me and my girlfriend both recently gotten a lumia, and we both have grown to love this phone very fast.
the phone itself is beautifull, we have the blue and the pink ones, and they both are eyecatchers, the curved glass works well as a design statement too and the colors on the screen really pop. the little piece of metal around the camera picks up scratches easily, wich sucks, you do get a rubbery case to protect your phone though.
both me and my girlfriend we're actually looking at different phones, i was planning on going for the galaxy nexus and she was going for the iphone, the store suggested otherwise and let us borrow the lumia and a android phone (nexus) for 1 week to try it out and let us decide if we like a windows phone, ios phone (we allready both own a iphone) or an android phone.
it turned out we both really like windows phone mango, it's a simple and stylish system. nokia drive wich comes with the lumia is great too. i personally don't care about the lack of apps, 40.00 is still more then enough and most of the good ones are allready there. the integration of office is great, much better then on android or ios. and the "people" tile system works well.
the camera is ok, not great, like on most phones.
our phones have the update, so we don't have big battery life problems, battery is like the camera, good, but not great.
I didn't think i would prefer the lumia over an iphone, or the new nexus, but i do. give this new nokia and especially windows phone mange a try, you probably won't be disappointed might well be pleasantly surprised!
