Memory card Many phones have slots that accept memory cards, typically microSD, to expand storage capacity by as much as 64GB. The removable cards can also serve as an easy way to shuttle files between your phone and other devices--provided that the phone's maker didn't bury the card slot behind the battery cover.
Touch screen Full touch-sensitive displays respond to light contact with a stylus, finger, or both. They provide an alternate, and sometimes more direct, method to input data and launch phone features and controls. But they often require two hands to operate, and they smudge more frequently than their non-touch counterparts.
QWERTY keyboard Keyboards make composing and editing text and e-mail messages much easier than a keypad does. Some phones have keyboards that try to save space by having some letters, numbers, and symbols share a key. Those "condensed" keyboards, though still more convenient than a keypad, are not quite as easy to handle as full QWERTY keyboards.
Document editing All smart phones, and some conventional cell phones, allow you to review documents. Some models add the convenience of creating, deleting, and editing them out of the box.
Music player Indicates the phone has a built-in MP3 player. Most players have full capabilities, allowing you to sort or view tracks according to genre, album or artist, playlists, etc. They also typically have more than one playback option, such as repeat and shuffle. The small number of phones that lack these convenient features are rather cumbersome to use.
Voice command This feature allows you dial numbers from your phone book by speaking the name, without the usual training. You can also dial numbers by pronouncing the digits.
GPS navigation All phones have some type of location-based technology to help emergency responders find you when you dial 911. Many phones support GPS Navigation, services which integrate GPS with maps and search engines to give you real-time, spoken, turn-by-turn directions to an entered address, or to help you find nearby businesses by name or category, such as Joe's Pizzeria or hospitals. We indicate which phones have GPS navigation capability as reported by the carrier and manufacturer. Some phones lack automatic rerouting, spoken turn-by-turn directions, and other advanced capabilities, which limit their usefulness while driving. We don't consider obscure third-party applications or hardware attachments.
4G broadband data Indicates which models are considered "4G" based on the definitions from the carriers. Check with your carrier to see which broadband data networks are available in your area.
I dropped and damaged my Apple iPhone5 and it would have cost a fortune to replace or repair it. My contract still had slightly under a year remaining. This phone is nice! Despite what CS reports, I am able to use voice commands via my Plantronics Voyager for both phone calling/answering as well as text sending/receiving. The display is much nicer than the iPhone5. I couldn't see spending an additional $400 for another iPhone when this one cost almost nothing with a renewed contract. The wireless charger is very convenient. Just set the phone on the charging pad every evening when you get home and you will have a fully charged battery in well under an hour.

DISAPPOINTING! It's a Microsoft product with the Nokia name. It fails to compare to the superior straight forward yet sophisticated formatting and functioning of the Nokia Symbian OS, which is ideal for professional usage; i.e. the Nokia E90.<br /><br />Microsoft becoming a newbie in the cellphone industry should have allowed all the features of the Nokia's Symbian to remain fundamental then expand via incorporating it's features as opposed to abandonment. <br /><br />I trusted Nokia, but obviously this was proved to their official departure out of the business. Using Windows OS with my computers has been satisfying, which is why I sought a Windows phone; of course Nokia exclusively the brand of preference.<br /><br />I owned my phone for less than 8 months and no I can't to go Android in a few weeks.<br /><br />Finally, Microsoft has an overwhelming inefficient apps availability as compared to iPhone and Android.<br /><br />Apparently, app developers have little faith in Microsoft, thus most don't include in their development.<br /><br />Not only would I not recommend this phone to a friend, I dear not recommend it to an enemy.<br /><br />FINANCIAL LOSS...

Great battery life
This has been the best phone I have ever owned, and I have had a smartphone since 2004. Thanks to the operating system it is faster than most quad core phones even though it has a dual core processor. The screen is amazing, and the camera takes great pictures, especially in low light. I only use my real camera when I need to be able to zoom in (something that is not a problem for this phone's successor, the 1020; but I digress). The live tiles keep you updated to everything that is important to you at a glance, and it is solid. True, it may be one or two ounces heavier than some phones, but I have dropped mine without a case from 5 feet onto cement and nothing happened. Unless you are heavily invested in the iOS or Android ecosystem this is one of the best phones you can buy.
