Advantages: Touch Screen, Drawing Panel, Stylus
Disadvantages: Can be hard to text, low camera quality
I bought this phone three years ago and am proud to say that it is still going strong. The stylus which snuggly and discretley fits in to the side of the phone allows you to draw and navigate your way through the touch screen. One of the applications provided with the phone that I have found hours of amusement and innovation from, is the "drawing panel". This allows you to use the stylus to create a picture or whatever you desire, enhanced by the variety of colours and pen thicknesses which can be selected by the menu. This feature is also very useful if you want to quickly jot something down or set a reminder for yourself.
Despite the touch screen being one of the best parts of the phone it also can be its downfall. Sometimes texting can be tricky, however there is an option where if you turn the phone on its side, then it becomes like a keyboard which you can use with the stylus.
The phones other functions are fairly simular to the convential phones currently on the market, where you dial and use the two buttons on the body of the phone to call or hang up.
I would recommend this product to anyone who needs an easy, sustainable phone that will do its job and allow you to be able to procrastinate.
The reception varies depending on which phone network you are on (I'm on O2 which is very effective and very rarely leaves me without reception.) There is a camera on the phone however it is only 2mega pixels which doesn't give you the best pictures, which is another downside to the phone. Bluetooth is another feature that is included in the phone, picture messenging as well as texting, voice calls and voice messages can all be sent and recieved through this phone too which is useful if you want to contact someone or be contacted.
Summary: Reliable and easy to use.
