It got amazing hardware in this price range. If you are not craze in software then this phone for you. It loaded with Bada OS you can download the software from Samsung Apps. Choice of application are very less compared to other OS.  It s defined lags behind the other OS like Android and Windows Mango. If you want to use the features software then you can go to Android/IOS or windows operation systems smartphone. If you ready to pay another 50$ then you will be getting other good handset with better choice of software.  My Choice in this segment and price range is Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V.  More detailed review you can visit the website GSMARENA.
