I bought a brand new 830, after 1 week without even using it a crack appeared, the smoothest crack i have ever seen, i didnt drop it.
Now yesterday i dropped it from 1 meter flat on the back and it looked fine, after two minutes it almost caught on fire.
the screen turned black like ink spreading, i touched the screen and it felt so hot, you could bake an egg on it.
pulled the battery out and tried to plug it in, but the phone turns red hot within a minute of being connected to the computer.
Sounds very save, if i left it inside after it dropped it would have burned my house down.

So either wait for new lumia devices or take the 730.
If somebody is not sure if the phone is good...It IS. Perfect in all situations except the fact that the wats up and the viber apps is not showing their notifications from time to time, but once you restart the phone its all back to normal. The camera is much better than all Samsung and HTC phones I have had before (Last one HTC One M8).
The apps are running lets say not really fast, but smooth enough not to make you angry.
Very good choice for the price. Enjoy! :-)
I have this phone since April and the camera, oh the camera is one of the best i've ever had, compared with a Galaxy S6, it obviously takes more defined photos because of the more megapixels, but the white balance, the contrast and light is way better on the Lumia, on the other hand S6 takes better the colors (a bit overexposed) but the images look more alive. Compared with Iphone 6, it wins in every way except opturation speed and that iphone 6 has slow-mo video which is a very nice feature.
DON'T UPDATE TO WINDOWS 10 BETA. I've done this with a china rom (bought it from Amazon) and it only gave me problems. Apps constantly crashing, even the start menu and lock screen crash. More slow in every way, from opening apps to turn on and off, or even unlocking the phone. Just wait till official windows 10 come out, because the beta for China sucks.
Hifriends... I want to buy lumia phone.. I am big fan of NokiA...

Has anyone tried updating your Lumia 830 to Windows 10? How was it? I need to install an app that only runs in Windows 10 that's why I am asking. Thanks for your reply.

I haven't experienced any problems with it till now. the camera quality is superb(tried it against an iphone 5s, and my phone fared better :D), i'd suggest one thing. go for the orange model. it looks gorgeous. I may buy an orange back cover soon :) but overall, an awesome phone :D

This phone does not keep up with technology and ATT does not care. Within 1 year, 17 applications I used regularly, NO LONGER are compatible with the phone. Called Steven in "ATT's highest customer service dept" in Ohio who said "nothing we can do about it". Therefore I have to pay the "lease" off at $315 for a useless phone in order to purchase an Android or Apple who DOES keep up with technology OR just live with not using any Applications! Really? Map Quest doesn't even work on this phone any longer!
No doubt its a nice mobile to buy,but the model is already withdrawn from market in India, you may get it online. Its not wise to buy a 1 year old model, when new lumia phones are already lined up
Hello, I am looking forward to purchse the Lumia 830 currently? What do you think is it a good buy even now? Any idea if the phone lags with the current insider preview of Windows 10 cause it has a Snapdragon 400 which seems to be outdated.. Any suggestions?
