This strik­ing new flag­ship phone from Mi­crosoft and Nokia is Win­dows Phone’s best chance of go­ing toeto-toe with the likes of the Sam­sung Galaxy S5 and HT CO ne M8 yet.

love Im­mac­u­late build. Ter­rific cam­era. Beau­ti­ful screen. Win­dows 8.1 looks great hate Just not enough apps T3 says The most pre­mium Win­dows Phone in a while is quite a stun­ner

There’s a lot rid­ing on the Lumia 930. As the most highly specced Win­dows Phone we’ve seen in some time, this could be the one to have An­droid and Ap­ple devo­tees ques­tion­ing their loy­alty. With a slick build that some would call eye-sear­ingly bright, and a com­pet­i­tive price, the Lumia 930 gets Win­dows Phone 8.1 off to quite a start.

The up­dated Win­dows Phone is a quick, good­look­ing OS , that just can’t seem to get past its app short­age. The Lumia 930 can’t com­pete with Ap­ple’s App Store and Google Play on vol­ume and va­ri­ety, but that’s its only real weak­ness. 4G, NFC, and 32GB of stor­age are all present and ac­counted for.

The AMOLED screen is lovely, too. A sharp, 5-inch, 1080p dis­play that’s com­pa­ra­ble to the Galaxy S5’s. And the cam­era is great too, with a 20-megapixel 1/2.5‑inch sen­sor that’s up there with the best.

If you can get past the un­der­whelm­ing app se­lec­tion, the Lumia 930 is a lovely piece of kit.
