In the wide world of cell phones there are lots of options.  One way to break them down in a broad sense is by operating system.  The main ones are: iOS , Android, Windows, and other.  Today we are looking at a phone from the realm of Windows, the new windows 8.1 Nokia Lumia 830.  This phone packs a big punch in a small, colorful package.

The Lumia 830 runs the new Windows 8.1 operating system, which lets it run a ton of apps from the Windows app store.  This phone was built for the 4G LTE network and sports some killer features like a 5 inch display, a 10 MP camera, 16 GB of storage, and built in wireless charging.  All this in a small package- it is a light 150 grams, and is less then the size of most smart phones, 70.7mm by 139.4mm.  The processor is fast,  Quad core 1200 Mhz Span dragon 400.  This rocks with most apps in the Microsoft store and zips through them.  Some do give it some trouble, and unfourtunatly they are the ones I use most, like Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare/Swarm.  It also is not compatible with many apps I want to download, as they are not made for Windows- this is a problem I have sometimes with Andriod phones (all apps are for iPhones, not always for Andriod) but it’s pretty prevalent with Windows.


Thus is the biggest problem with the Nokia Lumia 830 for me is that the Microsoft App store doesn’t hold a candle to other app platforms.  This leads, often times, to settling for what is available.  If you don’t use a lot of apps, this won’t bother you, but it is something to consider.

The phone itself is great fun with its bright colors and nice display and sports a good camera as well.  If new to the Windows phone market this phone is a great way to get your feet wet with.

The Nokia Lumia 830 is available now from fine retailers nationwide.  The phone retails for $419.99.


Photos takes with the Nokia phone, no filters



  1. I’ve a Lumia 535 and the windows store is dreadful. No chrome or Firefox browsers. Absolutely no Blogger or Google adsense or other apps.
    Even the ones that are there aren’t as good as the Android versions.

    If its office apps you use Powerpoint, Word etc then this is the phone for you.

  2. oh i love the colors.
    I want the green one

    Wireless charging, wow! I’ve never had a Windows phone, but those features are impressive.
