This isn't the most modern of phones, but I think that if you're not too bothered with having the latest model or all of the gadgets, and just want something quite basic, but still with a good range of simple functions, this is a good buy for you.
-ooo- The Product -ooo-
This is a Motorola phone, which in my experience indicates that the product will be well made and have some good features and a nice, modern design that's quite different from the rest of the phones on the market. Although this looks a little old-fashioned now, I still feel this is the case with this model. It is a clam-shell phone, with a small screen on the front as well. It has a camera, an MP3 player and you can also record video. There is also the ability to connect to the internet and download data, and there is the usual variety of games and accessories.
-ooo- Would I recommend this product? -ooo-
As I said, I don't think this is something that will excite many people. However, for those who don't want an iPhone, and want to save some money with a quality budget handset, this could be ideal.
I like the way that the little screen on the outside lets you see who is calling without having to open it up - you do this to answer the call. The design is good, and the product is well-made - it has never broken for me.
The camera is basic, and I wouldn't use it as an alternative to a digital camera, but it is useful to have, and the video options are similar. For basic, fun use, it's okay. The MP3 player also allows you to carry a variety of songs with you, and again this is another nice simple option, but not that impressive.
The internet connection isn't great, and on this small screen you can't really surf the internet very effectively - it's okay for getting sport updates or checking details or messages, but the speed is quite slow.
Overall, I think this is a nice basic phone. I don't use mine anymore, but I never had any problems with it, and would recommend it for some people.
I have had this phone on a pay-as-you-go contract for nearly 2 years now and continue to be very happy with it. It has a full colour screen and when closed, displays the time, which is very handy.
When opened up the screen is bright and colourful and you can have your own selection of wallpaper (which could be a photo you have taken if you wish). The key functions are also easy and quick to access, particularly text messages. I find the predictive text works better than on any phone I had used previously, which is good.
The camera is appreciated, but not a very good one. There is also the ability to buy an extra cable and attach it to your computer to download any photos and videos you take, which I have done.
The battery life on this phone is really excellent, lasting well over a week between charges.
Basically this phone is good at what it does. In other words, a basic, good quality phone.
