Nokia Lumia 930 is a high-level Windows Phone 8.1 device released back in the year 2014, with a big 5-inches touch-screen, a high speed 2.2 GHz Quad-Core CPU, and 2 cameras, a 20 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front camera. Let's take a closer look at what this phone has to offer.

Nokia decided to power the Lumia 930 using a high performance Quad-Core processing unit running at 2200 megahertz, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 8974-AA chip and a huge 2 GB RAM. Graphic rendering usually uses a lot of CPU processing time, so this phone uses an additional 450 MHz Adreno 330 graphics processing unit to unload the CPU. A key advantage of this cellphone is its inmense 32 GB internal storage and even though it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it is still enough to store lots of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without even thinking about how much storage is left.

This cellphone is a compact device, taking into account that it packs a 5" display and it only has 5.39" long and 2.8" wide. Being just 0.39" thick,this phone is incredibly thin and stilized. This phone is sold in many color options like black, orange, green and white. It seems like Nokia decided not to care so much about the weight in this 5.89 ounces cellphone.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 20 megapixels back side camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. It is capable of filming videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 24 frames per second, and slow motion videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 30 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also includes a large number of useful characteristics like auto-focus, flash, optical image stabilization, fast burst mode, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

This phone has an astonishing 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 5-inches screen, giving this phone a very detailed graphical experience. This screen uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This device packs a 2420 mAh high capacity non-replaceable battery, which isn't very promising for a cellphone like this. According to Nokia, this cellphone has an aproximate talk time of 11.5 hs and a stand by time of 552 hours. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, though with such a big battery you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes a real problem.

This phone features wi-fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a modem or router), LTE (4G) high performance data connection and also HSPA+ data connection, that is a bit slower 4G variation or fast 3G internet connection, over HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

The Nokia Lumia 930 also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth phones and accessories), FM Radio, GPS and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This device is priced only 305 dollars, which is a great offer for an impressive phone like this. If you will use this phone for playing games, need a phone for work, love photography or want a phone to mostly use social networks and internet browsing, this cellphone is definitely a great option .
