The only reason to get this phone is if you can get it cheap, say £25 or less, and you just want to make calls and texts in a more convenient fashion than a push button phone or you want to Skype. For anything else I'd say get a cheap Android instead. It's definitely not worth the £55-£80 price tag any more. I was given it, to mess around with, about a year ago, by someone who was unhappy with it.
Its signal reception is one of the worst I've experienced. If you have poor coverage then you would be gambling with getting a continuous signal. Running Windows 10 it lags just navigating around the settings menus -- by up to a few seconds at times.
The screen is very small and the camera takes terrible quality pictures. The Microsoft Edge browser is not nice and you even have to be logged in to Cortana, with a Microsoft account, just to do things like set 'quiet hours' (get the phone to shut off at night)!
Pretty much every app I've tried from the Windows Store has been pretty meh. They're all text menus and side swipe pages. But I suppose this gripe is applicable to all Windows phones and is, somewhat, a matter of taste.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2016Can windows 10 support android apps
Microsoft originally planned on providing some tools which would have been targeted at app developers, with the intention of making it easier for them to port their existing Android apps to run on Windows 10. That project, codenamed Astoria, was never intended to be targeted at end-users. It has since been cancelled.
They are still actively pursuing a parallel project, "Windows Bridge for iOS" intended to make it easier for developers to port their iOS apps to Windows 10. Again, it isn't targeted at end-users, and it will still be up to app developers to decide if they want to use this technology to bring their iOS apps over to Windows 10.

mobilepgk, 26 May 2016hi guys - want to know if a swipe like keyboard available on this phone. - and if windows 10... moreOverall the windows 10 runs perfectly except a few once in a while lags encountered when pressing capacitive buttons. Generally, transitions and swiping does not make it slow. Apps in windows store are buggy and often restart or shutdown. Keeping in view price and OS experience I can safely mark it 8/10. Overall it is good and capable handset for secondary usage.
