Earlier at Microsoft Build Developer conference, Nokia announced number of new smartphones under its Lumia family and these new devices become the first one that ships with Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. In previous post we compared Nokia Lumia 930 with Nokia Lumia 925 and Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 1020 and now in this post we are comparing Nokia Lumia 930 with Nokia Lumia 1520. If you are planning to buy either of these phones, then this post will be helpful for you.
In general, the Nokia Lumia 930 is the smaller version of Nokia Lumia 1520 and there are some differences between both devices & one of the obvious difference is in the physical design. Nokia Lumia 930 is thicker then Nokia Lumia 1520, the Nokia Lumia 930 features a combination of aluminium frame and polycarbonate body while the Nokia Lumia 1520 body fully made up of polycarbonate. The Nokia Lumia 930 uses a difference display technology when compared with the Nokia Lumia 1520 and apparently has a higher level of pixel density as well. Both devices has a full HD display together with the same 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM as well as the 20-megapixels PureView camera. Both devices equipped with four microphones that allows them to perform directional stereo recording which will be enhanced further with the support for Dolby Surround Sound Capture that arrives with Lumia Cyan Update.
The Nokia Lumia 930 does not support Nokia Glance feature due to hardware limitation. In addition to this, there is no microSD card slot in Nokia Lumia 930 and you are more comfortable with Nokia Lumia 930 as it can be easily placed into your pocket when compared with Nokia Lumia 1520.
When compare both devices are remarkably similar but the difference in screen size and the option for expandable storage being the major deciding factor. According to me, the Nokia Lumia 930 seems to tune with your style.
