First Look: Nokia Lumia 930 is a colourful, fun Windows Phone 8.1 device

2:21 /

The Lumia 930 has an attractive body, a great camera, the latest Windows Phone 8.1 software and a vibrant, full HD display. Hit play to watch our video review.

I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNET and this is a Nokia Lumia 930. It's the latest flagship from Nokia, sporting a host of top-end specs, the latest Windows Phone 8.1 software and a fun, colorful design. That plastic back panel is surrounding bed a metal frame which makes it feel good to hold and gives it a certain premium feel. The five-inch display is not the most compact of phones, but that display does have a full HD resolution. Which along with its high brightness and bold colors, makes it a good choice for watching Netflix when you're bored. Drawing on the latest Windows phone 8.1 software,, which brings tweets like a notification bar, to the familiar colorful piled interface. It's as simple to use as ever, but it still suffers from it's poorly stocked app store. Sure there are a bunch of big titles on the shelves now. You still nearly always receive new apps long after Android or iOS. If it receives them at all. If you're keen on getting the latest apps and games as soon as they're out, Windows phone is not for you. It's running on a 2.2 gigahertz quad-core processor from Qualcomm, which provides plenty of power for anything you're likely to want. 2420 milliamp battery is powering, which [UNKNOWN] reckons will provide over 15. Hours of 3G talk time, I [UNKNOWN] up a level on the ambition side, as in my own use, I wasn't hugely impressed, with fairly demanding use, I couldn't quite squeeze a day out of it. If you keep screen brightness down, avoid video streaming and gaming, you should be able to get a day, but you'll definitely need to give it a charge. The night. At the back is a 20 megapixel camera, which I found capable of taking some impressive shots. Sometimes struggles in areas of high contrast, and there's no auto HDR mode, but Nokia's camera software makes it easier to take manual control of settings to get better shots. The Lumia 930 did a lot of things right. It looks fun, has a brilliant screen, its software is easy to use, and it has a great camera. So that your main concerns will no doubt. And have a great time with it. It's app selection still let's you down though. And, it's battery really isn't anything to write home about. If you're after for a good all around phone that is different from your mates Android phone. It's arguably the best Windows phone device to consider. The top Androids like Galaxy S5 and or LGG3 offer similar specs and there's no worries about app choices. [MUSIC] I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNet. And this is the Nokia Lumia 930. [MUSIC]
