    I think I'm going to get the 930. The old 920 is starting to get a bit old now and its being forgotten about with regards RAW support and other features. 4.5 inches is almost too big for one hand for me, but viewing websites on a ' small' screen is getting annoying. Another .5 inch would be nice. Def a 2 hand jobby though, even the woman in the advert had a hard time with it and she probably had banana hands.

    I think I may wait it out as I have a 920 on EE and my contract ends in November. If the McLaren came out then, I will get it!

    Ordered it from amazon.fr today as I got bored with waiting for a firm release date in the UK. It cost just over 450 after exchange rate commission -- not bad, really. If the McLaren is that much of a step up, I'll think about trading the 930 in but I concluded there's no point waiting as that dynamic could go on for ever.

    Im waiting,, bought my 920 contract free a month after it came out for 330 with 2 wireless chargers and a free set of headphones. Epic bargain. So Im waiting for a proper successor to the 920, e.g not the 930 which is basically the 925.

    I'll wait for McLaren so that I can (hopefully) get the 930 for cheaper. My contract is up in September and hopefully McLaren is released around that time (probably a month or two later is my guess).

    Why would anyone buy this over a 350 Nokia 1520 on Amazon? Same phone apart from the 1520 being bigger with a bigger battery. 930 is a complete dud that should have come out at Christmas time.

    I'll be waiting for the McLaren.

    Because not everyone wants a massive phone?

    930 will do me fine, anything is better than my HTC at the moment!

    I was going to; my contract was up in March, so I have just been waiting for it to become available. They've just taken too long with it though, and I don't see much point in grabbing what is an almost six-month-old phone when I can just wait a few more months and see what the year-end flagship will be. My release day 920 is still trucking along nicely, even more so with 8.1 on it, so I can afford to be patient.

    I am tempted by this but I'll wait to actually hold it in a shop before I decide. This week's rumours of a 1525 is making me a bit hesitant as I think I would end up preferring that.....

    Are those 'cheap' 1520s on Amazon not grey imports though?

    I'm stuck with this problem as well, I'm not really into the idea of a 6 inch phone but at 350 it's more than a match for the 930, indeed it has a couple of advantages, ie micro SD and full RGB screen. I'll wait to see the UK price sans the "free" crap.

    The 930 is tempting but I've got my 920 until Jan '15 so I'm hoping the McLaren will be available by then.

    For me, L930 is a forgotten phone. It has really nothing of interest for me. It's too expensive for what it is. I see it's price dropping rapidly. I still won't buy it though.

    No idea what phone I want. I'll wait and see what comes out.

    Basically no one is getting one. Shame really, it's the only other Lumia to have wireless charging.

    Wireless charging is not a reason to get 6 month old technology in my opinion.

    This is part of the problem. As it stands, WP only gets a couple of new devices a year, and its frustrating when these devices miss out on features already available on older phones.
    I need a new phone soon (my 820 cracked it's screen), but I don't like the 930 because of missing Glance and SD card support.
    The 1520 seems to have it all in, but I want a phone, not phablet.
    I almost looked at the 925 but it has no wireless charging (without a case)

    If and when a "proper" flagship comes out (and not some hyped up international version of a phone existing in the US for over half a year) with *all* the features on previous phones, I'll think of getting that.

    In the meanwhile, the Moto G 4G does look like a really nice phone...

    Such a dilemma. I dropped my 920 and the top half has shattered. I don't know whether to buy the 1520 off contract. See if I can get an early upgrade and go for this or try and wait it out till McLaren. Contract ends in October. I could get the 1520 and then get the McLaren when its out but then id have a 1520 lying around.

    Do you have to pay tax/ customs duty on this purchase (in case you are receiving it in the UK)?

    Will replace the 1020 with Mclaren when its out. Gave gf the 920 I had, advised her 6 months ago to get the 930 however its a **** take to pay a premium price for technology that is already 12 months old today. If it was much cheaper then its a no brainer.

    Its not too long to wait for a device with cutting edge 805 processor, 8.1 with update 1, 3D control, Cortana that actually works in the UK, all for a not too dissimilar price. Each to their own though, I know if I tied myself into a 24 month contract with a 930 today, I would cry inside in 12 months time when I see that if I waited only a few months that id have a device id be happy with for 2 years.

    When I lived in Germany I used to order from Amazon UK all the time and never had to pay any more than additional postage. Guess that's one of the (few?) advantages of being in the EU.
