Nokia Lumia 930 is probably Nokia's best smartphone ever. But, can it run at par with top flagship phones? Below are the specs for you to decide.
With a 5.39 x 2.80 x 0.39 inch dimension and a 167g weight, Nokia Lumia 930 might just be the most sophisticated handset Nokia has ever designed. It is made of metal, plastic and curved glass tastefully fused together.
The back of Lumia 930 is made of plastic with a matte finish, available in black, white, orange and green. The sides are made sturdy with an aluminum band while the screen is made of curved glass fitted from edge to edge.
Screen and Display
Lumia 930 sports wide AMOLED screen at 5 inches with 1080 x 1920 pixels (441 ppi pixel density). Current flagship phones, like LG G3 and Sony Xperia Z2, have wider screens, but Lumia 930's pixel density is on the average.
Lumia 930 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quadcore 2.2 GHz processor while other Androids had already moved on to Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, which features battery saving improvements. However, the 800 chipset is still faster than its later version. Additionally, Lumia 930 has 2 GB of random access memory.
This handset is run by Windows Phone 8.1 that, according to Forbes, can run toe-to-toe with Android platforms. It has a feature similar to Apple's Siri and Google's Voice Search called "Cortana."
Lumia 930 possesses a 20 megapixel camera unit like the Lumia 1520. It may not be as whopping as Lumia 1020's 41 MP camera unit but the images are still superb.
Nokia's latest handset is packed with a 2420 mAh battery and offers up to 11 hours and 30 minutes of talk time. Most Androids are already able to squeeze a 3000 mAh battery in their system.
The Ultimate Decree
Lumia 930 is the best smartphone created by Nokia and its Windows Phone 8.1 is a great improvement of the handset. Whether or not it can join the race for the best smartphone, it is quite there.
