Lets see, Ill go over the pros and cons vs the iPhone. Don’t let the number of pros vs number of cons fool you. I am overall satisfied with the phone. At first I was scared since it was a chinese iphone clone with no warranty but it seems pretty solid and the battery is a standard model. The biggest issue I am unable to judge is the value. This is my first pocket PC so I am mostly unable to judge if it was really worth $300 or not. I can say that when I showed it to a co-worker with an iPhone his response was “is that an iPhone” then after using it for a second his reply was “this is what I need, Windows Mobile, I hate my iPhone”.

Cons:

  • screen a bit smaller (3.2″ 320×240 res) and not perfectly centered vertically (I’m OCD)
  • viewing angles suck for movie watching with more than one person  (stop laughing now)
  • Slow bootup, see bellow
  • processor a lot slower (180mhz TI OMAP 850 with dedicated core for calls etc.., iPhone has a 650mhz chip)
  • outer touch screen plastic instead of glass (cant crack, so slight silver lining)
  • Dust + crud can get in ear hole and behind touch screen (Fixed with tape + needle holes)
  • Data port is only way to charge, is a non standard plug type. Will the contacts wear out and require a serious mod job to replace with a more standard USB data plug?
  • A good bit thicker than even 3g
  • Pretty heavy
  • All plastic except battery cover
  • No tilt sensor
  • No accesories such as skins or covers available
  • The one soft button doesnt apper to be programmable, only takes you to start screen
  • T32 is close to the same price but has internal GPS and a few other extra features (Except quadband, hence I had to buy m88 instead).
  • Data is only GPRS, not sure what speed

Pros: 

  • Windows mobile 6x (BIG plus)
  • Screen fairly responsive once you are used to it (not as reposive as iPhone)
  • No software required on vista for data cable
  • Completely unlocked
  • Fast enough for most things
  • Good signal
  • Good wifi though a little less range than my laptop
  • Good screen brightness if you turn it up and dont mind the extra battery usage.
  • Good battery life due to low clocks, calls + light usage will last 2-3+ days.
  • Removable 2200mah battery (mah varies by seller)
  • Picture quality not that bad at 1600×1200. As good as my old cheap digital camera.
  • Held up well when I dropped it on a ceramic tile floor. just a tiny dent in the corner of the battery cover where it hit.

    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar
    one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?

    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.
