Come on, let’s be honest here, if you are looking at this phone, YOU too are a geek! As a fellow geek, you obviously appreciate the Android OS, the ability to sync your Google Contacts, view your email, make calls over a VOIP account (or via Google Voice using GrooveIP or similar (a pay app in Google Play) and you love that you have the ability to put calls on hold and have people’s faces show up when they call. Well, you can do all that and much more with this very cool phone. I have added a few apps from the Play Store like “Google Play Music”, Pandora, GrooveIP and more. The interface works very well for my purposes (home user, light usage). I should mention that the call quality is excellent on both ends (as a listener on the phone and a recipient on the other end).
If you are buying this with an anticipated heavy use, you may be disappointed that the phone is light and feels a little, I hate to say flimsy, but … well, flimsy. I like the feel/weight of the handset, but the phone is surprisingly light (there, that’s a better way to say it). I don’t have any concerns at this point about it’s longevity and I expect I will be bored of it long before it loses its usefulness. Although, because it has my Contacts synced, it really makes this phone a winner with me.
So, if you are falling into the geek category and you have $170 extra bucks, or just need a new phone, I wouldn't hesitate. If you are looking for a commercial phone for your office, I say if you need less than 10, I would seriously consider this as an option. More than 10, well, I think I would want something more centralized … there is a fair amount of setup for the SIP accounts, so if you were doing a setup on each device, it may not be so much fun. Also, in a business environment, you would want a battery backup if you have power interruptions as it takes several seconds (I want to say 60-90) for it to boot back up again. Not a problem for home, but in an office environment I would see if there was a faster alternative (many VOIP phones take a long time to boot).
Anyway, that’s my two cents. I hope you found this useful!
