Advantages: Nice looking, easy to use, good battery life
Disadvantages: Freezes occasionally
This was my last phone, except mine was the pink, illuvial version. I have to admit, I was in a hurry in the phone shop and didn't really put a lot of time or research into choosing this phone. I just really liked that it was pretty and the guy in the shop said it was good, so thought I would give it a go. I hadn't had a Nokia since my first ever phone, and usually bought them for my Mum as they are so simple to use.
A few days in and I was hooked, I absolutely loved the phone. It was really easy to use, had lots of good functionality and the battery really lasted well. I downloaded a few apps and they worked well, however I had the phone before I really started using the internet on in, so can't comment too much on this.
It's an 'xpress music' phone, so I did download a lot of songs on to it and use it as my main MP3 player, which worked really well. The sound was good and I found that I used it a lot in this way as it was easier than having a separate MP3 player.
I had the phone for almost 2 years and had no real problems with it atall. I have now sold it to my Mother In Law and she has had it for over a year. She uses it every day and gets on really well with it, despite not being particularly savvy when it comes to technology (bless her).
The only thing I will say is that it will occasionally freeze. The screen will go black but the bottom lights will stay on. It's easily rectified by taking the battery out and putting it back in, but not ideal. That said, it probably only happens once every couple of months max and doesn't really affect the usage of the phone.
A lovely phone which I would recommend to anyone - it's a great option as a first introduction to touch screen phones, as it was for me.
Summary: Great for anyone looking for an easy to use, practical smartphone
