Samsung GT S8300 Ultra Touch
Advantages: Looks nice yet has a slide down keypad for when touch typing gets on your nerves!
Disadvantages: The battery life is not as good as i would hope.
I purchased this phone about 12 months ago. It took me about a week to get used to if I am honest. I am a bit technology challenged and although i wanted a touch phone I know i am better using a key pad and this phone offered me both. Not only does the phone have a up to date modern good lucking structure it also has can slide up revealing the very handy key pad.
I got my phone from Vodaphone and have a £35.00 a month contract which offers 600 minutes a month , unlimited texts and unlimited mobile internet. The only page on the mobile internet I tend to use is Facebook. The internet is fast and effective and can be zoomed for clear effective viewing.
The camera is very clear and easy to use. The only downside I find of the camera is after you take the photo it takes a good 10 seconds before it shows the photo and if you move the camera away from what you have taken the photo of too fast it can lead to a blurred photo. The video camera has excellent quality and good audio play back. I often blue tooth my video's and photo's to my computer/laptop and they come out very clear and easy to view.
The memory the phone offers is good for me personally as i do not store music on my phone but prefer to use memory for photographs and video's the phone itself also came with a memory card which has helped. The memory card was 1gb if i remember rightly.
This phone has also proved durable. I have dropped it in a large bowl of dogs water , after airing it out for 1 day it worked perfectly. I also dropped it on a iced covered pavement and the back fell off letting the battery fall out yet when I put it back together it worked fine. Overall this phone has served me well. I am happy to continue to use it. The battery life is still okay for me although I do need to charge it once every other day or once a day if i have used it for a lot of mobile internet. This phone is perfect for people who like the idea of touch screen/touch texting but with the back of a keypad.
Summary: Overall a good phone which has served me well this past year
