Well, it's been 3 weeks with this thing in my pocket, but a few days ago i noticed a "stuck pixel" on the screen, unfortunately. So i guess the price is right for the equipment they used to build it. The pixel though, not very noticable, only in the bright colors you can see it. I don't think the warranty would even cover it, they'll just send me the phone saying "nothing's wrong with it". So i won't even try.

I am still satisfied with my purchase actually. I won't allow this small thing to bug me.

Overall this phone is compared to it's price a real bargain!

Am planning to get one of this phone soon, ive been reading and watching reviews of it on youtube and it seems impressive to most... hope to read something about its weaknesses if theres any apart from the split second delay, wifi connection...

I forgot to add, about the quality of the images and videos, the only HD thing on the phone is the stickerr on the back side, because images and videos are...well let's just say that you can make better videos with mp3 player.

I'm disappointed with the phone, it looked promissing but after two weeks i'm selling it. The RAM is not 512MB, the phone shows something like 310MB(!?), when you open foursquare or some other cpu consuming app the phone get's hot as hell and it starts restarting. The restarting happens randomly, even when my phone is in my pocket, and quite often when i try to unlock it, the screen is black, buttons are glowing and then it restarts. I'm assuming that has something to do with the firmware but there is no update at the moment. The battery with normal usage last just one day, and the when you talk with someone you think the person is in a wine cellar. I really like the big screen, but it's not worth the compromise. If someone doesn't care about these things, i'm selling mine, send me an e-mail ;)

I reticently bought the phone, so this is what I think:
Rumors are: bad battery, bad WiFi connecting. 5 days of battery (after 3-4 charging), WiFi - 600Mb download speed on free public network,... THE PHONE IS EXCELLENT FOR THE PRICE AND FOR THAT IS OFFERING, you have much more expensive phones that are not offering nothing more and nothing special.
Speed is nice I can say that I was expecting much more sallower, just use GoLauncher or AWN, (just because I like them, and I think that they are much more useful).
Bad side??? AUDIO OUTPUT IS SILENT AND POWER ON/OFF BUTTON ON A BAD PLACE - not practical.

I've tried this cellphone. My friend have it. And I I'm not satisfied. It LAGS a lot and works very slow if you have installed only few applications. The only good thing on this smartphone is the big display. My friend is also complaining about the battery life.
