FTC: I was given this Lumia phone to try for a trial period of three weeks and a $200 gift card. This is an honest review.
Microsoft Lumia gave me one Lumia phone and $200 to spend on clothes for this style challenge. Luckily for me, a lot of the stores were having exceptional Veteran’s Day sales. SCORE!!
The first place I went to was the Old Navy store near me. I used the phones Cortana feature to check on the weather and traffic. Cortana is the Lumia’s version of Google Now and Suri. I have used both Suri and Google Now and I feel like the Cortana is a good mix of both which actually makes it better than the other two. I wish my regular phone had Cortana.
While I was in Old Navy, I tried on a few sweaters, some shoes, some jeans, and a coat. I ended up buying the coat, a sweater, a long sleeved shirt, and the jeans. This will be my basic everyday wardrobe. Then I went to Torrid and tried on a cute sweater that I love because it has a heart on it and elbow pads. I also tried on two pairs of jeans. I loved the high waisted jeggings more than the popular stiletto jean because they aren’t too cropped on my legs.
A few days later I went to the grand opening of the new H&M at Southpark Mall. I had a few dollars left on my gift card, soooooo I bought a cute oversized sweater for just $10. They had the best opening day sales. If you missed it, weellll you missed it. 🙂
Anyway. I enjoyed my time on the challenge. I love the phone. The graphics are great, and I can still use my favorite apps like Instagram and Facebook. I also like how I can save everything, from pictures to documents, on the web with OneDrive. If you are shopping for a new phone this season, check out the Nokia Lumia 635 Microsoft phone. I have about a week left with this phone, I am gonna hate having to give it up so I might be looking for a Lumia phone in the future.
