Advantages: Fantastic battery life, easy to use
Disadvantages: Not the most up-to-date
Just over the Christmas period, typically, since all shops and services are shutting down, my HTC smart phone broke, and I could no longer access my text messages. Considering that I live with my phone in my hand, and that I pay almost £30 per month for the contract, I decided to get a cheap phone which I could use with my contract SIM to still get the advantage of my unlimited texts and calls until I could get my phone fixed.
I went into Tesco and picked the cheapest phone which would fit my needs, which was this one. At just under £10 I thought it was really worth the money, even though it is intended as a temporary measure. Having been used to a smart phone, I had forgotten how few functions these phones had - just one game, and very few theme/colour options, and I really miss the camera and internet functions! But it does the job! And one thing which really was a pleasant surprise, was the battery life!! Usually I charge my HTC every night, or at least every second night. I have had this little Samsung since before Christmas and I have charged it twice! Absolutely fantastic.
The display size is 1.43 inches, is 1.8 inches wide total, 4.2 inches long and half an inch deep. I was also pleasantly surprised at the light weight - just 65g.
All in all, the phone was really good value for money, and although it is very basic, it has a good feel and a good quality - at least it doesn't fall into a million bits when I drop it like my HTC!
Summary: Absolutely ideal temporary replacement
