Advantages: A great price
Disadvantages: Not all singing all dancing
We have just bought my daughter one of these as it was really cheap.
The phone is fairly small but not tiny, it's quite light weight and robust! there are three colours the phone comes in but some companies only have one or two, it's silver, black, purple, white or pink.
It is a tought screen phone with sliding screens for various options, it has the ability to have an SD card in it.
It's quite a basic phone but then that is reflected in the price to be honest for £20 it's not going to be the most amazing phone ever!
Sound quality I thought for what my daughter needed is fine, it has all the usual radio, web connection (although we have that turned off because of the cost), calculator, games, you can text, phone use blue tooth, it has all the options such as silent mode and various options.
There are little lights under the screen which are quite a nice detail for a cheap phone, you use them as buttons to scroll the different screens across. It's quite a small screen but the bit where the lights are is also touch sensative.
I think the quality of the colours on the screen is good as well, the picture quality of photo's taken is average, it's 1.3mega pixels but then again you're paying for what you get but the colours are very bright and look nice. It also has a video but it takes up a lot of space and battery on the phone.
There is a calendar and memo on this phone which is very useful and easy to use.
This phone also has a weather feature which is supposed to be really good but you do need to be able to connect to the internet to use it, we don't let my daughter do that so we can't comment on that part.
You can customize your front screen so that you have your favourite things within easy reach.
The deal with 02 at the time was £20 and we got the pay as you go tarrif. I think for a touch screen phone for a young person it's great it's a good starter phone and is easy to use.
Overall it's not technically amazing but it's a good phone and we've had no problems with it at all. It's not always quick to respond. It's been great for our daughter who wanted to be able to say to her friends she has a touch screen phone! And for £20 we don't have to keep nagging her to be careful or worry about what might happen to it!
I have based the rating below on the price ie for the variety of features for the price it's good! hope that makes sense.
Summary: A great phone for a great price
