"Miss a real keyboard...this is for you!"4.5 starson by maddog2727
Pros: Keyboard, large battery, customizable side button, able to turn on by pushing any key, app launching though keyboard shortcuts, don't have to remove battery for SD card, notification light is separate from battery charging light.
Cons: Camera, keyboard is slightly cramped, still on Android 2.2, you can only pick silent or vibrate...not both. Need a third party app to fix this.
Summary: I love android phones. I had an EVO...but I really missed my physical keyboard. I am mainly a web surfer, texter, and emailer. I got frustrated when typing quickly on an on-screen keyboard.
This phone is amazing for anyone who needs a keyboard (not a vertical keyboard...ew) a la Blackberry. While slightly cramped, you do get used to typing on it. Love the quick launch key. I have my camera assigned to it so I can quickly take a picture of something.
The small screen is not bothersome at all. This is not meant to be an entertainment device...if you need to watch lots of videos and such...get a phone with a larger screen.
I did notice there was one app that was not compatible with this phone, the ESPN score center app. Then again, ESPN sucks anyhow, I went back to the Score Mobile App.
This is a fantastic phone that meets all business needs with the power of android behind it. While people may poo-poo blackberries, there are still those that prefer to have a real keyboard to type on instead of sending texts and emails that would appear on "damnyouautocorrect.com".
