my sister has a windows phone. She loves it, but shes super noob. I had a dell venue pro and didn't like the windows OS.... Could never get used to it... reverted back to android and probably wont switch. However, this is a solid deal if you prefer windows.
Wish there was a nice quality unlocked Android phone.
"nice quality" in the $200 price range is very subjective. If the $299 + tax Nexus 4 really is too much, I might suggest getting a Samsung Galaxy Blaze which is a T-Mobile phone you can buy unlocked on ebay for ~$240. Has similar innards to Samsung Galaxy SII, officially supports Android 4.0 although you can install 4.1 via CM10 custom ROM.
But I agree, pay the extra $70+ to get the Nexus 4 if you can. Only reason to go for the Blaze is to save a bit of money or, like my wife, really wanted a smaller phone.
I'm definitely a big tech nerd, and I have a Lumia 920 and I love it. WP8 is a great operating system. Yes, it may not have some of the main stream apps (Instagram, Temple Run, etc.), but seeing as how I'm a grown adult, those aren't very important to me.
To mimic what someone mentioned earlier, it may not be the best bet for someone that wants to have access to ALL of the apps that their friends have, but for someone who wants to stand out with something different, fun, and original, I think WP8 would be a great way to go.
Although this phone runs 7.8, so it doesn't really apply. As many have mentioned, I would pass on this and get a WP8 device. Even a low end Lumia that runs WP8 would be a better investment, in my opinion.
I was thinking about get a used CL route but searching online found incident where ppl was able to use it for a couple month and their phone stop working. That is due to the carrier blacklist the phone b/c the original owner claim it was stolen after selling their phone, etc. also from my online search, seems like they are doing a national wide blacklisted phone for all the major network. Before national wide blacklist, you could get a blacklisted at&t phone and use it on another gsm network but with the national wide list you cant use it on any US network. Just a word of warning for used CL phone.
Not a big fan of buying a WM7.8 phone, I feel like it isn't main stream enough. Anyone know how the apps are doing? I just looked at their store, I don't think they even have a Facebook app thats published by Facebook.
I would feel limited very quickly, any thoughts?
Last time I check, they still don't have a legit youtube app.
