Pros of Nokia Lumia 830:
- Nokia Lumia 830 runs on the latest Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 Operating System that comes with many advantages.
- Lumia 830 packs in a great attractive 5.0 inch IPS LCD high capacitive touchscreen display with multiple touch capability, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and a Clear Black display that is really remarkable.
- It offers fast and smooth performance with its good hardware specs comprising of a Quad-core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz of speed, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset. The smartphone comes with 16 GB internal storage and microSD card support for memory expansion of up to 128 GB.

- It offers premium looks with a highly stylish and sleek body, not to mention Nokia’s patent sturdy built quality. The handset is also available in the attractive color options such as orange, green, black and white.
Cons of Nokia Lumia 830:
- Though its screen looks great, the phone offers only average screen resolution and pixel density.
While the smartphone’s primary camera is really great and efficient, the handset comes with real puny 0.9 MP front facing camera which would not convince or impress the modern age selfie lovers.
- The smartphone also comes with a rather inefficient 2200 mAh battery pack which is really not enough to support the large 5.0 inch display of the handset. Thus, do not expect the battery to offer great backup, though daily average usage should be handled effortlessly.
- The phone offers pretty good hardware specs, but its average 1GB RAM is really not impressive as most mid-ranged phones come with 2 GB RAM.
- Though the latest Windows 8.1 Operating System is great, the Windows OS based smartphones do have their own limitations and still has some way to go in order to be able to achieve the great capabilities of the quality Android phones.
Build and Design
