I've had the phone since Tuesday, and I'm still on the fence about keeping it. I ended up paying about $90 for the phone ($250 less $100 rebate less $60 one month credit through cust service to extend contract 1 yr), so it's a good deal. But here are my pros and cons:


-Super thin
-Beautiful phone, love the color and shine factor
-Loud earpiece and speaker.
-Keypad large and easy to use and text
-Outer and inner displays are beautiful
-Feels well made and has a nice weight to it
-Crystal clear reception with no background hum
-Great camera
-More bluetooth features than I am used to, at least according to the manual. I was able to send a pic to my printer, but haven't tried transfering files to my PC yet


-Fingerprint magnet, but it comes with the territory on any shiny phone
-No shortcut to alternate between vibrate and ringer mode. I hate having to OPEN the flip and scroll through the volume button to change this every time. At least with the old Rzr (and even my old V60 from back in the day) you could do this without opening the phone.
-Large size of outer screen pretty much useless because picture ID comes out tiny, (smaller than other phones that have a SMALLER screen in fact) and cannot read text messages
-Closing flip closes you out of games. With my LG 8100 I could close the flip and my game would pause, not close.
-Have to remove battery to insert microSD card
-Cover on charging/micro usb port is sometimes difficult to move out the way

So far I've gone through trials of the LG 8700 and Samsung U740 and returned them. I am not sure if I will keep this one yet. I am going to keep it up until my 30 days are up and see if I decide to keep it.
