Samsung GT B3410
Advantages: Resilient with both touch screen and qwerty keyboard
Disadvantages: The touch screen doesn't work that well broke easily
I bought this phone about a year ago when the contact of my old phone ran out. I decided to buy it because I couldn't decide weather I wanted a touch screen or one with a keyboard. Luckily for me I managed to find a phone with both! This phone can be used as just as touchscreen as the qwerty keyboard can be slid out when you want to use it.
However once I got the phone it was not the amazing phone that I thought that I was going to get! First of all it is quite a big and bulky phone which is not exactly what I wanted as it bulks out your pockets when it is in there. Although there is some good aspects to it being a bulky phone as I have dropped it a dew times and it remained resilient.
Another problem I had with it was that a few months after I got it the sliding part of the phone broke making it really hard to get the keyboard out. Also I found that the touch screen sometimes didn't work properly and I had to put quite a lot of pressure on it to make it work. Then sometimes when the phone was in my pocket it would unlock by itself and ring someone without me knowing which could lead to some awkward situations!
As for the working of the phone it is quite simple to use as you can drag the apps out of a sidebar, such as facebook and notes, and use them when you want before dragging them back to prevent them clogging up the homescreen. Then there is a setting you can use the that when you slide out the qwerty keyboard the screen for sending a text pops up automatically which can be really handy!
The camera is not that brilliant quality and the phone can only store a small amount of photos and video so I was not that impressed with this aspect of the phone.
There are ups and downs to this phone but overall I don't think it was worth the money I paid for it and was a bit disappointed.
Summary: Has some good points and some bad points
