    I've got a 925 currently, and I've seen a second hand green 930 for 220, and its in really good condition. The store will offer me 85 for my current 925 to trade towards the 930. I'm sure an upgrade in June, but there's no new models due for release before Windows 10.

    Should I lay down 135 for the 930 and then sell when Win10 phones are released, or just wait it out? Am I really going to notice the difference?

    My main issues with the 925 is the pitiful battery life. I have to charge every night even if I never used the phone that day.

    The battery on 930 isn't any better, sadly. It should last you a day of regular use but nothing more. I decided for 930 mainly because of the camera. But i think 135 is a good price for the phone you will get. So i would say go for it

    Battery life on the 930 is good, but that will depend mostly on how heavy you use it. It also uses little power on stand by, so no crazy discharges. (obs: with Denim)

    The 930 is really good and i'm sure it will handle W10 features very well because of the 2 gb ram + Snapdragon 800. It's almost a year old but it's still a very capable phone that i guess will age well, like the 920 did.

    i think you could wait unless your 925 is not in good conditions of use. If it's not, 930 will be great.

    As for the battery, my 2 cents...

    After owing the phone for a mere 6 weeks I guess the novelty has worn off a bit, meaning I have been using it to browse the net, read the news, play 2 games, txt, call above all and it lasts easily 3 [read: three] days.

    I am happy with it.

    On a side note, i tinkered with my wife's 735 and now it lasts almost 6 days!

    Currently have a discharge rate of 6.67% per hour. That's from unplugging at 6:45am till putting on charge at 10pm with about 10-20% battery. Might have to see what funds I have available when I get paid to see if its worth while

    Hi, a new 930 owner here. Imo, that price for a flagship is not expensive at all. Still some time to go if you are planning to buy W10 phones, and consider the price too. If I were you, I would defo get it.

    The battery life on my 930 doesn't last very long either, but still decent to me.
