    So far so good. The screen is great and it is the fastest android phone i have used to date. I was a bit worried about the Samsung ui but it is integrated very nicely. I cannot find the menu area to see what the actual processor is. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Some photos as proof that you have the phone would be a good start and if you do truly have the phone how is the battery holding up?

    I have only had it for about two hours so I cannot comment on the battery yet, but I will tomorrow evening. Any other questions?

    at the moment that is the only question i really had.... unless you've noticed some features that differ from most Android phones.....

    The camera app and flash are excellent. The cube feature is nothing great and is not a major part of the ui at all. I am loving it so far. The keyboard is also good.

    what is the cpu, memory or this device? what is the added extras as people have speculated 800mhz cpu and more ram than the galaxy which i dont believe can be true

    Can you go into settings > About phone and tell is the info

    Firmware version
    Baseband version
    Kernel version
    Build number

    there must be an area that gives the device firmware versions in settings surely?

    I just had the cliq before the behold 2 and I really liked it. The form factor was pretty good, but the keyboard was a bit on the small side. I am posting a video to youtube and I will post the link here in a few.

    I would totally love to see a video,I do prefer virtual keyboards. IF you could answer the few questions I asked in the previous post,curious abt processor, and how and internal storage, how many gadgets from the android market do u think it can store,battery,UI.Anything . your video will be a hit,looking forward to seeing it

    It only has 153MB internal storage, and it says only 80 available. I just went through all of the menu settings and still cannot find the build, processor info. I have about 7 or 8 apps loaded and there is room for more. The battery is still kicking butt. I have been up for several hours, I always have the gps and wifi on, and have taken quite a few calls, emails and texts and the battery has only dipped one of the five bars. Video should be up soon, youtube is still processing it. I created it on my imac and it is a .mov file....I wonder if that is going to work?

    sounds awesome, everything does.Only thing I am bummed about is the internal storage space. I thought it was 256 bs, so 80 mb only free darn.maybe that is with their apps loaded too.Hopefully can delete them. I want to get a bunch of apps. Will have to wait until 18th to get the phone, wish it was sooner.

    nice the keys are backlit unlike the galaxy, camera is so much better than the galaxy's even tho its apparently the same 5mp lens your camera software is brilliant
    i wonder how hum tmobile usa has applied pressure to samsung to get it right

    maybe they did indeed use us galaxy owners as beta testers as it seems the only thing we have is built in 8 gig and the rest is pants in comparison although i do still like my phone


    nice 1st vid

    Thanks for the quick feedback for us. Can you elaborate on the "Quick List" and show a better view of the media skin(s)?

    I just have to say how odd ,unfortunate really, that the specs on this are so elusive. Gives the feeling that they are hiding a not so impressive proc, but if it performs decently, then I'll give it a spin just for the screen, flash, and BIG BATTERY. (I liked the G1 but couldn't live with the horrible battery life.)

    And is it the best android phone you used, or one of the best?

    just a hint from a galaxy user, battery life is significantly improved if you only enable background data when you need it.
    if it has a similar case to the galaxy (leather pouch) it holds down the camera button in sleep and drains the battery

    also it takes a few days to condition the li ion battery
    in the location settings (if you have the option) you can disable "use wireless networks" as that is the a-GPS which i find drains battery when driving as it scans each cell you go past when it hands over for location information.

    when i first got my galaxy my battery would only just last a day. now i can make it last 2 while using it for music 2+ hrs a day

    Mad props for posting responses so quickly. I'm familiar with Android but new to using the actual devices, so I really appreciate it!

    Anyway, to point, if you can make it to 7pm with GPS and WiFi running and no battery conditioning, that's a H3LL of a lot better than the G1. With moderate 3G usage, WiFi rarely on, NEVER using GPS, and the screen brightness way down, I could only just get to 4pm after coming fully-charged straight off the car charger at 8am. It was irritating having to pack up the wall charger every morning... (The capacity was barely more than my SE TM506's 950mAh.) I had no intention of spending MORE cash for a bigger battery and/or addl. charger and still being stuck w/o a proper headphone jack...

    I'm really looking forward to this phone, acknowledging certain issues, notably the pointless "Cube" UI's button instead of a Search button, but more importantly the disappointing memory specs and apparently unimpressive CPU. Especially for the anticipated premium price. (For what?)

    btw someone has just got hold of the source code and its the same 192 mb of ram and528 qualcom processor thats in the galaxy.
    infact other than the extra button and mass storage space its the same phone chipset and power wise
    its running a nicely modified 1.5 cupcake and not 1.6
