Bought this phone for approx 200Â€ back in 2015 in Germany and for first 9 months I was really pleased with it. At the time I was looking for a phone with a large screen size so I can review Excel files and occasionally read a book. I was going for Samsung Note 4 but when I looked at this I realized that it can suite me fine for half a price of Samsung Note4.
Come spring of 2016, the update for Widows 10 came out and with it a lot of problems. Updates were coming out once or twice a month and I had no way of stopping it. With nearly every update I had to do a factory reset (which brings Windows 10 and not old Windows 8) in order for phone to work as intended. After a year of torture with updates finally the phone started working as the day I bought it.
Lack of apps was something I knew before I bought the phone so this was not an issue for me. I tend to use the phone for communication (calls, messages, WatsApp, Skype, Viber but no Facebook), as a music player, reviewing office documents (MS Office) and reading books. I don't play games and the phone provided comfortable experience for me. 1GB of ram seems to be fine on Widows OS. One thing I really was annoyed with is that there is no way for you to protect your files due to the way the OS is set up.
I never used any protection for the phone and I've dropped it countless times with just a few scratches on the plastic back cover. Until couple of days ago when I dropped it just the right way and glass shattered. With repair costing of approx 80Â€ I don't think I'll be repairing it and with a great range of Android phones within the same price range for a new phone, I don't think I'll be be buying a Windows phone again.
you guys whin so much abt windows phone yet windows os is the most stable,secure and most popular worldwide.microsoft hardwares are the most resilient on phones,the screen technology the best.app store,how many apps do you need in your phone?100? because that will make your phone an apps store itself.give microsoft phones a break.those who buy them have solid reasons for doing so despite your discouraging efforts that you have been running for years.windows phone are still the best..that is why business men(those who really value money unlike you) still go for them.
