TECHNOBYTE for 10 October 2014

The Nokia Lumia 930 is probably the best Windows Phone that has been made to date. It balances everything with size and screen quality with an incredible camera. The 20MP camera takes incredible photographs. It runs Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone operating system and comes in a range of funky colours. The design is slick and smooth making the Lumia 930 one of the best devices in the market.
