Excellent review Rafe. I think this is going to be a good seller for normobs, and those they aren't screen snobs.

Usual round the product shots, but then some extras of the camera module and the device internals.

Focus on the device as a smartphone, rather than just a super camera. Plenty of camera coverage to come though.

Such clever innovation from Nokia on the screen. Always surprised more hasn't been done here before, given it what you look at every day on your phone.

Much missed from the Symbian days. Hopefully the functionality will be improved upon as the OS is updated. Missed calls, texts, etc. Glad to see it make a comeback.
