A long Lasting Phone For A Slide!
Member Name: thedarkfighter
Advantages: Quite tough, good slide mechanism, easy to use
Disadvantages: Terrible camera, awkard battery compartment, easy to unlock by mistake
I was using this phone for around 2 years and its technically still alive and fully working. The phone is super easy to use and the flat profile of the number buttons makes it easy to glide between them whilst texting. This also means that the pressing of a button isn't always obvious or satisfying. The menu system is simple and well laid out and will give you no trouble in finding what you need. The vibrate function on the phone is quite good and I always noticed it. The battery compartment can be an absolute pain to get open sometimes if you are in a rush but that's normal these days.I did however find that the slide joint started to feel slightly more loose and a bit wobbly after a few months but at no point has it become anything serious. The slide mechanism is very satisfying when you first get the phone and has a snap to it so you always knew how far it had to go but the resistance goes over a shortish time. I can however testify that these phones can take a fair bit of abuse! My best friend managed to keep hers running for over a year and a half which for her is a record as she has horses who have managed to unintentionally wreck her phones before! The camera is absolutely terrible in this phone as is the sound recorder but to be fair, in the price range its to be expected!
Summary: A great, tough phone but not very feature heavy due to price point
