"Great Phone"

The good: Live Search, Navigation, Visual Voicemail, Stereo Bluetooth, Favorites Tab, Opera Mini

The bad: No Flash on Camera, Instinct Web Browser

Summary: I have had the phone for 9 months and I like it. Yes I know its not an iPhone killer but I wanted the best service for the best price which was Sprint. The features on the phone are great. The features I use the most are the stereo Bluetooth which I can play music on most of the day and not worry about battery. I usually kill my Bluetooth headset battery before the Instinct hits 70% battery. The other feature I really like is Live Search. This is the first phone I have owned with the Live Search feature and I love it. When you open up the application you can say or type in what you are looking for and it looks up all the information for you quickly. Example: I Live Search McDonalds...It pulls up the nearest McDonalds to my current location and displays the address and phone number to the location. If I push the phone number it calls the McDonalds. It also can open up the Navigation application and get me directions with one click. I can also get a map of the location or turn by turn directions. I can also share this information if I wanted. It saves time in searching for locations, getting directions or even looking up phone numbers. I have had family members ask me to look up places online and I use the phone because it is honestly faster to just say the name of the location and get all the information in a few seconds.

While I do love the phone I would be lying if I said the phone was perfect. The Instinct web browser sucks and you can read that anywhere on the internet...everyone agrees, but you can install Opera Mini and it does work a whole lot better. As for the camera...it is an ok camera. You need good lighting because there is no flash and a steady hand because sometimes the pictures blur.

Overall I like my phone and I just hate when people review it and say "Its not and iPhone" If you want an iPhone then buy an iPhone.

PS. the phone comes with a stylus but no place to put it on the phone, but I never used the stylus
