i am very pleased with this phone. i got it last november and i love using it everyday. i updated it to mango 7.5 without hassle. i just hope battery life is longer than 1.5-2 days. i can honestly say that it is better than my previous android phone in terms of performance and style. :-)
the amoled screen is really the wow factor and its responsiveness even with a screen protector. calls are clear and the bluetooth communication with other devices like headset is flawless. one gripe... i hope is was released in southeast asia... i got mine from the us and here in the philippines, we have almost no sellers of accessories. have to buy from ebay. :-)
I ecently bought yhis fone from ebay (Rs 13,220 after discount). The phone is really nice and the bright and crisp display wins your heart. But you will have to put up with some minor irritants asscociated with Win 7.5 such as forced use of Zune Software for update and file transfer. MS could have given Windows explorer (like PC) and solved the file transfer issue. But they chose to force ZUNE software upon users (taking a cue from Apple?).
For those who are new to smartphone, they will have to live with the fact that one needs to make several taps on the screen before making a call etc etc.(irritating at times)
The win 7.5 interface is nice but one needs to understand the features of Win OS to make full use of it.
Win Marketplace has many free apps now which are easyly available in marketplace. mercifully you don't have to depend only on zune to download and install apps (need wifi or GPRS).
Its value for money as no other 4" super amoled phone is available at this price (bear in mind no warranty of any sorts). The warranty version (omnia W) costs appox 18+K in india but with 3.7 inch screen only.
I have a minor problem after 7.5 update. The recent call History is not indexed as per the latest calls sequence. it follows some strange logic. Can some one advise me , how to index the call history based on last call(dialeed/received) first displyed basis?

However downloading and installing ZUNE software in your PC (a must) can be an irritant (but this has nothing to with seller or the phone).
There are some irritants wih 7.5 which i hope i can resolve. For example the recent call list is not indexed as per latest call sequence. I have not figured out the logic yet.
how to send n receive files using bluetooth?
this phone is so complicated that i can't find my contacts and how to delete anything
