"A nice midrange phone needs a better OS and/or apps."3.5 starson by Kax-HN
Pros: Speed, camera, internal space, screen size, sound and equalizer, resolution, sensitivity, size, 2 cameras, phones and usb connectors, keyboard, quality feel.
Cons: OS limits, ringtones, lacks of apps, no FM radio, no pattern lock, no SD card encription like BB, battery life, icons placing far below Android flexibility, force to get MSN mail sucks, phones no hands free button, speech recog not very friendly.
Summary: Is a nice phone, which biggest downside as an Android user is it's OS as you feel going from Win XP or 7 to 8.
OS has some cool features too, gotta get used to it and wait for updates.
Should have a better battery to support all those connective and multimedia capabilities but is not bad either.
Hope MS launches more apps as a real FM radio here in Latin America still a must, a lock pattern and some more as Android.
I HATE cannot use music as ringtone directly, gotta make ringtones or have to copy songs to tones folder wasting space.
Nice navigation, maps, location, photo tools, office, skydrive and sound is very good.
Is ready for email and social networks management, but hate to be forced to a MSN ring account by OS.
I have it as a tool for the job i wish could change to Android but i didn't bought it on my own, i prefer Android phones.
But finally as a midrange phone (device) could say it's a 7.5.
