Bad: Build quality, battery life, windows
Comment: Do you want a phone rated at less than 2 stars by users?
Despite fewer people choosing BlackBerry, those that have new BlackBerry phones like them. I am so happy I brought in my defective Nokia early enough to trade in for a Z30 which has been very intuitive and made my life and messaging so much easier than the S3 I originally upgraded from.
Give a new BlackBerry a chance, you'll be happy you tried it. Don't like it? Bring it back after a week, as I did with the defective Nokia
Good: Looks like a decent phone on paper
Bad: Poor build quality, Windows Mobile, Windows Mobile, Poor battery life
Comment: I traded this phone in for a BlackBerry Z30 and am so happy I did. Never liked the Nokia/Windows OS sucked. Silly tiles. Battery life sucks. Then in literally broke, after a mere two weeks of emails and video conferencing. The iPhone screen is too small. Chose a BlackBerry and has been a great phone, battery lasts for ever and more intuititive than the Nokia.
If your Nokia breaks early on, return it, as lesser exchange period than other makes which they don't tell you up front. CNET loses credibility for rating this product so much higher than users.
Bad: non removable battery

Bad: Screen resolution
Comment: Fed up with Andrain and IOS.
I have a Lumia 820 similar specs.
WP8 is a fast clear nice looking os.
Battery life is reasonable better than Andrain and ios.
Yes the app store isn't as big but 99% of apps only get used once and then never again.
The major apps are available.
Solid body means drop it and it most probably survive.
And Wp8 is a very good operating system.
Comment: dont like os
