    I will agree with your premise, just not the target audience. It most likely isn't shooting for those who buy older iPhones. Simply put, there is a status symbol in holding a bitten fruit product that just does not exist for any other tech. There will be only one way that any WP, Android, Firefox OS, or Amazon bearing phone cuts into that: If Apple drops the ball and gets complacent. Unless their user base feels like Apple is just milking them dry and not giving them what they want, no one is touching Apple and their brand.

    However, that users want a premium feeling product, but at an affordable price, that is the L830's consumer. This isn't about beating any Android or iPhone 4S/5S sales, it is about convincing the undecided user tthat this is the best device in it's price range. That is most likely a larger group of users then what we give credit for it being. Can MS do it?

    I think the "affordable premium" tagline and promotion is the way to go for the L830. All of us understand it is more like a "upper mid-range" phone, but I like the approach and the desire to break new ground based on lessons learned.

    You are correct in that the 830 is a better phone than the Moto G. but is it twice as good. I just bought a Moto G LTE as a backup for my 820. I paid 209$ from AMazon. One day I will upgrade my 820; but I am not sure if the 830 is the upgrade I want. If they had at least put a 600 series processor in it I would be waiting in line. Now I am not sure and will wait and see what happens and if the price comes down from the over 400$ I have seen as a suggested price. Plus I would really like a Flagship phone, I have the moeny for it set aside (been set aside for months). But the specs for this phone do not say Flagship to me. But if the price is right (not 400$ plus) I might bite. MIGHT

    Why complain about 830's processor, SD 400 is fine. If they had put 600, would you be getting that feature of Cortana? No, I they had put SD 800, nobody would buy 930, all would go for 830. MS won't risk the sales of 930 for 830. Its surely an upgrade to 820, that's what I think. Still, the choice is yours

    Absolutely. That's why am getting the 730 as my first foray into wp8.1 bang for the buck, was initially choosing between the 730 and this but can't justify the price tag especially this is my 1st time trying out the os. My bro's getting the iphone 6 64gb though, freaking off contract.

    Sad but true though. Philippines had a sale last month I think with lumia 1020, 1320 and 1520 for almost half price at $300 to 350 more or less for the 1520 and people bought them just bcoz of the sale. But for iPhones people line up and pay premium and that's a fact.

    Absolutely true people in India are buying this iPhone 6 in grey market by paying huge money above original price.iphone 6 is smash hit in India.MS strategy is right in delaying flagship release .if they released anything flagship they are going to be burning losses.
