Best decision in the smartphone category to date for me. After my LG really played with my nerves, this was a much needed change. The WP system is so easy to understand, very customizable and overall beautiful. Live tiles are really special and well thought out. About apps I'll just say this: I would choose quality over quantity any day.
The main apps are there and they are good.
Design is flawless, I really like the black aluminum frame, interchangeable back covers (although they could come in more colors) and the look of the main camera. The latter is just awesome. Maybe 10 megapixels sounds low, but boy oh boy, do they deliver. With combination of Carl Zeiss optics and a very polished camera software the pictures and videos are just superb for the phone its class. Heck, they are even a match for some higher end devices. The secondary camera on the other hand is a letdown, which I can survive, from not beeing much of a selfie person.
The speaker offers a very good sound quality, which could have been even better if it were positioned another way. Battery life is decent, it usually lasts for a day or day and a half, but i got it also up to almost four days sometimes.
All in all it's a great, solid phone when you get a little discount from the original price. I hope it will serve me well for at least two more years.
This LG was my first transition to smartphones. And oh, what a transition it was. The Android system was totally different from classic phones I used before and I had a really hard time getting used to it at first. When I finally mastered it, I was really happy with its features. At the beginning at least.
The phone was quickly outdated, the system specifications couldn't match up with its newer rivals anymore. Still, I kept up with it for four years. The last two years were a real pain in the butt. Its lag got unbearable, camera quality didn't meet my needs anymore, the system was too weak to deal with even some preloaded applications (specially after updates), storage space on the phone was a joke, the screen became very hot if it was used for a longer period of time so it started to sting in the fingers and so on and so on...I would hardly recommend this phone to anyone, seriously, that's how bad it was. The only things doing this phone a favor are its ruggedness and a low selling price.
Just stay away from it.
A classic from Nokia, that could withstand many falls without much damage. It was simple to use and quite good looking for those times. Sadly, there was no camera or bluetooth, which would come handy sometimes. It still works till this day.
A stylish little guy from Panasonic, with great screen and overall build quality. This was my first phone ever and I really liked it. Unfortunately the battery gave up after two years of use and I got a new phone. Regret giving this phone up though, I liked it better than his replacement, the Nokia 6030. It also had a higher sentimental value for me.
