Good points:
It does it's job, all the features mentioned work. It has a few additional bits not mentioned (like similar gyroscope sensors to the Iphone - it knows which way it's being tilted). Battery life is ok. Everything about the phone is fine except the damn bugs. VERY tempted to flash the touchflo front-end off or at least look for updates as this may solve things.
Bad points:
Well, this is my 3rd HTC variant and to be honest it's the one that i've been least impressed with. The touchflo front end is a nice idea but its SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO buggy. The phone need at least 30 seconds to actually wake up and be usable if it's been off for a while. When trying to send a message the messager application often exits without good reason (not just becomes a background job, it's completely gone). If it wasn't for this i'd probably be rather happy with it to be honest.

Good points:
This is a fantastic handset with excellent specs and a lovely design. Its very compact for a handset with a full qwerty keyboard. The colour is very nice also. Super for email and web browsing.
Bad points:
My only gripe with the this t-mobile handset is the software with which it came with preloaded. I found it very slow and unresponsive, and after doing a little research decided that the original HTC software (HTC being the manufacturer) was by far the best thing for the handset. The handset now runs 10 times better!!
