Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Love the curves, i can't stand straight lines. Black, stylish without being gothic! Nice big screen, and i love the swivel-y menu button thing.
Bad points:
Camera bit is annoying, if u take a photo, it looks like the whole photo is on-screen, but when it's taken u actually get extra bits, so the bit u focused on is actually tiny in the middle. u get used to it though.
