Nokia Lumia 930 vs Lumia 1520 – The Last Nokia Review

Is the Nokia Lumia 930 a good buy and how does it stack up against the mighty 1520. This might be my last Nokia review.

  • The Lumia 930 was excellent when used with Windows Phone 8.1. With Windows 10 mobile, it was a disaster. First you had to pray that the microphones would survive the update (I made two 930s deaf in this way) and if everything worked, the battery performance wasn't very good anymore. My Lumia 1520 accompanies me comfortably through the day with Windows 10 mobile, although it also has to be plugged into the power socket in the evening (or my DT-901 Fatboy). In addition, the 930 doesn't have a glance screen, which really annoys me.

    Today I have my two 930s (black-white and black-orange) only for the showcase, while the 1520 has to hold out for a few weeks at least. I can do without Whatsapp, for Telegram I have Unigram, Spotimo as Spotify replacement and everyone knows myTube anyway. I'm still happy, although a Nokia 7 Plus is already here.

  • Why do you have a problem with the microphone of the 930? You clearly did not get the point of that hole. If you look well, it has FOUR of those holes,and they are carefully pointed in 4 directions, so the phone can record 4K video with Dolby Surround. Now that is EPIC!

  • I have never seen such a professional cinematography for a phone review, was like watching a commercial for a very high end product. Good job!

  • Nokia's design heritage is unmatch. It's very classy yet futuristic. The design interface was very well designed and well thought of. Too bad Lumia didnt reach the epic level it deserved. Nokia forevrr

  • Do you think you'll be reviewing the new Nokias?

  • To be honest, I've never believed in commenting on YouTube videos, but something about this made me do something I've never done before.

    There may be better reviews put up there by people (or organizations), but for me, this one has has to be the best (by far) that I've come across. There will be an obvious bias because I am a self confessed Nokia & Windows Phone fan too, but I'd like to believe that there's more to it than just a bias.

    Your cinematography, and your narrative strike a chord with the viewer in a manner that evokes emotions – and therein lies the brilliance of this review.

    And yes, I agree that the Lumia 920 (especially with Windows Phone 8.1) was the best Nokia Windows phone ever, very closely followed by the Lumia 930 – both of which I very proudly (and sentimentally) use even today! While 8.1 rocked on the Lumia 930, in some ways it got the upgrade it deserved with Windows 10 Mobile.

    I too believe that Windows Phone (and later Windows Mobile) was, and probably still is, the best mobile OS ever designed! And Nokia's iconic design prowess – with that emphasis on industrial design – was perhaps the perfect match for such an intuitive (and lightweight) OS platform.

    After all, in a world of all metal (or glass) designs today, how many phones are there which can hold their own with plastic (polycarbonate) casings! And in that classic timelessness of the design of the 920 (and the 930 to some extent) lies the brilliance of Nokia's design prowess.

    I write this at a time Nokia has made a return thru HMD Global, and after having got myself a Nokia 6 (out of sheer nostalgia & curiosity), I have to say that it just doesn't feel the same with Android! All of a sudden, specifications such as the processor and RAM started having a say in my opinion, prompting me to give feedback for a Snapdragon 630 (instead of the 430) and 4 GB of RAM – since the specifications (unfortunately) did impact performance – and my user experience.

    This is such a departure from the emphasis that Nokia & Windows Phone laid on user exeprience – as against specifications. The brilliance of Windows Phone (and later Windows Mobile) lay in how beautifully it worked on relatively lower hardware specifications – a testimony to the inherent design efficiency of the Windows Mobile platform – very similar to the philosophy of Apple for iOS.

    And so, predictably (and thankfully), Nokia has today announced a new (2018) edition of the Nokia 6 – with a Snapdragon 630 and 4 GB of RAM, – while retaining the industrial design brilliance of the 2017 edition.

    The eternal optimist that I am, I do hope that Microsoft makes a return with Windows Phone one day, hopefully driven as an outcome of Microsoft's current business strategy focused on the Cloud. Moreover, I am hoping that Microsoft's current Mobile strategy – of focusing on making available Microsoft apps on Android & iOS – will yield results, and in some way justify a return (one that makes business sense) to the Mobile OS world.

    There's always room for 3 players in any market – and I see no reason why Windows Mobile can't be that third player – after Android and iOS. Of course, for that they have to first overcome (the seemingly unsurmountable) app ecosystem challenge.

    Content is king – and if Microsoft wins the content battle on the Cloud (against Google & Amazon) – they will (eventually) win the Mobile battle too.

    And since design purity is so integral to the Windows Mobile experience – who better to partner with for hardware – than design stalwarts like Nokia (HMD), Motorola (Lenovo), and HTC – in future!

    Fingers crossed!

  • The same video recording?? Really?? NO WAY.. the 1520 video records 2160P 4K.. And the audio recording from the 4 mics blows everything away. No comparison

  • I cant agree it was the best phone. The previous version of the Nokia was simpler and easier to use. The camera of the 925 was terrific as to the operating system that took a while to get the hang of it.

    But I already know I am going to miss windows and Nokia's charm.
    The Nokia N8 and 1520 were my most beloved and enjoyable phones…

  • Duuuuude! This is like the best review video I've watched! Nokia was truly the best phone manufacturer on the planet. I'm starting to think their downfall was due to their obsessive need to make perfect devices at huge production costs and sell them at a fraction of that cost. In my opinion, selling off their phone division to Microsoft is one of the most painful take-overs in history. Right now, I would rather buy a refurbished Nokia than buy an equivalent Microsoft phone (or Samsung) at the same cost. My mum has owned a Nokia 1100 for more than 15 years now and, apart from the replaced battery, it still works perfectly till now. To keep the Nokia spirit in the family, all the smartphones I've owned have been by Nokia. My current primary phone is a 1520, the secondary phone is a 520 and after watching this video, I'm now looking to buy the 930 (new, used or refurbished) before it disappears forever. Nokia was truly the best.

  • I have the nokia 1020  50megapixel small fame one. the issue was it was so good but they made a mistake  without a lenses for example prime 16mm,35mm to start and macro lens. There was no macro. If someone can figure out to diy into medium format that would be great.
