  1. Little hard to get used to using a touch screen and sometimes I have to push the screen a few times for it to respond. The camera is really bad, I can not take a clear photo and it often freezes. So don’t buy this phone if you want it for the camera. The navigation is ok, but I have not tried it in the city. The fact that I can get all emails on it really handy.
    I rate this phone at 5/10

  2. Standby time 18 Days???? 9 Hours Talk Time.
    More like 1-2 Days.
    Lot of good points let down by 1.6 Android,
    with no avenue for official Upgrade.
    Garmin/Asus, so close,
    but no brownie points.
