This particular phone is my first ever Windows Phone device after I had left Android some two years ago. Now running on the very latest build of Windows 10 Mobile v1709 at the time of this comment posting, this is now my daily driver. I have all the essential apps that I needed most and the camera is just superb as well as frequent update and security patches, so I don't see any reason on jumping ship for now.

Text and call should never be a problem whatsoever. WhatsApp and Telegram are still fully supported and up-to-date.
junior, 27 May 2018well, i want a daily drive fone,....browsing is part of it, i should be able to text,call ,wha... morei hate to say dis but u got only two options now, Android n iOS, if u want better feature Rich, Better Customization, nd between alot of price range, manufacturer, hardware etc options it'd be Android, and if u want longer term software nd security update with smooth, fast nd preminum time app experience than go for Apple. as of now at dis stage i won't suggest anyone to invest on any other OS, after spending hard earned money people need some future proofing in terms of company support unlike microsoft, wat they did with their mobile devices.

Anonymous, 26 May 2018@ blackberry fan, does the lumia 830 heat wen browsing ? does it support operamini ??Browsing is the only area where windows mobile still lacks, nd far behind from android chrome, iOS Safari for that matter, in terms of performance, smoothness, nd broken pages very frequently browsing with multiple tabs... Won't recommend if u r looking specifically for browsing experience... Other than that its nice fluid, smooth UI experience, best Sound, DOLBY (Lumia 830), touch etc...

I have a Lumia 830, and it is one of my favorite phones. I've kept it on Windows 8.1 denim because that is a stable and mature OS (ignore Win10 Mobile). The UI is smooth and responsive, and homescreen is highly customizable. I've posted many photos of multiple sizes as tiles on the homescreen to give it a unique and fun look. Battery life is solid, battery is removable, call quality is good, and the smaller form factor is one that I prefer in this age of oversized, fragile phablets. I installed very few apps on the phone, so the poor Windows apps store doesn't bother me. I can make do mostly with what is already on the phone, and I don't use social media, either.
You'll get more OS updates on iOS. You'll have more apps on Android. Blackberry gives you a physical keyboard. But if you want a true NOKIA Lumia phone, try the 830, or 1520 (probably the best all-around Win8 phone), or 1020 (awesome camera that still holds up today).
This is by far the best phone I've had the chance to work with in regards to internal hardware components and software implementation, going from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows Phone 10, was like turning on the main light in your living room and switching off that desk lamp that could barley light the room. I found it to be by far more consistent, performing and overall better. Just the adition of IE Edge implemented makes such a HUGE difference, I can view websites in their full view or their mobile view and lag, at least when everything in the page is compatible. To all those that have issues with their camera. I've learned too many times, the hard way that backing up you're phone is a must. So, backup your data, restore to factory defaults' and download latest update for windows phone, once installed, restore again your phone (as it will use the newly downloaded and updated Windows data and remove any residue from the update process, such as temp files). After which, you can restore your data using the internet settings options. Update Facebook and any other social apps that you may have before doing any picture uploads.
Ransford, 17 Jan 2018I won't to use it but I cant when I insert sim card is request unlock code to access
When I use my camera it's says,something went wrong.
I can't use my Facebook messenger because Microsoft says they don't support the app any longer.
830 has 2 advantages, I love its camera quailty, captured quite natural photo. Second one is the speaker quality, very clear and loud, could be the one of the best out there. Sadly, the camera not working, maybe will send to repair in future.
