i've been using this phone for about 2 weeks now and i could say that i've made the right decision, i've been choosing between wildfire s, optimus net and optimus hub.
i wouldnt even compare it to the galaxy y bec its just too cheap looking and the screen is just awful.
i have no problems with the explorer's screen, its clear even out on a sunny day.
the explorer is definitely faster and more responsive than any of the other phones i mentioned, probably bec it was using a newer snapdragon chipset.
the memory space on paper said 90mb but after i did a factory reset it gave me 150mb free space to use. most of the apps that i needed can be xferred to the sd anyway like office, file managers, pdf apps and games. came also with a task manager pre-installed.
battery life is alright. with casual txt, calls, wifi and games it gives me about 2-3days without a battery app or anything like that. switching to gsm only and disabling packet data help save the battery.
the ui is better than anything else, thats what i didnt like on lg and on any plasticky samsungs.
htc is also known for build quality. the phone feels just right, looks classy compared to the optimus net and optimus hub.
the camera is just alright, been using it for taking casual pictures. it not the best but it does the job. if you're looking for an android phone that takes great quality pics as well, be prepared to shell out more cash.
the price of the wildfire s and explorer here is almost the same. so if you have to choose between the two you have to think if you want a better cam or overall better performing phone.
hope this helps.

ahmed, 30 Dec 2011what does it mean with Internal :90 MB storage, 512 MB ROM, 512 MB RAM?it simply means that this phone sucks... lol....
ahmed, 30 Dec 2011what does it mean with Internal :90 MB storage, 512 MB ROM, 512 MB RAM?That means that 512mb of speed (RAM IS SPEED). The iPhone 4g Has 512mb of speed (RAM). RAM= RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY, the more the ram the less the lag. The 512MB ROM is READ-ONLY-MEMORY. Which is the android firmware. The 90MB is the storage u get to use.
Hope this helped u.
