    I'm an Android user now. But I like Nokia devices I've also Nokia 3230, N73 ME, N900. I love Windows Phone too. Now I get an opportunity to buy a Windows Phone. I've chosen three phones of Nokia - Nokia Lumia 930,1520 & 1020. I like Performance & Camera Suggest Me a Best phone. I want to know more about these two phones including errors usually occurs. Those who own these devices please tell me about it. I'm new to Windows Phone.

    I would suggest the 1520 as it has more features then the 930 such as glance and an SD slot which the 930 doesn't have

    Never had one personally but the best phone to have if your just into taking pics and want to make calls, texts and surf the net with the odd game thrown in. But if you want more then it will start to show its age. Yet again... No SD card support which is crazy. A phone made aimed at taking great pics... Yet can only store it on the phone which will soon fill up if you download apps on top

    No contest go for either the 1520 or 930, the 1020 is getting old and I already is losing features. Now between the 1520 and 930 if you don't mind the size go for the 1520 it has everything the 930 has plus an sd slot but if you think you don't need all the space go for the 930 its honestly one of the most beautiful phones I've ever owned. My 930 had a super heating problem but after update 1 its mild so after denim I think it should be fixed as well as improve my battery which got a little boost after update 1 as well. The 1520 idk about all the problems my friend who has one has not told me any problems to me. But really if you don't mind a 6 inch phone go for the 1520 but the 930 is amazing in its own right. Hope I helped

    I don't like the size of the 1520, but if you do, it's the best phone of those three. I've used the Icon, which is the same as the 930 and was not happy with the battery life, but I'm a kind of heavy user. Camera was amazing though, but the 1520 is basically the same camera.

    I'm a 1520.3 owner and very happy with it. It is poised for the future of Windows on phone. (Distinct from Windows Phone which is being phased out.). It is large, and therefor not pleasing to all. It does offer the best power hardware on Windows Phone right now. Some might argue the HTC One M8 is better... I say the processor is only marginally better to so small a degree that most won't even notice any difference between 1520 and M8 outside of a placebo effect. My reservations about M8 are in the area of update support, dependence on carrier and firmware. 1520.3 is Factory Unlocked and (due to Glance lacking on the 930/Icon) the only phone that will get every scrap of 8.1.1 + Lumia Denim. No other phone can make that claim. It's the perfect storm of hardware meeting cutting edge OS/Firmware.

    If you want a stop-gap device, something to tide you over until Windows 10 on phones rumors settle into facts and you don't want to break the bank... Look into a gently used or BNIB leftover Lumia 925. A great all-around workhorse. I loved mine. The 8.7MP shooter might look subpar on paper next to the 20MP on the 1520/930/Icon, but my 925 took excellent pics and was the best low-light-no-flash shooter I ever used.

    Pretty much the 1520/icon/930 are the best right now unless you really don't mind the fact that the 1020 is a dual core then you of course can choose that :)

    I liked Lumia 930 Stylish compact design, OLED Display etc... are main pros but main con is no sd card slot, I'm moving to buy Lumia 1520. One more question guys Is in the future Windows give OTG support? Because I like Lumia 930 So I ask so.
    Thank You all for helping me, Have a Great Day Guys :)

    the 1020 is out of the question unless all you want is a camera with phone/social networks included, apart from the camera, almost everything else is better on the 930 or 1520, personally I would go for the 1520, the 930 lacks many critical features in comparison while just offering "better handling" as a pro;

    *glance screen
    *microSD
    *mediocre battery compared to 1520

    If big screen isn't a problem, go for 1520, otherwise 930. 1520 is a bit better as it has expandable memory & glance, but 930 is an excellent device too, if someone doesn't want 6" device
