Comment:
So the camera on this phone outpaces any other camera phone and will make you forget all about your point-and-shoot camera. I am a novice but I have learned about some great capabilities that make me feel like a real photographer. Easy to use with a dedicated camera hardware button. Hold the button down and the phone launches the camera app even if it is locked.<br /><br />There are a lot of other great features that you don't hear from reviewers. For example:<br /><br />Nokia's excellent HERE services. HERE Drive+ allows you to download maps so you can still get directions even if you have no data connection available.<br /><br />Excellent audio recording from the Hi-Def microphones. If you attend concerts and like recording the show, the audio quality is superb and the video allows you to zoom in and out on the fly.<br /><br />Glance mode. The display can use a small amount of power to display the time and other notifications when the screen would otherwise be off. The lock screen can show even more details, but I find it very helpful to glance at the screen to see if I have any notifications without having to access the lock screen or even unlock the phone. Glance can be: Always On, Always Off, on for an Interval after locking, or Peek mode where you wave your hand over the screen or pick it up to turn on Glance.<br /><br />If you are a music fan, you have Xbox Music which is hugely underrated, Nokia MixRadio which is great for creating custom mixs, and one year of free Pandora.<br /><br />I bought the wireless charging shell and leave it attached virtually all the time. It is a thin shell that allows me to use Nokia's wireless charging plates. I keep one next to my bed and set the phone on it when I go to bed. I never have to worry about attaching a cable. Apple touts their new connector and how it is reversible so you can connect easily. Nothing is easier than no cables though.<br /><br />I got the Camera Grip for free when I bought my phone. I use this when I go on trips and expect to take lots of photos. It attaches to the phone and gives a grip-able shape just like a point and shoot. Plus it includes its own battery to recharge the phone while it is attached. Love that!<br /><br />Microsoft Account/SkyDrive/Xbox Live. One of the things that always bugged me about previous phones was having to attach it to my computer to synch. I can't recall when I last connected my phone to my computer. No need. Photos synch automatically. I create a playlist on my laptop and it is automatically available on my phone.<br /><br />Office integration. While I don't do a lot of editing of Office documents on my phone I do use that feature occasionally. But I LOVE OneNote and I use it extensively.

Comment:
I also bought the freelancer. I video recorded nearly every song at a concert. After two hours, after the concert ended I still had a little charge left. Amazing. The video and the sound quality are phenomenal. I could zoom in and capture really great close up videos. I am super satisfied with this little amazing phone.
