Got this phone as an insurance replacement on my HTC desire hd. What a disappointment... even the supposedly better camera is not that good. The biggest irritation is its
slow response on the soft keys and the delay in opening apps. The various defaults in e.g. alarm settings are just silly. I miss HTC Sense
last year i heard about vanilla project for this phone, but no update until today...

popeye, 01 Mar 2013Don't bother buying this phone chaps. I bought this, as it was reasonably priced in comparison... moreDid you update your phone to ics? Do a swiping motion on the soft keys. The volume control have no problem like you mentioned and I don't believe that it's not user friendly. Sxs is my first android phone and I use it with ease. IMO timescape is more user friendly than tw

Those who made -ve comments and also who dropped on buying this phone will definitely pay after seeing this update...feel proud to b owner of this:)
if there is a non removable battery, what if the battery fades off over time & needs to be changed. Do we need to change the whole phone?

Had the phone for around 2 weeks now and the only two issues I have are the battery (which to be fair has improved a little since having the phone, could be better but it's tolerable for me). Second is the soft key response. While the touchscreen itself is spot-on, I find the three soft keys are not responsive as most of the time they require two or more presses to register a response. It seems that sliding up slightly on the button seems to work 90% of the time.
Apart from those two things, the phone is superb. The Walkman (music player) throws out some incredible sound even with my standared nokia earphones. Screen clarity is another plus and colours are vibrant. Games play really well NFS Most Wanted is one game that really shows this phone's ability to handle some really intense games, even though it's not quad core !
I bought it with 4.0.4. ics pre installed and it did not come with flashplayer and since flashplayer is no longer on the playstore, I had to google an apk version of it. However once I found one that worked, flash works great !
Another thing that I want to mention, is that although the phone lacks a removable battery as such, you can still relpace it by sliding of the back cover and using a screwdriver to open the panel which then opens from the side which you can then carefully remove the battery.
There is no sd card slot so rely on the on board memory.
Overall a superb phone due to it's £199 price tag via phones4u (and thats for the unlocked simfree version ;)
