Design

  • Unibody polycarbonate design

Display

  • Pleasant display with iridescent color reproduction, deep black color, and wide viewing angles

Software

  • Slick Windows Phone interface
  • Nokia apps
  • Brilliant 'refocus' app
  • Windows Phone app ecosystem lags behind that of Android and iOS

Performance

  • Silky smooth performance

Camera

  • Brilliant camera - arguably the best ever on a smartphone - takes immaculate pictures, and is a good replacement for a full point-and-shoot camera
  • The camera, while very good, has slow shot-to-shot time, which can be frustrating at times

Audio

  • Excellent loudspeakers
  • Great audio quality
