    730 is the perfect upgrade to a 520
    I know I know! ๐Ÿ˜ But my parents keep on insisting to get the iPhone 4s instead the fact that it's on the price range of Lumia 730/735. iPhone 4s is a 3 year old phone (that's the budget though haha) and it may become obselete next year, and it became slower after iOS 8. But I don't know. I'm confused. I love the ecosystem of iOS but I love Nokia more than Apple. My problem with WP is Apps. Will I get more Apps on a 1GB RAM WP than a 512MB RAM WP? My Lumia 520 also changed after a year. I don't want to experience it again cause the phone that I'm gonna buy is the one that I'll use for 2 years or more. Hope you guys could help me too. I'm gonna buy tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

    Get a Lumia 735 - not a 730. The 735 has wireless charging and 4G.

    I have a 735 and it's absolutely amazing :)

    Thanks for the info TheMightyCraken, but I already saw that video countless amounts of times, im trying to figure out whats better in terms of performance and multi-tasking, Ive searched the forums seeing that people had some lagg issues. So right now im thinking which one is the better of the two. The 735 or the Blu Win HD, and im also trying to figure out why the 735 is considerably more expensive then the BLU WIN HD
    Don't go for the Win HD. There are some video playback bugs (not relating to the Snapdragon 200 as the 530 and BLU Win JR plays the videos fine) that may or may not get fixed in a firmware update.

    As far as Windows Phone I am considering the Nokia Lumia 735! Thats the one on top. But I cannot understand why the nokia so pricey. You can get a equivalent for around the same price, with better camera, ram, ghz, larger screen for the same range. I am even looking into a Huawei Ascend P6, with 2gb of ram ,1.5ghz quad core, expandable storage, and etc. Although it is not a windows phone, it is the best deal at this point. The software Windows Phone 8.1 is the only thing keeping me on the Lumia 735.

    Don't go by paper specs. A friend of mine had the P6 and its battery is terrible while the processor and gpu just doesn't live up to what they offer and after some months it started lagging terribly. Check gsm arena benchmark review as well Huawei Ascend P6 review: Zen droid slim - page 5 - GSMArena.com
    Its also reached the end of its support cycle and won't be seeing lollipop so its definitely not a good choice over the 730

    Hmmm you are right, There is a huge gap into paper specs, and real life operation. I am really trying to find the best phone within the $200-$250 range to be honest. As far as the pricing for the lumia 735 it is quite expensive unlocked. Around $325, thats over my budget

    I have my eyes on the Galaxy S4mini as well. A good price, and usability is great. My Classmate has an S4 mini, has has never had any issues.

    I honestly think its a great deal at that price. If u compare it to any of the similarly priced androids from reputed manufacturers like Grand prime, Xperia M2, Desire 510 all are inferior in specs to 730.
    The only one that can match is the Moto G2.

    Im sorry for not mentioning that before, I am in the United States via USD. Maybe the comparison will be more clear to you from my point now C:

    Ah well most of the guys from US always keeps talking abt contracts and I don't see many using unlocked phones :)
    Btw how is the 925 priced there unlocked?

  12. GroundSpartan's Avatar
    haha I'm different I don't like contracts, and constant phone payments, One time payments are the best for me. I just looking for pricing around. unlocked phone is around $250-290. I am really considering the Samsung S4 mini, or the Huawei Ascend P6 for now, so that I can use it until summer 2015, Im really trying to balance out the two for now. When I get more of a budget later this year, I will invest in a new model windows phone built for windows 10! C: I can't wait to see what new models come out for windows phone 10

    S4 mini is a good phone. But I just can't stand Samsung design and build quality from 2013. Its also done with updates and will be stuck in kitkat but if ur the kind of guy who flashes phones then CM mod shld give u a great improvement on it.
    I think ur right, at the moment if 730 is too expensive for u its not worth getting a cheaper lumia and u should wait till WP10.

    It looks like Lollipop is the fastest OS, I wonder if I can find a good one with Android Lollipop around my price range. I thought I heard somewhere that the Samsung S4 mini is getting the Lollipop update. Ill keep researching haha

    Then why not get the Moto G2? Or even the first gen Moto X will be cheap and offers great performance.

    The Moto G seems great! But the specs of the S4 and the Huawei are really luring me, I will keep watching more reviews and research, and If I can get access to view the phones in person! It's to hard to choose ><, I really like performance for a good price!

    830 is a really fast phone with a good display and design,plus the 10MP Pureview camera beats the 730/735 by miles. Go for the 830. Plus the 830 has a camera button and integrated wireless charging.

    Well as he stated he is on a budget.
    Besides I think MS killed 830 with the price, I mean u can get last year flagships like Z1,G2 and even Moto X 2nd gen for a little more.
    And if u want a wp with good camera then even the 1020 is cheaper and offers much better camera and despite old processor is still more powerful than 830.

    You are right about the prices. I honestly think the lumia 735 is a great choice for me, but for the hardware specs it has, you can get much better for the same price

    Have you checked eBay? There are many 830s for about $250.

    I have a 521 right now and I am thinking of getting the 1020, but I read about many issues in the 1020 forums (dust underneath screen, etc.) and I am reconsidering.
    Can the 1020 users here reply whether they have had some issues like this, or was a just a select few?

    6.7 MP rear camera (which is actually better then you think)
    I concur. The main camera is superb, and does pretty darn well in low light without a flash, too.

    The 735 is 4G and single SIM whereas the 730 is 3G only and Dual SIM.

    The 735 is the best smartphone I've ever own. Not that I've had that many, but it trounces every Samung Galaxy I've owned, and compared with the Moto G 4G which has identical processor, gpu, RAM, storage space, and screen resolution, well, the 735 has superior cameras, stability, screen, speed, and also has NFC.

    I'm hoping to buy a 2nd 735 - just waiting for the price to stabilise here in the UK - as it is one amazing phone for the price point.

    Its a great phone but its too pricey for the Specs it has compared to other phones.
