-Great battery life
-Plenty of Apps
-Syncs nicely with your PC and iTunes
-Decent browser with copy and paste

-May be buggy out the box and needs to be updated
-Accelerometer may take a few seconds to get correct orientation
-The overall OS tends to lag if not updated.

If I ever get another WinMo phone it'll be Samsung, who's been consistently better over the years (had most of them, too). Still, you won't be able to pull my Storm from my hands, an...
