Pros: -It looks cool
Cons: -If you crack the screen, it's dead. End of story. -If you drop it on a hard floor once, and JUST once, you will crack the screen, and it will die. End of story. -No apps. -Terrible camera. -Abysmal audio. -No way to multitask. -I could go on and on.
Worst Windows Phone, and Worst Nokia Phone I have ever owned.

Summary: The Hardware ============== Call Quality - Excellent (Typical of all Nokia Phones) The Build Quality - Excellent (Typical of all Nokia Phones) The screen - Good, vibrant, scratch resistant and repels facial grease, IS NOT GORILLA GLASS and is noticeably more fragile. Loudspeaker - A little on the soft side The Software ============== I have been an avid Windows user since Windows 98, and a Windows Phone user since Windows Phone 7.
Summary: Nokia penny-pinched on this phone by not including Gorilla Corning Glass. Today, my screen broke, just by having it in my back pocket of my pants and sitting on a chair. Either I have buns of steel, or the glass on this phone is extremely fragile.
Summary: Windows Phone is great the phone is well made and there are some great apps. But the phone is completely useless if you try and use an SD card with it. Nokia say it supports SDXC cards up to 64GB however if you speak to their support they will tell you that the only available 64GB cards have problems when used with this phone and they can't recommend any cards that do work.
Summary: I bought this 'phone for use in the UK from Tech World Direct. Around four months after the purchase I had a small software glitch and contacted Nokia Support for help. From the EMEI number of my telephone they told me that it was made for sale and use in Israel, not the UK and they were not sure if they could convert it to work properly in the UK. They went on to tell me that it would also not be covered by any warrenty as it was not in use as intended in Israel.
please read all the forum reviews before buying any smart phone

Summary: I loved this phone when I saw in the shop but wanted an unlocked phone so ordered it. It arrived next day and as per description. The phone is overall good with windows platform but it could do well with internet but the calls - a real problem. You can't hear and person who is calling can't hear you. Amazon agreed for full refund.
Summary: Purchased this phone, was supposed to be new and unblocked. When it came it was not in plastic wrapper like all other new phones. I had to go get it unblocked from local dealer. It has never worked properly since. I should have sent it back. Now I need to go buy another phone.
Excerpt: I purchased this phone to upgrade my previous Lumia phone (720), and assumed that it would work just as well as my last one. Unfortunately I found that this did not happen. From the first day I received the device I had issues with the phone restarting at seemingly random points. Sometimes when I was in a call, sometimes when using apps and sometimes when I wasn't even using the phone. This is an inconvenience and I was not impressed at all.
Pretty sure this phone is locked, please someone help!!!!

Summary: This phone says unlocked, but it seems to me that it's locked. I've tried everything I can think of. But I don't know who the original operator was to even request an unlock code. Can anyone help me??? The seller was Amazon EU S.A.R.L. and there is no way to contact the seller (can't detect from that name if it was amazon or a 3rd party) and no way to get in touch with anyone about the issue. I really need some help. I'm guessing I'm going to have to just send it back???
Excerpt: I dropped this phone from chest height onto floor boards. The screen broke and went completely blank. I even had a heavy duty rubberised cover fitted to it. I sent it in for repair and it's unrepairable. I now need to replace it and I'm certainly not going to with another Nokia. It lacked heaps of features compared to my old push-button Nokia. The screen had some intermittent issue with magnifing in on itself when a call was received making it impossible to answer.
