Best deal for 2014

Great phone with great hardware like GPS, Bluetooth, Accelerometer, etc... at a great price. The phone is very good looking, slim, very light, comes with windows phone 8.0, but is scheduled for upgrade by Microsoft, to 8.1 this summer. It has many little annoying bugs. I have been able to work around all of them. Mainly the live tiles didn't update properly on some apps like battery app. Using this app allowed me to see the battery drain chart and have estimated the drain to be 20%/hour when using the phone heavily with all it's hardware enabled (GPS, Wifi, BT,...), 4%/hour with all hardware enabled but asleep. The battery life is good if you are not using the phone for more than 2/hours of heavy use per day, which is not so much when you get the phone, but becomes more than enough, after a week of discovery and playing around with it like a kid on Christmas day. Beyond that, you might want to charge it at the end of the day and don't let it fall bellow 30%. Lithium Ions don't like to be fully discharged but once a month at the most. The best practice is to make sure the battery is always charged to 100% before unplugging it from the charger. Leaving it on the charger is not a problem and will not harm the batteries. There is no front facing camera. So if you can live without video chatting, you're good to go. I first asked myself, why would they not include such a cheap hardware and risk alienating people using video chat apps? then I realized, I have only used video chatting a couple of times when it was something new and exciting. Then got board and haven't used it again. If you need video chatting, keep looking. I use Skype for long distance phone calls and that's it. The virtual keyboard is a bit small for my meaty fingers tips, but that's my problem not the phone's. I found the iPhone keyboard small too. Overall, Best phone for the best price on the market today. Even phones costing 3-5 times as this one, don't have it locked down like this little gem. Very impressed with Nokia and it's parent company; Microsoft. Nice job. Can't wait to see what the 8.1 upgrade will bring to the table this summer. Highly recommend this phone to people who can live with it's very limited flaws mentioned above.

Call blocking does not work

You need call blocking. Because Rogers is going to call you 2 or 3 times a day. It's an interesting business model, sell you a pay as you go phone/sevice then call you 2 or 3 times a day and use up your minutes. I've not found out how to get call blocking to work on this phone and I've tried. Otherwise this is great phone, I will keep it but I wont be buying more time from Rogers. 4 star for the phone.

Product vs Price

An excellent phone for the price. Loaded with features compared to phones four times the price. All phones use more power when connected to data. Use your usb connection when you can and you'll be fine and remember to turn off your wifi when your not using it..

Great basic smartphone

This phone is highly intuitive and a great basic smartphone for the money. I found it very easy to setup voice mail, my desktop page, ringtones, etc. The GPS is really great as I do not have a data plan and find it handy to have. The only complaint I have is the battery life is not really great, but for my basic user requirements, it fits the bill perfectly!

It's ok

Phone does it job ok, it's basic smartphone with access to wifi, data apps etc. It's kinda has a cheap feeling and touch screen gets dirty with fingerprints easily. I find the battery drains fast when using data. But it fits my needs ok as I just need phone with little use of data and at a reasonable price.
