Microsoft's Lumia 830 is the thinnest Lumia yet, here's how it sizes up against the competition
Microsoft today officially announced two brand new Windows Phone 8.1 handsets: the Lumia 730 and Lumia 830. The latter is the most impressive among the two: although it doesn’t have the 5 MP front-facing snapper of the selfie-centric 730, the Lumia 830 features a promising 10 MP PureView rear camera, being the cheapest PureView-branded smartphone yet.

The 830 is also the thinnest Lumia ever, measuring 139.4 x 70.7 x 8.5 mm, and weighing 150 grams - so we thought it would be a good idea to see how it stacks up against some of the handsets that represent its competition. Mind you, the Lumia 830 isn’t meant to be a high-end device, as its Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 5-inch 720p display clearly make it a mid-range offering. So we sized it up against relatively similar smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, LG G3 s, Motorola Moto G LTE, HTC One mini 2, HTC Desire 610, and iPhone 5c. Except for the iPhone 5c, all other handsets are powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, just like the Lumia 830.
