My favorite phone ever
Phone owned for more than a year

It was a awesome phone 10/10 for me. The operating system (UI) was fantastic and different, while offering great camera! The processor was fast and many features that were soon copied by Apple and Samsung. The ambitous and pushed the industry further. Due to not many apps the phone was held back. If WIN10M had the quality apps that Samsung offered the phone would be perfect and best in the market.

Best phone I have ever
Phone owned for less than a year

The only downside is the battery (but I am a "heavy user"). Windows 10 Mobile is very fast and smooth, the apps I use stay in the Windows Store. I have tried many cell phones and the camera is excepcional, even 2 years later of its release date.

Perfect Smartphone
Phone owned for less than 3 months

A very professional smartphone well finished and very fluid and especially very powerful!
The only worry is that it heats up during the games and the battery drops a little faster than usual. But in general it is the perfect smartphone value for money!
