Anonymous, 29 Jul 2014Lumia 1520 has best battery life. No Android can match.Ascend Mate 2
This phone Nokia Lumia 930 has very low connectivity.
The phone misses LTE-A cat6, ANT+, IR Port, Bluetooth 4.1, Usb 3.0, Slimport, mHDMI, MHL, USB Host, USB Otg. Theres no chance to join USB flash, keyboard, mouse, projector, Tv...using USB port. This phone doesnt communicate with memory cards, smartbands, smartcars, smartwatches...
Even a large number of low end phones has better connectivity.
Mark, 29 Jul 2014Very poor battery life, no match for Android.Lumia 1520 has best battery life. No Android can match.
Ron, 29 Jul 2014You opinion is style over substance. Actually a lot of Android devices are like that. Samsun... moreUnfortunately, now I have to ask you: what substance? Style it has not, substance it has to work on a lot...
I dont use Samsungs, they down the android user experience...so in the end some people even conclude WP is better somehow. But it just isnt.
Why are we still getting these mediocre phones. Would have thought with MS running the show we get some worthy flagships. How about something to compete with the upcoming Note 4 from Samsung ?
darkraver, 28 Jul 2014Other than still photo and screen, not a good phone.... That battery life is a monstrosity...... moreYou opinion is style over substance. Actually a lot of Android devices are like that. Samsung has made a world class business of multiple mobile devices within a price range that just miss out on a specification or hardware in importance.
AnonD-202882, 28 Jul 2014Nokia will never do Android. Great phone! Not gimmicky like Android OEMs. I'm fine with the ba... moreNokia X, XL and X2? Those are running Android with the crappy tiles launcher over them, which is a shame. And ditching IP5 for this platform will be your biggest mistake. You will understand when time comes....
"Overall, the endurance rating came out to 46 hours, which means that you'll be able to last just under two full days if you do an hour's worth of video playback, calling over a 3G network and web browsing per day."
Not bad battery at all. Windows Phone has built in battery saver mode anyways.
" Despite appearances, the back panel is non-
removable, so you won't be able to access the
2,420mAh battery inside without taking it in."
main reason not to buy this device.
i was so enthusiastic for it for quite long and started to read the review in a breath, ... until the battery life test. with less than 6 hours of web browsing this phone is useless, i hate it. couldnt this have same battery as 1520 for as being thicker? skipping and waiting for a real deal
best way to order any android (lagdroud) base company for making ur ideal mobile.....
Having no UHD recording as a disadvantage, in my opinion, is totally unnecessary. Not everyone wants 4K you know...
@gsmarena I don't know wich 925 you tested, but mine is not all-aluminum. Back plate is also polycarbonate like it is on 930.
Nokia should make a phone like this run Android, the Nokia X didnt have great specs but attracted some Android fans. If they make a Lumia 930 running the Android OS, they could be competing against the likes of Sony or even HTC. I would buy it for sure. But as long as these phones are running WP, the Lumias will always just be cameras to me.
