"Great balance of performance, size and battery."5.0 starson by xxxD44xxx
Pros: Excellent balance of performance, size and battery power. The slide-out keyboard feels very solid and works great. Phone is a very good size, enough to feel solid, not so big that it's hard to handle.
Cons: Nothing significant comes to mind. I haven't had too much luck with the camera, though that may be operator error. The voice dial and voice search functions sometimes give pretty funny, though incorrect. interpretations of what I say!
Summary: This phone is perfect for me. I've tried both the EVO and the Optimus. One was too much for me, the other not enough. The EVO Shift has the best of both, plus an excellent slide-out QWERTY key board. With just a little care, I get 2 days use out of a single battery charge. I haven't had great results with the Telenav navigation, as it often suggests pretty ridiculous routes. Overall, this phone is terrific. I couldn't be happier with it.
