"Designed to fit comfortably in your hand and in your pocket, the Nokia Lumia 930 comes in colours ranging from stylishly subtle to vibrantly vogue. And with a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 4G LTE connectivity, built-in wireless charging and a 5", Full HD display with astonishing sunlight readability, and it's all the great Lumia innovation wrapped in a premium package."
