The Nokia Lumia 830 is a reasonably priced phone with a 5-inch display, metal-edged body, a 10-megapixel PureView camera and the latest Windows Phone 8.1 software.

It's due to go on sale later this year across Europe for around €300, which converts to £240, $400 or AU$425. Nokia hasn't yet released final prices or stated exactly where the phone will be going on sale.
