I recently got this phone on a contract with 3 and so far I like what I see. I does basically what an iPhone does, I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what this phone is capable of doing. There are so many applications available to download, that I don't know where to start. I have so far downloaded games and games only as I am enojying how well they play on it! I love snooker. Its addictive.

I am amazed at how at my fingertips I suddenly have Facebook, Twitter and a Sat Nav that I can use as I'm walking down the road. It's fantastic.

The layout of the phone is really nice, I was dubious about getting a touch screen as I wasn't sure if I would be able to use one without getting frustrated but I actually like this one. Its easy to use and when dialling a number, the numbers are big enough for a finger to press them so you dont start accidentally pressing the number 3 when you want to be pressing the number 2 which is one thing I really didnt like about touch screens.
There is also a nice little roller function button at the bottom of the phone so if you dont like the touchscreen this can be used as a mouse almost. I like the freedom of being able to choose.

The phone is a nice layout and I would describe it as a pocket laptop. It does everything. I really cannot fault the design, look or anything. Its a nice phone.

I will say though that the battery life is quite bad but the phone can be charged up through USB link so is easy to plug into a friends laptop if out or your own if indoors. It can also be used as a modem when plugged in as well, so an all round ok on that one. I am not sure about the robustness of this phone as it seems fragile. I'm terrified of breaking it, but we'll see on that one.

Overall its a nice phone, has a fairly decent camera and video recorder which is always nice and the apps for it are extremely good, so many I don't know where to start. I'm going to download BBCi Player tonight :)
