Spending another month in the 10th place spot the 830 is a respectable smartphone.
The bright colours of Nokia phones make these handsets standout. But it is not just the colours that make these handsets appealing.
Windows Phone is not everyone’s choice but a lot has changed since many considered it, vast improvements from the notification shade to the availability of apps.
A Carl Zeiss lens on the camera and the Pureview camera technology along with the vast array of manual control make this a winner for many who like capturing photos on the go. There are few that can argue that the camera on a Nokia phone can be beaten.
16GB of internal storage a microSD memory card slot and user removable battery are make the Lumia 830 what it is.
The 830 is also one of the first handsets to come pre-installed with Cortana, Microsofts voice assistant. It is early days but it is set to be a powerful option learning from what Siri and Google voice do so well.
