Disadvantages: Shows it's age
The Samsung D900 was one of phones I wouldn't have minded sticking with but unfortunately I lost the back cover and the battery kept slipping out easily so I had to replace it.
It is a slide phone meaning that everything is neatly concealed 'under the hood' I find this extremely helpful as you can't accidentally text someone jibberish whilst it's in your pocket and it's a huge space saver which is always a good thing.
It has buttons as opposed to a touchscreen which is often preferable as I personally prefer non-predictive text but that is a very hard thing to do on a touchscreen.
The menu is extremely simple to get through and navigate, the contact list also has no weird quirks and this phone has never glitched or crashed on me in the 2 years I had it. The buttons do tend to fade though, in particular the 'answer' and 'hang up' buttons would turn a block green and red colour respectively.
The camera on it is OK. I wouldn't count on printing any of the photos out and framing them, however, if you want to take a picture of your drunk mate with a traffic cone on his head then this works perfectly!
The Video is of the same quality so don't expect an oscar for your latest clip of you shaving his eyebrows in his sleep.
It charges by a charger that is supplied with the phone and plugs into any standard 3-pin socket, it does not charge when connected to the computer which I find a bit of a hindrance but it's easy to work with this. It connects to PC via a wire particularly made for this phone so I recommend getting all of your stuff on the phone in one go as the wire is quite small and easy to lose and also the computer does not recognise the phone every time and the software is just plain awkward and annoying, hard to navigate and slow.
The phone can play actual recordings which is handy if you don't want to be stuck with the standard polyphonic ringtones that come with and if you find yourself running out of memory then I suggest just upgrading the memory card, it uses a mini SD card.
If I never lost the back of this phone it'd be safe to say I'd still be using it as it is actually a lot more reliable than the phone I own now (samsung tocco) and seems to have less issues than most modern phones. I highly recommend this phone for someone who doesn't need the latest gadgetry!
Summary: A good phone for the price
