I hope that Nokia will release a global version of this phone WITH micro SD slot. 1520 is just too big for me but this phone would make me consider jumping the Android ship for Windows Mobile.
It doesn't has expanded memory Card slot and USB on the go support, otherwise mobile is great.
Good design square flat sided just like iphone it can stand alone for to take timer camera. no need extra stand support.
It indeed ticks all the boxes for a modern day flagship smartphone. Except that it is no smartphone. Pathetic to see such a capable and well built hardware limited by running a modified mp3player firmware.
adi, 24 Mar 2014only one valid disadvantage (medicore battery life)? not bad at all! Yeah....no
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2014They put quad core so average people don't think Windows Phone is behind in hardware. Windows ... moreLOL!!!
Or in reality some lag exists in WP just like all technology...
And high end games require more power too. And maybe they plan on adding things....
Of course blind jealous fanboys will just say things like...oh its only for show.
Most of reviewers say that battery life is good.
Of course can't match Lumia 1520.
lol, 25 Mar 2014where are all the nokia fanboys that kept singing that song : we dont need dual core or quad c... moreThey put quad core so average people don't think Windows Phone is behind in hardware. Windows Phone UI is GPU accelerated. It's buttery smooth with 1GB RAM. Scrolling is as smooth as you can get, like 60FPS.
Battery is good for many people. This must have a defective battery.
Text input on Windows Phone is only limited to the default QWERTY keyboard. Why would anyone make such a nice device without giving a consumer basic choice of a keyboard that is like a phone pad with alpha numeric. Deal breaker as not everyone wants to hit tiny buttons.

This is only for the brain-washed customers (=the more on the spec sheet the better).
Unfortunately the sw isn't soo polished (less work for programmers/developer) anymore because the manufacturer just put big chips inside and hope it will work well.
where are all the nokia fanboys that kept singing that song : we dont need dual core or quad core...nokia only need a single core 400 mhz;; hahahaha
This phone not just capture beautiful things this phone capture feelings.
I do not think that the lack of a micro sd card slot is a disadvantage.It has 32 gb,which is enough in my opinion.It is hard nowadays for Nokia to come up with something attractive.We must not forget that the windows os is a pain in the a*s.
After a year with lumia 900 I said I had enough and now I'm glad I got rid of it.I believe it would be a nice techonologic exercise if they will come up with an android version.We shall see.Cheers
Very Sexy phone. Shame its not in the UK. See Nokia this is why your are going down the pan and Rubbish.
"Over the top carrier branding somewhat spoils the design."
LOL Good point.
