Thats a perfect resolution for that size phone. While my Droid 4's 540 x 960 (275 PPi) resolution has turned out to be much better then I expected, a solid 1366 X 768 or 1280 X 720 would be ideal for it.

Oh damn, it looks kinda like an Apple product if you squint and look at it from the right angle, time for another lawsuit from the Cupertino camp. Not a bad phone for the price, be interested to see some reviews when it starts getting around.

If it's only offered on contract then it's moot to me. If it wasn't then it could've been a decent alternative to these other uber expensive things.

While this phone is unlikely to attract the hardcore Android fans who want the best of the best, for phone shoppers on a budget who are looking for a device with good specs and a large screen, and who have no idea how God-awful Sprint's network is, the new Vital could be an option worth considering.

Fixed.

Phones are getting to big for a woman's pockets. I thought that this was funny or a joke until I had a discussion with the ladies around my house and found that newer phones do not fit in their pockets. They're so large that when sitting down new phones might fall out.

Meanwhile I fit an entire DVD, case and all, into my Manly pants pocket and told them, "function over fashion." They only sneered at me.

My wife won't even carry keys in her pockets! Sounds like your women are more practical than some :)
