I'm on my second 830, first one broke due to an accident... Otherwise, was a no issue phone... Upgraded it to Windows 10 about 6 months while in Japan before the update was released in the US.
I will say this much... My first one was a factory unlocked that was manufactured in Vietnam... That phone was phenomenal-never an issue. That's the one that I was referring to above...
However, my second phone was an AT&T model made in China, that I unlocked thru the carrier and had to "back-door" the system to install Windows 10. The 'Made in China' POS is the one is experiencing many of the issues that many of you are mentioning... So some of the issues that are being mentioned may be a result of where it was manufactured, and being slightly different internally...
I failed to upgrade to windows 10 with and without the preview for developpers. The upgrade advisor app keep saying "The windows 10 upgrade isnÂ’t available for your phone at the moment.WeÂ’re trying to determine if your phone can support windows 10" any other clue?
after me update my lumia 830 , my lumia camera cannot use.... went open camera the screen only blank
The phone deletes my recent call history on its own. Very frustrating
I should add this Lumia is A better phone than Moto G 2014. It's not just a better camera, it has better build quality, a better design with a metallic frame, it has a smaller footprint, wireless charging, a better calibrated display with much better picture quality, NFC and LTE (which is missing in you beloved G 2014). The fact that you just overlook these facts and then say they're equal or comparable just because they got the same SoC and RAM. I agree the initial price (400USD) was nuts, but right now I think the Lumia 830 is well worth the 300USD it's selling for.
I used a 830 for approx one month. Absolute joy to use. The front camera takes better pictures than my s4 and my friends iPhone 6. The Moto g, original or current isn't in the same ballpark with exception of app availability. This the only area where wp is deficient. A lot of devices pass through my hands on a weekly basis: my daily driver is a GS5, lumia phones have really impressed me lately.

Screen blinking in windows 10 in lumia 830 occurs if your phone in battery saver. Turn off battery saver solves it. Mine too screen blinks a second some times in battery saver. So turning off it solve mine. Windows mobile 10 in lumia 830 is great. The quality of graphics display is clear. Satisfied with lumia 830 better camera than my S Note 3.

Very nice and stable phone up to win 8.1 Even now after the anniversary update in win 10 the main and very annoying problem is the flickering of the screen .Known issue for 830 . Grate camera though.
i buy one and i prefered then the lumia 930 i still love it but after 1 year and 5 mounth my phone the butom home and back and serch are not function because the screen are scratched but i still use it like a digital camera it's perfect photo
Great phone, the best I've owned.
Buttons are prone to accidental operation, without a case the speaker volume is constantly changing. Since the biggest complaint I have about this phone is the pathetic vibrator, it can mean I don't hear or feel the phone ring in my shirt pocket !
Aftermarket cases are extremely limited, and very poor quality. Of course its not Nokia's fault that nobody makes cases for anything but Apples or Galaxy's.. The best solution is a silicon back/side cover that protects the phone a bit, but more importantly stops the buttons from being pressed. I wish I could disable the volume buttons and camera buttons via the OS..
Add a disable option for the volume and camera buttons to the OS, and soup the vibrator up by about 1000%, and it would be perfect for my purposes.
its too bad im buy this 1 yr back prblm
prblm......camara 'something went wrong ' vibration

Hai friends.... I recently bought At&t, USA model Nokia Lumia 830 from ebay.in. It is constantly on 4G where the signal is very poor in my locality. There is no option to change into 2G or 3G. There by, it is consuming lot of battery. Is there any solution to change the network mode? I live in India. Thanks im advance!!!
