Jiri, 30 Jul 2014How to 'kill' sales of a kind good new phone? Lumia 930 is or would be probably one of the bes... more1) With 32GB on board and 7GB free cloud storage, that is more space than the vast majority of people use anyway. My last phone had 16GB and I didn't use it all up. I would have preferred a card slot but with WiFi everywhere now and advances in cloud storage it's not an issue.
2) Who needs a glance screen? If I'm looking at the screen it's because I'm using the phone anyway.
3) 4K videos are a complete waste of time anyway unless you have a 4K screen to play them on, so unless you're going to buy an expensive telly to play your home movies on you won't even miss it and on a small screen like a mobile phone you're unlikely to be able to tell the difference anyway.
Nokia, 28 Jul 2014This buggy Nokia must cost under 300 $ with it's expired specs and poor battery and heavy weight!No bugs on mine, runs perfectly and is super smooth. I have no objections to carrying a few extra grand around thanks to superior build quality and as for the excited spends and poor battery, some people just don't get that the Windows OS doesn't user as much power as anything else, it can't run any faster than it does! Battery is fine by the way and lasts at least as long as anything else I have had. Why not get your head out of the sand and just try one instead of sniping just because you have nothing better to do, you're simply making yourself look foolish.
Allerton755, 28 Jul 2014I have no problem editing mine! Are you sure your spreadsheets are not in protected mode or so... moreI have sent the same spreadsheets to an iPhone and Galaxy S5, both using an office app, and they were able to be edited and saved - no problem.
It is this ridiculous Mobile Office on the Lumia 930 that is the problem.
Nokia / Microsoft have failed miserably with their own software and hardware, and the sooner they wake up to their feeblemindness the better for their sales.
I guess I will have to wait for the iPhone 6 or plunge into Galaxy S5.
wilson, 30 Jul 2014Went to purchase a set..and found that it is not coming with a headphone - it is not included ... morewas never included. In some markets you would get a wireless charging pad but I didn't even get that. I got just the phone and charger plus USB cable.
Amazing build, great OS and usability but little useful apps, horrendous retail package, poor battery and ... no SD ?
How to 'kill' sales of a kind good new phone? Lumia 930 is or would be probably one of the best phones available, BUT:
1) One of the most cons is the missing (micro) SD (XC) card reader / is 32GB really enough for everybody? We heard something similar in past, right... I can't understand the policy of not having this feature.
2) No Glance Screen? Sad. Just one more reason to skip this model.
3) FullHD video is good, but the most recent competition models also can make 4K videos, would be nice for Lumia as well.
And final note not to this model, but to Windows Phone OS in general - while still using Symbian Belle, and started with Windows Phone, I could not believe how the MS OS is simple and actually quite user unfriendly - comparing to Belle. Just an example - on Belle, home screens have a kind of applets, one of them can display most recent 3 messages of email right inside the applet icon (can see it without doing anything).
Another one, downloading/installing maps for Here (Nokia Maps) on WP is really ridiculous - must wait on the download screen opened and can't even switch to other app, otherwise the download is killed. Belle? It works simply in background!

Cause there r many comparative videos nd reviews. U must check those before commenting anything. Plz just dont comment anything. Cameras r always best in Nokia. If u really want to compare then sony would be the other best option available in android. By no way camera of samsung or Iphone comes near by.
Purchased just over a week ago now... and absolutely loving it... everything about it just oozes class.
chris, 29 Jul 2014What a load of shit. Clearly you know nothing about mobile photography.He is just a hater. Never used Pureview camera before.

banner, 28 Jul 2014why it doesnt have headphone?Because free headphone sound like crap.
No memory card slot, and only 2GB of RAM instead of 3GB.
too bad, that both are missing (Card Slot + 3GB RAM) in this device.
This phone gets fantastic reviews all round. Its a pleasure to use.
Battery Life: S4/S5/iPhone5s vs L930/925
1. Gsmarena - cca 2x BETTER web/video for S4/S5/iP
2. Notebookcheck - cca 2x BETTER web for L930/925
wifi surfing S4(8h53m), S5(10h13m), iPhone5s(10h)
According to Notebookcheck the battery life of L930 is "phenomenal".
Where is a trick?
