Good: Camera, Screen, Android 4.0, Thin, Big,
Bad: Speaker can be poor at times.
Comment: Simply amazing phone, with android 4.0 its now even better!
The screen is simply divine, and the camera is perfect. Only down side could be the speaker, the sound that comes out of it isn't that great, but then its a smartphone not a stereo...
Good: Like the big screen
Bad: Way too many glitches and no one will support it
Comment: * USB plug makes the screen freeze - have to pull out the battery, reinsert it and restart the phone.
* Won't work with Kies or anything else (Rogers in Canada) No PC user interface i.e. can't download and update phone book etc.
* Push the side button while comers is on and phone will freeze up, have to turn it off and restart it.
* Can't update firmware or operating system (Rogers in Canada?) No stated intention to provide updates of any sort for this model. Rodgers in fact doesn’t even list this model in there service / support data base.
There are much better and far more functional phones than this on the market - stay away from the Rogers version for sure!!
Comment: Best phone so far, but galaxy s3 is obviously better
Comment: very good
Bad: battery life not good being a smart phone thats to be expected,they really should bring out better batteries for these phones the zoom when on the web, when you change page you have to redo the zoom again, its real easy to do but rather annoying when your on the web a lot as I am . The power etc button being on the side rather than the top I do find a little awkward
Comment: I have only had my phone for a week.so far Its one of the best phones I have had tho I havent used all the functions yet.
web connection speed is pretty good
Though the phone is all singing and dancing, I find it easy to use
navigating around the phone some of the things are not where you would expect them to be
If you use your phone a lot I recommend a spare battery for when you are put n about
as I turn my phone off to charge mine overnight and after a few hrs of heavy use Im scared the battery will die when im out
you get 3 small, far to small instruction books that do not tell you the half of what this smashing phone can do
I live in a poor signal area and I have not had to use the signal boost yet
the volume of the loud speaker is ok
the bottom line is would I recommend it to a friend YES
Good: i love d design..
Bad: no idea...
