    and wait for the nexr Flagship with windows 10

    also do you really use the wireless charger option ?

    I'd wait. But, be aware that it might be October or November before a flagship comes out.

    I also love wireless charging, and won't buy a phone without it.

    The 640 and 640xl are available in the UK, with some good prices. I think they are in stock.

    I have no problem for waiting but I also switch a smartphone like one In 3 years (I have a iPhone 4s)
    in Israel the phones are not connected to the contract any more (like in the us and maybe in the uk?)

    so I think I will learn the WP with the 640 (where can I found the XL on stock?)
    and when the new flagship will be announced and will be available in Israel ( will take some time since Microsoft in not in charge of the marketing here and the WP not so popular)
    will buy it

    Buy the 930!

    It's been out for a while - so you can know it's strengths and weaknesses. So far for me - it has been stellar. No issues.
    The 930 has the hardware to run W10.

    You are waiting for a phone that might be delayed, and then comes the user issues. And by the time it rolls out, something new will be announced.

    Enjoy the 930 - make up your mind later.

    Time is your friend.

    If you care about the camera quality you may choose L1020, because it is far better. The only drawback is the delay time of L1020 between the shots and the start time of the camera. If you try to take a picture of a bird or any fast moving animal there has a chance not to succeed in.

    I would suggest buying the 640XL instead. The 930 is a great device with a great camera and build quality but a meager battery. And it's a flagship device. The 640XL is cheap and a real good bang-for-buck phone and since you plan on the keeping your phones for 3 years investing now on a 930 does not look viable especially considering it to be more than a year old already. If camera is your main requirement then 930 it is, if not then the 640XL

    I'd definitely wait for the flagship, the 930 has been out in the market for a while now, and when the flagship comes out later this year, you'll really regret not waiting just a little bit longer. Also the new flagships will have all the capabilities for Windows 10 for Phones (At least the Lumia ones), so you can take advantage of those. I myself have been waiting for more than 2 years (will be 3 in November) and can wait a few more months.

    As to your second question, I have an HTC 8X with wireless charging and I really like using that capability, it's so much easier to just set it on top of the plate when I'm about to go to sleep and my room is dark, I don't have to look for where to plug in my charger. It's also very convenient for when you get home and just want to set it down on something and let it charge.

    577$ for a 930? Wow and I thought mine was a bit over priced. I just bought mine two weeks ago for 525$ It's the gold and black edition. I only had it for 3 days but I LOVE IT so far, battery life for me is debatable. And it seems to run hot if you use it for a couple of minutes.

    Of course since the 930 never existed in North America it came with the European AC adapter.... luckily I have the Lumia 635's AC adapter to use it with.

    I'd go for the 930, the 640 only has a 1.2 Quad 400 and 1 GB ram, current flagship and in my opinion the best phone out there is the 930, regardless of windows 10, it makes my Iphone 6 before this feel tedious, battery life is as good as if not better than my Iphone 6, the screen is amazing, especially outside in bright sunlight, love the solid build, was always worried kneeling down with the Iphone 6 in my pocket, thought it would snap. performance and 32GB are more than enough for anything, well for me anyway, cant imagine what more another flagship could bring, this 930 is far faster than i can cope with LOL...plus they can be picked up pretty cheap now, for the price of my boring Iphone 6 i manged to get a nokia 930 (again) and a nexus tablet, and a few beers

    It's not like its a bad flagship. I moved from the 1520 to a 930 just because of the phantom tap issue and this phone has been really good. No problems what so ever, I wish the screen was bigger, but its not like its slow by any means. As long as you like the screen size of the 930 id so go for it. But you can always wait too if you want the newer ones coming out too!

    I'd say wait... Maybe 4 or 5 months more. I'm thinking by late August we should know all about the new flagship Windows phone even if we can't buy till Oct..

    For that price? Wait. If it was closer to $360, the price you can easily find a brand new 930 in the States, I'd say go for it, since you'd end up having to pay close to double for whatever new flagship eventually comes along.

    I'm in a similar position. I'd buy the 930 in a flash if it wasn't for a few niggles that make it not quite perfect and that perhaps the 940 might fix. Then again we may not know if the 940 is the perfect (or near perfect) Lumia until a year later. There are also Windows 10 issues to iron out. I haven't looked at the phone version much, but the desktop preview I use as a developer to see what's coming up and frankly it's way off release quality.

    Anyway, 930 can be had for around 220 - 250 in the UK now which is not bad considering it's flagship. Then again a little less and could get the 640 or 640XL which are new, decent spec for the price, but they would be a compromise compared to the flagship.

    Basically need to replace an antique Galaxy S2 that's utterly bricked now and I'm bored and somewhat frustrated with Android. I come from a Nokia background with only a couple of phones since the mid 90s that weren't Nokia, though I've not had a Lumia and thus Windows Phone, though have played with it and prefer the UI to Android. I'm also more tied to the Microsoft ecosystem than Google, not to mention mainly a Microsoft developer.

    So need a phone now, so waiting for 940 is no go. Whatever I get though may be kept until the 940 or whatever is mature, so 630 compromise for a couple of years or 930 for not too much more? (which seems much nicer but has issues like poor battery life and overheating, though maybe not much of an issue). Battery life is important to me though as the old S2 struggled to last half a day especially if it's on 2G/3G, even with almost everything turned off and data limited. Though was also finding the latest Google app updates were a major cause for eating the battery. Seems they want phones to consume vast amounts of data all the time and depend on phones having bigger batteries and users to have larger data plans.

    Hmmm decisions...

    SIM-Free is still locked to the carrier in USA. So the device will be locked to AT&T - 640XL. If you need a good place to buy the fully unlocked version for cheap, PM me.

    Going with the 640 myself. On comparison, looking at the compare on GSMArena, I can live without the better camera and most of the 930 enhancements for the lower price (130 in UK for 640) for now, and it's a newer phone with some things the 930 doesn't have (better range of network bands for example, and of course a microsd slot), and hopefully better battery life.

    I had a L830 for a couple of months and that was a fine phone and performance wise it should be very similar to the L640. However the bump up when I got the L930 was noticeable and it is the right device for me, particularly at the price I paid. But I don't mind buying used which isn't for everyone.

    The L 640xl is now available in the UK for 180. The one to go for if you can handle the size.
