"Puts my iPhone 4S AND Point&Shoot camera to SHAME!"5.0 starson by MelissaBaggett
Pros: -CAMERA (Believe the hype it is amazing.)
-Loving Windows 8 OS
-Quick & Easy Music Transfer & Great Music Player + Easy to Download Free Ringtones
Cons: -Battery life matches up to what I had on my iPhone 4S.
-Bigger size, though it fits in most of my pockets, and the weight is a non-issue.
-Lack of exact apps (though there are comparable apps in most cases).
-Phone Conflicts with iTunes & Mac.
Summary: This phone replaced my point & shoot camera (that I always forgot to bring or charge anyway), and really puts my iPhone to shame. The camera is fairly easy to use if you're a beginner with presets that allow you to choose the environment for quick shots catered to that. It also has lots of great features & settings for pro's as I'm sure anyone considering this phone has read up on. I have not found one thing they haven't lived up to. The phone is larger than most, but it is BIG AND BEAUTIFUL. :) The screen is responsive and easier to read in bright light. Windows 8 is a fairly new OS but it is an early bloomer if you will. Works great, compares to the seamless performance I came to expect from Apple. Live Tiles are really neat, though keep in mind overuse can drain your battery so choose wisely. I got the white version; without a case I've had it for a few weeks and it's not been an issue keeping it clean, hasn't gotten any scratches, and I've dropped it a few times (no hard surfaces) and it seems like a really solid build & sturdy phone. I feel like it's worth mentioning that while iTunes is not compatible, and if you're using a Mac computer not running the most up-to-date version you will run into issues hooking your phone up and transferring music. Alternatively I copied my music from iTunes onto an external hard-drive, hooked both my phone and hard-drive into my husbands HP laptop and pasted the songs directly from the hard-drive to the phone. It was actually faster than using iTunes, but if you don't have another computer, this is something you should consider. The battery life is about the same as what I got on my old iPhone 4S but you're getting more bang for your battery with a bigger screen. While you are probably concerned about the one burning fault of Windows 8 is the lack of Applications available. Know that there are apps/games that are comparable (or in some cases better) available in the Windows 8 App Store. I would most certainly recommend (and have) this phone to a friend.
