    Can't wait to upgrade L1020 to 1030 hope we'll get some leaks just after 830 announcement. 41mpix was spot on hope this time Ms will have another extraordinary present for us..
    An updated 1020 with 5" 1080p screen, 801 processor and SD slot available to all carriers would annihilate the game. Wonder what's taking so long. It's like they know the phone would be too good so they won't release it. I mean really, how many people would choose any other Windows Phone or any other phone for that matter, with those kind of specs? Even the Apple heads and Androidians would be tempted.

    Intl Lumia 830 will be 5". Look at the phone dimensions from leaks - same as L930. Maybe US variants (Verizon, T-mobile) will be smaller.
    Hope you're right! But if that's the case, how is this phone any worse than a 930? Something significant has to be worse else I don't think they'd call it an 830, but rather a 935 or something.

    Considering that rumors of the 1525 stopped as soon as Mclaren was cancelled, I'm guessing the 1525 was Mclaren. A 1525 would be great, but if it is real, will likely be called 1530.

    The McLaren was rumored to be the 1820.

    It's really aggravating that nothing is worth getting anytime soon.
    830 will be neutered without wireless charging, 1080p screen, and have horrible capacitive buttons. I can't stand accidentally hitting the search or back buttons.
    HTC One M8 won't have a decent enough camera that I want or wireless charging either.

    It's just really a sad time to be WP fan. Just pretty depressing and makes me want to go to Android. I'm one of the biggest MS supporter too having had a Surface Pro 1, then Surface 2, now a Surface Pro 3 and having to deal with my 920 while Bluetooth has been broke since Lumia Black.

    MS needs to get the management in order and quit letting carriers mess with anything. It's just ruining the experience and life of the platform.

    There's no way to know who's fault it was that the HTC One launched as a Verizon exclusive. The fact that AT&T was so quick to announce they'd be getting it after they saw the good response it got on Verizon tells me that maybe the other carriers weren't willing to jump off the ledge. Verizon appears to be the most dedicated to releasing high end WP devices. It might be your carrier who's at fault for carrying mostly low and mid range devices.

    Lack of camera button is a deal breaker.

    What makes you think the 830 won't come with Qi? Just curious if you've read anything I haven't.

    He's probably referring to AT&T's meddling and ripping Qi out of the 1520 in favor of a competing standard.

    Ah yes, I suppose that's likely. I really hope the AT&T variant doesn't offer something better than others that makes users have to choose between that variant (and no Qi) and an otherwise inferior variant with Qi. We deserve the best of all Lumia 830 worlds.

    The only good news that there are no high-end phones coming is that I don't feel the need to get rid of my still awesome 920!!!

    The 830 is literally an affordable high end device. It should be a thinner 930 with better speakers and a smaller screen. And it will cost half as much.
    The words affordable and high end don't go well together. Everyone is wanting something new. A flagship device. Not a 930 with better speakers...

    True...i was thinking the same.ms new strategy is cut features out and sell it cheap. Maybe cheap will get more people on wp platform.
