2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Distinguished, iconic design
  • Great hand fit, because of the slim, and long design
  • Larger (4 inches) Retina Display with well saturated colors, strong brightness output, and superb viewing angles
  • iOS is, as always a pleasure to use, and has an easy learning curve (although many would feel that the visual interface could do with an overhaul - the simplistic icon based interface now looks a bit boring compared to other modern smartphones)
  • Excellent app ecosystem
  • Smooth, fluid performance
  • Great camera
  • Superb call quality with noise cancellation
  • Incredibly thin and light
  • Great web browser
  • Nice, colorful design
  • Sturdy build
  • Slick Windows Phone interface
  • Good set of value-adding preinstalled apps - Office, Here Drive+, Lumia Camera, Lumia Storyteller, Lumia Refocus, etc
  • Decent primary camera
  • Nice, wide-angle 5-megapixel secondary camera
  • Decent battery life
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The new maps app by Apple, lags far behind Google Maps in terms of comprehensiveness
  • Average display
  • The Windows app store continues to a downside for the platform, with relatively limited app selection available when compared to Android or iOS
  • Under-powered processor can result in a sluggish interface at times
