Summary: I loved this phone except for one thing, NO GOOGLE APPS Microsoft apps is not working for me and they didn't have any. Not a huge selection of apps at all maybe like 100 altogether but other than that the phone was good nice big screen beautiful w8 layout I ended up selling it
it was easy enough to reset the phone without losing the app ...

Summary: I recently answered a question on whether the phone I bought was a clone or prefab. It is not a Nokia Android clone of the Windows8 OS. If it is a prefab, I don't know. As I stated in the response, I thought Nokia manufactured their phones in Sweden not in Hong Kong. Probably assembled in China and distributed to the International market out of Hong Kong. The phone was preconfigured for the Hong Kong Market.
Summary: i like it for its a user-friendly phone, the battery life is good, and its price is affordable. I received it within the range of its delivery estimate. I only give it a "3-star" rating for I was disappointed as I opened its box, the manual/guide inside is not in English language but instead in Thai/Siamese which i don't understand....
Summary: I am upset only to the fact that they are advertising that it is 4G, yes it is, but not on US networks. On T-mobile it is only capable of 2G; The RM-994 is capable of 3G on at&t network only, T-mobiles 2G. The RM-996 is only 2G capable in the US. So please know this before you buy, Like I did..
Excerpt: We needed a phone with a large clear screen due to poor eyesight and this one is huge with good brightness.
Sadly the build quality is not the same as the old nokia phones now the the company's owner is microsoft, the software is smooth and and quite fast, however the phone is very fragile plastic, the corner of the back cover is cracked already due to us having to remove the sim when it occasionally glitches, it's also very heavy and cumbersome to hold..
Summary: Beyond amazing, it has certainly surpassed my expectations. I moved from Android after 4 years and 4 separate phones ( I had the Galaxy back before they started numbering them !). Battery life on this thing is unbelievable, and windows phone is certainly trying and it shows; there are so many little things and features which make the phone a pleasure to use.
Excerpt: Overall its a good product ... It is a large 6 inch plastic phablet...but a better pricing and specs could have made it a great product. The battery consumption is less due to mild specs and the lack of a full HD display.... lasts 2 days without charging on average use.
