I have been using this phone since a month from now. It is exceptionally good. Battery seems endless, no lags, great camera, classic looks and phone in hand feels quite professional, call quality is also great. But production has been stopped for Lumia 830 because Microsoft is planning for Lumia 840 with similar design and looks so it would be difficult to find this phone.

Cause if u don't do that you won't have access to the store.you can add account in settings => emails +accounts=>add account => Microsoft account.
But if u have entered your account and still have problems with downloading games you should go to www.windowsphone.com and download your games via computer and after that you should transfer the apk file to your phone.
At the end go to the store and press the install local apps and install your games.
I'm afraid you won't have your saved progress of the games in your new phone.

Reifer15, 19 Apr 2015I don't know what phone to buy: Nokia Lumia 830 Nokia Lumia 925; love the design but no memo... moreI had Nokia Lumia 925 but it needs repair. Memory is a problem on Lumia 925. 16GB is not much if you download off-line here maps, music etc. Camera is very good and phone has great design. Now I have Lumia 830 and I am quit happz with it. Battery is user friendly (old school), camera is superb, and you can expand memory with memory card. I liked more design on Lumia 925 but my suggestion go with Lumia 830 because it newer and beeter that Lumia 925. Also Lumia 830 has a live images which is a great.

3. All WP needs wifi to do phone update that bigger than 100MB via OTA. We can use Windows Phone Software Recovery Tools to perform update with PC, but we will loose all data.
I don't like applocker. It's like adding more layer to go before I can run an application. Application Corner approach is much better for me.

The phone costing 25000-35000 thousand but battery life is 7-8 hours only when you use data normal way for 1 hour and some calls.

Does not gets heated. Nokia Lumia 925 gets heated like hot plate in normal use also. And 830 is good phone but it's a problem occurring device, faulty device, that's why got discontinued.
I have been using my L830 for 3 months now and I felt completely satisfied until problems occured:
1. The battery life drains too fast. It even drains battery even if its on standby the entire day about 50%. It also wont survive a full day of usage from 8:00am (100%) to 6:00pm (10% below) with normal usage. I think the battery itself is not manufacturded well (for my phone only) since I disabled background apps and stuff to save battery.
2. Too much pressing in touch screen leaves a permanent blue faded mark (in my case) which is quite annoying to see -_-
3. Can't update my phone using computer. Only through wifi (a big disappointment since I dont have wifi but have unlimited data). The other problems can be manageable.
i had Win10 the other day, the MS Insider version.
there was no keybord when the phone have had asked me to enter password on startup so i had o reinstal W8.1 .
so don't make the same mistake 'till win10 is ready ;)
