The basic phone!
Member Name: nicholaix
Advantages: QWERTY keyboard, easy to use.
Disadvantages: No wi-fi
This is the phone I was given after my other was stolen. I am pretty sure you can still pick these up from around £20 though.
This phone comes with the QWERTY keyboard which makes it much easier to text, the simplistic stuff such as Calander, alarm etc and you can also download some apps which means you can get onto facebook too!
The design is very similar to the design of a blackberry phone but is more square and clumpy, the phone is sadly very vulnerable to wear and tear, up close it does look like a cheap phone, but from afar it does look just like a blackberry phone without the label.
*Ease of use*
The phone is so simple to use, The menu is really clear and easy to navigate through, texting takes less to no time thanks to the keyboard, Its very easy to lock and switch on and off. The Battery also lasts for ages.
The camera is only 2 megapixals, the camera doesn't seem to do anything in low light settings, Some photos turn out yellow, say if there's only a lamp in the room and its fair to say that pictures only turn out well during the daytime. The camera response is slow and pictures mostly come out blurred, it's pretty much impossible to take a picture of yourself without a mirror because of this.
The phone comes with a music player - This is useless to me now because the phone needs special headphones, without headphones however the music is very loud for a phone. The phone also comes with some Games on Java, none of them are fairly interesting either. The image viewer can be quite slow and unresponsive. The phone can also hold an SD card which allows you to hold up to 4gb of extra media, but the phone keeps all these things separate and searching through the images and music on the SD card does become a bit of a nightmare. The SD card holder also has a habit of opening really easily and discarding the card.
*Connectivity and Internet*
The phone does not have wi-fi, this means you either pay for the internet (this can be expensive on Pay as you go) or it's included in your tariff. I tend to get some free internet when I top up my phone, The phone also has bluetooth to send files to other phones and newer ipods. The browser is fast, for this type of phone it really wonderful and easy to use. It's not as fast as smartphone's however.
This phone is defiantly value for money, it's easy to use and includes a lot of features, This phone would be perfect for somebody looking for something simple with a camera. It's reliable and will last ages. However, if you need a phone for the internet you will need something a bit more upmarket.
Summary: A really nice little phone.
