The Super AMOLED Plus display used in this phone is horrifically bad.
I gave it a 1 because it can in fact display an image... monochrome would have gotten a higher score.

It is so over saturated that in certain apps it is painful to look at(Handcent SMS for instance). I found it so detestable that I returned this phone after a week because when it would ring, I would sometimes not answer because I didn't want to have to look at it. Put it this way, Whites are Blue... Green is Neon Green... If your TV at home looked like this you'd know it was broken. Not sure why so many people think this is acceptable or even desired in a phone.

The design of the phone feels cheap and plasticy.

The performance is good, this is a snappy processor for sure.

The Battery life is pretty good, but it strangely take hours to charge.

Samsung's Touchwiz is almost as bad as the display... the simple fact that it is android saves it a bit here... but TW is really horrible.
