Microsoft should make a mobile that looks like their tablet in design and specs. This Mclaren looks like another hastily assembled product with no attention to details and just throwing in some metal, huge lens and a curved sides.

that big black circle really looks hideous. i don't think it's a necessity. it's their aesthetic choice and it's ugly.

I remember how do many people were disappointed with the GS5 design when the first pics showed up...

Great! But too big, i think it has 6" Display. 4.5" to 6" is a big difference. Hmm... i think xenon flash is stil better than LED or Dual LED Flash :)

What about the specs, I would buy this if the camera is amazing and the specs are monstrous, because WP as a platform doesn't offer me anything exciting.

drop the white frame on the windows phone and i think it looks pretty good compared to the iphone... I'm personally not a fan of the way iphones look... they feel nice to hold... but looks wise, i hate them.

People start reading properly! It is a cameraphone not just a regular smartphone! So stop complaining about the hump, if you don't like it that's your problem! Still the 808 and 1020 are the best cameraphones out there, nodody can deny that. Even the old N8 takes better pictures than some current phones!

Too big, definitely... too thick, probably too heavy and that camera hump is horrible!

For a cameraphone it's reasonable to be big and thick phone , you can't compare a 50 megapixels phone to an 8 megapixels one .
