2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 10 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Solid unibody construction, light feel, soft touch finish
  • Great on-screen QWERTY keyboard
  • Physical power button key and volume controls are flush and difficult to feel out

Display

  • Beautiful display with exquisitely sharp details (342 ppi pixel density), punchy colors, wide viewing angles, and good visibility outdoors

Software

  • Windows Phone UI is slick, smooth and lag-free
  • Windows Phone continues to be a distinctive, pretty looking UI but falls behind in functionality and customization, when compared to Android

Performance

  • The Windows Phone app store also continues to lag far behind Android and iOS in the availability and quality of 3rd party apps

Camera

  • Available in a wide array of colors
  • Average camera

Audio

  • Good call quality
  • Average loudspeaker

Battery

  • Good battery life

More
