I normally like to write a fully in-depth review on dooyoo but this one will not be up to my normal standards as I only had this phone for three days as it is without doubt the worst piece of kit I have ever used.
Some may say that I didn't give it a chance but there's a difference between perservering with a phone while you learn how to use it and having a phone actually work against you in everything you try to do.
Make no mistake, the Storm is truly abysmal.
I couldn't hear people when they were talking to me and I think they struggled to hear me.
As for texting, I would rather hammer my never regions to a sinking ship than have to endure using the Storm's unresponsive, un-intuitive touch screen again.
Effectively I refused to speak to my friends for three days until the phone was replaced as communicating with them was painful.
So then all I could do with the phone is take pictures, browse the internat and listen to music.
But when I took pictures the phone crashed, I missed out on two great shots because the entire phone seized up, before it even saved the image.
Meanwhile, the internet browser was diabolical, with the few web pages I looked at not loading in correctly. Moreover WLAN is not supported on the Storm so you have to rely on the Edge technology which is not really comparable.
And the music player was, to be fair, quite good but the sound quality without the headphones was awful meaning you would need external speakers to get any kind of decent sound from the phone.
The only good word I have to say about this phone is how it looks. It is a stunning looking phone but, as the saying goes, beauty is only skin deep.
Add: I have just tried to submit this review but as I had not entered anything for Processing/quality; reliability or ease of use the site made me re-submit - so my score is actually false for this. I rate it 0!
Summary: Possibly the worst phone ever made?
