Review: Nokia Lumia 830 for AT&T
The Nokia Lumia 830 is an all-around solid performer. It may be a mid-range handset, but it acts more like a flagship smartphone. It boasts Nokia's classic design and solid build quality in a phone that's compact and a pleasure to use.
The Lumia 830 handles the basics with ease. The screen looks great, signal performance is solid, call quality is excellent, and battery life is right where it needs to be. The Windows Phone operating system performs perfectly on the 830 and never felt bogged down or slow. The features available in Windows Phone 8.1 mean the 830 can go toe-to-toe with most other phones in the market. The 10-megapixel camera does an admirable job and the 830's photo-management tools are powerful and easy to use.
I can think of only one real weakness, and it is shared by all Windows Phones: App selection. There's no question that Android and iOS have more available apps, though some may argue Windows Phone has the major gaps filled.

AT&T is selling the Lumia 830 for $450 with no contract, $100 with a contract, or about $20 per month on an AT&T Next plan. The Lumia 830 is a bargain no matter which you choose. I'd say it's the best mid-sized Windows Phone currently available from AT&T.
