    I think it's a decent bump on an "hardware revision" because that's what this is. You get a bump in clock speed, front facing camera, OS bump to 2.3.5(no 2.3.7 because there's no NFC capabilities). As long as it's a similar price point it should do well.

    We bought a ZTE Groove for my nephew yesterday (his first phone) it's not bad and feels snappy when navigating through menus etc. it also plays the few games we've tried just fine.

    He's definitely happy with it which is great.

    But for me the one glaring negative is the camera picture quality, it lacks auto focus for one and the pictures (when viewed on PC) remind me of how my older non-android phones would produce camera images (a little dark, blurry & noisy).

    Also the video recording resolution is only 320x240 @ 15fps on the "High" setting.

    Here's a quick camera comparison I did vs. my Huawei Mercury, I used default (auto) camera settings on both phones and had the Flash enabled.

    Mercury on the Left.

    thanks! that is one of the things i do not like about the phone, i would expect a decent camera with the flash. i guess just can't have both at that price or something.
