Advantages: Great at being a phone
Disadvantages: not great at being a camera or mp3 player
I got this phone about a year ago as my first contract phone, I chose this particular one because it was free on my contract and I wanted a touch screen, the touch screen on this is very responsive. It also comes in a nice girly pink which is great as my brother has the same one in black. It's a nice looking phone with rounded edges and a large screen, it is also quite durable I have dropped it a lot but it is still working fine.
The battery life is very good it lasts for days sometimes even weeks before I need to charge it - this depends on your usage if you have the back light on for a long time then it wont last as long.
I find this phone a very simple one to use, on the menu everything is in sensible easy to find places and I didn't need to read the manual at all.
This comes with a cable and disk for connecting to the computer this is for the transfer of files - photos and music mostly, this is very easy to use and has a tutorial on screen. The memory on the phone isn't great, you can't use it as an mp3 player just store the song your using as a ringtone. You can't use it as a digital camera either, the camera is okay quality but not fabulous and as mentioned before there isn't much memory so it is fine for sending picture messages if you don't want to store the pictures.
There are some apps available for this phone but not many, you can also download games for it there are some provided but most just have a trial time and they are all quite rubbish.
I also chose this phone because I wanted to be able to go onto the internet easily and update my facebook etc, it is very good for that there is a social network app on it already which enables you to access all your social network feeds (Facebook, twitter, bebo, myspace etc) in one place. But on some web sites you cannot use predictive text which is very frustrating.
The alarms on this phone are fantastic, I often struggle to get up for work but you can set many multiple alarms for different times. I have had up to ten set, I don't know if there is a limit but if there is it is a high one. You can also set them to be very loud.
If you are looking for a phone which is good at being a phone, for ringing and texting people then this is a great one with the added bonus of easy internet access. But if you want it to also be a digital camera, mp3 player and computer then you probably want an iphone.
Summary: I would recommend this if you want a phone for phoning people.
