Disadvantages: touchscreen, battery, not lightweight, no wifi, no fm radio, freezes alot.
I brought this phone about 5 months ago. I wanted to go for something different as everyone had the curves and i couldn't afford the torch so this was the next best thing, as i am a touchscreen fan and own a iphone i though this would be a good choice. I was wrong about the touchscreen firstly the phone is not touchscreen the screen itself is touch screen you can push down and will highlight the area but the screen itself is still unresponsive you have to push down on the screen like a keyboard. Which just totally defeats the idea of a touchscreen phone, the sound is also very loud and annoying when you have to push down on the screen. Also if you are clumsy or drop your phone alot i wouldnt recommend this phone the screen is very fraigile and because of the dodgy touchscreen feature when you drop it really messes of your screen and makes it slow and really dodgy to click in places.
The battery life is very poor. Have to constantly charge. It freezes a awful lot and i have to take my battery out and restart at least twice a day. It scratches very easy so i would recommend you get a case. The camera is not to bad but not great. Signal is hard to get in alot of places. Speakers are pretty loud for a phone. It has a good design and looks good to the eye but is Chubbier than most touchscreen phones. Dust easily gets into the buttons and under the screen.
But the phone is great for a business person or young people. BBM is a great, the push notifications for facebook and emails come through instantly. Another crazy thing there is no wifi? i dont know if it is something for everyone but have read it on quite alot of reviews aswell. Blackberry tired with this but didnt really get there. I would not recommend this phone at all. Also no fm radio.
Summary: would not recommend
