I have been using this phone for over a month,
I must say it really is a very useful intuitive phone
thanks to the Android 2.3.4 experience. I just bought it from a store and it was pre-loaded with 2.3.4 Gingerbread, no update needed.
PROS: For the price, great camera with flash, good screen quality even in sunlight it is usable, great android experience, no hangs etc. have installed great number of apps and all work flawlessly even in parallel like using music, gps app, etc. all at the same time.
CONS: Only con i can think of is the internal memory of 180MB which can fill up fast as there are some apps that can be installed only on internal memory and not SD card. I dont think not having a flash is a con at all, i didnt get held up coz of that till now.
Guys , just tell me that did this phone hangs or not ? Earlier i was eager to buy this but ur comments making me think once again . Plz suggest those guyz who are using it . Thnx in advance

But, using an Earphone is recommended when listening to get the rich experience.
Under normal usage, battery will last maximum of One day. Google some battery saving tips and you can make it last until 2 days with proper settings.
Internet Speed is completely depends on your network. If you have a good 3.5G coverage, you can expect a good speed.

Anonymous, 23 Nov 2011Can someone post pointers on how to turn off background apps or internet access on this phone ... moreI found android booster was the best tool, just regularly check it and click the optimize button, for example after turning off wifi, optimize it and all processes will be terminated.
Additionally i found some apps on internal storage tend to create a massive data file (not cache) and this in turn kept causing phone to run out of memory from one moment to another.
also there is a tool called app brain which offers a a filter for apps that can be installed to the SD card, you will have to stay away from any crap apps that only install to the internal storage.
also i have tried something else, which may improve the phone.
when i got a new sd card i create 2 partitions, the first partition which is for the apps/data i formatted with diferent sector size after some research (finding the right value seems to impact speed), but last in the 2nd partition i created a linux swap partition, this should theoretically improve the phone as the swap partition will act as additional memory. There may be some issues when un-mounting the SD card but i have not yet needed to do so, i guess one can simply power down the phone to take out the SD card.
if you want to disable internet access follow steps below...
go to menu > settings > wireless and networks > mobile networks > and unckeck use packet data....
dats it...... if u want to use internet access in future just check the same option.

Then connect your phone to Kies, you will recieve the upgrade automatically. Follow the on-screen guide accordingly.
*If Kies didn't notify you about the upgrade, it means that Gingerbread is not officially released for your region yet.
