Advantages: Simple to use, access to android market, everything you need.
Disadvantages: freezes or slows when memory full, screen size,
I've had this phone for about nine months now and I have found it to be an excellent phone, beating my expectations. I did not buy it to have the best phone out there, I bought it to have a good phone, with access to android market and a decent camera, on a reasonable contract. This phone has not disappointed. The phone is VERY simple to use unless you particularly struggle with technology. I originally found it to be similar to my boyfriend's HTC desire, believing his phone to be slightly better, but I have eventually changed my mind deciding that my phone is superior in many ways. Most of all it is reliable, I've only had it crash on me twice and that was probably because I was overloading it- I'm not too patient. I've dropped it about 10 times, my daughter has attacked it with her new teeth and it is still working as new. While it's battery life can be poor- an almost universal problem with touchscreen phones, it is not TOO bad, it will still last over a day, which is better than many phones. The same with the dreaded 'force closes', it happens, but no more than any other Android phone.
The only thing I do not thing is amazing on this phone is the camera, but I am spoiled with my last phone being the Satio. It annoys me because you cannot zoom unless you take the picture at 2mp. This makes it difficult sneaking cute pictures of my LO playing. I also find the gallery a bit annoying to use, you can't organise your images how you want to have them. Similarly, it can be difficult to find and organise downloaded files, but this can be helped by downloading a file managing app.
Overall I recommend this phone if you're not looking for the latest thing, and if you have a digital camera you're happy with.
Summary: Excellent phone for the price, if you're not bothered about having the latest tech.
