Pros Bright 3.7" AMOLED Screen
3G US Support (1900 for ATT Customers)
HD Video Reocrding
Open Source OS
Variety of video codec support - No need to convert videos
Cons UI interaface not as intuitive.
Not a mulitouch screen like the Iphone
Summary I've had this phone for over a month and I cannot put it down. There are so many things you can do it since its Symbian. It does not have the crippled or restrictive OS like the Iphone has. You can basically install any applications thats geared for S60 5th edition. One note for the CNET Editor review - I'm very certain you tested the phone on T-mobile's network which does not support 3G at 1900 band. AT&T has 1900 bands across the nation and therefore 3G is supported. I live in Southern California and happily streaming my videos, music and even video conferrencing with my beautiful Samsung I8910
Pros The screen and colors will blow you away. Had a hard time setting up my AT&T settings, but found a website called "Configure My Phone" and had everything set-up in under 5 minutes. I love the operating system.
Cons I haven' found any yet.
Summary Not sure if this will hit the US or not, but it's the best one I've purchased so far. I owned the iPhone, 5800 Nokia, Blackberry Bold, and this dances circles around all of them.
Pros screen(AMOLED), divx, Fring (Yahoo,AIM, Skype,MSN,facebook, and more into one program), wifi,gps, records in 720p with the 8mgpx camera, capacitive touch. 16gb or 8 gb version expandable with micro sd. v5.1 sound. All that running on S60 5th edition.
Cons The touchwiz UI is not that great but from watching videos i saw that you can switch from the touchwiz to the regular s60 5th touch homepage. The battery might be a problem but they said they will put a 1500
Summary This might be the best phone coming out this year
Pros 3.7' AMOLED Display
600mhz processor (same as 3GS)
Bluetooth (Proper bluetooth I mean, one that can send and revieve things unlike the iPhone)
Great design, not a fat phone
Symbian S60 5th ed.
Cons Absolutley nothing.
Summary Cnet gives a bad representation of what this phone is capable of. We all know the cnet folks trash anything that isn't made by apple or Google. Androids flat out suck since their functionality is based completely on having a data plan. Apple could wrap poo in aluminium and the masses would buy it sadly. This phone is by far the most well rounded featured phone out there. If you think its too expensive, I can understand that....you're cheap. If you don't buy this phone, its cool, I'll be the only person in the room with the Ferrari Enzo of phones. =D
