This is one of the smallest phones ive ever seen. Its smaller than the Centro, about the same size just thinner and lighter! The phone is very powerful for being in such a small form factor. Some men may be squeemish to get a small phone called the Pixi, but I'm a man and have no problem carrying this phone because it looks solid; doesnt look girly at all (maybe if a pink version comes out). I'd rate this phone a 9/10 just because its such a powerful device in such a light, small form factor... not an "upgrade" to the Pre, but definately an alternative - I like it a lot.
