    All I see in it is a 1520 with a smaller screen. Sensible, but not really worth the wait. Unless big screens are a serious no no. I, prolly, will get myself the 1520. I am switching to windows from Android and I hope the experience is good.

    Like some of you have expressed, I too am disappointed in the shape of the 930. I was hoping for a shape design like the 1520. I don't like the "brick' design. I was also hoping for the hardware buttons to be removed and onscreen buttons used instead, because this would then encourage people to port Android to the handset, opening up the possibility of a dual boot Windows Phone /Andoid handset.

    No. I won't buy another phone without micro sd card, ever. I have to keep juggling with my music library on my 920 with 32 GB so there's no friggin way im splashing over 500 on a Phone and go thrugh that trouble another couple of years. Hoping for a decent htc or sony Z2ish (one can dream).

    I really like the white one. It will be a welcome replacement to my dying Lumia 800.
    I think the 930 will be the perfect upgrade :-)

    I like the idea of the device but the lack of sd support is a deal breaker. Why have such a beast of a phone and then limit it. Music, hd movies, hd games, raw camera images - these all conspire to drain storage and an sd slit would at least offer respite.

    I really don't know why they did that.

    Me, being be, will obviously buy it.

    HOWEVER, I'm European. And we Europeans buy phones at full price, not on carrier contracts. Now, this phone will cost 650€ in Europe (750€ in Portugal thanks to the ever stealing retailers here). I will NOT buy this phone at full price. Which means pre-order is out of the question.
    I'm not spending 650€ on a 6 months old phone that is already outdated internally when compared with the competition's flagships.
    I will buy this when the price comes down to 500€ or bellow (just like the 1520 has already come). If I want to spend 650€ on a phone, it better be a true 2014 flagship. And that means: SD801, 3GB RAM, 2.3 to 2.5Ghz, microSD card etc. Just like every single Android flagship released so far.
    And yes, I know, WP doesn't need those specs bla bla bla. Well, neither does Android 4.4. It's still good to have them as a bit of future proof. Also...no microSD? Yeah...

    So in resume, yes I'll buy it, no I won't pre-order it nor get it within the first 3 months of availability (unless Nokia sends me one for free, of course).

    I want one now to replace my iPhone 5, which is my goto phone. I have a lumia 1520 but its honestly a tad too big for me. That and I'm having issues with mms using Aiowireless.

    The lack of an SD card does not bother me at all...try living with the Att handicapped 1520 and 16 GB and having to constantly monitor what you download and save to your phone.

    I kind of want it....in orange or green. But i am a bit wary about going down from a 1520 to a 930....just for a color as it really has nothing over my 1520 besides wireless charging and double memory.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but I just can't bring myself to. At least not just yet. Disappointed in it, mainly the design, but other things as well. Really, the only thing I like about it is the colors. I'll either get a 1520 or wait to see what the holiday season has in store (Goldfinger, please).

    Don't get me wrong, it's a solid device, and some do like the design. Just not my cup of tea.
    You are right, its a solid device. Buy 8 months down the line, Nokia could have used better specs like SD801 or 805 and a better camera. This is definitely not a flagship device

    I am thinking about getting it but having to wait until June is tedious plus it depends on sim free price here in the UK. In some ways i am thinking maybe i should just buy a 1020 instead hmmm

    The SD801 is just a higher clocked and slightly improved SD800......and that is due to silicon advancement.
    The 805 is the one that is different. (SD800 and SD801 uses Krait 400 CPU cores and Adreno 330 GPU, the SD805 uses Krait 450 cores and Adreno420 GPU)

    Just so you know, no one uses an 805 yet.....

    Having an 800 or an 801 is just as equally futureproof as each other...
    If you had a Samsung Galaxy S4, you had the 800, S5 gives you the 801.
    If you had a HTC One, you had a 600, the One M8 gives you the 801.
    LG G2 still has the 800
    Sony Xperia Z1 had the 800, the Z2 has the 801.
    All smartphones nowadays are retardedly powerful unless you get a low end model.

    MicroSD...that's more of a design decision not an 'outdated' model. That one I can agree on.

    I plan on getting one, 32gb is fine for me, I would have liked a micro SD like in the 1520 though. Other than that its the smaller 1520 that I wanted (well I wanted a 1020 equipped with the SD800). Its time to retire my 710 (8gb non-expandable internal memory, that's a painful to live with lol) and I am not waiting until Novemberish for the next batch of (most likely) SD805 equipped smartphones. I believe the 1020 successor would likely be announced around that time though, that one had better be equipped with the 805.

    Windows 8.1 will allow Apps to SD freeing up lots of room on the internal memory.

    I know about the 805. It's only going for sale on devices at the end of the year. Still, having the latest chips wouldn't hurt them. On the contrary, given the prices they'll be asking for the 930, they should put the latest tech in it. At least that way, when the consumer goes to a store and starts to just look at the numbers between flagships, they wouldn't think "Wait...they're asking more for this when these numbers are inferior to that other device there?". It'd be just good business.

    The microSD is really inexcusable. When all the new flagships have it, when one of the big innovations of Windows Phone 8.1 itself is the ability of saving stuff directly to the SD card, having a flagship sold as "the best of Lumia and Microsoft" without it, it's just a shot in the foot.

    As for the successor to the 1020...it shouldn't come until the end of the year, at best, IF it comes. Remember, meanwhile Nokia is going away and there's no guarantee that Microsoft will keep pouring so much money into flagship imaging devices. And they would need real imaging innovations to justify the refresh of such a niche device as the 1020.

    1520 with a smaller screen? But it looks absolutely nothing like it. Not even close (unfortunately).

    The 930 is not coming to the US.

    From Nokia Conversations website:

    "The Nokia Lumia 930 is priced at $599 before taxes and subsidies. It will be available from June beginning in Europe, Asia, India, Middle East and Latin America and will continue to rollout throughout the world (except the US) throughout the summer."

    I read the same thing. Seems llike a nice device, really like it, hardware, design but sadly the US will not enjoy it on its GSM carriers.

    Oh well, i really like the green 635, will be a great device for my usage.

    I want one if AT&T gets it. The green one is my favourite.

    I'm hoping that it will be available on AT&T, especially since I'm eligible for an upgrade.

    My contract ended a few days ago with my obsolete Lumia 900. I'm waiting on AT&T and seeing if they will rape this phone like they did with the 1520, by slashing the memory in half and removing the built-in qi wireless charging. Totally disappointing... If they don't I'll do the upgrade, if it gets altered, I'll stick with my 920 and run WP8.1 when it comes out.

    I went from an N8 to the 920 and really missed the SD card as I went from 48g to 32g. Yea I know 32g is a lot but I have a ton of music. The camera on the 920 is great at low light but I do miss the camera on the N8 and so I was looking forward to the 930 , but I think I will wait to see what comes down the line in a few months.

    So the exact same thing, but in a slightly-larger body?

    I'd get it, but I'm not able to upgrade until November, and I'm hoping some Snapdragon 805 stuff shows up around then.

    I have a 920 now, and the 930 checks off the must haves of faster processor, higher MP camera, OLED screen, and integrated Qi charging. It's just missing the micro SD slot. My contract is up in December, so I'll hope that my dream Lumia is out by then.
    We, and probably thousands others, have similar checklists. And there are multiple people on this thread that have already stated that they are disappointed in the lack of a SD Card slot. I absolutely concur. It's a shot in the foot that will just damp down demand for the phone.

    Bollox!!! I guess I'm stuck with my 920 and wait for WP8.1 and get a refresh. Hopefully they don't take forever to bring it out.

    Why no effing SD card for the 930? If the 1520 has it there should be no issues in putting one in the 930...at least then it has a slim chance of standing up to the mighty Samsung Galaxy S5!

    I was planning on getting the 930, but i'm sure it won't be available on T-Mobile in the USA. I guess I will have to wait for the Nokia 935 to be released 6 months later just like I did getting the 925.
