Premium and slimmest Lumia design with 10 MP PureView camera!! The ISP LCD display is simply gorgeous, has great sunlight legibility and is very bright with excellent viewing angles. You would like to check the display in our outdoor display test video.
We have done some crazy tests too and those show how unbend-able (robust) it is and how scratch-proof the Gorilla Glass protection is. Performance wise that Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor keeps things snappy.
The 10 MP PureView camera is the USP of Lumia 830. It captures awesome low-light without flash images. OIS works very well in both daylight and low-light capturing conditions. The stills come with lots of resolved details and color look natural yet vibrant. It can certainly not compete with 20 MP cameras of Lumia 930 / Lumia 1520 but looks like an upgrade over Lumia 920 and Lumia 925’s cameras.
In a nutshell, it leaves you impressed!! If you are not too much into Snapdragon 800 and 1080p display then Lumia 830 is the premium device you may get for a mid-ranger’s price. Iconic design, very good camera, awesome display with great outdoor readability, snappy performance, unique features like Glance screen, Motion Data, Double tap to wake up, super-sensitive touch screen are some of the elements of the package called Lumia 830.
This is our preview of the device and as always, we will review it after using it as our daily driver.
