Nokia really had a great product and they completely abandoned it and left it to die. I had this phone for about 8 days and couldn't get everything I wanted out of it. The main thing that stuck out to me is that this phone fits more into 2008 time, but not 2011-2012 when people are used to eco-systems of Apple, Google and Microsoft. Nokia really doesn't have any apps. That's one of the main cons about this phone. I couldn't find things I used on my older iPhone. Twitter app was there but it didn't work, facebook app was a very old version of facebook. Other apps seemed like they were build by some amateur developer and looked totally ugly.
The great things I found about this phone were:
-battery life is very good
-User Interface is amazing. Simple, elegant and though through.
-great call quality and reception
The bad things:
-although it is AMOLED screen it's really bad resolution, I saw a lot of lines where there were gradients, there were also random colored spots and they looked like if the screen was dirty from the inside the phone
-browser is a joke
-a lot of gimmick and copying from Apple iOS and Android, pretty low for Nokia (even phone packaging is exactly like iPhone box, kind of funny)
-no apps, horrible App Store
-maps also never worked properly and were very choppy, looked like a totally different experience from the rest of phone's UI
-connection issues with social networks
-no future support from Nokia
Overall, the phone could have been amazing and could compete with major phones in 2011-2012, but with lack of development, support from Nokia and interest from consumers, this this is just another geek's toy for a week. I went back to my iPhone.
