Microsoft calls the Lumia 830 an 'affordable flagship'. We presume this means that this phone has all the features a flagship smartphone like the Lumia 1020 (Review | Pictures) should have, but is much less expensive. Two phones that immediately come to mind when we talk about truly affordable flagship smartphones are the Xiaomi Mi 3 (Review | Pictures) and the OnePlus One.It will be a tall order for Microsoft's new phone to be as disruptive as those two have been.

Nokia Lumia 830 Summary

In what can be clearly deemed as an effort to sell a camera disguised as a smartphone, Nokia created the Lumia 830. A smartphone running the latest Windows 8.1 software with a special Lumia update called Denim, which adds cool features to the 10-megapixel PureView camera. We captured some stunning shots and were generally floored by the performance of this camera. The performance of the phone otherwise is more than satisfactory and like Microsoft calls it, is truly an ‘affordable flagship’. Buy it if you can live willing to live with an ecosystem that is still a fair way behind the competition.

  • Its a very solid phone and showcases Windows 8 very well
    Corey Hardin (Apr 2, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    I upgraded from a 520 which I actually did really like after my kids destroyed my S3. At first I was a little miffed about the app selection, but its getting better. So, when it came time to upgrade I went with the 830. It is a very well designed phone. The screen is bright and sharp and this is a little odd but I Iove the feel of the screen. The construction is also very good, its a solid phone, the only knock I have on it is the back cover is terribly flimsy and sometimes hard to snap in . The overall performance of the phone is very snappy. Windows 8 (Denim Update) runs like silk and apps open quickly. The only oddity in peformance

  • BEAUTIFUL
    Chittresh Dhawan (Nov 2, 2014) on Amazon
    This phone is little expensive in my point of view. but windows OS is never about the specs. They don't need mammoth specs to run smoothly. Day to Day user experience is close to flawless. Camera is wonderful and build quality is awesome. Qi wireless capability is an additional plus to this phone.For those who want a good day to day use phone that looks beautiful can opt for this if they have extra money for aesthetics and build quality.For those who don't want to spend that extra bucks on the above 2 can take Lumia 730 which offers similar specs and runs better than MOTO G

    Anugrah (Oct 30, 2014) on Amazon
    The mobile is a beauty. Though seems a bit costly in terms of configuration but the looks make it worth the purchase. Pure premium. The windows platform and the nokia camera are just awesome. Just buy it without giving a second thought.

  • Last crowned jewel...NOKIA LUMIA 830 m/
    ankit (Jan 11, 2015) on Amazon
    NOKIA LUMIA 830 is a absolute beauty....don't hesitate to go for it...Win 8.1 is really snappy & smooth .The premium feel of this phone is the main thing you will fall in love with & secondly the 10MP Pureview Camera (phase 5) with OIS for blur free shots along with exclusive LUMIA camera apps..People say it's just a 720p IPS display for 5" screen but believe me the display is very sharp for even under 300ppi & the colors are vivid & punchy ..very close to AMOLED..but bit disappointed for not having deep black's as the AMOLED ...the blacks appears a bit greyish but are deep enough to please your eyes.Even for 720p the display is simply amazing just because of the quality it possess which even outshines the 730 display (with 312 ppi) in terms of sharpness & text reading.Quad core 1.2Ghz & Adreno 305 GPU with 1 GB RAM provide great speed & gfx ..are bit outdated as per present standards but the performance is simply breathtaking.WIN 10 update is awaiting which will be revolutionary & also the app gap is now closing.It is the last NOKIA branded phone along with the 730.The most beautiful & memorable departing gift that NOKIA has presented to its customers.
