After using WIndows Phone 7, 7.5 for 2 years, I cannot imagine ever going back to iOS or Android. I just find the OS to be a nice breath of fresh air in getting away with the small icons on bland desktop like backgrounds. Can there be improvements? Of course. But for me this is the BEST phone OS out there.

This phone has given me a great experience and i love it too bits. I worked in a phone store and didnt find one phone i would want to replace this phone with. The app store is lacking, but i dont mind. Its easy to use, fun to use, and like nothing else ive seen or used, its thinking is so far outside the box it makes it work, love it.

It's the best mobile OS ever made. It's got all the usefullness and simplicity of a feature phone yet is a great smartphone when you need it to be. It's a simply powerful OS; fresh and easy to use with the best expereience you'll have on a mobile OS.

A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - Engadget
