    Arguable though we should be talking about 830 vs 820 and 930 vs 920, not 9 vs 8. And the 820 did have significant compromises - screen resolution, camera, battery, design was a bit lame etc, and these are the areas they've improved on with the 830.
    The 820 had compromises to the 920, but they weren't major ones. The screen honestly looks fine. The battery wasn't even a compromise, because the lower resolution and AMOLED display makes it so that my sister's 822 has better battery life than my 920 and its larger battery--so, again, I wouldn't call the battery a compromise. The camera was something of a compromise, but still did its job. The 820's design was fine, though the 822 looks pretty ugly, but even then, that's a personal preference assessment, not really a compromise you can guarantee as fact.

    What I'm saying is that the 820's "compromises" weren't significant. By 2012 standards, everything but the display resolution was pretty solid, even next to a Galaxy S III. The problem arises when you have a similar device launched in 2014, because the compromises become more noticeable.
