Nokia Lumia 830 available in the states from Expansys USA
The Windows Phone 8.1 powered Nokia Lumia 830 is expected to be available from AT&T, starting on November 7th. But for those statesiders that can't wait until then, an unlocked version of the handset is available right now from Expansys USA. The price for the phone is $449.99, and the device is available in black, orange, green and white.

The Nokia Lumia 830 is equipped with a 5 inch screen offering a resolution of 720 x 1280. That combination provides a pixel density of  294ppi. Driving the phone is a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU with an Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board along with 16GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available and a 10MP rear-facing camera has an aperture of f/2.2, which should allow the camera to snap decent shots in low-light conditions. And with OIS, your trembling hands don't make watching your videos a painful experience. A .9MP camera is found on the front of the phone, which is powered by a 2200mAh battery. Windows Phone 8.1 is pre-installed, which means that personal assistant Cortana comes with the model.

Eventually, the Nokia Lumia 830 will be available from AT&T for a subsidized price. But that could be more than a month away. If you don't mind paying the retail price for the phone, you can purchase it right now from Expansys USA.

It's a shame that the Lumia 830 have a much more inferior chipset than the Lumia 930, considering the predecessor Lumia 820 have the same chipset and RAM with Lumia 920. Also 1.2ghz quad core A7 is hardly an upgrade over 1.5ghz dual core Krait.

It's no big deal.. Quit getting caught to far up in the numbers.. The way it performs is what matters... And, it's a upper midrange device.. It wouldn't make sense for it to have the same processor as the 930... You can't compare the way components cost two years ago to the way they cost today... The name of the game for OEM's is to keep cost low, so they can sell devices cheaper...

The Lumia 8xx series is meant to deliver a flagship-grade performance at the lower cost, and now it has been stripped down to only camera. It wouldn't take a massive price increase to upgrade to S800 and one more gig of RAM. M$ has changed the tradition of the Lumia 8xx series.

It has been stripped down to only the back camera. I didn't even know this 830 got only a 0.9mp front cam. "It wouldn't take a massive price increase to upgrade to S800 and one more gig of RAM" I totally agree, especially because phones like the LG G2 has been sold at only $400 in the US (for like half a year already) while offering S800 and 2gb of ram, also higher resolution cameras.

$50 metal chassis and Pureview tech.

That can justify the $50 then. But for an example, the LG Optimus L90 costs $100 here in the US. Same processor. Same amount of ram. Add $50 to that for metal chassis and Pureview tech, and it's still 1/3 the price of the L830. But well, that L90 can be too much of a deal, so let's pick something more expensive. The Samsung Galaxy Avant costs like $200 now, same processor, little more ram (1.5gb). Add $50 to that, still much cheaper. Add some $ for 720p screen, still much cheaper. I'm just trying to pointing out how low the specs of the L830 is relatively to its price. It's neither "afforable" or "flagship". I would say it's simply overpriced. If it were to have snapdragon 800 and 2gb of ram like the LG G2 (and maybe all the NFC, LTE, 1080p display?), $450 will be good, and probably then the term "afforable flagship" will be more acceptable.

I think Microsoft and Nokia went down the wrong path by calling this the affordable flagship. There is nothing flagship about the lumia 830.

Why don't they put the new 410/610 in this? Other than that it's great.

Now, this is a nice phone for the price.. Running WP8.1.1.. This needs to be on all four major us carriers for $99. I love the Desing of the 830...

Hello Rodneyej1. I'm new to WP, been an Android user for a long time. and I have a question. I do my internet browsing using the IE11, so whenever I search Google images, the page doesn't display all the results (shows some blanks with unknown file type icon) and when I click an image, it appears blurry. Do you have a solution regarding the issue? Thanks in advance.

Those blurry images are like a preview. There is a 'view full size' option. Also , the unknown file type icons are images that were unable to load :)

Thanks, the 'view full size' helped. Regarding the images being unable to load, isn't there a solution? I never had that problem with my Android devices, and I like WP and I'm planning to use it for a some time.

Do you have a fast internet connection? If yes then reload the page :) that should do it.

12. Hashed unregistered

Reloading the page didn't do the trick. But thanks anyway for your help.
