    This is why people shouldn't put so much stake into someone else's opinion and try it for yourself, especially with so many mixed reviews

    I haven't read the author's previous review, but I don't like his review style. It's flawed. He thinks STATS are what makes a phone good, not what the end user sees. So the phone runs at 1.4ghz and the screen resolution is 800x480. Does the general user care about these stats? No. They're going to care about battery life, screen appearance and phone performance. Now if the phone ran slow because of an outdated processor that'd be another story. But Windows Phone flies on this hardware.

    The user actually only cares if it will run the APPS that their friends phones run. It could be a shiny turd and as long as it runs Pandora, Instagram, etc. it's an number one seller. Thanks Apple/Google for turning our phones into app jukeboxes. You could stick iOS and Android on WP7 hardware and the OS would run without issue. However, all those apps won't.

    Most, if not all, of the battery issues stem from all the crap people run on these phones, see above. Do you really need LTE to make calls? Nope. You need it to run a lot of the apps you can't live without.
