I've had this phone for about a month now and I really like it. The reception is great on it. Also, the earpiece volume is really good. Much better than my previous Razor V3i. Now, as for the camera, it's not too bad. It has more features than the Motorola cameras and also has an LCD flash. I haven't taken too many pics with it, but the ones I have taken have come out pretty good. Outdoor pics come out the best, but if you take the time to get your settings just right, then the indoor ones come out good. I, personally would give the phone a try. Hope this helps!!
