Excerpt: I have several types of phones and I have 2 things to say about the new slider and the whole series. they don't have anything amazing and they don't have anything terrable about them. They are right in the middle everywhere. I have had all three and I am very satisfied. It has all your basics and nothing more (except maybe the tipe calculator) The only thing I found that stands out is its music player. it isn't an Ipod but its decent.
