phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 10 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Solid unibody construction, light feel, soft touch finish
  • Available in a wide array of colors
  • Beautiful display with exquisitely sharp details (342 ppi pixel density), punchy colors, wide viewing angles, and good visibility outdoors
  • Windows Phone UI is slick, smooth and lag-free
  • Great social networking integration
  • Great on-screen QWERTY keyboard
  • Good audio/video playback
  • Good call quality
  • Good battery life
  • Good integration with Microsoft Office

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Average camera
  • Average loudspeaker
  • Physical power button key and volume controls are flush and difficult to feel out
  • Windows Phone continues to be a distinctive, pretty looking UI but falls behind in functionality and customization, when compared to Android
  • The Windows Phone app store also continues to lag far behind Android and iOS in the availability and quality of 3rd party apps
  • Bing maps is far less comprehensive, when compared to Google Maps or Nokia Maps
