Lumia 830 Hands-On – The Flagship Windows Phone For Everyone

Microsoft took the stage during IFA 2014 on Thursday to announce several new devices, including the Lumia 730 Dual SIM, the Lumia 735 and the Lumia 830, the last of which it’s billing as a flagship Windows Phone that’s affordable enough for everyone to buy. We had chance to check it out and we definitely walked away impressed.

The Lumia 830 reminds us a lot of the Lumia 930/Lumia Icon, though it makes some sacrifices. It features a 5-inch 1280 x 720-pixel display that actually feels really great for one-handed use, 1GB of RAM that’s enough for cruising through Windows Phone 8.1, 16GB of expandable storage, a 10-megapixel PureView camera with OIS, Qi wireless charging support and more. Nokia plans to sell the device for €330, which we think is a great price point considering everything you get with the Lumia 830.

We can’t wait to take it for a longer spin when it launches soon, and are particularly fond of the green and orange hues that will be available. Check out our hands-on video for more.
