    I would make the effort to get the 830. It's the best phone I've ever owned by a long shot.

    Alright thanks so much guys, it's been so helpful. But this is the last hurdle before I shoot. It's between the 730 vs the 930.

    I saw in my store that the 730 costs $160, while the 930 costs $530. Both prices are really cheap compared to other countries.

    So what's the most future proof phone?
    Future-proof is usually a fairly subjective term, but Hey Cortana is one notable feature that may not ever come to the 730, and will be available on the 930 as soon as it receives Denim.

    So after reading Paul Thurott's recommendation of the best Windows Phone you can get, which he says is the 930, I'm getting more confused.

    The 730 vs. 830 vs. 930.

    Again, money does not matter at all. I am primarily looking for a good camera (mostly the rear), a smooth experience and a commendable battery life.
    The camera on the 830, while obviously not as good as the 930, is still excellent. It shouldn't disappoint you.

    As you said, I may buy the 730, use it for a few months, and buy a flagship phone when I move to the U.S.
    This. Battery on 730 will last longer than 930. 730 is a lot cheaper but still much better than the 520. Use it a few months and then buy a flagship that is not over a year old.

    Also, if you're coming to the USA (think I read that), the carriers are messed up here. Say you buy an expensive GSM 930 and then find you love in an area that only gets Verizon (CDMA). Wasted money. Even the 930 will not run 4G here. Get a 730 to carry you over until then..

    Yes, you read that right, I'm moving to the US. And you sir, just made up my mind, thanks so much. After 20 hours of research and discussion, I finally have an answer. Will be buying the 730 straight up tomorrow. Now I can come back to reality and do my work again. You have my gratitude.

    If you're coming to the States, I'd recommend the 830. I've had it for a whole week today and absolutely love it! Camera is nice, design is slightly nicer than the 730 (personal preference) and with the unlocked version I bought for 370 USD on Amazon, I get LTE with AT&T. Depends on which carrier you're planning on getting, but definitely a phone I'd recommend.

    Microsoft Lumia 535 is best.
    If you like touch issues, then it is.

    Wow that's quite a nice price, cheapest I've seen. Sadly shipping phones is a no for me as the customs will tax 40% of the price. Might be able to use them for the future though, thanks.

    Should I get a 830 or wait for something to be released?

    if you can afford 930 or 1520 due the Denim Camera updates and better W10 support

    Rule number one: Always get the one with better processor and memory if you can afford

    I'm almost in same boat, I dint wanted to get a new device until W10 but my L720 is dying and needs a replacement, thinking between 730 & 930(just coz its future proof) but waiting until Jan21 to see what MS announces.
