"Very slow!"

I have had this phone for 5 months now and have found it to get progressively worse, so much so that it is now so slow that it often takes up to 5 minutes to just unlock the screen. Whilst it has good features, such as the touch screen which improves ease of use, i find the handset as a whole to be slow. I have also found that the battery will not even last for a day meaning i have to carry the charger around with me! The only positives that i have found with this phone is the appearance which is probably due to how similar it is to the iPhone, as well as the variety of apps that are available to download. I will be switching to an iPhone asap!
