Commodore 64 of phones

After 6 months of use my opinion is that Microsoft should be paing me to use this phone. It crashes or is unresponsive at least once a day. It is slow .... I mean sometimes by the time it gets around to doing something my clothes have gone out of style. I can only make a phone call using a headset since thespeaker and micorphone have quit working. Now I have to find out how to get it fixed since Future Shop does not fix phones. If you opt for this phone expect both software and harware issues.

great value

Great value. The maps/drive feature is amazing, you can download the maps so no data required when away from wifi. If you just need a great smartphone and are not worried about prestige, this is a great option.

Tremendous value!

You can't go wrong, even if you just use it as a media player or a second phone. Works well for podcasts and app playback. The screen is mediocre but for [price]. Turn by turn navigation by Nokia is really awesome as well. You don't even need to activate the PAYGO for the GPS to work! I am using the public dev preview of Windows Phone 8.1! Lots of goodness built-in to this emerging platform.

Nokia not Rogers for Waranty

I'm happy with this phone and bought 2 for me and my son. 2 months after 1 has a defective power button switch and I brought it to Rogers Store for warranty repair. And after more than 2 weeks I was told they cannot fix it because it's prepaid..unbelievable!.

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.
