"The most solid phone I've ever had, especially with WP7"5.0 starson by caczech
Pros: -Extremely tough, comfortable build
-Extremely fast (faster than my last phone - Samsung Focus, and that one was already snappy)
-Battery life rocks
-4G LTE is jaw-droppingly awesome
-The Nokia-exclusive apps are a major value one shouldn't overlook
Cons: -Don't discredit yet, I'm getting used to the camera, but so far it's working good
-Somehow I feel the micro-USB is a tad short... shrug, that's me being nitpicky
-THIS IS NOT A CON OF THE DEVICE, BUT OF THE STATUS QUO: WP7 deserves more attention!
Summary: Okay, I am what many would consider an early adopter at times. I had the first Samsung Focus within a month of launch. Ever since, that phone has been an awesome experience. However, even though I've been dedicated to Samsung for years with their phones, Nokia lured me away for a number of reasons (sorry Samsung, you didn't get a 4G LTE Windows Phone out fast enough)... First off, I seriously wanted a phone that actually felt like it was made for Windows Phone, and Nokia nailed it bar none. In fact, all Windows Phone handsets should follow Nokia's example of making something both solid, yet elegant. I seriously cannot get over how good this phone feels in my hand! Believe me when I say that getting used to the power/lock button on the same side as the volume and camera took nearly no getting used to at all. In fact, I actually think it's better, so I can have all my control on one side. Now with all that said, allow me to emphasize one of the greatest features on the phone: the screen. The Focus used a Super-AMOLED, but this AMOLED with clear-black is just way beyond words. People b*&%# about the resolution, and I say it really is handled to the highest extent considering. Furthermore, the reflective aspect of this screen is also amazing. Seriously, you can look at it in daylight and not have to squint. Going onto the 4G LTE, I live in Kansas City, and it is just mindblowing. My web pages are loading at a pace I cannot comprehend. I supposed I would be able to if ever a "5G" device makes it out. But moving on, the fact you can get 4G LTE for a cool hundred is a no brainer. But that gets me to another item.
Windows Phone is seriously a different OS that deserves attention in the mainstream market. Tech sites like Windows Phone immensely. Many complain of the limited number of apps. Well, allow me to remind the public that when Windows Phone launched there were only 2,000. Now the 100K mark will be breached this summer, so I don't even want anyone to say "there are no apps," because there are many who will disagree. Plus, when you also have integration from Facebook and Twitter (something I don't use BTW), which also includes FB chat stock in the messaging hub, what's not to like?! And the camera functionality is actually what other phone standards should try to mimic more of, because using a Windows Phone camera is to me the best! Right now though, I've been trying to get adjusted to using the onboard Zeiss lens on this puppy, and so far it's going good, but I know I'll become used to it. Oh yeah, have an XBOX 360? Well, I'm just going to say that the integration of Live on board is just awesome. Heck, since using Windows Phone, I've gained 200+ gamerscore on this platform, so needless to say it really is a gamer phone too.
I seriously think Windows Phone, once again, deserves more attention because of all that I said, and this phone too. So there you have it. A hundred bucks you get a solid device on 4G LTE, with a superb mobile OS. If you want to pay the same for less, especially talking iPhone, that's your choice, but I have to say you have no idea what you are missing.
All that I have said only scratches the surface on not only how awesome it truly is, the phone and OS, but the amount of satisfaction current users have.
