      Flip phone, easy to use, takes pictures, plays nice tunes.

      This years phone is a Samsung. I wanted a flip phone, I wanted to take photos (goodness knows why, I have a great camera) and I wanted one that looked good! Not for me a phone that I knew how to use, but never mind, I can learn anything.

      It turned up one day and I excitedly opened the box and plugged it in to charge it. I read through the instruction booklet which is easy to read, all in English and with clear instructions.

      I inserted the battery, and transferred my sim card from my old phone. I had a look at all the different funcions and found my phone book, which surprisingly was full of all the phone numbers that I had stored on the sim card, clever eh?

      On the front of the phone the display shows the time, the date, the level of battery left, the service level which disappears if you go out of range and there is a little icon if you have set the alarm or put it on silent mode. there is a small button on each side, one lights up the display when closed and adjusts the in call volume when in use. The other works the camera while the phone is closed, this takes photos that face the front of the phone, that means you can take pics of yourself, I have tried this and believe me they aren't flattering, I won't do that again.

      When you open the phone the screen lights up and you can play around with the menus and find out where things are just like I did.

      It has all the usual things, text messages, tunes/tones, games, internet browsing, takes photos and short videos with sound, it has a calculator and a calendar, you can set reminders for appointments and there is a currency converter which is great when you are in a different country and to top the lot it makes and receives phone calls.

      You can change the settings, change the wallpaper that shows when the phone is idle, change the way the displays show and change the time and date if needed.There is network selection and security settings here too.There is also a voice recorder, not sure why you would want to record your voice but no matter, maybe to record an answerphone message.

      This is a neat little phone, smaller than any I have had before and I found the buttons just a little close together, but I soon got used to them.

      Mine is silver in colour with a navy blue facia.

      I have used this phone now for almost a year and have got used to having it with me, at work I can put it on silent mode and pop it in my pocket and forget all about it until it is time to go home, then I can check if anyone has called or sent me a message. The messages can be sent as sms's, which are ordinary text messages, they can also be sent as picture messages and postcard messages, so lots of choice.

      I use the alarm when I am working early shifts and it is loud enough to wake me quickly, although I will say some of the tunes can be annoying first thing in the morning.

      When talking on the phone I can adjust the volume if I need to depending on the level of background noise, this is useful if the phone rings in a crowded place.

      Browsing the internet is fun and can be good for finding travel problems out before you go anywhere. There are plenty of settings for browsing the internet, you can also play online simple games, download ringtones and pictures, catch the news and send emails. It is possible to email my photos to my computer, I haven't bothered with this yet but may before I change my phone again.

      The camera is pretty good, it take photos at VGA (640x480) and they are clear enough to look at or have as your display, there are various settings on the camera like changing the tone of the picture or adding a frame.

      The battery lasts a few days if I don't use the phone much, I tend to plug it in most nights even though the battery lasts much longer. Taking pictures or playing games takes a lot of battery.

      This phone came with a battery, charger, car charger, and instruction book, no fancy extras like in car hands free set, but enough for me.

      I have this phone on a monthly contract so didn't pay for it, I got it as part of an upgrade. I can't find a price in all the usual places on the internet probably because most phones come as part of a package nowadays.

      I have dropped the phone a few times and it still works fine, so fairly shock proof. It isn't waterproof though, so don't drop it in water or it won't work any more.

      I hope this review is helpful or useful to someone.
      Thanks for reading, Sue
