2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The Contacts App still remains a bit sparse (relative to competition from Android and Windows Phones), and does not offer any add-on features like social networking integration, message history or album connectivity
  • The glossy rear is a fingerprint magnet and it scratches easily
  • Average camera
  • The dual-tone finish (matte and gloss) is a bit of an eyesore
