P1012722
Here’s my photo diary of unboxing the Lumia 930 and plus my first impressions. In this age of smart phones, LTE and pocket cameras, We are not satisfied whenever there’s a new phone coming out, because we want more features and want more better quality of the entire wares of a phone.

But for Nokia, their age doesn’t end in the domination of Android and iOS, their come back and road to take over just took a restart when they launch the first and early models of Nokia Lumia and also N9, adding new OS and a camera with high megapixel drew attention of camera lovers and also Nokia fans.

In the long run of slowly crawling its way up with the bundled Windows 8 OS, Nokia is very confident that theirs Lumia is different among the smartphone brands. I observe that Nokia tried to be different and wants to upgrade more, they add the highest power and quality of their wares and unlike other brands that installs the upgrade in slow poke.
