Corby II is good for an average phone. And if you want a phone which looks quite the same but a dazzling UI and OS then try the Galaxy Mini. But suggestions aside, there are many things you have to get used to, like the Numeric Keypad instead of a QWERTY Keypad. You will NOT like the builtin browser, because it is almost non-functional. Be careful for widgets because when browsing, you will be forced to close everything. All the pre-built ringtones are quite pathetic, though, one of the most insipid collection of ringtones produced by Samsung. Wi-Fi is one of the BIGGEST advantages you will get. The User Interface is heavily customizable as you can download themes and fonts, but it is quite laggy too, Too bad it doesn't have multitouch! You don't get accelerometer either (even though GSMArena.com said it has) so you don't have much to show off with. The phone looks beautiful; a candy for the eye, though not as attractive as the RAZR2 V8/V9/V9x. Battery life is very good, as is browsing with Opera Mini 4.3, but Wi-Fi seems to consume more of it, though. The phone is amazingly sturdy yet plastic, which is quite weird, actually. The Music Player is brilliant, as you get features, like Music Recognition for searching similar songs. An impressive feature phone overall. And for that I rate this phone 7.5/10.
It is a very good phone.
Its camera is very good and its screen is sensitive and accurate.
Its browser is also fast and can connect to wifi easily.
The only bad thing about it is that its keypad is not qwerty.

namqul96, 02 Oct 2011it is soft touch or hard touch?? - Its soft touch. kinda sensitive.
The touch feel is quite good, lacks camera features & smooth games, but overall tis a nice and cheap phone to get used to!. ..
please tell me how to activate the privacy code in messages. PLEASE...
Low Internal Memory... Much better that if we install apps we have an option to be save on memory card not on the internal memory since this can cause low memory while more apps are installed.
Touch senstivity is awesome but its camera quality is not so good as nokia 5233
