    Currently using a lumia 720, wish to upgrade because its starting to show its age.
    unable to decide between lumia 735, lumia 830, htc desire 820

    lumia 735 because well its a nokia and that price tag
    lumia 830 because of the pureview tech
    desire 820 because well, in india at rs26K, it has the best all round specs and is also future proof

    i do know the pros and cons of windows phone and android and apps are not that big of a deal,
    i have been using ms services for a long time which are available in both platforms

    one more thing is that i really donno what to expect from windows 10 on mobile

    please provide an unbiased opinion

    thank you

    thank you
    LOL... opinions are going to be biased by their very nature...

    Here comes mine: Stick with Windows Phone if you really like the UX.

    735 if you value price
    I like IPS screens which gives 830 an edge, YMMV
    830 gives more internal storage, but with either taking a 128GB card it is a really a draw
    830 has a significantly better rear camera - BUT if you really use Video chat or are a selfie addict the 5MP Front Camera on 735 should sway you
    Both have the Snapdragon 400 chipset which makes either just as ready for Windows 10 (or not depending on where the hardware line falls)

    Personally I believe in getting the best hardware you can find and afford, but that's me.

    Prioritizing the list above should help find the standout device for you.

    Get whichever device provides you with the options that are most important to you

    UX is not a concern, I prefer my data very dense in the first glance, say blinkfeed. my start screen has so many live tiles, sometimes it takes more than 5 seconds for the blank tile to fill.
    notification center, messaging hub(hangouts), options for customization are pushing me towards android
    camera apps, deep integration with Microsoft network and im also learning to develop windows apps, all these factors towards windows

    and if you look at the price tag, desire 820 is cheaper than lumia 830 and offers better specs(I know windows doesn't need that much power to run, but 13mp back, 5mp front, 5.5 ips 720 p for a lower price is very enticing)

    I'd go with the Lumia 830. It's a very beautiful device, runs the latest version of Windows Phone, and has a very good rear camera :P I'm trying to learn to develop Windows apps too. I just don't know where to start .-.

    What do you actually want? A good ffc? Then go for 730, if you don't desire more of a selfie focused camera, then go for 830. Both devices are good.

    I'd honestly would go 830. The 735 while nice I feel the 830 is a better phone.
