The Gorilla Glass 3 clad IPS display isn't as color saturated as the AMOLED Lumia models and blacks aren't inky.

It's an OK display with moderate brightness, but it doesn't wow us in terms of color or contrast.

Reviews Word on the street for the Nokia Lumia 830

The rear camera has a backside illuminated sensor (BSI) and the lens has a fairly wide 26mm equivalent focal length.



7.5 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The rear 10MP PureView camera is the gem here, and it takes photos that look natural and have good dynamic range by camera phone standards.

The fast Zeiss f/2.2 lens and LED flash help with low light settings, though we still give the edge to the iPhone 6 and higher end Lumias for low light shots.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
Still, it's a good camera with a fast Carl Zeiss f/2.2 lens that has OIS (optical image stabilization).

When plugged in and charging that time and notification display stays on at a dimmed level so you can use it as a bedside clock.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
The display is a casualty of the lower price tag, though it's by no means poor-it's simply middle of the pack to match the price.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
The display also has touch sensitivity settings, and on high it works with gloved fingers.

It has the wonderful Nokia Glance feature where you double-tap the display to wake it up to view the time and notifications.

If you use the GPS for hours or play 3D games for an hour or more, you'll need to top up by the afternoon, but for moderate use it should last until bedtime.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
The front 0.9MP camera is one of the lowest resolutions on the market in this price range, and as you might expect, Skype chats look a bit dim and grainy and selfies aren't masterpieces.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)


Not many mid to high end Lumia phones have swappable batteries, so that's a treat.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
Since the phone runs on the midrange Snapdragon 400 and has a 720p display, that battery capacity is perfectly adequate.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
The design is classy for the price, and we're thrilled that the battery is removable and that you can expand storage via microSD cards.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)


The camera saves images in JPEG format; sorry there's no RAW format here, and it can shoot video in 1080p at 30 fps (H.264, MP4 format).
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
Photos look sharp with natural colors and video is smooth thanks to OIS.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2014)
It's decently sharp and it doesn't look grainy despite the fact that there are quite a few 1080p 5" phones on the market and this is just 720p.
