We believe the 5MP Camera is not on par with the new standard of 8MP+ cameras on others in the same league, especially the main contender, Apple iPhone 4S. Battery life is great, but only as far as telephony is concerned, as multimedia playback is a bit low.
With no dedicated camera key, there is some bottleneck for the snap lovers. We believe the biggest drawback was the Lack of microSD Card Slot. Even though Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is a pure pleasure, it is having some Android Ice Cream Sandwich Compatibility Issues. The Lack of FM Radio can also be a deal breaker for many as well.
