I just bought the phone 4 days ago and I have to admit, it's working great as expected. First of all please note that it comes with Froyo 2.2.1 (CSL Mi300 model) as stock ROM. And note that I immediately flash the Phantom Sky Rev v1 ROM Froyo 2.2.2. I also tested Cyanogenmod 7 Gingerbread 2.3.3, but it was unstable.

First of all, let's talk about design, it's not very bad but not good either, it's plastic, but come from a low price range, it is as expected. But, the trade off the cheap body with a very good mid-high end hardware, Again the basic, call quality is good, 3G / HSDPA speed is great, and the battery life vary from the ROM you use. Again for me, I get 1 and a half day of nominal usage (3G + WiFi and several calls) when using Phantom Sky Rev1 ROM.

Let's talk geek now. Overclocking? Yes! It can reach up to 800MHz, the same as the much newer Samsung ACE, for less the money. Again, proven by Quadrant benchmark with a staggering 1022 points. Much better then an HTC Legend or any other mid range phone.

App2SD are working great for this phone also, unlimited app storage, what more can I say?

Life wallpaper? Sure can, but expect a little less battery life when using live wallpaper, same as any other android phone out there.

Screen? It is indeed a finger print magnet, but a simple good quality screen protector with anti scratch and anti glare is good investment in any touch base phone.

Hackable? Yes, it is one of the most modded and supported phones in the android community. Also known as Commtiva z71, this phone are support officially by the Cyanogenmod team, care to say more? Nuff said :D

Overall, I would recommend this phone for average user on budget, and also for android developers and hackers looking for a cheap phone to play :D For me, this is a toy from heaven. Again, don't judge the phone buy it's brand, I repeat, don't. The hardware itself is use by Gigabyte Gsmart G1305 and Motorola XT502, the same hardware use by Gigabyte and Motorola, two of the best manufacturer, does that means low quality hardware?

Notes

Pros :

- Good battery life with good ROM
- Mainstream screen resolution 320x480 HVGA
- Great color reproduction, a little less good than first gen AMOLED, but better than old LCDs found in HTC Hero
- Great modding scene, full support and update (Gingerbread latest)
- Acceptable game performance
- Average GPS speed and accuracy
- Vast amount of apps available thanks to the HVGA resolution. Compared to latest Samsung Galaxy Mini
- Great size, I'm not a fan of oversize phones, but not too small either, Mi300 is just right.
- Good touch response, I can type really fast with 5% fault in portrait orientation, using HTC_IME mod KB
- Dedicated Call/end call button, nice.
- Responsive proximity sensor as well Accelerometer
- great speaker overall.
- Matte colored body, a good welcome.

Cons :
- RAM, only 172MB usable RAM, compared to 256MB in spec.
- Internal memory are a little tight although App2SD solve the problem temporarily.
- The charging port/ mini usb is at the left side, compared to bottom on most phones.
- It would be nice to replace the trackball with a dedicated back button, who uses trackball?
- Plastic design, squeaks and not so solid build.

Overall this is a good phone, and I have to say, CSL does a great job porting this to malaysian users.
