Summary: I was 10 years old when I got my first phone. My parents always tried to get me the best quality phones. At first I had my sisters hand me down phone; it was a Virgin mobile pre-paid flip phone. It was the newest one out at the time, because flip phones were "in". After that phone I had a Samsung flip phone, then a Sidekick III. After my Sidekick III, my parents brought me a Sidekick Slide, then a Nokia phone. After my Nokia phone I had gotten the blackberry bold.
Great hardware, but horrible software and tech problems kill this phone

Excerpt: Interface is fairly quick and handles multitasking well, also very good for gaming. The device itself is very thin and sleek with strong glass face. The camera stills and 1080p video looks great, but the software running it is slow and cumbersome. Signal reception is kinda poor, but WiFi calling saves call quality and dropped calls. GPS reception is especially terrible, however, and the phone will often take 5-10 minutes just to find you when using the navigation.
Pros: Thin, sleek and well-built, Great hardware, WiFi calling great for gaps in signal coverage, Touch display is sturdy and provides sharp image, Handles gaming, videos easily even while multitasking
Cons: Poor reception, particularly GPS, Unresponsive touch interface, most noticeable with keyboard, Doesn't ship with Gingerbread, no word on when it will be ready, HORRIBLE bloatware, kills performance, eats up space and can't be removed, Buggy and prone to crashing (probably result of poorly programmed bloatware), This is T-Mobile's best in show? Wouldn't know it from lack of updates, Seriously: bloatware really kills performance, T-Mobile shot themselves in the foot wit...
