An everyday mobile phone - good for kids
Author Name: Feral78
Advantages: robust, lightweight, great battery life, budget price
Disadvantages: lack of features, small screen, no internet
This is the phone I bought recently purely for work use. It is built for text messaging and calls and not much more. So, if that's what you are looking for then this phone is for you.
The battery lasts for a very long time indeed unlike today's smartphones. The mobile is quite sturdy and can take a little rough-handling. The screen is small and, of course, it's not a touch-screen. There is a built-in torch and a radio - two unexpected extras. The torch is surprisingly bright and can be useful for dropped keys etc. The charger is small and very lightweight indeed.
If you need to buy a phone for your child to enable them to keep in contact with you then this is a great buy. However, your teenager will NOT thank you for buying them this one as it's no smartphone, however, nor is it Bergerac-size so nobody will get too much stick for being seen with this, one would hope! If you are under 30 and want a giggle then you may have to Google 'Bergerac phone'.
You buy it for £15.00 but £10.00 of that is credit so the phone is £5.00. It's a great phone for a festival as it's no terrible loss if misplaced. If you need a phone to be...well...a phone, then get this.
Summary: a great little budget phone built for calls and texting
