kgautham, 05 Sep 2015do really lumia 830 support 4g
Yes 100%, coz i'm using Airtel 4G, it shows 4G and speed is 10Mbps+.
Enquired why it is low in chennai when i get 20mbps+ in bangalore, Airtel exec told me that it is a soft launch in chennai.
You need to have latest update Microsoft which will enable 4G.
Happiest owner of Lumia 830.
Today, I've received the lumia 830 from my canadian carier...
The phone look nice 8.5 on 10. it is small , thin and amazingly heavy.
We screen is eye friendly.
Windows 8.0 It's take more than 1 hour 30 min to do the updates cause it come with windows 8.0 on it.
The ergonomie is bad(3 on 10); there no way to operate it with one hand and my thumb. I have to figur where to put mymy finger(maybe it is a lefty design?)most of the time my major is right on camera spot. The power button is to close from the volumeand far from a useless camera button. The frame is slippery. the is no question that I will need to havea gummy sheild case. For resuming hard to operate, easy to drop it, looks easy breakeable.
The processor is less powerfull to run windows 8.1 than was the S4 kraft dual core 1.5ghz... the gain is seems to only on the battery life. Not amazing but better.
Also we regret the impossibility to choose to have less tile on the home screen. Lihe having two rows of tiles instead of three like now.
Before that day I was using a HTC 8x c625a 8GB version.with an s4 cpu and 1800 a/h battery and the battery was the only major con of this phone really. The lake of lte 2600mhz wasn't really matter. The band 4 (1700-2100 mhz frequencies) was doing a good job. But the tiny ROM (only 8 gig available on my version),and the lake of microSD port, make this device a non upgradable to Win 10. Ergonomy of the 8x is 9 on 10.size ratio 9.5 on ten, Cpu power 9 on 10. Camera was the best to use in normal world. if you except lumia 1020, 1520, Lumia 929 and 930.
My recommandation; buy a lumia 930, or a Lumia 640 lte, 640 XL lte or a htc 8x c625a 16GB avoid the rest!
First time i encountered a wifi issue. Then i did the hard reset and the problem got resolved. I visited few stores to buy a screen guard and a cover for the phone and to my surprise the phone is no more selling in stores and model is closed and no proper covers are available in stores, hence ordered one online. It is really surprising for me that the way Nokia projected this phone and withdrawn the model less than one year which looked very odd to me. This one thing made me to rethink to consider any microsoft phone in future for sure.
I'm using my Lumia 830 since Feb 2015. It use working fine and I was very satisfied. But suddenly on last Monday(31st Aug) I noticed that torch is not working. Then I noticed camera is also not working, all camera like Nokia camera, camera 360, imagine cam. Apparently no reason for this. I did soft reset and then hard reset. But no result. Then I approached to the care centre at Howrah, who told me to wait for min 2 weeks. Hand set to be sent to the factory and then they will tell me weather it is repairable or not. I don't know what to do. It is my dream set and very costly.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2015got update 3. after that while using my phone get restarted. solution plzDowngrade to factory ROM and do not update at all. Some of Nokia devices had this restarting issues after updating
I've had my Lumia 830 RM 985 for two months now, and true to form the main camera has stopped working. Only the front facing one works. The flash doesn't work either. These symptoms I've seen reported about this model handset all over the internet in about the same time frame. I've had 4 windows phones for the last year and a half. Lumia 520,Lumia 820 and now Lumia 830. The first two models stopped working within days to months of purchase and for absolutely no apparent reason. My Lumia 830's camera stopped working yesterday.. Again for no apparent reason. It should be noted that all three of these handsets wet brand new devices.
I'm quickly losing faith in the Lumia brand and beginning to think that the quality control measures are just not there for these devices. As much as I've come to like these handsets I've pretty much had enough.
I bought my 830 this week. So far I don't have major complaiments
There is a test to see if the camera will develop this issues now?
If I known that the camera will get errors I wil return this now.
So long so far... No problems...
I love the interference of the phone, its just amazing and I play everyday asphalt 8 and it never hangs. It's just a cool device so far...
got this phone for 8 months , camera launch button freezes
and calls only can hear from speaker phone , piece of junk
coming from samsung note 1 also price of junk
I have problem with flight mode which cannot switch off. I cannot even activate my datapack. when I connect wifi after one minutes flight mode switch off but when I remove from net again flight mode on and I cannot use my phone.\
I have an update, today my phone suddenly started working, it still is on Denim i not done any recent updates, now flash and camera works, only thing i can remember is using the phone very heavily yesterday with maps, navigation music and data for almost twice charge cycles.
akbar2020, 22 Aug 2015Hi Louie, No i had used it with the pre-installed windows 8.1 gdr1. And got this camera iss... moreOh !! these many issues. I agree with certain things with you yes Windows OS still not looks like a professional one, but fluidity is good as if you see many of android phones lag many times. In my case i seems to be lucky that i didn't faced any issues including camera and I can rate that camera is one of the best and its a specific reason to choose this mobile. I took some wonderful shots with this and for day to day business use, this is just worth for me. Yes I cannot call it as a flagship but looking forward to see the microsoft surface phone..looks quite interesting to me with specs and looks wise
