Arrow Nokia Lumia 1520

I've been trying a Windows Phone device for the last few days!



It's not as bad as I thought, but there are a few annoyances that mean I'm not in danger of jumping ship from Android.

One of the biggest issues is still the app store, it's lacking in many ways, very importantly it doesn't appear to have any Google apps in it...

I'll be doing a review in a few days/week. I might review the OS separately to the device itself.

I should thank Clove for the use of this device.

I suppose I should do a mini review of my Zopo ZP990 phablet at some point, since, aside from weak GPS performance and a virgin 3G card that is rather pants (not the phones fault I'm sure) is a cracking unit.
270, 6" screen, quad-core 1.5Ghz, 2Gb RAM, 32Gb ROM, 13&5megapixel cameras, dual sim slots (one full size, one mini) up to 64Gb TF card slot, Android 4.2.1, bluetooth and wifi of course.

I've always been tempted to jump over to a Windows Phone just because the high end lumias do look and feel really good but the bit stopping me is just lack of apps and people showing support for apps.
