I probably would have got a windows before now but declined because
(1) Home screen ahs tiles you cant get rid of or move so you can just have a nice pic
(2) No T9 Phone keyboard options for messaging only Qwerty
Heard there is a Surface phone coming... hope it got all the features, including micro SD card slot, removable battery, stylus pen, Type C connector, with powerful performance and more supported apps Android and iOS have, etc. Just like after LG G4 then the V10 that make us excited!
I'm still using the Note 3, don't want to buy a new phone with less features, if ready not available, may consider a second Note 3 (cheap) or Note 4...
kidrock10, 01 Oct 2015Why are you people so against this phone? He is not looking bad.That is just a matter of a taste. because this phone looks horrible for a high end phone. MS the king of bezels!
AnonD-446760, 01 Oct 2015Nice phone as I know it's almost old Nokia style for those who don't know about Nokia historynot even close to nokia. just check them out
I have been an Android user for years. I am tired of having to buy another phone to upgrade to the latest version with a new candy name. When I do serious work I use my Windows computer. Now I can have a phone that I can do something else without having to use a third party app. I can do everything I want on a computer without apps. If you need it to play games continue to use candy named firmware. The only problem I have is that I have been on CDMA since 2001 and will change carriers if I have to.
Design looks ugly to me....its a old crappy design do some work on design....Microsoft...!!!
Victor, 01 Oct 2015This is one disgusting phone...
Why should I buy this and not the lumia 640???Maybe for the newer and more powerful SoC? 3GB of RAM? 20MP OIS camera? For the 1440 x 2560 screen resolution? The 2TB micro SD support? Qi Wireless charge?
Also you will find Continuum and Iris Scanner.
I doubt you could possibly find those features in the 640.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2015I really hope this is not the final design, it just looks soo plain and boring. I dont know ho... moredude , I also personally dont like windows phones but wnat to tell u that every phone company has their own UI, samsung has touch wiz,lenovo has vibe etc and they wont ever change except some cosmetic change.Microsoft UI is one of the beartiful interface,where tilesare highly customisable for what u want in the shortcut.
Nice phone as I know it's almost old Nokia style for those who don't know about Nokia history

Guerilla marketing huh? Strange, I always thought Microsoft's marketing department was run by chimps.
We knew there would be a few...
For those who are more-affected by looks than usefulness -- I suggest the Prada version of an Etch-A-Sketch. Remember to accessorize with the rhinestone wrist strap & dog collar!
If this is how Microsoft wishes to go forward with their designs for the flagships, they are completely on the wrong track. A sophisticated and a design like the work of art of the Lumia 930 Or the Simple youth's eye catching design of the Lumia 830 would have been a great way to kickoff their new flagship. And being a big Lumia fan, I'm very disappointed.
