I was very excited about this phone. It feels very well built and has some fun applications. The camera is good in reasonable light and the hand writing recognition is fun to play with. Quite a lot of thought has gone into theis phone, I particularly enjoyed the favourite contacts shortcut. I had the phone for almost 2 weeks but I had to take it back and exchange it for the Nokia 6220 (which is a downgrade as I now do not have wi-fi), but the reasons were:
The "camera light" is an led and does not give adequate light for night time pictures
The battery life was not nearly as long as the advertised times. I managed to get through a full battery in under a day - with no video footage, and just a little internet browsing and a couple of pictures taken. I found I had to charge the phone every 3 days even when it was barely used and all apps were closed.
The phone has no green and red buttons to call and disconnect. While these appear on the touch screen when calling, they disappear if a text message is received during a call. You then have to go through ( a very short) menu to end your call.
The applications are slow to load up and you have to physically end them through the task manager to make sure you don't run your battery down even quicker.
When the phone is on silent, it continues to vibrate, so it wakes you up at night anyway. You can obviously also turn vibrate off but you have to go through the menu to do so, which is a little cumbersome.
If you send a contact's details by sms, you can not include any other text. You cannot reply to a message and add a contact, you can only select a contact, send via sms and choose the receipient.
It was a very difficult decision to trade this phone in as I did enjoy using it depsite the negative points above as I really enjoyed the look and feel of this phone and it was a joy to use (despite the slight sluggishness), but the proper flash on the Nokia swung my decision.
I didn't have the phone long enough to download any additional apps but the few already on the phone worked well.
