Cons: Display contrast
Summary: Seriously good phone.Forgot to add battery life in the list of Pros
Bigger display and roomier keypad than most clamshell phones.
I get great reception and very good call quality.
Very good battery life (rated 5.5 hrs talk, 12.5 days standby)
External display has its own selection of themes and fonts, and can double as a camera viewfinder when the phone is closed.
Camera is typical crappy vga, but the larger display makes it more fun to play with.
Display needs a bit more contrast.
Keypad characters are disappointingly dim, even when backlit.
Tip: try the groovy "xylophone" key tone.

Updated on Aug 30, 2009Well this is interesting. The Mantras now on store shelves have much more legible keypads than the one I ordered online when they were first introduced in June.
