Ok, so if you are of the opinion that a phone should be just for calling and texting i would suggest other devices, this one is not for you.
However if you are looking for a portable system that performs multi tasks at the very highest of levels then this could well be for you.
Is it big? Yes
Is it too big? No - not for what it does. The fact that so many people have been put off this phone for the fact that the screen is not multitouch boggles me - so what!?!? This phone can do everything that an iphone can do - and because of its operating system it will be able to do a lot more besides - and sizes of both handsets are extremely similar.
The battery life compared to the iphone is fantastic, so listening to music no longer drains your battery for calling. It looks good and feels good in the hand. Its slim and yet the 8mp camera works extremely well, plenty of apps toi get you started and many many more available free online.
A great phone in which the positives FAR outway the relatively small number of negatives. Well done Sony Ericsson
