Love the slide out Qwerty.
I have owned this phone for about 2 years with no problems. I text a lot and the slide out Qwerty is great. The size of the screen is good. It is a little slow on the internet but I mostly use other devices for that. It is a good phone for anyone looking to upgrade to a smartphone for the first time.

DO NOT BUY!! Save yourself the frustration!!
This is the worse phone i have ever had. I've had two of these phones and they both acted the same way. It pretty much does whatever it wants, if you open up an app there's a good chance (after it takes a good 2 minutes for it to finally open) that it will just close on you. Most of the time when i try to open an app using the shortcut on the home screen it doesn't do anything. The genius button is useless, it completely freezes my phone when i accidentally press the buttonIve had this phone for 2 years and I've never used the stupid G button.
The battery only lasts me about 4-5 hours with normal usage, after charging it overnight i have to charge it about noon, and then again around 6. By the time i go to bed the battery is almost dead again.
I could literally go on and on about how awful this phone is and how many times I've wanted to throw it out the window but i wont. Just do yourself a favor and don't buy it!!!
The only good thing i have to say about this phone is the keyboard. The keys are spaces out perfectly, makes for easy and efficient typing. But that's all. Not worth the stress of dealing wih the touch screen.

The slide out keyboard does not work, every time you use it the phone shuts off, very slow, Not Worth it...

This Phone is not the best but not the worse
I got it in September, and after around a month, the touch screen stopped working so we had to bring it in, I got a replacement and since then I've had no such problems. But the downside is that it's slow if there's too much on it. And if you drop it, the battery falls out too easily.
Pros - Not too big, Qwerty keyboard, easy enough to use, has what I need.
Cons - No front camera, no SMS texting unless you have data, runs slow with too many apps, breaks easily, lags, and won't update past Gingerbread
Lots of cons, but generally a pretty functional phone, although personally, I would buy a new phone.
