Tom, London Basic text and chat user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Nice, light design with a good operating system. The windows phone syncs all your social media profiles into one including email which means you have all of your contacts in one place. You can link someones profiles from Facebook and Twitter (for example) so you don't have a duplicate profile. If you just want a simple phone with a few apps this phone is brilliant!
Bad points:
NOT ENOUGH MEMORY. Although you can add a micro SD card, it does not combine with the phone memory and most apps can't be moved onto the SD card. This means that you are not able to have lots of applications such as Facebook, Skype, Google maps and so on. I don't think the windows store is any good because not many developers want to add their apps to it. Apps like "Snapchat" are not on the store.

Zainul, Business or web user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cheap and cheerful
Looks amazing and feels solidly built - Have been using for over a month and the edges haven't started to wear away as reported by some reviewers.
Bad points:
Only has 512mb RAM - many apps especially games require 1Gb

Paltry storage of 4Gb (out of which ~ 1.7Gb is only available to you when you start the phone for the first time)

I'm not sure if its the particular unit I have but the backlight is very dim when set to auto. If you set it to manual, it is very bright but the battery would inevitably drain more quickly - there is no middle ground. However, this could be a problem with the light sensor on my phone.
