I have 830 for a while now. It is really the amazing phone, I am happy I've left SGS4 behind. It is not a powerhorse, yes. But most games runs smooth, everyday performance is great and the camera is way better than SGS4. Battery back up is great too, wireless charging is also very handy.

Good News for Windows phone ussers - Microsoft is rolling out an update for the Lumia 1520, Lumia 1320, Lumia 930, Lumia 920, Lumia 925, Lumia 830, and Lumia 625 smartphones. After receiving the OTA update, smartphone users will get another mobile data setting for 4G, apart from 2G (GSM) and 3G (WCDMA) settings that existed already.
I love this phone. I just need some update here in the Philippines. Thanks. :)

annie, 16 Jul 2015Sorry about your experience,my camera goes black after less than 24hrs of purchase.I'm return... moreSame camera thing happened to me past few months and i have mailed Microsoft support team many times and the worst part is they don't bother to acknowledge the mail. The only thing i got is a reference or ticket id which no one addressed till now. I had pinged them more than 10 times and nothing in return. Very pathetic service centers and customer support from Microsoft team. Anyways am very much happy with my seller SOUQ.UAE who refunded my whole money. Thanks to SOUQ team who refunded the money and i appreciate there wonderful customer support team. Now feeling very glad that i chose Souq for the purchase. Guys Please stay away from this pathetic device of Microsoft/ Nokia.
If you are ready to spend your hard earned money for a smartphone please consider other platforms. Microsoft Windows phone is dead and they cant even compete with other vendors who are doing particularly well. Now i am using my two year old Huawei Ascend P1 without any so called hiccups and huge lags. (I agree sometimes it will lag but its acceptable considering its age)

suchi1234, 24 Jun 2015Hey guys..
Which one have better battery life;
Lumia 735 or Lumia 830 ?????????
answer will... moreI have both devices for a wile. IMO are even on a normal use.
On a heavy duty the 735 consumes less energy than the 830. This fact is related to the AMOLED display.
praveen, 10 Jul 2015as am using 830 for 4 months...the bateery stands for me is upto one day...without using inter... moreI've bought the two devices. the 830 for me and the 735 for my doughter. both are very good devices with some diferences. If you are fun of selfies, the 735 is better. The 735 has a amoled display, but both devices have good visibility under sun light. if you are fun of photography, the 830 has one of the best main cameras on the market (optical stabilization), and believe me, it works very, very well, under all type of light. To finish my opinion I'll have to say that the Lumia 830 is well building (metal body), better than the 735, but the 735 has a good construction as but with premium plastic.
Both device battery last at least 2 days in a normal use. With heavy duty both battery last a day. The 830 have a little bit advantage in this particular matter.
Well two very good devices... but I'm fun of Windows Phone (more fluid than Android and less resources eater).
my lumia 830 battery lasts me nearly two whole days. its like a monster, and i have wifi on whole day at work and data on at home. i just love my lumia. i have a bright orange lumia 830.
