Nokia Lumia 830 is a pretty good Windows Phone 8.1 Lumia Denim UI phone released many years ago, equipped with a Quad-Core processing unit clocking at 1.2 GHz, a comfortable 5" multi-touch screen, and two cameras, a 10 megapixels back-facing camera and a 0.9 megapixels front facing camera.

The Lumia 830 feels much lighter than what one would expect from a phone this size. The Nokia Lumia 830 only has 5.49" long, but it is able to fit a a 5 inches screen. The Nokia Lumia 830 has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.33". The Lumia 830 is sold in multiple colors: black, orange, green and white.

Nokia packed the Nokia Lumia 830 with a nice 5 inches display, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, giving this cellphone a very nice graphic quality. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

Nokia decided to build this cellphone using a good performance 1.2 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 system chip with 1 GB RAM. To collaborate with graphic calculations, it also has a 450 megahertz Adreno 305 GPU. A nice feature of the Nokia Lumia 830 is its big 16 GB internal storage and an external memory slot, which allows you to store a couple hundred applications without any trouble.

This cellphone counts with WiFi connection (which it can provide to other devices acting as a modem), 4G (LTE) high performance connection type and also HSPA+ connection type, that is a bit slower 4G variation or 3G fast data connection, over HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The Lumia 830 works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

The Nokia Lumia 830 features two cameras, a 10 megapixels back facing camera and a 0.9 mega-pixels front side camera. Even though it's 10 MP may seem great the back facing camera sensor size is quite small which makes pictures be less detailed and darker than you would expect. It also films videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also has a couple of useful features like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, geo tagging and optical image stabilization.

The Lumia 830 uses a 2200 mAh great replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an impressive battery life. Nokia reports a stand by time of 528 hours and a talk time of 12.9 hs for this device.

This device also features many interesting features like Bluetooth, FM Radio, GPS and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone is extremely cheap considering it's an incredible cellphone and it costs just $ 175. This cellphone is definitely the correct choice no matter whether you need a phone to play tons of games, love photography, want a phone for work or will use it as a social phone.
