Great little phone that isn't from apple, you should have one!
2 August 2013
Excerpt: Very good product, but the arrive has 16gb not 8 It has a qwerty keyboard, touchscreen, and a 5 mp camera. Its connected to the xbox games store for some nice apps. a 5 mp camera makes for some clear pictures, the colors are nice and accurate. Battery could be better, and like all phones, the more apps you add the worse it gets, along with overcharging and charging too many times adds to the battery woes.
Summary: I have been looking for some time on Ebay and the internet as a whole for a smartphone with a slider keyboard with a number row.I wanted the number row to use for dialing as I have a minor tremor which makes it difficult to use touch screen dialer (and I didn't want a physical dial pad on the outside of the phone for phantom calls which I had with a previous phone.
Pros: Amazing call quality(at least where I live) Great QWERTY keyboard, good screen(AMOLED is nice but you really aren't going to notice this phone doesn't have it unless you put it side by side to an AMOLED), sturdy, great U.S. Cellular option!
Cons: Battery life could be better but you can easily get a days use out of it, Some minor flaws in Windows Phone ( Wont get into it here, just look em' up), and no expandable memory.

Pros: Easy Email and Calendar set up
Cons: No SD Card... No SIM Card... Can't archieve Texts... Can't sellect sort options for email... email counter clears after you check it w/o opening the email... has to use Zune to work with audio/pics/video... No user ring tones can be used... merges all you
Summary: Love this phone the big screen makes everything better fast and smooth all day. this is one of the best windows phone out there but there are two little problem with it like the camera which is kind of unbalance between backgrounds and the battery could be better.
Summary: I WP7 to be the best cell phone operating system. I used Android and I phone, and WP7 bests them. That is not to say it has no short coming. I upgraded to HD7 from HTC HD2. Win Mobile 6.5 which is the operating system in HD2, is clunky and most developers stopped developing for it. But it allowed one to tether a notebook PC. HD7 does not allow it! I gathered that it is a function that was disabled by T-mobile, and is not organic to wp7.
Summary: Absolutely LOVE this PHONE! Smooth as silk! Highly recommend to anyone! HTC Smartphones are by FAR superior to any phone manufacturer! Microsoft is definitely on the right track with this Operating System. We can only hope they continue to support this system....not to mention get the bugs removed from their "antiquated, UPDATE SYSTEM".
Summary: the phone as a device is awesome... huge display is incredible... windows phone OS is unfortunately buggy, freezes from time to time the market place for the apps wants to be good but there are things that you will miss inside it in compare when you tried google market at least once... :) i really like the integration with the microsoft live service as well as with the facebook... emailing works fine...
Summary: I've had this phone for a few days now and so far I am satisfied with my purchase. Window Phone 7 is a good operating system and I am looking forwards to it's growth in the months to come. Emailing, web browsing, SMS, calendar are great plus the office mobile is a nice extra. The third party games are amazing and the I've found some very useful app and I am sure to find more as the marketplace expands.
