phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 8 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Great, high quality build with unibody construction
  • Great screen quality (vibrant colours, solid viewing angles, good sunlight legibility, and good levels of responsiveness)
  • Slick Windows Phone UI with excellent integration of social networks
  • Great contacts integration with social networks
  • Silky smooth web browser
  • Good camera (good level of detail and color reproduction, good video recording)
  • Great audio quality with Dolby Mobile and SRS
  • Excellent call quality
  • Excellent loudspeaker

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Number of apps available for Windows Phone is currently limited, relative to Android and iOS (although most of the popular apps are still available, so this shouldn't matter to an average user)
  • No mass storage mode (Zune-only file management and sync)
