THis is a horrible phone! Why? It has 600 MB "Phone" memory, which is separate from the 2 GB internal memory. It fills up pretty damn fast and now I can't update any of my apps because I get "Insufficient storage space available" all the time! I have 1.8 GB free memory left, but it is classified as "Internal memory" so the apps that are installed on the Phone memory can not update! Plus, I also get this message if I try to install some new apps in the internal memory!

Also it lags pretty bad if you use Facebook, Google+, Twitter etc.
