I've had this phone since it first came out and from build quality, OS, Interface, Reliability and capability I can't think of a better phone for non Iphone users. I like the IPhone but I prefer Windows 8 phones for ease of use and interfaces.
This phone sits between the two basically. It's interface is very easy to use and for anyone who wants something that is like an Iphone minus the gimmicks then you really can't beat it. It take a bit of getting to used to, but haven't found anything wrong with it that is weaker than any other phone around, in fact I hate Blackberry's but LOVE this phone, you can even do a "Playbook" and screenshot anything on screen by pressing both volume buttons which is useful, but there are so many features its not even worth listing.
A great phone that is a great alternative to the markey leaders, no gimmicks.
