Overall: I bought this phone about month ago, though not from Flipkart. I have used a BB 9790, 9900 and Curve 3G before, and this has surely been the best till now. It has the following features:nn1. Touchscreen - best touchscreen i have used.n2. Qwerty keyboard - is a straight keyboard unlike the other curved ones, and spaced out keys that makes in very easy to type. The keyboard is identical to the one on q5.n3. FM - has an inbuilt radio.n4. 5 MP camera - not too great.n6. 1450 mAh battery - lasts an entire day with 3g... excellent.n7. I like the build quality and the cover at the back has an amazing design making it very easy to grip.n8. Finally the price is what attracted me... I am a bbm user and for 16k there is no bb as good as this with these specsnnSo finally, if u like a good well built phone, that looks amazing, is moderately fast, provides good social networking... then this is the phone for u !
