Re: Almost perfect
Your post explains a lot, I sell phones and always have repeat customers as I always manage to get people the phone that works best for them, and can you guess what this is based on? Yep that's right, the OS. I find it fascinating that someone who helped create a phone OS would believe the consumer has no interest in it, but i fully understand where you're coming from as I didn't have a single customer come in and say any positive words about Symbian, ever. I hate to say it but it was about time symbian was closed it was hugely flawed and un-intuitive and with staff with an attitude like yours it is no wonder.
Personally I thought the review was spot on going by my experience with the rest of the lumia range and this would undoubtedly become my 'go-to' first recommendation to anyone new to smartphones who wanted a fairly desirable bit of kit.
and just fyi to break it down into stereo-typical groups of who gets along with what OS
iOS - People already in the apple ecsystem
Android - chavs, geeks, kids
Win Pho - People new to smartphones, the elderly, professionals with cool jobs (designers, engineers)
Blackberry (pre 10) - Dumb "business women", people afraid to move away from BB, 13 year old girls, certain racial groups
symbian - builders "gimme your cheapest nokia, I'll break it next week"
Can be had much much cheaper...
Alternatively you can find this phone with double the minutes and triple the data for £17.88 a month with line rental redemption, even without the hassle of the redemption it's only £26 a month and on a network that's not a complete travesty.
