Imaging Shoot-out — Nokia Lumia 830 vs Nokia Lumia 920

Lumia 920 image 28

So I was able to get my hands on this beauty called ‘Lumia 830‘ in Orange color today and was really impressed by its looks and design. The first impressions being a Lumia 920 owner were “it’s tall, beautiful and slim .. the processing is fast and display is fantastic”.

Microsoft refers to Lumia 830 as its budget flagship as for the first time it brings features like PureView Imaging with OIS, In-built Wireless Charging, ability to record videos in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and a Premium design to the mid-range segment. More imaging improvements like Moment Capture, Rich Capture (Auto HDR & Dynamic Flash), Improved shooting speeds and next generation of image processing algorithms are expected with the upcoming ‘Lumia Camera‘ update.
