    I've been using it for a month now, and I'm really pleased with it. The screen is clear with lots of detail, all the functions work - internet, email, music player, maps the widgets on the home screen. The camera is very good for a phone, too. What sold it for me was the keyboard, and it's as good as I hoped for. Makes surfing the net and entering text much more pleasurable. And of course writing emails etc. Ovi store works nicely for Apps, although there is still a lack of games!

    Gripes? Well the video camera can produce images that are a bit mushy.The user interface is not as slick as some other phones. The music player doesn't carry across artwork images, for some reason.

    It's better than the iphone 3gs for web browsing (higher resolution screen, java enabled for youtube etc, and the keyboard, of course). It also has proper bluetooth and multitasking. But the interface is a bit clunky and there aren't as many apps (yet).

    I've had this phone for a week now, it's okay but it has some flaws. I have the white one and think that it's quite an attractive phone. The screen is nice and big and the slide up is smooth. It's the first touch screen phone I've had as I was skeptical about them at first, I text a lot and I like the feel of buttons while I'm texting. I've used sony ericsons for the past three years so it's been quite difficult adjusting to the nokia and the qwerty keyboard.
    So some good points- obviously it's attractive, it has some pretty good applications though I don't use the internet on it so I can't review that aspect. The camera is really good for a 5MP and gives a nice clear picture. The screen is large and I like the fact that you have shortcuts of your chosen applications on the main screen which you can hide by just sliding your finger over the screen. It's very fun to play around with for the first few days of owning it. The menu button is a good feature and I like that you can choose to text with either the qwerty keyboard or the touch screen.
    Bad points- the battery life is SHOCKING. I only use the phone to text and ring I don't fiddle around with it all day and surf the internet etc. I have the screen brightness fairly low too and it's a brand new phone and yet the battery lasts a maximum of two days. Not impressed. The music player is a little tinny when it's on loudspeaker, I would have expected better sound quality. The sound quality isn't very clear during phone calls. The touch screen is quite unresponsive at times. I sometimes have to press the texting button 3 times before it will load and texting on the touch screen is impossible if you like to text quickly like me. The buttons on the qwerty keyboard are okay but slightly too small for practical use.

    This phone performs well in every area that a smartphone produced nowadays should perform in. There are not many things that I would change about this phone, though there are some problems.

    The main feature of the phone is the keyboard, which slides out in a functional and stylish way. The keyboard itself is laid out in a qwerty fashion, and all the buttons are in the places that you would expect them to be. The numbers are above the first line of letters, so you have to press the 'upper character' button before pressing them, or set the input to numbers. The most used symbols each have their own respective places above the other two lines of letters. Some of these symbols aren't where you'd expect to find them on a keyboard, with the brackets on the very bottom left of the keyboard, but you get used to them eventually.

    The homescreen is next, and it works very well. You almost fully customise the homescreen, with five bars worth of customisation that is possible. Shortcuts take up a quarter of a bar, and some apps take up a full bar, such as weather, music player, email, calendar and Facebook. There are no flick shortcuts from the homescreen, with a flick instead hiding all the items on the homescreen except the clock.

    The menu button opens up a pretty standard menu, which can be organised to the users taste. It includes the main menu functions such as music, contacts, web, messaging, settings and other areas. From here you can also access the list of applications. The applications are set out in the same way as the menu, and can also be organised to put the most used at the top.

    I've had it for 9 months now and it has finally got to me so much I need to have a good rant about it!

    Yes, good camera, yes, good speaker sound, but like other users I'm tempted to go back to some non-smart phone.

    The music software is rubbish - compiling playlists takes forever and then, twice, for no apparent reason the playlists get lost and I've had to start all over again and I can't find a way of backing them up and you can't transfer them from Ovi-player. - Don't get me started on the Ovi software! WHY WRITE YOUR OWN? - JUST WRITE SOMETHING THAT HELPS YOU SYNC WITH THE GOOD MUSIC PLAYING SOFTWARE EVERYONE ALREADY HAS!

    The keyboard is hard to get used to in a basic way cos the button push is clunky... but who had the idea of putting 9 above O and zero above P on the qwerty keyboard, so that almost everytime you want to do a zero you end up doing a 9 unless you really think about it?!!!!

    The menu system sometimes requires a double tap and sometimes a single tap and you never know which is going to be which, then the next level menu lags just long enough to make you think it didn't feel your tap so you tap again just when the next level menu finally comes up and you find you're going onto the following level before you know it!

    It crashes and it crashes more and more frequently - sometimes it crashes so thoroughly that you have to take the battery out to restart it!

    Googlemaps app constantly looses connection and I never could work out how to use the Nokia maps app.

    I like Nokia, I've always used Nokia phones. I hate Apple, but I want to see if I can get an iPhone 3 on the cheap now everyone's upgrading to a 4.

    Sort it out Nokia - get some decent software writers and test your phones properly.
