Hello. SE really let me down. This model caused me alot of troubles. In brief main cons:
* Hangs alot, and by time, restarting may not solve it, and you have to take it to maintenance to re-install firmware and lose alot of data.
* Scrolling through screen isn't nice.
* Software compatibility is a problem. You cannot get original software easily from big sites like OVI. Nokia restricts it's symbian software for it's devices and SE don't give you any software store on the net, so you have to get un-trusted software and risk it.
* Battery life is less than average
* Earphone quality is less than average
* Materials used to make the phone don't last for long. After long use of keypad some keys start losing their frame.. Finishing easy to scratch, back cover doesn't fit nice... etc
* Modern Software not supported: No viber, Old version of Whatsapp, old version of Skype..
To be fair, some good things are:
* Fast CPU
* Very good camera that shoots well in all conditions
* Nice design (fancy look only)
* Feels familiar if you are a Nokia user
* Cost isn't very high, so you don't feel sorry to throw it into a wall or burn it after you get disappointed from it ;)
