The whole phone is fantastic but its best qualities are with the clickable screen which is arguably as much of a phone revelation as the iPod wheel was to mp3 players, by far the best usability of any phone made. The video and screen quality is also superb and the many extras available make it a consumer friendly phone as well as the usually fantastic email access.
Only bad points to be honest are that the accelerometer can at times be slightly unresponsive or slow, something they will need to work on for future models of the storm. The only other issue is that blackberry for all their efforts to make a superb phone (which they have!) have still failed to make a battery that is worthy of the phones endless possibilities. Its all fair and well having a phone that can manage pretty much your whole life but its let down if it dies on you EVERY day! Come on blackberry there's got to be an answer somewhere!
This phone is by far the best phone on the market, bar none and I include the iPhone in that. The iPhone may have the memory and brand name for consumers, but when you can purchase a blackberry for free and a 16GB memory card for less than £40 then why with its many better features and the far superior clickable screen would anyone want to pay £99 or £159 for a glorified mp3 player when most of us already have a nice straight forward iPod!
Long live the STORM and if they work on the battery and accelerometer I have no doubt the STORM mark 2 WILL be an iPhone KILLER!
