Should you upgrade from a Lumia 920 to the Lumia 830?
Current Lumia 920 owners from the WPCentral forums are wondering if their next phone should be the Lumia 830. What do you think? For example, Fade_z is looking for a good follow-up to the 920 and thinks the Lumia 830 is the perfect match so far.
There are several responses already in the discussion. Forum member, Tips_y, thinks that it's kind of strange to come from a model that starts with Lumia 9xx and "upgrade" to a lower number, but the Lumia 830 gets a newer processor, bigger screen, better camera, and a microSD slot.
Others are skeptical. Forums member, steve_w_7, is concerned that the Lumia 830 won't get the 'Hey Cortana' functionality when it rolls out with the Lumia Denim update. This limitation makes him wonder what other upgrades he might not be able to take advantage of in the future.
What do you think? Is the Lumia 830 a worthy "upgrade" from the Lumia 920?

That all depends on the status of the phones warranty. The 920 came with either a one or two year warranty depending on the country/region it was sold in. So, if someone bought a 920 in the UK last year it will still be covered under warranty.
As it stands I am holding on to my L920 until I have a chance for a proper UPGRADE as the original 1520 would have been if released as Nokia had designed. I know the on phone memory is not the big problem to many, but it was to me as I believe you can not expect SD card memory to perform exactly as onboard in some instances.
I already upgraded mine for a new Lumia 1520 but still using 920 daily basis.
I'll keep my 920 until a 1525 comes out :)
Surely better autonomy
With old hardware, we wont be getting much features, for example I didn't get anything from cyan update besides *data transfer arrows, the Lumia cyan tag in extra and better optimization for the os*..
Best to upgrade I say..
I will make this upgrade and hopefully in the second half of the next year upgrade to a Lumia 1030, or Lumia 1040... :)
But want to say this for sure I prefer to have a 1520 than a tiny phone as iclones or 4.5 devices.
I still have my 920 and the only thing I miss is wireless charging, that was disable by att. Sometimes I hate At&t.
The only good thing about the 830 is a micro SD slot. And, to me, that's not enough to justify getting it instead of the 930.
Att the best option is the 1520 I got on January and I had the 920. The only thing I miss is the wireless charging cause Att disable that option on all lumias after 920
I'm willing to upgrade from 920 to 830.
The spec from what I see is an upgrade for sure.
We'll see bout the price in Indonesia...
SD card? That's sounds so 2008 why should I need it,when I have 1TB on OneDrive..
People, please go forward....
Nice cameras though.
I'm so tired of this anti-SD card nonsense! crApple can at least say they offer multiple storage option, what is NOKIA's excuse? That SD-Cards are "Uncool"?
