Advantages: Very fast, Super-LCD clear screen, SDHC support, Multiple uses, Android
Disadvantages: Below average WiFi strength, Battery life, Poor internal space
Are the words you're looking for to describe this phone, everything about it justifies the price point. It packs a large amount of power in a lightweight, compact and cool phone.
It fits in the palm nicely and the Super-LCD screen on the phone works its charm, never again will you be seeing jagged edges on text, colour bleeding, or lighting that's far too harsh.
The phone itself support SDHC (which is currently the industry standard for Micro-SD) up to 32Gb, meaning you'll have plenty of space for your files, videos and music.
The phone being Android offers various utilities as you'd expect, such as being able to act as a WiFi hotspot through a 3G connection, and through the use of apps, enabling you to use your existing WiFi connection through USB on your computer.#
However the phone does have its flaws, although it does have support for every band of WiFi, it doesn't seem to get as great of a WiFi signal as you would with other devices (especially so compared to my Nintendo 3DS which gets a signal all throughout the household), so Access Point placement is going to be key, but if you're paying for a plan which includes unlimited 3G networking then this probably won't be too big of an issue.
Also the internal space isn't very good either, at around 250mb, this is easily solved with a Micro-SD card though as you can move all your files and apps onto there.
And finally the issue is battery life, you'll get enough for a full day out of the battery provided you're not calling all day or using WiFi, which seems to take up most of the battery fairly quickly.
But all this aside, if you're looking for a great phone for a modest price, then this could be the phone for you!
Summary: All in all this phone is a fantastic phone for a great price. It'll do what you'd expect and more.
