I looked at the the US reviews of the AT&T version the Fusion  and they were mixed..

I rate it as best phone I ever had for its price range, and even slightly higher. The only complaint I have is its inpossibru to get any picture to be a background as it is seen on the screen, it stretches it off the screen even if only one screen is chosen.

Thanx.  That stretch seems normal on Android fones.  You need to take a landscape one that will  go across all screens.

It has a large clear screen easy to read outside, easy to type with - one can be incredibly lazy and it autocorrects with surprising accuracy. Takes clear photos, easy to upload to various places. I've had google maps on phones before, but its voice guided navigation is great. Runs Android 2.3.4 where some more expensive phones run older version. Strong vibrate. Great battery life.

Can bog down with certain live wallpapers I have found. Won't play tv3 on demand.
