Conflicted: Feeling a little misled, but the product works fine

Summary: Average review not for the device itself, which is actually a fine smartphone. I was upgrading from the HTC HD7, I wanted to get a WP8 device, and the Lumia 520 was specced appropriately for my use. The price here seemed reasonable for a last-gen phone, and although I assumed I wouldn't be getting a retail-packaged device, I did kinda expect a brand new OEM-packaged US unit.
Summary: Decided on a change having owned IPhone's 3 & 4 and a Samsung S2 so opted for the Nokia Lumia 720 which has favorable reviews. It all started well and to be honest I was very impressed. Great quality feel to it and Windows was easy to use and fast; but then it decided to develop a mind of its own and hop uncontrollably between apps regardless of my intervention! The only way I could access the phone was to action a factory reset.
Summary: If I could I would have have awarded it 3.5 stars as 3 is a bit too low but 4 stars would be too positive. Before the 720 I had had an iphone for 4 years and, well, I just fancied a change so decided to go with this on a sim-only deal. This is a good phone it's just that there are ways of interacting with an iphone which just seem to work better, more quickly and more easily such as copying and pasting.
Only three stars for Nokia but five stars for Amazon

Summary: I have enjoyed using this phone, however it has developed a fault after only three months. I could hear the caller but they could not hear me. I followed the procedures on the Nokia website, setting the phone back to factory settings and checking for software updates. Neither worked.
Summary: Pros: 1. Superb UI. Live tiles are great! 2. Smooth, fast and never lags 3. Video and sound quality is great! 4. Here maps are amazing and very accurate. 5. WP8 UI is extended to all apps, makes the app experience sooth as butter and tasty too! 6. Great camera, super pics, no shutter lag 7. Nokia music is a boon. You don't have to be a pirate anymore. 8. Best office experience ever!
Summary: I'm using a Lumia 720 now. Love it from performance to design and price. But, (yeah always there is BUT): 1. Connection bluetooth to other devices very unreliable. i connected to my surface pro and cannot connect, search on internet and all people have same problem and no one can fix. I connected to my jvc car unit, once it connected well but accidentally unpair and now no way to connect it back on. 2. The home button sometime not responding well and not vibrate at all.
Summary: just got this phone today, i'm among few first to owned this phone in my hometown, first time use WP8 (i have Galaxy Note) found it more smooth run with lower spec processor, polycarbonate body feel solid and light, design and size easy in hand. Apps store is ok, i can get what i wanted for free.. one major reason i choose this phone is because of longer battery life...
Pros: Longer battery life between charge, Look Good, Gorilla Glass, Carl Zeiss lens, light, solid construction, smooth operation than android
Summary: I started mostly from the date planned at the beginning on the first. And when it arrived, the package was opened in corrugated paper. Is a customs duty careless as for this? Did someone open? I almost dropped the new article. Is there any Japanese agency? However, goods arrived. And it took about 15 days. thanks!
