Had an email to say my replacement is on it's way. Hopefully the dim quality of my camera was because of a faulty batch and I don't get one the same!!!
With the first delivery though, I did feel the build quality was good, kept getting out of my pocket just to look at. Also agree that it could have done with a lens cover as my last phone was a Satio and it had one. But the phone felt sleek and the aluminium shell is a nice touch.
As the Satio was my first smart phone (which had the last incarnation of Symbian) I haven't tried any other operating systems to compare but the OS on this seems smooth and does the job. The facebook widget (to me anyway) is pretty cool to show statuses on the homescreen and the browser access the web. Slow? Not sure but works. I don't do all that much web surfing on my phone. Who sang that song for this band? Google and it works! lol Also downloaded quite a few apps and they all worked.
Media player works fine and sounds good with the earpieces that came with the phone.
Got it for phone use (was clear and worked), music (was happy), camera (was disappointed so returned for an exchange, also HDMI didn't work) and to be, what word shall I use? trendy? No! Stylish? No! erm different? erm yes I suppose (the reason I didn't jump on the iPhone and Android Phone bandwagons) but no so different as to stick my sim in a 15 year old brick with an arial the size of my little finger.
Hope it is good when I get mine back and hope your experience is good and this one you have doesn't die too!
