Lumia 830 is well designed with aluminium with back as plastic . It feels good in hand with the width , Good camera especially Low light Pictures are great .
Apps run smoothly & multi-tasking is good , but games like Asphalt are not recommended for this phone . Front camera is bad as having 0.9MP due to rear camera 10 MP which is good at this price .
Got the new windows 10 mobile build 10536.1004, nice build version.

AnonD-386651, 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.
