don't really know what phone I will buy when this phone dies..
This is such a solid phone, OS and hardware. Gave it to my mom and shes been using it for the last 2 years. Interface is miles ahead of Android and more control over your phone. The OS is just plain quality and so is the build. Unfortunately I changed over a year ago to Android due to certain apps I needed for work but still prefer Windows. The Win10 update was quirky, losing the native Radio app was .. stupid.. but you can download another fm radio app.
Asura375, 04 Dec 2018Guys i need help. I bought this phone today and tell me. Should i update to win 10 or stay on ... moreHowever personally I say stay on win 8.1. I believe it to be much more stable and efficient than 10.
Also you don't get many upgrades.

-Equalizer ( it controls all sound output so you can fine tune the system sound to your liking unlike Android that only can control your music player. It is pretty neat, however you can also snag the EQ from the MS store on your phone to.
NOKIA Lumia camera app will stop working if you update to the latest, will be replaced by Microsoft camera or something like that.
However I don't experience worse performance or anything like that, just don't update all the core apps that come with it, only the ones that are essential to run the phone.
Asura375, 04 Dec 2018Guys i need help. I bought this phone today and tell me. Should i update to win 10 or stay on ... moreYes, Windows 10 mobile is very good and you get more apps, as far as they are still supported. Many apps stopped support on WP 8.1, even Microsoft themselves. That means many apps are now only available on Windows 10 mobile. Besides you still get updates for Windows 10 mobile, I get even more updates on this phone than on my Galaxy Note8...

I do it manually by checking for updates every now and then.
Guys i need help. I bought this phone today and tell me. Should i update to win 10 or stay on 8.1? And why?
Aadrian, 10 Nov 2018Mine too. Since the update to Windows 10 mobile even the battery life improved on this phone. ... moreHi my friend,
I have just purchased a refurbish Nokia Lumia 930 through AliExpress and it supposes to be arriving next week. It is very interesting to learn about the battery life on 1709 (Fall Creators Update) but can you please advise how to get this version (as i knew that Creators Update was the last official update for this model?)
Is everything smooth on this version 1709 and no particular issue?
Thanks for your reply.
huggy, 09 Nov 2018My Lumia 930 runs very well Windows 10 (fcu 1709 ;-) I enjoyed its amoled screen, its camera.Mine too. Since the update to Windows 10 mobile even the battery life improved on this phone. And still receiving security updates, more often than I receive on my newer Galaxy Note8. All with all, very good phone if you don't demand many apps.

Don't upgrade. I still have the 930. It is laggy on 8.1.. oh dear, wait till you force install windows 10. Windows 10 makes 930 unusable, very very slow- it's a mess.
