Behind this great 3.2" touchscreen is a great slide-out full QWERTY keyboard giving you four rows of letters, numbers and shortcut keys--pretty handy for texting or IMing. Just as convenient is the threaded messaging feature that makes it easy to follow conversations. The high-end processor (800 MHz) means higher-quality graphics and faster performance.

The keyboard is fine, but it doesn't make up for the fact that the overall response of this phone is SLOW. I tried an app killer and a battery saver on it, but those apps further degraded the phone's responsiveness. Upgrading to Froyo improved things a bit, but still, the freezes and memory problems remained. Moving data through USB is sketchy at best. It sometimes cuts off when moving large amounts of it. Luckily, none of my data was lost. (I even made one backup from the micro SD card to a Western Digital 1.5 TB hard drive just before getting rid of the phone.)
The camera is actually decent, considering that it lacks flash. It's better than the one that's on the LG Optimus V I now use, but I know my way through Photoshop, GiMP, etc. to fix photos if needed. Night mode actually works quite well. Video quality is passable, but with a poor video processor, it lags behind the LG. Speaking of which, Angry Birds and most other games run slowly, whereas on the LG, they run at a good (if not the absolute fastest) speed.
Still, it fails where I need it most. I needed it to do web, text, music, some gaming, and QR/UPC scanning. 3G was barely tolerable, at best. For me, this phone was a huge, EPIC FAIL.
Please save yourself the trouble, and don't buy this phone. Seriously.
I'll keep this quick with a pros and cons list.
~ QWERTY keyboard is easy to use and is pretty much the only responsive thing on this phone
~ Call quality is pretty good (but really, are there cell phones out there nowadays with bad quality?)
~ Virgin mobile has some great cheap plans (though this isn't really a feature of the phone at all)
~ Serious lag time when doing anything other than texting on this phone. Press the home button, blank screen for four seconds. When you receive a call, the caller ID usually doesn't show up until the third or fourth ring.
~ The only way to get this phone to operate somewhat normally is to uninstall any downloaded apps and just forget that it's an Android phone. Just use it for phone calls and texting.
~ This phone is obviously not meant to run Android well. It's hardware simply cannot keep up with the OS in the slightest.
My wife has the LG Optimus. It's fantastic, and every time I use it I realize what I'm missing out on. Overall, a terrible phone.
Another problem with the phone is it is not uncommon for it to take upwards of 10 minutes to receive text messages, 6 hours for picture messages. It also freezes up about 20 times a day, and crashes and reboots 5 times.
You simply cannot beat Virgin Mobile's no contract plans i have the 1200 min and unlimited text data email and web plan and 5$ for insurance (same as any paid insurance) monthly. I qualify for any contract I want but I am sorry this is so much better. no more arguing about billing matters every other month or having unexpected charges and additions to your plan that customer service cant explain... Virgin mobile has come a long way and if you tried them before and didnt lke them it really is time to try again.
You will save the money you pay for the phone on your bill in just a month or two.
I ordered from lee's electronics on amazon and he has new in box products and ships really fast!!!
