The Screen is 4.98 inches ... not 5 ... This is different as some windows 10 features for 5+ inches models do not work for this phone.
This is my second Lumia device after the lumia 800. I have used the device for the past 3 months and here is my advice - DO NOT BUY IT at whatever price you get at whichever shop.
This is a horrible device and this is coming from an ardent Lumia and Nokia fan. I have used Lumia 800 for 3 years and always used Nokia phones since time immemorial, have suggested lumia to almost all my friends and family members and in fact forced some people to buy it. The Lumia 800 was an excellent device with its own software limitations however this Lumia 830 is a truly disgusting device. The amount of call drops I faced during the first 2 weels of usage over various networks in various cities is outrageous. On top of call drops the phone is truly dumb, i wonder why Nokia even dares call their Lumia phones smartphones. The internet on this device has a mind of its own, it works sometimes and it doesnt upon its own wish.
I am embarrassed in front of my friends when a simple google search takes ages to fetch results while my phone shows its on 3G. Its equally disturbing to see that once smooth windows phone interface is no longer smooth and swift but has lags and is awfully jittery. I showed the phone to the idiots at the Nokia care, all they did was format my phone and removed all the data stating it is probably a software issue. Call drop and internet issues kept on bugging me and on the second visit the customer care guys changed some component inside which finally made the calls marginally better. Dis-functional parts on a brand new phone, Kudos Nokia. And now the device refuses to connect to internet when I need, despite being on 3G and Wifi, I cannot use internet. My alcatel phone which costed Rs 3000 has faster internet that the Lumia 830.
I filed complaints after complains through various channels to Nokia to replace my handset and not once have they even assured to take action. Its been 2 weeks they have kept my device under 'observation' and I got a disturbing call 2 days back from the customer care that they are reviewing the device and will take 10 more days to revert with a solution. Upon threatening to sue them they were quite indifferent and the senior guy on the other side of the phone told me I am free to do whatever but they will not replace my handset. Wow! I have tweeted to Lumia about 5 times so far and they have not even acknowledged my cry for help.
A brand that has no reputation in the market and no trust from buyers, I wonder how they are taking their rare breed of customers for granted. Truly pathetic phone and an even horrible bunch of people running the company with no care for their customers. My humble request, please dont buy a lumia device, there are no apps truly to make your experience good and on top the devices come with no quality control.

Windows video player can't play these video formats .. So they won't show in the saved picture folder in photo hub.. Files shared via Bluetooth are saved in this saved pic folder . So better u install any other media player app like moliplayer,vlc player etc to view this video in photo hub n u can play this in those player..
Am using moliplayer .. It's really good. Also use file manager app to view all types of files and to manage(copy/move/paste/rename) ur files...
SILENT LOVER, 11 Jun 2015how can I use video calling in the nokia lumia 830?????????You need to use Skype.
Sign in with your Microsoft username in the Skype app and then you can video call people who are also signed in with Skype.
I used this phone the last 2 months and I don't have any problems.
It's a great phone - it has good battery life (1 day heavy use, 2 days normal use and 7 days light use).
Great low light photo's but not good zoom, front camera is average. Touch sensitivity on touch button's aren't very responsive, but not bad.
Windows phone OS isn't bad, but it short a few things. Personally, there isn't a shortage of app's.
I like this phone and I would recommend it.
I am planning to buy
anybody plz share your opininions.
is there any complaints.
features are good.how is its battery camera touch
Hi Not sure if this is regarding something batch wise. Because i got inquiries from other users who got camera problems requesting for any workarounds. So i doubt this is regarding some design issues or something. Please wait for the newer model because in many countries they have stopped L830 .
Sadly am using my L830 without main camera. Because of the Lack of support and very high repair cost. Camera repair will cost u 172$ and even worst is it will take some 1 month time to get the device serviced.
