  • Battery issues, Google Apps refused to connect, No FM Radio
  • Limited number of pages for homescreen, Subpar imaging quality with no LED flash, Unresponsive virtual QWERTY keyboard
  • Poor Camera, Poor Battery Life
  • Stuck on Android 1.6. On screen keyboard is a disaster. Feels cheap compared to other top-end Android efforts
  • Currently runs on the older Android 1.6 OS, battery life is soso
  • The touch screen isn't quite as responsive as we like and makes using the keyboard a bit frustrating; it also lacks multitouch capabilities. The phone can be sluggish, and the camera
  • Messed up ergonomics, build quality not up to the mark, poor loudspeaker (in quality and volume), no flash for camera, unmarked keys below display are confusing and hard to locate in the dark, no DivX/XviD playback, memory card not hot swappable
  • Camera takes long to save and geotag images, Camera focuses only on lower area of frame, speakerphone is low, Proximity sensor could have been better
  • Lacks hardware navigation pad or trackball; custom interface not all that useful; social-networking features not well integrated; unimpressive battery life even though processor was underclocked
  • Sluggish on-screen keyboard, lack of useful preloaded apps or widgetsLook and Feel
  • Very poor battery life, bulky
  • Mediocre personalization, Almost unusable integration of social networks, Low quality headset (boxed), Software gets unstable at times
