Well, Windows Phone 7.5 Mango is fully loaded with dozens of features that together offer a richer browsing experience, better LinkedIn and Twitter integration, moderate multitasking, a superb interface for meeting friends via ad-hoc groups, Wi-Fi hotspot mode, healthier approach for functioning of apps, and more. With these features revealed to you, I am sure your interest in this smartphone is now up. So, let us review it in more detail.
The Windows Phone 7.5 Mango phone features a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (8×55 or 7×30 CPU), 384MB RAM minimum, 4GB of flash memory, DirectX graphics support, 3D hardware acceleration, MicroUSB 2.0, 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n support, Bluetooth, and four sensors.
Display and UI
With an elongated WVGA screen featuring 800 x 480 pixels resolution, you surely have nothing to strain or complain about the display. Talking of the UI, you will be enjoying your multitasking activities in the standard Metro UI that features two tiled columns on the Start screen followed by the alphabetical app list as you swipe instantly to the left. A new introduction in this part of the phone is the way the content is displayed although the tile placement and size is the same. Several native tiles offer more viewable content and that the third-party apps get updated dynamically.
Messaging and Email
This feature was something that lacked in the previous Windows Phone versions. Fortunately, Windows Phone 7.5 Mango has now overcome this weakness. Combine email accounts of your choice to enjoy a universal inbox, communicate with threaded conversations, chat for long and see all the conversation in one full group, and exploit the +1 benefit – it’s totally your pick!
Go professional with LinkedIn and turn to personal with Facebook and Twitter integration. Further, enjoy Twitter feeds in native apps such as People Hub and Me Hub. As these sites have joined Microsoft, your social networking experience on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango will be really bit unique.
This is the novel feature of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango that no other mobile platform has offered until today. This is where this smartphone grabs the attention of phone lovers. With this phone, you can now organize Groups via the People Hub app and interact with them simultaneously as if you are in meeting with them. The moment you form a group, it is seen as a Hub with three pivot screens featuring live tiles for every individual. And yes, you can even email them, comment/like their Facebook updates, and view the pictures and latest notifications.
The best part here is that Windows Phone 7.5 Mango has rectified the problem in earlier versions wherein the phone would lose settings on closing the camera, which used to irritate more when it was the matter of video recording. So, you can expect the Save settings option and restore the default settings option. Other features are the on-screen shutter button but with the focus on middle area as well as no support for touch-to-focus and the auto-fix utility for enhancing the already present shots.

Go for it if you are a beginner. However, its time-behind hardware specification that lacks dual core processor and 4G support will not let the phone go on the top.
