Nokia announced its new Lumia 930 smartphone last week, and now our partners at Engadget have had a chance to get their hands on it. So what did they think? Well, in a sense you already know the basics. That is, if you've used a Nokia phone at any time in the last few years.

Put simply, it's a well-built, pretty beautiful piece of hardware with no real frills other than an excellent camera. It just happens to be running Windows Phone. The new 8.1 build of Windows Phone, yes, but Windows Phone all the same.

But to get a true sense of how the phone feels in the hand, how it performs and if this really could be the first mainstream crossover megahit for Microsoft's still fledgling OS, you should let us take the reins and put it through it's paces.

Above is our first hands-on of the new phone. Below is how the handset compares to its competitors.
