Everyone wants to imagine Nokia to Android. Dreams become reality with the tablet Nokia N1, but the hero of this Lumia 830 review, has absolutely nothing to do with. It’s all the same device on Windows Phone. And as manufacturers are not tried to argue that in the Market for WP enough software? Obviously, this is not the case, but the device itself attracts attention. Without remorse can say that the eyes 830-I do please.
Design and ergonomics – Lumia 830 review
In Lumia 830 review collected the best of all designs from Nokia in recent years – robust aluminum base, brand polycarbonate and slightly bulging camera. In the frame – 4 plastic notches for the operation of wireless communication. Basic controls are also located on the frame, namely: connectors for charging and headset – on top, volume buttons, power and camera – on the right (the last bit of walking in the right place at the expense of on-off, for the same reason it is periodically pressed by accident).
At first glance, it seems that the front and rear panels are glued to the aluminum base. And it’s alarming, but, if you look, you realize that everything is made of conscience – no claims to build there. Front – facing camera, earpiece, 3 touch-sensitive keys and control, by a strange coincidence, the microphone.
A bit old school these days will not prevent decided Finns. The back cover is made of polycarbonate frosted brand from Nokia and closed at a sufficient number of latches that this is not satisfactory. The lid covers the microphone for noise reduction, flash, main camera and speaker. If it is removed, on the other side you can see the NFC-chip and wireless charging, and on a smartphone – a slot for SIM- and MicroSD-card. The device is available in four colors: orange, green, white and black.
Display – Lumia 830 review
Lumia 830 review has 5-inch display is made by technology, IPS. Unfortunately, his markedly compared with FullHD OLED-screen flagship. Gorilla Glass nowhere Delhi. Display resolution – 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density – 294ppi. But in spite of simplification, I like the way it looks at this display. The system because of its specific architecture design reduced the number of pixels in the eye is not evident. The display supports unlocking double-clicking and work gloves. It’s nice that the glare it is not very visible, and color settings can be changed manually. There is a slight inversion of colors at a deviation during use will not be noticeable. Technology like Nokia Glance aka Moto style. C it means smart phone displays notifications on the screen at minimum brightness – to see them, do not need to unlock your phone. On the IPS-LCD is still comfortable, but not as effectively as in the OLED.
Camera – Lumia 830 review
Camera – one of the strengths of the Lumia 830 review. The smartphone is set to 10-megapixel digital camera module with optical image stabilization system and optics from ZEISS. Looking at the characteristics (size of the matrix is 1 / 3.4″, f 2.2), one can easily notice that the Lumia 830 review model loses his fellow line, but despite this, the optics shows excellent results. The point here is, most likely, in the improved algorithm shooting. The assurances of the company, the device uses the thinnest optical stabilization. Despite the lower resolution output, attention to detail and the colors produced are much better than the same 930 model.
Nokia Lumia 830 review Appendix “Lumia Camera” leaves a very good impression: it implements all the necessary functionality. The only thing – I did not find the regime HDR-shooting. But the front camera gave up the slack – here only 0.9 MP, and do not pleasing to the eye.
Specifications and Software – Lumia 830 review
The device runs on the operating system Windows Phone 8.1, for the calculation corresponds to a quad chipset company Qualcomm – Snapdragon 400, clocked at 1.2GHz, the graphics chip is responsible Andreno 305. The manufacturer provides only 1 GB of RAM and 16 – built from which 14.5 GB available to the user. But the new chip, if not the most powerful, supports MicroSD memory card up to 128 GB. Characteristics, though not outstanding, but no problems in work, I have not met – the animation is smooth, the entire feature set is fulfilled on “hurray”. Yes, and third-party applications that I was able to find, worked perfectly. Device battery – 2200mAh, which allows the smartphone to live for about a day in the active mode and up to one and a half – gently. To better – about 10 hours of viewing HD-video.
It is worth noting a good sound through the spoken and the main speaker. However, in the latter overwhelmed with the high frequencies. And if you listen through headphones, generally no questions arise. Cool, that the smartphone supports connection systems 5.1, as the new product uses a technology called Dolby Surround 5.1. However, Windows Phone still does not support Lossless-formats, so that judges are unlikely to get the desired sound using a smartphone is paired with a cool sound system.
Output – Lumia 830 review
At the time of the shooting cine cost of the device is $ 420. As of today, the cost is $ 400; however, such a price tag puts it in a competitive position with a much steeper Android-smartphone. But the Lumia 830 review makes it all so it’s build quality, materials and cameras. For lovers of mobile photography, this unit can be an excellent choice. In Android smartphones, you simply will not find a camera, even far beyond this price category.
