I love mine so far for the most part. I just traded a mytouch 4g for it. I know its not the most bleeding edge hardware or software. But after my Nexus One broke I needed the best android phone on TMOB to tide me over until the Pyramid or G S 2 come out. Also for those wondering, the data speeds are noticeably faster than what I was getting on the mytouch 4g. And the battery handled my long evening of thai food, bar hopping, and drunk texting,tweeting,foursquaring,facebooking,etc.... about it.

I can't recall the exact number. But it was a little over 200mb I believe. So, the downside to going from the mytouch 4g to this is you lose quite a bit of internal storage for apps. But thankfully many of them can be stored on the SD card. Also when you sync you Google account, not all the apps auto download to the device like with some Android devices. Not sure why. But thankfully all my paid apps showed up My Apps part of the market, you just have to install them.

Call and speaker quality is far better than the mytouch 4g. I also hardly ever don't have 4G with this phone and with the mytouch I was somewhat regularly getting no service, 3g, or edge. And I live in Dallas/Fort Worth! The speaker is very loud and clear despite not looking too promising from the photos. I just did a test loading a few apps from the sd card, then moving to the phone and loading and I haven't seen much of a difference if any at all in load times. The biggest annoyance i've had with the phone so far is getting my facebook/twitter/google contacts to sync and connect how I want them to. But after trying a few things it appears to slowly be going more my way.

Ok I just got mine tonight. Very fast shipping on t-mobile's part. I extended my contract two years. I have 30 days to try it out. So far I like it!
The phone is VERY light. It's almost too light. I like my phones to feel substantial and now like they're going to blow away in the wind. I guess this is personal preference. Not bad though but a little scary when playing with it outdoors.
Speed: The phone is FAST. I've experienced no freezes, lags or pauses. Everything runs as it should. Quite impressed.
Swype: I was skeptical about this at first but it actually works REALLY well for most words. Its actually quite fun too to see if the phone can guess the word and I'd say 7 times out of 10 it does so accurately. I'm still seeing what works best... Blackberry keyboard is very spoiling. I feel clumsy typing on any touchscreen phones.
Screen: Very vivid, sharp, contrasty, bright.
Camera: A little slow and clunky. iPhone 4 camera wizzes right by. Picture quality, saturation, dyanmic range all seem meh but I'll reserve full judgment after I conduct further testing
Charging looks like it can be a bit abusive... I miss the charging contacts on Blackberry--no way to dock the Galaxy S?
I've only had the phone a few hours so take this review with a grain of salt. Just initial impressions. I think I'm keeping it though.

I love mine. I love that its very light and easy to handle. I especially love how I can change the font. The one thing I dont like is no camera flash and no choice for using the android keyboard instead of swype and samsung.
