    Microsoft correctly labels the Nokia Lumia 830 as an "affordable flagship," with an appealing mix of performance, features, and price. And the phone will improve somewhat once Microsoft pushes the Lumia Camera app to the phone.

    MSRP: $99 with two-year AT&T contract

    Pros

    • Thin, relatively light, but with a solid feel
    • Phone's photo-taking abilities will improve with Lumia Camera app
    • Solid performance for the price

    Cons

    • Camera currently struggles in low light
    • "Hey Cortana!" active listening won't be supported
    • Still lags behind iOS, Android in quality apps
