As far as the GSM reception concerns, it seems to have improved in this phone. In the same spots that I normally had network breakdowns with the HD9, I don’t have it any more with the HD958. During the past week I have never noticed the “restricted access changed” notification, so much common on the HD9. In terms of call quality it is pretty good, and people don’t complain any more that the volume of my voice is too low.
One more thing that will make some people very happy is that Skype (version 126.96.36.199+) now works. In previous Chinese smartphones, Skype had a problem (although also present in many other branded Android smartphones), that would lead to an infinite loop during sign-in.
- Dual SIM Dual Standby with 3G support
- Lack of camera LED flash
- Should have been released already with Android 2.3, although it will be updated in the future
