Pros good price range and specs
Cons not available easily at saudi arabia or other countries or not yet launched
Pros The Nokia and Windows apps work well together. Some refining needed, its good updates appear almost daily for the stock apps.
The phone feels sturdy and has a beautiful screen.
Windows 8, brings out a new feel. After breaking the ice, its a blast.
Cons Sometimes poor quality to whomever you're talking to . You really have to have your mouth on the microphone for the other end to understand you.
Battery last forever idle, but needs charged frequently when browsing or bright screen setting are used.
Summary An awesome phone with an OS that thinks out of the box. I was given 14 days to try this phone, upon which I could trade for something else, and I'll be keeping it indeed.
The Windows is just too addictive, navigating the phone, and exploring the apps. Honestly, I was hesitant with Nokia and their apps it came with, but they have fixed there reputation. Navigation and mapping software are key, this phone has thorough and integrated apps.
When finding what the phone can do, I've been coming across points where it feels like a feature or option is missing. This gives me the upset feeling that it was put on the market before it was ready. There have been many updates released.
Its not a worn a weathered strong OS like Android, and its not a happy go lucky iOS. Windows 8 was meant for a phone and it's a new feel in a phone. I had to break the ice and get myself to take it home, and now it is very comfortable.
Pros Live tiles
Nokia Applications (Nokia Drive, Nokia Transit, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music)
Cons Plastic cover is slippery
Low Lighting pictures are poor from a distance, need to be close to flash
Xbox Music and video needs work
Pros Solid weight, rubbery plastic feel, fantastic screen (the colors really pop, regardless of what everyone else says, it looks great). Perfect size for a smartphone. Fits easily into the pocket.
I could go on and on about what I like.
Cons The speakers sound really screechy when volume is turned all the way up. There are no accessories that match the gray color (wireless plate). Verizon employees still have no idea what this phone does (sigh). Xbox music is a nightmare (software).
Summary I am extremely satisfied with this phone. It weighs enough to feel solid in my hand, it isn't too thick, even with a case. The screen looks and responds wonderfully. The phone is lightning fast, and the call quality is adequate (unlike the CNET reviewer says, I believe there is only so good call quality can be, and it's relative to the network area).
The speakers get a little screechy at higher volumes, but the Dolby technology while using it in the car is superb! Unfortunately, Microsoft shot itself in the foot with Xbox music. It is quite a pain to sync music to the phone, and I ended up cancelling my subscription to Xbox music because of the bad experience.
The OS has improved, and this phone exploits all of these improvements. The camera is awesome, and the lenses give it all the bells and whistles it could need.
Nokia's products are quite impressive, and given that this is my first one of their products, I will definitely continue purchasing them if they are this good!
