#2 of Sicekicks for me because I like them. Keyboard along with all other features you want, Touchscreen-typing is possibe too.
If you use your phone a lot, the battery has a very short life. I upgraded to a longer life battery and it wasn't a probem for me after that. The phone requires an SD card to take any photos or videos. Most people already use SD cards besides me, prior to this phone. Frustrating for me is that some applications aren't compatible, idk if it's all Androids or the phone. Any popular applications for majority of population work fine, phone wants to sync with Facebook and emails, all that annoying stuff. imo. Pandora works. I am open to being messaged with any questions regarding the phone.

Great phone for Sidekick lovers, simple to use and great for texting :-)
I absolutely love the Sidekick family, I had the LX 2009 before so this seemed like a logical next best step. The phone is a dream come true for Sidekick lovers, it is smaller than the other models but it includes a touch screen and rearrangement of the home,jumb,menu, and back keys. Its a great phone but has a few quirks, the battery life is not ideal and it will have moments where it freezes; however these are minor and don't make me regret my purchess. I love that the phone allows you to do so much more than the original Sidekicks, definitely a good buy.

Okay Product That Lacks Software Updates. Also Occasionally Crashes!
This is a great first time smartphone. The issue with the phone is its rather outdated compared to the current versions of android. This means that some applications may not support this device. Most applications support as low at android 2.3, which is useless since this phone can only upgrade to android 2.2 currently. Some applications will support the phone but not work as intended. An example is the Bank of America application. You can login and check your balance but the application is unable to properly take pictures of check when you choose the deposit feature. I also encountered a freezing issue with this phone. It would randomly freeze when you open the camera app or memo app. This appears to be an issue with the amount of RAM/Memory that the device has. The issue is reported by multiple users of the devices. This could be because of the large amount of "bloatware" on the phone. These are applications installed by T-Mobile that can not be removed. But you overall will feel the phone vibrate 2 times and then it reboots when this occurs. So you can imagine you can just trying to look at a memo and your phone reboots. But this doesn't occur in just certain applications this can happen in any application that you open. So its unexpected and rather annoying in my opinion. The phone is great in terms of coverage and 4G service. But that depends a good amount on where you live. One thing I found useless was the sidekicks iconic keyboard. I found myself preferring the on screen keyboard to the physical keyboard because this phone is touch screen. Its rather annoying to be texting and then have to click the screen. You could use the small trackball but I found that annoying also. I would rather use the on screen keyboard and then click send on the screen, which defeats the purpose on the physical keyboard. Some people will want this phone based on their old experience with previous sidekick models. But I would advise you that you may want to look at a newer phone. This phone is about 2 years old and is not supported by Samsung anymore. So before you buy this phone understand you are buying a product that will not be updated anymore and may crash frequently.

Great Android phone.. just don't get it wet AT ALL!!!
This is my second Sidekick phone the first was drowned.. This Review is a combination of both phones... as phones go it does have a few oddities... if you charge it with a power supply that doesn't provide a lot of power the phone's touch screen won't work while charging.. the battery life is fairly poor... it's water tolerance is awful.. don't use it in the rain don't get it damp... this died the first time when a little spilled tap water went across the table getting a little water into the back plate.. I was able to dry it and use it again.. but the back key and a couple of the letters on the kb no longer worked (u turned up the volume and the back key put out 7&z or something like that D just died) the second time was it's doom.. I fell off my boat into a lake with it in my pocket... then while drying it apart in the sun a sudden thunderstorm moved over and drowned it again... I ordered a new one... as for the good side of this phone it has some good camera features the panorama is my favorite... but no zoom (odd) it also plays games well and the touch screen is good. it plays video without problems and the sound is good... the Android functions are very good as is the layout. I have used several other android phones and I find this one fast and easier to use.. the Keyboard is excellent.. the battery life sucks a bit... it will last 12 hours on a good day if you don't play games or make a lot of calls... The reason I bought this phone is that it was an inexpensive T-Mobile 4G slider... I *HATE* onscreen keyboards.. I do a lot of text entry and when using the soft keys it takes me 5X the time to do anything because of all the correcting... the small QWERTY that it uses is very easy to type on.. in short The Good The Qwerty slider Keyboard The Processor speed The layout of the Android system The 4G speed The ease of use The Camera (conditional) The screen size The Touchscreen (conditional) The Bad The poor water tolerance The battery life The Touchscreen (doesn't work under low power situations) The Camera (no zoom WHY!?!?)
