    8 gigs of non expandable storage is terrible.

      Indeed, it’s a shame that MS has to compete with the low end devices that made Android so popular, otherwise I could see them giving a 16GB minimum.

    Another puny little junk phone!  Geez can’t we get some premium hardware here?!?  It is so frustrating seeing all the good hardware being wasted on Android.

    Who the heck are these for?  Munchkins?  Who in their right mind makes a smartphone display less than 4.3 inches these days?  Especially when the Note has this beautiful 5.3 inch display many others have 4.5 and 4.7 inch displays!  It is VERY frustrating.
