Samsung GT C3300
Advantages: Easy to use, touch screen, great battery life, light and compact, good camera
Disadvantages: Not much storage for text messages - fills up very easily
The criteria I was looking for when I bought my mobile a few months ago was decent quality, cheap, felt cool to hold (didn't have to be uber-stylish, but didn't want something clunky feeling either) and reliable. I have had the C3300k for about a year now and it has lived up to all those things.
The good things - the phone is very easy to use, with a really good touch screen. The camera is really good, especially for a phone of that size. It has a lot of features for this type of basic phone. One of my favourite things is the amazing battery life - one of the reasons I went with Samsung as I had previously had a Samsung with really good battery life. Sometimes I get surprised when it needs charging because I've almost forgotten that it needs charged ever just because it's been so long I can't remember the last I charged. I've not used all the features, especially the internet based ones because that can be expensive on pay as you go, but if you're looking for something that does the standard things you'd expect, and do them well, this is really good. It's really light, compact and to be honest, I also like that it is really shiny!
The bad things - there isn't much storage for text messages. 300 isn't a tiny number (I remember when it used to be about 10!) but my previous mobile held thousands and I like to keep funny or special texts. So I do have to spend a reasonable amount of time every so often running through texts deleting them (and every time you do, it defaults back to the most recent so it can take a while). It sometimes slips off hold in my bag (a button on the side puts it on and off hold), only occasionally, but I have picked it up on one occasion to find it sending my last text to about a quarter of my address book leading to some very confused friends and family!
Of course it is natural to remember the bad things and take the good things for granted and overall, I'm glad I bought this phone.
Summary: Good phone for someone who wants a cheap phone with a good range of features.
