Hmm looking at it, it seems more along the lines of a budget phone due to it's blue coloring, which makes me think that there is almost no way that this will have a Snapdragon, which is incredibly disappointing since every other major carrier has a phone with a Snapdragon in it. Great job. This would also stand to support the idea that AT&T purposely cripples its Android devices so that they don't affect iPhone sales.

So because the phone has color it means "there is almost no way that this will have a Snapdragon"? That's some superb logic from someone jumping on the ATT/Iphone hatewagon. Great job.

Since when did a phone's color have to do with the processor.? Just be like everyone else and bash AT&T and the Apple iPhone for no reason. Wow. Smh

This phone rated .5 higher than the SAMSUNG Captivate - it is a great phone and it is mid-level, not a high-end ANDROID - for what it is - the phone is FUNtastic....especially when rooted. As for talk of being crippled - it is actually no different than the iphone, which cannot download 3rd party apps until jailbroken - any more bright comments/ideas, random??

I got this phone on black friday for free from tigerdirect. I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far. From what i've read it only has a 600mhz processor, but has a slightly lower resolution than high end phones. The resolution difference keeps it able to run apps and such at basically the same speed as high end phones. If you can find a deal to get this phone for free, the resolution difference is not noticeable enough to pay too much for a higher end phone.
Battery life is somewhat of an issue. But even with the "new-ness" effect that's causing me to constantly play with it while connected to wi-fi, it hasn't gone dead on me before day's end. (Though it does need charged as soon as I get home in the evening)
