Fantastic phone if you keep your charger close.
on 6 November 2013
camera - 5/5
camera on low light - 5/5
video rec - 5/5
video rec on low light - 3/5
uploading mp3 - 1/5, can only be done with ZUNE app on Windows platform. This app does not see my phone on my Vista and I couldn't find solution as yet. As Ubuntu user I have no way to upload music so far.
maps - 5/5, can be used off line which is great when you are abroad, you don't have to roam to find your hotel. Just don't forget to download maps for country you r going to.
apps - 4/5, quite a good range but be careful as some apps do not close and still work in a background draining the battery. (Can be controlled in phone settings)
battery - 0/5, playing angry birds for an hour discharges battery to 40% from full. When playing the phone gets hot.
With bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, data ON - battery wont last even a day. Listening to music will last only about 4 hours.
Charging takes several hours comparing to NOKIA N95 which was charging full in 20-30 minutes.
Interesting is, you can locate/lock/erase your phone if it gets stolen even if the simm card was replaced (I think).
In addition - after 4 months I have small scratches on the screen!!! It was suppose to be scratch resistant.
It's just like if someone made a good product with some cheap parts.
After 4 months of using it I can say I don't like it - mostly because of the poor performance of the battery. It's just frustrating.
My previous one - N8 was performing much better.
Would I recommend it? Not with this battery...
