      cool, how is the device .. if you dont mind me asking how is the screen resolution .. 480×800 on a 4.7 ” screen ?

        The screen for a slcd screen amazing looks sharp and crisp. The resolution is fine on the screen the front menu looks bigger but the colours look sharper than on my hd7. I am also shocked how comfortable the phone is to hold and it does not feel big at all. Even the people in the phone shop were wowed by how slim the device was how fast it is looks like phones4u are going to push the device now.
