Ever since I started reading about this phone, I've been curious about it. When the price was announced, along with the fact that it was an unlocked phone, I just had to get one. It arrived today. Packaging is definitely no-frills. Get a box that contains the phone, USB cable for charging, wall wart to plug the USB cable into, and a set of ear buds. Instructions are rather spartan as well. Just a quick tutorial on how to start the phone and the rest is pretty much left up to you to figure out on your own. For 75 bucks, I can live with that. First the negatives. While the phone claims to be GSM/HSPA, it's not going to work on every HSPA network unfortunately. While you should be able to find a provider that this phone will work with, it may not work on your favorite provider. Something to consider if you're thinking about snagging one. With many companies coming out with phones that are dang near a mini-tablet, there's no fear with getting a huge device here. The phone fits nicely in your hand and while it's not going to win any awards for outstanding resolution, it's not too shabby. OK, first the specs.

However, I've been fiddling with the phone for a couple of hours now and it's still pretty snappy. I haven't tried any videos are anything like that (On a 3.5" screen? Gimme a break!), but web sites via the wifi connection were snappy. Hard to read, but still snappy. In fact, the phone handles them better than my 7" e-reader does. That's pitiful. No backlighting/flash with the camera. Then again I didn't buy the phone to take pictures, either. Besides, what do you expect for 75 bucks? A freakin' professional camera? Call quality isn't that bad. Haven't hooked my bluetooth headset to it yet (it's charging), so that hasn't been tested as of this posting. The few reviews I've read about the phone are from those who try to compare it to a full fledged Android device or iPhone. Seriously? We're talking about a 75 dollar phone with an unproven OS on it. Let's get real here. It's a class all its own. Boot time is 30 seconds. As I've never owned a smartphone until now, I don't find that earth shatteringly slow. Perhaps it is, but then again, my expectations aren't running that high, either. Battery life is going to be an issue I think. It's been off the charger for about 4.5 hours so far and the battery is down to 83%. Most of that has been in idle mode with wifi on. I'll do some testing over the next few days with and without wifi. Initial impression? I'm gonna love this thing. Not because it's a high end phone that cooks my eggs and walks the dog each day. No, I'm gonna love this thing because it really isn't that bad of a device, it's cheap, comes unlocked, and it's still a decent performer. Life is good.
