Cheap and has many functions on paper, but is it worth it?

Disadvantages: Features are of Poor quality
The Samsung E2121 is a cheap phone with decent features but is it worth buying in the 1st place, lets find out.
The phone can be purchased from £7.95 plus top-up (depending on network) from many high street retailers. It has bluetooth, mp3 player, memory card support and even a camera.
The phone design is bar form and not really a looker, weights a bit but it is very durable. The screen is really small and the quality is bad with poor colours and poor resolution display with the keypad made out of rubber and a bit squeaky.
It takes a memory card with support up to 2gb (which is not a lot for some) micro SD format. The mp3 player is not smooth as as the Iphone or even other cheap phones such as the Samsung GT-E250. Since there is no headphone jack an adapter would need to be purchased since the original headphones are poor quality and uses a Samsung connection. Bluetooth connectivity had some problems since certain bluetooth headsets did not connect properly (maybe due to the particular unit I used). The camera quality is VGA, and not even worth taking any pictures on the phone.
There is no real internet on this phone which is a must for a lot of user today, with only GPRS which is really slow and I could hardly access many sites from it.
The only positive factor for this hone that is makes capable calls and text, then again anything that is called a phone should do this.
If you are buying this phone for a very young kid then go for it, otherwise spend a little bit extra and get the Samsung GT-E250.
Summary: A Cheap phone good enough for a kids first phone
