Using this phone for 3 weeks now.
equipped with New Snapdragon 410 the performance is good.
No lag even when I am using a external 32 GB card.
waiting for the promised windows 10 upgrade.
coming to windows phone , The design is good and expecting it to be better after we get windows 10 official release. apps in store are less but has most of the commonly used ones.
Hi, is this phone has equalizer option under audio settings. If not then anybody tried downloading ms official equalizer app available in windows store? Does it works?
It's $179 on microsoftstore.com right now.
Also, the sticker on the front of mine said 64gb max size SD, however the manufacturer's website still says 32gb.
Pros: Nice screen, good sound through speakers and headphones, lightweight, good ergonomics, good battery life, good mobile signal, camera is surprisingly good when it focuses properly.
Biggest Pro: The glass covering the camera is actually glass, not plastic. It may not be gorilla glass, but it should resist scratches much better than any plastic covering. Besides iPhone, a glass camera cover is rare on even high end phones.
Cons: Build quality is a little flimsy, screen occasionally doesn't respond to taps - especially in camera app. Feels like a 720p screen is a bit too many pixels to push around for a snapdragon 410. Lag in some games, apps, and occasionally when scrolling OS menus. Camera focus is hit and miss.
Biggest Con: Windows Phone's app ecosystem. Even if you do find a first party app it is usually many, many updates behind. Use the same app on an android or iphone side by side with windows phone and the differences are pronounced. Lots of missing features.
There is no way to set up call blocking i.e. maintain a call reject number list on this phone so I will take it back to the Windows store. Also, after I imported my pictures from another windows phone the Picture Icons where different from the actual pictures that appear after clicking on the Icons. Also the "People"ICON on the start page I found impossible to size up larger than the smallest size Icons. This is the icon that takes you directly to the phone contacts. Simply, I found customizing the Start page icons was very difficult if not impossible and very frustrating.

I bought this based on reviews here. Used it for a bit over a month and all of a sudden got a blue screen and wont power on or charge after that. Since I bought this in Microsoft store took it to the store assuming I can get an exchange since it is just a month old but no luck. Microsoft store does not honor warranties from other companies even though they sell this product in their store. Now I am left with having to pay for shipping this phone to & fro to Florida to get it fixed. Not worth the hassle next time I will buy only products from reputed companies. I will never buy from Microsoft store again as they don't stand behind the products they sell.
Microsoft did not allow me to post their review in Microsoft store. My post was moderated.
Some of the reviews shows that phone is having network problem with 4G and dual sim function. Anybody has bought this phone, please share your feedback.

The Micro SD Card: I use it with a 64 Gb. Micro SD card and it works perfect... so the limit of 32 does not exists. (by now perhaps I have problems in the future but I will come back with the update).
I was concern about this phone, because it was too cheap. But I was surprised, perhaps the worst thing is the Camera. But the rest of the hardware has nothing to envy to Nokia. Speed, Smooth and easy to use. The definition of the screen is amazing, thinking of how much I pay for it... It really worth.
