  1. Delfland: What are you talking about?
    1. This phone launches with 2.3.7, not 1.6.
    2. While this 2.3.7 may be technically “outdated” in some sense, it is under support. In fact most of the phones in the Japanese market are running 2.3.x. (This includes Sharp, NEC, Sony, Fujitsu, and everyone else).
    3. I am not sure what the UX interface is, but the Docomo version of this phone comes with the “Docomo palette” interface by default, as do all Docomo Android phones.

    You’re right about one thing, though, the FM radio is not the major feature of this phone. It is a high-end Android phone that still has some Japanese features like Saifu Keitai (Japan’s version of NFC), and 1Seg TV.

  2. you want FM radio, buy a other phone. This phone does a lot of other things which are more uefsul. And you don’t even notice that Android is outdated . People nag about apps you can’t use because you need a higher version or something, but i haven’t found 1 app i couldn’t use. And the UX interface makes you forget you only have version 1.6. So i’t aint a shame, it’s just a very good phone. Well done SE!
