    I bought it one week back. This is a real smart-phone. My friend has an iPhone 3G s. It sucks. I have no problem with running multiple apps in background – iPhone cannot. No issue with Digi-Compass – but his one gets stucked so frequently. I feel I’m having so much freedom with this. HTC and Android Rocks.

    I wasn’t aware of that. There are a lot of android phones nowadays, it’s hard to choose. I always thought iPhone’s are better.
