This phone represents outstanding value. Hitting the perfect balance between tech gadget and being user friendly, I am very impressed. In fact you can't help being absorbed by the whole experience, and I have found myself using all the features the phone has to offer as it is such fun to use.
The obvious reason for buying this phone is of course the touchscreen experience, and the user interface does not disappoint. The screens are clear and the icons well designed. On the home screen you add wigets of your choice, while a sweep of your finger takes you to contact widgets for quick access to your favourite numbers. The motion sensing can be used to align the widgets - just shake the phone and they line themselves up. This is also used in the games included on the phone, one where you shake to throw the dice. At the bottom are shortcuts to get to the organiser, photo/video gallery etc
Although it does not have 3G or WiFi it depends on whether you need them, as phones that do would cost considerably more. For me web on a mobile is not something I use often, but I found the WAP perfectly acceptable. This is a also good time to introduce the stylus which is housed in the base of the phone. The precision it gives is ideal when selecting links or buttons which are often small and very close together on a mobile web page. For all other navigating or texting your fingers are fine, but you can also use the stylus for drawing and in the handwriting recognition mode, a novel way of converting your writing into text. As long as you write upright with even pressure the software copes very well recognising your input. For text messaging, besides handwritten input you can use either standard numeric text input, or rotate the phone and a qwerty keyboard appears.
The 3MP camera does not have a flash, but takes decent photos in good light conditions. There are plenty of settings and after effect filters to play around with including morph which makes for hilarious portraits. There is also a burst mode to take 3, 6 or 9 pictures in quick succession, so you can select the best photo in a sequence. You can print your pictures via Bluetooth or transfer to a PC with the supplied usb cable.
This is the best phone I have owned, no question. Five Stars.
