I currently work for a mobile phone retailer and so spend an awful lot of time getting to grips with the new handsets as they come in, to be fair of late nothing has stood out, with the exception of this handset.
Firstly, yes the battery life isn't great and will probably need charging every 24 hours if you're a higher user (internet, calls, texts, downloading from the marketplace) but at the moment if you look across the board with smart phones each and everyone suffers from the same problem! as has been mentioned before there is an app available to stop any unnecessary applications therfeore improving the battery life.
The touch screen is very sensitive, but you can decrease the sensitivity of the screen, i was blessed with fat fingers and being heavy handed and as of yet haven't found the touch screen to be overly sensitive.
The processor in this thing is crazy! It is so fast, you will find that it outstrips even your wildest of immaginations! No flash with the camera isn't a major drawback, surely if you want a camera to do x, y, z then you would buy a camera to serve that purpose, the camera on a mobile phone is there to serve the purpose of capturing the odd moment here and there and so far i haven't found this one to be lacking.
The swype feature is great, again for someone with larger digits touch screens have never been user friendly, but with swype you just run your finger over the keys you want to type and it gives you all the potential options!
I have to admit i am certainly anti-i, but i would never claim this to be an 'iphone killer' they are the same, they just work slightly different, if, like me you fancy an alternative then this is the one!
