    I allways wanted to come back to WP8, i had a lumia 925 but my battery drained to quickly, i want my phone to stay charged 1 day, not 2 or 3 just 1, but in that day i want to surf 2 hours with mobile data on, 1 with wifi and a lot of calls and messages, i have now a Lg G3 with 16gb/2gm ram and i get bored, should i change with a lumi 930 ? i read a lot of bugs about the display and the purple tint, the headphone jack is missplaced, and i really want a sincerly advice, thank you !

    Personally, I wouldn't touch a L930. That's just my opinion and the reason why I haven't upgraded to it. It has nothing in the way of an upgrade for me and I'm coming from an L920.

    I don't get this 'boredom' thing that people go on about with regards to phones and interfaces. WP is probably the dullest interface going but people seem excited by it. I don't quite get it.

    To me, I'm on the borderline to switching to Android because WP is still missing too many apps for my liking and with them constantly twiddling with the OS it looks to be another year or two until things settle down.

    If you're keen on WP wait until spring next year when something half decent comes out.

    If battery is your concern get the OnePlus One, it will easily last a day or two without any issues.

    Agreed but however light it is I still don't like a skin on the pure Android experience. The OPO uses CM 11s which is very stock.... Just my 2c.

    I do get the boredom thing with phones etc. I change my phone every 3 months on average as I like a change. I switch between WP, Android iPhone as I like aspects of them all. For me I THINK I keep coming back to Lumia's in particular because I love the look of them, great cameras, I like having something a little different and maybe because I'm rooting for WP to succeed after getting behind it right from the early days. I do get seriously frustrated by missing apps or when Facebook apps etc don't have many features already on Android and iOS versions but every time I come back the platform has advanced a little more than before.

    Wouldn't touch the 930 either as it's a step backwards for a flagship. Love Glance and the sd card so that's a killer on the 930

    I get the feeling we simply won't see Glance anymore. The lack of SD card isn't an issue for me however the poor battery life and the issues with overheating, screens and so on is what does it for me along with the older hardware. Yes on the whole it's not bad but I already have a phone with a crap battery, I don't need another.

    I'm curious to see what the next update brings so I'm sticking around until then. However, I'm a little over the lack of 'full' apps by the vendors. The 3rd party thing is a little disappointing. Something needs to change.

    Not sure if all them have it but lots of people have complained about it. It's like the L920. Some people have a perfect experience, some have a horrible one.

    If you want a decent but cheaper phone get the L830 until the next flagship shows up. The apps store is better but still missing some mainstream apps. We just got Flipboard, finally.

    I'm guessing it's size since they have an issue with the 1+1.

    I would. In the end when you consider switching platforms/phones you'll always be unsure until you grit your teeth and say "right, let's go for it." I agonised about whether the 930 would make me happy (coming from Android and all the flagships) but in the end I'm really very pleased and I enjoy every day with my phone. Also, I had serious battery concerns too, but mine is really great, I can get a day and a half from it.

    i did not have that problem on the screen... i came from a 925 too and... the 930 is much better in all regards. maybe the only think where the 925 wins is the look!!! and yes the glance screen. apart that 930 all the way. it's a great machine and it's getting all the features from the coming gdr2(denim). go for it!!
