For a "budget" android phone, it is quite good. The call sound quality is more than adequate and Eclair 2.1 runs well. A couple of things I didn't like about the phone (and it is mentioned in the gsmarena review) are first, the way the camera works. Press the shutter to focus, THEN release to take a picture?! And how all photos seem to be stuck in portrait mode. A real pain the behind once you download them to your PC or upload them to a photo sharing site.
The second is how easily this thing runs out of space. Unless you're using froyo 2.2. you need a mod (pain in the behind "root" procedure) to be able to save apps on the SD card. Not sure if this is the case with all android phones, but if it is, then small wonder Apple's App store is leaps and bounds ahead of the Android Market. You can't encourage sales if everyone's phones have no space to store more apps.
awesome phone....brought android goodness to the masses....much much better that all the nokia boxes running symbian shit...
[deleted post]Hi, If you can't find this mobile and if you are possible to spend 10k more go for Galaxy S (i9000). A superb phone. Just advising you for the next version.

Ganesh, 18 Aug 2010Hey friend, can you check the notification ring volume and ring volume if you increase that it... moreHi Ganesh! Yes the volume setting is already at max. The review of GSMarena is true, the speaker volume is average, even below average in my opinion. But overall the phone is very good.

I bought it a week ago and and updated it to Eclair 2.1 after 2 days. So far so good. I changed the homescreen to LauncherPro. I also rooted it to be able to use live wallpaper, but using live wallpaper makes the phone laggy. Everything about this phone is good, except the ring volume. I missed a lot of incoming calls due to low speaker volume.

I had reached 11k msgs in my mobile, felt a bit slowness in my mobile so used SMS backup application (found from Market) to backup my msgs which pretty application gave me in a super XML format with more tags on it (planning to write a application for my desktop to read and display the XML msgs) deleted all my msgs, its back to business in speed. I said slowness only on using msgs. Really feeling bad only on the internal memory which we spica users face 180 MB.. Hmmm we can't do anything until we get install Froyo :)
