I bought this phone a secondary phone for a long business trip, where I needed dual SIM to avoid roaming data charges and as I'm not in favor of mid range Androids (usually perform very badly, I've been an iPhone user for a few years and used to snappy performance).
I must say I was very impressed and rather surprised. For the very competitive price I paid (160$ discounted price) I got a phone with a clear big screen, excellent performance, and amazing battery life .. I've been using it as my daily driver now for almost a month : the battery stays at least 1.5-2 days with heavy usage of emails, video calls to home country, and local calls, with mixed browsing and whatsapp. The native email client is excellent and at the same level with iPhone and Android, Excellent Office package, performance is amazing with no hanging issues, it was very easy to import my data by adding my google and iCloud accounts in Native windows OS -no third party apps used, clear black display is excellent, and sound quality is very good.
The things I didn't like were : very poor apps, even when you're lucky enough to find the app in the Windows store it's nothing compared to the similar app in iPhone or Android. I can see Microsoft are trying to make some effort in that area but unfortunately it's still the weakest point. Some Apps like Facebook does not refresh in properly, also some live tiles does not refresh as regular as they should be, especially the ones for news .. also Flipbaord tile does is not live! .. Dual SIM support is very good but it lacks some silly basic features like assigning a different ring tone to each line! .. the phone can be a bit bulky and could have been thinner but it's however light in weight. The black option mat finish looks cheap, colored back covers like white, blue, and orange looks much better in material quality -I got the white one trying to opt to a more neutral option for business.
I also tried to download the latest beta version of Windows 10 out of curiosity and surprisingly I was very disappointed : not only that it had lots of crashing apps and dead buttons that does not function properly -after all it's a beta version.. but it also has an identity issue compared to Windows 8.1 !! .. Windows 8.1 is all "Windows" .. it has it's own identity with squares and tiles and basic colors finish. It does not try to imitate any other OS (which is something I hated in iOS for example when they started copying Android since iOS 7 onwards) .. unfortunately Windows 10 will actually remind you of Android with some rounded designs here and there, and over loaded toggles, etc .. Things I would not prefer to see in the final version of Windows 10 .. imitation was never a key to success, be unique in your own way.
In summary : I enjoyed my windows experience, and I don't regret buying it and will keep using is a secondary phone and main while travelling.
I hope someone would find this feedback useful or at least interesting.

Those who fade up with Android laginess and battery draining problem and iPhone is too costly.The best option to buy Lumia 640 or 640 XL. It's a value for the money package.Best phone at very resonanable price range.

Already the market share have gone down from 3% to 1.7%. Yah..Microsoft mobiles are really awesome. The delay in releasing windows 10 will lead them to diminish from mobile market very soon. Heard that there will be more delay for the project astoria to come into existence. I can bet..i bet..windows 10 as an independent OS wont be able to hold them up unless they tie up with android/iOS apps.
In Windows phone sd card support is brilliant on other hand In Android phone sd card is just pathetic there are many restrictions in Android phone.
