Unboxing the white/gold Lumia 930 and Lumia 830

Earlier this year, Microsoft has announced special golden editions of the Lumia 930 and Lumia 830 for select markets in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. They share the same specs as the regular versions, but what's different is that they both have gold frames. We've already shown you the black/gold variant of the Lumia 930, but we just got our hands on the white/gold versions of the Lumia 830 and Lumia 930. Watch our unboxing video and photos for a closer look.

Nothing has changed inside these devices. The gold Lumia 930 still has a 5-inch 1080p display, 32 GB of storage, 2 GB of RAM, 2.2 GHz CPU and a 20 MP PureView camera. The gold Lumia 830 still has a 5-inch 720p IPS display, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD slot, 1 GB of RAM, 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, and 10-megapixel PureView camera.

If you're in the U.S., you do not get LTE on these phones due to the unique carrier bands. However, if you are on AT&T, you can get 3G HSPA+ data. 

The side and the back of the boxes also say 'Special Edition.' Inside the boxes, you only get the phone, USB cable, power adapter, and a quick guide. The white and gold version of the Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 is glossy. The black one has a matte finish, making it less shiny.

We're having a hard time picking which color we prefer: Black/Gold or White/Gold? Take a look at our photo gallery below and let us know which one you like!
