After 2-weeks of using this phone I can honestly say that I'm not dissapointed at all, and I'm not crying for any cent I spent on it.
The only "issues" I can adress on this phone is a "small" screen, (but as someone already mentioned, if you decided to buy this phone, that is something you probably don't mind), and poor battery life.
Speaking about it's "hardware" side, it is beautifully designed, and perfectly weighted, so it is really satisfaction to use it. Qwerty keyboard is a very nice adittion too, and after few days of using, I get totally familiar with it. Light sensor is a good thing also, and it will save some of your battery life.
On the software side, I can only say that it haven't let me down yet. I had some problems with upgrading from 1.6 to 2.1 android, but it was related to my usb port probably. I didn't noticed any issues that other people have mentioned here. First, I must say that this is one of the fastest smartphones that I had in my hand. And after many installed applications, it's not showing any signs of slowing down. And it never stacked in this 14 days (maybe not some great time, but nevermind). There are some really great apps in Android market so you can expand it's functionality in many ways. And it's working flawlessly with every application I installed in it.
Someone will be dissapointed with camera options maybe, but to be honest, who is using the mobile phone for some serious zoomed photo shooting. And beside that, camera quality is on top lever really.
Based on my short experience, I can only say that I love this little beast.

The phone is powerfull but ... moreI actually noticed the same thing, the signals seem weaker now after upgrading to 2.1 ,, my calls have dropped a couple of times in the same place at home, which never happened before... also agree, screen size now seems to be small, but remember, you probably bought this powerful little thing in the first place due to its handy size... and that is an advantage too..

hi i want to buy this mobile
how about the sound and camera in this mobile?
plz let me know the opinion to buy this mobile
I have used this set for 5 months now. here are my findings.
1. The phone is powerfull but u ll obviously overload it now and then.. some times the response is so slow that i had to remove battery to start it again later.
2. The signal receiver seems to be very bad. Sometimes unable to connect to network.
This has become worse after upgrade to 2.1 update1
I even tried changing the network provider still the same.
3. There is bug in FM radio software. sometimes even if the radio is running there wont be any icon in the top, if u try to stop it going to the app, it wont let u in. this has happnd some 3-4 times till now.
4. Screen size is something u ve to consider before buying. the screen is very small, looks cute in the begining, later u get bored the small sized screen.
5. The OS is still 2.1 Update1. not sure when the next update will come. Since market has other phones with latest OS, this is a huge draw back.
6. The key board is very handy, makes it very easy to chat/e-mail/msg.
Let me know if any oe you have faced any of the above issues.
