The main feature which is looked up by Nokia is the wireless charging of the phone, which will be discussed in detail later.

INDUCTIVE OR WIRELESS CHARGING
Of all the features mentioned above this is the best feature that it comes with. For the first time a handset comes with wireless charging. The phone can be recharged inductively by using Qi Inductive Power Standard. For this the phone should be placed directly on the charging pad. That is it does not require any use of the physical connection with cables for charging the phone which is the most innovative idea in the arena of this smart phone.
It has received a good positive review. Its design is fabulous and eye capturing based on which CNET rated it 4 stars out of 5 stars. Besides its attractive design, Nokia mixradio, Nokia exclusive apps and other exciting feature, there are also unimpressive features which gives the negative side of it which are low battery life and heavy weight. But these may be ignorable in front of such innovative design provided in this phone and that is the reason why it is rated 4.5 out of 5 by the users. Laptop Mag being praised by the phone’s colorful design, inductive charging, HD screen, amazing image capturing feature, as well as amazing Nokia apps it rated 4 stars out of 5. Though this phone is preferred by almost every user but many resist it due to its bulkiness, low battery life and on top of that Windows Phone 8 has some big problem and even it does not have as many apps as an android and iOS. And of all these its main drawback is its non removable battery facility.
From the time of its release date that is 2nd November, 2012 it has received a good response from the market which can be observed from the survey which gives the sale percentage of the device ( it has been sold 4.4 million times more than any other Lumia devices in that period). And finally coming to its price, it ranges up to Rs. 31,500 or $698 USD. Hence with all the features mentioned above and the price tag on it I would like to give it 4 stars out of 5. As every thing is in front of your eyes you may give your own rating to it as every individual as its own point of view.
