Advantages: Great quality, Low Sar; Long lasting
Disadvantages: Incompatible with latest Apps
I got my Samsung J700i as part of a package, so it wasn't an active choice on my part. But, now, I would positively try to get another one.
The phone is incredibly easy to use and really robust. It sits in my handbag or back pocket most of the day and, in the 4 years I've had it, I've not had any problems. The slide feature is brilliant - no more 'pocket dialing' for me! I had been worried that the slide mechanism might make the phone too flimsy and that I would break it within 6 months, but the phone has taken everything I've managed to throw at it. The keys are very positive to use, which I like, and it's great to be able to turn the 'beeping' of the keys off.
It comes with all the usual basic features; alarm, calendar, langauges. It has a couple of basic games - enough to keep a small child amused for 5 minutes while you are queuing for something, but nothing like the Apps you get on the latest phones.
For me the major plus is the low SAR level. I am convinvced that high SAR phones will be shown to cause health problems and always get a low SAR phone. This one has a euro SAR rating of 0.499 (the limit is 2.00) which is excellent.
If you want an Iphone, you will be disappointed - the J700i doesn't do any of the fancy stuff - but if you want a good quality, budget phone that has a low SAR rating, this one is perfect.
Summary: Perfect safe, robust budget phone
