Djeetn, 21 Dec 2014Hello, I use a Nokia Lumia 830 but I have a problem. It doesn't want to upload photo's or vide... moreIt doesnt like to download from the LTE network sometimes, but does fine on WiFi. Give that a shot when performing updates or downloading apps.
@Youssef kashef these days people prefer over saturated colors like in the samsung devices , so it really depends on preferences , and lumia 930 is thicker , heavier and doesnot look as good , i believe the 830 is the best all round lumia devices .
Zeyad, 23 Dec 2014I have been using this phone for almost 10 days now , knowing that i used to own an iphone and... moreAMOLED screens give you deeper blacks and saturated colours(too saturated) but IPS screens are better in sunlight (outdoors)also they give you natural colours! And if you like AMOLED screens you can buy the nokia lumia 930
I have been using this phone for almost 10 days now , knowing that i used to own an iphone and a lumia 720 before now let's move to what i really think about this phone.
Camera : Camera is very good , but if you really want to take some really good pictures you need to use the manual mode which is easy to learn , i found the AUTO mode of the camera not performing well in some conditions like indoor , but when i interfere manually the pictures are much better but i believe that will be improved in the new Lumia camera coming up this quarter with dynamic flash and lots of amazing features , and also the ability to control shutter speed for up to 4 seconds is very good you will be able to make amazing effects using this feature and take perfect pics under low light conditions , Frond camera is not very good for selfies it's just good enough for video calls but you can take very good selfies with the back camera using the lumia selfie app which automatically takes a pic when it detects someone in the frame
Screen : Screen is good but not amazing , it's 720P with 294 PPI which is more then enough for me but the screen colors are not as punchy and vivid as you would find in an amoled screen .
Quality : The phone quality is just amazing , phone is thin , light and has a surrounding aluminum frame that makes the phone feels very premium and sturdy in your hands.
Battery : Batter is more then average , it will take you through the day with moderate to heavy usage. ( Definitely better then all iPhones )
Windows phone : I my self love the windows phone i love how it looks , it's something new and fresh compared to the other icon based OS like android and IOS , the software it self is very sleek ,smooth and fast.

I am just finalised to buy Lumia 830 in a day or two. Like to listen from the users view
@ankitmav87 donot worry , just do it gently you just push the sim out a bit using the needle , then use your hand , no damage at all , just use a very thin needle to be able to make a very small hole in the sim card then push movie the needle with the sim card out then continue removing the sim using your hand

Only 4.5 inch.. More over L1020 lauched almost a year back..its price are high when it was launched. Its price reduced over 10000 in a year..
If people are cautious about camera then 1020 would be appropriate. But not in terms looks and size..
ankitmav87, 20 Dec 2014how to remove sim card from 830...it seems stucked???pls help
I have also same problem.
Use factory made nano sim.
Zeyad, 21 Dec 2014@ankitmav87 , Just insert a needle and try to pull it will be very easy , don't worry i tried ... morethanx zeyad :)
But its worrying as it may damage the SIM or the PCB beneath it...as nano-Sim has full metal contact area unlike Micro-sim.Seems visiting nearby care point is a better option.
albert, 21 Dec 2014A year? geeeez. stop assuming. its not even half a year when this phone is released.Dude i said that i have had lumia 820 for almost a year not lumia 830!!! ;D

Anonymous, 21 Dec 2014L830 is not over priced. L730 or L735 doesn't have a dolby support for that price range. L730/... more1020 also has a Dolby supprt...and also a bttr frnt as well ws rear cam and better display...and yes a lower price thn 830 now...
Bought my Lumia 830 today. Already have a Galaxy 3, Galaxy S and Galaxy SIII. The L830 appears smoother than expected. Mine did not came with Qii charging plate but included a headphone in the box.Battery declined only 15% after continious 2&1/2 hr wifi use with medium brightness. Will check HD video playback soon...
