Disadvantages: looks cheap and tacky, camera not very good
I got this phone as a requested present for my little sister and haven't seen it in person but we both saw it online and she immediately told me to get it for her birthday, so I did.
I got this phone for about 50 pounds as part of a Carphone Warehouse deal and it included free delivery and 10 pounds worth of credit with T-Mobile.
Now, there have been a few problems with delivery and claiming the free credit for this phone, but you can read about that in my carphone warehouse review.
So this phone is a pink plastic flip open phone. When it arrived, I had a quick look at it just to make sure that it was the right one, and it looked pretty cheap and tacky to me but I wasn't sure if my sis would mind as she clearly really wanted this phone.
I've previously owned a Motorola phone myself but that looked of much better quality as it was made out of metal and seemed a lot sturdier than this plastic thing.
After a few days of use I asked my sis about her honest opinion and some feedback and she did admit that is was quite cheap looking compared to my old Motorola razr and that when she tried to press one of the keys, her nail print was imbedded into the plastic and wouldn't go smooth again.
This phone has so far been ok for her to send and receive calls and text messages but the camera doesn't take that high a quality pictures and she's not too pleased about that either.
All I can conclude is; have a look in the shop and test out the phone in person. You might not see what the photo quality is like but at least you'll know if it's made of cheap and tacky plastic because it often is displayed much nicer online as it would be in person.
Summary: ok budget phone but beware the cheap plastic its made of
