new user, 09 Feb 2014I would say win os is half baked.long way to go. Hardware wise phone is good. There r live til... moreme too had experience such email attachent no supported but when when I opened it, just pure windows office..why i can't open it with my windows phone???
Bought this phone 2 weeks back. I like the phone built quality and design a lot. Internet works well including wifi/wlan and it's really fast. Like all the feature with easy navigation with good battery life. Music play smooth. Not major lag felt while launching apps. Call quality is good and easy to handle. So pretty much happier this side..
Games runs smooth but temple run crashes usually after playing for 15-20 mins.. not sure why. couldn't figured out yet.
Phone gets warm nearby camera area when play games for 20 mins or more.
not major drawback other than mentioned above, i do see as of now.
