Could have been one of the best phones if it had a good processor.

Overall it's a great phone. Very sturdy, has a beautiful UI and wonderful functions. The weather function is marvelous. However what troubles me is that the processor is not good enough to handle all the functions efficiently, hence it gets stuck every now and then. The longer I've had it, the more often it crashed and I had to remove the battery and put it back in again. Also, it sometimes activates or deactivates applications by itself. Texting is very difficult, the accelerometer isn't quick enough and the music player gets stuck. I believe these issues arise because I have loads of songs on my memory card, but a phone should be able to handle that. So if you won't be using your phone as a music player, it is otherwise a great phone.

Build quality 10/10 Shock-proof-ish body. Dropped it many times and received no damage.
Reception 8/10 Good reception but when the battery cover is off, signals drop considerably.
Call quality 9/10 Loud and clear voice on both ends
Internet 8/10 A bit slow and the screen is just too small for proper internet browsing.
Multimedia 6/10 A good integrated music player but it gets stuck if you have loads of songs. The Windows Media Player however is relatively quicker but the display buttons show poor qualiy.
Camera 8/10 A nice camera but tries to focus itself too much and you end up with a blurry picture. No photo-editing capabilities.
UI speed 5/10 Not very responsive when apps are open, but quick enough when the phone is not loaded.
Everyday usage 6/10 Fun to use but gets annoying at times.
Text input 5/10 The keys are too small and the dictionary sometimes automatically saves incorrect words as well. Bringing the keypad in landscape mode is a slow process.
Display 10/10 Wonderful High Definition display. You don't want to use any phone that's not HD after using this.
Battery 6/10 Started off with running two days straight but that reduced and now the battery won't charge to it's full capacity and comes near to dying after every hour.

Awesome phone

Its been like 2 months since ive been using this phone and so far i had no problems. The display clarity is simply incredible. The only thing which I miss is the flash. Sometimes the phone hangs, so all I need to do is keep the phone for 2 minutes and it will get perfect on its own...

Design 8/10
Features 10/10
