Summary: -The screen is terrible. The resolution is too low and it doesn't get nearly bright enough in broad daylight to see anything on the screen.
Pros: First off, the Newegg description is incorrect. This phone has "4G", which means it runs off T-Mobile's HSPA +21 network and can get download speeds faster than regular 3G, but it is not an LTE phone.
Summary: It's just fast enough to do a little bit of everything. No flash for the camera?!? seriously? takes great pics in well lit places. And no front camera so bye bye skype I previously owned a motorola charm, so I'm pretty happy with this new phone compared to that ancient brick.
Great to start with smart phones and Windows phones. Great value price.

Summary: This phone is an excellent starting phone for those getting into the new Windows phone system. It is easy to use in most aspects and the battery is very long lasting despite the heavy use I gave it. It wont be up to par with the latest models or high end phones right now, but for the features and price it offers you can't go wrong with this one.
Summary: Read the other reviews and you'll now how good the phone is. I don't understand why nobody has commented on how horrible windows 8 is yet? There's no apps worth getting, almost no apps are official such as Youtube facebook and twitter. And the ones they do have are horrible and confusing. The stock internet explorer app crashes, freezes and causes my phone to restart. Windows 8 is also VERY VERY confusing and unorganized.
Excerpt: Along with the 520/620, the best smart phone in its price range by miles and miles. The main reason I picked one up was just to play with it and perhaps for use as a development tool but the OS really brings out the best in the lower end hardware. I wasn't expecting much from this phone when I...
Summary: This phone is great for the money. So far the battery seems to last all day - even when I'm using it and playing games. My only wish is that the camera had flash. It's very easy to use and learn, even as a first time windows phone user. It comes with a few preloaded apps that you can uninstall if you don't want/need them, which is nice. It's very easy to set up and activate. If you're looking for a new phone, I would definitely suggest this one.
Great product, worth the money, wish it had a front screen camera!!

Summary: I bought this phone because it's a smart phone with a prepaid option. A two year contract wasn't what I was looking for but I also didn't want a crappy phone...the Nokia Lumia is right in the sweet spot with monthly plans and smart phone features! My biggest issue with the Lumia is the lack of a front screen camera. I love Skype and use it frequently, but without the front screen camera, that's pretty much impossible.
