I bought W8 three days ago, I liked all features except "Battery Life", "Internal Memory Size", "Music Player does not have equalizer", "Bounded to install application only on Internal Memory".
What to say more, in a sentence "I am not satisfied at this price tag (Rs. 10050/-)".
Phone is slow for some application. I installed some application and games and it was on low memory.
You can not Set wallpaper by going through "Album" directly. It gives error about "Low Heap Memory".
May be there would be some app to provide equalizer or different music player, low internal memory problem.
I liked the style, Design and way of OS works, OS animation way, its cool.
There are lot of hidden features that have to find like zooming of picture (You can do by double tapping on picture), how to add widget, set wallpapers, how to delete message etc. I have not read the catalog of this phone but i like to find app and process by own.

All i can give this phone is 5/10 right now. If this phone is applicable to upgrade OS version or get latest OS version W8 will deserve 7/10.

These are the following d merits which i found with S E W8 phone..... equiliser in the audio player(walkman).
2.the volume in speaker is bit low and also in headset is bit louder(its not that good to here continuos music as the sound kinda breaks at the max volume).
3.only qwerty keyboard and no alpha-numeric keyboard as the beginners to this kind ll face difficulty in typing msgs at a fast rate.
