1 pointDAY 3 REVIEW OK mates, so here's my day 3 review of this phone in comparison to my HTC 6800 Mogul - 1. Super Quick & Fast phone (unlike My Mogul 6800) Rings on 1st Ring (not 2nd or 3rd as in My Mogul) 2. I have been able to set MP3 as My Alarm Tones (which was not possible/very difficult/big memory hog/had to convert to wav in WM Mogul). No Headaches here, very simple and very fast. MP3 Ringtones were of course no problems, but unlike Mogul - No Memory Hog 3. Screen Quality and Depth is far better than Mogul, at even 50% it is brighter than Mogul at 100% brightness. 4. Switching between applications is just a button press away. 5. Have Installed 4GB Mini SD, works like a charm without any hiccups. All files easily read and written in Windows Explorer 6. Very Fast Email download - I have downloaded through My gmail account - no problems- was setup in seconds 7. EVDO (3G ready) whenever Reliance launches it i.e. 8. Key Pad is just Superb - Better than BlackBerry (which I have used) - 10 times better than Mogul 9. Camera (though 1.3MP) is very good for both Stills and Camcorder is also Just Great 10. Music Player is Superb - Clarity equivalent to Mogul on My Seinheissers (through 2.5mm to 3.5 mm adaptor) 11. It is even charging by MY RELIANCE LG PHONE CHARGER (by the supplied Charger Adapter Cable) Hence the Car Charger of LG (Thin Long Pin one) will work seamlessly with this phone - Great Cost Cutting Gift 12. Video Playback is just Superb - It is playing all my mpg and avi files through 3rd party Core Player. Other formats to test. 13. Bluetooth is simple and superb - Was connected to My Laptop and Motorola Headset in a jiffy. Also transferred files seamlessly. 14. I connected to Rworld without any problems (Just tested it, as I dont use Rworld) 15. Connected to Rconnect as a Modem without any problems and somehow got speeds better than my Mogul 16. Thousands of Softwares available on the net 17. Just Love the way it handles SMS's, Missed Calls, Outlook Calendar etc. 18. Seamlessly synced with My Outlook Contacts in seconds 19. 1600 mAh battery (better than the 1500 mAh on Mogul) and Talktime is much superior to Mogul 20. I just love the overall fit and finish (much better than the plasticky Mogul) and the Full Rubberised Body in blue, and the Chrome knobs and tactile keys - seems like BUILT TO LAST. Downers: 1. No Wi-Fi (But then the cost is 5-6K less than Mogul - U can get one additional phone for that) One solution I have got from Kshah is to install a software Softiqppp and share the Internet Connection of my PC through Bluetooth (if somebody really needs that) 2. Browser is slightly weak. No Opera Mobile version (which I am just loving on my Mogul) for Palm yet - But wait - will come surely. My advise : Get this phone from Sadikk at 11-12K before it runs out. MUCH MUCH BETTER than any Nokias going around. It is just superb VALUE FOR MONEY PACKAGE.
