You can't possibly ignore memory leaks. There are OS builds out there for the 9000 that bring available memory down to 0KB. So although voice quality might be great the phone is rendered non usable since the spinning wheel won't even allow you to unlock. The "basics" you're after are directly linked to available memory.
