Disadvantages: No camera
Now I don't really know how different this phone is to others like it but I've got this as my 'travel phone' for when I go walking and on holiday.
It's easy to use. That's really what I was going for with this phone. It's easy to add contacts and answer calls. It tells me the time on the start up screen and I don't even have to unlock it. The way to unlock it is annoying, using the keypad which nobody seems to want to use nowadays. I'd much rather have a small button on the side or top so that i could easily activate and deactivate the phone but that's the way that it is with these simpler phones.
I don't really use it for this purpose whatsoever but I just thought I should add that it comes with all the standard, classic games like snake and other old timers. I'm sure though if you're buying this phone, your main thought isn't going to be to play games.
Battery life. WOW. This phone can last for, what feels like, a flipping century! I can leave it on for about 3 weeks give or take a few days until the phone finally begins to lose battery. That part I'm pleased with as if I go away on a long holiday or a walk I don't even have to bring the charger with me. It's truly impressive and very useful!
With the extra features for the phone there isn't really much to tell to be truly honest. There's no camera which is a shame. I t could really do with one the it would be the perfect simple phone. It's pretty slim and very, very light to hold. It's also surprisingly sturdy. You would think that it would break almost instantly when you drop it on a hard surface because it feels quite fragile but it's actually very sturdy. I've dropped it on rocks, roots, my kitchen floor, concrete, and all manner of other hard things. Very sturdy indeed.
It does also have the standard things like a stopwatch, a timer, calculator, alarm, and a calendar which I've utilized quite often. I never actually put anything on the calendar in my kitchen I just store everything on the phone. The phone does also actually have a currency converter which is good but with the unstable market and all that not really much use.
The phone has an alright memory of 32GB which again, without any photos, videos music or the modern day apps will suffice. The phone for contacts is OK as well as it can hold up to 200 contacts in its storage. It can actually play music but again, if you are getting this phone I highly doubt that this is what you will be using it for.
Overall I can say that It's a brilliant phone for more simplistic phone users. For a teen, not so much. But, for what I use it for, it definitely serves its purpose.
Summary: Again, good at what it does and very reliable
