4.0 out of 5 stars Mid level phone, 20 Dec. 2012
I am a moderate user with little Android experience having freshly come from iOS. I am using a Google account to sync calendar, contacts and email. This phone and HTC's Sense UI make that very simple. The handset is light and slim with a 4 inch screen, the rear is slightly rubberised making it wonderfully tactile and unlikely to slip from your grip. I cannot quote screen res but it is a excellent screen, comparable to my recent iOS handset. This handset will take a micro SD card I am using a 16 GB one with no issues. One is NOT supplied with the handset, it is also not accessible without taking the back off. Taking the back off is easy but not something I would guess you would want to do often as the rear case once off is quite fragile, the volume rocker looks easily broken for example. However once back on the phone it is robust. The build quality is good but it is not as bullet proof as the HTC Desire's predecessor. Also to note is that it takes a full sized sim card, although I am using a micro sim with an adaptor. It comes with ICS which is fast and easy to use. You can have only 5 home screens but with an excellent range of widgets. Battery life is good but not great. I get one day really heavy use or two days normal use, this is about normal for most of the recent handsets I've had. It does 3G and the HSPA data and of course wifi, although oddly enabling the wifi does affect battery life a little. I also dimmed the screen to extend battery life which is not a problem as the screen is so good. Touch sensitively of the screen is good, I have stuck with the standard keyboard without a problem. Summary. I like this phone, quick, easy to use and robust ( for a modern 4' screen smart phone) with a good screen. I would like a bigger battery and slightly quicker processor however this is a mid range phone and what's on offer here is really good for the price and that probably sums up this phone- a very good mid range phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 18 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clean fresh scent like real squeezed lemons. Cleans without drying, leaves that lovely scent lingering gently. Using as an aftershave and a toner ( I have oily skin ) not tested on animals according to the bottle. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 18 July 2012
An excellent brush, lots of backbone- perfect for triple milled soaps, nice size about medium. Beds in quickly with the bristle ends splitting making it soft and assisting water retention, I didnt do anything special just use it. I really like this brush, nothing bad to say.

1.0 out of 5 stars Outlook warning, 1 Feb. 2011
If you are buying the business edition it is likely you are doing so for Outlook, if so please be warned- do your research first because Outlook will not sync with Google calendar and many other exchange accounts. It will work with Gmail but not the calendar, so if you want one suite to sync mail, calendar and contacts, forget it.
Want to sync with your iPhone? forget it. Sync with your iPad? forget it.
Sorry but Google can do for free what Outlook cant do with the professional edition....

1.0 out of 5 stars no good for driving across europe, 13 Aug. 2010
ok, got a couple of different sat-navs, liked my old tomtom and needed to go across Europe so brought this start2 europe, opended the box plugged it into the laptop to charge and checked maps were up to date, the maps were not upto date but a free map update was available, great! except that the new maps don't fit on a 2gb device (like this and like most tomtom products unless they have upgradable sd cards -go750 upwards, i think)

you can download just part of the map of Europe though, so to drive across Europe you would have to stop halfway and download a different 2gb map section (think of the data charges) assuming of course you have your laptop (and an internet connection) in the car!
so it is useless unless you want to just drive around England and France,

this is not a Europe sat-nav, you can (as the tomtom customers services pointed out) keep the old maps, true but why then have i brought a NEW sat-nav!?

product does not meet description hence 1 star, also the touch screen is really poor, nice and small device though.
