  5. Difficult to see under sunlight.

Disabled radio, poor camera without flash, and size and weight of this phone does make it run a bit slower in the race of a great phone. But amazing 3.6 inches screen, Full QWERTY keyboard, accelerometer sensor, 528 MHz processor, TV out, dedicated graphic chip will made owning one of these monsters a great experience.
