holy carp(deliberately).. I just checked the price of the Lumia 1020..!! Its just INR25990....41Mp with OIS v/s 10Mp with OIS...!! Yeah I can live with the extra thickness..lol..!!
I am not sure how many of you aware that Samsung Galaxy K Zoom with 10X Optical Zoom is costing Rs.19000 in Amazon for past 2 weeks ... So, I am now its a great dilemma :(
Mus, 08 Sep 2014what the author fails to realize is that the lumia 830 is aiming for the also similarly specce... moreFirst the price in India is roughly the same as in Europe
Nokia said RRP Europe for the Lumia 830; €330 ($427.02) and Dual sim 730 is €220 ($174.17 exchange rates on 04/09/2014 whe
So whilst agreeing with you other comments mention the Xiaomi Mi 3 $250 and 4G LTE Mi 4 $400.
I like both phones but this is NOT eBbay.
Xiaomi is based in China #1 WORLD mobile phone users sell? now in India #2 WORLD mobile phone users.
The odds are stacked against a person acually getting this phone, and to register and fail time after time is NOT selling.
Those fortunate to actually get a phone are the lucky ones and at date 08/09/2014 there must be LESS than 200,000 Mi 3 or Mi 4, in all of India!
Here is the 830 side by side with the S5 mini http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=6638&idPhone2=6252 so clearly a challenger and maybe actually getting a 830 albeit only 10Mp to the Mi4 13mp is better as you WILL have a 4G LTE phone.
The Andriod app market is superio, as Window has many duplication and some poor apps, that simply can't be called apps and are so poor in describing themselves they have achieved ZERO downloads ZERO
The 830 does have some good features, and oddly enough is a MID range phone.
We only have to wait one more day to find out if this MID ranger is overall a much better purchase than the 4.7" Apple device, which may remain unaltered with an 8Mp camera and Dual Core
Lumia 830 is LTE phone and Moto G in India is not. So Cannot compare
NK7, 08 Sep 2014my assumption would be somewhere between 16-19k& what do you think the launch date will be?????
is it around 20 SEP?
the price is not that bad. they said it would be 330euros before taxes and subsidies (which would bring it close to what is reported). its probably slightly high as is every new phone before the official release. by the time the phone is out it will probably have dropped.
the reported for this article need to be sacked though, comparing this to a moto g is like comparing a Ferrari to a Skoda.
also noticed someone mention it was expandable memory to 32GB.. that's not correct, its expandable to 128GB + you get 15GB free cloud which wasn't mentioned.
Alan, 08 Sep 2014Haha they will sell 10 of these between October and December. Plus it has almost zero trade in... moreAlan,
do you know that in India Nokia still has a trade-in value when compared to other brands? India is still flooded with Nokia (Feature Phones), it would take sometime to regain the floor in India with WP...
People in India want the best in terms of quality and price. Apple iPhone has Quality but price is too high...
Others are crap.....
now i am really afraid about the price of L730.
i wish it will be 14k-15k INR
what do you think guys?????
i need your opinions to decide my next phone!
SunilShetty, 08 Sep 2014Even windows phone fan will never buy this :)So now you speak for all WP fans...... Dude... i'm going to upgrade my L720 to L830 and i'm a fan....
garv77, 08 Sep 2014In this price i can buy a brand new galaxy S4..... Use some brains lumia team...if you use yours you wont be buying a Galaxy S4 :P
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2014that is exactly correct. please decrease the cost of the phone otherwise no growth for Microso... morei dont think so, there is always a price for quality, 830 is fairly priced now, wait for 6 months it would come down as new devices are launched.
26k is too much...don't forget that it has same CPU & GPU as 630 which costs only 9k..
It actually looks half decent with that metal frame around the body.
Poor article!! Lumia 730 dual sim is the answer to moto g 2014.
doesn't have clear black display,
memory expandable only upto 32 gb,
it is 11mm thick ( in a world of slim phones that is FAT) ,
no carl zeiss optics in camera,
no 5mp front facing camera,
can't install an app directly on SD card ( what a shame!!!),
battery is weaker for a battery eating OS,
poor service support as compared to nokia care ( in India).
Please article writter use a wp phone before even writing such baseless articles.
Not all crappy phones with quad core & 1 gb ram (eg. lava, micromax etc.) are equal.
