    The Lumia 830 is clearly a "bridge" device. It's got the high-end looks and capable camera of flagship-level phones, along with the performance and display resolution of mid-range and budget models. Whether Microsoft Mobile made the right trade-offs really depends on what you want out of your smartphone. And if you have decided to become a proud owner of this device, perhaps you’re in the market for a solid and beautiful protection case as well. :9cases/2014/10/best...

        Bad thing : lumia cameras are painfully slow.Good part : awesome rear camera and OTA update for the above mentioned.Weird part: it's smaller siblings 730&735 sport 5 MP front camera and this one only has 1 MP what was the logic?
