The new Nokia Lumia 830 has just been announced as a “flagship device with an entry level price point.” The device looks and feels much like many other Nokia devices we have seen in the past, but what is it that makes this device special?
It costs only 339 Euros, making it a good deal for many users who want a capable phone and don’t have much cash to spare. We do have a plastic and metal hybrid construction that makes for a well-balanced experience.

We normally wouldn’t call a phone a “flagship device” if we found a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1 GB of RAM in it. We must keep in mind Windows Phone does very well, even with lower specs. This is something we realized during our hands-on time, as the device never stuttered or gave us any problems.
We still have no idea how much the device will cost in the USA, but you can expect it to be very reasonably priced.
