  • Conclusion: Overall, I quite liked the device. Aside from the mucky camera the rest is rather respectable. Originally the handset debuted at £250, which is a bit steep. You could pick up an HTC Desire for that. However, it has dropped considerably and you can even find it for around £210.

  • Pros: Beautiful appearance, top notch Android OS, excellent camera and exciting menu appearance
  • Cons: Lack of power, unavoidable touch sensitive buttons, laggy scrolling and temperamental battery life.
