I bought a lumia 830 recently,haven't used it much but
1.Its quite slim in design
2.It easily give 15-16 hours on the battery charge at normal to heavy use(wifi+bluetooth+gaming drained the battery at 6% in 20-30 minutes)
4.the touch is very smooth
5.connectivity is extremely good,even in low signals it captures the strength well
6.the speakers are clear even while gaming(you'd think that the speakers being at the back it would affect the soung while playing but it doesn't).
7.Coming to the front camera,it may be a .9Mp but i compared it with a 2 Mp front cam phone and it was better.
The only lag was in low lighting where pixlation was visible.
8.I played temple run 2 at no lag at all,another game (approx 500 mb,don't rem the name),it didn't lag,i installed quite many apps during the day but the phone was working smooth.
9.Heating is not an issue with the phone while charging.the only time the phone showed any sign of heating was when i had the wi-fi,bluetooth and charging all on.
Now the drawbacks:
1.The back cover might be a bit loose around the camera area,so check the phone before buying.
2.Mine had a manufacturing defect due to which i had to return it(i was generally using the bottom left or just left side of the screen and the gorilla glass began to detach from the upper right corner but it was a manufacture defect so check where u buy it from before hand).
3.the packing and the headphones that come along with the device are crappy.
4.Maybe i wasn't able to make proper settings but i low lighting the images were not that crystal clear,when i would use flash the problem of red eye was coming but then i didn't have much time using the camera and so i might not have adjusted the settings right.

Varun, 16 Oct 2014It is waste to spend more than Rs. 12000 for this phone as comparing to Nokia Lumia 730. Diffe... moredats not d only diff u specified. 830 comes with carl ziess 730 does not. even d build quality is far more supirior dan 730.730 is made of plastic. even d sound quality is different. 830 has dolby sound enchanment, 730 sound quality not so good & earphone are very bad. there r lot of such small diff between 730 and 830. but i agree 830 is slightly overpriced

Nokia C5 Lover, 12 Oct 2014and battery backup...? r u using this mbl...?yes i am using that mobile more than 1 week. Battery ok for me, because it's new always in my hand and browsing internet, games and music it long last for more than 6 hrs. But if i am busy just a little browsing but more music it takes more than 24hrs. Use class 10 micro sd it's good. I am using Sandisk class 10.
I am using Lumia 820 from last 18 months, it has 1650 mAh battery which gives me 21-24 hour backup and no heating problem.
I am using 128 GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SD Card and its working perfectly fine.
Lumia 830 have 2220 mAh battery so I hope it will provide 6-8 more hour battery backup.
Carol, 10 Oct 2014Yeah, the only problem is that, not like iiapple, nokia uses quality materials, and resistive ... moreNokia also charged top dollar like apple for their phones in the past when they were still the top dog of the mobile world.
