Ned , 30 Jan 2017Hello guys,
I'd like to know who's running Windows 10 on this phone
If it's the anniversary ... moreIn my personal experience, the Nokia Lumia 830 just does not have the proper hardware to handle Windows 10 Mobile (Regardless of build/version). With Windows 10 Mobile installed on the 830, the phone becomes extremely laggy/slow and it is plagued with constant crashing of system critical functions.
I'm not talking about like the Facebook App, I'm talking about actual System Apps/functions/whatever you want to call them. For example, the Phone App/Function began "freezing"/"locking-up" the OS mid-call, which would make you lose the call and then have to do a battery pull to just get the phone to restart.
This was not related to "User Error", I have a lot of experience with/knowledge of Windows Mobile OS Devices/Platforms, so trust me when I say, it was solely related to the Hardware not being able to handle the OS - To clarify, the System Resources like the RAM/Processor/etc. could barely handle the load placed on them when just running the basic functions required for the W10 Mobile OS to run.
The minute you started running an app that needed significant resources to run or attempted to use a system function, the 830 would start to literally crash and burn...God-forbid you have like 2 or 3 apps going at once...The phone would probably go all "Samsung Note" on your ass...
You don't have to be Bill Gates to know that when supposed software/OS "patches" and updates do not resolve the problem, or in the case of this phone with Windows 10 Mobile on it, the "fixes" cause even more issues/crashes/etc, there is something else going on. Again, this is only one example of the multiple, multiple issues with what I consider "System Critical" that have continued to plague the 830 since the update to W10 Mobile.
Long story short, I guess, the Lumia 830 is a great phone, until you update to W10 Mobile - which makes the 830 essentially so unstable that it almost becomes completely unusable.
To drive the point home, I finally got fed-up with W10 and my 830, so I went out and purchased a Microsoft Lumia 950 (Don't buy the XL, trust me, the big screen isn't worth the headaches that the "liquid" cooling system can cause).
The Lumia 950 is not as aesthetically pleasing as the 830 (or any of the Nokia Lumia's for that matter), and it also feels "cheap" because it is basically all plastic, but what a difference in terms of the phone/hardware actually being able to run/handle W10 Mobile.
The phone isn't without it's little glitches here or there, but what Windows Operating System have you ever used that didn't do some weird shit every once and awhile??? Lol. However, for the most part, W10 Mobile OS, with the proper hardware (basically only the Lumia 950 at this point) is in my opinion the BEST mobile software out there - Everything is so seamless and it is simple, but fun to use if you want it to be, or you can dive deeper if that's what gets your rocks off.
Since really getting used to W10 Mobile OS on the 950, I can't even stand to touch an Android or Apple device...God I hate all the clutter on those damn phone...Again, W10 Mobile is neat and organized and really user friendly, etc. Just don't put it on the 830. Stick with the 950, or if you don't want to spend the big bucks on it, get a refurbished 1520
Now if we could only figure out something to do about the app store and the conflicts with app developers....
Hopefully this info helps you out with your decision!

How it is compared to Windows 8.1 interms of battery life and performing everyday tasks
I'm thinking to buy this phone (used) and im in doubt. Is there any hardware within issues? On what should I be aware when buy this phone? If the win8.1 or win10 is making trouble, can I change on my own?
Can anyone tell me plz, previously there were social apps integration on people hub, like fb, tweeter, linked in... Of course in windows phone 8.1
I'm facing issues there, it seems like no new news or feeds are getting refreshed... Any solution or anyone else facing so...???
I have one too, good battery life in wp 8.1, premium design, look at its specs, dolby audio, pure view , carl zeiss lense, wow.
Still going strong in 2017. amazing battery life (with battery saver around 3 days)
the only dowside is the 1gb ram but yeah its a great budget phone. can be had for around £35-£45 from ebay
Great phone. mine came with no wireless charging back panel for some reason :(
