MY overall rating of the phone is a 4  out of 5 stars.

Pros:

  • Large touch screen
  • touch flow UI
  • Windows mobile 6
  • Great Battery Life
  • Verizon Service
  • Accelerometer
  • Built in Games
  • 3.2mp camera
  • Sleek Design

Cons:

  • No Qwerty keyboard
  • No port for headphones while charging have to use extension.
  • Freezes at time

After taking this phone out the box i was very impressed. Windows mobile 6 looked very sexy with the touch flow 3d interface. In the programs menu, It comes packed with alot of programs like  Office Mobile,Adobe reader LE, YouTube App, Internet Explorer(2ND web browser, This phone ships with opera as the default web browser).


Typing a long text message with this phone can get very annoying to me. With the built in hand recognition tool in the message software  makes it sorta fun.  I guess i would have to say this isn’t the phone for a business man who sends lots of emails a day.

The 3.0  megapixel camera also impressed me. I love the panorama mode where you can take  3 photos and make them in to one landscape photo.

Listening to music and charging this phone can be a difficulty  this phone only  has 1 port. This is the charger/headphone. There is an adaptor that come with it, but why carry around a bulky adapter.

The Battery life , In three words “is KICK ASS” i left this phone on for about 2 weeks not doing anything(no programs or anything)  and just as im typing this review I’m getting a low battery notice.

So Overall I rate this a  4/5 … This Phone is avaliable now through Verizon!
