Hi
I am seeking clarification on specifications:
I purchased this phone after reading on GSM Arena that the phone supports 3G frequencies: 850, 900 and 2100Mhz, as well as lte.
Most important to me is 3G: 850Mhz (called 'nextG' by Telstra in Australia).
Now that I received the phone it reads on the package:
"HSPA+: HSDPA 42,2 Mbps / HSUPA 5,76 Mbps
Bi-bande (900/2100 Mhz)"
May I assume that this phone does not support 3G/next G: 850Mhz then?

Is your phone rooted or are you using it in hot weather/ direct sunlight or are you using a bulky case that stores heat?
If none of the above maybe get the phone looked at by a professional.

The review is quite accurate. Howevephonere are a few things that were not meantioned.
No option to add shortcuts to the lockscreen.
Impossible to change bottom dock shortcuts (phone , contacts etc.)

Purchasing this phone after my Htc Inc S died I was reluctant to buy a non Htc as I had gotten used to Sense over the years. Touchwiz does the job though. Its not Sense but it gets the job done.

Things that the reviews meantion that I can confirm:
Although the screen has a low rez its still a very good picture
The battery life is amazing on this phone
Under good light conditions the camera does a good job but otherwise its pretty shoddy.

Hope my 2cents help making a informed decision on weather to buy this phone.
I am personally very happy with it for the retail price I paid and would recommend it to people that are on a budget and dont want to fork out for the latest and greatest phones.
As long as you arent a photo buff this phone will do the job imo.
