LG Shine KE970
Advantages: Erm, shiny (at least to begin with)
Disadvantages: Too quiet, to clumsy to navigate menus
Ok, so it's not an iPhone or a smartphone, but I expected a bit more out of this handset to be honest.
It looks nice, to start with, but even the gentlest touch couldn't keep it looking as shiny as you'd expect. The keys quickly started to lose their 'varnish' or finish or whatever and I'm not an excessive texter.
It does everything it's basically supposed to, but even sending a message took about 6 clicks by the time you'd searched your address book and added recipients. The menus in general were multi-level and clumsy to navigate. I missed many an incoming call because the volume of the ringer was just too low, even on the maximum setting.
Despite careful discharging/recharging the battery soon became inefficient as with many mobile phones, disappointing as that was the reason I got rid of the previous one.
There was no way that I found to lock the phone easily - simply sliding it open unlocked it, which was not good when you have youngsters around.
Another very annoying thing, it was so shiny it was very easy to lose a grip of and drop!
Summary: Looks aren't everything, especially when they don't last
