My own opinion is as follows:
- The OS: Very responsive! Very smooth! Way better than how I'd expect a 600Mhz device to run 2.1.
- Screen: Low res, but has a good refresh rate. Small size.
- Input: Resistive touchscreen, no multi-touch, very responsive with most things, finger tips have trouble sometimes. Physical buttons good also, can feel a bit cheap sometimes, although I'm used to my Milestone.
- Audio: Ear piece is just fine, speaker phone is absolutely useless, BT work well though.
Not sure what else to add to that list. One thing I want to emphasize though, who ever built the ROM for this phone did one hell of a good job! This is one of the fastest ROMs I've played with on a phone with this kind of CPU clock speed.
This phone plays Angry Birds smoother than my Milestone overclocked to 900Mhz (stock speed is 550Mhz), and much better than my wife's LG Shine Plus (also 600Mhz).
If you're looking for a low-end, cheap android device that delivers, then this is a good place to start shopping.
I can't get any of the Angry Bird games to install.
