Nokia lumia 930: Processor & RAM

Nokia lumia 930 runs on Windows Phone 8.1 Cyan OS and has also got an optional upgrade to versions like Lumia Denim, Windows 10 update etc. In case you're scared of losing your favorite or most used games/applications as you move from Android phone to windows phone, then you don't have to worry much. Windows Phone store has also got all them already. If you don't believe us then search in the store and you'll find it true. Windows also has got tons of exclusive applications and games for lumia which are really astounding and time killing. Gone are the days when Windows phones used to come without a file manager, notification center etc. Today the Windows phone OS is outstanding and user-friendly.

The extraordinary smartphone from Nokia (Microsoft) is powered by an impressive 2.2 GHz Quad-Core processor which works much faster than the swapping of your fingers. In old days, loading, lag and crashes etc where the defects for lumia. But now it's one of the best responsive and fastest phones in India which is also faster than the Octa-processor of Android phones. Sounds impressive right?

Lumia 930 has got 2 GB RAM in it. It's neither too good nor too bad. But I must say that this powerful Windows phone is best to buy for this price. It has got the capability to run any game in full HD graphics without single lag. It also supports huge top-end games like N.O.V.A, Halo: Spartan Assault, Asphalt 8, Mass Effect: Infiltrator, GTA San Andreas and many more. With the help of Dolby Digital audio feature, the 3D audio in the games like Halo: Spartan Assault and all feels real while used with a good quality headphone. We suggest you to use a phone case if you're a real time gamer since the metallic border of the phone gets quite a bit hot during prolonged gaming sessions. I recommend transparent cases to maintain the phones beauty.

Nokia lumia 930: Camera

Lumia 930 sports an exceptional 20 Mega Pixel Carl Zeiss PureView camera with Dual LED-flash. It's the best camera phone that is available below 45000INR in India which dominates the 13 MP mobile phones like Nexus 6 and LG G3. Also the photos taken by lumia 930 are comparable to the classy iPhone 6. The exceptional top-notch 20 MP camera is almost like a DSLR camera which captures high quality images with no grains. When it comes to the front view camera, it might sound silly with the 1.2 MP. But remember, it's not just 1.2MP, its 1.2MP (HD) that produces high definition images which is much better than the 2 MP Nexus and LG G3 cameras. You can't possibly find a better front-facing camera with "Lumia Selfie" app at this range.

Nokia lumia 930: Display & Speakers

While telling about display, it is the most beautiful part of the phone. Lumia 930 comes with a big enough 5.0 inch display with 1080x1920 pixels and a remarkable ~441 ppi pixel density. Simply 'wow'..even the classic legend iPhone handsets doesn't offer this clarity. It uses a Black Display Technology with scratch proof Cornering Gorilla glass 3. The fabulous display of lumia 930 turns the pictures into real world objects. It's incredibly crisp, vivid, bright and clear. To be honest, if you set the accent colors to black (in settings) then you won't be able to find where the screen ends. It'll totally disguise with the phones body. Even though selling price is 37000 RS, it stands one among the top smartphones within 45000RS. Hats off to Lumia.

Nokia has provided Xbox Music, musicXmatch, Nokia MixRadio and more in Lumia 930. When used with a good headphone, it gives theater-like effects with powerful beats and crystal clear sound with the "œDolby Digital Audio" feature. Nokia WH-208 is the stock headphone which comes in the box and incase if you're not satisfied with the headphone then buy Sennheiser CX180 Street-II (under Rs 1000) if you're looking for In-ear headphone or else check the list of 5 Best Over-Ear headphones under Rs 1000 for the top Over-Ear headphones like Philips DJ SHL3000/00 and Sennheiser HD 180. Lumia 930 has also got in-built equalizers where you could tweak in with your choice. Memory

Nokia lumia 930: Memory

The phone comes with a pretty decent internal storage of 32 GB. The actual user storage is 29.7 GB as the other space is filled with its OS and virtual memory. Lumia 930 doesn't support SD cards (can't use external memory cards) which I feel is the most disappointing aspect of lumia 930. They should have at least increased the internal storage or else should have provided SD support for ample media and gaming space. Apart from that, lumia has got 25 GB OneDrive space for backup. The 32GB seems 'OK' and that's quite a lot of space for normal usage.


Nokia lumia 930: Cortana

Cortana is your personal virtual voice assistant just like siri on iPhone. But Cortana has succeeded to outshine the popular siri app with its top-notch features. She(Cortana) has got many talents and she doesn't hesitate to show that to us. She can sing, crack jokes, gives you latest breaking news, events, weather and lot more. Right now Cortana isn't officially available in India. But don't be disappointed, through settings you could get her by switching your region to "œUnited States".


Nokia lumia 930: Battery

Lumia comes with a decent wireless charging Li-Ion 2420 mAh battery which lasts for about 28 - 34 hours with normal usage and lasts for like 16-20 hours while high battery draining activities like playing games or internet (3G/Wi-Fi). If you're restricting your device usage with WhatsApp, Music, Facebook, weather and News then you could easily make it last for 2 whole days. The battery is excellent for lumia 930, but however 3000mAh could have been better on it.


Nokia lumia 930: FINAL VERDICT

Nokia Lumia 930 is the best Windows phone in India under Rs 45000 (even though it costs less than 40K) and one among the most popular smartphones we have ever seen. This legendary phone looks premium and is priced perfectly. The main highlight which grabbed lumia 930 to the top spot is its top-notch 20MP camera and its lag-free fast performance which actually plays a great role in gaming and other high CPU activities.
