Engadget Review

This is an attractive option if you're a fan of Windows Phone and great design. It's far from perfect, though, and Nokia's best is yet to come.

Pros
  • Genius, tactile designMostly excellent build qualityBrings out the best of Windows PhoneAMOLED screen is great for general use
Cons
  • Tethering and other advanced features are missingPhones on other platforms have better cameras and performance
