This is not iris scaner and this tech is used way years ago in Sony,not impressed at all!
After ~2 months usage, its hard to decide whether I rather like it or hate it. Apps like Shazam either work instantly and recognise a song for a second, or don't do it at all. Edge is pain in the ***, since it constantly restarts when I use certain websites. Some functions like quiet hours are way harder to use compared to Android. Cortana is also harder to use compared to Google Talk. Other than that, I like the OS more than Android. News, weather, Office apps work better and are more sophisticated than in Android. Hardware is top notch in my opinion, yet you can find an even better one for a more modest price tag. So far I didn't experience any lag, although there are some random false notifications (Example: got a notification for lack of space, although most of it is empty)
Really hope further updates would fix the performance, and would smooth windows experience

Amazing device! Incredible hardware and camera from outer space!
OS is great as well and gets better in every update. Best device i ever had.
In short? The worst smart phone I had so far. I got it from work and it's close to impossible to use for private use due the the lack of apps. Tech specs are fine, the OS ruins everything.
After 5 days of use

Dont shed your money on this. Every windows phone is same. If you are interested Buy and try one for 5000. You are not going to get anything special in 5000 except better camera, screen, speaker. 3gb ram and processor hardly make any difference is user experience. Windows phone are failure.
Battery life after a week of use is on avg. 5 hours. I have tried switching of every thing including data connection. When I look at the battery use the display takes up 70%. I did change the brightness to 25% but this does not help. Can someone please assist?
