Looks a great phone but personally I think the Nokia 920 is the better phone.

Shame it is Samsung which means it will be made of cheap-o parts and prone to falling apart. Just like my Galaxy Note.

This phone actually has a metal back, so I think it's more sturdily built this time. Although it does look like samsung went back a bit on the overall design.

The HTC 8X is a better deal I think.

What as the iPhone price got to do with it? Why should a Windows phone have to be cheaper than an iPhone when the iphone has less features. Take for example the Nokia 920 with

1. Higher Resolution Screen
2. Bigger Screen
3. Higher ppi screen with superior performance outdoors.
4. NFC
5. Optical Image stabilization.
6. f2.0 Lens.
7. Wireless charging
8. Sensitive touch screen that can be used whilst wearing standard gloves.
9. More robust chassis and screen.

And in my opinion much better OS but that is probably more a matter of personal taste.

A good phone and a competitive price for it.

If you're into looks, you wouldn't go for the now looking dated, toy look IOS. After all, it's the OS you should be looking at ,not the case.
