    they dont fix it... All have little flickering on 2G, its not only on few...
    Indeed they won't fix it at Nokia Care as it is not a hardware problem. But the problem isn't only on 2G like some are saying. I am always on 4G and Wifi and I too have it. But it'll go away eventually, after a few days I almost don't have if anymore...

    I thought it is a hardware issue. Are you sure it's software? Besides, maybe you just got used to it... Or phone is couple of days old. Hope there is an update, cause flickering screen is really painful to watch at... :(

    Yes it is software, why else has everybody have this exact same problem after the Denim update. It is not like the update breaks your phone ;). Also, yes it will go away after a few days. Each day since the update it happened less.

    Strange... Ok, we will wait, there is about a week left, when we can return the phone. The flickering I'm talking about is not auto brightness flickering, but horizontal lines, when connection is bad / or there is interference from PC for example. 1-2 sec long. It's like in old tv sets. Do you have same issue?

    Im sorry to hear that. The problem you described in your previous post doesn't occur on my phone, and indeed I think that is a hardware problem. My apologies as I thought you meant the 'flickering' most people noticed after the Denim update where the screen briefly turns of and on again but your problem seems much worse ;(

    I'm going for the 3rd 930 replacement. My first two 930 had hardware problems but none of them were that flickering. I'm now sure I'm getting that one on the next unit...

    It's not. My 920 has the buttons all at the same level and so does my 930. The buttons on the 930 are more sunk than the ones on the 920, yes, however, it's not normal the discrepancy he has on his phone.
    I took a look at one in a Store, the only one Ive found, have the same "problem", power button too low, seesaw movement, I guess I cant compare the international market with the "made in brazil" phone.
    I have opened a ticket with nokia support, but it will be just waste of time.
    My problem was to have a L920 before, it make me have a higher standard on phones, the lumia 930 has a better hardware but no a better phone.

    This is what I got from Microsoft moderator on official forum regarding display flickering on 2g/edge.

    Welcome to our community.

    We understand you. This is not a sign that device itself would be faulty. GSM-900 network interference can sometimes be seen on screen as lines but it only can happen in weak network conditions when phone is transmitting with full power and customer may hold phone in certain way to attenuating the antenna performance down.

    For other questions, let us know.

    Exactly my thoughts... I have sent this guy an email, to make it clear, if all the phones have this hardware feature and if it likely to be corrected in the future.
    I have switched E GSM 900 off (##3282#) and so far I didn't experience this flickering.

    Yes. That's the general experience of all those of us to went for a 930 after the 920. The internals are improved but improvements completely stop there.

    Hi!

    I have a Lumia 930, and i'm disappointed by the camera quality.
    Look at my daylight photos. I'm using Lumia Camera Classic default settings. Not edited. Still Lumia Cyan.
    I don't think the photos should be that bad. What could be the problem?

    In fact I have these scratches on the lens. Could it be the problem?wp_20150121_13_41_49_raw.jpg

    It's only visible when there are reflections on the lens like sunlight.

    wow... heavy scratches!. how'd you manage to get those?
    You can try removing your back cover and take a picture without it. That scratched piece of glass is attached to the back cover. I dont think that's an actual lens.. it's more for protection. the actual camera lens is inside

    Would I lose warranty if I removed the back cover? What do you think?

    not if you do it carefully and dont scratch it. i did it a couple of times.. you can't tell if it was removed or not.

    Check out the video I posted a couple of pages back. It will teach you to remove the cover. And yes, while the 930 camera isn't as stellar as people were expecting, those HEAVY scratches are affecting the picture quality because the inside camera lenses aren't being able to properly focus.

    I read on various forums that rubbing the outer lens with nail polish remover will remove the scratches. I'm a little bit afraid of doing this but some say it is useful.

    And another question. Will I be able to safely turn the phone on and take a photo without its cover?

    I would not use solvents on the phone. I dont think scratches can ve fixed by using acetone.
    Regarding your second questions: yes. The cover only has the NFC and wireless charging attached, so the phone works fine without them

    I removed the back cover. Before, after photoswp_20150121_11_08_13_raw.jpgwp_20150122_11_13_35_raw-1-.jpg

    The result is great. What now? Service? New rear cover?

    there are some covers on ebay to buy.
    Maybe you can just buy the transparent lens cover, and replace it yourself. It might be cheaper. I dont know how easy it is to replace it.

    Of course, you could send you phone to be repaired, but I dont know how long will it take or how expensive it might be. i dont think these kind of damages are covered by warranty. I doubt it
