Good: Compact & plenty of features inc GPS & Sat Nav
Bad: A bit clunky for text entry - battery life not great esp when running apps
Comment: I didn't want a smart phone - they are too big and clunky for me in my work environment and I'd just break it. But this was nice and cheap on contract and really compact - no bigger than my old traditional type mobile. Does everything I need and fits on my belt and in my car nicely.
Good: cheapish starter touch phone for Blackberry defectors
Bad: achingly slow and inaccurate text input
Comment: As a Blackberry stalwart disappointed with their recent models and lagging on features with existing Bold, decided to fork out 100 squid on this entry touch phone.
Found the pre-installed apps intrusive and unable to be deleted.
Screen too small and sticky for fast text entry, even with Swiftkey.
Feel exposed to access by 3rd party software app companies who demand knowledge of all your activities before you download. A strong uneasy feeling of being spied on and vulnerable to abuse which I did not have with the Blackberry. If the Q10 comes up to scratch I will switch back to Blackberry, whoever may own them by then.
Comment: I do so hate the way you present the prices.Only xyz on contract.the price is built into the contract otherwise phone companies would not be in business.the true cost is the contract total which includes xyz minutes and abc texts for the duration.Or is it all put your way to mislead potential buyers.At least the pay as you go figures are more honest ?
Comment: Have it since short. I'm happy with it. Like it more than my BB.
Good: What's good about it

Good: Cpu stronger then you would expect. The new Cortex A5 Snapdragon outperforms the original Snapdragons like the ones found in the Nexus One.
Bad: The screen isn't much good.
Comment: The SoC should allow for the community to port JB to the device with relative ease.
Good: design, specs vs. price
Bad: screen colors
Comment: Luke Mankio is pure crap.
Comment: This phone is just pure crap
