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

  • A Premium phone, worth the purhase
    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.

  • 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

  • Great phone with decent specs!
    S. Jose Daniel (Dec 11, 2014) on Amazon
    This is my second windows phone after Lumia 800 and my 20th phone after nexus 5 (which had a pretty good android os but let down by poor battery life and horrible camera). I wanted a phone not so big and with plenty of battery life, great camera, call quality, offline maps, well integration of social network and yes good gaming experience. Some of these, i missed on ios and the battery thirsty android. So just gave a shot at Lumia 830 even thou i was familiar with the OS with my past experience with Lumia 800 2yrs back.Advantages:1. 10mp Pureview OIS camera (way excellent than 8mp competitors)2. Durable and slim design, aluminium frame with no coverage issues (see images)3. Expandable 128GB slot excluding the 16GB inbuilt (Nexus 5/4s 16gb is limited to 12.28GB)4. 5'' Clear black IPS 720p display with oleo-phobic coating is easy to clean now. Gorilla 3 addition is great.5. Great 2200mah battery with over 12hrs hardcore use and 25+hrs light use. (Nexus/4s/5s/5 all died within 8hrs limit!)6. Good 1.2ghz quad core snapD 400 chip with adreno 305 gpu and adequate 1GB ram (8/10 gaming experience)7. LTE support (Cat 4 speeds)8. NFC, wireless charging and bluetooth 4.0Disadvantages:1. For the premium price paid you can get a 1080p display phone!2. SnapDragon 400 is somewhat pricey for a phone for 25k! SnapDragon 800's are available for this price.3. Nano sim slot placed between the battery waist! No hot swap here. (see images)I am aware it is a flagship device and the last phone to bear the iconic "Nokia" badge but the premium price for a phone with mid-range chip is somewhat pricey. The same chip is found on Lumia 730 with a better Amoled display with slightly better display ppi. But missing premium option like even a camera key! Nexus 5, LG G2 and Z1 compact are other options with a higher 2.2ghz snapdragon 800 chip but not as good as Lumia 830 when it comes to the ratio between the enormous battery and snappy snapdragon 400 processor. My previous phone was a Nexus 5 which had a pretty good performance and eye popping screen with 445 ppi! But these plus points turned out to have a disappointing battery and camera quality (awful quality, my sisters Lumia 720 had an even better 6.7mp camera). Snapdragon 400 maybe too pricey for a 25k device but windows phone 8.1 doesn't need hi-fi specs to run the OS. Windows 7.8 even ran fine on single core 800ghz with 256mb ram device namely Lumia 510. But here you gt a quad-core chip (thou under-clocked at 1.2ghz) with adreno 305 gpu and a 1GB ram adequate to even fiddle while editing HD videos using Movie Creator app. Games like Modern Combat 4 and 5 never hung up, crashed or heated up my device. There is zero heating issue or hangups on my device. The 2200mah battery is spectacular. The micro sd slot is swap-able. Ending my review finally talking about the built quality. Its 10/10! Perfect, rigid and yes Nokia standards. The design resembles iphone similar network band gaps and yes the 930 itself. The rear camera and led are encircled by glass made material with is good. Even the buttons are metal made. I just hope the metal frame does't dent or fade off like on 5/5s! Hope this review was helpful. (Images are of my own handset)
