Pretty design, but.....
The selling point of this phone for me is the looks and cool lights. Music plays pretty loudly and I get lots of compliments as well. The phone has a lot of good points like how you can change the screen saver for the center button. Also, the muvee program is pretty neat and cool to have. And it's pretty durable too.. I dropped it like 100X and it still still works fine with minimal scratches =)
Despite some of the good points, I still share a love/hate relationship with this phone... some bad points are, it freezes atleast once everyday, the phone will restart itself for no reason, the camera has an extreme case of shutter lag (that means say bye bye to pictures of kids/pets), the pictures takes awhile to load in viewer, once the phone turns off it takes a long time for the phone to process images and mp3s but after the initial start it will start normally again, battery life isn't so good.
But if you don't mind the minor glitches, then this phone is pretty good. It works well as a phone and a music player, but not fantastic... it'll be able to turn a few heads though ^_^Design 8/10Features 6/10Performance 5/10

Ok for the price...
THis phone costs about 240usd where i am but they cut the price by 40% so i decided to buy it. I never would have bought this at it's original price because to be totally honest, there are much better options.
I like the phone, it's well built and feels solid, there are no creaks when pressing it. It slides open and closed very nicely. The call quality is good but i am surprised that this phone only has one speaker since many of my past music phones (mostly from sony) use two speakers, one for the earpiece and another for the ringer and music, but i guess thats not a big deal... It does play music quite well on it's own although it's strong point is from it being able to stream tunes to bluetooth speakers or recievers capable of playing better quality audio than any phone would...
I do like the scroll wheel and touchpad in the middle although i wish they could have given more controls over the settings. Two annoying things are the mp3 button (touch sensitive) at the bottom left corner of the phone, it gets in the way everytime your palm or finger touches it and goes straight from whatever mode you are it to the mp3 mode. The second thing i don't like is that when making calls, all the touch sensetive controls lock up and you can't select options like hold and mute without having to unlock the phone, it's annoying but something that i guess most users will get used to over time. I do wish there were a setting for the user to override...Design 6/10Features 5/10Performance 5/10
- Looks nice
- Cool scrollwheel and middle touchpad
- Feels solid and well built
- Limited camera settings and controls. Shutter lag. Poor picture quality
- Annoying touch sensitive buttons outside the scrollwheel are easily accidentally pressed
- Doesn't offer as many features as other phones in it's price range. Some basic functions like moving files to folders require a lot more work than other phones.
- Marketed as a music phone but the music controls are really basic, there isn't even an equalizer.
