Very great phone. Cons: No regular mp3 jack. Found no documentation on XDA about how to root. I would like to change the ROM.. Anyways, is a great phone.

I got this phone last week for 340$ and my initial assessment is that this phone is really nice, with a good finish, so I would give 10/10 for design. Otherwise, everything is fairly good and I give my point of view : 9/10 screen ; 8/10 camera ; 7/10...
