phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 7 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Stylish, premium design, with many color options
  • Back panel has a soft-touch matte effect which feels good to hold
  • Excellent, bold display with rich colours, deep black levels, and high brightness levels
  • Slick, minimalist Windows Phone interface
  • Good collection of in-built Nokia apps
  • Butter-smooth speed/performance throughout
  • Brilliant camera, that is easily up there with the best
  • Fluid and stable video footage with 3x lossless zoom
  • Good audio quality
  • Excellent call quality

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Chunky design with a relatively heavy 167g weight means it can be cumbersome when you're typing one-handed
  • Average battery life
  • Windows Phone 8.1 currently (as on October 2014) doesn't come with the Cortana voice assistant outside of the US
  • The Windows Phone platform continues to suffer from a mediocre app selection, when compared to Android, or iOS
