Advantages: 5mp camera, easy menu
Disadvantages: low sound, no wifi
I used this phone for more than an year and I can say I was pretty pleased by its capacities. As a first tactile mobile phone I had I learned to manage it in a short time, so I recommend it for the beginners of tactile phones.
The 5 mp camera is not so performant as I expected it to be, but the manual configuration of the shots helps to get better photos. I found the ISO option(max. 800) very useful, especially for the places where you canīt use the flash and for the pictures taken at night. For the day use of the camera, the ISO shouldnīt be at more than 200 for taking a good picture. The image stabilizer only helps of reducing burning, especially of the close taken photos, but it doesnīt do the stabilization work it was supposed to do, actually, when activated, any little move can kill your photo.
The music and video player works fine, but the sound it is a little lower for my taste (anyway this can be changed from the hidden menu of the phone).
I wished it had Wifi, this is something that I really missed using this phone.
Another thing that I consider it a minus is the speaker, which is localized in the backside of the mobile, which makes a little difficult to listen to the music while you are moving.
The battery last well, 2 or 3 days, depending of the use of the applications.
As a general conclusion, I was happy having it and I tried to give it the maximum use I could. Still, after all the time I had it, I keep discovering things about this mobile that I didnīt knew before, so it is not a boring phone at all. I recommend it, worth having it and give it a try.
Summary: An average, but good smartphone
