Ha ha ha ha.....1300mAh battery size for 2013 smartphone !
no doubt, Nokia smartphone poor power backup has spoilt most lumia sale markets.
I was worried about getting a Nokia since they fell from grace, doubly wasn't sure about using windows 8 on a phone when my tablet has been running android so well.
I had NOTHING to fear.
This range of phones will put Nokia back on the map. Whether it's the basics of this phone which are all high quality...higher than you are expecting for the price.
Apps , not so many as android but the list is growing..and there is less crap. The apps seem more useful than a lot of the android ones.
Tiny battery really worried me, battery life is fantastic. Also the move to stay at a lower resolution was a good move. The picture is perfect, better than my tablet. Netflix runs awesome..and for hours.
The camera is great and the "augmentation" abilities really shine. For 5mp(front) it's very sharp. And the VGA cam is perfectly sufficient for Skype. I used Skype for a video call and again works beautifully.
And unlike the "real" windows you aren't setting things up for hours. They just work!
Sound quality is awesome. I could go on and on...but the fun is in finding these features yourself.
What makes this so great is...it's not that novelty phone that people buy. You know the one with the full hd screen that never looks or feels like a phone!
THIS IS A PHONE it looks and feels just right, easy to use. Yet under the bonnet is a host of abilities.
The GPS is worth a mention, incredibly accurate.
Well this will perform it's most basic duties without feeling cumbersome. There is a rubber case and screen protector(6 pack) kit you can buy for about 4 quid. BUY IT. the piece of mind it buys is well worth it.
I have not had a new phone in a while, with all the competition it's easy to pay too much, buy crap or just make do with whatever bum choice you feel you have made.
Honestly I was worried I would be sending this phone back within a week, now i cant imagine not having it. Even my girlfriend with her "xperia" keeps saying "wow" when i find yet another cool app on this phone.
What came as a bit of a shock was seeing this thing run a 3D game. It hadn't even crossed my mind..yet there it is playing "need for speed" with better graphics than a PSP and I'm steering using the phones sensors and it didn't feel pants. A totally unexpected but well received feature.
You can go to O2 and get this phone free if you enter into a 24 month contract. 600 minutes ANY NETWORK, unlimited texts, and 750mb data(can be increased) that is costing me £22 P/M.
For me getting this phone as part of a contract negates the price from my mini review,the only downside is thwe small 8gb memory. But one memory card later and problem solved.
5 out of 5 stars. PERFECT (people wanting the VERY BEST may find this review less accurate for them)
