Andrew, Singapore Business or web user

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
-Nice looking hardware design
-Intuitive and modern appearance of the user interface
-camera has good optics (but is not easy to use)
Bad points:
-Battery life is so disgracefully poor I have had to stop using the phone. 4 hours life from a full charge with little use, 2 hours if I actually use it. The only way to get enough life from the battery to last 9am-5pm was to disable every single data feed, email, web, RSS and any other smart application and only use it for occasional phone calls.
-Many apps I rely on not available for WP7.5
-Windows Live ID country location cannot be changed, so you may not be able to use the Marketplace to buy anything.
-If you do change your Live ID so you can buy apps, you lose all of your Windows Live history, then you will also lose all of your phone data.
-If you buy your phone in a different country than you live in, Nokia will not honour the warranty unless you fly back to that country for repairs and updates.
-WP7.5 is nowhere near as usable as IOS5. Many crucial information items (eg remaining battery percentage) are hidden under 5 layers of menu.
-Audio quality is very poor and on maximum volume still can hardly hear it. Forget using the media player in the gym, train or the street.
-Speakerphone / Nokia Drive is extremely quiet when on max volume. Even with the car parked, I cannot hear the audio at all.
-have to open a flimsy little flap 3 or 4 times a day to charge the phone. The flap will break off within weeks.
-Nokia Drive does not seem to work without data connection. No speed cameras, traffic updates.
-pointless lock screen needs you to slide it out of the way before you can unlock it.
-Nokia updates are released that fix some of these bugs, but due to the ridiculous Windows Live geo-restrictions, I am unable to download and apply them.
-Internet search is set to Bing! I have never used that and never will. I have to open a browser and then navigate to Google.
-very expensive for such a restricted device
-automated and useless tech support from Nokia and Microsoft, which provides outdated and unhelpful fixes that you have already explained did not address the issue you reported. Ignore official tech support and go to the forums if you want to actually try and fix the problem.
- many many other gripes and complaints that I don't have the inclination to report
