Excellent phone, sensitive touchscreen, apps load fast, poor battery life.
I started with a Blackberry Curve, moved on to the Palm Pre and now I bought this phone. It is hands down the best phone I've ever owned. The touchscreen is very sensitive, the phone is lightweight and slim, the screen is super bright and very colorful. I will be making a lot of comparisons to the Palm Pre, as that was the first touchscreen phone I had before this one.<br><br>It takes great pictures (with a flash or without), the front-facing camera and videos are a plus for me. Taking pictures on the Palm was very difficult. The camera was on the back and the button was on the front of the touch screen.<br><br>Texting is easier on this one with auto text, it was different than the autotext features I've used in the past. You can select the word, or keep typing as you were. It doesn't finish the word, forcing a backspace to correct and change it. The dictionary has a LOT of words, proper names and even those #$%& words that I use frequently. The suggested words come up in a space above your text message, so there's several to choose and it seems to "read" my mind when I typo horribly at times.<br><br>The number of free apps available on Android is crazy - the Palm was missing out on those. The keyboard works with the phone vertically or horizontally, depending if you have big or small thumbs :) The lag time on the Palm for the phone to "flip" from horizontal to vertical was noticeable and annoying. This one responds immediately.<br><br>I don't personally use my phone for MP3s as I use Pandora (a free app available on Android Market). The Pandora app works well without interruption, as opposed to the Palm which seemed to experience a lot of freezing and/or lagging.<br><br>Right now, the only thing I don't like is that it came with no type of carrying case and the battery life sucks. I've gotten used to having my phone on the charger constantly as the Palm Pre was horrible on battery life as well. I found that my old Palm chargers work with this phone, so I now have one for the car, one at work, one at home and all of them work with the USB plug to charge on the computer. If you have a standard micro USB charger, it will work with this phone perfectly. It comes with a wall charger in the box, but with the battery life (or lack thereof) you'll need either a battery backup, or a couple chargers.<br><br>The phone is fast, responds immediately when an app is opened and so far I haven't had it freeze up on me. Loading my contacts was easy with a Gmail account. Login to Gmail, sync account and voila. It took a few seconds and all of my contacts with phone numbers/email addresses were loaded. I also use it with 2 Hotmail accounts. On the Palm, I continually had errors for incorrect password (it was stored in the phone and it was correct) or SSL certificate errors, etc. randomly through the day. I haven't had a single issue with this phone and email synching.<br><br>I'm sure there are 100 other reasons to love this phone, but I'm extremely happy I bought it. I already see so many features that it has over the Palm or Blackberry and I know I made the right choice.<br><br>I will say, it's for the technology savvy person. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who hates computers and isn't into technology at all. I think it would be too much for someone like that. For me, I love gadgety goodness and I never read instructions for electronics, I prefer to figure things out myself. This phone was very easy to figure out, but not super user-friendly. Hope you love it!Read full review

Great Device, Sleek and Powerful!!
This is an ultra fast phone! The touch screen is very responsive & easy to use. "Download swype keyboard u won't regret it" I am a former Blackberry addict that had major apprehensions about touch screens. I had an Htc Hero when I originally tried to switch from Blackberry. That Phone was CRAP. It almost caused me to never try Android again. So I purchased a Blackberry Tour 2 months later. However, I was yearning for a better phone so after reading reviews and waiting for the price to come down a little, I went for the Nexus S 4G. After experiencing the Nexus S it's safe to say I will not go back to Blackberry's antiquated browser, and have been weened off the BB keyboard thanks to swype technology. Overall great device and very sexy!!!

Best phone that I've every purchased.
This phone is very basic, but that is great, if you are willing to take the time to download apps and customize it. You don't need to be a pro at customizing. The Google App store makes it pretty easy. The Ease of use is very good. It is pretty straight forward, if you are familiar with Android and if you are not, just do a Google search for it.<br><br>As far as the battery it is fine. It is average.<br><br>The value was amazing.
