Upon placing your order for the Lumia 930 you can expect a steep upgrade in features from the Lumia 925. For one you will be looking at a bigger screen with far sharper images.
While the 925 had a 4.5-inch screen boasting 768×1280 pixels, the new and improved 930 comes with a 5-inch screen and a 1080×1920 pixel full HD display.
The camera is significantly improved as well; the Lumia 930 comes mounted with a 20 MP camera at the back which is capable of high quality video.
The 925 came with an 8 MP camera. Underneath the casing, there is a huge change in processing power with the 930’s CPU offering processing speeds of 2.2GHz, a significant improvement on the 1.5GHz of its predecessor. There is a RAM upgrade of 1GB as well.
While other phone makers fret on how to make their devices slimmer and sleeker, the 930 seems to fly in the face of such concerns.It is heavier than the 925 by some margin and thicker by more than one millimetre.
