I had it, very good phone but only one big issue. At wake up(when you want to unlock the screen) the touch goes crazy!!! Making ghost touch every where and if you manage to unlock it will start to on app. After some minutes everything will go normal. THE PROBLEM IS ONLY AFTER WAKE UP!! NOT POWER UP.
I don't think it's a touch hardware issue or it will do it always while using it, It's annoying when you have to pick up a call and the touch start by passing the calls or pressing mute stuff while answering.
I both it in Russia after searching it for a while and I thought the cold weather could be the reason, but taking it home at 22°C the issue is still there.
If it's not for the screen wake up/unlock issue, this phone is a fantastic deal for the price. I will be travelling again to Russia, might take the same phone again or go for the W8560. For now only Philips is giving such specs,battery, dual-S,HD res in this form factor. I WILL CROSS MY FINGERS :-D

The battery is exceptional, it takes 2 days to run out of battery. I test phones for a living and non other device give me that battery efficiency.

With such specs and a good price they can definitely compete, and will of course have success, companies usually fail when they go Apple, never do that Phillips or you will go down the same way you came.

Quite good spec. if we can see the ram and the screen size the processor is also good not the best, lets see if the philips can make the place in the market for mobile

This phone looks great with cool features. I wonder who are those people specialized in down voting phones. 3 votes with an average of 4.4??? sad!!!
