This is a totally great phone for a great price, and Windows 10 is silky smooth and very much alike its big brother on the desktop and tablet. Great camera that I use most days at home and at work. Lots of storage with a micro SD card. If I dropped this phone today, I would either buy another one, or go to the 650 model as the next one up.
Someone mentioned battery life. I easily get a day and have plenty to spare when I re-charge at night.

Very, very poor battery life! Charger incredible late! Rapid temperature.
Already after one month had it in workshop ... Cheap phone -> bad quality.
In addition, the app market extremely small.
Bought this hook-Law based on absolute maximum bang per buck under div blah reviews here. Her first "smartphone" and yes guess who gets supporta when the bulls. A difficult equation ... especially as I also have zero experience of Windows Phone.
But I thought what the hell. Just to test specifically for 1190 bucks they sold for recently. Picked up an orange peel to her little cocky .. :)
Performance was found to be superior when I fiddled with her little nap Damn everything runs without lag. Complaints have been made that there is so much apps but well ...?
Most of what you might like to have available. All that the email accounts you may want to relax. Fb for those who want to run it, browsers the div taste, BankID, Swish ... what lacks of it to be honest. Even Candy Crush there if you like that stuff ... and some other games stuff. Everything is going like a train, without lag.
In fact, I was so impressed by this handset so I bought one for myself. However in black ... wimp that I am :)
So long with the tired old superlaggig Android with a few years old, the Sony Xperia S that should be retired before last year but can not bother me unnecessarily. The difference is so great that it is ridiculous to even try to compare. I just sit here and play with the new handset with a broad smile ... oh how neat and slick it can be. Installed Lync - "Skype for Business" - recently and yes it is flowing. Crazy great battery life. Bluetooth works perfectly to stuff all over the shack, super stable and quality that I've never seen / heard before. Wifi super stable, 4G LTE with unbelievable speeds. The camera of 8 MP ok image quality for everything I use a camera phone to.
Can say that it was a long time since I felt so completely satisfied ... and genuinely happy. Over a simple tusenkronorsgrunka. All that Android Grejs on launchers, etc ... irrelevant. Needed nothing like that. Everything feels more or less intuitively right out of the box.
Sorry if I sound like a fanboy here but sometimes you just kind of taken by surprise. I thought I hated Windows, OSX til migrated long ago ... but the fun that you can still get a little happy fresh stuff that are really well thought out. Here, they have certainly succeeded, I think. Quite modest hardware, but it is used in a great way, superfine battery and fluid performance what more could you ask for.
Must say I run the OS version that shipped with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2. works so well that I will wait to upgrade to Windows 10th
Forgot a few things that influenced my song ... 1) user-replaceable battery (a hefty 2500 mAh plate in the original), 2) that you can print in any mikroSDXC memory ... I found some good 64GB ScanDisk Ultra cat 10 for about 170 bucks apiece, which of course worked well in my in-laws and mother lurks. 3) That you can download maps of anywhere in the world for the navigation function, only to refuel down no additional charge. So you avoid traffic charges when running the navigator abroad.
4) ... the battery life. Sorry that I nag about it again. Just so surprised by what I never thought I would see in reality. Perhaps my old Xperia just lousy at that point ... but oh what a difference. We're talking about a number of days without charge and it was a while ago for those who have been with the GSM time.
Additional 2016-05-27 (hard to post data on the past but it was kind of last winter I got the phone).
Worked very well for my needs. Extremely good battery life, usually three to five days without further notice. Syncs seamlessly to my organization's Exchange e-mail server, all meeting requests, etc. lands straight into the calendar with all the details available completely automagically. Tex link to "Skype for Business" (former Lync), just click on the link on the calendar and it connects directly to the meeting.
Super nice and fast connectivity out of various accessories such as a Jabra Bluetooth headset I like to run the phone conversations, skype, etc. Just plug in and it works immediately. Similarly, in the car, handsfree connected directly and without action on my part. Hotspot stuff etc works perfectly. Super sound when talking to people regardless of channel.
This is without doubt the best and most user-friendly handset I have ever had. Small sad that "market share" for the OS now crawling under one percent, almost incomprehensible about it is that you need really good and reliable gadgets in the job that just should work straight off without having to download and configure various specials. Here everything works right, built and built to automatically connect itself to all the contacts you have. Contact management is absolutely superb because everything is linked together more or less automatically, Facebook and whatever it is for the respective contact all integrated.
This is a mobile that really good enough.
Came from a Sony Xperia V that should have been replaced a long time ago, but because of the shortcoming of measures was it in overtime.
Which meant that switched to Windows was easy, is that the time of androids app updates started and become incredibly annoying long.
The problem is almost completely absent in this.
Menus here works silky and quickly.
Battery life is absolutely super.
Camera is quite ok for the price and color and sharpness of images is just as good as Sony's.
Screen is very good.
It is very smooth, so a shell is and recommend.
The feeling of cheap model is completely absent.
Must just mention Here Drive + which is a bundled GPS software for car with its downloadable land map makes it free and use abroad (and at home).
My next mobile becomes a waterproof Lumia.
Then the 10 stars appear.
I'm just waiting ........
Updated: Windows 10 is installed and the phone is thus even better.
Is very pleased with the camera that takes great pictures and has many settings in the app.
