    Hello All,

    I'm trying to help my mother choose between the 830 and 1020.

    She's with AT&T and they have the 1020 for $340 and even though they do not sell the 830 just yet, all signals point to the 830 being $300 at minimum.

    She is not a heavy user, mostly uses it to makes calls, texts and photos.

    She currently uses the 925 and is very happy with it but my step father's phone is messing up and she wants to give it to him while she gets herself the new phone

    I know the 830 takes better pictures than the 925 and has a bigger screen than both the 925 and 1020 plus a quad core snapdragon 400.

    Obvioisly the 1020 has the best camera than any mobile phone, but the processor is outdated, I read its slow when it comes to taking photos and I also worry if it'll even run Windows 10 next year.

    She has 3 grandsons, so catching a moment is pretty important.

    What do you recommend?

    Sounds like a no-brainer to me, get the Lumia 830 when released.

    Pricing should come in about the same as your (quoted) price for the Lumia 1020.
    I believe you're looking at another week for AT&T release.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I didn't realize it was releasing so soon. I'll wait until it's released and compare the two.

    Latest rumors point to Nov 7 as the release date.
