A while back Microsoft announced two new special variants as a “mid cycle refresher” for the Lumia 830 and 930, both devices came with a new golden trim, with an optional glossy white or black back plate. Since we at GeekOnGadgets like our phones sexy slim and classy, we grabbed a gold and white variant of the Lumia 830 to unbox (and use of course, we don’t throw away the phones after unboxing).
Check out our unboxing video below, then read on for some of our first thoughts on this sexy phone:
Having never used the Lumia 830, I must say I really like it; I’ve happily welcomed back Glance screen into my life (I’m sorry I ever left it), and the thin 8.5 mm profile just adds to the class of this phone. The glossy white back is certainly pretty, however I suspect it will be a scratch magnet, and will invest in a carry case immediately to keep it crisp. The mix of white and gold give off a ice contrast which is definitely an eye turner, and I expect people to ask me what phone that is quite soon, until then; enjoy a couple more pictures of this beauty below.
