Let me just start out by saying I'm a very picky guy when it comes to electronics. I research things until I am absolutely sure I want them and then I wait for the "dust" to settle on anything new just as a double check. While I'm not a huge fan of Windows in general - this phone was definitely worth the wait - it ROCKS!
Build quality: solid and smooth. The backing has a matte finish, so your hands won't slip when holding the device (unlike the iPhone 3G/3GS). The weight is just right - not too heavy and not light/cheap feeling. The battery/SIM card compartment door on the back is metal yet thin. It's probably not the thinnest device in the world, but if you want something thinner you're better off with a plastic device. All buttons (including the awesome "real" push Windows home button) click confidently.
Software/OS: First of all, keep in mind that this device (as of 1/24/11) does not have multitasking built in. I'm assuming this will be a software update later on. All finger-swipe actions so far are VERY smooth - no stuttering as found in my previous Android device. The tiles respond extremely quickly and, with the Super AMOLED screen, look like water when they do move. The only issue I have found so far is that if you follow a link to the Windows Marketplace from anywhere except through the "official" app, the app freezes and you have to restart the phone. This issue has been documented and will hopefully be fixed during the next update.Read more ›
I have recieved the phone 3 days ago and I delayed my review until I got to actually experience the phone, and let me tell you, This is the best phone I have had in my entire life. I will divide my review into two sections, Shipping and the actual phone review.
Amazon was great doing the shipping and it was fast, it took almost less thank a day to actually deliver the phone. Although the package containing the phone did not have extra protection inside, but the I guess the phone in it's own package is enough-protected.
One thing I have to mention is that there is a seal at the bottom of the phone package saying "if you recive this seal borken, do not accept the phone", and it was borken, but I guess this was for security purposes and checks.
This phone is just amazing, it is really smooth and fluid. No lacks, no glitches at. The interface is just amazing and really gives you a wonderful experience that you once used to it, can't revert back to an old icon-based phone.
The messeges, emails views are just professional and really makes you want to keep using the phone.
The hardware of the phone is just amazing also, the camera settings are great, which has alot of features not available in othe WP7 phones.
The SAMOLED screen is great too, gives a fresh look to the phone.
When I recieved the phone, it was in English and not french and the keyboard language was both English and Spanish. Plus, the new Firmware was alread pre-installed (F/W Version: 2424.10.11.Read more ›
