"Cool features, but some cumbersome issues"3.0 starson by rescueofme
Pros: I really like the phone and its features. The design is sleek and I like the option between touch screen and keyboard. I have only had it for about a week, so I am still learning the ins and outs, but I have been mostly happy with the phone.
Cons: Problems with the slide screen, and camera delay.
Please see explanation below.
Summary: First, and most important, more often than not the phone does not recognize when I open up the slide keyboard. This is really annoying and makes texting difficult when you have to use a traditional T9 on the touchscreen because you can't get the phone to realize that the keyboard has been opened. The T9 is also less than intuitive and won't even put the ' in I'm for you. I'm not sure if the slider issue is a universal one, as I haven't seen it mentioned in any reviews I've looked up. The phone is relatively new to the market, though.
The camera also has about a half second delay from when you push the button to when the picture is taken. Makes it hard to take decent pictures of anything that isn't completely stationary. I have a 6 month old son and spent 15 minutes yesterday trying to get one photo of him smiling before he moved his head that I could use for my background.
The phone looks cool, and I like some of the features, but the issues listed above are probably a deal breaker for me. I will be going back to the AT&T store to either get my phone replaced or swapped for a different one.
