    Not to take away from Sahib and the 830 review, but it looks like my Hong Kong site are selling both versions of the Z3 Compact...which means they have the regular LTE model and the one that supports AWS on T-Mobile (black and white only so far, which is OK by me as I plan to get a black one if I go for a Z3 Compact). Here's the problem...I like the Z2 now. Really like it. If I had to pick, I'd still pick the Z3 Compact.

    I'll wait until Halloween and decide then. If the Z3 Compact price drops low enough, I'll get that. Otherwise, I'll go bog and get a Z2.

    I can actually buy the 830 now, but like you I will be waiting for a price drop as the 830 is very close to the price of the 930 already.

    Anyways here is my first thoughts and impressions :
    The Build quality of this phone is amazing . Feels solid in the hand . It feels like the icon , cold side but good back cover . It's more slimer and lighter than the 930 and almost lighter then the 810. The corners dig into your palms but not as bad as the 928. The policarbonate feels nice and it gives it a no slip grip . The power button is flush to the body. The volume rocker and the camera button have a nice tactile feel as they should . The capacitive keys are bright. The screen is dark and has a nice contrast but it's not as dark as my 810. It looks like I'll miss that from my 810. The colors are punchy and have true colors . The speed of this phone is faster than my 810 . The menus open fast and load faster too . So that's my first impressions

    Yup, Docomo is the fastest, but Vodafone is also good.

    I'm not saying this will work, and may even just waste a lot of time doing nothing more that resetting the phone to a factory install of "Debian Red", but have you looked at maybe running the recovery tool?...

    Yeah, the prices were close through the site too initially...$460 for the 830 and $500 for the 930, and $475 for the 1520. Now the prices have settled along these lines:

    Lumia 830: $437
    Lumia1520: $462
    930: $492

    By comparison:

    Z2: $507
    Z3 Compact: $523
    Z3:$650

    Remember, these things include shipping costs. The 1520 is impressive now because it sits right between the newer models price wise. The Z2 and Z3 Compact are close in price range. They're almost a wash, really...both offer 2 day battery life. The difference is the Z2 has a bigger screen and better speakers, while the Z3 Compact has the improved camera and design. Much to think about on my end before the cash leaves the pocket. Either choice is a good phone for me.

    The local price of the Z3 Compact is $463. Tempting.
