    if the IPS rumor is true then its a 99% phone for me. its almost the perfect phone. if it includes amoled then its a 100% and there is a sure fire bet ill buy it 6 months after it comes out :P

    And 30% for me. Processor ruined everything.

    Sahib, if you haven't done so yet, and your major allows you to, I'd strongly suggest taking a social psychology/gender studies/group dynamics course. You'll see a lot of the things that Rue and I have been talking about. It is good starting points for learning.

    Morning folks. I see people are bummed out about the 830 leaks. My gut says it will have the IPS screen and the 10MP camera with the S400 processor. Even with those specs it is an upgrade from the 820 because it will be quad core. People yammer that the 820 and 920 shared the same specs...but the former was pitched at the time as the cheaper version of the latter.

    I don't care for specs on this phone because like you said it's an upgrade over the 810/820/822. Just hope it's amoled :3 ! That's all I'm hopping for

    It's a SD 400 ._. I honestly don't see the fuss about it. You have to remember that specs don't really matter in wp . They only matter in gaming. For daily tasks the SD 400 is prefect.

    One day I'll stop hearing this nonsense and I'll celebrate. Until then I'll put it this way.

    Yes, WP works well on low-end hardware but that doesn't mean it won't work better on high end hardware. Just because it 'gets the job done' on low-end doesn't mean that's the best option or should be the only option.

    Let's say it now, 'specs do matter' and I'm getting tired of hearing otherwise. WP is better and smoother on high end hardware. To suggest otherwise is not to recognise reality.

    Exactly, it makes differences in games, which I play.
    And this "WP doesn't need good specs" **** is just wrong. As said many times before, Lumia 930 worked much better, loading screens were reduced or even completely gone, there was also generally faster in every other aspect. And at the end, this proc is the same as in Lumia 635. Seriously Nokia? Same proc in 400 phone as in 150 one? Meh, Microsoft better have lot of OEMs preparing phones to pull them out of the ****.

    If that was true then my 810 wouldn't be running great . It should be running horrible but it's not and running a 3 year old SOC. It gets the job done and it does well.

    They could of put a SD 800 in this phone but that would eat into the 930 sales . I know you know msft knows it. To put a SD 800 in this phone means death to the high end in wp.

    The processor is the same ( maybe higher clock speed ) but we don't know how much ram it will have or internals for that matter . I think the SD 400 fits nicely with this phone.

    There is no high end WP out. So that argument is meaningless.

    I didn't say WP ran crap on low end hardware. You didn't read what I wrote, no surprise as usual.

    I said, to suggest that WP doesn't run better on high end hardware is not reality. What I'm saying is that bringing out better hardware should be the goal but since they decided to put out a 9 month old phone as the 'flagship' it's made a mess out of all the other secondary phones. It was a dumb mistake on their part. We should be seeing higher specs because that's where the market is. Regardless of how you feel about it or your perception. And, regardless of how good/bad WP8 or WP8.1 runs now, we can't say the same about WP9 or further along. WP is better, smoother and more appealing on high end hardware.

    It's only 1,2 GHz. Sure it does fit nicely if you want to compete with. HTC ONE MINI 2 or S5 mini but try to compete with Xperia Z3 compact. We will see what Z3 mini brings, it should be reveled in an hour or so.

    I've been using IPS for two years I don't have an issue either way.
    I'm stuck on TFT.

    (I'm so going to get that OLED-screened Vita.)

    I agree that MSFT/NOK have made a mess of specs for their lineup. They are in the same boat as Moto were about 18 months ago until they figured out the Moto X, Moto G and Moto E lineup. I think MSFT needs to do something similar and perhaps pare down the 5xx and 6xx into one phone, 7xx and 8xx into another and then the top end along with niche devices like the 1020 and the phablets.

    I agree completely. I think I mentioned similar on here some time ago about the need to shrink the lineup down.

    I also believe, like I stated previously they need a proper naming system. The numbers have to go. It's too confusing and it's not very appealing for the consumer. Best thing for them to do is to come out with some names for devices, like Icon or whatever. A name is more memorable.

    Most colleges have any or all of those courses. Just an intro level one would suffice for you.

    Daniel Rubino says that the Lumia 830 will NOT be having a SnapDragon 400 processor.
    That means , it will have, I think, SnapDragon 800!

    I had some great and intelligent comment to make, but I decided not too.

    I like what I see in the Note 4. I'm curious to see if the Z3 Compact will deliver on the rumors. I'm waiting to see what Moto X+1 looks like. I say that because I'm not yet feeling the 730 and 830. I know they aren't for me, but I'm more interested if MSFT can announce wearable tech this go 'round.

    As much as Rue (and I agree to some extent) laments on this, the 1520 and 930 are the current high end models. I'd love to see MSFT jump to the 805 processor, but I doubt it because GDR2 isn't out yet to support it.
