I have been using this phone for the past one month. So far i have not come across any sort of issues with this phone. Definitely one of the best looking smart phones out there. I liked the video quality more than the still image quality and the 16x digital zoom works great. Live wallpapers run smoothly, but remember they drain a lot of battery. Battery back up is pretty decent with the charge lasting for more than a day with a normal day's use. Games run with no issues at all. The best phone i have used till now in the mid range. Some may feel that the screen size is a little small, but the resolution compensates for it. Supports only mp4 and 3gp formats of video which is quite a heartbreak for a phone with such a good hardware specification. The external speaker volume is not upto the expected levels, you may tend to miss a few of your calls in the worst case. I forgot to mention about the home key LED...which does a good job by reminding you of the notifications till you attend to them. In total this one is a pretty good phone with great performance in the mid range. I wont say its the best in the segment but you wont regret for buying this beautiful piece of technology.

This unit has very bright light which you can turn on yourself, but this phone has Exmor sensor which makes requirement of flash in low light virtually 0. No flash seemed like a big deal before i got the phone,but after taking great photos in a dimly lit concert now i realize why they skipped auto flash.
Still don't understand why there is no proper flash for camera, you have to turn on the video light...

Any one who wants to buy this phone,have no doubts about it,ive been using it for 2 days now,its flawless.I am sticking with 2.3.3 and not updating it to 2.3.4 yet,nothing is broken here so it need no fixin.
It feel great in the hand,solidly built,no creaks,good weight to it.
The supplied MH410 greenheart headphones sound great.
Screen is perfectly visible in the sun,and its colors are superb (better than iphone 4).So sharp that all fonts are legible.This screen is NOT small.portrait keyboard works well too.Music player looks beautiful on the screen.
Browsing is great,angry birds runs perfect.
Call volume is good,loudspeaker is good.Skype works great.
I have not found a flaw yet :)
