First the pros: The UI is pretty slick and has some nice touches (like the callback option on missed calls, the one-touch dial buttons, and the very configurable dialer screen), lighted keyboard is very useful, screen is bright and clear, the embedded apps are pretty good too.
Now for the cons: The device hung on my three times today (did not have Bluetooth enabled so that was not it, twice it was when I hit backspace to edit a field, the other was when I tried to switch incoming calls), I have had quite a few dropped calls (I don’t know if it is the device or coverage in Portland, I’ll try it again in San Francisco tomorrow), it is way too easy to hang up on someone by mistake (by touching the screen), battery life seems rather poor.
Oh, what the heck is the side button for? It seems to do almost nothing! Also, the side control (used to turn volume up and down) should really also work for scrolling up and down through lists (like contacts and calendars). That’s a duh one.
So, the verdict thus far is definitely mixed, although hanging is just plain unacceptable. Has anyone else had this issue?
