Definitively worth the money!
Been using it for a few weeks now and it works great!
Camera is ok on daylight, flash is pretty weak so no party shoots, and it has HDR mode so you can take quite nice photos if you stand still ; same goes for video, 720p ok quality, no hiccups; screen is TFT so expect poor viewing angles, good brightness and also no touch screen problems; games/apps work great; the sound was a bit digitized but after last update they got that fixed.. so as I wrote in the beginning in its price range its awesome!
