The prettiest phone on the market imo. Really nice to hold in the hand too.

The screen appears to lag quite badly in its touch response and it's not AMOLED, so it can't do proper black. This is actually quite important for the default UI which relies to much on black. I've given up and gone for the light theme.

The transition animations stutter quite a lot although the overall performance is OK. I'm not a fan of the cameras but they're OK too. The power button takes some getting used to (finding it with your finger isn't easy) and it isn't a patch on Nokia's side mounted button.

The battery, surprisingly, is actually really good. You can get almost 3 days with light use! Lasts a full day with really heavy use.

Overall, it's OK but even a cheap Nokia shows WP in a better light.
