A Great Phone But With Lack Of Features
Member Name: JJ2010JAYJAY
Advantages: Slim, Light, Looks Good, Loud, Good Sound Quality, Big Buttons, Simple, Good Battery Life, Strong
Disadvantages: I've Experienced Texting Issues, Poor Camera, Lack Of Features
I got this phone when it was quite new. I think it was 2004 and I can't remember how much I paid for it. But I do know that you can get a decent one on eBay for £30-£40. I do like it but I have had some problems with it.
It is very slim and good looking. It is also quite light and comfortable to hold. It only has a couple of buttons around the sides and it has a small screen in the front with the time on it. When you flip it up, the buttons are quite big and easy to use. This makes it easy to text with. You can also feel that you have pressed a button after you have pressed it, which I find quite handy.
On a negative side, the menu is quite boring. However, it is quite simple. The screen isn't particularly big and I think it would be easier to use if it was bigger.
It is quite strong on the outside and doesn't scratch easily. The screen quality is okay, but the camera quality is pretty poor. However, considering its age, it isn't terrible. The sound quality is quite good and it is very loud. This comes in handy when it is in your pocket or around the house somewhere as it is easy to hear.
The battery life is quite good and the call quality is reasonable. With the normal V3 you cannot put a memory stick in it. It hardly has any internal memory which is rather annoying. However, I had the D&G version which has an memory slot. I would recommend getting that version purely because it has more memory, and it looks better! It doesn't have many features and it is quite basic. So on that basis, it is probably a phone for people who just want to call and text.
The Problems I Had With It
When I was texting, I would find it quite easy to send half finished messages by mistake. I have no idea how and that annoyed me a bit. Also, some texts would be sent twice. Again, I don't know how, and it also annoyed me.
Despite the issues, I still used this phone for many years. I only very recently stopped using much, but I still turn it on every now and again to use. Therefore, I would recommend this phone, but due to its lack of features, it is mainly for people who just want to make calls and text.
