Samsung GT E1170
Advantages: Calls and texts
Disadvantages: no camera or any special function
I am the clumsiest man in the world when it comes to mobile phones and this is not helped by my natural reaction to throw and try and catch the thing. I constantly drop them and destroy them. This is why I have gone so many of the cheaper varieties of phones. The Samsung E1170 was another of these cheap phones and it only cost me ten pounds.
What the mobile essential had to offer was phone calls and texts. This was supported by a staggering 600 minute talk time and 648 hour stand by time. I am actual amazed at how good the battery was. I would use my mobile constantly for up to 3 days without it even being pushed for a re charge.
The phone was rather basic. It had a the usual applications such as a calculator, convertor, timer and stopwatch. It also included a torch light which I found quite handy when trying to put my keys in the door at night.
Navigating around the phone was simple. You used the big button in the middle to select from the functions in the menu: call log, phonebook, calendar, memo, messages and games. There is a tetris game (classic) and a jewel game that was rubbish.
When making calls the sound quality was good. You received a clear and projected voice and you could adjust the sound with the directional buttons on the phone.
I am clumsy with my phones and I did actually crack the screen on this one. I did drop it on concrete so you can't really blame the quality of the phone. All though there was a crack on the screen the phone still worked fine.
The memory is ok on the phone being able to hold 200 contacts and 250 messages. Although this was ok for me I would've preferred more room to hold messages.
All in all the phone is basic that makes clear calls and is easy to text with. For under ten pounds I cannot fault it.
Ps. I actually lost this phone before I had the chance to drop it one last time.
Summary: a cheap basic phone
