A high quality phone that seems to be hampered by the OS.
one guys opinion, Amazon

Summary: I REALLY liked this phone. The size/shape/feel to me were exactly what I wanted. It felt substantial and solid. The layout and buttons were exactly where I intuitively wanted them. When I found this phone, I was happy to finally find a smart phone I felt was set up the way I wanted a phone to be. I even liked the look and feel of the Windows phone OS on this device. The holster for it was also perfect for me. Unfortunately, the Windows phone OS had too many issues.
Looks good, but will cover you for couple of months only

Summary: I've been using it just for about 5 months, and its really great in a way it looks and way it avoids fingerprints getting printed over all around. But as shown in some customer images, within 2nd month the corners started breaking a bit - this was without it falling, just the normal wear and tear taking it out of pockets I guess? Today while taking it out, the crack just extended to the volume buttons opening. I bought the case for $7.
Good phone, but buy it new or actually refurbished.

Summary: Great phone, was pretty beat up beyond what the description lead me to believe, the box was from Asia, so setting it up for english was fun... Also the camera appears to be defective at times, takes solid white photos.
Summary: I will post up front that I have been a Windows phone fan, and have owned numerous phones going back a couple generations. From this generation I have owned the 925, plus the HTC 8x and Samsung Ativ S Neo, trying to find one I am totally please with. That has not happened and I will give my view of the three so others much get a better idea which might suit them based on their priorities.
