    Well, Nokia Lumia 930 is available at our biggest carrier. The price is, drums please :D , 420 on a 2 year contract. Not bad, for comparison, LG G3-470 which is dirt cheap for that kind of the phone, Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC ONE - 550 ( you do get Galaxy fit with S5 but nothing with HTC) and last, Sony Xperia Z2-570, iPhone 5S 16GB costs the same.
    So generally it's Lumia quite good bang for buck, hell it costs only 40 more than Lumia 820 did at the start. Like it very much.

    So I've looked at some prices to fix my L920.

    I have a crack in my screen and I was thinking of replacing the battery. It will cost about 60 including shipping. Thing is, I'm unsure if I want to bother since I'll probably get a new phone in about 5-6 months and the phone will probably be worth 60. :P

    Ah technology is a pain. :P
    Indeed. I'm in the process of repairing this 920 and I know I'm going to take a loss to sell it because it is AT&T locked and the unlock code costs at least $50 for a nearly 2 year old phone.

    Is the crack on the screen in a spot where a screen protector can cover it?

    It's in the bottom left corner. It doesn't interfere really with using the phone but if I want to sell it or send it in for recycling then it needs to be in good shape. Not sure what my plans are currently.

    Nice. My provider wants 649 for the 930, 669 for the G3 and 799 for the S5. Of course those prices are pretty much based on fantasy to promote the reductions on contract.

    That is about what it is worth here. If you like it, maybe it is worth repairing it. I've seen where a new screen and new battery extend a phone's life...

    In reality you can get the S5 for 589, the Lumia 930 for 542 and the G3 for 552 from independent stores.

    I've decided I'll play it this way. I'll give the Cyan update until September. If I don't get it by then I'll just get another phone and then recycle the L920 unless someone wants to take it off my hands. Not sure what I'll get but by then I'll assume I'll be completely fed up with the whole waiting for updates thing.

    Maybe you should buy a Nokia X, they get updates:

    I would never touch a Nokia X phone. Not only is not something I would ever consider, it's basically DOA.

    Second hand devices or new? I never use eBay to get stuff. I don't like second hand devices and I like stores I know I can trust. The numbers I gave are from independent retail stores that sell the devices directly.

    The LG G3 is cheaper than the S5 by almost 90. The L930 is 30 cheaper than the G3.

    I'd probably go with the G3 personally.

    No, I think it's time to let WP go for a bit. I've given them a chance. I'm willing to wait. All they need to do is come out with the update, a phone and some direct promises. If they can do that then I'll stay. At this point I'm ready to walk.

    Makes sense. I think I'm in a similar place too. I may hold onto to my 925 for a little longer but perhaps it is time to move on.

    Nothing against WP, it's just moving too slowly for me. I'm tired of waiting. Everything has taken too long and now I'm just over it. I was hoping when I switched to WP it worked be better than Symbian but the similarities are starting to get to me.

    the wait sucks for everyone . if they had like a nexus line of wp that gets updates first+ firmware I would jump on that

    Agreed. Fortunately for me, I don't have a full reliance on services from Google or MSFT, so I think that for my daily driver as long as the Moto X gives me good enough battery life, I should be ok. I still like my 925 and may not upgrade until the 930 much cheaper. While the hardware on the Nexus 5 is better, the gap is close enough where I can get that Moto X at 32GB (on sale) for the same price as the N5.

    I thought they did. It's supposed to be their country variant, unlocked, but even that is not updated yet or very limited. That's ridiculous. I don't know if they can launch an update any slower.
