    Overall: I wanted to move out of Android for a while and this was a good choice. I read the reviews on Lumia series, went to a store and bought one immediately. nPros:n1) Touchscreen is awesome, one of the compelling reason for moving to Lumia. Display is pretty sharpn2) WiFi downloads are fast, very rarely had heating issue (once out of 7 days usage)n3) Camera (both front and main) are pretty good. Front one is 5 megapixels..n4) Battery life is good (I am an average user)n5) Most of the required applications are available in the Microsoft storen6) Tiles looks cool, able to adjust/changing them is interestingn7) Sleek design and pretty handy. Sturdy build quality which you can experience from the time you lay your hands on it.n8) Windows 10 update ready nnCons:n1) No notification light ! No glance screen on this model either :(n2) No Mozilla Firefox support for Windows yet, need to get happy with IE or UC browser.n3) Standard apps (like Whatsapp) updates are coming late for Windowsn4) No data cable (which feels cheap). Headphones quality needs to be improved. n5) Seeing a minor lag/freeze after disconnecting every call. This needs to be fixed.nnOverall: Satisfied with the product. Best Lumia budget phone with good performance.
