Excerpt: The title says most of it. This is my second windows phone. When I first got it I put it through its paces while I could still return it (VZN gives you a 30-day period in which if you're deeply unsatisfied, you can return the phone). I took pictures in bright sunlight and movies in the dark.
Pros: Camera (awesome), Audio, especially 4-mic recording and the 7-band equalizer., Call quality and the RF section. This phone hangs on to the channel by its bloody fingernails. Very impressive for a smartphone - most of them suck when compared to feature phones., Hey Cortana! 'Nuff said. Makes Siri ...
Cons: OLED display doesn't allow "Glance" feature, which worked great on my old Lumia 822. This is really annoying., Battery life. I'm sure you've heard this before. Take an external recharge battery and a car charger with you on trips, you'll need them., It might be too big for people with small hands...
Excerpt: After a two-month journey to New Zealand and the Himalaya, one tester said, “My favorite photos of the trip came from this phone.” Credit the 20MP camera and its responsive sensor that captures even far-away subjects with clarity, allowing you to crop without losing image quality.

Excerpt: My first smartphone was an Android, and I've been hooked on google since. I have a chromebook, nexus 7, iPad, and always had an Android phone... until now. Even with the new KitKat update, I was still experiencing lag when unlocking my phone, opening the app drawer, opening the gallery, making a...
Pros: Camera is flat out beastly, 4 mic video recording sounds better than anything else out there, Smooth OS with no lags, Unique look and feel (hardware and OS)
Cons: Battery lasts all-day, but still wish it was bigger
Excerpt: Thank god I purchased this phone on Verizon Edge. Those without the money to purchase a new phone after a few months of suffrage should just avoid windows phone all together. Unfortunately for Nokia build quality can only take a phone so far...
Excerpt: Despite losing my Xenon flash from the Lumia 928 I upgraded from, this camera more than makes up for it with the higher resolution and decent LED flash. The aluminum band around the edge gives it a high quality build feel and the phone itself is solid physically and operationally.
Excerpt: Its a great phone if you can get through the day with a full charge. I didn't much like the shape of it, but the pros outweigh the cons. currently the best Windows Phone out! I presume with the Windows Phone 8.1 around the corner, the battery issue might be resolved along with some minor bugs when...
Pros: AMOLED screen, HAAC audio, big camera, Big internals
Excerpt: I've had two iphones, an android, and three windows phones. This is the best of the bunch. So fast/responsive, the camera is amazing, battery great. All the apps I need are available now. Overall great phone!
