I spent eight weeks with a super awesome Lumia 930 device as part of #Challenge930 run by @NokiaAustralia. I have summarised my opinions as to why I would choose to buy a Lumia 930 device.


Crisp super sharp 20MP camera captures even the tiniest of the details. I have used it to capture great moments in my life during this 8 weeks and every time I have a look, it brings back those memory again super sharp in my mind. Great moments, captured by great camera - I did not have to use my DSLR for taking pictures, Lumia 930 did a great job. Some sample pictures below.
1080p Display
Yes I love the 1080p display! Many times, I unlock the screen just to have a look at the clean and clear display, and for no other reason.
Powerful Lumia Apps
There are many wonderful apps developed my Nokia - the Lumia app.
Lumia Storyteller - which transforms a series of photos and videos into a great video. It is cool to be able to view a trip or occasion in the form of a quick 30 second video. Have a look at the video I made during this time summarising my day trips in and around Canberra - 
Lumia Refocus - allows us to take a picture and and gives us the ability to zoom on different objects on the picture dynamically, have a look at the one I made during this time -
Lumia Creative Studio - allows us to play with a picture and make it awesome. Look at the color pop I did on a photo below.
Developer Ecosystem
One more reason I love the Windows Phone Ecosystem in general is for the fantastic developer eco system, there are great Developer Benefits from Nokia - DVLUP, very helpful Windows Phone MVPs - who are ready to answer your questions anytime and guide you through to successfully publishing an application. Many developer camps to educate the developer community, events run by Microsoft and Nokia (DVLUP Events). It was in one such camps, that I was attracted to windows phone development and here I am now with more than 5 apps which are doing good in the Store. I was helped and guided by many Windows Phone super stars on the way and I am very grateful for that.
Who needs a fitbit when you have one of these on your phone? A real time, steps count tracker to help keep you fit and also tells you the calories burnt and time taken and also keeps the history.
With all the above features, why would you not buy one?
