So basically, I'm in Costa Rica, the phone works just fine, is supposed to be 4band and 4band 3G too so it will work with any carrier. I've had it for about 2 weeks and I can tell you is WONDERFUL. The screen is not hard to look at, is not too small, the screen resolution is very good so all that crap you hear is untrue but of course if you compare it to an EVO or an iPhone display obviously it will fall short. I have all sorts of apps installed on it and they work like a charm i send emails, sms, pictures quite fast, the processor runs like a charm I use app killer because i'm a dork but is not necessary. Battery life was a huge concern i was affraid when i bought it and again proved to be a myth i just lowered the backlight brightness and i easily make it thru the day and back home and still have 15-25% juice.
The Only reason i give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of 2 HUGE improvement opportunities:
#1 the camera is quite crappy... it will take your occasional pic or video but the resolution is quite crappy even though it even does panorama mode. As easy as adding autofocus feature and flash would make it a MUCH MUCH better phone and no frontal cam.
#2 It may/may not randomly lose reception in places where other phones have no problems like inside houses or office buildings but i went with it to the beach and no issue but it definitely falls on the category of low end antennas so don't expect it to work in areas where a nokia has hard time finding reception if you know what i mean.
hope this is helpful!
