Summary: The Arrive is a great phone, i got it because i wanted to try out something besides Android and iOS. WP 7.5 is easy to use with a very different style. The phone takes good pictures and has a great display. I have found 1 drawback after 2 months of having it, app developers do not make apps for WP 7.5 like they do on both other platforms so you can't play popular games or games with your friends like bike race this is why I only gave it 4 stars.
Summary: I can't stand Microsoft, but this phone is brilliant. It's fast, easy to navigate, and really streamlines the things you use most often in a phone. The good: - Contacting people, organizing groups, and social networking is a breeze. Windows Live makes synchronizing contacts and schedules with your PC effortless.
Great phone and OS combo. The battery life is just OK.

Summary: I bought this phone after my wife got one. I was an Android user and really liked the Android platform. But after playing around with my wife's WP7 phone, I decided to try one myself. I have not been disappointed. I love the UI, and the responsiveness of this phone and OS combination is great. I have had it for a little over a month now and it has not crashed on me yet. No reboots or power downs. The only negative I have is the battery life.
Once used to the design something you could fall in love with

Summary: Great phone as all Windows phone. Smoothly keeps you connected and does what other phones do without the hassle of needing an app for everything. For those things the OS doesn't do the Marketplace has plenty of quality apps available negative the hundreds of thousands of gargabe apps Android and Apple is bragging about. Smooth and fast user friendly interface.
Summary: Everyday I use WP7 I love it more and more. The hardware is ok only unit offered on Sprint right now. Although the slider has a great touch and is easy to type on you will never use it. The onscreen keyboard is so good that the slider is not required. Nice feel in the hand for a slider but has the traditional thickness of this style of phone. The OS is the winner here!
Excellent OS and hardware but needs more apps in the Marketplace

Summary: I bought this phone for my mother-in-law who is not so tech-savvy. The Windows Phone 7 OS is pretty easy to navigate and very fast to respond. And with the upgrade to 7.5 (Mango) it makes it a lot easier to integrate social networking and browse the web. The only thing I don't like is the lack of apps. I also had trouble getting it to purchase apps (seems like a Windows Live account AND a Zune account need to be in sync??).
Definitely recommend it if you're switching from WebOS or a Windows PC user

Summary: Switching to this Windows Phone from a Palm Pre. Some things are requiring some adjustment, and some things I definitely preferred the way they were handled in WebOS. But other things I like better about this new phone, especially the larger choice in applications. Overall I find Windows Phone to be a reasonably simple & intuitive experience - on par with WebOS while different.
