sleek sharp design
windows phone 8 os
This is one good looking phone. I chose the blue one, looks real nice. It has sharp corners, slightly rounded back and a blue polycarbonate back, very distinctive. not like those iphone and android clones with rounded corners and squarish looks. There's not need for a case, the polycarbonate provides a good, comfortable grip . I never drop it.
The Windows 8 OS works really well, very intuitive. There's a lot of complaints aimed at the desktop version of Windows 8 but on the phone, it's perfect! YOu can pin anything on the startup screen, be it facebook, email, twitter, voice call, pdf and easily unpin them.
The other features work as it should, like the camera, wifi, bluetooth, music etc. but it's missing a micro sd slot.
but my biggest gripe is the battery, it will last a day of normal use, however if i surf the net for 3, 4 hours, the battery bars goes down quick. there's a battery saver function but I havent' tried it yet. guess I have to turn it on from now on.
Experience: 2 Months
Beautiful, Slim, FAST,
No microSD slot!
While very functional and capable, this phone's biggest claim to fame is it's amazing design. I have never held a phone that is it's equal.
Sound quality is really good on this phone. While I think the beats thing is a bit gimmicky, it doesn't change the fact that of the 4 smartphones I've had over the years (and media players) this cranks out the loudest, and clearest sound. That includes call quality too! (it is a phone after all). If sound quality is important to you, take this phone very seriously.
Front facing camera is the best on the market bar none. Rear facing camera is very good too, but not quite as good some others I've used (though pretty darn close).
Screen is just the right size for me (though some may find 4.3" too big). Screen is what you would expect from a top-tier smartphone and is one of the best from a color accuracy/brightness/glare perspective. Has a great crisp HD display.
I love the shape and feel of the phone, it fits so nice in my hand, and in my pocket since it has a nice slim tapered body. The color is very eye catching (mine is the blue one) and EVERYONE I know comments on how striking it is.
Battery is average. Easily gets through the whole day for me, though not 2.
I don't use a case (doesn't really need one because of the gorilla glass on the front and whatever you call that grippy material on the back). Had it for about a month now and it's actually taken a few mild tumbles onto the floor (tile). Not even a scratch on it so I'm pretty impressed so far (though I'm sure things would be different if it landed on concrete).
If you're considering this phone, all you need to do is hold one in a store and you'll probably like it.
MY ONE GRIPE:
Windows Phone 8 aside (it's still maturing), this phone has all the bells & whistlers save one important one for me - a microSD slot. It's true that with cloud storage it's not as important to me as it used to be, but I still miss having one.
Windows Phone 8 is very very easy to use and pretty intuitive, it does offer more out of the box than Android/iPhone IMHO, but still has to catch up in the app department. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I would challenge anyone to actually use it before dismissing it as you will probably be pleasantly surprised on how nice WP8 is to use - as someone who has had iOS & android stuff, I was quite impressed and look forward to seeing how the OS progresses. I will say that there are one or two apps I do miss from Android (my previous phone)
