It's the best we have other than the 1520 and other OEMs, and likely will remain that for months to come.
My usual piece of advice is to know what you're getting, and take a quick look at alternatives. But still, the 930 is a fine device.

930 is great but personally would go for the 1520. Specs are the same but with the 1520 you have glance and an SD card (deal breaker for a lot of people)

N8 has great camera still but ****ful Symbian OS, N9 is beautiful but Meego was abandoned before release, Lumia 800 let down by camera and like the 900 we were all screwed and left with WP 7.8. I forgave them and bought 2 920s which have been excellent phones and have held up to a lot of abuse and falls. I recently bought the 930 first in green with silver alloy band but returned it for a more subtle black model which is definitely the best build quality to date from Nokia. I'm hoping glance will come eventually as Nokia worked magic to bring it to 920 and 1520 LCD. Not too bothered if it is true about screen memory etc as everything else is present and more. If you have not already bought a 930/icon then I urge you to go and handle one as I'm sure
