I am a new WP User who was sick and tired of using the Chinese make LAGROID (oops Android) Devices. As all Android Phones, will be amazing at the start and will slowly lose its pace and speed within few weeks. You will be able to see remarkable lag once you download apps.
Tired of the same, i took a risk based on all your comments and also loved the slim mobile LOOK WiSE & bought a new Nokia Lumia White colour on 21st Oct'14. Few comments based on last 10 days usage :-
1> Intial learning curve to find apps & get a hang of using the WP from TOP to Bottom swipe rather than Left to Right swipe in Android phones
2> Cannot provide WallPaper like Android...
1> Excellent Camerra for an average users. Night camera with different lens available in STORE is mindblowing.
2> Selfie shot best to be taken in daylight condition
3> Back Camera one of the best. My friend had recently bought a Samsung Grand & when we compared our shots, Lumia 730 stood out......
4> I have till date installed close to 70 plus apps and all are running smoothly & without any issues with LIVE UPDATE
5> Usability of LIVE TILES is amazing. Still exploring... But to site an example, Booked a ticket & it gave an option of saving the same as a LIVE TILE.... very much convnient!!!
6> Sleek Model & so slim that it tends to slip out ... LOL Dropped it once....NO damages
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2014Dear, wp8 lvr, my dream phone is l830..its review have been good so far..but its price is2 exp... moremy favorite is 1520 but try to understand it is not possible to get it at low price...
specs sheet shows same ram and cpu for 730 n 830 but internally ms improved 830's performance to compete with any other flagship device.. also battery is same but in 830 its high rating battery than than 730...
so they are setted it very well but don't expect 830 below 25k... I know 29k is overpriced but ebay india selling it at around 25k n if you find some cashback codes then you even take it at less price..
830 is performing very well even better..
just give time to ms to fix issues regarding to 730...

wp8 lvr, 30 Oct 2014if you check your list then you understandthat all noted issues are os related...
my opinion... moreDear, You are very right that all mentioned issues like
1. Mobile Restarting
2. App hanging
3. Improper response of keyboard while charging
4. Mirror image with Selfie app
5. Screen flickering with some app
are software bug but if you read user opinion of L830 there is no such complaint.
It is not acceptable by any user who trust in Windows Phone and Nokia reliability.
Better not to buy this phone now.
wp8 lvr, 30 Oct 2014guys WhatsApp updated now on wp store.. download and enjoy... it is very fast now... with ne... moreyaa bro... a butterfluid experience in whatsapp n really ui has become very clean. well for those who r asking abt mxplayer n fileexplorer, for them as already mentioned go for moliplayer or ccplayer n lot of file managers r present files from microsoft n also metro file manager r awesome. friends those who were in android i just wanna say wp has all necessary apps, ofcourse names will be different and yes.. in android 100 apps for file manager wp has 20 but all r quality n i think 1 app is enough for one job

Hello all the negative reviewers,
We all of us very well know that windows is a part of our daily lives,and its promoters are biggest donators to mankind.so when someone says they have given only 512 mb ram instead of 1 gb(as promised) in lumia 730, doesnt look good.am i right guys?
kumarshiva, 30 Oct 2014please somebody, highlight on OTG feature in windows 8.1...also..does it lag while playing HD ... moreNO OTG in 8.1.
Does not lag on HD games.
Use Nokia Playto app to share your media on the TV (both tv and hand set on same network)/Use built in screen projection to mirror on tv/or any hdmi miracast dongle.
Was a WP user. now jumped back after junking my Idolx+ and Mi3 to be back in WP dualsim. and do not regret.
Online everyone have increased cost to try make quick profit. I also bought from local mobile shop at 14,200.
