Design: 8 out of 10
Great looking phone, clean and simple. I think it could be perhaps be a little thinner or at least lighter, and a little shorter. Overall its a pretty bulky phone. Also, the hinge seems a little flimsy.
Features: 7 out of 10
To be honest, if you're using this phone outside of the Vodafone network (like in America), you're missing most of the key features like the GPS and browser. The GPS wasn't a big deal to me, but not being able to use the browser was kind of a bummer. The biggest disappointment though is the lack of MP3 support. Not being able to use my own ringtones is a huge disappointment to me (3GP 's quality is absolutely terrible), and I'm currently trying to figure out how to convert my MP3s to Mpeg-4 aac+, which is the format of the Chaku-Uta ringtones, and I'm not even sure if it'll support that.
Everything else program wise is pretty much standard. The large screen is nice, and the camera seems to perform well also.
Performance: 8 out of 10
As a regular phone it performs well, but theres really nothing too special about it. The lack of support for 850mhz is also something that American buyers need to remember. I get decent reception, but definitely not as good as my Cingular 3125, which I usually get full bars everywhere I go.
I bought this phone because I found it for a good price and wanted to have a phone for when I next go to Japan. If you're only planning on using it in America and were hoping to get a "super advanced Japanese phone", you should probably just save your money. If you're looking for a Japanese phone just because its Japanese, this one is a good choice.
if yuo want to experience watchings mtv clips here is the quick guide on activating your mms/grps/streaming..
for 3g settings for smart users only:
set N90 ----send it to 211
go back to the main screen and don't touch anything even if there is a message just don't read it and keep it onto the main screen and never touch anything until you the mms/gprs/streaming settingswill arrive...and if it asks for a pincode just type in 1234....after that just turn off your phone and turn it on again...try to go in vodafone live and it should direct you to smart hmepage.....
note:you should have a load at least P15...
if you have some few questions just try to text me onm y number 09184219142...if I can't reply onto your message it means got no load :p hehehe...

I read it can do mp3 ringtones but only under 300k...is this 300kbps quality or 300kb size? as it is pointless for me to buy a phone that does not support mp3 ringtones or ringtones of real music as opposed to polyphonic/midi etc.
