I'm struck by how smoothly a $149 phone runs. And how long it lasts. And the OS is *stunning*. People who don't like it are lame.
Sure the 521 has some fine details that could be improved, but when I think of these things, I have to keep it in perspective. It's a $149 phone, not a $500 phone.
At $500, the Lumia 920 is amazing. But it's $350 more. Seriously... if the 521 gets smashed or I leave it in a cab, I won't cry about it. My Galaxy Nexus, the Z10 I had, or if I had gotten a 920 or a 8X and had lost one of those, I'd cry.
Those shortcomings you speak of are Microsoft, not the OS itself. Nokia is definitely showing why they were the top dog for so long.
