    Am I the only one who likes Windows Phones and think they are
    underappreciated? 

  • Cam Bunton 2 years ago

    One of my favorite Windows Phone devices so far… What do you think?

    Nokia Lumia 830 review

  • IinaTheMagnet 2 years ago

    Thanks Cam, this was a really nice and simple review. I have been
    struggling for which to buy, the 830 or 930. I’m leaning towards the 830
    because it’s still 130€ cheaper in here and I’d like to have a slim phone.
    Plus, from what you reviewed, I feel like the screen and processor isn’t as
    big of a compromise what people try to make it seem.

    got my 830 couple weeks back the display is really good don’t know what
    your talking about colours do pop and it does have a decent amount of
    brightness iv also found video to be pretty spot on tbh

  • Dragos Lucian 2 years ago

    3:26 OM*G !!! I could say that’s fake right there, but I know Nokia
    probably makes the best phone cameras ever, so I guess that’s totally real.
    Amazing.

  • zeebazu 2 years ago

    In the video he says its AMOLED? Isn’t the 830 fitted with IPS LCD?

  • Ayush Pandey 2 years ago

    Replaced my old N925 with this. Speed is similar. But where it shines is
    Camera and battery. 925 display is great though.

    The Nokia Lumia 521 is the best phone ever made. There’s no comparison. 

  • Yanano Bere 2 years ago

    +KidRandomTV The first number denotes the model. The last two digits tell
    you which generation of windows phone it is. Eg 520 = 500 series (low end
    range) and 20 means (Windows Phone 8 device). All the Lumias that launched
    with Windows Phone 8 end with 20. 520,620,720,1520 etc. The new windows 8.1
    devices all end in 30 coz they ship with the next generation of the OS. 500
    & 600 is low end, 700 & 800 are mid to high, 900 is premium. 1000 Super
    Camera Phone, 1300 low end phablet, 1500 high end phablet. 920 gets
    replaced by 930, 820 by 830 and so on. It’s quite straight forward if
    you’re used to it.

    Another great review cam. Great to see another English mobile reviewer I
    like pocketnow reviews but always find you focus on camera a little better
    as maybe you have better knowledge in that area which I appreciate much as
    camera is a big selling point on phones these days. Someone here said Nokia
    should make android phones wish they did but MS will never do that. MS
    should just use Google services e.g playstore then we would all be happy :)

  • Madhur Gupta 2 years ago

    @Travis McCormick I feel same! Windows phones are far better than buggy
    android and too expensive iphones

  • Simple Hendrix 2 years ago

    I have an iPhone 5 and cos i don’t use a lot of apps anymore and I hate
    android I;m thinking about getting this… Do you think ill miss certain
    things like airplay and I’m guessing theres no WP google maps?

    As far as apps go that I do use its basically FB, Twitter, ebay and
    paypal… how do they compare in features?

  • Alexis Aguiñaga 2 years ago

    “Pixel density of just under 300 per inch” come on! it’s 296 ppi, just
    4pixel under 300, can’t you say that? it’s a little tendentious, don’t you
    think?
    Haha, despite this this video is so good, I hate reviews of half an hour,
    and this is quick and complete;)
    I’m gonna but this phone
    Can you compare the 730 vs this in app speed? 

  • Michael Carver 2 years ago

    What’s up with the awkward pauses? 

  • Daniel Vigil 2 years ago

    You have the most humble voice I’ve ever heard on Youtube… Thank you for
    that… Of course, sweet reviews too by the way!

  • TheSpartanluck 2 years ago

    Same Same Same old old old routine routine routine stuff. I like this phone
    and I’ve watched some 25-40 reviews from various channels and my god every
    reviewer says the same old boring story. Come on, who wants to know where
    volume rocker is? Where headphone jack is? Where USB port is? We are smart
    and can simply view a pic of the phone and get an idea. We want you to show
    something that isn’t readily available. 720p screen, 300ppi, Snapdragon
    400, battery stats, we don’t need them, we can see these details on lumia
    830 specifications on web. What I want to know is..How is the picture
    clarity? By that I mean the photos transferred over USB to the device. How
    vibrant are the videos?? How does IE11 open flash heavy websites? How
    smooth does online videos play? What is the sound clarity? How does the
    device sound especially with the Dolby Sound? What are the various cool
    features Windows Phone offers? What are the stand out settings? Like the
    quite hours, MS Office. Why don’t people review these things? not in depth
    but at least a hint? Stop repeatedly repeating the same thing over and
    over again, say something new buddy.

    By the way, I liked your review, it’s crisp and cool, best of the lot out
    there.

  • Jonas Gamao 2 years ago

    I really hope that the app quantity problem will be solved with soon.

  • Charthers 2 years ago

    Looks great.. I don’t know if I should get this or the 930 as there’s only
    a small price difference between them..

  • uNkLeRaRa4 2 years ago

    If windows phone supported third party launches I’d buy one in a
    heartbeat!!

  • superpugee 2 years ago

    is this phone have ms office? if yes, will it run with ms excel MACRO?

  • Michael Palmer 2 years ago

    have just acquired the new 830 myself, and I love it both the wife and I
    needed to upgrade, she has the 630 and is more than happy with it, it does
    everything a 70 year old needs, I went for the 830 after watching as much
    as I could on you tube about all mobiles, and like you say, its a mid range
    phone that works like a top of the range phone. my only problem I have is
    with cortana, I cannot seem to get it to work properly for me. but I will
    get it in the end, i feel sure. Thank you Father Christmas, its nice to get
    an early present. Mike palmer

    can i sync contacts with google account in this phone? 

  • lan paul 2 years ago

    is there snapchat in this phone ?

  • Joseph Richardson 2 years ago

    Going to get this phone because it uses IPS. I hate AMOLED, fake looking
    colours and not to mention screen burn over time. IPS = None of that.

    Which is better to buy Lumia 830 or Lumia 735 ????????????

    is it just me that thought he was going to start crying at the beginning?

  • sankalpa acharya 2 years ago

    should I buy this phone?any suggestions?

  • Raul Espinoza 2 years ago

    Mid range phone done Correct! Good things about windows phone is that it
    can have an outdated chip set and still run fast and smooth 

  • MrWarlock616 2 years ago

    @TravisMcCormick No you’re not. I’m pretty happy my 820 and my friends just
    envy its design. The OS is smooth and easy to use, apps aren’t too many in
    numbers but most of them are good. I wish there were more shooter games
    though. And I also wish the Skype app improved. It kinda sucks right now

  • MrAckers75 2 years ago

    Amoled nope try IPS lcd

  • schizowallflower 2 years ago

    What about the Lumia Icon or the other one (I forget the numbers) that have
    6 inch screens and flagship specs? I think those are better than this,
    personally.

  • Rythmboy 2 years ago

    Are you kidding? the screen is clearly brighter than an iPhone.

  • Mr. Pink 2 years ago

    Hey Cam. My Lumia 925 for T-Mobile just got updated to 8.1 early this
    morning. 

  • Cam Bunton 2 years ago

    Sorry everyone, it’s an LCD display. Not AMOLED. Apologies. 

  • Joseph Lukowski 2 years ago

    I bought one yesterday. The 920 I had was acting up — rebooting and
    shutting down — so I took the chance. If more people were aware of how
    all your devices speak to one another with Windows, and how smart Cortana
    is, the Windows choice would be obvious.

  • FRlTZR0Y 2 years ago

    i like the phone designs but hate the windows os

  • jaberjbaar 2 years ago

    Your sound is different! Is it a cold? 

  • Aaqib Bora 2 years ago

    I love this device but i love the clear black panel on the 930. Ive seen a
    display setting where i can toggle screen saturation etc. Will it give more
    deeper blacks? Please try it out and let me know. Thanks . great vid 

  • Hamza Masood 2 years ago

    All reviewers say the same thing so im pretty board right now or always
    have been listening to your annoying voice
