    Anyone who gets the 930 on 2 years contract is not thinking. It really is an unspectacular phone.

    Save your money for Goldfinger guys. Nokia is fooling you, the 930 was never supposed to be 'the new high end device'. Goldfinger was. But they can't finish it in time, so they refer to a tweaked Icon as the new high end model.

    They really have nothing high end to offer right now, and that's why they will lose to all the top notch androids recently available and the LG G3 coming, and the iPhone 6.

    Nokia/MS have to step up. Always behind.. Zzzz.

    Agree with you here, Very sad windows phones are taking so long to hit the store's. Gave my 920 to my wife 6 months ago and picked up a LG G2 love the phone but the build quality is not as good as my 920.
    My wife has dropped it many a times and is amazed that it has taken all the punishment she dished out . I was going to get her the 930 but as usual it is not getting released till months after announcement. very poor Microsoft, Nokia. :(

    Exactly. Before 1520, Nokia was always behind high end Android devices in terms of hardware specs (except for cameras). This was the perfect time for Nokia to compete with Galaxy S5. They should have launched 930 on Feb and a 1020 successor by June / July. But looks like for MS / Nokia, someone created a panic situation, on why they should stay in the race of high end android devices, its better to take a break, so that they can remain behind.

    Me too, but am absolutly sure that we will among few. Way fewer than we would have been when the device launched at a reasonable timing.

    I am in the same boat, I don't have a ******* choice. 1520 is good but, I love the design of 930, that's why I am compromising
    1) Glance Screen
    2) Extra large screen
    3) MicroSD Slot and
    4) have to wait 2-3 months

    All Lumia 930 will come with wireless charging. Go for white, if you purchase orange or green, make sure you color the frame using water color or something else

    Orange and green are better, but you have to color the frame in order to match the complete theme

    Sadly i've realized this, as much as WP doesnt need as high end specs as tooted for Android devices, the fact that this is an older phone with a new name is somewhat disappointing. I've had an iPhone 5S for 6 months now and im really tired of it, thinking of giving my wife the 5S, selling her 5 for a decent WP (1020? Definitely not a lower end 520) and maybe early next year seeing whats avaliable from Nokia/MS. Im not sure if they're waiting to surprise everyone with a new AMAZING device, but as you said the longer they wait the more customer they lose to high end Android phones and iPhone 6.

    But what is highend at this moment the 801 is the fastest chip and it's not noticeable faster than the 800 chip so in my eyes the 930 is still high end 👻

    specs wise 930 has excellent hardware specs, except for rare mounted small mono speakers. But it I late into the race. 930 an ICON owners can easily make Galaxy S4 owners jealous. similarly 1520 owners can make note 3 owners jealous. But can't compete with Galaxy S5, because of water proof nature of the device, 4K video recording and fingerprint scanner. Lumia 930 is almost 6 months behind. June / July should have been the time to launch a 1020 successor, that could easily outclass S5 and Z2

    I think we're just being impatient. Realistically I should've been able to pre-order it already and have a marketing email coming to my inbox every week getting me all hyped up about my purchase. That's what happened when I first preordered the iPhone 3GS :)

    I'm really eager to try WP out since I've only ever used iOS + Android.

    I read an article that explains why the 930 takes so long, its all because of WP 8.1, that's not finished yet and they want to ship the Nokia 930 with 8.1. They can't ship it with the dev release..so actually it's a simple answer to why it takes so long 😄

    MS needs a swift kick in the *** to speed up the progress of WP. Its been going at a snails pace ever since WP7. Convergence cant come soon enough. Nokia could also have used this time to throw more gimmicks into the device instead of just change the ICON's backplate color and wait for WP8.1

    Im still on a Lumia 710 so I don't care about the lack of glance and the microSD slot missing. Of course I wished the 1020 came with snapdragon 800 internals but I don't see its successor coming out anytime soon so its 930 for me. (1520 is too damn big)

    Your opinion of course - but most people won't get a choice... the majority of contracts are 2 years now, and "Goldfinger" is so far in the distance it's not funny.
    You could easily have said the same thing about the 920, but here we are almost 2 years down the line and the 930 DOES carry a lot of new spec with it, as well as looking nice and fresh.

    The reason we're on this forum is (largely) because we like windows phones... hence windows phone central, I don't want an iphone, been there done that, and they have next to zero innovation for the past few years.
    I personally don't like the android OS, but do conceed the samsung S5 is a superb piece of hardware.

    I will be getting the 930, I might buy it outright, I might take out a contract, but it really irks me when I see these 'you're stupid if you do that' (yes, I'm paraphrasing) posts. People can do whatever the f*** they want.
    [rant over]

    On a similar note though, the lag between announcement and release is really pretty shoddy, should be month absolute max.

    so if the 630 will be available to buy in about 2 weeks what is taking the 930 so long, a phone which was being developed 6 months ago still taking so damn long?

    A lot of my excitement for this phone has gone down now...

    Looks like Nokia / MS are following some stupid trend of starting with low end device, then bring their high end. It doesn't work this way. You have to start with high end, so that it becomes a hit and then that goodwill encourage budget customers to go for low end stuff

    I love the Touch ID, one of the few things i LOVE about the 5S. It saves me from having to enter my PIN everytime i unlock my phone, which is very frequently.
