1. Good social networking integration.
2. Gingerbread OS – tons of apps in market.
3. GPS works well.

1. A bit bulky, but feels sturdy.
2. Screen consumes a lot of battery. I minimize screen brightness to lower most level.
3. Back cover is shiny, hence can catch scratches easily (i prefer matted/rubberized covers, like that of xperia mini pro).
4. Heavy usage reduces battery life drastically. Could run 1 complete day though with lots of surfing, calling and some gaming.
5. Just after buying, phone was heating up if I was browsing internet for more than 30mins! Firmware upgrade solved the issue.
6. Photos taken in low light isn’t that great.
