Anonymous, 18 Nov 2014It is a perfect phone. But pricing is not reasonable.. 28k is not worth for this in comparison... morethe diff is build quality...in lumia 735 home, back n search button are on screen...but in lumia 830 these are beneath the screen...making screen larger.....many people wd b asking u its larger than 5'......but its 5'......

Hmm... Nah. It's more like a "swan song" to me.

Snapdragon 400 chipset is somewhat dated now
No headset included in the box (neither in Europe, nor in the US)
I have had my 830 for just over a month which was a replacement for my damaged 920.
Worst thing about the 830, was the sales girl tried to talk me out of getting it, says there aren't a lot of apps, I asked her what apps were missing she said facebook. So I said ok, I want it anyways. I really think competitors are paying these sales people to turn people away from Windows Phones.
I have not had any issues, first thing I did was to buy a 32 gb MicroSD for $20.
I was a 3 generation iPhone customer, 2G, 3Gs, 4S, just got fed up of how boring and limited the iPhone is. Had an Android for a couple of weeks, hated how buggy and sluggish the OS was, same crappy experience as on my old Samsung Tab 7.
I still remember how useless the iPhone was until crappy apps started rolling out, took a long time for some of the apps to actually become polished like Facebook, that app always had issues on iOS.
With iPhone you always have to upgrade after two years the phone just becomes flaky and buggy.
Zayn Xhyk, 16 Nov 2014Really confused between L830 GS4 and Xperia z1 which is best guys?830
Wes, 20 Nov 2014You must have got a defective set. My 830 has no such problems.

Rich capture, Auto HDR, Dynamic flash etc.. would come in the forthcoming Lumia Camera update for 830.
