Design

  • Good, high-end build quality with metal chassis
  • Good on-screen QWERTY keyboard

Display

  • Excellent AMOLED Display with wide viewing angles, bright colors and great contrast

  • Number of 3rd party apps available for Bada is still far behind Android and iOS

Performance

  • Bada 2.0 is much more refined visually and is slick and smooth on the fast processor

Camera

  • Decent camera for outdoor photography

Audio

  • Good audio quality
  • Good call quality

Battery

  • Good battery life (1.5 days with moderate use)

More

  • Decent voice commands functionality
