    Having owned a 920, 925 and 930 and some other non lumia's like the HTC 8x and the Samsung ActivS, my last and most fantastic device was the Nokia Lumia 930, which ive dropped in favour of the Android system, but now I am returning to WP, but cant work out what phone would be best for me...

    The Nokia 930 was almost perfect, apart from its resoundingly poor battery life.

    Important to me is battery life, performance and approx 5" good quality screen with 300ppi or greater, nothing larger.

    Second is possibly removable interchangeable batteries, gaming performance and camera quality

    Lastly and not so important, weight, colour, price.

    All you mentioned above specifically Lumia's were former flagship phones. Unless you want midrange (Lumia 830) or low end (Lumia 640/XL). For other OEMS idk.

    Lumia 830? Might be weaker than the 930 but comes with microSD Slot, removable battery so you can just buy a spare one to have enough battery all the time...

    Lumia 640 and 640 XL are not low-end and the 830 is at least upper-midrange

    I use 930.

    Personally I don't get it why people says it has poor battery life since it last a days. I think that's enough for dialy activities.

    WhenI traveling I use the wireless charging stand for cars that I got for free when purchasing the phone. I also had little powerbank on pocket always ready.

    It's not like I staring to it everytime

    Thanks for your comments, I had a Nokia 930 and it lasted to about lunchtime at one of my business exhibition visits, calls, note taking contently, voice messaging, photos, photo editing and company website browsing.

    I had a Note 3 Android based phone, with a spare battery, yet I could do all the above (ok not in my prefered fast Windows phone way) but it would still have 10% battery at the end of the event, then I could simply swap out the battery for music and entertainment on train journey home
