Summary: Inexpensive phone - you get what you pay for. Battery life is below par. Some days, even though I don't "use" the phone (3G on, WiFi off, no calls) I need to recharge by 2 PM to make sure I can make it through the rest of the day. Don't bother downloading a Task Killer as it's not needed with the Android 2.x system (it has built-in task handling that puts unused tasks in a sort of sleep mode). Memory is very limited.

Pros: Touch screen. Color (teal blue). Google syncing.
Cons: After six months, phone no longer recognized battery and wouldn't charge. But, when the phone was reset to original, suddenly it recognized the battery again and charged fine. 2 phones later, same issue, but they don't get it's a software problem.
Pros: I was looking for a phone that has a qwerty keyboard because I am not a fan of virtual keyboards. This phone has a decent keyboard at the bottom yet it is still a touch screen phone.
Cons: When I got this phone I was so disappointed. First of all, I had an Optimus, which runs so much faster it just doesn't have the Qwerty keyboard. The Replenish also is NOT COMPATIBLE with several of the android apps, which for some reason, no one at Sprint

Pros: Bright screen, good feedback/vibration. Good for a 3G. Excellent for calls. Volume is great (almost too loud @ max). Picture & camera are excellent. I'm not an App guy (I do my heavy lifting on PC) however droid App market is impressive & even win
Cons: Very poor architecture esp. when compared to iphone, windows mobile OS. Both keyboard & touchscreen keyboard are cramped. Android OS very unintuitive (this from somebody who has been using computers/hand held devices for decades.) Feels light. No batt
Pros: I like the combination of a keyboard and a touch screen. I am weaning off of a BlackBerry and it adds some comforting familiarity. The screen is responsive. The keyboard is a decent size, keys not too small. Lots of room for app icons on 5 available home
Cons: The battery life is awful - even if you turn off all power drains (Bluetooth, WiFi, sync, bright screen, etc), the battery lasts 2 - 3 hours even just sitting there. Plus it takes at least 6 to 7 hours to charge. Unless this is a defective battery, I'm no
