Nokia launched the new Nokia Lumia 930 a few days ago on the occasion of the presentation of Windows Phone 8.1.

The design is distinct, but coincides with the use of aluminum for strengthening the structure. The Nokia Lumia 925 has a similar form to that of the Nokia Lumia 920, combining straight and rounded edges, but the truth is that the look is not very accomplished. Combining aluminum and polycarbonate is not entirely well integrated. Instead the Nokia Lumia 930 bears a simpler aluminum frame that much better integrated with the housing of polycarbonate in the rear. The Lumia 930 is large and somewhat thick, so it is also heavier.
The new model is the overall winner of the photographic section to have a PureView 20 megapixel sensor, while the Nokia Lumia 925 carries a sensor 8.7 megapixel. However, both share many additional parts are also critical in obtaining quality images, such as the Carl Zeiss lens, the optical stabilizer and dual LED flash for high power.

The Nokia Lumia 925 takes a chip Snapdragon S4 dual-core running at 1.5 Ghz and 1 GB of memory RAM. As always, remember that Windows Phone platform is a very fluid, so that the disadvantage of the Lumia 925 does not mean that there will be slowdowns.
The internal memory of Nokia Lumia 925 is 16 Gb, a reasonable figure, but falls a bit short when you consider that prevents enlargement. The Nokia Lumia 930, however, double the figure with its background of 32 Gb. Both have 7 Gb free in OneDrive, Microsoft cloud.
The Nokia Lumia 930 comes out standard with Windows Phone 8.1 is expected that the Lumia 925 will update later, so both shall be tied in features.
