          ab dob maro..

    • Taha Najam

      Agreed. This was launched by Microsoft as an affordable flagship and it is neither affordable nor a flagship. But damn if it’s not a beautiful device. And that camera will put any Galaxy or iPhone to shame.

      I’ll probably wait for the prices to drop a bit and then get one if only for nostalgias sake. It’s the last phone with the Nokia branding on the back.

      • panjgoori

        yes it is the last one. and agree with your design and Camera point. its indeed too beautiful to ignore. but i haven’t used a WP before so don’t know about it much but many users praised WP 8.1.

        • Adeel

          Windows phone 8.1 is awesome OS, I have Lumia and HTC but I love my windows phone, beautiful interface, smart Cortana assistant, office with reading and editing option and many more

        “And that camera will put any Galaxy or iPhone to shame.”

        LOL sure.

        • Masood Akhtar

          Aamir Bhai which phone is latest Nokia Lumia 925 or 830?

          • Taha Najam

            830. The 3 in 830 signifies third generation, with 800 being the first and 820 second.

        • Taha Najam

          Wait are you seriously expressing doubts over the quality of Lumia cameras?

          • Ammar

            As an ex-owner of a Lumia 1020, Lumia 920 and a current owner of an iPhone 6, I think I know what I’m talking about.

            • Taha Najam

              And what is it exactly that you are saying? You seem to be hiding in the sidelines just making sarcastic jabs. Why don’t you come right out and say what your impression is regarding the cameras on the three phones?

              • Ammar

                I found the iPhone to be better as an overall camera. Lumia phones would take an occasional shot that would blow away the iPhone but 9.5/10 times the iPhone did a better job. You also had to tinker a lot with the camera settings on the Lumia to get a decent shot.

  • yousuf_aman

    Moto g 100 times better than this

    • omer

      830 camera is the focus point here. with shutter speed upto 4 sec.
      but again price is no justice… it should be around 35k. its last Lumia with nokia brand name…

      • J.V

        Even if the camera is the focus, you can almost get an entry-level DSLR camera for 45,000

    • Taha Najam

      Haha that’s funny. Does the Moto G have wireless charging, 4G, micro SD, 10MP Pureview camera with OIS, led flash and Carl Zeiss lens, Nokia Clearblack IPS panel, replaceable shell covers, Glance screen, tap to wake, SensorCore, a lag free OS, Nokia design and build quality and most importantly, WARRANTY since you can’t get it officially in Pakistan? 100 times better LMAO. The Moto G is not even in the same league as this phone.

      • Ammar

        “The Moto G is not even in the same league as this phone.”

        Except for the fact that it has the exact same specs barring the camera. You’re telling me the camera on the L830 is worth 20k extra?

        • Adeel

          Android lag’s too much, you can not compare windows OS and IOS with the android because IOS and Windows OS never lag’s
          Lumia is far far far better than Moto G android phone

        • Taha Najam

          Though I agree this is not worth 20k extra, I listed about 15 things why there’s still no comparison between this and the Moto. Do you have trouble reading?
