I've hand hands on experience with this phone where i work, we get hands on play with all new phones that have been released. I've found with this phone, its one of the most game friendly phone you can buy. if your not much of a gamer then this phone is'nt for you. having psp games have moved gameing to a new leveling the controles are brilliant, fits pefect in your hand. only thing is with memory if you mannage to fill your memory up then it will have a slight delay. but all in all this phone is ideal for gameing on the move.

This looks like an extremely good phone and will more than likely swap my 3GS for this!! However I'd just like to add where GSM said that its whopping 175gram weight was too much for even one handed every day use!!! Get down the gym how weak are you!!!!! lol
Sensational phone, wont usually buy Mark 1 products because of bugs and such but Ill probably end up getting this!!

I will get this one, and finally upgrade from my G1 brick. I love games and tried a lot of stuff. And honestly most of games so far in Android have been crap, with some exceptions, but now I see finally many cool titels coming and all optimized for the Play. Adding keys is really cool idea for a smart phone, why no one did it before? This is very exciting!

I've had this a little over 2 weeks now, and I dont know what you are talking about, i have an 8Gb card rammed with videos and video and was playing Assasins Creed while listening to Metallica for 5 hours straight on a flight last week. No jerkiness what so ever...

Suggest you try a little more, rather than make assumptions based on a 5 miunte demo no doubt in a shop.
