Advantages: Simple interface, easy to access commonly used features through the quick menu icons on-screen.
Disadvantages: Auto-locks the keypad when making a phone call (feature can't be disabled).
This is a basic affordable touchscreen java phone, nevertheless a decent phone. Some very good features include the digital phone call recording without beeps, a very simple calendar and organiser. The bad features are very few, including but maybe not limited to the auto-screen-lock when making phone calls and limited media capabilities.
The phone isn't too bulky, even as a touchscreen. Its moderately light phone and not too weak, doesn't break too easily if dropped from two metres height onto a wooden floor (it does get scratches, and the screen may crack if unprotected). Since its not likely to drop 2 metres by accident, there's very little to worry. In any case a simple cheap silicone or soft plastic case can provide excellent protection, a screen protector can be used to reduce the likelihood of scratching the screen.
The phone's headset is another really good, yet a simple one piece with earphones and mic 2-in-1 (same as the sort used with blackberry phones). The audio connector is a standard 1/8" audio jack connecting both, the mic and headphones.
Its worth buying if you're not bothered with multimedia quality, and have no problem with the auto-screen-lock.
I wouldn't recommend the phone for social networking, or any internet use.
To sum it up, its a simple java touchscreen phone, with built-in digital two way call recording, an headset with 1/8" audio jack connection, below average multimedia capabilities, and auto-screen-lock when making phone calls.
Summary: Java touchscreen phone, built-in digital two way call recording, headset with 1/8" audio jack.
