    I am finding this HARD to believe tha Lumia 930 doesn't have a pure view camera, while it's cheap counter part 830 does have a pure view camera. Does this mean that if we leave megapixel and sensor size aside, 830 will deliver better quality pictures?

    Where did you get the idea that 930 is not a PureView?

    Although I am not sure, how much authentic it is, but it states, "The flagship product from Nokia this year. The first and most surprising aspect of the Lumia 930 is that it doesn’t have the Pureview camera from the Lumia 1020 and 830. While it is still a 20 MP shooter with a Carl Zeiss lens, Nokia chose not to include this in the Pureview segment"

    Maybe you should check the phone manufacturers website to double check facts before making false assumptions.

    Here is the link for you: Nokia Lumia 930 - Smartphone with Windows Phone 8.1 - Microsoft - UK

    Before reading that statement, I myself happened to believe that it does have a pure view camera. But such words in that link can confuse anyone for a while

    I don't think that a camera being "pureView" or not is anything but a marketing scheme. If it's a term reserved for Nokia's top quality cameras, then clearly the one in the 1520 and the 930 is a Pureview camera, wouldn't it be?

    If it is not pureview camera, why my 930 has pureview carved/printed on the back, next to camera? http://mobilenet.cz/obrazek/nokia-lumia-930-146477

    It's okay. PureView just means, the camera does that oversampling thing. What this means is you can do the whole reframing thing, you can zoom while maintaining an output resolution of 5MP (of course zooming in will mean less oversampling, which will drop the detail a little bit).

    It's nifty technology, in fact, the Sony Xperia Z3 camera uses it too.

    Yes, always go for the official sites rather than referring those kind of sites

    I think the term "pureview" includes the IOS and the oversampling. Any Lumia with one of those can be called Pureview Lumia :D

    Strictly speaking, the "PureView" element in Lumia devices refers to the type of imaging sensor + lens hardware. The 930 has the same 20MP PureView sensor and lens that the 1520 has albeit with some updated firmware.
