    Wasn't 599 the price without taxes?



    I recall that via build2014 a price of 579 USD was given and everyone was sure that THAT was without taxes.





    But the german 599 is definitly including all taxes.





    I had a little talk with the official german cyberport twitter account. They told me the price (599) and even more important the delivery date (15.05.2014) was given by their supplier. Of course noone knows where they get there data from but its pretty solid I'd say.





    If you know german, here is the original conversation (deathmetalmods is me).

    600 euro is fine, I think I will get 450 for my 5s so it will costs me 150 euro and if there is a wireless charger in the box then the price is perfect :)

    Hey guys, I need to get new phone as my lumia 920 is broken.

    Lumia 1520 or Lumia 930?
    Which one will be better and what you guys suggest.

    Lumia 1520 is already available n India. Lumia 930 may come after 2-3 months.
    is it worth waiting?

    If anyone remember, Joe Belforie told that the old lumias may not have some specific hardware/sensor (including Lumia 920). I didn't remember the context.
    But he's also not sure about Lumia 1520 has it or not but Lumia 930 supports.

    So what do u say.

    If the 1520 isn't too big for you, go for it. Internally they are the same. Only makes sense to wait for the 930 for those (like me) who find the 1520 too big.

    Personally, I'd rather the 1520. Internally it's the same, but you also get microSD and Glance with the 1520. Not to mention it looks nicer (to me) than the 930. Of course, the size is an issue for some people. I strongly recommend playing with the 1520 at a store before purchasing it. It seems many have touch screen sensitivity issues as well. Do some research on these forums and keep that in mind.

    -Good screen size (6 inches is way too big)
    -Qi wireless charging (built-in, no stupid back casing, so you can have a protective skin case with out the hassle of switching cases to charge wirelessly)
    -16 extra GB of internal storage (32GB Total, this means more music, photos and apps. MicroSD cards only lets you have music and pictures, you can't save apps on memory cards ONLY on internal memory)
    I concur on everything else, but 8.1 brought support for apps being stored on SD card.

    I decided to upgrade to the L925 from the 920 (I'd use the word upgrade loosely tho). I had waited to see what the 930 would hold, but unfortunately I'm not interested in a 5inch screen. 4.5 is already pushing it. I wish Nokia could produce a 4/4.3 inch flagship with similar specs to the 930. Because I knew that was super unlikely I plumped for the 925.

    I thought about it, but still the phone is behind, they use the 800 snapdragon. they should use the 801 or better the 805
    It is not waterproof this is a big setback as the sony and samsung both are
    the storage is to small (for most people 32G should be enough, but do you have a bunch of apps, capture a lot of video on it, and so on you run out fast)
    the speaker is not even close to the boom sound on the htc
    still no Ir blaster? again the htc and samsung has this
    screen still has the big non usable black edge, the screen should be to the edge
    3 gigs of ram would be nice. (like in the new galaxy)
    MHL-hdmi support?
    this phone is behind frome the start. Dont get me wrong I love my lumia 920 but, but it seems like the other products allways have more to offer. my girlfriend bought the htc one when I bought my lumia 920, and must say the mike, ear piece and speakers on my nokia, are simply not even close to the htc quality. :(

    Difference between the 800 and 801 is minimal you will not notice it ! , water resistent, im not planning to drop my phone into the toilet and will not use my phone in the rain anyway , 32 gig is more then enough for me.
    People are sometimes complaining to complane

    So bottom line i am going to sell my Iphone 5S and will buy the nokia 930 !!!! Wooooohooooo

    Im EXTREMELY tempted but there was a slew of codename devices outed recently that i'm sure won't be far behind the 930.... Not sure what to do really. The problem with Nokia is... they're forever announcing something and then making you wait MONTHS for it. Completely stupid in my opinion, the 'icon' is already in production and no doubt the 930 could be... If they're hoping to create hype then they're foolish.

    I agree. The time the 930 will be available, it will be a nearly a year after the first Snapdragon 800 device launched and while I would probably cough up the 600 now I am not sure if that will be the case in June.

    Beside no sd card slot, I am bit concerned about battery life.

    I was planning to grab 925, but I think 930 is worth a wait even with several downsides.
    5" is fairly big for me, but comparing the dimension against 925, it is more or less the same. Bit heavier, but nothing to worry about.

    Can't wait. If there would be 64gb Vodafone edition, same as 925 is, would be great.

    Gonna grab the white one. :)

    Not really when you consider the 920 has a very popular feature that the 930 doesn't... Glance Screen. Though it's a step forward in some regards, it's more of it's own device than a true successor in my opinion considering the absence of this feature as well as the blocky aesthetics.

    I will get the L930 as I dropped my 920 in a pool of water. It is still functioning after a two days operation to have dry, but the screen damaged.
    Also I am start seeing some malfunctions so I can wait to get my hands on the 930.
    exactly what I was waiting for. acceptable storage, althought 64GB was more appropriate. and toher spec are just great.
    If they could lose the hardware keys and place onscreen would be even nicer.

    I think it's nice but not particularly interesting. It just doesn't excite me the way previous high-end Lumias have, and doesn't seem like a big enough upgrade over my 925 to justify replacing it. I'm gonna wait for the 1020's successor, assuming there is one in the pipeline.

    Not until around 2015 ;)

    Also, if you had a 920 I'd agree with you. But I think the 930 is clearly an upgrade over the 925. Just think about it: better processor etc (SD800, 2GB yadayadayada), better camera (20mp), built in wireless charging, 32GB of storage instead of just 16GB...
    If the 930 upgrades on something, it's the 925, more than the 920.
