Love It

This is my 3rd Windows Phone, but my first Windows 10 Mobile device. Although the Nokia Win8's had their own awesome differentiation (people hub, scout etc), this phone really puts the OS over the top. It is a hero device for sure. The screen and the dual-speakers make this phone perfect for media consumption. Also, I use the continuum feature just about every day; No other OS can do that like a Windows Mobile. The only issue is the glass back is.. well.. glass. I broke it fairly easily and had some difficulty getting it fixed, but I finally found someone who could do it.

only real windows phone flagship ever

Everything about the phone beats about every other but equal to high end iphones. One downside is the front panel and the camera lens can break a little easier then ion glass that apple uses, hopefully the idol 5s will get Windows with a smaller camera hump. The dual speakers are hands down the best in any phone ever.

Great Windows Phone

I've had this phone for almost 5 months, and it's by far the best Windows Phone I've had yet. I had the HTC M8 and I thought it was great. So I was a little surprised that the IDOL 4S out performed it. It's powerful, very snappy, boots up quick. Camer takes really nice pics, the video is also very nice unless you use anything over 1080p. It kind sketches out.

Great Windows Phone!

Great value for such an awesome phone! I love the OS so much more that Android or iOS. I don't get the problems I had on the latter such as constant need to reboot, slow downs, etc...Windows Mobile works great and it remains fluid and quick! Cortana is the best assistant hands down and I use her all the time especially when driving. The integration between your car's bluetooth and Cortana is superb! NFC and OIS for the camera is the only thing that is missing from it and maybe a 4k display (the current full HD display is definitely no slouch). The VR package is very basic and entry level but will give you a few hours of fun.

My 1st Windows Phone!

Now that I have a Windows phone and lovin' it, I'm very concerned that Microsoft is phasing it out since all the reports are negative. Yes, I get it, with less than 1% market share it's impossible to attract developers. The Idol 4S so far has been a much better experience than all the previous buggy Galaxy phones I've owned. Heck, the last two galaxies I owned, I had to root them to get rid of all the crapware that was draining the battery and making the phones almost unusable. Oh, and then the Android updates that mess everything up with little benefit. Menus always changing, constant app updates, errors resulting in a burning hot phone in my pocket and charging by lunch time. With my Idol 4s, I only have to reboot every 5 days or so due to misc. issues that disappear after reboot. My battery lasts a full day with heavy use or almost two days with light use. My phone is never burning in my pocket and the OS is silky smooth and super efficient. With my droids, I was always fiddling trying to get the home screens just right, fixing issues after updates, dealing with misc. errors, lagging etc. My Windows 10 phone just works with minimal fuss. I actually kind of like the minimalistic app situation since I find myself using mobile websites on Edge browser more and more. This saves space, reduces processor load (less crapware running in back ground spying on me) and simplifies the experience. Darn it MS, don't give up on Windows Phone!!

Best Windows Phone I have ever used.

I was previously using a Lumia 640, and upgrading to the IDOL 4S really showed me how amazing Windows 10 Mobile can be on a modern device. This is a great device depending on your use case.

Great Buy

I didn't know what to expect with this purchase, but within minutes I knew this was a good buy for me. Same lay out as the Lumia, accept the pesky camera button in the middle of the phone when you take a picture, not a good design. This phone is slippery, so get a cover right away to avoid dropping. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.

Microsoft does not guarantee the performance of phones. Please check with your carrier of choice for phone compatibility. Actual data speeds will vary. Check with your network operator for details.
