I noticed this phone is 299$ at MS store. Seems good offer for my upgrading after 1520 and 950xl. At beginning it costed 799$ which was way too much.
Unfortunatelly, MS never will never teach that hardware should be better then comparable Androids, should cost 20% less and operating system should be updated and upgraded constantly. But nothing from all that so there they got market share as it is. As somebody said, I wish them good luck with Andromeda OS (interestanding name, very similar to main competitor), but if they continue working at same way, that is wasting of resources and money.
Max, 27 Feb 2018Well Sharp phones have displays comparable and some even better than Super-AMOLED called IZGO ... moreactually, meizu used that panels on few models too. on m2 note it was way too power hungry but clear,cheap, and easy to repair , and its not IZGO it is IGZO. but in comparison to S-AMOLED or P-OLED difference is very noticeable and LED is clear winner to a naked eye , but in terms of costs and faulty screens (lines,burn-ins,heat-resistence,colorsplash) LED technology just sucks.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2018Hello readers, I'm an Indian and I have well defined strategies to bring back Windows 10 Mobi... moreHello readers, in my previous message, I said that I
read about articles which say Windows 10 mobile
has ended. But, it is coming back to life in the form
of Andromeda OS. Good Luck Microsoft.
Hello readers, I'm an Indian and I have well defined strategies to bring back Windows 10 Mobile effectively. The main plus point of Windows 10 is that it is a closed ecosystem. May I know, is there anyone who would appreciate Windows 10 mobile back. Moreover, please do say about whether Microsoft would give me an opportunity to hit. I am into this just after reading many articles saying Windows 10 mobile has ended. Please do reply.
anonymous, 23 Feb 2018non of the brands compete with Samsung on display matters...Well Sharp phones have displays comparable and some even better than Super-AMOLED called IZGO display. Their color reproduction is just excellent. Too bad they sell them only in Japan.
on today (Febraury 24, 2018) I challenge to this phone with my old LG G2 3g phone.....third class features on high price...what is the use of this?
$799 for this phone, thanks but I can live without NFC, QHD display and all those military grade durability. I think the Alcatel Idol 4S Windows would be a better bet for me especially now when Microsoft has slashed its price to mere $100. As for the desktop kit I can,always buy the Microsoft HD500 dock, keyboard and mouse separately.
Worst phone ever had.
Very slow when running 3 or 4 appa simultaneously.
Can't find any good office package . Only can use Office 365 and need to buy it.
Stock browser is shit. Take ages to load web pages.And most of the web sites are not supported.
Filling web applications are very hard. Take long time .due to lag.
Ever I didn't have any problem with Bluetooth with any phone.
The worst BT connection in this phone . It not supported most of the device. Even Didn't work with my 2015 prius. Frequents lose communication between every 10-15 seconds.
Most of the windows apps are not properly worked with Elite x3
Battery pretty good stay whole day .
Sound quality nice.
Canara is average
Maheshchennai, 18 Nov 2017Can anyone say me about the camera picture quality ? Lumia phones pictures are little yellowis... moreThe camera seems to be marginally better than my 1520, but its not on par with new apple or galaxy, its clear and colors look good, but the zoom algorithm is definitely behind the big names.
Can anyone say me about the camera picture quality ? Lumia phones pictures are little yellowish, this to a Windows phone, that's why the doubt , please someone reply me who have used this phone
Well I went for almost same set up as yours after buying my Alcatel Idol 4S Windows, the only difference is than I went for Logitech K830 Illuminated Keyboard which cost me $62 so I ended up spending $321 but I can use the keyboard in dark too, still cheaper than HP Elite x3 though.
- Since latest Update is WP10 very stable, no crashes anymore.
- Still one of the bigest and finest Displays out there.
- Probably the best speakers ever built in a Smartphone.
- Specs are still comparable with the newer Android flagships.
- Native Apps are in excellent condition and you can still find many very good 3rd party Apps.
- Continuum is for simple tasks very convenient.
- You can still find couple of big Manifacturers of Hardware and accessories supporting the platform....
Rumors have it that HP will soon stop the production and that MS will support WP10 with no more major upgrades until 2020... which is probably not all that tragic for a smartphone as long as the 3rd Party Apps stay in good condition...
There is still hope that MS will come with full Windows on ARM, on a Smartphone/ Phablet device until then!

ObiOne, 16 Sep 2017Guys, you are like everyone else.
Read specs and usability before purchasing product.
I hav... moreWell I went for the Alcatel Idol 4S Windows from Microsoft Store for just $199, bought the Microsoft HD 500 Display dock for $60 and Microsoft All In One Wireless keyboard with built in trackpad for $48, so for just $307 I can do all the things that this phone can do and yeah Alcatel Idol 4S Windows looks way better than this utilitarian device.
So I think this device is just overpriced.
