The new Lumia 830 by Microsoft Mobile might still be branded Nokia but for most the Nokia of old is no longer at least when it comes to smartphones. This is the new ‘affordable flagship’ as Microsoft are calling it with a store price of €409 over on the Irish Microsoft Store. I would question the use of the word ‘affordable’ considering that the onboard specs are still below that of the older Lumia 1020 flagship.
However, one thing that the Lumia 830 feels is premium and while it may not be the true flagship of the Lumia range, a title held by the Lumia 930 it does perform very well. Thanks to the new Windows Phone 8.1 Denim software the days of slow shot to shot times are for the most part gone.
The Lumia 830 features a 10MP Pureview sensor with a 5″ Clear Black Display and 1GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 400 processor and 16GB of storage, stay tuned for our full review soon.
