Basically a good master piece. I like the phone. BUT the normal things what I experienced was, getting hanged oftenly & very poor battery life.

Back to the shop after 2 weeks.
Its main problem is about the really small amount of memory that causes latency (all the time),freezes sometines, and the drop down of the battery in one day.
It's really a pity ; could have been a good mobile phone. Avoid it

This is got to the worst phone I have ever purchased. So much so that I had to threaten taking the retailer to court. The faults and problems are as listed:-

1. Mic cuts out after a few moments on most calls made.

2. Battery life appaling, i got 2 hours one day despite charging it up over night.

3. Slow Slow Slow is word here, software applications are like waiting for paint dry.

4. Camera rubbish

5. Touch screen hopelessly poor and recsessed so you cant get to the corner icons!

6. Contact list hard to navigate

7. This phone was supposed to had GPS Maps built into it, well it hasn't. It has GPS but you need to be an expert at orienteering to read it. Also maps impossible to download as no one would support it.

In a word....RUBBISH! AVOID IT!!!

the speaker is very bad, also every time hangs and unable to reset using the stylus, to restart the mobile we have to open the battery.

If you are going to use IGO8 (GPS) yourll need to delete the un-used resolutions in the data.zip file, otherwise the program sucks all ur memory. Yourll also need to tweak the sys file aswell (reserve mem etc)

If you get this phone upgrade to the latest ROM from the ETEN website (410 currently)...dont install ANY e-ten apps on setup. Also install the SdkCerts.cab and FISH_TOUCH_FIX2.cab (google yourll find it). This should leave you with 30Mb free ram and your phone working ok.
