Superb keyboard, Excellent messaging features.
Outdated Android 2.2 install, Custom user interface doesn't enhance Android, Awkward button, audio jack placement, Anemic camera, Poor 4G speeds, Unnecessary touch pad
A bit on the heavy side, no builtin memory, doesn’t come running Gingerbread, interface and plethora of buttons is a bit confusing to operate.
Smallish screen, Social networking integration is flawed, Slightly slower than Galaxy S handsets
Lacks 850/1900 MHz 3G, Some minor software glitches
Mediocre camera, odd button layout
Cheap plastic exterior, Jittery web browsing navigation, Poor battery life
The user interface won't appeal to everyone. The smartphone can occasionally be sluggish.
Awkwardly placed Power and Volume buttons. Some glitches in the setup app. Strong design flavor not for everyone.
Design is a bit on the heavy and chunky side, Camera is just average.
