    Hi, I've been using Lumia 820 for over a year and I am glad I chose this model. It has almost every feature and is still getting all the updates. In fact, I think it might have been the best model in Lumia line up considering performance/price.

    Microsoft/Nokia announced the new flagship and budget phones Lumia 930 and 630. So Lumia 830 might be the next phone to be announced. Seeing the Lumia 930 and 630, the newest models, having no glance screen worries me. Is it the direction Microsoft/Nokia going now? It is absolutely a must for me, I am using this feature since Nokia N9 and it is so useful that I cannot go back.

    What features do you want in 830? Mine are:

    - 4.7" or 5" screen (not bigger please)
    - Glance screen (this has to be present!)
    - Better battery life than 820 (this is the single bad feature of 820)
    - No need for quad 2.2 GHz (they need to sacrifice something so that it is cheaper than 930)
    - SD card support
    - ClearBlack screen
    - Camera quality relationship with 930 just like Lumia 820 had with 920. What I mean is, a very good quality camera but no need for a quality like 930's. My friends still use my 820 for taking photographs since it is the best among other similarly priced (or sometimes even higher priced) phones. So a top quality camera but no need for 20 or 41MP PureView.
    - 720p front camera
    - Above 250 ppi display density (820's density is 217 ppi. No need for 450 ppi like 930's)
    - Gyro, compass sensors

    I want to keep using 820 for a few more months since it is still a very solid phone and I like giving phones at least 2 years of lifetime. But I can buy 830 if it comes in a few months with the features I want.

    I would also love to see a Amoled screen with HD resolution on a screen about 5 inches.

    Exactly, HD screen with 300 or more ppi, a lot lighter and thiner than 820, let's say 120g, 8 - 8,5mm. I would buy it right away

    The next phone is going to be most probably 530 since there are a lot of rumors out there, then 730, and then 830...i guess.

    to be honest, if there is a 830, i'm ok with a mediocre battery and top processor + ram.

    Quad 2.2 GHz
    2GB RAM
    5 inch AMOLED CURVED (PLEASE!) screen
    8MP Camera (Camera can remain the same level, i don't really care.)
    GPU (i don't play mobile games, so that too can remain on the same level.)
    8gb Internal storage memory with SD slot
    Back covers, with Cyan option.

    Ok if we are talking about everything se let it be. What I want.

    Snapdragon 800 ( will be great processor for midrange phones since before this phone come flagships will be using Snapdragon 805)
    2 GB RAM
    16 GB memory + microSD
    12 MP camera
    2300 ( or something like that ) mAh battery
    5" AMOLED screen
    build material : Aluminium

    btw. GPU is connected to CPU so with Snapdragon 800 there will be Adreno 330 GPU.

    I'm a very happy Lumia 820 user, and I'm thinking of giving my wife a new phone (as the memory is full on her budget Android phone). Is there any other Lumia model which is comparable features/pricewise to the 820, or should I just buy her an 820 as well?

    I do not think the 820 successor, if nokia decides to make it, will get a snapdragon 800 processor. Why? Well, the flagship windows phones (1520 and 930) have it and it would hurt the flagships if the mid-tier phone has the same internals. And WP does not need that much processing power anyway. I think the 830 will come with a snapdragon 610 processor.

    Why are you guys wishing for 5 inch screen on the 820 successor??

    The most defining feature of this line is the small size of the device! It's the reason I got the 820 and not the 920 (too big).

    4.3" is a sweet spot that still needs to be covered with the 830. If you want a 5" phone, just get the 930.

    The reason I chose the 820 over a 920 was weight.
    I hope the 830 if it ever arrives has
    4.5"- 4.7" AMOLED HD screen

    Everything else could stay the same just a bump on the GPU to be able to play the latest games

    I have the feeling that if ever comes a L830, the internal hardware will identical to the L1320. The L930/Icon shares the same internal specs with the L1520.

    I think 4.5" screen fits better for the L820 succesor, 4.7" is just too close the size of the Icon/L930.

    It sounds like cramming a 925 into the chassis of an 82x. Keep the body size (except make it lighter/thinner) cram the innards of the 925 (upgrade the CPU though to keep it current), keep the microSD, make wireless charging happen with a different cover, removable battery (albeit bigger), but add OIS to the camera, but keep the same module, maybe make it 13 MP no oversampling.

    Will prefer an improvement on the front camera. And also battery capacity. Others are still good at the moment.

    The point of the 8xx series is the smaller version of the 9xx series without much sacrifices.
    Look at the 800, it is a smaller version of the 900.
    Look at the 820, it is a smaller 920, albeit with more 'sensible' features: microSD slot, shells, removable battery, AMOLED screen, slightly worse camera. However, for the specs, theres no difference..

    Therefore, from the 930 we can expect the 830 to have:
    Same Snapdragon 800 chip + 2 GB RAM
    8 or 16 GB internal storage with microSD slot
    Lower resolution AMOLED screen (4.3" 720p would be cool, hopefully not PenTile)
    Smaller battery (lets hope its not true)
    Shells + removable battery
    ~$100 cheaper pricetag

    While I really want a new 8xx Wp 8.1 phone I am struggling to find a reason as to why I even need one. My 822 is so smooth for me with 8.1 and the camera (both front and back) are fine for my needs. Once 8.1 is official I plan on getting a 128gb sdcard and I should be fine for a while.

    Been a very happy 820 owner for almost a year, but I would love to see them come out with a 830. Go to a quad core processor, 1.5 or 2 GB of memory, 16GB of internal storage, screen could go to 4.5 or 4.7, keep the SD card slot of course, increase the display density some, help the camera a little and the one thing it needs most a bigger battery. I would be ready to buy one tomorrow except at the rate Microsoft is comming out with phones I may be dead and buried before that happens.

    So true!!!

    I only have two real reasons for upgrading
    Better resolution screen
    4.5-4.7 720p is more than enough

    Bit more grunt for games
    Lumia 820 plays everything smoothly 95% of the time.

    Well this is interesting. For some time I felt that Nokia were going crazy by having too many different models but it has kinda worked out. I kind of see an opportunity to make it clear what models are for what.

    So this is what I think each should mean:
    High End / Flagship
    1500=Phablet
    1000=Camera focused
    900=Mid sized
    800=Compact
    Value
    1300=Phablet
    700=Camera Focused
    600=Mid sized
    500=Compact

    So for the 830 I would say it must have flagship Specs in a compact form factor also it should inherit removable battery and cover along with SD card slot. I believe we will considering the 630 and the 1520 has.

    So Specs

    Processors: Snapdragon 800 chipset
    RAM: 2GB
    Memory: 16GB Internal with microSD, up to 128GB
    Display: under 5 inch screen with more than 350 PPI and Gorilla Glass
    Wireless:Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, NFC
    Camera: at least 8MP zeiss lens maybe BSI
    -Video 1080p@30fps with HDR microphones
    -Front at least 720p@30fps
    Battery: at least 2200 mAh removable battery
    Sensors: accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass
    Colours: at least five colours of back cover

    Loudspeaker Voice 73dB / Noise 66dB / Ring 74dB
    Audio quality Noise -89.3dB / Crosstalk -89.4dB
