@fireblade... To solve your camera problem Please upgrade your l830 to windows 10 build 10166. And enjoy.
Lumia 830 has this main camera problem which shows something went wrong and neither any of the resets-soft/hard or even flashing the firmware using navifirm versions will help resolve this issue. This has something to do with the hardware or probably a faulty main camera module. I bought my unit from Souq.com at a reduced price and i had doubts even at that time about the pricing then only i came to know that they were dumping faulty batches trough souq.com and cheating customer i am sure many of the customers facing this problem would have bought this in UAE would be tru souq.com
in real world performence windows is better than android! it is lag free! im using nokia lumia 830 and it is great! you never need a ton of aap! as well as we use 40-50 apps in genaral! you get them easily from wstore. i was really shoked when i saw xperia z3 lolipop v5.1 using 67% of ram whether l830 using 48% of ram! for a daily driver windows phone are better! battery performence, touch wz are great! for an android phone you must use antivirus and clean app but windows don't need! windows is super optimised! lag free! go for lumia! go for windows!

If someone co... moreTry both in the stores, basically ur just choosing between an android or windows phone. U will only b disappointed with 830 on the quantity and even the quality of apps but windows phones never lags and really fast. Get the g3 if u prefer android after trying both systems

Nokia Lumia 830 is the best phone that i had purchase ever in my life. I m using this phone since November 2014 and never comes complain uptil now. when it launch after a week i purchase. But a Battery is backup only 1 day but overall its good.
My ratings is 8/10 ********
well i have tried everything to sort out this "something went wrong" problem in lumia 830....soft reset .....hard reset.....unistalling and reinstalling apps.....cheking various settings but of no use.....i think its not just a simple issue....may be a deep software or totally hardware failure.......service centre is only viable now.....don't know how long they will take .....MICROSOFT......DAMNED.....
I have 830 for a while now. It is really the amazing phone, I am happy I've left SGS4 behind. It is not a powerhorse, yes. But most games runs smooth, everyday performance is great and the camera is way better than SGS4. Battery back up is great too, wireless charging is also very handy.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2015I am alsoSame here. Only had it for 8 days, "Something went wrong" msg appeared on any camera apps. bad bad bad.
