"A phone for those frustrated with the "Big 2""5.0 starson by JTSavella
Pros: The new Windows Phone operating system is intuitive and pleasant to use. The apps that were most dear to me on my Android device are already available. Everything runs smoothly on the Nokia's dual-core processor.
Cons: Not as many "niche" apps available yet for Windows. Many of the existing apps are second rate.
Summary: A great phone for those who are frustrated with Android's chaos and Apple's narcissism and greed.
The new Windows Phone is attractive and highly functional without the "clutter" and confusion of Android. The Nokia 822's components rival or exceed the Iphone 5's, at about 1/4 the contract price. In the end, the Nokia-Microsoft alliance has produced exactly what people like me have been waiting for: a smart, highly functional smartphone, that is a pleasure to use. The bargain price is icing.
