It's the lowest-priced Lumia phone to pack in a PureView camera. This black phone is the model we had in for testing, rather than the overly bright green.

The Lumia 830 will ship with the latest Windows update, called Denim, offering some new features such as making folders on the home screen, as well as bringing Cortana in beta for the UK and public alpha for Australia.

At 8.5mm thick, the 830 feels solid without being overly heavy. The metal edge gives it a very nice premium look.

The screen is 720p, but the IPS panel means it's still bright and very easy to read, even outdoors.

Green, orange, black and white -- Microsoft want to ensure you can make a 'statement', if you feel so inclined.

All up, the Lumia 830 is a great example of the Nokia legacy and a good indicator of what's next for Microsoft and the Lumia range.
