Nokia Lumia 830 Review

The Nokia Lumia 830 is the latest flagship phone of Microsoft and although it bears the iconic logo of Nokia, it will be the last of this brand to hit the market as Microsoft will no longer use it in the coming years. This doesn’t mean that there is nothing worth noting about this mid-range priced smartphone. As a matter of fact, this is one of those smartphone units by Microsoft that is going upward in terms of sales.

The Basics

Microsoft has given a lot of thought on the design of this smartphone as it incorporates metal frame (latest trend in many smartphones), 5 inch screen, rear covers that are interchangeable, rear camera that is OIS enabled and a 2.5D screen glass. The selling point of the Nokia Lumia 830 is the PureView sensor with its ZEISS lens, optical image stabilisation, and 10MP resolution.

Aside from these, the Nokia Lumia 830 also boasts of LTE connectivity, 128GB microSD memory card, and support for wireless charging.

Hardware

Just like it was mentioned before, the Lumia 830 sports an aluminium frame, which is quite solid like the Gorilla Glass screen. The swappable back cover gives its users an added fun in customising their smartphone. The cambered back plate lets a glow appear on the underside of your phone, which isn’t poorly done.

The Nokia Lumia 830 also has a physical button for adjusting volume and turning the device on and off. What’s more, at 150g, the Lumia 830 still remains solid in your hands in spite of its being lightweight.

Software

In terms of software, the Lumia 830 is equipped with Windows Phone 8.1 including Denim firmware. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 is not as speedy as you want it to be for such a smartphone, which is one of the downsides to this Lumia series. However, Microsoft Office and Microsoft OneDrive more than makes up for this making the Nokia Lumia 830 a decent handset for business use. Also, OneDrive offers 15GB worth of free storage, which is a big bonus for its users.

One thing that may bother users is the lack of apps found in the Windows store. This is due to the lack of app builders who are making one for Windows OS. This may affect your usage depending on how reliant you are on smartphone applications.

Summary

The Nokia Lumia 830 may be the last of its series, but Microsoft didn’t disappoint with its beautiful packaging and reliable software. Heavy app users may find the lack of variety of apps a bit disappointing as well as the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 but overall, this budget-friendly smartphone is still worth considering.
