Advantages: Attractive, Good value touch screen phone
Disadvantages: Easily unlocks, not the best phone for texting quickly
I brought this phone from Tesco about a year and a half ago for around £100 on tesco mobile pay as you go. I chose the pink colour and liked the idea that it was a touchscreen i could afford! It comes with a stylus which you dont have to use but it find it easier to when texting. The phone has a good sized screen good for viewing photos. The phone is simple to use with a clear menus for Communication,entertainment, utilities and settings. There is also a 'widget' function for easy access to things such as your alarm or your music which you can choose to have on display at all times. The phone has a good selection of ring tones and a 3 games. Internet assess is good on this phone and the 'drawing panel' is useful for writing things down in a hurry. The phone has both a camera (3MP) and video camera function both are of reasonable quality. I would recommend getting a micro SD card to slot into the side of the phone to allow you to store your pictures and music.
As I said before I brought this phone from Tesco and brought it with a Tesco Mobile Sim. I must admit I was a little unsure about how good the call reception would be compared to major networks such as Orange and O2. I wasnt disappointed though at all the call reception has been great and in some cases Ive had a better reception than others on these major networks. I would definitely recommend Tesco Mobile network by the way-especially if you have a clubcard they triple your money. For example if you top up by £10 you get £30 credit for that month (plus triple points!).
Anyway back to the actual phone. The battery life has been really good and even now after a year and a half I can get away with not charging my phone for 2/3 days! I must say though that I am not one of those people that charges there phone fully every night so that may have something to do with it.
The only negatives I would give would be that it is easy to unlock and there have been occasions where Ive called people by mistake! Another would be that predictive text isnt too great on this phone.
Overall though a good value phone if your looking for a touch screen but cant afford a more expensive one.
Summary: A reasonably priced pink touch screen phone
