Summary: I bought this phone as a stop gap between contract phones. I usually make it through a contract but my HTC Inspire just suddenly stopped working...13 months in...too late for warranty. Nice features, although only 3G I though I could handle a little slower speed for 6 months...WIRELESS CONNECTION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH AT&T SYSTEM. Works as a phone and when wi-fi is available but that's it. I'm switching to T-Moble anyhow so we'll see...maybe it will work there.
Summary: I really liked this phone. It has good Wifi coverage, bluetooth works nicely, nice form factor, decent call quality, Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. The only problem is that I couldn't get the micro SD card to work. I tried 4 different cards. I had to return the phone. I am considering getting a replacement phone and I'll update my review if it works. I bought this phone from iZoneDeals in Canada.
Summary: Received this phone yesterday. A good phone for the price, but was disappointed to see that the 2GB microSD was not included in the package. This should have been a part of the standard package because even the basic/standard applications on the phone refuse to run without a microSD installed. I had to use my own from another phone just to get started with this one.
Summary: This is a great phone, very good for people who are starting with android, but the product description said it works in 3G 850Mhz, but that information is false, It works on 3G 900Mhz. So be careful if you are looking for a specific 3G baseband.
Summary: This phone works well, it is a good choice to enter the world of the smartphones... but: - it makes awful photos - it has an old version of Android and will not be upgraded, so I rooted it to install Cyanogen mod 7 and a special linux kernel allowing to tweek the processor's frequency (higher during calculations, lower during idle). I had absolutely no experience of this kind but found well documented websites and the process has been quite smooth and easy.
Excerpt: This was my first touchscreen mobile phone, and seemed to work quite well when I purchased it at first. I've had it now for 7 months, and about 4-5 months ago it began lagging, didn't scroll or switch between screens smoothly at all, unlike other people I know who own the iPhone, or the Samsung touch screens.
Pros: It looks good, Nice bright display, Has a good weight, doesn't feel cheap, Battery life is decent, Durable
Cons: Lags, Scrolling isn't fluid, Does things on its own in my pocket, even when I've locked it, Sometimes while texting the letters get stuck when I tap them, and I end up with a text message full of "eeee's" or whatever, GPS doesn't always work
Fair to good device, poor battery life, not a bad value for the money.

Summary: Not a bad basic Android phone. Runs out of memory quite fast, after just a couple of added apps. Then becomes REALLY slow. Also, battery life is very poor. I haven´t yet tried to turn 3G off, but also the high amount of bloatware (that supposedly you can´t uninstall unless you root it) slows it down. Overall, I like it, but could be much better just with a few twists. If you dare to root it, you´ll probably get a much better experience.
