Summary: I've been using this phone for the last 6 months or so, and I'm a very compulsive writer. Actually that's why I bought this phone. I'm in a couple of whatsapp groups to chat with friends daily about different topics, and I also use the phone to write new ideas, in it's very convenient office suite.
This is European Version--Plugs Don't Fit USA Sockets
8 April 2014
Summary: The plugs are made for European outlets so I couldn't keep the phone. Also, this did not come with the 8GB memory card it is supposed to include. I can't say whether the phone itself is good because I packed it up without turning it on once I realized I couldn't use it here in US.
Summary: Bin zum Blackberry Q5 gewechselt, nachdem mein iPhone 5 den Geist aufgegeben hat. Schon vor dem iPhone hätte ich gern ein Gerät mit Tastatur gehabt, da ich sehr viel mehr schreibe als telefoniere, jedoch haben mich beim Blackberry zuvor stets die eng angelegten Tasten gestört.
Summary: HW vulnerable, SW with substantial bugs in basic apps (maps, gmail, facebook) BB being reluctant to fix them. Had it for a year with the following conclusion: although physical keyboard is great, it's just not worth it for the phone's overall unreliability.
