Sony Ericsson K750i
Advantages: Long battery life; ease of use
Disadvantages: low camera megapixels if your fussy
I have had the Sony Ericsson K750i for a good few years now, and even though my current phone is the HTC wildfire, this is the one phone i will never replace or sell on, as it is truly dependable, and reliable.
The phone itself is relatively simple, its a candy bar phone with physical buttons instead of more modern touchscreens and a joy stick that makes navigation of the phone flawless and simplistic. Mine was silver, but that is obviously down to individual taste, and in comparison to more modern phones it is chunky and has a bit of weight behind it. This too me is a positive feature/characteristic of the phone, as it is resistant to knocks and drops (trust me, mine has flown across a field or two before), and removes the fragility you seem to get with more modern phones these days where you are actually scared to use them in case they get damaged.
With regards to the phones primary purpose, i.e. sending messages and making calls, it was relatively quick and responsive to your key inputs, it didn't freeze up at all and generally was without hassle. The reception of making a call was of high quality and there was no unnecessary straining to hear what was be spoken down the earpiece.
Some of the entertainment features included Bluetooth, a 2.0 megapixel camera, and media player. The camera itself in comparison to the 14.1 megapixel digital cameras you can buy today is obviously shocking, but for when the phone was released it was more than adequate, and like i try to stress in all phone reviews, its not a camera, and the camera is only there for on the spot memories and as an additional feature not something you would take holiday snaps with. so in this case i do not believe this is a fault. the media player is incredibly simplistic and provides you with the ability to play and watch videos, music files or pictures, not really highly entertain-able, i would regard it as more of a glorified gallery than a media player.
Finally i used to spend all day everyday on my phone, texting, calling playing music and i would have to say the battery life is outstanding you will never ind your self running short if you forget to charge it one night as it has incredible stamina. and this is probably the best selling point of this phone as the reason the battery life is so much better than all these new, flashy modern models is because it does what it was designed to do, not much more, making it practical and efficient.
I would suggest this phone to anyone who needs something, reliable, cheap, easy to use, not over-complicated, and is looking for a solid long term investment.
Summary: reliable, cheap, easy to use, not over-complicated
