4 out of 5 eggsCan't really do better at the price

Pros: First of all, the phone is among the cheapest of the newer Android phones and it doesn't even feel like a budget phone. It's got a great design which is merely the higher-end phone's design shrunk down. It's really a standout phone with its multi-color light-up notification bar and changeable bottom cap... if you're into that. Nearly everything works as expected. And yes, it does make calls quite excellently. It comes with Gingerbread but the Ice Cream Sandwich update should be right around the corner.

The screen is small, but very sharp and adequately bright. The battery life is quite amazing and won't leave you permanently tethered to a charging source all day. Even if you did manage to run the battery down quickly, it charges to full quickly.

Cons: The biggest con is the lack of expansion. There's no microSD slot so consider how you will use the phone. The size is a bit small so large hands may have troubles. The true notification light near the front-facing camera is really dim and the beautiful light-up bar isn't really used to its fullest out-of-the box. The bottom cap is seriously a pain to get off so choose which color you want and stick with it.

Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased with this being my first Android phone. It has more features than I need and doesn't give me any troubles. The light-up bar problem can be solved with an app which I highly recommend every user of this phone to download.

Also, the lack of SD expansion was not a dealbreaker for me because I honestly am using the phone for texting and taking pictures. Even with my app addiction, I'm hardly using any of the 6GB i'm able to work with. If the lack of SD expansion is holding you back, consider this phone at least as a backup option. It's a really excellent phone in a cheap package.
