Thumbs up Review.....

Had this phone for about 3 wks now....

Battery - with wifi/bt/gps ect, all turned off - i can get from 8am - 8pm with about a 1/4 to spare bat life...
If i have EVERYTHING on, and constantly using web, camera ect - things can go from - 8am - 3pm...but ,most folk will not be using it constantly, so expect around and average of 12 - 16hrs of normal use...but everyone is differant !

Camera -good, detailed pics from the 5mp camera with flash - even in very low light thanks to the led flash -
Video is 720p HD & is great outside, crisp, clear, detailed video...
Auto focus is good.
Digital zoom is crap - as they ALL are !
inside the home/room, its not so good..
Can be a little grainy in very low light, but cant all video camera phones ?
sound is good..
Plenty of settings to choose from in both video & camera mode...to many to mention - google them :-)


this phone is fast..like, really fast when zippin through menus/folders ect, thanks to the 1GHz snapdragon processor.
It only has 512mb ram but its more than enough...

Storage - only has 320MB storage but has microsd slot for up to 32gb - you WILL NEED this 32gb microsd card if you take a lot of high res videos/pics.

screen has brightness control but NO contrast...but still looks clear n sharp...for the price anyway ! ( 99 payg on 3 )

Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread) installed...mine came with froyo 2.2 installed - i had to update it myself via update center ( easy ).....The best thing is -
This phone WILL be getting the new ICE CREAM SANDWICH android 4.0 update in the first Q of 2012

Front glass has gorilla glass ( scratch resistant )
Touch screen is very responsive with no lag.
Supports Adobe flash 11 ( update from android market )
WiFi works perfect.

browsing the web is great thanks to text reflow (autofit)....

and the music player (walkman) is really loud with "XLOUD" enabled...to loud for easy listening..but can be switched off..

all in all, for the price, your getting a great little phone thats great for ...

listening to music
streaming live broadcasts to BlogTv / Ustream ect
surfing the web
Taking great 720p video & great detailed 5mp pics
texting & making calls of course

For 99 on PAYG on 3 network = 15 pm get you - 300 minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data to use within 30 days

one thing i will say thou - get one of those gel case's for this phone...( 3-5 from amazon )
The amount of times its has slipped out of my hands was crazy...way to slippery a casing..get a gel case for it - trust me on this one !


i,m surprised not many other people are buying this great little phone

enjoy your new phone

Hi great review... I am buying this phone today, needed your help?
1)Does it support launchers?
2)Does it support 3rd party widgets from market?

Even a YES/NO answer will do
Waiting for your reply!

1) Yes, any launcher I tried worked, and I settled once again for Zeam launcher. I like Free Software. :-)

2) Yes, the stock and pretty much any other launcher will work with widgets from the Play Store or elsewhere.

This phone is outstanding choice in mid price range android smartphones. Its body, interface and performance are very good.
