    At least no overheating and screen waving .
    Just here to confirm.
    I bought a new 930 today and mine gets warm at the right bottom corner within 5minutes even though I close all background programs and turn on the battery savior option. (It was like a hot potato when I didnt make those settings)
    This is my first window phone, is that most of window phones have similar overheating problems ?
    I've heard so many ppl have overheating problems so is it just normal?
    I can return my phone within 7days

    To be honest, most of the Lumia flagships have had some issues or another. The 1520 was phantom touches. The 930 was overheating.
    Most Lumias don't have an issue with it, it's just the 930. Something about the way it's designed. Return it, get a new one. Not every 930 has overheating issues.

    Most phones have no issues, which is the case with all phones to varying degrees. Remember, you only hear about the bad things.

    Hi,
    It gets warm when the CPU use is high. The CPU use will be high when you first set up the phone as it is downloading a ton of updates. If you let it rest for the first half day that will go away.

    The amount of heat is a subjective thing to some: to me the amount of heat from a 930 isn't an issue but to many it is. That said, most protective cases for the 930 insulate the user from the heat. I am using an IVSO Shield Cover and I never feel the phone getting hot, just a little warm. It might be worth getting a $10 case and seeing if it works for you before returning the phone - the 930 is really an excellent phone.

    I really like my 930 but since I had to do a restore of the operating system I have had a number of issues. The overheating has come back, there seems to be a random issue with WiFi (sometimes it does log on correctly) and finally back-up seems to have an issue every time it tries to back-up.

    It's still a great phone and will be awesome when it is running Windows 10 Mobile.

    Regards

    When I first got mine it hot like hell.

    But now it doesn't. I don't think it because I got use to it.

    My 625H also hot when I first use it. Same with 930 but they calm down afterward

    Thank you guys . i guess 930 is phone that heats up and calms down really fast . i did'nt return my phone because now it just gets warm(not hot) and i'm okay with it . Another reason is I'm so in love with its metal casing , i'd probably miss it if i returned it .
    So now i'll just buy a case to cover the heating part ;)

    My phone gets hot too when used for playing and seldom for other things too, but it is part of the design.
    Still, I would not dare to use a cover and hinder the heat flow.

    My phone is able to last way more than 20 hours if not used frequently and drains its battery fast if used for browsing and other things with many bright backgrounds: it is because of the AMOLED display for a big part.

    I've had no issues in the current OS (8.1 Update 2). I now have a MS Band that has worked flawlessly with the 930. I think its a great phone and hope W10 will make it an exceptional phone..

    It really is exceptional on this latest build (10149)...the only thing that bothers me on a daily basis is lack of "hey Cortana".

    Strong flickering? Or just some disturbances? I have them too seldom but they are so non-disturbing that I regularly forget that they happen now and then; most of the time I observe them when my phone tries to dim the screen strongly in darker places, mostly at night.

    My screen flickers so infrequently and for only a split second that I hardly notice. How bad is yours? Mine is more like a little stutter.

    I've had my 930 for about three weeks, and while it does get a little warm (depending on what app is running), I am very happy with it. Ironically, mine get's hot with the windows central app. I've tweaked some things to make sure I am not wasting battery, but overall it's a great device.

    Sadly, that is quite normal for devices with an AMOLED display and a strong SoC like Snapdragon 800 and a meagre battery like the L930's.
    (Browsing is said to be a heavy battery drainer on AMOLED devices.)

    All we can hope for are some software and firmware tweaks in the future or to wait for the L940 and sell the L930 to buy the former, if it drains the battery much slower actively and passively.

    The battery in the 930 is no "beast". Mine lasts charge to charge(nightly), but I am not a heavy user. If it lasts the day for you, try not to obsess about the percentage drops. It does seem to drop pretty quickly from the 100% mark but then kind of evens out. Again, it's all going to depend on your needs. At the end of the day, if these things keep you from enjoying the phone, then its not worth keeping.

    I think most 930s have the occasional flicker and not the greatest battery. I love it though.
