#1. The Nokia Lumia 830 10-megapixel Camera Phone

Description :

Nokia´s 2014 IFA Berlin contender does not seem to want to contest any premium model. Rather, it aims to bring Nokia´s PureView feature to a mid-level device.

As for memory, its 1GB RAM is right on par with its Android friends, but the 16GB internal storage sounds quite hefty - you can also top it up with a microSD card for up to 128GB of extra storage. XBox, OneDrive and Microsoft-based apps also squeeze themselves under its 5-inch display, while a 2200mAh battery powers it from under the lid.
