Summary: I bought the Nokia Lumia as a present for my daughter for doing well in her exams but it has proved unusable. She was unable to download any apps. We had to setup a micro-soft account to download any apps - we encountered untold problems with this . I checked online and many people have the same problem. I have spent three days online trying to get the problem sorted with no resolution to date.
Summary: Am very, very disappointed. The plastic pressure point on the cover to operate the on-off switch is very poorly constructed and did not even allow me to turn the device on and off easily. I had to switch to a very old Nokia basic phone for duration of my overseas trip. I will not buy a Windows phone again.
Never Purchase a Nokia Mobile because of their customer services.

Excerpt: Never purchase a mobile from Nokia if you purchase then you also have to suffer as I am doing after spending 22K on a nokia mobile phone. Worth less customer care service Nokia provide in India. Nokia care center can change all of your new parts with old one if you submit your mobile for repairing. No commitment - Nokia customer care executive make fake commitments and also they can try to misguide you because they asked me for 7 days but 23 days gone.
Summary: After few days of usage it locked up and will not respond to the power up button. Had to leave it to fully discharge. unfortunately since I live outside the US there was no way to meet the strict return deadline of Amazon. If Amazon means to sell outside America this is a policy that needs urgent review. On a more serious note there is quality problem with the Nokia Lumia phones. I also bought a Nokia Lumia 620 same time. Guess what - it arrived DEAD (DOA).
Summary: The description states that the phone is unlocked and would work with the Telus network. I phoned Telyus and was told that the phone is locked. Now I have to go through the trouble of unlocking it and have had no help from the vendor.
Summary: Ok, so lets point out the good things first of all. I love windows Phones, the look, the capability and the speed in comparison to iphone or Android. Many talk of the lack of apps but I can count less than a handful I miss from my Android days. This is the third Nokia Lumia I have had. The first being the Lumia 800which was stylish and robust. Then I got the Lumia 720 and I just loved it. The phone is slim and houses in a sealed unit.
Summary: I bought this and it had this problem and had to give for service. Now they say the board has to be replaced. May be I got a defective piece ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary: Really windows need to grow up.Have to wait few more years.Don't worth buying windows phone now.You wont get all that smart phone feel.Android has lag and other issues but is flexible and versatile with lot of customization and apps.Whereas windows has limitations on features that is even easier and user friendly on basic phones. Windows UI is boring everything like tiles look the same, though the OS is more stable.
