Pros: Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight, smooth animation/video
Cons: need to find out how to tweak music sound
Display is really clear and sharp. Animations are very smooth. Pictures are very good. Navigation is very easy after a few minutes of learning how Windows Phone 8 works.
There are many good apps. WP8 is relatively new and will certainly grow mature as a mobile phone platform as it gains market share.
This phone is very light ... I keep checking my pocket to make sure I put it back in there. I am able to get it in and out of the protective case fairly easily for access to the SD card.
Quality construction and the flash is really good ... I downloaded a flashlight app and it works really well.
The only concern I have is that I need to learn how to tweak the sound and I have not yet been able to positively identify an external sound/speaker bluetooth/NFC or docking device that is compatible. But I just got this phone and I still need to browse the manual and research online.
I am very, very glad I switched to this Odyssey WP8 phone. All my Zune music magically appeared in the Music & Videos app, as did my Xbox gamer tag avatar in the Xbox Games app. I was surprised I could send a message to my brother on his Xbox from my new phone.
All my SkyDrive stuff is syncing smooth and fast (I turned on the WiFi and hooked up with my home network) and downloads are fast. My OneNote notebooks look great and I can zoom in and out easily with the touch gestures. I haven't opened a Word doc yet in Office Mobile but will check that out soon.
Overall, I am very happy with this new WP8 Odyssey.

I wanted to get away from the iphone and I read such great reviews on this one, I decided I would give it a try. I was not disappointed. I love the OS on it as I am running windows 8 also on pc. also love the apps and the people hub on it. great value for the money. another great Samsung product!

Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight
Cons: see above
Everyone on the boards says that Windows 7 was great. Windows 8?? Eh! The thing I dislike the MOST about the Odyssey is that it's almost impossible to manage the memory. I have an 8 gb SD card. I can tell the phone to put new pictures and sounds on the card. Everything else is cemented in place. The phone has 7.8 gb of memory. Mine is FULL. Even when I delete apps, the math doesn't work out. If I delete an app that is 45m, I would expect that to show in the Storage section. NOPE. From what I gleaned from the manual, the only real way to free up memory, is to, get this...RESET the phone to factory settings. This will erase EVERY APP that has been added. So, start from scratch to free memory? How CONVENIENT!
I still have more than 4 gb on my SD card, but there's no way to move anything over to it. So...for that reason, the phone didn't get a great score. Also the sound. No adjustments except for volume. No EQ, no tone controls, nothing. Take it or leave it are your only options.
PROS: GREAT picture. Rich vibrant textures, and the sound isn't bad either.
