I'm waiting for gsmarena review of this phone. All other reviews basically say: 1. WP8 is new so it doesn't have a million fart apps. 2. Camera is too honest in daylight and doesn't oversaturate colors. 3. Reviewers need to join a gym. They obviously cant lift a can of redbull up to their face. Nokia is hefty for a reason. Know your meme. Nokia: fall on floor. Breaks floor.

My only concerns are loud speakers and battery test. I want a loud phone that plays music for a very long time.

I really hope WinP8 will resolve the lack of either a sim toolkit or capabilities to execute USSD codes? I visited a phone vendor to ask for discounted Lumia phones today. the vendor adviced me to buy a Nokia phone with Symbian Belle instead. he told me that I will not be able to use Nokia Windows phones to access mobile banking facilities (usually accessed through sim toolkit or USSD codes). If what I heard today is correct WinP 7.5 and 8 will not sell in Markets where there is a mobile banking boom. Despite the problems, I still have a resolve to buy Nokia phone.

Samsung , nokia & iphone are masters of their own field.
If u want good touch - go to iphone
If u want good camera - go to nokia
If u wana satisfactory phone- go to samsung

I believe some times its iritating 2 c that a samsung worth 15k having android is presented with wave android in galaxy s3. There shoulb be something different with d features in such costly phones. Fox exapmle HTC one which had fast camera. Nokia with windows is a good optn for ppl who like to try new things.

The HTC and Nokia phones are made out of polycarbonate. At first thought that might sound like a good idea but polycarbonate contains the hormone influencing compound bisphenol A. Studies have shown that this compound easily leaks from different kinds of products and affects us more than we first thought possible. It is suspected to be a carcinogen. I'd recommend avoiding all products containing this compound.
