Very useful phone. Beautiful features for a frindly price. however I am disappointed in only one aspect. Battery. Is it just me or does everyone have to recharge on a daily basis? Sometimes I have to recharge twice. Strangely, the recharge takes a very short time for the battery to be fully charged. Another question, how do i forward sms messages?

people, we want your opinions and experiences with the phone not questions. for questions o to your dealer.
Roz, 21 Feb 2011Cool. only the battery life abit of dissapointmentConstant thumbing of the ideos just like any other phone will limit the duration for standby to a bit less than expected, phone calls and constant texting will also contribute to this.
If you have a laptop, or you work with a desktop, i'd suggest you keep the data cable to the phone plugged in at all times, and whenever you are not using the phone plug it in, while doing the long project/work reports, the phone will charge and thus limit your risk of going offline thanks to not charging your phone.
Various task killers and juice defenders are available in the market, download these so you may be able to extend the battery juice for that extra hour o so.
Using 2G networks when not doing data is also a good idea, switching off the wifi when not in use also helps push the battery to that extra couple of hours.
The phone is the best that could have ever dropped onto my hands, for just about $100 I have ease that i could only dream about, however, there is always a shortfall as far as a good product is concerned, but this should not bring down the praise it trully deserves.
The apps that it comes with pre-installed are for everyone and anyone's use, they are tools that have helped in so many ways.
The wifi integration has helped ease the wireless router configuration procedures that needed me to carry my laptop everywhere i went.
Monitoring the speeds on my WLAN has never been this easy, not mentioning administering my mail server.
Email, text and other notifications come in with ease of access for the said notification, be it a facebook alert, an sms from a loved one or an email from the boss, testing the mail transmission and delivery times, its all on the thumbtips.
Taking photos, listening to music, watching & taking videos, is all made easy.
The number of apps available for use is overwhelming, key apps are found easy in the market and installing them is as easy as coffee in the coffeemaker.
In a matter of just 2 weeks i have at least two people from every department having this phone, and its a lot of fun for them.
The short fall is that the processor is a 528, this means you can't have flash, a search in the market proved this, if only Adobe could do flash for this sized processor...
the games are a breeze to install and they play well, eg. pool,angry birds...
all said and done, i still think it was 8499 - 1000 - 1000(600mb data) = 6499/80 = $81.2375 well spent.

You will get the viewer on android market which supports xls, doc, ppt and pdf, includes office 2007. If you want to be editing these, an upgrade at $15 will do.
