"Preferred over my wife's Galaxy S2 and iPhone 4."4.5 starson by solvaccio
Pros: WP 8 is such a smooth interface and plugs-in to all my other device interfaces (Work PC, HTPC...). Love it. Much nicer than crash-heavy Android, IMHO. Like it even better than iOS. Hardware is plenty powerful. Phone feels solid in the hand.
Cons: No LTE, front facing camera, slippery back cover. But really, for the price, glad they choose to invest that money elsewhere.
Summary: Surprised by CNET's low rating. Excellent phone. Prefer it over my wife's Galaxy S2 and iphone 4. That kind of says it all.
