Customer Review

on 26 September 2013
This phone is basically a Microsoft device masquerading as a Nokia phone. Having read the majority of the reviews here, plus others online, I would agree with many of them. This device is basically good value for the money, and a fine introduction into Windows 8 smart phones. I have owned mine for just over a month now, and generally I am pleased with it. Battery life is not fantastic, but overall not bad, charging every three days with moderate usage. Maybe I am lucky though, as other persons seem to get less time. The screen is clear and the device has sufficient apps for me. I bought mine in black, but now replacement covers are available in the other colours, so I might treat myself and purchase a couple more in different shades. The device appears quite strong, without creaks or groans. However in my opinion a wi fi connection is essential, as there appear to be regular updates and all of which cost a horrendous amount if using the normal Internet connection. Since upgrading the phone I have noticed a few benefits in the camera and clarity of the screen. The cons, why no zoom on the camera? In addition, on my previous Nokia Asha phone it was possible to access the memory card without removing the back of the phone and the battery. Not so on this device! Why not? In our home we have three computers, Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. This device was not recognised by any of them, so it was necessary to remove the memory card when downloading music, photos, etc. In addition, do purchase a 32Gb or 64Gb memory card, as the 8Gb card I bought with mine was very soon full! I appreciate it is built to a price, but surely these two additions of camera and card removal could have been installed without raising the price too much! I understand that further upgrades are planned by Microsoft, so I will see what comes along in due course. I will update this review in a few months time.
