A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - Engadget

I loved this phone for all of a week before I returned it cause of the $70 monthly bill. Almost worth it for the awesome software and the magnificent KIN Studio, which I really hope will live to see another day. Not exactly a noble failure, but will always have fond memories. Oh and the tube packaging this came is was really really great.
