Loving the look of these phones. Can't wait for them to get here. Would love to be able to replace the Ativ S with one when they come out. I prefer the look and size of the 730 series phones, but I would take the 830 in a heartbeat as well.

NZ carriers don't like dual SIM or non LTE so I hope you like the 735 over the 730

Liking the look of these new phones, but one question - if the 735 comes here, can you use a 3G sim in it, as my area isn't 4G capable yet.

735 is 3G and 4G not just LTE

All good by me. Wireless charging and 4g sounds a lot better than a second sim I won't ever use.

Microsoft should have added a decent front facing camera on 830 as well for selfies. Wife reckons 1MP is not enough.




Do whatever you want to do man.

You could use the Lumia Selfie app and the 10mp rear camera instead ;)

I think I would have liked a little more from the 830 overall. Internally it seems to share a lot with its lesser siblings. Going to come down to price for it I think. If someone brings the 735 here, I think I will grab one for sure.

I'm curious to know re the pricing, do you buy them here in NZ as you put it on the plan from your Telco rather than buying up front, or prefer to buy in NZ with Consumer Guarantees Act or?

830 would be my next phone if I was looking.

1020 is still great but the sluggish camera is getting me down - will see what lumia denim does.

I buy in NZ for both reasons personally. Just prefer to be able to talk to the person I am buying from if I so desire.

Any idea on NZ pricing? Clove has the 830 for 250 pounds, 300 including VAT and the 735 for 183.33 pounds, 220 including VAT

There is no NZ pricing available sorry as there has been no NZ announcement on availability

If you buy in the UK, don't get ripped off make sure you get the VAT back since its an export
