Contents pretty standard. Only difference for a flagship Lumia being the removable battery.Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1467

Battery, SIM, MicroSD accessible from the back. No special tools needed.Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1469

Screen is very nice. Rich, punchy colours. I wish I had the 930 with me to compare. The screen’s automatic default is quite bright (or I think my 1520’s default automatic is not bright as my housemate’s 1520 screen is brighter in identical lighting).

Nothing at the bottom, other than the visible latch for the battery cover.Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1480

Right side has the usual Lumia buttons – camera, lock, volume.

Top has the 3.5mm jack and MicroUSB slotNokia Lumia 830IMG_1482

Back has the 10MP pureview with OIS, with LED flashNokia Lumia 830IMG_1483

Lumia Denim on board. I don’t think it has the latest Lumia Camera Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1488 Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1492

The bump is well hidden. There’s an extra protective lip that adds height to this bump although the camera bit is recessed.Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1500

Bump is hardly noticeable from the side.Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1501 Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1502 Nokia Lumia 830IMG_1503

We shall get to answering questions on Lumia Denim/830 ASAP. 🙂

  • First impressions? Very light. Nice cool touch with the metal sides.
  • It is super comfortable to use with one hand. Swyping with wordflow is just the right proportion (I wish I could resize it on the 1520)
  • Everything seems very snappy so far.
  • Rich recording is present and sounds lovely.
  • Rich capture stuff not there as it doesn’t have the updated Lumia camera.

Touch slimmer without the cover.
