    Does dual LED on 920/925 make any difference compared to lumia 830s single LED?

  • Thanks for the excellent extensive reporting on the 830. As a 925 owner looking to sidegrade this was very helpful. I’m still doubting if I should wait for the next real flagship (930 is not for me, really want Glance – 1520 is too big and I expect a successor soon).
    But it has put the 830 on my shortlist for sure.

    The 830 has MicroSD card support & removable back/battery, while the 92x phones do not.
