I am not a fan of this phone. I found making phone was quite awkward and fiddly, with the keypad not being very responsive, if I tried to dial a number, it would take a few seconds for it to appear - it seemed to be very slow to respond and sometimes just completely froze.
The phone was an upgrade from a U600 which I'd had the exact same problem with, leading me to think it wasn't the phone or I've been unluckly enough to buy two duff ones in a row.
The display was good enough for me personally and although the respolution may not seem so great in the specs above I found it was OK for the most part. Additionaly the phone has a 5MP built in camera with a flash, good for taking that odd, unexpected photo for relatively close up shots. The photos produced by it aren't too bad and would do if you didn't intend to capture mega fine detail or blow them up. As always with camera phones though I still take an ord inary camera with me for special occasion or holidays as the resolution is much better and has a variety of extra features that phones don't. For distant objects a lack of zoom may be a problem. Still, it's one of the phone's better features.
The built in memory is only small at 55MB, but support for SD cards means this really isn't a problem. The best selling feature of this phone is it's weight and size - both of which are very low. Having said that I don't think it makes up for this phones flaws and after a few months I sold it on.
I've never used the bluetooth or video recording on this phone so can't comment on them.
The sim free model can be bought for around £100 sim free depending on where you get it, but I wouldn't bother. There are much cheaper and more basic ones for people who just want a phone (and probabvly more reliable to) and if you're looking for a high end phone then this one will just seem outdated and sluggish compared to the high end phones around at the moment.
Summary: Mid range phone that's best avoided
