They should specify that this phone only has 4g coverage in europe

Alejandro Martinez Carmona, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: The phone is amazing, however it has no 4G support because it is the RM-875 model that is supposed to be sold in europe. It won't have 4G coverage in america. If you don't care about 4G coverage buy it.

Falls Short

rdlollar, Wireless AT&T
29 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm a business user, and my phone lets me manage my life. Lots of flipping back and forth from email to contacts to calls etc. and I use it all day long This phone is heavy, well built, great camera and the Windows OS is very fluid and easy to use. Here's the major problem, the battery life is horrible. I can hardly use the phone without having to plug it in immediately after.
  • Pros: camera , style , quality construction
  • Cons: battery , no expandable sd card

Such a limited offering

Pipersmom, Wireless AT&T
27 August 2013
  • Summary: I was hoping for more from this phone, but outside of the camera, which is terrific, it's a horrifying experience. Horrifying in the sense that you can do nothing with this OS and I mean nothing. The Live Tiles are hardly live...they simply do not update. The ecosystem is barron, there are very few quality apps. Nokia did a pretty nice job with the hardware, but the Windows OS is just not suited for someone who actually uses their smartphone.
  • Pros: nice camera
  • Cons: windows os , live tiles don't update , windows ecosystem is embarrassing , zero customization to the windows os , not a true smartphone

Perfect phone for someone who doesn't need a smartphone

VirtualReality, Wireless AT&T
26 August 2013
  • Summary: I have used this phone for a few weeks but at the end had to sell it... Yes, it has an excellent (currently the best) photo/video camera for a smartphone, but other than that - there's nothing else that makes it stand out. The Windows Phone OS is horribly limited, even more than Apple's iOS, the fancy "live tiles" often fail to update themselves no matter what you do (soft resets/hard resets, enabling/disabling background tasks, reinstalling the apps, etc.
  • Pros: good camera quality and features. , good physical build quality , easy to use for a toddler or a senior person
  • Cons: inconsistent battery life , very limited built-in apps (browser/mail) , very limited os (not customizable enough) , laughable number of apps in app store , extremely expensive even on 2-year contract

Nice camera, but...

daveBleepityBleep, Wireless AT&T
16 August 2013
  • Summary: After a week I can say I really hate this phone. I've never been so sourly disappointed in a piece of technology. The phone itself is sturdy enough, easily pocketable and attractive, but the OS is a huge problem. There are few apps, and the ones I use (Twitter, Facebook etc) are inferior to what we have on ios and even Blackberry. We have a couple iPhone 4s, iPod Touch; I just got rid of the Blackberry, so we have some experience here.
  • Pros: nice camera
  • Cons: short battery life , limited app store , microsoft owns a part of you , poor built-in email client

Over hyped camera and battery

Pronerd, Wireless AT&T
4 August 2013
  • Summary: This phone is basically the 920 with a better camera and a 200% markup. The claim of 41 mega pixels could be argued to explain that markup except for a few details. 1. The actual resolution you get in the images is only 33 Mega pixels. 2. Even at that reslution you need a tripod to really capture an image with that much detail. The human hand can not hold a the phone perfectly stable so as you zoom in you find you just zooming into a lot of blur. 3.
  • Pros: windows8
  • Cons: bad battery , over hyped camera

User Review

  • Summary: I have in recent years experienced Android and have been very satisfied with the system, especially with the latest versions. Since I am now going to be buying a new phone and not averse to test the new system, I made an impulse purchase because of the positive reviews this mobile have got here on PriceSpy. I regret to say that this device gave me my worst and most frustrating mobile experience since the iPhone.

  • Excerpt: I want to make this straight forward... I cannot receive a call through viber everytime my phone is in idle mode or even when the viber application has been closed... they told me that I am OFFLINE eventhough I am not... this problem keeps on occurring even I uninstall and reinstall my viber application... I am really upset... that is why I decided to switch my sim card from nokia 1020 to my Samsung galaxy s4...

Not so impressed

StuCgy, Rogers
20 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm a bit surprised at all the 5 star reviews. I have had at least one of all the major phones at one time or another. iPhone, Blackberry, Android. This is my first Windows phone. I was hoping for a lot more from a phone with the big screen, a monster camera and Windows 8.0. The camera, at 41 megapixels, is pretty bad. I am a photographer and have a number of cameras at home, and even my small Canon 10 MP takes a much better photo than this Lumia does.
