Pros Price, NFC, Front Camera, Nokia Apps, Clear-black Display, Expandable Memory, 720p Video Recording, Mass Storage Device, Touch Screen Sensitivity...
Cons i can only think of 2 cons, battery could have been better (it gets you through the day though), and Data Sense (3G Data Monitoring App) doesn't come with unlocked phones, only exclusively for Verizon.
Summary If you are looking for a cheap (but doesn't feel or look cheap at all) fully loaded straight forward simple stable smart phone with a better than average support from the manufacturer, then this phone is definitely for you :)
Pros It is $250. It is fast for the price. It runs Windows phone 8.
Cons The Micro SD card is really hard to put in. The search button only goes to bing.
Summary This phone is great for the price. Don't expect to play any 3d games and don't expect it to have all of the best hardware, but it can really do almost anything you would want. It can even play games fluidly like iStunt 2 and fruit ninja. It is a lot faster than you would expect for $250. There is zero lag in the home screen. And for Windows phone there isn't too much of a app gap. The apps are going to be lower quality than ios or android and it won't have all of the latest games but there is enough apps. But the surprising thing is that windows phone has some apps that are exclusive to windows phone that are made by Microsoft and are really fun. I mean really good games that you can't get on android or ios. I am addicted to wonderment and rocket riot 3d is great. And expect to get a micro sd card, it only has 4.8gb of internal memory. I don't like the SD card because it's really hard to put the sd card in, even the person from telus couldn't do it. I absolutely love Windows phone 8 which isn't surprising because I love Windows 8 for desktop. But one thing that annoys me is that the search button only lets you go to bing. There are times where you would expect to use the search button but It only makes you go to bing. Also it is hard to close apps because you have to keep pressing the back button until you exit.
