    I'm attending to buy a Lumia 1020 (BTW what is the best price right now?) but I can pay ~100$ more and get the 930.
    Should I go with the 1020 or the new 930?

    There is any noticeable hardware differences (instead of much better camera on 1020)?

    Thanks!

    I think 930 has fresh hardware compared to 1020. On Amazon (or eBay) 1020 was for $380- due Black Friday. But since you said 930 not Icon I'm afraid you're not in the US (shipping anywhere else MAY cost you)

    The extra $100 is absolutely worth it for Lumia 930, the phone is newer, will be better supported in future and has much more powerful hardware than 1020.

    If you do photos, only Lumia 1020 would suffice, otherwise get the 930 for the reasons other state.

    Go with the 930. The camera is still better than most, and it has more up-to-date specs. It'll give you a better run for your money, too.

    I'm really debating, on the one hand I like to take a quality photos (one of the many reasons I gonna quit android) but also want a device that I could use for at least 1.5-2 years without any lags or out of date system.

    The 930 right now is the 'flagship' I don't know how big the difference in cameras, there is any good compare between both camera devices?
    There is a big noticeable different?

    The 1020 should do the trick at newer system update, as the WP system shouldn't be heavy or laggy on older devices, but at the near future (of microsoft) I have no idea if the dual core of the 1020 will enough.

    The main question is if the 930 do things that the 1020 can't, I mean is it much much more faster, more other features that doesn't exist on the 1020, etc.

    I'll probably buy one of the devices from aliexpress, a refurbished device but great price.
    The 1020 sold for 310$
    The 930 sold for 410$

    What would you do?

    the 930 records in 5.1 surround sound, can shoot 4K video and can also do the new 8MP burst photos with the Denim update. Also built-in Qi charging, 1080p screen and a better processor. The camera won't wow you like the 1020 does, but from what I've seen it still does pretty well in low-light.

    Go for the 930. It has a great camera provided you know how to use it outside the Auto mode.
    Remember that the Denim update promises to transform the camera experience from the ground up. The new Lumia camera app is said to be totally rewritten and should make your 930 a speed demon. Add on top of that 4K recording, improved low light ability and you get a whole lot more for your money.
