Advantages: Great screen size, excellent camera, long battery life, clear calls, good music quality
Disadvantages: Email sync unreliable, some apps don't close or sign out
I bought this phone on a whim and it was definitely a great idea!
The screen is large enough for videos and images to be clear and to make the use of ebook applications viable. The touchscreen is very responsive, though takes a bit of getting used to even if you've had a touchscreen phone before.
The option to set up your most-used applications on different pages is very useful and makes things easier to find if you have a lot of applications installed. On that note - there are hundreds of free apps including those to allow the use of Word/Excel, the Amazon Kindle ebooks etc.
Calls are clear and loud enough - in fact, I've never had the call volume above halfway, even in noisy public places.
The camera is simple to use and takes clear, high quality phots with a strong flash if necessary. The video camera is clear and the light settings adjust automatically if the lighting around you changes.
Most importantly, it has the battery life to be able to cope with all these functions. I played music for the whole of a six-hour journey, with other applications running, and the battery still held out through the phonecalls I had to make later.
The only downsides I've found:
- my emails don't usually sync at the rate I've set them to and I'd have to put it right up to "every five minutes" if I was out all day to make sure they keep coming through. I've taken to using the Hotmail and Gmail applications instead.
- some menus and applications don't close automatically or have an exit option, so you have to kill them from the task manager if you want them to close
Summary: A great phone for those who don't want to carry a camera, e-reader and mp3 too
