    You should try Sony's Z1 Compact and Z2. I'm pretty sure you'd change your mind ;)
    I don't have a problem with other OEMs hardware (actually I do, with Samsung). My problem is with Android itself, the way it works, it is just bad.

    And I'm not even talking about lag, although it still exists after some time using the devices... because apps aren't sandboxed, you easily lose control over them.

    I'm talking about design, processes and user experience decisions...

    Fair enough.
    I like Android. I liked it more before 4.4. but what I still like is that you can change what you don't like if you bother to do it, of course. Something I would appreciate on WP. I'm not too keep on some of Microsoft's aesthetic decisions. I'm also not mad about Google's but there I can actually change them. On WP is a heck more difficult. I would like if WINDOWS Phone was a bit more Windows-like actually.

    (post scriptum - I'm with you on Samsung.)

    Some people like Android because it's open, others hate it because of it. In my opinion, freedom would be good if it didn't mean that you lose control over what the apps are doing. Actually, I know you can control and manage them, but it takes a lot of dedication and specially time. I like it more when the OS serves me than otherwise.

    In April it was a closed deal, I would get the 930 when it arrived. In May it become a maybe as I had time to think, do I want a refurbished Icon with all it's defects like small battery, limited storage and no possibility to expansion? Now in June I'm more sure that I will not get an 930, if the 630 had 1 gig of memory I would have one in my hand at this moment waiting for a true flagship at the year end. I will get something in the shift June/July, it will not be a 930, it could be 630 or if they have released one of the new brands Yess and Blu or I give up and get LG G3/HTC M8 as a proper flagship phone.
    Decision done, there will be no Lumia 930 for me. I just ordered an Lumia 520 for 790 kr (119 dollars). It is still an upgrade in almost every aspect to my old Lumia 800 and it will keep me to they release the next proper WP flagship and that at a more or less unbeatable price (including tax, shipment and so on).

    "Every aspect"...except the camera. And the flash. And the build quality. ;)

    I don't think the 520 is any worth upgrade from the L800. The L820 was. But if you just want a WP8.1 device, then sure, the 520 will fit the bill more than nicely.

    Sorry to disappoint but that "LG Uni8" is a fake. I'm not saying LG won't produce any WP in the future, but that "LG Uni8" doesn't exist.

    No breaks?? Please, in Canada we never got the 925, 928, 1520, nor are we likely to get the Icon/930. The US is WP paradise compared to us.

    Today I was there again.. wondering if I should not abandon iPhone and iOS and go back to.. well Android, since the 930 is not here yet. So I started googling and comparing, the S5, Z1 compact, Z2 and the 930. Looking at size (I prefer a smaller phone), the Z1 compact wins, but between the other three the 930 has good size. There are only three problems 1. The boredom of Android.. it is just like iOS but with lower quality and feel 2. The boredom of iOS.. my god it's boring.. nothing has changed since 2006 3. The weight of the Lumia 930. Is it really that difficult to peel off 25-30g the get it down in the 130g range? If Iphone has 112g, the S5 145, should it not be possible for the Lumia to be inbetween? It just makes me mad.

    Even though the 930 is disappointing to me, getting it for free is undeniably a great deal. So basically my moms contract is soon up for renewal. The thing is she doesn't want a new phone so in theory I could just use her brand new 930 untill my own contract is done and then I'll get the goldfinger/mclaren/whatever with my own contract :)

    I wouldn't mind buying one, but damn can't Nokia/Microsoft make a thinner phone. They seem to love the 9+ mm thick phones. If I can I'll hold out for a wp8.1 device with sub 9mm profile.

    I'll be getting the Nokia Lumia 930 to finally get out of budget smartphone-ry if it's out by my next birthday. Hopefully also buying it with a matching case and screen protector, because, well, yeah.

    (Hi all! )

    I'm planning to get this phone, wish it could come out soon!!

    Although I am also considering the Lumia 1020, I'm more on the 930 because of higher specs. I guess camera won't be totally a disappointment compared to the 1020.

    I think this is the most ridiculous post I've read on this forum. Other nominations are welcome but we should set up a new thread.

    As far as I'm concerned, if the 930 isn't released until the end of June, I'm cancelling the pre-order. To buy an outdated phone later than that, I rather wait for the price to drop. I'm only buying the 930 because it's Nokia's last phone for the time being anyway, so...

    Meanwhile, maybe Sony does bring forth a WP device.

    I was set to buy back in April, but now I am just annoyed by this launch.

    We all knew it would be tough when they announced the July Launch. But now that we all have lived through a armada of better equiped androids, the snapdragon 805 is getting ready and 1440p screens are there ...
    the 930 feels like a blast from the past.

    I can't keep checking WPC and monwindowsphone.fr twenty times a day for news. I decided to buy a new white housing for my 920 to give me something else new to focus on. My 920 looks new and sparkly now!

    I'm super keen for the 930 to be released! My current phone is a 520, I love it and I'm looking forward to my first flagship :)

    WP8.1 looks awesome and the specs on the 930 are mint: my only problem with it is there's no SD Card slot.

    I'll be going to have a look hands on when it's released but as long as there isn't a serious reason why I can't buy it, the deal is already sealed for me :)

    Well, I have had the 520 for nearly two weeks now and thinks it's a really good upgrade to my old 800. Yes the build qulity is a bit flimsy and the camera is two bits worse (including no flash) and also the screen looks a bit washed out compared to the 800. But all in all it rules over the old 800 and the simple reason is that the WP 8.0 is that much better then the old 7.8. It is a bit funny, the 800 was the original flagship and after two years it is nearly run over by the cheapest phone in Nokia's offering. That says all of the speed of development and is a good reason to not get a phone that by now is more than a half year old, at least if you have to pay flagship price for it. I payed 119$ (including all Swedish taxes that are 25% on the top) for my low budget phone and I would not pay any more than 400$ for an 930 (i.e. an half year old icon) but it will most probably sell for 750-800$.

    So all in all the 520 is the best phone buy I have ever done and it will keep me happy until the MacLearen release (and I hope that phone will have an memory expansion slot).
