"The Real Android Experience"4.5 starson by markdoiron
Pros: Unadulterated Android--and Gingerbread, at that. Beautiful display. Larger size makes on-screen keyboard much more usable by fat-fingered me. Wi-fi tethering.
Cons: No HSPA+. Lack of replaceable SD card is a small nit. Android copy/paste is poor--guess I'll root the phone and buy Copy-Paste It. Prefer the finish of the backside of the HTC phones (i.e., Nexus 1). No Gorilla Glass.
Summary: I love this phone. It's fast. It's raw Android. I have a few con's listed above, but the only one that is of any significance is the lack of HSPA+ support. Still, I get 4-Mb/s on 3G and 15-Mb/s on wi-fi. Am looking forward to someone making use of the forward facing camera--that will be fun. Wi-fi tethering is super--especially when my iPad-owning friends lament the lack of a wi-fi network somewhere (all being too cheap, as am I, to pay yet even more money for yet another Internet connection). As for the copy-paste con above, that is a clear demonstration of why I prefer this to anything Apple, even though Apple has a good copy-paste function on the iPhone: I have the option to easily root this phone and install an app that handles the chore nicely. With Apple, and even with some carrier Android phones, rooting the phone is not an option. Freedom is pure, raw, unadulterated Android.
