Summary: i have used a large number of phones from nokia, samsung etc... but the Xphone II is the best one by far. im positive that its the best decission i have ever made. i would recomend it to everyone who want cl**** and style with no compromise of performance. and the features you can pack in it are limitless thanks to the windows platform.(only limit is the size of your memory card). the only thing i would like changed is the screen colours from 65k to 256k clolurs.
Pros: good solid phone. Just got it and so far im loving it. came from a HP Ipaq smartphone and the biggest thing that does it for me for the O2 is the size. So what if it doesnt have Wifi, spreadsheet, Word and a Stylus. When i had the Ipaq i realized i hardly used anyway. So so far the 02 is really something i enjoy.
Cons: the joystick lacks feels. sometimes its difficult to really know which is center. they should have made the joystick like the center navi key of the treo. Start up is a bit slow but im not such an impatient person so i forgive it for that. Coming from such a big phone im still readjusting because of the size. this phone would have been a 10 for me if not for the joystick gripe and the OS speed
Summary: Good compact professional looking phone. Much smaller and lighter than the other PDA/Phones. Does one really Need to view an Excel Spreadsheet on your phone on the go?? Hardly ever..so I think it's captured the basic useful features. Buttons are small but surprisingly manageable. Included Predictive Text helps heaps. Terribly let down by a flimsy joystick though. Hopefully next version will improve on this and also increase speed of OS a little.
Summary: this phone is awesome and yet it is small for the amount of features it has. it can be compared in size with non-smartphones. it is very convenient for alot of people and it fits in your pocket perfectly.
