"This phone is FANTASTIC!"4.5 starson by muffinit
Pros: Gorgeous screen-lightning processor-slide out keyboard+lights-capacitive touch screen is VERY responsive-android-no lag-YES HERO NO LAG-battery is great if you run task manager-LOUD speaker and speaker phone-comes with nice ear buds-much more......
Cons: Not much to say here but this phone really got a bum rap on some of the reviews- TANK
Summary: I had the hero right before this phone for three weeks and i have to tell you besides the UI, this phone has that one beat in just about every thing and especially performance. I really got tired of making mistakes on that keyboard and the lag irritated me. I actually like the virtual keyboard better on this than the hero. But the physical keyboard is a night and day difference.This phone will get to 15 percent and stay there a LONG time. Most users will charge it before 15 percent and don't realize how much life is still in the phone. I was at 15 percent and had a 45 min phone call and it still wasn't spent. It must be a firmware issue that should be resolved with updates.
I also had the iphone 3gs and several others and to compare but this phone just won me over. Now the UI is very basic but I am the type that likes to build and design my own UI and not what someone else already stuck in there. When 2.0 comes out and this gets it, that will be something really look forward to. I can't believe some of the reviews i read from some of the review sights???? It almost made me not get this phone. I am glad that I had to see for myself with all the great specs this phone has I couldn't just not try it. But I am glad I did and I think you will too if you have some tech smarts in you.
