"Best of US Cellular's Android Bunch"4.5 starson by 13dava
Pros: Gorgeous display - especially compared to the HTC Desire and Samsung Acclaim, US Cellular's other Android options.
Cons: I went from BlackBerry to the Mesmerize, which is like going from a tank to a sports car. You definitely get the sense that the touchscreen is fragile, but I thought that about all of the models.
Summary: 16GB Micro SD comes with it, double the battery life of the other options, Swype technology for texting, easy USB connection for loading/unloading music, pictures and ringtones. Sound is fantastic during calls. The first day of Android can be a bit overwhelming bit the layout makes sense and it's easy to use.
Invest in a shell, screen protector and a protective leather or padded case (you'll have to shop around for one that fits). This is not the kind of phone I'd put in my back pocket.
I've noticed a lag during texting compared to BlackBerry but have heard that this is a touchscreen issue in general. Using the Swype alleviates the lag and it's pretty neat to use. Swype is faster than touch texting even for a novice.
Sync with Gmail and Google calendar was flawless and super easy to set up.
