Got one from Optimus, in Portugal, and I'm very happy with it.
It replaced my "old" HTC P3600, but the feature set is even better, for a third of the price.
Battery holds for 2 to 4 days if only on stand-by (wi-fi, gps and 3g disabled), but it only lasts 1 day if you give it an intensive use (which is the same as my old phone).
I'm waiting to see if the official Android 2.1 (or 2.2) upgrade comes out... with that it would be fantastic.
The plastic cover is a bit "crappy", but with all the great features it has they hat to cut the cost somewhere.
Nevertheless, it's excellent value for money!!!
At the time of the post 179€ in Portugal, Android version 1.6 with possibility to expand to 2.1 or 2.2
Quite fast... some hicups on keyboard, 5Mp camera is as most phones... low quality.
Conclusion: Fantastic phone for a low price.
